My Reviews

“Bill was GREAT ! The best thing you can do is hire a driver when going wine tasting. Bill asked us what type of wines we liked and how we wanted to day to go, then he planned everything (no extra charge). he made reservations where needed (yes many of the wineries require reservations for tastings – things have changed) and made the day sooooo easy ! Will hire him again !”


“Bill provided a great experience for our 25th wedding anniversary vacation! Bill knows wine, he knows the area and he knows people at many of the wineries. We gave him a list of a few of the wineries we had heard about from friends and through reviews, and Bill blended this list with others that he believed we would like. We spent 2 days with Bill and he quickly understood what we liked and created a great experience for us. We would highly recommend Bill!”


“Bill is amazing!! This is the second time I’ve used Bill. He is very knowledgeable and makes sure he makes your tour special! He takes the time to make sure your time is well spent!”


“Bill was very knowledgeable about the area and got us tastings at several smaller wineries we would have never come across on our own. He was great company, a great driver, and we highly recommend him!”


“Bill was fantastic from the moment I requested a quote to the moment he dropped us off after the day of wine tasting. Bill responded quickly with his availability and answered all of the questions I had. He was available to communicate over phone or email as we planned our trip and made great recommendations for us based on the wineries, we knew we wanted to go to. Bill booked tours for us and took all of the guesswork out of the experience. At wineries where we did not have tours set up, he came in with us to make sure we were taken care of before waiting for us to finish our tasting. Bill was able to provide us with a lot of information as we drove between wineries, and he also took us to a great lunch spot to grab sandwiches. He also had a list of recommended restaurants for dinner that evening, and told us where we could go to ship our wine bottles back home. Overall, having bill as our driver and tour guide made our trip simple and enjoyable, I wouldn’t do it differently!”


“Remarkable to be able to find such a knowledgeable and engaging gentleman to share our wine road experience! He provided unique finds that we would have missed on our own. We highly recommend Bill as a wine tour guide!”


“We had a great day with Bill! He was very knowledgeable about the area and the wine making process, and offered up a lot of tips and recommendations based on our preferences. He was flexible with our timing, and a nice, mellow guy to spend the day with. We will definitely call Bill again when we return to the area.”


“Excellent driver who knows a lot about the area. Would hire him again for sure!”


“Thank you for making our day so memorable. My daughter and I had a wonderful time. Your choices of vineyards were excellent. I’m recommending you to all my friends and family.”


“Bill treated my friend, Alli and I like we were family. He was not only an excellent driver, but a very knowledgeable tour guide, offering interesting and relevant bits of information along the way. I had gone up to Napa and Sonoma before, but on this day I had learned a lot from Bill that I hadn’t known before. Bill asked us to submit our list the day before, which we did. On the day of our tour, Bill presented Alli and me with a printed list of our wineries in the order that we’d be visiting them. He thoughtfully offered opinions along with way, too (one might be very out of the way due to the time, for instance). Bill has tons of background knowledge! In addition, Bill walked us up into each winery to make sure we were either seated or had a place at the counter before he returned to our car to wait. When we were ready to leave, he was always watching for us and ready to go. We had asked Bill to take a picture of us outside each winery before departing, and of course, though we forgot, Bill never did! My cousins and I will be back this summer to Sonoma and Bill is our very first choice to take us around. He is the consummate professional, so kind and the best tour guide/driver ever!”


“Bill was much more than just a “driver” but he was our personal tour guide for the day. He showed up early and even brought a cooler of waters for us. Bill was extremely knowledgeable about Napa and all the wineries and was a genuinely nice and friendly man. I would HIGHLY recommend Bill to anyone looking for a safe and wonderful experience.”


“Bill is very accommodating, knowledgeable and the perfect blend of involved & helpful throughout the day while not being intrusive. Leading up to our trip, Bill was very responsive to both email and phone calls. Next time I’m in Napa I will certainly give Bill a call! Bill, you made the most of our day in Napa, THANK YOU!!”


“Thanks to Bill, my boyfriend and I had a wonderful Napa and Sonoma experience. We spent two days with Bill in mid-November and it couldn’t have been a better trip. He helped coordinate our schedule by suggesting the best wineries for us to visit based on our price points, favorite wines and such. He was friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the area. He took care of us, doing everything from bring a cooler of water bottles to escorting us into the wineries with a huge golf umbrella to shield us from the unexpected November rains. We already plan to hire Bill again on our next trip to the Napa valley.!”


“Bill was excellent. My new husband and I were on our honeymoon and had planned nothing. We had no idea where to go, and Bill made it easy on us. He paced the day beautifully, introduced us to some of the vineyard owners, and got us several free tastings by mentioning that we were on our honeymoon. He also broke things up nicely with a stop for lunch in a vineyard garden, and later in the day he suggested an olive oil tasting as a way to switch from wine for a little while, which turned out to be different and fun! He was an excellent, professional guide and was informative and friendly, but also gave us our privacy during the tastings and lunch. I highly recommend him.”


“Bill was an excellent driver and I’d highly recommend him to anyone looking to get a private tour of Napa Valley. We had a party of 2 and made a last minute booking with Bill the day before our tour. Despite the short notice he was very accommodating and did his best to correspond with us to get a preliminary list of places to visit based on my suggestions of the types of venues we’d like to see. Bill arrived promptly, was friendly and professional and started off by presenting us with a list of dinner recommendations for that night and helped us book a place later in the day. He then proceeded to take us to a nearby winery and used the time while we were tasting to make reservations at some of the places we had agreed upon. Despite our late planning he was able to get us into some hard to book family owned vineyards which were a refreshing break from the usual tourist places we’ve been to before. We even got an ad hoc tour of the newly build caves on one property!”
