    Our tour guide/driver was Kimmy and she was awesome! Energetic, funny, and helpful, especially with taking pictures. She actually gave us a lot more information than the people at the wineries. One problem: the air conditioning on the bus didn't work well, so we were all sweating on the ride back to SF. The winery in Napa was ehh, but the 2 in Sonoma were good. Would've liked to spend an extra 15 minutes in Muir woods though.
