Could not have asked for a better day. My wife and I decided to sign up for a tour so we could see some of the great spots in Napa and not have to worry about drinking and driving. Best decision we made on many levels. Aside from having a carefree day, Flex Wine tours was a great choice. The tasting route was personalized so our palettes would enjoy and grow, while also seeing the best of new and old Napa. The cars are fun and relaxing, and the drivers are informative and flexible. When I come back to Napa, I would not consider any other tour or drivers. Highly recommended.

James was the ultimate guide through wine country including suggestions for where to stay and best places to enjoy for dinner. We toured for two days with James and loved every minute of it. He is a professional with extensive knowledge of the region. We loved the photos he took for us and his follow up and attention to detail is superb! We never would have experienced wine country to this incredible caliber without James and Flex Wine Tours.

I surprised my husband with a trip to Napa for his birthday. Neither of us had ever been to Napa before and I had no idea which wine tour company to use. Thankfully, based on all of the other fabulous reviews, I chose Flex Wine Tours. After asking me a few questions about the types of wine we prefer and our desired wine tasting experience, James put together the perfect itinerary for my husband and me. It was a fabulous day! Our guide was not only very knowledgeable about wine, the region, and the wineries, but also personally knew many of the owners and tasting hosts, which made our experience very special. In short, if you are considering a wine tour, you must choose Flex Wine Tours. It will be a fabulous day that you will want to relive again and again. We do.

My girlfriends and I visited Napa Valley for the first time, and we really wanted a unique experience. James with Flex Wine Tours designed our itinerary based on our requests for great reds, a few sweet whites and unique, off-the-beaten-path wineries. We toured with his wife Diane, and WOW did they both deliver.

We visited some amazing wineries and had intimate tasting experiences in some beautiful settings. The wines were excellent as well. Diane's knowledge of Napa Valley, the history and the wines added to the experience.

I would highly recommend Flex Wine Tours for anyone who is new to Napa Valley wines as was my group. They would be excellent for connoisseurs as well!

We really had a fantastic trip.

On our first visit to Napa Valley we decided to use someone who "knew the ropes". Based on the reviews, we booked Flex Tours for two days, one in Napa and one in Sonoma. Prior to our visit we contacted James to review what we were looking for during our visit. Flex arranged the appointments, planned lunches and gave us reccomendations for dinner and activities for our non-tour days. Our first day was with James touring Napa. We visited 4 wineries and had lunch at Siverado Brewing Co. Each winery was unique combining small boutique properties with larger production facilities. Our second day was in Sonoma with Diane, James' wife. Once again unique properties each with a different "flavor". This time we stopped at a small grocery and got a picnic lunch to enjoy on the grounds of Chateau St. Jean. With this couple you get the full wine country experience. James is the "wine guy" very knowledgable about wine and its production. Diane gives you the Napa "lifestyle". She's knowledgable about area restaurants and the Napa Lifestyle.
At 6'5' I found the Ford Flex both comfortable and easy to get in and out of. It could easily accomodate 5 people in relative comfort. Definitely the way to go in Napa.
