Overview

Wine Country Tour Shuttle, with its Super High 94% TripAdvisor Rating Score operates from San Francisco to either Napa or Sonoma. We encourage wine lovers to go on both our Wine Country Tours because the different wine regions are so uniquely different. Our Napa Experience Tour visits 4 wineries and has a picnic lunch and a 50-minute relaxing ferry cruise included. See the reviews below to see how well the picnic lunch and the ferry cruise is so well received. The Sonoma Experience Tour (local favorite tour) is new for us and has great reviews below because we picked 2 fantastic wineries, plus we put together a walking map of Sonoma square where guests can get one free pour at each location. Wine Country Tour Shuttle received the 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award.

This is an easy way to get a nice tour of the Napa wine country. Not being wine connoisseurs, and just looking for a way to get a feel for Napa and the wines, this was a good choice for us. The morning starts with...More

I thought the selection of wineries was great. They gave us enough time at each place to have a few tastes and buy whatever we wanted to. I hadn't been on a wine tour before and would definitely prefer going on my own just so...More

We went to Napa. Lee, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable. I especially liked VSattui Winery. We had a diverse group from as far away as Japan, Scotland & Canada and I'm from the east coast! A very enjoyable trip.

We went to Napa. Phillip, the tour guide, was amazing, knowledgable, fun, helpful. The wineries were good, especially the 2nd one, called VSattui Winery. This winery is the best, they have food, excellent service, excellent wine and affordable. We had an amazing time.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized

I believe this answer is on the FAQs on the companies website but we were back at the San Fran Ferry Terminal by 5:15. Even if you are running 30 minutes late, you should make your flight in plenty of time.

St. Francis Westin was good for us, but anywhere around the square or the waterfront (near or on Embarcadero) and you're a very short bus or trolly ride to the shuttle. Or you can enjoy a 20-30 minute walk from the St... More

We didn't stay in Napa, so I can't comment on hotels in that area. As for wineries, I would recommend Robert Mondavi for sure
