Napa and Sonoma Wine Country - Full Day Tour from San Francisco

2,381 reviews
This Northern California Wine Country tour from San Francisco eliminates the hassle of arguing over who is the designated driver for the trip. Stop at various wineries in Napa and Sonoma and ride safely in an air-conditioned coach with reclining seats and an onboard restroom for comfort and convenience. You even have time at Sonoma Square Plaza to eat lunch at your own expense.

Tom Jarman was invaluable to me while planning our trip to Napa/Sonoma for 4 couples. Covid was making planning for a group this size very difficult. He listened to our wants, and scheduled our very exclusive, small production wine tours. At every winery we went to, we were the only guests. Very Covid friendly! Tom arranged for lunches at our stops, suggested amazing restaurants for dinner and even made those reservations for us too! The Mercedes van that we rode was extremely comfortable and we were able to play our own music from our phones. He made the planning very easy for me and even gave us all a gift at the end. Tom was extremely knowledgable in everything Napa/Sonoma. I can speak for all of the couples in saying that this was our best wine tasting trip and Destination Napa is the only company that we will be using from now on when visiting.

I don't think I could rave enough about Tom. I was planning a surprise 40th for my husband and Covid was making things very difficult. I was referred to Tom from another driver who didn't have a car big enough to fit my initial party. I spoke with Tom and gave him a synopsis of my husband ie which wines he likes, wineries he's been to in Napa and around the world and his wine knowledge and let Tom take it from there. He knew I didn't want to go to all the commercial feeling wineries and wow did Tom nail it. My husband was completely blown away. Everyone raved about how great every winery was that was off the beaten path and when we go back to Napa Tom will be our first call. I'd hands down recommend Tom to ALL my family and friends. Best Napa experience!!!!

Tom created a special itinerary for us. He selected wineries that gave us a personal experience where we felt we built a relationship with the winery before we left and the wines were exceptional. Tom organized meals and snacks for our day. He surprised us with English Muffins from a specialty bakery. His knowledge of wines and Napa was incredible. What a great host.

If you are looking for an amazing, high quality Napa experience with a knowledgeable, reputable, business professional, look no further and book Tom immediately! His service is impeccable! I had been planning my husband’s 50th birthday for over a year and thought I knew the vineyards I wanted to tour. We were going to be there a week and had planned 3 days of tastings plus a fancy dinner out! I knew I wanted to hire a limo service and had done my research on rates, reputation etc! I was going to go with one of the larger limo services that overall had good reviews as long as you stayed away from driver “x”...or driver “y”! The popular company claimed they would plan your trip but after speaking with them several times, I didn’t have confidence they knew my tastes so I was on my own to coordinate all the tasting times, distances to and from the vineyards etc, all which was proving a bit challenging not knowing the area well. One of the vineyards (my bucket list, Ghost Horse) suggested I reach out to Tom @ Destination Napa and thank goodness I did!! I mentioned a couple of wines my friends and I like and while we all have different tastes and palette’s, Tom assured me he would find vineyards we were all pleased with! While I had initially planned to use Tom for only two days, he convinced me to use him for all our transportation needs. Admittedly I was a little concerned putting all my faith in this one stranger and said to a friend, this is either going to go really well or really bad! I’m thrilled to say - Tom far surpassed my expectations! Tom handled the entire itinerary, choosing boutique vineyards (as requested) and making the reservations on our behalf, planning lunch, menu’s, providing champagne before our big birthday dinner and always communicated in a timely fashion! And what’s great, Tom is choosing the vineyards and driving you personally so your not having a different driver every day or dealing with someone who doesn’t know the vineyard or what was booked for you! Plus he keeps you on schedule which can be difficult when your sitting with friends, drinking incredible wine and making memories!! As you can probably guess by reading the above, I had high expectations and micromanaged the entire process (poor Tom)! Turns out I didn’t need to!! Tom’s service and vineyard picks were above and beyond what I had planned!! What’s best about Tom’s picks, I never felt pressure to buy wines or join any of their wine clubs!! That said of course we bought wines, how could you not when you honestly feel like your drinking poetry all day long!! All the vineyards we went to had an amazing story and each one was vastly different (ie Mountain View, up on a hilltop, beautiful terrace, small pond & water fountain, caves). Plus Tom is friends with everyone in Napa (small local community) so whatever we needed he was able to help or offer advice for last minute restaurant reservations, where to shop for cheese and charcuterie and more importantly built into our itinerary the best places to stop for photo ops!! During our Napa Valley journey Tom became a friend, while still treating us like VIP clients! And while we have yet to join a wine club, I’m still ordering wine from the vineyards he took us to and just did a virtual tasting with one last night!! Special shout out to Harry & Cali at Tres Perlas and Todd Anderson of Ghost Horse/Anderson Conn Valley. Hire Tom and I’m sure he can get you in there! In closing my apologies this review is long overdue! We hired Tom for our trip in October 2019 and after returning, life got in the way. But it doesn’t change the fond memories and amazing service and experience we had with Tom! My friends and I are all planning a return to Napa, whenever COVID-19 is behind us! Not sure when that will be but Tom will be my first call (and to secure appointments at the 2 places above 😊) Thank you again Tom!

We chose Tom's company for our private tour based on TripAdvisor Reviews. I'm that person that spends hours reading and comparing and trying to find the best tour/hotel/destination etc...so if you are like me, you can officially stop here, look no further and book! Tom was initially very quick (like 30 minutes) to respond to my initial inquiry. We spoke that evening and decided that since it was our first ever visit to Napa, he should choose where we would visit. He also gave me outstanding hotel recommendations for our last minute planning. Although he was already personally committed for our date 3 days away, he planned our itinerary and set us up with one of his drivers, Mike, assuring us we would be in good hands. I cannot say enough about how WONDERFUL our day was! Mike was absolutely awesome, friendly, knowledgeable about so many things, we could go on and on. Tom's choices for us were also fabulous. We visited three very different but equally amazing wineries with a delicious lunch stop in between. He made dinner reservations for us for both nights we were there and both meals were SO good. And the following day when we were trying to decide what to do with our last few hours, they were both available immediately with recommendations and even called ahead for us to get seating at a small winery on our way out of town. I cannot say enough about how great our experience was with Mike, Tom, and Destination Napa Valley. We will certainly call them again on future visits! Highly recommend!

Dear tedg454, I'm so happy to hear you found me on TripAdvisor! T+Its a great tool to really give potential guests an idea of what to expect. Thanks for your trust in curating your itinerary! Personally visiting over 300 in Napa, I feel I have a good idea of the landscape! Thanks so much for highlighting Mike as well. He is a great guy with a resume that rivals an encyclopedia and I feel lucky to have him part of the team! Keep in touch and we hope to see you again for your second, inaugural Napa Valley trip! Tom Jarman
