It was a great experience.
The whole experience was more than I would have expected. Mitch your guide for our NAPA/Sonoma day trip was very knowledgeable and made our day very enjoyable. Our trip to Alcatraz was amazing and the ease of picking up our tickets and getting to Alcatraz made it that much enjoyable.
I would definitely recommend this Tour to all my friends. Thank you for making this a memorable experience
Wonderful tour with Marie as our guide. She was full of knowledge and able to answer all our questions. Very fun and entertaining tour!
Both tours were great. Special mention for Chris - tour guide on the Napa Valley and Sonama tour. What a nice young man and so informative and intelligent. He really made the tour a great experience - nothing was too much trouble. He obviously enjoys his job. Even great CD tape!!
I loved both tours. Alcatraz was informative and interesting. Wine tour was great, we had very nice weather. Our tour guide was young but friendly. She picked us up on time and van was fairly new and comfortable. Lunch was also great, roast beef sandwich with an apple. The only thing i would suggest is water, or something else to drink with it.
Wineries were great choice. I am not too much into wines but my husband had a blast. Our kids were bored but they are teenagers so its expected. My favorite winery was Jacuzzi, beautiful property and I also liked olive oil tasting. All in all, I had great time and I took tons of pictures. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
The best part of our trip . Loved Napa and Sonoma. Alcatraz was awesome. Great tour guides.
The trip was good.
The Alcatraz tour was great...and glad we booked early as the day we were there tickets were sold out with next available being two weeks away. The reason we chose the Vine to Wine tour was not only you get to go both to Sonoma and Napa, but also the inclusion of the stop on the way back to see the Golden Gate from the hills above. However, traffic was heavy on the way back due to leaving late so we never got to stop and see the bridge----this tour was a bit more expensive, but thought it was worth it because the others did not include this stop, and then we didn't get it anyway. So that was disappointing. Also expected the bus to be two seats on each side down the aisle. But it was a smaller van type bus, and my wife and I were the last on the pick up, so we didn't get to sit together....as was the same for another couple since they were bench seats for three. The first winery was nice and people very friendly. Tasting was complementary. Second one was the tour of the grounds and a tasting. Complementary, but a little heavy on trying to sell you bottles and light on the amount served. Sonoma square was a nice little area. Tasting very limited, and cheese and chocolate tasting not what it was hyped up to be. The last two stops were in Napa, nothing complementary offered. First was a dud, and the second nice but pricey---but great views. Driver said we could stop at specific wineries if we wanted, and several were mentioned, but we did not go to even one those. so not sure why he asked So, pluses were that it was a smaller group, the driver friendly, and saw both Sonoma and Napa. Minus was not getting to see all we paid to see, not being able to sit with spouse, and maybe better choices for the Napa wineries. tour description should be better about what you should expect to pay for, and what is complementary---and there were only two wineries in the afternoon as opposed to 3-5 stop at Golden Gate in the description
