Description:

Wine Country Tour Shuttle, with its Super High 94% TripAdvisor Rating Score...

Wine Country Tour Shuttle, with its Super High 94% TripAdvisor Rating Score operates from San Francisco to either Napa or Sonoma. We encourage wine lovers to go on both our Wine Country Tours because the different wine regions are so uniquely different. Our Napa Experience Tour visits 4 wineries and has a picnic lunch and a 50-minute relaxing ferry cruise included. See the reviews below to see how well the picnic lunch and the ferry cruise is so well received. The Sonoma Experience Tour (local favorite tour) is new for us and has great reviews below because we picked 2 fantastic wineries, plus we put together a walking map of Sonoma square where guests can get one free pour at each location. Wine Country Tour Shuttle received the 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award.

We celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary in San Francisco and we're excited to incorporate a Napa day trip. The agenda was packed, so we knew we were signing up for a *tour* and not a leisurely day at the wineries. We visited 4 wineries (Mondavi, Andretti, Franciscan, and BV), all were beautiful and staffed with friendly and knowledgeable guides. We... More

We really enjoyed our trip to Napa. Our guide was Ken and he was fantastic!! I enjoyed his brief explainations of interesting facts and information about San Francisco, Napa and the different wineries. We ( my daughter and I) found that he was able to explain the process of making wine better than a couple of the winery representatives. The... More

We met our bus at the ferry building, very convenient to our hotel, the Hyatt Embarcadero. Our driver/guide was Phil, pleasant voice and knowledgeable about wines and the Napa/Sonoma Valleys. We visited 4 wineries (a little rushed.) Robert Mondavi gave us a tour with a good lecture. Andretti winery also provided an informative lecture (very beautiful Italian villa setting.) We... More

My husband and I went on this tour recently while visiting from the UK. It was our first visit to Napa and it was a fabulous day out. Our driver Ken was great from start to finish. He knew everything about the area and about wine and the vineyards we visited. Everything was timed perfectly (except the delivery van that... More

This is a well organized and enjoyable day tour from San Francisco. We visited 4 wineries so the time frame was well planned and executed. The driver "Ken" gave an excellent commentary of the city area and then imparted his extensive wine knowledge. He is very good and this is enjoyable and educational. Unfortunately he had some technical problems with... More

This was our first experience in Napa Valley and it was a spectacular day! Our driver was Ken, but he was so much more than just the driver. He was also our very knowledgable tour guide!

We visited San Francisco from the UK in June 2016. In order to ensure that we could get on the trip we booked a base wine tour for four on-line. Two days before we were due to leave the UK, I received an email to advise that this tour was not running and offering an alternative at no extra cost.... More

Amazing tour guide!! Jonathan was great! Very informative and patient with too many wine intoxicated folk. We loved the tour. Only suggestion: Leave a way/means to tip the driver besides cash. We felt awful we could not TIP as we don't carry cash while traveling!!
