What You Can Expect

Napa Valley Wine Trolley

Open-air Wine Tasting Trolley

You’ll be picked up at Napa’s Oxbow Market in the late morning for a 6-hour tour on the Napa Valley Wine Trolley, an open-air vehicle modeled after a historic 1890s San Francisco cable car. Enjoy the wind in your air as you take in the beautiful sights and smells of Napa wine country. Your friendly, knowledgeable guide will keep you entertained with commentary and stories about Napa’s history and wine culture.

Visit four family-owned Napa Valley wineries for private wine-tasting sessions. Your hosts will explain the different varietals you taste and give you a background on the wineries (wine-tasting fees are not included; fees range between USD$15 and 25).

Around midday, sit down to a lovely picnic at one of your stops, which may be among a vineyard, on a garden terrace or in a wine cellar, depending on the weather. Chat with your fellow travelers over a gourmet lunch provided by Yountville's NapaStyle, owned by celebrity chef Michael Chiarello (sample menu below). Bottled water is included with your meal and wine is available for purchase.

You’ll have plenty of wonderful photo opportunities throughout your tour, and your guide will be happy to take a photo of your group so you can document your memorable day in wine country.

Great trip for first time tasters. Our guide Joe was informative and fun. We had a bunch of young just turning 21 girls on the trolley and he handled them like a pro.

Joe was great! He was entertaining and informative. One of the wineries was great. one was very good. The first winery polished the bar before we arrived and there was still residue on it. The wine was OK. The second winery was the best. The host was great and the tour was as well. The third was ok and the last was good. All of us on the trolley had an enjoyable time.

3 star rating: Worth doing October 2015

The tour was nice. The tour stopped at some nice wineries that I would not have normally stopped. They provided plenty of water to keep us hydrated. We were disappointed that we were in a bus instead of a trolley. That was the entire reason why we booked the tour.

3 star rating: Worth doing April 2015

The tour was not what we expected. We did not go into the vineyards not was the wine process explained to us. Rather disappointing to be constantly be sold wine. I use Viator many times in the UK and it's sad the company they outsource the trips too do not have the sane standard.
