Harry drove us for a day of wine tasting in Livermore, and we had a very good experience. He was prompt, polite, professional and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend him!
Champie took me and my boyfriend wine tasting for the day and we had a fantastic time! He was very prompt, flexible and knowledgeable. He had good tips and suggestions and was even able to get us a discount at one place. I would definitely recommend him!
I can not give enough praise for the service we received from Bellagio limousine. From the start,I was greeted by a professional over the phone who made my reservations flawlessly per my request followed up by an quick email confirmation. Bellagio offered a fabulous service , we were all very pleased. Our limo showed up 25 minutes early and it was in pristine condition Driver was very courteous and professional.Their rate was lower than other companies we had called. And we got more bang for our buck. Free bar, with iced champagne wine,whiskey vodka soda coffee oj beer water ipod bluetooth stereo connection . and a driver who knew Napa wineries in his sleep.I tell you it could not get better than this. Driver Michael took us to some awesome wineries, we did a wine tour a cave tour by appointment and the wine was delicious. After each stop on our wine tasting tour, the limo was restocked with fresh glasses, vacuumed, and our driver was helpful with any requests that we threw at him.. We made all of reservations on time and returned home safe and sound. We also loved the food at Trancas Steak house. Superb day of pleasure and relaxation. I highly recommend this company and we will use them again. Our group was beyond impressed!
My girlfriends and I decided to go to Napa for a bachelorette party! What a blast!!! The driver at GR8 transportation picked us at the wharf in San Fran and took us to Napa for the day. The driver was able to reccomend a few of his favorite wineries and they were fantastic! He walked us in and was there waiting for us after all of our tastings. He also took us to Gott's for lunch and what a great spot! I am impressed with the service and quality of this company and would use them again in a heartbeat ! Thanks for a memorable first trip to the wine country in your beautiful shuttle!
Ricardo, our chauffeur, was excellent during our wine tasting tour. Patient, warm, considerate and punctual. He gave my group 5-star treatment the whole day. Because of him I would recommend Alpha Limo in a heart-beat. Thanks for a memorable day.
ESO Tours was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Professional and efficient. I highly recommend ESO Tours for your wine country transportation needs.
My friends and I went to Cosmin for a little San Francisco wine tasting experience and we were blown away by his hospitality and knowledge. With every wine we tasted, Cosmin explained it's history, characteristics and distinct flavors. We went on a delicious journey around the world, learning how to distinguish the grape, region, flavor and age. This was by far the most unique and pleasant wine tastings I have ever experienced. Who knew you could taste wine in so many different ways? Cosmin's passion and attention to detail added to the experience. I would 100% go back again for another round. 10/10!
Kim was very polite and willing set up tasting times for us when the winery required an appointment. She knew her way around and where to find the quaint and delicious locations to have lunch. We would definitely hire her again!
Adria's attention to detail, stellar pairing of wine and food and ability to connect with her clients make her one of the best! Adria has a vast knowledge of local venues, previously worked as a Sommelier and coast to coast connections ensure you'll throw the best events. Adria makes it looks effortless but know planning and logistics is not an easy feat. Book her now!
Great food and bartender had a wine tasting last month I plan to hire Micael again
Martin is awesome! My fiance and I hired Martin for some personal in-home wine classes and we've continued to ask him to come back week after week. Each week, he comes with 4 bottles from a pre-established country/region. He puts together short "worksheets" about the wines that we'll be tasting, why they might taste the way they do based on regions they come from, and random other little tidbits about the history of winemaking in that area, the industry as a whole, etc. He also creates little tasing "maps" which each of our four glasses sit on as we go move through the different glasses. He brings a world of knowledge to the table, keeps it interesting, and has been a great teacher of wine. He'll call out certain aromas or notes to look for in the wine, then we'll taste and talk about it. He asks questions, makes us think, and overall provides an awesome wine tasting experience! At the end, we keep the 4 bottles that he brought! Highly recommend for a date night, company affair, or any type of group outing.
Aram was AMAZING!! He MADE the party!! I hired Aram to teach 10 of my friends all about wine!! How to smell, taste, and enjoy it!! We had so much fun and learned so much. All my guest loved it as it wasn't your usual brunch.
Can't say enough about A&W Transport! These guys are such a hidden gem when it comes to transportation from SF to the Napa Valley. We planned a last-minute girls' wine tasting trip and were so glad to find them just a few days before. I booked the trip through Nicholas at such a great rate and then met his brother Michael Saturday morning. He was punctual, friendly, and very accommodating, making multiple stops to pick up the girls along the way. The SUV was clean and comfy, and the chilled champagne definitely started the day off right! We only had a vague idea of the wineries we wanted to visit, so Michael suggested an itinerary to make it work, and (thankfully) added in a delicious lunch stop! He put up with a reasonably rowdy crowd by the mid-afternoon and was kind enough to take photos, make a few bathroom stops, and get us back to SF in one piece. I will absolutely use A&W on all future trips to Napa and will definitely keep them in mind for rides to the airport or longer ventures to Monterey or Tahoe. It's great to find a family-run business with the poise and professionalism of a corporation at the price of a Mom & Pop!
Buzz is truly the ideal person to have drive and lead you and your family or friends around Napa and Sonoma. He went far above and beyond with my wife and I, creating the perfect day and night for us, and helping ensure we maximized our time while enjoying our holiday. Buzz is safe, knowledgeable, personalized and professional, and is well-worth his fair pricing. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a solid driver and guide in wine country, and we plan on using him from now on every time we visit.
Michael did a great job teaching me about the wine making process and helping me to learn how to idenitfy the types of wine that I like best. He taught me about the various aromas and tasting notes and I feel more prepared than ever to walk into a high end wine shop and easily pick out something I know I'll like! Thanks Michael for turning this wine novice into a wanna be wine snob!
Catherine organized a special Champagne tasting event at my home for friends. She was highly professional, enthusiastic, complete and responsive at all times and we had an amazing time. She chose fantastic wines, suggested pairings and provided detailed tasting notes. She did an excellent presentation and I would certainly use her again. It was a great event and will certainly have a sequel. Everyone enjoyed the entire evening and are still talking about it.
