Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Customizable Wine Country Tour from San Francisco submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
Absolutely one of the best opportunities to taste wine and meet people from other places!
A hint: Be prepared to tell the tour guide what you are most interested in and then they negotiate with the other tourists.
Mark was funny and I really enjoyed the history he gave regarding the places we toured. He also gave great recommendations regarding where to eat during lunch. I enjoyed the fact that I didn't feel so rushed and enjoyed the small group so that there was more of an intimate feel to the tour.Reviewed by: Gayle D, USA, March 2013
Our Tour guide Don was wonderful. He was extremely knowledgeable about San Francisco and Wine Country. We had a fabulous day touring Napa and Sanoma. We would highly recommend this tour.Reviewed by: Ashley D, January 2013
I was in San Francisco on business and my wife booked this tour for me on my only day off. We saw great places and had choice in where we went! The driver was great and would definitely go again.Reviewed by: Kim B, USA, December 2012
The tour was ok, but NOT customizable. If you are choosing it for that reaspon, call to ok your visits beforehand. Otherwise, the guide will deny your request in favor of preset (cheaper?) stops of his choice. The facility I really wanted to see was across the street from the one pushed on us.Reviewed by: Priscilla G, January 2013 Note from Viator
Thank you for the feedback. The itinerary is not set in advance to allow the guide to tailor the tour to guest requests and tastes. Wineries may be visited that others have enjoyed in the past but we do not want guests to feel like they are "pushed" into a particulare winery. There may be a reason your request could not be accomodated such as availability. Many of the exclusive tasting rooms in Napa require advance appointments, and therefore we recommend that any guests with special requests add this to the comments in their reservation. At Viator, we strive to improve our guests' experience and will investigate this matter further.
