Experience San Francisco with us

If you happen to find yourself in San Francisco, then why not explore Wine Country during a Napa Valley Tour? As the most famous wine making region in the United States, Napa Valley enjoys world-wide recognition for its production of superior grapes. It’s also home to some of the best American Fine Dining restaurants in the country. As a result, food and beverage are at the heart of any Napa Valley trip. The rolling hills and quaint towns make for some excellent Napa Valley sightseeing, as well. Most Napa Valley daytrip packages include multiple visits to various exclusive vineyards for wine tasting. But, a Napa Valley vacation offers much more than that, too. You can combine wine tasting with a visit to the giant Coastal Redwood forests. Or, pair your tour with a visit to Alcatraz and other museums. It’s a great way to escape the busy city; and that’s why we believe a Napa Valley Tour is one of the best things to do around San Francisco.


High demand, seasonal availability and unexpected closures can be the reason. We're working on getting it up and running. Meanwhile, you can search for other activities on our website. We don’t want you to leave disappointed!

Our tips for San Francisco

  • Enough’s enough! If you can, try to visit no more than 4 wineries per day. Three wine tastings is optimal. You’d be surprised how intoxicating a Napa Valley Tour can be!
  • Don’t sleep on Napa. Many visitors to Napa Valley hit the wineries, but skip Napa proper. Napa is a beautiful and quaint town that feels frozen in time. It’s the perfect place to rest and refuel.
  • Who’s the D.D.? If you plan on doing a lot of tasting during your Napa Valley excursion, you need to plan ahead and bring a designated driver. Booking a Napa Valley guided tour can save you quite a few headaches, too!

Best time to visit

The best time to visit Napa Valley depends on what’s most important to you. If you’d like to experience Harvest Season, come during August through October. Please keep in mind that Harvest Season is also peak tourist season. Thus, you will experience higher prices for everything, including food, wine, and lodging. The shoulder seasons probably provide the best overall experience. Both the weather and the prices are mild. Don’t be afraid to book a Napa Valley Tour during the winter. You’ll find wineries open year-round and it’s nice to have the undivided attention of your pourer.

Getting there

Most visitors on a Napa Valley trip fly into San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and then hit the road. Driving around San Francisco can be quite hectic and stressful; but, thankfully, you’ll find plenty of available shuttles that will take you to Napa. What you’ll do once you get there is another story. A guided tour might be preferable to some, since it usually includes hotel pick-up and drop-off, saving you both time and money. Napa Valley can be reach by taking the BART and then hopping on some Napa County busses. But, why bother when the major Driver App companies provide such a hassle-free experience?

Money saving tips

On a strict schedule? No problem! You can save yourself some time and frustration by remembering one thing: Bring your I.D.! You have no idea how many visitors in Napa Valley have lost a significant amount of time backtracking to their hotels to pick up a passport or driver’s license so they can actually taste something during their wine tasting tour!
