Look no further Wine Tour Driver Jonathan got us to our destinations safe and on time in the comforts of our own rental vehicle. Ladies trip first time to Napa would have been a little stressful without Deanna’s help at Wine Tours. We had one vineyard in mind to visit and needed more. Deanna helped us choose the other vineyards to see and when to see them. Her concierges service was free of charge. We paid for the tasting fees and our driver, Jonathan, 6 hour minimum fee + gratuity that was well deserved. Jonathan go us from point A to B with stops along the way and back. Without Deanna’s help our trip may have been a mess, specially with the crazy going on in the world. Deanna asked a few questions and with that information gave our group suggestions via an email with links to different vineyards she felt would suit our preferences. I spoke with her many other times too via tele, so it was not just emails going back and forth. She then reserved our tastings and forwarded the itinerary onto Jonathan whom picked us up on time at our Airbnb and kept us well informed of Napa Valley. He was more like our tour guide and gave us so many suggestions on places to come back to or visit later for dinner/lunch not to mention he was indeed a safe driver. We did take advantage of his knowledge and went to a few places he suggested the next day and they were WONDERFUL, ie Brasswood! Like I said stress free when booking with wine tour drivers, specially during Covid and the September fires. We all felt safe (Jonathan kept his mask on the entire trip). When one of our vineyards cancelled the morning of (due to poor air quality) Jonathan was able to work his magic and get us into Peju which was a treat, thank you. So much fun we extended past our 6 hour minimum and had a wonderful day. Thank You, Wine Tours and we will see you again! --

We had Jennifer drive our rental car for three days. She met us (my husband, 22 year old daughter, and me) in Yountville for 2 of the days and we toured several wineries. She was a great driver, prompt and professional, and very flexible as we had to adapt our daily schedule on the fly. She also drove to the store and picked up some picnic lunch items for us when we were in one of the wineries, and then drove us to a picnic spot so we could eat before heading to another winery. The 3rd day she met us in Healdsburg and we toured wineries closer to that area for a day. I would highly recommend Wine Tour Drivers! It was competitively priced and Deanna was a good communicator during the booking process. She recommended some wineries and made a critical reservation for us at one particular winery, and she helped me develop a daily itinerary that made sense.

We found Wine Tour Drivers on-line prior to our August 2022 wine tasting trip to Sonoma. Administratively they were very easy to work with in advance of the trip and our driver was extremely professional, personable, and knowledgeable about the region and vineyards. It was nice having the same driver both (full) days as she was always prepared to accommodate our planned schedule as well as with some impromptu stops/changes along the way. Most importantly, she kept us safe and on-schedule while allowing all four of the people in our group to enjoy the beautiful scenery and our tastings. From a cost perspective, using our rental SUV and not paying for an additional vehicle/limo saved us significant money (to spend on more wine!) and I confirmed was permitted by the rental car company at no additional expense. We will definitely use them again next year and highly recommend Wine Tour Drivers when in Napa or Sonoma.

Girlfriend trip, very planned and laid out! We hired Wine Tour Drivers for Wednesday, September 30, and boy did we know where we wanted to go! We had arranged all the tastings, forwarded the info the Deanna, and sat back, dreaming of a comfortable, safe, day of terrific tastings. ALL of our plans blew up with the Glass Fire. As we landed at the airport on Monday, our phones were buzzing with cancellations, and we had seen the smoke from the plane. Deanna saved the damn day. She calmly took over our trip, cancelled all our arrangements, re-booked us later in the week, and suggested substitutions when our original wineries were unable to accommodate us. What a relief. Amazing service on the fly, one of her suggestions was a highlight of the trip, Driver
Robert took care of us during the day, we felt totally safe and appropriate visiting the wineries we did. Expert local knowledge and great customer service. THANK YOU.

Hiring a driver to drive our group on our wine trip was a perfect plan. We sent our plan to Deanna, and she provided wonderful feedback. It made for a wonderful, stress free day. She kept us on track, helped us keep our scheduled reservations and made adjustments along the way. No one had to miss out on the fun, and the price was reasonable. I highly recommend having a driver your wine tasting day, it makes the day more enjoyable and safe. Each time we arrived back at the car, a water bottle was waiting for us! Wine Tour Drivers were responsive on the days leading up the trip, and really made sure our trip was everything we hoped for. Thank you!!

Unfortunately our trip occurred during the worst rain to hit Napa in the last 25 years. This caused major changes to our itinerary and numerous cancellations by the wineries and restaurants we were scheduled to visit. While our trip did not go to plan, Wine Tour Drivers were the one group that showed up on time, provided great service, and worked with us through it all. Special thanks to Greg our driver. Would use them again.

Thank you for your review! While the rain was a major inconvenience for you we are happy to hear our service went smoothly (we miss that kind of rain!). Being a Sonoma native as well as having been in the wine industry a number of years, Greg is a perfect as a driver. Kudos to Greg!

Deanna was awesome in helping to make our week long visit to Napa truly memorable. She was super knowledgeable and had great recommendations in addition to accommodating our inputs/request for both wineries and food choices. Deanna did an amazing job of navigating the impact of the fires as we had numerous cancellations from affected business and helping us secure other reservations away from the evacuation zones. She was a pleasure to work with start to finish and we would highly recommend her for your own visits!!!!

My husband and I are convinced this service MADE our trip. From taking care of all of the bookings, to the friendly and accommodating drivers, it was a perfect choice for us to use Wine Tour Drivers. It was our first time in Napa Valley and without Deanna and Dylan we would not have been able to get the full experience. They provided waters, set us up with our lunches, kept us on time, and gave us a relaxing and stress-free experience. We will always use this service with our future trips to Napa/Sonoma. We cannot wait to come back!

Wine Tour Drivers immediately responded to me after I went through the online portal. Within 36 hours I had an email confirming my itinerary and asking any follow up questions. I then received a confirmation text from my driver who arrived a few minutes early (perfect) and even brought us some waters to make sure we stayed hydrated on our trip. Dylan was a great driver and even supplemented our tour with some fun facts about the vineyards we were driving past. I would definitely use them again with no hesitation.

Deanna and Erin were wonderful to work with. Deanna always replied in a timely manner, helping me with the itinerary for an area that was overwhelming and I knew nothing about. She was very responsive and helped guide me to the wineries for our group’s tastes and preferences. Erin was very prompt and professional, a cautious and great driver, and helped keep 8 of us on track with our plans. Highly recommend!
