Napa Valley Wine Tour Reviews


Nuestro viaje al valle de Napa, una gran inversión turística de lujo!‎

Perfecta organización y calidad de servicio, desde luego la mejor inversiones para una semana de viaje de negocios y placer en el valle de Napa.
Nada que objetar, perfecto conocimiento del idioma y de las zonas, bodegas y lugares a visitar. Un trato de lujo, desde la recepción y el tour en las limosinas con los banquetes de piqueos y vinos, los restaurantes a donde fuimos para almorzar, todo de primera.! Desde luego muy recomendable a todo aquel que quiera visitar California con detalle.

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.

Many thanks to Golden Horizon Travel tour guides for the excellent organization of our group wine tasting tour in Napa Valley wine country! We have been very demanding and you guys have been there for us . We appreciate your patience! Your tour leaders realized all our travel needs and wine tasting tours from winery to winery in Napa Valley in the best way! That was very organized and awesome! I can say with no hesitation: this tour deserves 5 Stars! I do recommend Golden Horizon Tours to every one! You will be in Good Hands! A good tip; book your restaurant a head of time in Napa Valley even for a small group! Not easy to get in! Napa valley wineries require appointments prior to the wine tasting tours! I know! We should know that! Well, we required a customized tour itinerary to visit our favorite wineries and forgot to book these wineries- Your tour guides were so helpful and made our day thanks to their relationship with the wine makers! Ooff! All the best from all of us!

Habíamos estado planeando nuestro viaje a San Francisco desde hace más de un mes entre mi esposo y yo, queríamos que nuestro viaje fuera perfecto y sobre todo queríamos conocer el valle de Napa, habíamos leído muchos testimonios de viajes en varios sitios por internet, y felizmente escogimos bien, el personal de Golden Horizon Travel nos organizo un tour a la medida de nuestros gustos y expectativas, siguiendo sus consejos pudimos visitar 5 viñedos y degustar los famosos vinos  de Napa a precios más accesibles que en otros sitios, Napa es sumamente famosa por sus ricos vinos tintos  y  por ende las degustaciones  de vinos son sumamente costosos, pero gracias a los consejos de nuestro director turístico pudimos probar los ricos vinos de Napa  sin preocuparnos  del bolsillo. Sobre todo porque escogimos bien y aprovechamos el tiempo al máximo entre cada una de las visitas a las vinerías de Napa.
Nosotros contratamos nuestro paseo privado así podíamos aprovechar mejor el tiempo, conocer más y sobretodo viajar de acuerdo a nuestras preferencias y no sujeto a un itinerario establecido o otros turistas.

Gracias por hacer nuestro viaje privado a Napa tan divertido, ameno e interesante!

WINE COUNTRY PRIVATE SUV TOUR‎

When we think of Wine country I immediately think of Napa Valley and its famous wines, the place is so beautiful and the land is so rich in minerals and soils and I learned that the microclimates all influence in wines quality. In Napa Wineries we had the opportunity to taste some Cabernets Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Chardonnay all were delicious, we couldn't wait to buy a dozen of bottles and take back at home and share these wines with our friends. We really loved how your tour guided show us this famous Napa and Sonoma Wine country tour on a SUV
Thank you

Your tour name Wine Discover tour to Napa and Sonoma is well named. This tour combines the best from both regions of Sonoma and Napa, famous regions of  California Wine Country. We had time to savor  wines, sparkling wines and also eat some delicious cheese.  It was really a great tour.  Sonoma and Napa have many wineries and if you didn't  show us the best wineries from Napa and Sonoma I thought we were  completely lost.  We had many chances to speak with people from other cities and we agreed that both regions have many things to offer not only for their wines, but also for their sceneries, sites and culture and most of all for the kind people who lives in Napa and Sonoma.
Best regards,

Wine Country Private Tour in San Francisco

good job guys ..!! we enjoyed a lot our Private tour to the Wine Country, we enjoyed the smaller wineries that buses aren't able go to, and we had more fun in this way because we felt more family in this way to go and visit the vineyards without the big crowds. thank you so much.. we'll highly recommend your tour to anyone who visits San Francisco and the next time we will take the tour again with your company best, Gavin Dawn


I LEARNED WINE MAKING PROCESS IN MY WINE COUNTRY TOUR
I learned a lot from my wine country tour, my private tour to Napa and Sonoma allowed me to meet some winemakers who explained the process of wine making, it was interesting! Never imagine that it is so complex.
then I had the chance to taste red wines, white wines, dessert wines and zinfandel thank you for the free complementary tasting you offered me. I will highly recommend your WINE COUNTRY TOUR to all my friends.

