Our small group Napa Wine Tour was nothing short of amazing! Luis was such a great tour guide and he even remembered everyone’s names on our bus and made it so personable. He even organized all of our wines, he is so thoughtful! And the wineries he took us to were great and all such different experiences! Madrigal had such great wine and Jackson was a fantastic host. AuburnJames had such a great atmosphere and Caitlyn was hilarious! And Razi was a great way to end the day and how cool that the owner, Fred Razi, did our tastings! Overall, this was such a fantastic experience. Thank you Luis!!!

We had an A+ experience!! Our tour guide Romin was very knowledgeable of the areas we drove through and was also very funny, we were laughing throughout the entire trip/day! Muir Woods were magical and we learns a lot about its history from our guide. The 3 winery’s we went to were all very serviceable and the hosts were kind and hospitable. The views across wine country were also breathtaking! And our tour guide ended the night by taking us to a peak where we could take beautiful pictures with the Golden Gate Bridge behind us! All in all a great day!!
