I was in San Fran for work for the week and my mom came to visit for the latter part of my trip. She was celebrating her birthday and I decided to gift this tour to her. Everything about it was flawless to the pick up a block away from our hotel till our drop off. The driver was excellent and extremely knowledgeable about the Sonoma/Napa area. You would really tell that he loved his job... like really loved it! I think his name was Willie ... he was an older black man We visited three wineries Sutter Home, Andretti, cant remember third all were different and beautiful. We had ample time to shop and sample at each winery. We made a stop for lunch in the cutest little town. Food was reasonably priced at the Italian restaurant that we ate at. The bus was nice, clean, and comfortable.
I would recommend this trip to anyone looking for a day trip to the wine region!
This tour was very well organized and coordinated. The shuttle picked us up at our hotel and took us to the meeting point by the bay. Once we boarded the tour bus Silvio, our tour guide provided us with very good information of areas we toured. It was a long day, therefore, I recommend wearing comfortable shoes as you get on and off the bus to visit the different wineries. There is opportunity for wine tasting, a little shopping and taking pictures. We really enjoyed this trip! Highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Napa and Sonoma for the first time!

We enjoyed the ride in the air conditioned bus in the 90 heat. The driver was great, very informative. This was a great overview of both Napa and Sonoma.
All the wineries were great! Madonna was the most tasty, but Sutter had really amazing wines. Our driver/tour guide was outstanding!

This tour of Napa Valley and Sonoma was wonderful! Our tour driver Willie was so delightful and very knowledgeable about the whole area. The three vineyards that we visited were very welcoming and provided much information about wine making and wine tasting the proper way. I learned a lot about wines and definitely look forward to visiting the area again in the future. I highly recommend Tower Tours for their professionalism and concern that the tour be enjoyed by all.
Our tour guide Patrick was fantastic. Super informative, and hilarious. They pick you up from the hotel and drop you off. It was a perfect day if you enjoy wine.
This was a wonderful tour and the guide was very knowledgeable about wine grapes and all of the wineries we visited.
Each winery was different. Our driver was very knowledgeable. Having a little bit more time to walk around during our lunch break would have been nice. Definitely a great tour if you want to see both Napa and Sonoma in one day.
This was such an awesome trip! I actually believe that our driver Patrick contributed to making this tour so pleasant and unforgetable.
Absolutely fantastic - Sylvio sorry if I have spelt this wrong was terrific had us in stiches. Knew an awful lot about the region and about wine in general and made the tour very enjoyable.. The Aussie Girls
We had a great time on our tour, starting with a hotel pickup - so convenient! The driver was exceptional - driving was smooth and he could talk about the sites and share his perspective about the sites along the way. The 3 Wineries that were selected for us gave a good cross section small organic, through to large industrial size production. Nice lunchtime destination too.
Our Bus Driver/Tour Guide Silvio was wonderful! Absolutely a great experience.
what can we say about our driver Patrick!! He was great and very informative. It was a beautiful trip and the wineries were so beautiful.
Trip was fantastic. The guide, George, was very knowledgeable and had many stories and information about San Francisco and wine tasting in general. The three wineries were great..one small organic producer, one medium sized family operation and one large winery. The presenters at all of them were very good and not pushing you to buy their wine. We had about five tastings at each one. The lunch stop at Sonoma was interesting. We had enough time to eat, lots of restaurants available as well as time to wander around the town square. Definitely a tour to take!
Great tour and great guide Silvio! He was very knowledgeable of the valleys and the wines!
We did three wine tasting: I personally like the first one in Napa Valley more. There was a more familiar atmosphere and the people looked very happy to show us their product.
I did not like the second winery for both, the wine and the tasting that was too fast. Also, the place looked more like a shop!
The last winery was very nice, probably the best, but the tasting was a little too fast.
I definitely recommend this trip to others: it is probably the best was to enjoy the valley and the wine since you don't have to drive!
My advice: it is better to include the tip in the online payment because sometimes people do not have enough cash to leave the tip and it is a pity for the guide that deserves it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Silvio was our tour guide and kept us entertained. They were about 10 mins late picking us up from our hotel, but we called Tower Tours and they told us how far away our shuttle was. Silvio explained the scenery and the history of the 2 wine regions. Madonna Estates was my favorite and then we went to Sutter Homes. Both were in Napa Valley. Silvio stopped at the Napa Valley sign and allowed us to get out and take pictures. We ate lunch in historic Sonoma and Silvio drove around explaining the different restaurants around. Our final destination was Sebastiani. I didn't enjoy their wine, but they had the most beautiful winery of the 3. We had enough time to sample wine, tour, shop, and take pics at each destination. Everyone should go on this tour.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the city and provided a great historical lesson! The wineries were good. This was my first time on such a trip and I was really impressed with the hosts at each of the wineries. Definitely recommend this trip to others!
We enjoyed this tour very much and learned a lot about the wine making process. Our driver Silvio was very interesting and knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend this tour!
Overall, the trip was great. The Madonna Vineyard was nice,quant and personal. The Glen Ellen had too many people, they also were very stingy with their wine sampling. The last tour was fun even though the guy who led it was a bit of a racist. The tour guide and driver was great. Lunch was extremely rushed. Overall all I would do it again.
Very enjoyable day. Plenty of wine tastings.
I would have liked a little more education about how they process the grapes and how they end up with the wine. I didn't get that from any of the 3 vineyards we went to.
