We had 7 of us touring Napa Valley for 4 days. We hired Lonnie to pick us up in San Francisco and he drove us the entire time we were there. The price adds up but it was worth every penny. His vehicle is brand new and fit all of us comfortably, including our luggage. Lonnie is timely and a... More

Lonnie made our 10 yr anniversary great. He has great access to the well know winery's and hidden local gems. Every restaurant he picked was also great. What a great trip.

Some friends of mine wanted to do a Napa Valley wine tasting day. One of them had previously had a terrible experience via a Groupon deal. Having previously toured with Lonnie, I was able to say "I've got a guy." Lonnie as he had previously done, exceeded my expectations. Lonnie has very deep connections and relationships in the Napa Valley... More

Five of my closest friends, and I stayed in Yountville for my bachelorette getaway. We didn't bring a car, so we booked Lonnie's services to take us around to some vineyards. He even set up all the tastings, and took us to a great little market for lunch. We had such an amazing experience. I would highly recommend Lonnie.

After reading many wonderful reviews on trip advisor we booked Lonnie for our first trip to Napa. From start to finish it was a beautiful day. Lonnie arrived right on time, or even a little early, and took us to three fabulous wineries. He was full of wonderful tidbits of information that made the day more special. Thank you Lonnie....

We gathered in Napa for a long weekend and hired Lonnie Smith for a day of wine tasting. It was absolutely the best decision of the weekend! He helped with winery selections based on our feedback, scheduled reservations, and found the best roadside lunch spot! He was prompt, knowledgeable and ever so helpful. Lonnie took all the stress out of... More

My friend and I went to Sonoma/Napa not really knowing how to best tackle the overwhelming number of vinyards/wineries. Some friends of mine had used Lonnie, giving him a glowing recommendation, so I, too, booked him for a day-long excursion - below are some highlights. 1. Lonnie is extremely knowledgeable about who has the best varietals based on your taste,... More

Can I give him 10 stars?? My friend and I hired Lonnie for the weekend during a girl's trip to Napa. After reading everyone's reviews we knew we had to give him a try, and he definitely didn't disappoint. We started off with a few places we wanted to go and then let him take it from there. We told... More

Really nice guy who can take you to all the cool off-the-beaten-trail vinyards and wineries. Very nice and professional. He is well connected in the community and the owners of the places we visited kept showing him their latest creations to get his expert opinion. Well worth the money!
