“Awesome Driver, Great Experience”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We called Napa Valley Wine Tours 4 days before arriving in Napa. They assigned Eric Tracy to be our driver. He arranged all our tours and they were spot on!!! Eric was incredibly knowledgeable on the area and the vineyards. He listen to what we wanted in our wine country experience and make it happen!!! We hit 4 vineyards in one day and wow it was awesome. Loved it!

“Spectacular”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

This tour far exceeded our expectations. Abe, our driver was funny and made the whole day so fun. The Limo bus is amazing inside stocked with fruit and snacks for the trip. Every winery was friendly when we arrived and so informative. Abe prepared our lunch at a beautiful area in wine country, how perfect! We enjoyed the entire day and would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience Napa and Sonoma wineries.

“Abe and the wine country were a blast!!”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We started out with mimosas in the morning and the day just got better from there. Abe was such a character! He kept the whole day so lively and entertaining. He was such a funny tour guide. Much more than just a driver. We visited 2 wineries and then Abe prepared a fantastic picnic lunch outside. We then moved on to the last 2 wineries. At the end of our day he gave us time to enjoy the outdoors as he collected payments. There was no rush and we felt we had a perfect amount of time at each of the wineries. I would say the best part of the tour is Abe himself. He really makes the tour a total experience. He was so sweet and friendly. I would highly recommend this tour. What a great way to visit Napa.

“Napa Valley Wine Country Tours”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Abe was our driver/guide on this wonderful tour. Abe told us the history of each winery we visited and shred his wonderful sense of humor. As we traveled we were given apples, cheese, crackers and breads along with orange juice, and water. During our day we toured four wineries. We stopped several places along the way to take in the beautiful scenery. In one small town we stopped at a fresh cheese, fudge, and gelato shop, which everyone enjoyed. Each winery was located in a different part of the valley which gave the wines a different flavor. At one stop Abe served us a wonderful lunch and again shared some humorous stories with us. The trip was all day - but time just flew by. I recommend this trip and this driver to anyone.

“Not what we expected....”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Based on other's reviews, we expected this to be a relaxing and peaceful day touring Napa in the comfort's of a clean van/car with a few other like-minded people.

What we found was an oversized party bus, complete with tacky neon lights and a disco ball. The crowd was loud tourists who were clearly more interested in getting drunk than experiencing Napa Valley. I felt like I was at a bachlorette party.

Abe the driver was nice, but over the top and more like the announcer of a beer pong tournament than a tour narrator.

The tour started with mimosa's at 8:30am. Who can drink that early? This just got the other riders drunker (and louder) earlier on.

Breakfast was Costco brand bagels and croissants, cream cheese, jam and bananas.

The first winery was the best. The were all fine. Nothing that took our breath away.

The ride back to SF was the worst. After a long day of tastings and sun, we just wanted a quiet trip home. Instead, Abe blasted Michael Jackson so loud we couldn't even hear ourselves think. Not very peaceful.

I would not recommend this tour unless you are only going to Napa to get drunk and have a party experience.
