Our tour guide/driver was Kimmy and she was awesome! Energetic, funny, and helpful, especially with taking pictures. She actually gave us a lot more information than the people at the wineries. One problem: the air conditioning on the bus didn't work well, so we were all sweating on the ride back to SF. The winery in Napa was ehh, but the 2 in Sonoma were good. Would've liked to spend an extra 15 minutes in Muir woods though.

We went on a full day tour of Muir Woods, Napa Valley, and Sonoma with our excellent tour guide Paul, who made the trip unforgettable! The views were stunning, the wine was tasty, and Paul was incredibly informed about the entire area including the local plant life, history, and wine growing/making. Two of our group got engaged at Muir Woods and Paul went out of his way to make it a special occasion even purchasing sparkling wine and glasses to drink and take home. We would 10/10 recommend Paul and this tour!

We had a beautiful time in Napa Valley! Enjoyed wines from the Castilla del Amorosa, Madrigal and Kieu Hoang winery. Randall was a great tour guide with great knowledge on the area and wines. Jackson was our host at Madrigal whose enthusiasm and knowledge added to the wonderful experience- and the breathtaking view from the patio was the cherry on top! Such a great day!
