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
take a moment to see what some of our visitors have had to say about
their experiences touring the Valley in the Napa Wine Shuttle.
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
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
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.
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
David and Annabelle
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.
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
Cindy and Dan Thompson
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!
Leeds, United Kingdom
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 couldnt
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.
