Description

from Ultimate Wine Tasting Tour to Napa & Sonoma Valley
A Wine Lover's Paradise - Enjoy Napa Valley in One Day!

All Wine Tasting Fees INCLUDED in the tour price!

Unwind and soak up the stunning scenery as we journey north into Napa Valley, the most prized wine region of Northern California. During your venture, enjoy wine tasting and exclusive estate tours of three of our favored wineries: Madonna Estate, Robert Mondavi, and Andretti.

Since 1922, the Bartolucci Family has consistently created a perfect marriage of grapes and wine at Madonna Estate. Located in the world-renowned Carneros region, an area known for its fertile lands and cool climate, the Bartolucci family has found success with their organically grown grapes and Estate Bottled wines. In addition to practicing natural farming methods, they also combine traditional and modern winemaking techniques.

As the third-oldest winemaking family in the Napa Valley, it is important to them that they continue the commitment to farm naturally and preserve the winemaking traditions of past generations.

When Robert Mondavi founded his namesake winery in 1966, his vision was to create Napa Valley wines that would stand in the company of the world's finest. For more than four decades, Robert Mondavi Winery has led California's wine industry—and much of the world—with innovations in winemaking and winegrowing.

During a lunch break, we'll make a stop at V. Marketplace in Yountville, where you will enjoy leisure time to explore. The destination affords a wonderful variety of eclectic dining options and one-of-a-kind boutique shops and local art galleries.

Nestled alongside a quiet country lane in the heart of the legendary Napa Valley, Andretti Winery exudes old-world charm as it whisks wine lovers back in time to a slower pace of life. Modeled after a rambling Italian village, the winery conjures up the boyhood home of its namesake, Mario Andretti, the finest race car driver of all time.

At each winery, you will spend approximately 1-hour for tour and tasting. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a scenic drive over the Golden Gate Bridge on your way back into San Francisco.

The Wine Country Tour is approximately 9 hours and is available daily at 9:00 am. The price of the tour includes the wine tasting and touring fees at each winery. Wineries subject to change on holidays or due to special events.

Lunchtime is allotted between wineries. (Winery schedule subject to change pending private events at wineries). Lunch cost not included.

This was a great tour and I highly recommend it. The Driver expertly navigated narrow winding roads up and down over the mountain, gave detailed and intricate facts in his presentation.

"Muir Woods and Golden Gate Bridge"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed December 15, 2019
First off Muir Woods is gorgeous, go and see it, just don’t do it on this bus tour. The “tour” itself is pretty much a Coach bus with a driver who makes some comments that he believes are funny but somewhat inappropriate. Discussing the girls on the street in yoga pants is a start. He also drones on and on, no silence on the bus making terrible jokes that “that is my house come by but we just waxed the floors” or “that’s my boat” etc. there was little to learn on the tour and the driving was horrendous. I do not usually get car sick but the side to side of the bus and break and go (even when he was only one on the road) made me unable to look out the window and enjoy the trip. I am also pretty sure that he would have left me at the Golden Gate Bridge had my friends not hoped on the bus earlier. Based on the timer I set we had 10 min I walked on bus with 1:42 left after catching it pulling away. (His excuse was he was going to “circle the lot for me”). You do not get off the bus in Salsalito and it’s almost pointless part of the trip, unless you pay more to get off and take ferry back. Go see the bridge and Muir Woods just don’t do it on this tour

"Left at Muir woods."

Reviewed November 04, 2019
These people are just crooks, they just wasn't wyour money. Myself and my friend bought a trip to Muir woods, which cost 81 dollars each. We did not hear the time we were due to be back at the coach(however I doubt that the coach driver mentioned it enough to make an emphysis on it),so we never got to the coach on time and they simply left us there and did not make any arrangement to have up collected in anyway... I understand they have tight schedules to follow, however they should have made arrangements to get us back. Luckily the park rangers assisted us and allowed us to use their phone. We contacted the several taxi companies and there was only a taxi available to collect us but not for an hour and a half... When we asked for our money back, we were told that the driver waited for us for 10 minutes and that they could see it on the GPS tracker. However the Driver never reported passangers being missing from the trip, when we arrived at the office to make a complaint, the staff weren't even aware that we had been left behind. The outrage for me, is that we could have fallen anywhere in the park, seriously injured ourselves and no one would have gone look for us, and that is disgusting. How does a company like this run? They do not care about the people they take on the trips, Muir woods is in the middle of no where, no easy to get back from without transport. And they felt that they were entitled to keep the 160 dollars they took from my fiend and I to be left in the woods, plus we had to pay 70 dollars for a taxi back into town. It ended up being a very expensive day. Well many thanks for that tower tours.

"Muir wood with George "

Reviewed October 26, 2019
We booked on the 4 hour trip to the Muir Wood trees. Defiantly worth the money spent! George the tour guide was really entertaining and also talked about the city of San Fransisco as we drove through as well as the history of the park. The park itself is very well kept with paths and walkways and is easily accessible for wheel chair and pushchair users. The trees are amazing to see .... we just wished we had more time to walk some more of the trails! There’s a little coffee shop for refreshments and restrooms on site. Great experience ... will book again next time we go!
