This is a great way to go to the wine valleys. Jeffrey, our guide, was knowledgeable and entertaining. It was a relaxed tour of 3 very different wineries, with a stop off at the Oxbow Public Market in Napa for lunch. The group was diverse but all 14 got on really well. The quality of the wine was exceptional. Well worth the money.

Musical Van Tour

More than the wines we sampled - which were lovely, and the countryside - which was beautiful, was the spirit and energy in our happy van, and that was due to the personality of our driver Dylan. What a wild and crazy guy, yet at the same time, full of fun facts - I'll never forget one million bolts in the Golden Gate Bridge! And his fantastic playlist of songs, which he tailored to the tastes of the people in our small group, so that everyone went home happy. It is so true that the tour leader makes or breaks a great experience. The other people were very interesting and we had great conversations, of course everything getting even better as the day went on. Thanks for wonderful memories; Green Dream Tours, Dylan, and my van mates!
