Loved this tour! Our driver, Wolfgang, was entertaining, and gave some really good insight into the area and what was going on around us on the trip. The bus was comfortable and the views were just delightful, as was the wine itself. Especially like the tour given at the Madonna Estate. This tour is really worth while.
The tour was great and our driver/guide was excellent and very personable.
It was and excellent tour. 3 wineries were very good. I recommend that you bring your lunch because the restaurants at Yountville are expensive
the wine tour was well done and very informative! i don't know if gordie, (our tour guide/bus driver) was a bus driver disguised as a wine expert, or a wine expert disguised as a bus driver! he exelled at both! we arrived back to the city to find the city grid locked in every direction due to the america's cup going on s.f. bay! gordie managed to thread that huge motor coach through the city in places i don't think i could have got my car! he got everyone to their proper hotels quickly and safely, all the while giving us a running commentary on the city of s.f. my wife lisa and i were very impressed and would recommend this tour to any one!!!
Absolutely loved Gordy our driver!! He was very knowledgable, funny, and nice!! Would highly recommend this tour and if I'm in the area again I would do it again!!
very nice scenery and locations. would like to have seen additional wineries, tour guides very good
The wine was so tasty, the driver was friendly, it was a great tour!

I was a wonderful trip ---I didn't really care for Yourtville not much to see and expensive dining. But the wine tours were great and so was our driver....would book with you again.
This was a great tour. We saw three very different vineyards which varied in size. The driver was full of anecdotes and local knowledge. We stopped at a lovely little place for lunch. Would definitely recommend, only minor point is that I wish I hadn't left it to the last place to buy wine!
(1) For some reason I "missed" my reservation on July 24th, 2013, Viator was so nice to offer me another tour on Aug 24th 2013 for free.
(2) My friend and I really enjoyed the tour. The length of the tour was just right. People were knowledgeable and friendly. The views out there were beautiful.
I and my wife took this trip with Viator and we loved it. Gordy, the driver (Hope I have his name right) was fantastic. Very knowledgable and helpful. We learnt a lot from him on this trip. The wineries visited on this trip were very good and offered a great experience with the exception of one. "Nicholson Ranch Winery".
I think one of the owners who gave the tour of this winery, Deepak Gulrajani was extremely rude, with a very arrogant attitude. My wife and I were so offended with his behaviour that we did not even sample his wine, even though we had already paid for it. We felt that Deepak singled us out in the group and for this atrocious behavior. My guess is that we are Asian Indians and he has some dislike for people with Indian origin. I think he forgot to look in the mirror in the morning..Cause he is an Asian Indian as well. What hypocrisy! He might not have meant it but in our minds we felt were subjected to racism. I hope he is a better man for his sake..
The tour was very well planned. The bus was very comfortable with a very knowledgeable driver who also acted as the tour guide. He was a friendly and jolly person. The wineries were well chosen and the tasting sessions were very professionally conducted. A tour worth cherishing.
