We were fortunate to go on a beautiful day. We toured 3 Boutique wineries. None of the wine was exceptional (personal preference not critique), but the presentations were very good. Nice ambiance on outside patios. It would have been nice to go to a winery where you can actually purchase their wines in stores not direct only. We are Canadian so joining their wine clubs was not an option even if you loved the wines. We would have loved to have gone to Robert Mondavi or other well known winery. Bus driver was knowledgeable about region and wines. An enjoyable day. Wish we had time to do a second day.

We were very happy getting to know three vineyards. Mr. Tomas' guide was entertaining and those who greeted us at each vineyard were very friendly. We just felt very "rushed" always to be on the bus again, although they gave us schedules, I feel that they rushed a lot before the time and it became stressful to be on the bus before time.

When we saw 4.4 stars of evaluation we had doubts about taking it, but it was one of those available on these dates, however, take it for those who are thinking about it! It is 100% recommended and our guide Gregg is the most valuable thing about the Tour, he gives you not only the necessary time in the vineyards but also many facts about the city, Napa and Sonoma is a very polite and pleasant person. The beautiful vineyards and the very friendly people who serve you, the bus of excellent quality, clean, etc! 100 stars for this tour, I had already gone to another one years before and this one is much better…
