Fun Day Trip to the Vineyards with plenty of Vino!
Angela_L
, Dec 2021
The variety of vineyards and associated wines was wonderful. The bus was comfortable and the driver kept the ride interesting with a wide range of facts and historical points of interest. We had a refreshingly diverse set of people as part of our tour which added to the experience greatly. I highly recommend this as a part of a visit to the Bay Area.

Our tour guide was amazing! He was a safe and knowledgeable driver. He provided a nice history and pop culture blurb. Overall, the wineries were great. There was one tasting site that wasn't very friendly. They seemed a bit short with the tour and I observed them being very rude to other patrons. Of course, this company can't help how the companies will behave but I felt the unease. Otherwise, take this tour! You'll enjoy it. I'm going to do it again when my friends come in January.

The whole trip was planned well to attend 3 wineries. The lunch break could be shortened to 1 hour as when we reached the 3rd winery, we did not get much time to relax there.

Hello Khush, thank you so much for sharing your feedback with us. We like to plan at least 75' for our lunch stop as sometimes it can get busy to get a table in the area. I'm happy to know that overall you found our tour well planned. I hope you'll come and join our tours again soon! Xavier General Manager Gray Line San Francisco

Antonio gave us a great experience, we have a wonderful day and went to great wineries, however the tour could add some extra time in Napa
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Thanks for your review, Eduard. Depending on the wine itinerary we follow, we spend more or less time in Napa. I believe that Sonoma is as beautiful as Napa can be, but I understand that this is my subjective opinion! Thanks for your great rate, and we look forward to welcoming you back soon!

A fun trip, but does not follow Covid-19 protocol.

I really wanted to give this tour a great review, as the tour guide was very friendly and the vineyards were wonderful. However, my complaint is also a pretty big one as it relates to safety. We were told when this tour happened that when travelling and in enclosed spaces that masks were mandatory. To be honest that is one of the reasons we selected this tour. However, instead there were multiple people on board who did not wear masks. I also realize that this would be difficult to monitor if they wore the masks on board and then took them off. But this wasn't the case there were many who did not wear masks on to the bus, and even had conversations with the bus driver! Therefore it was extremely evident that they were not following the rules and yet they were never spoken to. My girlfriend and I are now worried, this tour took place one week before we see our families (many of whom are older or have pre-existing ailments) and now we are going to have to try somehow to get tested before seeing them because of this tour. Again, I wish I did not have to give this tour such a negative review as it was really fun....but having fun is not as much a priority as feeling safe, and we did not feel safe.

Hello Lane, Thanks for taking the time to write this review and sharing your feedback with other travelers and us. I'm sorry to hear that people on your tour did not wear masks all the time. We want to inform you that we take this topic very seriously, and in the past, we have refused to serve customers that were not willing to get on board wearing the mask. I'm thankful that you reached out to share your experience, as it will help me reinforce the communication with our team and customers. Xavier General Manager Gray Line San Francisco
