Napa Valley Wine Country Tour Review

My husband and I visited California for the first time and had the pleasure of booking Adam and Golden Horizon for a wine tasting tour. We had a fabulous time! Adam was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He selected the vineyards that suited our tastes. We would definitely repeat this trip in the future.

"Beyond my expectations, thanks to Golden Horizon Travel!"

Date of review: Nov 29, 2010

I hired Golden Horizon Tours to show my husband's European relatives around in French. Since these individuals were eighty plus years old and did not speak English, other bus tours which provided headsets with audio translations seemed insufficient from the perspective of their comfort, safety and what they would get out of the experience, so we decided to splurge for three private/semi-private tours of San Francisco and the Bay; Monterey and Carmel and Muir Woods/Sausalito.

Because of Adam, their terrific tour guide, the tours went incredibly well--indeed, beyond my expectations. He was friendly, charming and caring as well as extremely well-informed and reliable. My mother-in-law commented that she felt she now knew San Francisco better than she knew the city in which she lives! My relatives couldn't have been in better hands and been more pleased with the tours. They had a great time which they will never forget!

Napa Valley Wine Tasting & Private Limousine Tour Review
"The highlight of our vacation!"

Date of review: Nov 27, 2010

What a wonderful experience we had in Sonoma and Napa Valley thanks to Adam, our tour guide, and Gorden Horizon Tours. We were 8 women travelling from Canada to San Francisco for a 4-day girls weekend. Our day of touring around California wine country in a limo with Adam was, by far, the highlight of our trip!! We would absolutely do it again.

Adam was informative, accommodating and very entertaining (we laughed the entire day) and he went above and beyond to make this a wonderful day for us. The limo picked us up at our hotel in San Francisco. We stopped at the Golden Gate bridge for a photo op on the way up to Sonoma, and Adam graciously offered to play photographer for the group then, and many more times throughout the day.

He tailored our tour to give us a good overview of different wines and the different types of wineries in the area. He gave us a tour of each winery we visited, as well as the surrounding properties, providing information about the history and various functions of each place. We learned about the process of wine making, the types of grapes used, how the grapes are grown and harvested, and much more. We visited Cline Winery, Viansa (our collective favourite), stopped for lunch in Sonoma, and then we were off to Artesa Winery in Napa.

We had private wine tastings at 2 of the 3 wineries which was a real treat. The money we spent for the tour was offset by the discounts and savings we got at the various wineries thanks to Adam's connections. We had so much fun that we even extended our tour an extra 2 hours!

Without a doubt, this was well worth the money and made for one of the most memorable experiences of our trip. I would highly recommend Golden Horizon's tour services and of course, Adam! I only hope that Adam had as much fun with us, as we did with him!

"A good combo tour Wine country plus Muir woods park"

Date of review: Mar 5, 2010

You can do that !! Visit Muir Woods national park and California Wine country in one day tour !! yes. You can do that too.. We did the tour in one day with Golden Horizon Travel, our tour guide Adam was great! He guided us through the giant redwoods in muir woods park where spent almost 2 to hours instead of 1 hour…..the coastal Redwoods are tall and beautiful! You got to see that to believe it. The tour guide showed us the many loops to walk around so the largest and tallest redwoods with muir woods park. After visiting muir woods national monument, our tour guide drove us to Sonoma Wine Country to visit some wineries and enjoy wine tasting in small wineries. We liked the Zinfandel, the chardonnay, and also the dessert wines and we had a chat with a winemaker who kindly explained how wine is made . This combo tour was so educational and wine tasting fees were all free of charge thanks to Golden Horizon Tours. This Muir Woods and Wine Country Tour is a full day tour you can do both and have fun. Many thanks

Una excelente experiencia que recordar! A nombre de mi familia y yo queremos agradecerle Golden Horizon Tour y a Adam , nuestro guia, por la aventura y la experiencia de nuestro viaje a San Francisco, Sonoma, y Napa. Tambien a todo el equipo que trabajo para que nuestra experiencia del paseo en el globo aeroestatico fuera excelente y seguro. Definitivamente este sera un lindo recuerdo en nuestras vidas. De verdad que nos divertimos mucho, y que valio la pena el tiempo y el dinero invertido. Se nota la buena experiencia que tiene Adam con turistas y su conocimiento de la zona. Gracias por el trato especial que nos diste!

On this our first trip to Napa, my wife and I booked with this company to provide a guide to direct us to some of the wineries. Also, we were interested in a balloon trip. They provided both to us at a reasonable cost.

We had a great time. Our guide, Albert, was excellent and fun to be with. He took us to outstanding wineries that we would otherwise have not visited.

The balloon trip was the perfect way to view the valley as we floated a mere 100 feet above some vineyards (the balloon had an altimeter on board) and as high as 2700 feet for a view of the entire valley and distant San Francisco. We enjoyed being in the small basket without a lot of other people. Terry (our pilot) was very experienced and offered explanations of the flight as we went. We ended up landing in a school parking lot and many of the neighbors came out to enjoy the balloon, too. It was nice to be able to meet some locals in this way.
It would not be possible to construct a better experience than we had with Adam.
Wonderful Experience in Napa

Siempre había leído sobre la posibilidad de combinar un paseo por los viñedos de Napa y hacer    un viaje en globo aerostático  de aire caliente por el valle de Napa, nuestro paseo empezó volando por el aire tibio de la mañana en globo, éramos un grupo de amigos que nos pusimos de acuerdo para recorrer el valle por globo ya que era una aventura diferente, el paseo en globo fue super calmado y relajado,  luego del paseo nuestro guía nos llevo a  probar los famosos vinos del valle de Napa, tuvimos oportunidad de almorzar en uno de los exquisitos restaurantes gourmet de la zona de Napa y visitar dos viñedos después. El tour es bastante divertido y muy  diferente a otros!!

Wine Country Private Custom Tour Reviews

"It would not be possible to construct a better experience than we had with Adam."

It would not be possible to construct a better experience than we had with Adam. My wife and I were not interested in the "tour bus" experience, and we don't know enough about wine or vineyards to make intelligent choices as to destinations. From the moment he picked us up at the door of our hotel in San Francisco, Adam began custom designing our day around our preferences. What kind of wine do you like, what kind of experience do you want today, how can I provide you the best possible service? Adam's personality, knowledge of local history, vineyards and wine making, and personal relationships made this an A+ day.

We almost passed over Golden Horizon because we mistakenly assumed from their website that they were a big company that would not concentrate on quality or individual service. Boy, were we wrong! Relying on Trip Advisor recommendations, we made our way back to Golden Horizon, and we recommend them enthusiastically.