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 Tour review by Francisco Castignolli. Sedona-Arizona

Your wine country private tour to Napa via Sonoma went behind our expectations! We hired one of your private wine country tour guides (Albert) and wanted tour particular wineries in Napa Valley for wine tasting. However, we ended up sticking with your private country tour guide plan visiting different wineries Off the Beaten Path! We loved touring these hidden wineries in Napa where we met with some friendly wine makers. My wife came up with a list of wineries for this private country tour to Napa wineries. We found out that these Napa wineries wine tasting fees are outrageous! Up to $25 for a single glass of wine! These wineries are so business oriented! Quite frankly, your private country tour not only saved our time but our money as well. We have been already on private country tour in Napa Valley, we didn't have the same service we had this time with Golden Horizon Travel. Your private wine country tour guide took us to these small hidden wineries where we enjoyed; both the service provided by the wine specialists and the wine tasting in Napa Valley. Some winemakers waved our wine tasting fees thanks to your tour guide. Moreover, a winemaker in Sonoma (on the way back from Napa to SF) offered my wife a free bottle of Pinot Noir for her birthday. We hired a limousine to Napa on our last private wine country tour to Napa Valley, the driver took us to those famous and business oriented wineries! In addition, we have been charged $125.00 over time for two additional hours we spent in the traffic and in Sausalito! We decided to write this review for Golden Horizon Travel regarding our last private wine country tour experience to Napa wineries. Your private wine country tour to Napa did exceed our expectations Adam. Thank you for the additional 1 ½ you kindly offered us for no charge! We will recommend your private wine country tour to Napa Valley in our town .We went on your private wine country tour to Napa with low expectations and came back to our hotel so happy. You did exceed our expectations! Thank you very much Golden Horizon Travel.

SAN FRANCISCO WINE COUNTRY THE BEST OF TWO VALLEY NAPA AND SONOMA

I just came back from my wonderful tour to Napa and Sonoma Wine country, the tour was incredibly fun, first we went to Viansa to taste some wines and we met a sommelier to explain us the wine process, then we went to a Castle in Napa to taste more wines and enjoy the view of the valley.
we were so lucky that our tour guide know the region so well because I read that there are at least 12,000 wineries in the wine country but the regions are not only famous for wines also for their famous culinary institute.

We decided to send you this post card from Duomo di Milano Cathedral in Milan were we live. We really had a good time on your Napa Wine Tour with other friendly people from New York and Florida to. We love Barbera wine here in Italy. We were surprised by the quality of the American Barbera wine. We really enjoyed the guided Biodynamic Vineyard Tram Tour & Tasting in Sonoma Mountains. The picnic was awesome. Many thanks from my wife and I to your friendly and knowledgeable tour guide who made this tour Unique and memorable.

Wine discovery tour with Golden Horizon Travel

Sun, Wine & Fun! That is how we describe our wine discovery tour with Golden Horizon Travel. After the great tour they offered us to Carmel, Monterey, and Big Sur. We decided to explore the wine country to Sonoma & Napa with Golden Horizon Travel. That was a fantastic tour! Excellent! The Tour Guide(Adam) was flexible and hilarious! He offered us more wineries and free wine tasting. We really had fun with other folks from Norway, Spain, and Boston! We are both travel agents from Australia. We relay a lot on reviews! I would rate this tour more than 5 but that's the maximum this site offers. Don't waste time looking for a good wine country tour-Go with Golden Horizon Travel.com! You will be in Good Hands! Trust me !

