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.

to do more than just business - museums, top quality

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.

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
