“James knows his stuff, and is very adaptable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2011

James took us to 4 vineyards. He molded the tour, based on our likes and requests. Very flexible as to length of time at any vineyard. Car was nice, much more roomy than we expected. Had several drinks stocked in the car, nice stereo, and showed us many sights along the drive. Looking back, we would not have had the same experience in Napa without Janes' tour! Thanks!

“What a great custom-made tour"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2011

If someone is interested in taking a wine tour through the Napa and Sonoma wineries, the FLEX Wine Tours is the way to go. A friend recommended them to us and we were not disappointed. Not only are they courteous but they really know what they are talking about. Previous tours we have taken were more of a cattle run than a tour and had no personal attention. Our tour guide carefully reviewed our interests beforehand and he did not disappoint us. Everything was as we expected and much more. The tour is fabulous and definitely personalized to our interests. We had a marvelous time and learned a lot about wine from them. They were very informative and in general it was a great experience. After we returned, we found many pictures of us in our e-mail that they took of our adventure. Flex Tours is the only way to go!

“Mother Daughter Trip of a Lifetime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2011

My mom and I are both avid wine drinkers, notice i did not say connoisseurs, and I took my mom to Napa as she had never been before and we decided we needed a mother-daughter trip together. James and I spoke on the phone for quite some time before our trip so he could get an idea of exactly what we were looking for and what types of things we would enjoy! I knew it was going to be great, but James exceeded our highest expectations. From the Flex car which offered ultra comfort with the captains chairs and endless snacks, waters, maps, music, internet to the fantastic off the beaten path wineries we would never have found to including some of the ones we really wanted to see, it was the best trip ever! He took us to incredible restaurants that we otherwise not have been able to get into. He even took pictures and sent them to us immediately after the trip which was a huge bonus!! i would not only recommend this to everyone i know but we will be going back very soon! He has since helped me choose wines as he has a good idea of our palettes and we've been able to continue to enjoy the wine from Napa! Call James and set up your trip of a lifetime! I'd recommend at least 2 full days but even one day would be a memorable incredible experience.

“Flex Wine Tours really knows the Napa Valley and Sonoma County.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2011

Flex Wine Tours provides a totally unpretentious, insider's view of the Napa Valley and Sonoma County. James M. really knows the wineries and the people and stories behind the wines and wineries. He's a great tour guide -- able to tell you as much as you'd like to learn, able to relax and let you chat among yourselves when you feel like relaxing.

Also, the Ford Flex SUV is a really comfortable touring vehicle. It has stadium seating, so the people in the back sit higher than the people in front of them, and it has lots of windows and most of the roof is glass, so it provides a very open feeling. The ride is comfortable going around curvy mountain roads, which is great for hitting wineries in some of the terrific mountain appellations.

James also does a nice job of bringing along snacks and water, keeping everyone comfortable between wine tastings. It's an easy, very reasonably priced touring experience -- and so much better than trying to line up appointments on your own and figure out how much time it takes to get from place to place, not to mention having to worry about drinking and driving.
