Average 4.24 out of 5 stars based on 2357 verified reviews from Cool Destinations and TripAdvisor.
I first want to say our tour guy (Russian Guy) was extremely knowledgeable. Not only about the area, but about wine. He was also entertaining.
The first two winery stops were amazing. I had never heard of them, but the wine was outstanding. The last stop was just ok.
The only suggestion I would make is to start in Napa and work your way back. It seemed like a lot of back-tracking.
Nice vineyards with a selection of wines, engaging tour guide and some great views for photos. High recommended.