Hi Everybody, I am Melissa Roggers.I live in Berkeley California where I work as a Lab Sales Manager. My mother came over to visit from Vermont. We are both wine lovers. We like Pinots and Chard. Our favorite place in the Wine Country is the Silverado Trail up in Calistoga(Napa Valley). I decided to write this review because this is how I found the best tour to the wine country after reading some reviews about Golden Horizon Travel! It's overwhelming when it comes to choosing a tour company from the Search Engines ! Lots of tour business are brokers and often have nothing to do with the tour industry. I was lucky to read a couple of reviews about Golden Horizon Travel before booking my private wine country tour to Napa Valley. I have to say that I love the wine country. I could drive for about an hour and explore it on my own. But the highway Patrols are always their scanning the roads for those who drink and drive. I am not taking any risk. My Mom & I spent quality time in some small hidden wineries on the Silverado Trail, in upper Napa Valley. We met with some friendly winemakers. We really had a great time .I hope that will help you to choose your next private tour to San Francisco Wine Country . Thank you Golden Horizon Travel and Thanks Adam "the tour guide"
Sincerely,
Melissa Roggers Berkeley-California


MUIR WOODS WINE COUNTRY TOUR REVIEW

My name is Petra. I am from Delft Holland. I study Computer Engineering. My friend Norma and met with a student who used Golden Horizon Travel Muir Woods wine country tour. We called Golden Horizon Travel just a day before our arrival on KLM to SFO. They added us to a small group tour to Woods wine country tour on the SUV. That was fantastic. Our camera didn't work. The tour guide, Peter, took our photos and sent them all via email. Norma & I wanted to say:
bedankt,  "Thank you" Golden Horizon Travel!

Hello everybody! My Name is Michael; I live in Cleveland-Ohio. My girl friend and I decided to celebrate our 10th anniversary in San Francisco-California this year. We were looking for a private SUV Tour Company specialized in wine tasting tours. We got really confused and overwhelmed by the number of tour companies who pretends running private SUV tours in San Francisco bay area. We called over 10 different companies; almost all of them were brokers located in the East Coast and the Midwest! We finally could narrow down to five private tour companies- 3 of them were not professional, they even do not provide online payment. We ended up with two choices, the first tour company is pretty big and busy, and they never returned our phone calls. However, the second one was finally the good one. It's a mid size tour company based in San Francisco down town known as GOLDEN HORIZON TRAVEL We were blessed and happy to be safe. We really had fun in the wine country. The tour guide manager to offer us complimentary wine tasting. We visited small wineries and met with some friendly wine makers .The owner offered us two extra hours for no charge. In addition, the driver dropped us at SFO airport for no charge. This is what I call good customer service!

Thank you Golden Horizon Travel!

I am a travel agent from Canada. We were on your private bus tour that started in San Francisco and ended down in San Diego after the Rose Bowl parade in Pasadena, on December 2007-January 2008. My group and I were supposed to have a free day in San Francisco. However, we decided to go on your Wine Discovery Tour. We loved the scenery, the wine, and the cheese and the BBQ at the Sonoma Historic Town Plaza. My group had a great time and we thank you for combining Napa and Sonoma in one-day tour. That was perfect and a pleasant experience for all of us.

Sincerely,

Napa Wine tour and Sonoma Wine Country tour all in one day wine tasting tour is awesome! We loved it!  This is California best wine tasting tours! Napa Valley Wine tour has a lot to offer. Napa wine tour is different from Sonoma wine country. Both Napa and Sonoma wine tours complete each other. The wine country tasting tour is pretty relaxing offering great wine tasting within famous and small wineries. Napa wine tour offers excellent wine tasting such Mondavi wine in Napa Valley. However, we liked Sonoma wine tour where we tasted excellent ancient wine such the ancient Zinfandel and petit Syrah in small wineries off the beaten baths. We did not know that Napa Valley tour would include and cover such a large wine growing region. We really enjoyed tasting great wine and sparkling wine along the Silverado trail wine tour in  Napa Valley. Napa wine tour requires at least one full day to explore Napa Valley in-depth. Napa Valley has so many wineries which makes it hard to explore without a local tour guide. In addition, the wine tasting involves so many wine & varietals we have never heard of such Viognier & Barbera ancient grapes. The wine tasting along Sonoma valley is more peaceful and less crowded than the wine tour in Napa Valley. On our next trip, We would like to explore the wine country in-depth including Sonoma & Napa Valleys and probably the Russian Valley wine country. Thank you Golden Horizon Travel for offering such great wine country tours in Napa and Sonoma. Your wine country tour guide (Nicolas)was Great!

