The driver listened to my request about finding an specific wine he surprised at the last winery we visited and I was able to taste it and purchased a few bottles. Had a great time can’t wait to do it again. 1

Great ride, awful wineries

Trolley and driver was great. The wine tasting were awful! None of the 12 passengers bought nothing…that should tell you. Lunch was fantastic. The last wine tasting was terrible, it was a substitute as the scheduled winery cancelled. Not impressed

Very sorry that you were not happy with the selection of wine tasting stops. While we do switch stops up often, our groups love the stops we make. Perhaps it was a bad day for that last stop. Again very sorry you did not enjoy.

Me and my husband had lots of fun. We went to a vineyard that was a replica of Thomas Edison’s house. We also saw Danielle Stelle’s house and ate at Michael Chiarello’s restaurant. The food was delicious and the wine at all the stops. All the people on the trolley were very fun!

Disappointed

While Paul (our guide/driver) and the Constantinople winery were enjoyable, we did not expect $200 in tasting fees..especially given the tiny pours we were given; we didn’t stop at Domaine Chandon which was advertised; and we didn’t stop at the French-country bistro (The Girl and the Fig) for a gourmet spread os sandwiches, side salads and desserts. Instead, we stopped at a small family winery and were served mini pizzas and a salad. Bottom line...we would not do this again and cannot recommend this outing. ☹️
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
I am very sorry you felt that we did not stop at the places you had expected. We dont stop or advertise that we stop at Domaine Chandon any longer. It is an old picture but we do not state we stop there. Girl and the fig is also an old stop and has not been listed on our website for sometime. We actually stop at the world famous Chef Michael Chiarello Ottimo Restaurant and tasting room for lunch. Once again sorry this did not meet your expecations.

We had a blast in the Napa Wine Trolley. The wine tastings were great and socializing with others in the tour was fun! We got to taste some of the grapes off of the vine and learned a lot about the wine making process.

The driver was extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of Napa. He engaged with riders by sharing town history, current events impacting the area, personal stories as a native.
