We had SUCH a fun time on this tour - maybe too much fun because I lost my wallet. Thankfully, the tour's bus driver checked all the wineries for me and found and returned my wallet. The service was exceptional and we loved our tour guide. Thanks for an amazing day!

We had a great time at Roche! Very funny hostesses & very generous in the proportion of wine given. We also liked the time spent for lunch. We didn’t get much time at the second one at all. I know we had a time schedule but it was tight. Wish we had more time & wine! PS don’t expect any cheese! It’s illegal!

Marco was a great tour guide! This also doubled as mini city tour as he told us little tidbits and facts while we were driving around to pick up other passengers. The first winery we went to was Roche which was in Sonoma and was beautiful! second and third were in Napa (Madonna estate and kieu hoang) the first 2 places were generous with pours and we got about 5-6 tastings but the last one wasn’t as much and wasn’t as good (they were relatively new I guess). Thankfully Marco agreed to call it a day and we left about 30 min early and got back to the city before 6! It was nice to not have to do any of the planning, definitely set aside an entire day for this though and stay hydrated! Our group was fun and everyone was good about keeping their masks on around each other. Thank you for a great day and tour!
