Sue and I had an entirely excellent day on Thursday November 5 Our guide Abe was excellent – humorous, knowledgeable, friendly and he made the entire day. The choice of wineries was also excellent – small family business where we learned a lot about wine and about the industry in Napa. Thanks for a most enjoyable experience.
Keith was our driver and he was the best! We chose a private limo tour. He called me several days in advance and we talked about our trip. He picked us up promptly and even accommodated our location. He had his sunny attitude and GREAT personality. He told us what we seeing on our drive and the hospitality in the limo was so much fun. Be sure to ask for Keith when you book your visit. We felt special and had the BEST time.
As a Napa native, Napa Valley Wine Country Tours is the best limousine and party bus service providing the best tours the Valley has to offer. Almost every time I come home we get a party bus to celebrate and NVWCT never disappoints. I’ve rented from services in Texas and New York and the quality of the limousines and service simply beats all the competition. It’s the only way to properly tour Napa Valley.
We recently used Napa Valley Wine Country tours on our 25th birthday vacation to San Fran and Napa. We chose the group Napa day tour leaving from San Fran. Driver Abe picked us up on time close to our hotel in Union Square San Fran in a gorgeous, brand new party bus, equipped with wood floors, leather seats, an excellent sound system and plenty of champagne glasses to go around! We were treated to delicious morning mimosas and a light breakfast of breads and cheeses. We then stopped at the Golden Gate Bridge for scenic pictures and gorgeous views. Then it was off to Sonoma and Napa! All 4 wineries we visited were unique in their own ways and delivered a true experience of both Napa and Sonoma, not to mention severed an amazing variety of wines. There were only two $10 tasting fees per person, however it was definitely worth it as the tastings were generous. Some wineries even offered a discount on wines due to driver Abe. Our favorite winery was Jacuzzi family winery due to their hospitality, gorgeous facility and delicious wines and olive oils. Lunch is included and served at one of the wineries as a picnic by a truly talented chef! 😉 It was abundant, appetizing, and very filling. My favorite was the tomato mozzarella salad and authentic falafel. By the end of the day everyone in the party bus became great friends and had such a fun time! The ride back to San Fran was full of friendly conversation, wine sharing, and great tunes. Would HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone interested in experiencing wine country in style! I can’t give driver Abe enough compliments. He was the best and truly made our experience in Napa unforgettable. Thank you Napa Valley Wine Country Tours and driver Abe! We hope to be back soon!
We booked (and absolutely loved) Stephen with Napa Valley Wine Country Tours. He was easy to contact and answered any questions we had prior to the day of our trip and was early to pick us up. If there is one thing that is important to me in a business it is customer service and punctuality. Stephen’s customer service went above and beyond. We were celebrating my 30th birthday and he gave our group some birthday treats from a local baker after our lunch, serenaded us with a live performance from his ukulele, made reservations for our next day, was our personal time keeper and photographer for the day and was just overall wonderful. We had bubbles and plenty of water for the ride as well. HIs conversation with both informative and funny. He kept us laughing the whole day. We will definitely be contacting hime again when we come back.
This was the best way to experience the Napa Valley. >From the moment we were picked up from our hotel, the special treatment, tasting discounts, extremely knowledgeable host/driver (Glenn) and shear ambiance, this was a memorable and enjoyable experience. You won’t be disappointed.
Our guide Abe was the best! He was fun and engaging all day! The bus was a fun, relaxed party environment where we were able to play our own music and interact with the other people on the tour. The four wineries we visited were excellent and they were very nice to us as Abe had a personal relationship with each location. I really feel that my time in Napa was made better because of this tour and I would come back again if the chance arises. Thank you for the great experience and wonderful memories!
Absolutely a fantastic tour! Starting with the Reid Family winery. Special service and we loved the attention. Glen, our driver was a knowledgeable, interesting and a friendly person and took us to all of the right places. I highly recommend this tour.
1. Last one on the bus at each stop has to do a dance.
2. What happens on the bus, stays on the bus. (this is likely due to rule #1)
By the way, Abe was our phenomenal driver for our tour bus. He, along with all the fun loving members of our group, made for a really great time visiting the four wineries we did.
If you’re staying in San Fran they’ll pick you up from a central location and deliver you back to your hotel after the tour.
Tours and tastings at two of the wineries with no fee. The other two was a $10 fee for tasting. This must depend on which wineries are part of your tour.
All the bottles of water you can handle. Hydration was stressed because Abe says, “You gonna be drinkin'”
A light breakfast.
A picnic lunch consisting of meats, cheeses, rolls and sandwich fixin’s. There were also dolmas, caprese and pasta salads and chocolate covered strawberries. This was served in the serene setting of one of the wineries picnic areas. You could purchase your own bottle of wine and have it with your lunch.
We booked this in a package through the Wine Train website which, in hindsight, was not the way to go. I read other reviews that said they paid $99 for this tour. If this tour, by itself, is indeed only $99 it would be worth every penny.