Napa wine tour exceeded our expectations! Napa Valley tour covers such a large area-We were glad to go on your Napa Valley wine tasting tours because it offered   us enough time to explore Napa Valley wineries in-depth. The upper part of Napa Valley such Calistoga and St Helena is more interesting than the southern part of Napa Valley. The Napa Valley wine tasting tour offered us the best rose, red and white wine tasting of California wine country wine tasting. We loved tasting Napa ancient Zinfandel wine. Napa Wine tour offered us a variety of wine and champagne .Napa wine is fruity and earthy. We also enjoyed the walking tour in Napa Valley wineries with some wine makers. We have great pictures of some interesting architecture of Napa famous wineries such Castello di Amorosa. The wine country tour to Napa Valley will always remind us of the great time your Napa Wine Tour offered us. Thank you all at Golden Horizon Travel. You made the difference and exceeded our expectations.

Golden Horizon Travel's wine country tour to Napa Valley has really exceeded our expectations! Napa Valley tour is not only about wine but also, about architecture, local dishes & wine that make the Napa wine tour unique. We had such a good time enjoying Napa wine and food at the Culinary Institute in St. Helena. After lunch in the upper part of Napa Valley Wine Country, we had really fun on your Napa Valley wine tasting tours along the scenic Silverado trail wineries in Northern Napa Valley. The upper part of Napa Valley wine country such Calistoga and St Helena is more interesting than the southern part of Napa Valley. My boy friend prefers the southern part of Napa Valley. He enjoyed the desert wine tasting at Bouchaine in Napa Valley.
Napa wine tasting offered us great white Zinfandel wine. However, we prefer the red Zinfandel and Pinot noir. Napa Wine tour offered us a great stop at Mumms where we enjoyed champagne wine tasting out door. Napa Valley is so picturesque. We hope will make it one more time next year to Napa and Sonoma Valley wineries.

Marisa dePaulis-Hawn Muir Woods Tour Review with San Francisco city tour, Wine Country Tour Review, Monterey Carmel tour review: My mother recently had her 80th birthday. Having lost her husband, my father, 6 months ago, my sister and I decided to take my mother on a trip to refresh her mind and body. She is recovering from a stroke. She had never seen California before. We live on the East Coast. We wanted to see the redwoods, the pacific, the wine country, the golden gate, the city and all the wonders found in the Bay area. We only had 4 days to see all these things....what to do? How do we make sure my mother is safe, comfortable, relaxed and enjoying these sights? Luck led to meet Adam at golden horizon travel.com I spoke with Adam by phone, he understood our needs, and we arranged a two-day private tour. My family can not say enough good things about Adam. He was kind, protective, proactive, knowledgeable from history to horticulture, multi-lingual, musical, humorous, interesting, a safe driver, great company, polite, a great teacher.... and the list can continue until all superlatives in the English language are exhausted. My mother is still talking about the trip and how perfect it was even with the recent fires. Adam knew how to outsmart the smoke and the traffic. We saw everything we hoped for, and more without the trip being hectic or exhausting. The pace was comfortable and we learned and experienced with joy. The tour was customized to us and our unique situation. Adam did everything to be at my mother's arm at every door step and incline. He even borrowed a golf cart from a golfer at Pebble Beach in order to give my mother a ride, sparing her a steep, outside staircase. We did not need to ask...he intuitively knew how to help and be "present" to our needs. If you are considering a tour with Adam and Golden Horizon Travel.com , I hope you will make a reservation. You will not be disappointed and I happy to be a reference. Thank you, Adam. My mother is still boasting to all about you.
Happy Travels

Our tours of San Francisco, Muir Woods and the famous Wine Country were amazing. Adam, of Golden Horizon Travel, was the perfect host. He not only took us to all the important sites but also to lesser-known areas, so we could enjoy the local flavor. We loved every minute of our experience, which was truly enhanced by Adam's personal and friendly manner. Would we travel with Golden Horizons Travel again ! In a New York...I mean...In a San Francisco minute!
by Michael Matis


