The winery stops were beautiful however the driver didn't give any verbal commentary only written. Great tour though!

disappointing
Debra_T
, Jun 2022
This tour has great potential, but was incredibly disappointing. Our tour guide seemed annoyed, rushed and disheveled from the get go. She had zero enthusiasm and the tour felt more like a field trip with a grouchy teacher than a wine country experience. No history, no gusto, just a glorified UBER ride. Would not recommend.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Debra, I am very disappointed myself and completely sorry for your experience. We really pride ourselves in our tours and drivers. Believe me this is not the normal tour. I will have a word with our driver and see what was up. Maybe there was something going on there. Call me when you are in Napa again and I will personally escort you on a tour myself.

My group and I had so much fun! Lexi and the whole crew went above and beyond- with their stories of the Napa wine country and dad jokes. This tour is good for all occasions, birthday, anniversary, or hey, even a pre-wedding celebration! Whatever group you have, if it’s just you, traveling for two, join in on the fun. Meet new people and make new friends. But let me get to the real review here- hop on aboard the trolley, you are picked up at Oxbow Public Markey, we went a bit early to get some coffee and enjoy some bakery bread at Model Bakery (our favorite). Pick up was at 10 am. The winery stops at 3 locations with an afternoon stop at a winery/lunch 1.) Monticello Vineyards 2.)Ottimo - family style pizza and salads paired with wine tasting/flight and a local marketplace plaza 3.) Napa Cellars - yard and lawn games available The most positive part of this though, was Lexi, our driver, was such a sweetheart! She always had a smile on her face, and checked up on our group and trolley members. With her karaoke sing along playlist - be sure to sing along! Overall, I highly recommend doing this tour. It’s been awhile since everyone had the opportunity to get out and have fun. Don’t be a trolley troll 😊

More than half of the trolley was booked for a pre-wedding party. They were loud, swearing, dancing provocatively, taking shots of liquor in the parking lot before departure and at every stop. They completely took over the entire trip and made everyone uncomfortable. We didn’t get back on after the last stop. We caught an Uber for the ride home.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Michelle, very sorry to hear about your experience. We do not encourage large group parties on our daily tour. Can you call our office and ask for ext 207 so I can discuss the day with you and how we can try and prevent it happening in the future.

Napa Wine Trolley

Very fun day and well worth the money. Each winery we visited was prepared for us with glasses out and places to sit and listen to the presentation. We visited Monticello, Ottimo, and Napa Cellars. Lunch pizza was plentiful and tasty, and in a cool area. Treated very well.

One of the highlights of our girls trip, wonderful experience! Our guide was educational, funny, and nice. We went to two different wineries, both really nice experiences, and stopped for lunch at a cool spot that had a wine tasting option & was in the center of a Yountville bakery building. Lunch was private for our trolley group and included a variety of delicious artisan pizzas, salad, and dessert. We also stopped at the big Napa sign by the train tracks to take some pictures, and the guide took photos of each group next to the trolley before departure. Would definitely book again!

Horrible wine taste Only 2 Viñas The lunch no good The driver too fast Waste money I have been at other wine tasting This one is only pay for it
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Im sorry but it sounds like our tour did not meet your expectations. I don't really understand the details of your note here but if you could contact me directly at the office perhaps I could help further. We go to two wineries and a tasting rooms where we enjoy lunch from Michael Chiarello and his wines. All wineries in Napa Valley charge a tasting fee.

Great ride, awful wineries
Sharon_C

Trolley and driver was great. The wine tasting were awful! None of the 12 passengers bought nothing…that should tell you. Lunch was fantastic. The last wine tasting was terrible, it was a substitute as the scheduled winery cancelled. Not impressed
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Very sorry that you were not happy with the selection of wine tasting stops. While we do switch stops up often, our groups love the stops we make. Perhaps it was a bad day for that last stop. Again very sorry you did not enjoy.
