“A True Napa Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

We celebrated our Christmas break with a private 2 day wine tour. We had the best trip ever! Our first day was with Alex and he was highly knowledgeable about every winery and destination. Our second day was with David. He was very charming and responsive.

Susan is a doll to work with and will go the extra mile for you every time. We have already recommended this tour to our family and friends.

We love Intimate Wine Tours!

“ALEX IS AMAZING!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

We arrived in Napa for Thanksgiving without plans for a driver. We were unsure who to call and our concierge at the Andaz highly recommended Alex with Intimate. He was available and hosted us for two different days. We frequent Napa and have had multiple drivers from other companies but Alex was the most knowledgeable and took us to some great wineries we had never been to. He was so fun, friendly and really made sure we had a great experience! Alex is the best! We would definitely use him in the future and recommend him to anyone. You won't be disappointed.

On behalf of the entire Intimate Wine Tours team we thank you for booking with our company. Alex always does an amazing job as all of our guests enjoy his personality, hospitality and knowledge. Yes, there are a lot of drivers within the wine country. However, we make it a paramount objective to not only hire a "driver," but an extremely knowledgeable and well informed wine tour guide. One of the many advantages of booking with Intimate Wine Tours is being paired with a wine tour guide such as Alex. Since Alex is a native to the wine country region he brings a deep level of wine country history, information and knowledge that is thoroughly enjoyed by all of our guests. He makes the tour very educational, yet on a light level, so the guests are able to sit back, relax and truly enjoy their vacation. Again, it was entirely our pleasure and we are so elated that you had such a great time with Alex. We look forward to seeing you in the future and to provide you with another exceptional wine tour experience with Intimate Wine Tours.
With warm regards,
Tom

“Perfect way to enjoy Napa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

This was our first time in Napa and we were not familiar with the best approach to enjoying the wineries with out paying to much for transportation. Hotel Yountville pointed us in the direction of Intimate Wine Tours and we are very grateful. Josh was our driver and he made our day of wine tastings very enjoyable. My wife and I visited 5 wineries, so you could imagine how much chatter we tossed his way over the 5.5 hours. He was very knowledgable of the area, and just great company in general. I highly recommend this company and I would ask for Josh if he is available.

“Girl's Hit the Town !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

Recently returned from an amazing trip to Cali. Our first stop was Napa. We stayed at the Westin Versa and was recommended to use Intimate Wine Tours by our hotel concierge. We called and spoke with Susan to set up a designated driver for our wine tasting the following morning. Susan was very knowlegable about the differnet wineries in the area and arranged a perfect schedule for us. All I asked was to see a cave winery. David our driver meet us in the lobby of our hotel on time and took us to the first winery Trefethen great wine, wonderful people running the place, then off to the Oakville Grocery to pick up our picnic lunch which we ate at teh St Clement Winery at a reserved table on the hillside under the sun, then off to Pride WInery up on the top of the mountain to see our cave and then to our last stop Alpha Omega, totally relaxing . Everything was so special we enjoyed our day with no stress of drinking and driving !! Only way to do Napa especially when no one wants to be the "DESIGNATED DRIVER"

Thank you again for your wonderful review and positive feedback. Susan always does an excellent job carefully listening to the clients' requests and expectations. She is fantastic in reservations as she treats each client as she is their very own personal concierge. Susan attentively listens to the clients, always asks the right questions, as she ascertains what their specific interests and preferences are regarding wine and their unique palates. David is an excellent wine tour guide as all of our clients always enjoy his company, demeanor and charming personality. Personally, I have to say that David is one of the friendliest and most down to earth individuals that we know. We are very grateful to have him as a wine tour guide. Again, we are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed all of your winery visits as Susan did put together an excellent itinerary. We look forward to when we can see you again and plan another fantastic wine tour with Intimate Wine Tours.
With warm regards,
Tom
