The description states transportation will be in a limo, limo bus or party bus. Instead we were in a giant coach bus with approximately 50 people. The driver was nice but when we brought wine back on the bus after the second winery we were told in a rude way that we must drink the wine off the bus before it left. We questioned this for multiple reasons; it was supposed to be a “party bus”, other people had brought open bottles on, and earlier he had served us mimosas. We also felt like 4 wineries was a bit rushed. Finally the picnic lunch was not very good and we would have rather had our own time to eat at the second winery that served pizza and had an amazing view
We had a great time. Totally worth the money. The driver was fun and a great Chef too! We really liked the wineries that we toured and enjoyed the bus it was comfortable.
Our drive Abe was awesome, Entertaining and funny! Made our First trip to Napa Valley the best ever! Would ask for him again and will recommend Viator to all my friends!
All the facilities was excellent while tour is going on.Driver cum Guide is very friendly Also we had enjoyed all the Valley's included in this Tour
we did not get what we paid for! have done this tour before with a different company and it was awesome! In your ad you stated things that we didn't even get! would not go with this company again!
This wine tour is AWESOME!! We were able to stop at 4 wineries, the length and the first two stops could’ve been a little longer, they were under an hour. But each winery is very generous with the servings and tastings. Well worth it!! Party bus has a lot of space. Abe was an awesome and patient guide!!
The trip was a perfect time. Lunch out in the vineyard grounds memorable. Driver Abdel could not be any more accomodating
We had a great time with Abe. This tour made our girls trip more amazing!!! The wineries were beautiful and the views breathtaking!!!
We were picked up at Union Square on time by Abe our driver. He's an entertaining and fun driver who engaged the crew of fellow wine tasters mostly from out of town. One thing missing from the "party" bus was the music. Luckily a person from the group connected their bluetooth and started playing music. There was a stop at the Golden Gate Bridge for us to take pictures and play tourist. We stopped at four different wineries. Our favorite was the Jacuzzi Family winery, where Don gave us a lesson on wine tasting etiquette. We wondered over to taste the balsamic and olive oil offerings. After the trip we concluded that we should have visited 3 locations and spend more time at each location. The next places we visited were the Viansa, Madonna Estates, and Kieu Hoang. We had our picnic lunch at the Madonna Estates. Timing was great since we were quite hungry after two winery stops; although the sandwich wasn't the most amazing, it did hit the spot. We were dropped off back in SF. It was a great day trip out of town to take friends.
Excellent tour guide, he was so knowledgeable and so much fun. Got way more than we paid for, guide added extra wine stop to the tour.
Great scenic drive and all four wineries were excellent. Knowledgeable staff at each one. Our tour guide Abe was fantastic and very personable
Good value for the money
