We only had one evening and one day in Napa - and it was an amazing experience! Our driver Josh was great, and took us to all of the wineries he thought we would like based on us describing the type of wines we liked. Our fav place by far was darioush and the inglenook tour - so much history there. I would highly recommend this place, and keep in mind the price they give you is ALL IN. A lot of the other wineries charge tax on tax on tax! :).

Since you had such limited time in the wine country, we thank you again for booking with our company, Intimate Wine Tours. We are thoroughly pleased that you enjoyed Josh's wonderful hospitality and personality. One of the many advantages of booking with our company is receiving a very competent and knowledgeable wine tour guide. All of our wine tour guides are expertly trained to ask the correct questions about your specific preferences regarding wine. With such limited time, it is important that we narrow down and uncover your winery interests in order to maximize your wine tasting experience.

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed both Darioush and Inglenook wineries. Yes, there is a lot of history that only enhances the overall wine tasting experience. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you in the future for another wine tour.
With warm regards,
Tom

We had SUCH a wonderful time on our wine tour with David as our driver! He is a lovely, engaging and knowledgeable person and of course an excellent driver. Thanks also to Susan for coming up with a great itinerary - the wineries were perfect! We never felt rushed and it was so nice to sit back and relax and not have to worry about directions, appointments, parking, etc. A worry-free day.

I also love the business model - we'd already paid to rent a car to get from SF to Napa so why pay more just to get a fancy car? We still received the same high level of service & knowledge.

Thanks again David & Susan - we had a fantastic time!

Thank you for your wonderful feedback and for recognizing the conscientiousness, professionalism and attentiveness of both David and Susan. David is a fantastic wine tour guide as all of our guests enjoy his charming personality and friendly hospitality. He always aims to please and exceeds our guests' level of expectations. Moreover, Susan always does a fantastic job carefully listening and asking the correct questions. With this information, Susan is then able to organize an amazing itinerary that is entirely focused around the guests' specific preferences regarding wine.

Furthermore, thank you for recognizing and mentioning our incredible price point and value. There are a lot of bargains out there, but not a lot of values. With Intimate Wine Tours, all of our guests receive an amazing value starting with their phone conversation with Susan and followed up with an excellent wine tour guide. Again, we are thoroughly pleased that you had such a wonderful time and look forward to when we can provide you with another amazing wine tour experience with Intimate Wine Tours.
With warm regards,
Tom

Intimate was referred to us by our hotel as a person tour option rather than going on a pre-planned group tour of Napa.

We wanted to see vineyards at our own pace and make adjustments as we drove.

Intimate allows you to use your own rental car with a driver for you.

We hired Intimate on Friday May 2nd. Our driver was Josh.
The experience was GREAT. Josh provided us with local back ground of Napa and some suggestions on places to see.
What really stood out was the customer service Josh provided. He walked us into each winery, got us signed up for our Tastings and made sure we were comfortable before he went back to the car to wait. He didn't know if we would be gone for 15 minutes or 1 hour, but every time we walked out the door he had the car pulled up to the entrance and the doors open!
I thought Customer Service was dead and gone but Josh definitely proofed that some young adults still pride themselves on providing great customer service.

Thank you again for the tour. When we come back we will definitely call and we will tell all of our friends.

Tom was knowledgeable about Napa and all it's wineries. He was flexible in where we went. I left my jacket at one winery and he even drove back to get it when we were quite far away, while you attended another winery. He was great! Totally professional and I would highly recommend Tom and Intimate Wine Private Tours.
