Our driver was wonderful - he was so obliging - could not have done more to keep us happy
I researched the outlet mall and planned my visit so I could maximise the time available there
We were really looking forward to the winery visit but we were disappointed.
It was pretty, but was a cross between a restaurant and a shop
Rather than go to the tasting bench and try the available wines and talk about them with educated winery employees and often the wine maker, you are seated at a table, you order your flight minimum cost of 30 per person tip for 4 wines. It is bought to you by a server who gives a brief description and then goes.
Great trip with driver expedition leader Phil Siegel.
Excellent shopping tour, the outlets are huge and very cheap, we had about 4 hours shopping, but could have done with more time. The winery we stopped at in Sonoma was really beautiful, a lovely outlook over the vineyards. Our driver Anthony was fantastic, even driving around and taking our shopping bags from us to put in the bus, so we didn't have to carry them around. Would do it again.
So much fun! Loved the mall and winery! Great tour guide - Joseph. This was my second trip with the same tour company.
EXCELLENT for the Shopping, but I was not impress with the winery. Enjoy the stores and we had enough time do all we wanted, even though it was raining off and on. Will do this tour agian.
It was really an small group , the driver was very nice and everything was on time.
Perfect! I took my girlfriends on this tour for my birthday and we had a blast. 4 hours of shopping, followed by sipping champagne at a French chateau among Napa's rolling hills. The final stop at a Golden Gate Bridge vista was the cherry on top.
The trip to the Outlet Shopping and the Winery was fun and interesting. The plus point was it was only a small group.The arrival and departure from our destinations were timely. The driver, Frank was friendly and provided an educated commentary. Perhaps we should have visited more than one winery when there are hundreds of wineries in the Napa Valley
Phil our guide organised that we met up every 2 hours to see if we wonted to spend more time shopping or not . Other all I think the 3 of us spent just over 3 hours shopping then we went wine tasting at Aresans vineyards. Enjoyable tour , informative guide. I might do the small group vineyards tour
The outing was amazing. The shopping was excellent. Our driver Joe was so informative and very friendly. He made sure that we enjoyed ourselves. The tour was so educational. Now, the vineyard left much to be desired. They were not friendly and did not educate on the different wines. Their main objective was to push their membership on you. How every disappointing. Other than the winery, the tour was great. Joe even stopped so we could visit with a local fruit vendor and we were able to buy some very delicious cherries. Thank you, Joe, for an incredible experience! (would have give the tour a 5+ if wasn't for the winery!)
