“Unbelievable day!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Back in July me and my wife went on a trip to wine country. I set up a list of 4 boutique wineries and selected intimate wine tours to drive us. Hotel Yountville highly recommended them. We were elated with the professionalism and helpfulness they showed. After 3 July trips in a row to Napa area, with a driving service, they were hands down the best and quite a bit more affordable. Will definitely be using them again!

“Awesome Experience with Josh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Just finished a tour of Napa with Initimate Wine Tours. We had Josh as our Driver (who you should ask for). He was fantastic. He was professional, nice and cool. He was very knowledgable of the different wineries and the history of Napa. He had lots of great ideas on where to get lunch and different things to do and see. He also kept us on track throughout the day. The organizing before the trip from IWT was great and the experience with Josh throughout the day was awesome.

Moreover, we are so pleased that you had such a great time with Josh. He is very knowledgeable of not only the Napa valley, but its rich and indepth history.

“Excellent wine tour service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

When we got to Napa, we were very overwhelmed. There are so many wineries, and it's very hard to figure out which wineries to visit, what to do at each, and how to get everywhere. Our hotel recommended Intimate Wine Tours, and they were so helpful from start to finish. Susan helped us plan our itinerary, and we were so happy with the wineries we visited and the tours that she arranged. We were able to go to a wide variety of places and do all kinds of different tours and tastings. Our driver, Tom, was wonderful. He was so informative and nice, and he made the day go by without a hitch. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We had a great experience. Great company!

On behalf of the entire Intimate Wine Tours team we thank you for selecting our wine tour company. Agreed, it can be very overwhelming and daunting when it comes to selecting which wineries to visit within such a short period of time. Therefore, one of the hallmark advantages of booking with Intimate Wine Tours, is that we ask the appropriate questions regarding your personal wine preferences. With that being said, we can then determine which wineries will provide you with an amazing experience and wine since time is of the essence. Susan truly does an amazing job listening and figuring out the clients' preferences towards wine. We are so pleased to hear that you had such a wonderful experience. Thank you again and we look forward to providing you with another great wine tour with Intimate Wine Tours.
With warm regards,
Tom

Our day in the Napa region was fun, informative and filled with great wine. Josh was friendly and knowledgeable and made sure we arrived on time to all of our appointments. Sue's recommendations for a tour, tastings and lunch were perfect. We'll definitely connect with Intimate Tours on our next trip to Napa!

Our hotel arranged our wine tour through "Intimate Wine Tour". What a great time we had! Our driver Josh picked us up at our hotel and was wonderful! He was so informative, he knew so much about the area and the best places to eat! When we come to Napa again, for sure we would call Josh!
