A s we've mentioned, our philosophy is that when you choose to spend your day with us, it is exactly that — your day — and we will do everything we can to make it a special one. Often, our groups bond and spend the day together as a travelling party. Other times, different groups have different preferences for how to spend the day, and our willing drivers are always able to accommodate each and every one of them.

We appreciate the feedback and comments we receive and are committed to providing the best tours of the Napa Valley.

Laurence took such good care of us! We were able to visit 5 wineries at our own pace. He kindly gave us excellent instructions on how to go wine tasting without over-drinking. The tour was very flexible with loads of great information along the way. Perfect way to spend the day and made new friends too! Maybe we bought too much wine...no. That is not possible!

Excellent tour and service. We got to see each region of Napa Valley which is an approximate 40ish minute drive from Napa to Calistoga, excluding the stops. Compared to the other tour shuttles, the price was a great deal at $75/person and it felt personal with was just my party of 4 plus 2 others on the ride. Carol, our wonderful driver, was attentive to us all and gave us a very informative and enjoyable ride throughout Napa Valley. During the day, we stopped by 5 wineries where she chose pretty good wineries for us all and gave us ample time to visit. Each stop ran about 45-60 minutes, including a 90 minute stop at one winery (V. Sattui) for lunch. The best stops were at Sterling, V. Sattui, and the Castello di Amorosa, all of which I'd recommend.

I only rate the shuttle tour 4 stars because vouchers and discounts weren't offered at every stop - I just think it would be nice to have as a part of package for the tour. If possible, it would also be great if the shuttle asked to take special requests for visits in advance.

Another plus - our driver was helpful in giving us plenty of suggestions on places to eat and places to visit during our stay in the area. As a first timer, I say it's a great idea to go with this tour if you're not sure where to visit, not to mention the fact that everyone in your party can relax without having to worry about a designated driver.

This was my first time wine tasting and it was an awesome experience. NWS made it so easy taking us around to a handful of wineries. Our driver Ron was so nice and informative. We went to 6 wineries on a Saturday in June with a group of 9! Four in my party and 5 of another party of girls. We went to Andretti, Black Stallion, Luna, Hagafen, Domaine Chandon and Coppola. We received 2 for 1 deals at almost every winery...score!

Definitely the best deal for an all day wine tasting tour. We had a blast!

Laurence was a wonderful guide. He was knowledgeable and friendly. We had a great day and traveled with people who we can now call friends. Beautiful area and day. I would love to do this again sometime. It was nice to have someone that knows the area and wine take us around. Be sure to listen for tips as you do your tasting.

Laurence was well informed and connected in the region. He answered all of our questions without turning the experience into a day long wine lecture- boring! He secured several personal tastings my wife and I would never have experienced on our own.

I really appreciated the way he listened to our agenda helping us balance our short list of wants with his insider knowledge while taking care to avoid places we previously visited. We had 9 tastings!

Looking at some of these other reviews- if you are looking for a luxurious, white glove experience with a personal wine professor/guide for the day- this may not be the experience for you.

If you are looking for a sober and informed driver who can open some doors for your group at a really reasonable rate- Napa Wine Shuttle should be your go to- we'll be booking with them on our next Napa excursion for sure.

We had a great time with Laurence. We went to seven tastings--seven!! Since it is not high season, our tour originally started with just my fiance and me. Laurence was super flexible and let us decide if we wanted to do three or four wineries before lunch. We did four, of course! After lunch, the company was nice enough to drive a couple who went on a hot air balloon tour to meet up with us. We (the other couple and us) both agreed that the Napa Winery Shuttle is very friendly and accommodating.

Since we are newbies to Napa, we let Laurence take the reins, and we were not disappointed. He took us to Trefethen and told us about how the earthquake had affected the original tasting room. He took us to Silverado and explained the winery owner's background. We also went to Rutherford Ranch winery (good chocolate and wine tasting), Rutherford Grove, Round Pond, Jessup Cellars (good cheese to go with the wine), and Black Stallion Winery. Laurence provided some wine trivia, information about wines and Napa in general. He was awesome!

I think this tour is a great value. Just think about how much it costs to take a cab somewhere. And, of course, you are in Napa, so wine tastings do cost money. Laurence did inform us of a phone app (Winery Finder) that had some coupons, and we used at least one while we were touring. He also advised us that we could share tastings. We did this as I got a bit tipsier, and it made a lot of sense.

In a nutshell, I would highly recommend this tour.

I wanted to drop a line to let you know what a fantastic time we had aboard the shuttle. Norm went above and beyond every step of the way. He took the time to personally get us set up at each of the wineries, and made several detours during the day to point out fantastic views, historic sites, and restaurants he would recommend. He was full of information and good humor – everything you could possibly ask for in a guide. We had the misfortune of taking a tour with a different company the following day – and all we can say is Norm has no competition in the Napa Valley. Keep up the great work.

We wanted to thank you so much for a wonderful tour of Napa Valley. This was by far the best part of our honeymoon, and we will recommend you to everybody we know visiting your area.

We were with a group of 8 others. The driver did an incredible job of taking care of all of us during the day. He was so informative, telling us things about the area and about each of the wineries that we never would have known otherwise. At the end of the day, he even made restaurant reservations for six of us for that evening. The tour was definitely the highlight of our honeymoon. Thank you so much.

After spending 3 weeks out there, my husband and I are convinced that your tour is the greatest bargain in all of California. Thank you for an extraordinary day, and for introducing us to many wonderful wineries. Andretti was our favorite. What a great suggestion!

Wanted to let you know we had the BEST TIME on your tour. The driver was awesome. We drove around by ourselves our first day in town, and we couldn’t believe how much we had missed by trying to read the map, find sideroads, etc. The driver answered all of our questions, made great suggestions on wines we might like at each vineyard, and even helped us plan the rest of our trip. We expected somebody to just drive us around. What we got was a tour guide/concierge/travel agent/wine expert all in one. Wish we could take that driver every time we go on vacation.
