“Great Experience”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Our trip to Napa was wonderful! I decided to use Intimate Wine Tours after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. Susan helped us plan our trip and had some amazing recommendations. Our driver, Josh, was a great guy and we enjoyed his company. He did a great job of keeping us on our itinerary - which wasn't always easy to do. We had a very pleasant experience with Intimate Wine Tours and would use them again.

“Excellent Napa Valley wine tour”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Intimate Wine Tours were one of two recommendations from the hotel we stayed at. I am glad we chose the personal customised service of Intimate rather than the multi - party bus option. Josh Miller our guide, a native of Napa was excellent and very helpful and accommodating and was always able to add a bit if local flavour to every visit. I would recommend no more than 4 winery visits split by lunch, (there are many excellent restaurants to chose from as we'll as the local deli); apart from not knowing what wine you are tasting at the end of your last visit the cost tends to escalate.

We know you have many choices with regards to selecting a wine tour company and we thank you for selecting our company, Intimate Wine Tours. One of the many advantages of booking with our company is the very personalized and private nature of our wine tours, instead of being on a crowded tour bus. This way you are in complete total control of your day, with flexibility, while you get to move at your own leisure. Josh is not only an excellent driver, but an even better wine tour guide. He definitely adds to the local color and flavor with being a Napa native. We are so pleased that you had such a great time on your wine tour and we really appreciate the recommendation. Thank you again for booking with our company and we look forward to providing you with another exceptional wine tour with Intimate Wine Tours.

“Napa Tour”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

My husband, daughter, and I used Intimate Wine Private Tours for our visit to Napa. Josh was our driver. It was a great time. Josh was great and being a Napa native was an added plus. Our favorite wineries were Nickel and Nickel (great tour and really beautiful place), Caymus, and Frank Family. I booked our tour through Susan and she was flexible, knowledgeable, and fun. I would use them again and would refer them with the highest marks.

“A fun and informative day”

Alex, our guide, was wonderful. His knowledge and friendliness made for a great experience. Our day visiting wineries in Sonoma was fabulous. Alex chose a perfect itinerary. If you have only a short time in Sonoma, go with Intimate Wine Private Tours.

“The ONLY way to go!!!!!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Just back from 3 weeks in California, from Napa to San Diego ... we want everyone to know about how we spent 5 days touring Napa, Sonoma, Dry Creek, Alexander Valley and Russian River wineries with Intimate Wine Tours. IT WAS FABULOUS!!!!! I cannot brag enough about both Susan and Tom. Susan worked meticulously with me, for months, to arrange a special week of wineries personal to us, in celebration of my husband's birthday. Susan's attention to details and patience in educating me about the area put a level of comfort to the trip that I will always be grateful for - I could relax!!!!! Our personal tour guide and driver each day, Tom, was prompt, professional and extremely meticulous making each day run beyond smoothly. We can never thank you enough - your personal insight into "us" had the giggles going, the discussions deep and the touring terrific. Tom's love and passion for what he does came through in the level of comfort he instilled. We felt our great friend was driving us around, showing off his favorite spots. We trusted our trip to true professionals!!! We will be back to the Napa area because of Intimate Wine Tours - it is the ONLY way to go!!!!!!!!

On behalf of the entire Intimate Wine Tours team we know you have many choices when visiting the Napa and Sonoma wine country and we truly thank you for selecting our wine tour company. Susan always does an incredible and fantastic job handling all of the details and reservations regarding your wine tour. We are so grateful and it was our pleasure to be a part of your 3 week vacation to California. One of the many advantages of booking with our company for a multi-day wine tour is that you had the opportunity to experience all of the unique appellations that encompass the entire Napa and Sonoma wine region. With our drivers and their extensive wine country knowledge, we always pride ourselves on being much more than just "drivers," but well informed and educated wine tour guides. As we tell all of our guests, you come as clients, but leave as friends. Again, thank you for the amazing review and we are so elated that you had such a wonderful wine country vacation. We look forward to seeing you again in the future and to provide you with another fantastic wine tour with Intimate Wine Tours.
