I never post reviews. If you are going to the Napa region and want to make the smart choice of hiring a driver...Steve Gardner is your man. We are from Canada and had never been to this part of the world before so based on reviews we hired Steve and left the planning of our day to him. And, we had a wonderful day. Professional, personable and reliable but what was most impressive is that local people we did not even know were telling us what a smart decision we had made by hiring Steve. Folks...you do not know me from a hole in the ground...but trust me....you will not go wrong with Steve Gardner.

Best decision we made for our Napa vacation - hiring Steve Gardner to do the driving. He was very knowledgeable, personable and easy to work with. He made the day even more fun. He shared lots of information about the wineries to help us make an itinerary for the day and all his recommendations were right on. Enjoy the wine and don't worry about driving - hire Steve.

My husband and I booked Steve for a wine country trip and from the beginning, he exceeded our expectations. He offered insight the region, wineries and other tips that you can't find anywhere else (i.e. is there an expectation to purchase? how do we ship home?).

When we received our rental car, Steve took things from there. He called the local Hertz and handles all the paperwork so we didn't need to think twice about it.

Steve was prompt to pick us up and then had an ice chest for our journey so if/when we picked up wine, it was safe. He offered to pick up lunch on the go and called ahead to wineries when we were running early. He really did make the whole day that much more enjoyable since we didn't have to worry about anything, especially driving!

Highly recommend.

We booked Steve as our driver for our 1 day tour in Napa and we had only made arrangements with Opus one and Gargiulo vineyards ourselves leaving the rest of the day open to be planned by Steve who recommended Caldwell and Neiman wineries and the entire day was filled with fun, drinks and laughter...Steve really took the time prior to the trip to understand what it was we wanted and planned the day really well. He even took the liberty in booking the restaurant Redd for us when I found out they wouldnt take bookings too early in advance. Steve was just fantastic, super connected and extremely knowledgable and I'd recommend him to anyone travelling to Napa in a heart beat!!! Thanks Steve!!!

Steve was our friendly driver for a 2 day tour of Napa and Sonoma. He was very knowledgable about the area, wineries, restaurants etc. Steve was very helpful and easy going. Steve's got a great presence, so it was kind of like having a bodyguard and tour guide all in one! Worked out great having Steve drive our rental car. Will definitely call him next time.
