Amazing tour, we had great service and lots of fun. The bus was really spacious and the people friendly. Above all was the not-to-miss delicious wine. The guide was really helpful. This was the best time I had on this tour, though this was not my first tour with them. Our guide was knowledgeable and the wine tasting was simply delectable. A real value received for that you pay. In fact, we took lot of pictures as our guide helped us in doing so and he also had a good sense of humor that made the entire tour memorable and light.

This was the first time I and my girlfriend decided not to drive, as we usually preferred and enjoyed doing so. This was mainly because she had hurt her hand, so we opted to join this tour. I must say we enjoyed every bit of this tour. It was perfect, no regrets and our tour guide was a Chinese guy, but spoke English very well. I did not know these wineries tasted so authentic. I certainly recommend going on this tour to Napa as they also cover a lot of places in San Francisco. The accommodation offered was equally good.

My wife had been bragging about those wineries in Napa Valley a lot lately, therefore, I planned on taking this bus tour because it had so many wonderful places and it specially include the Napa Valley Tour. I booked two tickets on the online bus tour platform, and believe me it was much easier to just book the tickets online. However, the journey went pretty well, and we enjoyed throughout the tour, and that Courtyard Marriott airport hotel was such a decent hotel in which stayed all the 3 nights. It was great bus with luxury services!

This tour surpassed the expectations of everyone. Our driver and the guide were amazing. The bus was comfortable and good looking. The tour group also was good with two families, the breakfast and lunch was superb. I enjoyed the wine tasting at Napa Valley and the only disappointing thing was my boyfriend took too much of wine that he could not control himself and I had to take a lot of care on that day that I was not getting involved much. The guide helped me through, and so next time I wish to go on this tour again, I recommend.

We just reached from Australia, and booked this tour so we don’t waste our time in the country and just head on to our tour in USA. The bus tour, according to our experience wasn’t an extraordinary but it was fine family-friendly. We enjoyed the time in San Francisco, and the Bay cruise there helped us get around the town in a better way. I just didn’t enjoy the campus tour in the morning since there nothing much to do and see, all the students and people passing by. Despite that, our tour experience was great with great hotel stays. We would love to take another bus tour on our next vacations.

This could be said one of the best tours of my life, but for the bus seats were lacking a bit of cleanliness. We had to point out and then they cleaned the next day. Otherwise, the driver was great and ensured we had loads of fun. The trip began and the bus did not miss any important stop. The wine tasting was good and in fact, they gave us all attention and we felt homely. The wine tasted excellent and the scenic views were superb. Overall an experience that can be considered really well and I recommend this tour operator.
