"EXTRA FUN & A TOURGUIDE THAT MADE US LOL"

Ok - to my shame.... I can’t remember our funny tour guides name from a Napa Wine Tasting Tour this week..... it may of been Greg. He told us he had been doing tours for this company for x2 years approx. He was the perfect tour guide and had us lolling the entire trip. Pic attached. It was a long boozy day and he made it extra special - with a YMCA DANCE among other routines. Pics attached. The first stop if the day was at MUIR WOODS - $15 each to enter which we were not expecting - so glad we had $ with us. A beautiful woodland area where they filmed Star Wars. We were there at 09:30 so it wasn’t busy but I imagine if you go later in the day it would be. The red wood trees were stunning - as you would expect at 200 feet tall. We meant a lot there. You get about x1 hour here so make the most of it. The toilets were disgusting - as we have found at other national park sites. There is a small gift shop and a cafe too. The only x2 negatives on the trip were the gourmet add on at the restaurant we stopped at in Sanoma & the tour bus was very - VERY bouncy. You have to select the food you want when you book your trip - in our case x2 months prior - which is always an odd thing to do. - The food wasn’t great. Salad - few mixed leaves, a watery beany veg soup that we left. The ravioli sauce was watery and only having an hour at the stop we had to rush x3 courses. - Sure there was wine with each course but if we were to do it again we would of grabbed some American food in one of the other Sanoma eateries. The x2 women next to us from our tour left 90% of their wine and most of their food too. We took the tour guides advice and had ice cream at the family run SWEET SCOOPS next door - which gave free samples & then HUGE portions of delicious sweet ice cream. I had rocky road and salted caramel. Service was great (separate review). It was a pretty hot day too so take plenty of sun screen. Take some bottled water too. You stop off at x3 very different vineyards. The first - a huge site run by nice guys with plenty of knowledge. The 2nd was our fave FAMILY MAYO - small set up but fab host and a great vibe - very clean toilets. Told us about the wild fires giving their 2017 barrels a smokey flavour...... as you may expect. A final stop off at an industrial vineyard with a stunning view and balcony / porch. Found out why the end of the vine rows have roses planted etc. All in all - we would recommend. Congrats

The bus was comfy. The driver cum guide was interesting but the wineyard that were visited was average. It would be better if we visited popular and traditional wineyard