What I liked most of my Wine Country Tour IS definitely the small wineries that Golden Horizon Travel tour-guide took us in our Private SUV Wine Country Tour.  Believe me, you were treated in a special way, the winemakers are friendlier and they do not hesitate to show you their wineries, you would feel that you are part of the team.  Highly recommendable this tour if you don't have which wineries to go, let this guys from Golden Horizon Travel choose for you.!!   My wife and I had such a great time.
Thank you

Dear Adam,

We have been on many wine tours before in the US ,in France and in Virginia. But your Napa wine tour was unique and different. We were supposed to be on a large group. However, we were pick-up at the Sir San Francis hotel on a fancy SUV for no extra charge. The tour guide was great. He used humor to share with his interesting background about the Napa viticulture and geography. The wine , the scenery and the wine makers we met were friendly and made our wine tour unique!
Best Regards,
Ron and Pat Pierson


The   Muir woods & wine tour to Sonoma and Napa was the best we could find for the only day we had in San Francisco. Our flight was canceled so we had an extra day to spend in San Francisco. We really like your website. It's so informative and easy to use. Muir Wood is closer to Sausalito than we thought.  Muir Wood park & the coastal redwoods are  awesome. We have seen the sequoias few years ago in the Yosemite, but the redwoods are much taller than Sequoias. We enjoyed the hike on one of Muir Wood park hiking trails. Muir Woods  also allowed to  learn more about John Muir and redwoods. We wanted to thank for the extra stop your tour guide made at Muir Beach and Sausalito. Sausalito is spectacular. Sausalito cottage houses and Sausalito houseboats are cute. Sausalito is charming and has a lot to offer. We decided to come back to sightseeing Sausalito and enjoy a dinner at Horizons overlooking the bay. Your  Private SUV tours offered us what we could see during the day. We enjoyed the drive after Muir woods to Sonoma & Napa wine country tour.


Napa wine tour with Sonoma Wine Country tour all one day is exactly what we looking for. Napa Valley Wine is different of Sonoma wine. We don't know that much about wine. We should spend more time in Napa and Sonoma valleys to see the difference. The wine country tasting tour on such small group was so relaxing. Napa tour offers more wine tasting within Napa famous wineries. However, we liked Sonoma wine tour where we tasted excellent wine in small wineries off the beaten baths.  Napa wine tour requires at least one or two day to explore Napa in depth. We wish we could have more time. Sonoma Valley seems easier to explore and less crowded than Napa wineries. We have a great time in both Sonoma & Napa Valleys. Thank you Golden Horizon Travel.

California wine country tour can't be completed without tasting Napa & Sonoma Wine tour. We visited Sonoma and Napa Valley's 4 years ago aboard a motor coach wine tour. We only so 10% of Napa Valley and  30% Sonoma. Your Wine Country Discovery wine tour to Napa and Sonoma combines both and offers more quality tine in the wine country of  Sonoma and Napa Valleys. The Wine Country tour to Sonoma and Napa all one day is Great! I wish we could have more time to explore California's best wine tasting tours to Napa & Sonoma wineries in two-day tour
 We loved the back roads such the trinity scenic road that links Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley .We had an outdoor BBQ in Napa Valley in middle the vineyards. We really enjoyed Napa Wine tour in the Northern part of Napa Valley. Soma of Napa wineries wine tasting is pretty expensive, we were lucky that the tour guides knows 
the wine makers who waved our fees. The wine country wine tasting tour is so more interesting with a tour guides who knows the back roads  and the hidden wineries. We prefer Napa and Sonoma Small wineries rather than the big wineries in Napa Valley. Napa Valley famous wineries are crowded. Thank you all for making our vacation and tour to the wine country so memorable.

Muir Woods & Wine Country Tour

I am James Lee Wang from Maui. We colleagues and I was on Your Muir Woods Wine Country in October 2007. The redwoods and the flora of Muir Woods was an interesting discovery for us. We are all firefighters. We accepted to enjoy good wine in the Sonoma Valley. However, we did expects your tour guide surprise who offered us a free tour guides tour on his break time to Napa Firefighters Museum in downtown Napa (with it's antique engines, hand pampers, newspaper clippings) The tour was great but also the tour guide was friendly and spontaneous. We went on Monterey tour bus; the tour guide was chatty and bookish. That was boring.
We all thank for offering such small group and personalized tours.
