Dean was amazing and did a great job touring my grandparents around SF! They had nothing but rave reviews after their day with him, and thoroughly recommended him as a knowledgable and fun tour guide. There was some miscommunication on my part lining Dean up, and he was completely professional about addressing where the miscommunication was and worked with me to get it all sorted out. Definitely recommend him!!

We enjoyed a very memorable (and long anticipated) trip with our 'tween son to Italy: Positano, Naples (Pompeii and Herculaneum), Rome, the Cinque Terre, and Florence. Our travel agency helped make every day memorable, with boat trips and hikes when we were on the coast and the best art/architecture historians and archeologists when we were in Rome, Florence, and Naples. A real strength of this company is the contacts with excellent local guides/experts and drivers, which made our trip stress free and permitted us to use our time very efficiently.

Tour California and has been a great experience! My family and I took a trip to San Francisco and were looking to explore the famous Wine Country that all our friends speak so highly of. Umar arrived early in a nice, clean, well stocked black Mercedes van. We enjoyed an interesting, knowledge filled ride up to Napa and spent the entire day exploring and sampling what Napa had to offer. I would certainly recommend Tour California to anyone looking to get out of the hustle and bustle of San Francisco for the day or weekend and want to wind down a bit! Thanks Umar!

My grand-daughter and I had an wonderful adventure to India -- thanks to Teri. She set up an amazing itinerary, made all travel arrangements, and gave us good advice on how to plan and enjoy our trip. Our guides were well educated and knowledgeable natives of the areas we visited. They helped us learn the cultural and religious elements of the things we saw. I recommend her highly.

We were looking last minute for a private tour guide in SanFran for our family of 5. ( Three teenagers) We didn't want want a preset advertised tour that many tour companies offer. Michael was great - he tailored the tour request to our needs, and located us a guide quickly. He is prompt and efficient with organizing all details. There were no questions unanswered. Our tour guide Lorenzo spent the afternoon with us and was pleasant to have guide us around some of the sites in SF. This was a walking tour only, but we did use trollies. I would recommend working with Michael, and I'm sure any of his guides can accommodate your needs.

California Nature Tours knows how to get it right....the right amount of hiking, education, and thought provoking conversation is all in a days work for them and fun for me. I love getting out there with David, who certainly knows his stuff. I've had guided solo hikes with CNT, and in groups with friends. Either way is the great. David gears the day to the group's level of fitness and knowledge. I learn something new every time I enjoy the beautiful California outdoors with CNT!

I recently used your website to find a travel agent to help me plan an initerary to Australia and New Zealand. I am usually very capable of creating our itinerary/transportation/accomodations but found I was overwhelmed by the vastness and unknown of both Australia and New Zealand. Much to my dismay I decided I needed professional advice. Somehow, I found your website and decided to take a chance and call for advice. I was referred to Deborah Roberts, an Australia/New Zealand expert and talked quite a long time with her. Deborah had a vast knowledge of information and a great personality and I decided to see what she would come up with. I explained what my husband and I liked to do, gave her the length of time we had available to travel, and also told her of my hotel philosophy. You guys really understood and created an amazing itinerary for us that we barely modified. She understood the amount of time that each place needed and helped us plan from Queensland, Australia to Dunedin, New Zealand at the furthermost points of our itinerary. We decided to be adventurous and rented us a Maui campervan. We went tubing in Waitomo Caves, did a tour of Kangaroo Island, trekked the Milford Sound, and stayed at the Lodge at Larnach Castle on the Otago Peninsula. Deborah arranged all of that and more. I literally showed up with my voucher book and presented proof of prepayment for activities, transportation, and accomodations and everything was accepted without question. It was incredibly freeing to have her make all of the arrangements as I was working extremely long hours before we left for the trip. I will certainly recommend Travel Wizard to any of my friends who are traveling to Australasia and the South Pacific. She is definitely an expert and my husband and I really could not have done this trip without her help. Sincerely, --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Because of our activities in Real Estate with clients from out of town sometimes we need a helpful hand to take care of them. We take customer service very seriously at AMSI and our clients needs are paramount. Helga takes those expectations beyond the extra mile by providing knowledgeable tours into restaurants, musseums, parks and San Francisco point of interest. Our clients told us how detailed oriented she really is and that is why I recommend Helga and give to her 5 stars.

Ximena takes all the stress of travel planning right off my plate! I love it. She has done everything for me from book airline flights, train trips, and various styles of accommodations. She has also created fun travel itineraries so that all I have to do is wake up and go! Whatever I asked of Ximena she provided, from self guided walking tours to dinner reservations. She knows my style and makes sure to include some local history and flavor in my travel plans. I love to travel! I don't have lots of time to research and plan. It makes the whole experience so much easier and relaxing when someone does the planning for you. I don't want to travel with groups, so this kind of service works perfectly for me. I will always use Ximena's services to plan my trips. She is friendly, courteous, and delivers on time. Ximena has a fun vibe that I enjoy and that shows in her itineraries. Give her your destination, your budget and let Ximena do the rest! Happy travels!

About

I am a professional driver and tour guide. With over 20 years of experience as a tour guide to the local area, Justin Perkins (the owner) is a native to the Napa Valley. He has more individual experience and knowledge than any other tour guides in Wine Country that we know of. In his youth, he began exploring the area in depth hiking and bicycling throughout the region. He soon began sharing the area with his friends and family. When he began work as a professional tour guide, he noted how other guides simply did not know the area as intimately as he did, including the owner of that company. However, this was also when he began learning about wine and visiting a larger variety of wineries than he had in the previous years. I am a professional tour guide with a class B commercial license, CPR and medical card. I have a school bus certificate, which means I passed an extensive background investigation. Plus, you will not find a more knowledgeable person of the area. This includes tours, hiking, views, history, kayaking, wineries, dining, and more. Unlike all the other tour guides I know, I grew up here and honestly know the in and outs of the area. Justin
