We try to take an almost annual trip to Napa. This time around we also added Sonoma to the mix so were looking for someone to take us around for about 6 days. John was excellent - very flexible in helping us figure out our appointment schedule, always ready with all of the appointments, knew both valleys like the back of his hand (was able to take short-cuts when needed). Knows tons about what's going on and who's doing new things and where to be checking out next. Very much appreciated his friendly nature. And keeps a well-stocked car with places to keep the wine cool and lots of other beverages. Will certainly look him up when we are planning our next trip!

This was such a great way to experience wine country. John was great at telling us history, making recommendations, and making sure we stayed on track and making our reservations along the way.

Our fall girls trip to Napa/Sonoma was so much fun! We were so grateful & lucky to have John (Bacchus Wine Tours) plan & deliver an amazing itinerary! John knows the wine country and was able to assist me (a Napa novice!) prior to our trip to map out a fantastic day based on the type of wine we liked & experiences we wanted to have. He arranged for us to have a picnic lunch in the beautiful Honig Vineyard. The colors were spectacular! John was a patient & gracious host to us for the day, more than a driver, we made a new friend! Thank you!

Rich was a true professional from the start. He's not only a great driver, but he helped us coordinate a picnic as well as get us VIP access to wineries throughout Sonoma. Super nice and super knowledgable!! Kept us on time to all of our tours too!! Highly recommend! He'll be driving us next time we come back!!!

We have been to Napa on several occasions, but this time we did it right! We wanted to have a driver so everyone could partake of the fun, but we also had specific wineries we wanted to visit that were off the beaten path. After searching around on the web, I located Bacchus Wine Tours. The service charges by the hour and makes all the tasting reservations ahead of time. They know the area so they were able to guesstimate how long we'd need at each place. Our driver, John (also one of the owners of the company) even went out and got us a picnic lunch while we toured one of the wineries so we were able to picnic on the grounds of the Frank Family Vineyards.

John was on time and had an immaculate, spacious, comfy SUV. He knew which back roads would get us past the Saturday traffic jams which made the drive quicker and more scenic! He's been around the area a long time too so it was nice to have someone who was familiar with the history and the restaurants. All in all it was a great experience.
