    I’ve done other wine tours before and this one is about the same price, but way less stuff. This is the bare minimum. You have to arrange how to get to the meeting point when other tours will pick you up at your hotel and drop you at your hotel. Then this tour has too many people for it to feel special and they put you on a large coach bus. The wineries were nice except Madonna. No one on our tour cared for that one. It could be replaced. The tour guide, de nilo was rude when I told him I wasn’t feeling well if we could make it cooler on the bus, he said he couldn’t control that. There was no water or snacks provided. Other tours have water and snacks for everyone since you are drinking. You would think they would want to keep you safe. They also did not stop for coffee or a quick breakfast snack. Other tours will start there to be sure you have something in your stomach. Overall, this tour was just meh. Would not recommend.

    Thumbs up to Antonio for being an amazing guide throughout the entire tour. The varieties of wine at Muscardini was the best out of the 3 we visited. You'll get ample time to enjoy the tasting at each winery and stop for lunch at Sonoma Plaza.

    Very fun experience! Tour guide was very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend. If you like sweet wines, maybe this isn’t the tour for you. You get a good variety of semi dry wines (which I don’t mind). We got to taste from 3 to 4 wines at each winery.

    Not really Napa - just Sonoma
    Maggie_G
    , May 2022
    Really, the only nice part about the whole tour was the arranged transportation and B.R. Cohn Winery. The first winery (not B.R. Cohn) literally just looked like a shack on the side of the road. They sat you at picnic tables and in large lawn chairs. There was no pretty view and no vineyard. This winery outsourced all of their grapes - which in Sonoma is literally doing the bare minimum. The next winery was B.R. Cohen and that was the best and only pretty winery. They had a beautiful view and outdoor seating area that was also partially shaded. It was lovely. The stop for lunch was in such a cute little town. The last winery (Madonna Estates) was kinda pretty but also had no vineyard. The sommelier for the winery had us all crammed in this small room tasting wine and then we had to talk about it as a group and then we had to wait in line for our wine to be poured. We only had the last 15 minutes for free time and shopping. I would much rather rent a car and go see all the gorgeous wineries that NAPA and Sonoma have to offer. All of the wineries were basically in Sonoma. Madonna Estates is "technically" in the super lower part of Napa but Sonoma is literally right across the street. Our tour guide also acted like he was high for most of the time and didn't give accurate information about Napa & Sonoma. He also joked about drinking and driving?! All in all, save your money and rent a car and pick out a few beautiful wineries on your own.

    Dear Maggie_G I really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback with us. In our Napa & Sonoma Wine tour, we want our passengers to visit wineries that offer different characteristics so they can be part of all the wine processes. Some wineries stand out for carrying out tastings surrounded by gorgeous landscapes, others show the production processes, and others explain winemaking techniques while always enjoying exquisite tastings. It is always a fun day for relaxing and tasting as much as you want without being responsible for driving back. Hope to welcome you back again soon. Ignacio Gray Line San Francisco
