Dean was a treat! Prompt, friendly and very accommodating . Out tour began at 9:00 am, Dean stopped in the Marina District to let us pick up coffee, made a stop for a champagne toast at the SF Bay Bridge, took us to a recommendation winery in Sonoma and then on to the wineries we had made reservations at in Napa. We ran a little late for our reservation at Rombauer no fault of Dean and did not have time to pick up a picnic as we had planned. Dean made a great recommendation, went in to town to pick up a lunch we ordered and had it waiting for us to enjoy in the garden at Rombauer. He even took us back to our hotel via Lombard street. It was a great day for the 4 our us. I would definitely recommend this tour.....ask for Dean !

Our group of six had the most amazing wine tour day! Our driver, Dean, was absolutely wonderful. He was friendly and very knowledgeable. It was a perfect day from the time he picked us up until the time he dropped us off. We explained what we were hoping to experience that day, took the tour company recommendations, made a few modifications as we went along and all of us will be happy to recommend this tour to any friends, family or anyone else visiting the area.

We really enjoyed the tour with driver James, a genuinely nice guy who also is a knowledgeable and safe driver. Vadim of Town Limo provided a list of recommended wineries and dining that was very helpful for advance planning, and also made calls to coordinate pick-up near our cruise ship. The private tour was a real treat after taking several cruise ship bus excursions.

We took a girls trip to Sonoma and Napa and LOVED booking through Viator. They were helpful if we had any questions! Looking forward to booking through them again!

We had a great time, visiting from Chicago. Our driver was extremely helpful in taking us to places that matched our interests, This is the only way to see wine country and we will definitely do this again next time.

Our driver Dean was very informative and accommodating. We started with a walk through Muir Woods. Jacuzzi Winery and Lagunitas Brewery were enjoyable. The trip was just as advertised.

We had a wonderful day touring vinyards and wineries throughout the Napa Valley. We visited 6 or 7 and had a wonderful lunch at Auberge du Soleil in Napa. Our driver/guide was a very pleasant young man who was an excellent driver and guide. It is difficult to do both Napa and Sonoma on the same day so best to focus on one or the other. Our driver made several excellent suggestions.

The price of the tour does not include the cost of the wine tastings at each winery/vintyard. Also, restaurants like Auberge du Soleil and some wineries require separate reservations. You must make those IN ADDITION TO the reservation for this tour.

For our weekend stay in San Francisco we booked a one-day trip out to wine country and couldn't be happier about how things turned out with Cardinal. We were initially overwhelmed with the number of choices - Napa vs Sonoma, picking locations, etc. - and through a couple of phone calls and emails Vadim guided us through selecting a few places that matched our interests, while encouraging us to keep some flexibility in the day. The approach was just right...enough planning that we had a productive day, but not so much that we felt rushed on a schedule. With over an hour each way from our hotel in San Francisco to the vineyards, Vadim had plenty of time to fill us in on the local happenings and he didn't disappoint. He even took a quick detour into Sausolito on the way out of town so we could see the start line for the 12K Across the Bay race that we ran the next day. Just a great guy to spend the day with, and made our first visit to wine country an invitation to return.

This tour is excellent! We arranged our own itinerary, but they are happy to do it for you. Since we are quite familiar with Napa, we knew specifically where we wanted to visit. However, they have relationships with many wineries and are more than happy to help coordinate your own personalized itinerary. We were picked up @ our hotel in San Francisco about 9:45 AM. We had brunch at Auberge du Soleil, followed by tastings at Quintessa and Caymus. We were back at our hotel by dinner time. All in all, it was a fabulous day!

This was an awesome experience! The driver was knowledgeable and friendly. I think we learned more about wine country from the driver than we did the vineyard tour! His recommendations were spot on as well. We chose 3 vineyards and they chose the final two. All good picks! Recommend doing the Benziger tour 25/person. Really great and you get a tasting at Imagery sister winery for free, and it is only 7 minutes away! Tastings are an additional cost, so make sure you prepare for that. Definitely worth the cost, as it is far cheaper than risking a DUI in California haha.

If ever you wanted to feel like royalty take this tour! This tour is amazing right from the point where you make arrangements with the limousine service to the point you arrive home. My driver John was knowledgeable and professional and offered great tips and suggestions. I was able to visit all the wineries I selected and thé flexibility to deviate from a standardized list of vineyards makes this customized trip very special. I recommend this tour very highly .....five stars just doesn't do the trick it should be more!

Very happy that we booked this tour for our Napa trip! Our driver, Peter, was excellent. Not only was he very knowledgeable about Napa, but he had excellent suggestions that were not on our list! Started our tour with a champagne toast after driving over the bridge! Recommended to all our friends.

Great time! Mason showed up on time and was friendly and easy to work with. He had a pre planned day but made several adjustments to focus on the wine we wanted to taste. Suggested great lunch spot where we had a spontaneous picnic I've been on several of these tours but I can honestly say this one was the best.

We had a great driver and a great day. The driver brought champagne which we didn't need but was very nice! I very much enjoyed this tour. The only concern I had was the actual company that handles the transportation called me and wanted my credit card information for a security deposit. Although this wasn't the only place I used my card in the bay area, a week after my trip several fraud charges hit my credit card account from the bay area. I can't blame them but giving my card info over the phone made me uncomfortable.

Had a problem with being charged after the tour, but, one quick phone call fixed that. Don't rely on there being water. We made that mistake. Make sure that you have planned out your itinerary and are somewhat familiar with the distance between each stop. The driver isn't necessarily familiar with the area.

I know a bottle of wine is included - my recommendation is to ask for it in the beginning. We asked about it in the middle of the tour. The driver said it was in the trunk and was warm. However, upon drop off, we didn't think to ask for it I also don't think we should have had to!

Overall, even though there are some kinks that need to be worked out, it is definitely worth the price. Having a driver allowed us all to have fun and enjoy the day.

Basically just car transportation and no bottle of wine provided. Driver was good and car fine.
