Fred was excellent! Right from the start when we were picking our wineries he was prompt in responding and helpful with suggestions on where we should go. Our favorite winery was one of his suggestions. He was right on time when he picked us up from our hotel in downtown San Francisco and was knowledgeable on wine, Napa and details about the San Francisco. He was easy to talk to, and a delight to spend the day with.

The tour was very enjoyable because of Brian's knowledge, the sites picked for the tour, the restaurant owners, food, etc.

Come hungry! Our guide Isabella was phenomenal. Incredible stories and excellent tour guide! I would do this again!
