Gwendolyn planned a perfect day for me and my partner when we visited Napa – I honestly couldn’t fault it! We visited an incredible range of vineyards and a few hidden spots that only a true local would be able to find. She knows, and clearly loves, the area so well and will make you fall in love with it too. We were having so much fun we totally forgot to stop for lunch! I can’t recommend Gwendolyn highly enough – I dream of going back for another visit!

Exactly the type of person you want to spend the day with! We loved our Napa Valley wine tour! And thank you for the dinner recommendation! Just perfect!

My husband and I had only one full day in Napa and wanted to get the most out of it. Luckily we found Gwendolyn! Before our trip, she asked us some questions and created an itinerary based on our wine preferences. We loved our personalized tour, especially the small boutique wineries we never would have found on our own. She also arranged a lovely garden lunch with the most delicious butternut squash pizza! I highly recommend Gwendolyn. She’s incredibly helpful, knowledgable and friendly. And a safe driver!

I am the daughter of Gwendolyn, so I am biased it’s true. I am 36-years old and I just had one of her tours with one of my girlfriends and it was so perfect I demanded I get to write a review. There are plenty of reviews about her incredible service, her famous itineraries and how awesome she is, so I wanted to instead talk about how much my mom loves to do this. My Mom was a top event planner all over the west coast for twenty years before retiring to do this. Why? Because this is my Mom’s dream job and she takes such joy and pride in giving every single guest their best Napa experience. From casual folks to the luxury seekers, she is always telling me how much she adores her guests and how she loves to surprise them with her knowledge and Napa secrets. I don’t think there is anything better than being served by someone who loves their job and company this much. I wish everyone loved their work as much she does. You are in loving care with my Mom. She raised four kids and drove us around our whole adolescence which leads me to the hilarious thing she told me recently, “You know, sometimes people get really relaxed or they’re jet lagged and they just fall asleep in the back of the car and it reminds me of driving you all around when you were little. My sleeping babies.” I am still laughing. She’s the best, and I know you will agree.

Beautiful soul. I genuinely adored our conversation and the carefully thought out tour. I feel blessed to have spent the day with you.

Absolutely the best day in Napa! Gwendolyn was like visiting a cousin who knows all the in spots! My sister, daughters and I, had a blast! And we have a new friend. Already booked her again for my anniversary in 2018.

Highly recommend. She picked us up from our Hotel in San Francisco. Drove us over the Golden Gate Bridge, to a brilliant view of the city, for pictures. We spent the day in Napa seeing much more than we expected. We went well over the allotted time. She even made dinner reservations for us in San Francisco and dropped us off at the restaurant in time for dinner. Thank you for the gift bag.

Amazing service! Reserving Gwendolyn’s services the first day in town was one of the best things we did while in Napa. We asked for a tour that would give us a general overview of the area, so we would be able to go out on our own the following four days. We feel like we really made the most of our trip thanks to her!

A couple of years ago I went on one of those ‘herd them up’ cattle bus tours, no thanks! Gwendolyn’s tour is the best of the Napa Valley wine tours! The only way to go! Thanks for the great pictures of my girl and me.

Great tour! Great fun! Told my parents to get Gwendolyn next year when they visit.

My girlfriend and I recently went on a wine tour with Gwendolyn from Napa Valley Wine Tours. Her service was sensational. She hand-tailored our winery picks to each of our preferences, and gave us options to select from based upon that in our custom itineraries. The short ride in between each winery was filled with extensive knowledge on Napa. She gave us multiple restaurant suggestions during our stay there, and was constantly making our enjoyment a top priority. If you want to feel like royalty in Napa – definitely take a tour with Gwendolyn!

I am beyond pleased we hired Gwendolyn as our tour hostess! I loved how personalized the service was. Before we booked, she and I had a chat on the phone so she could get a feel for what my boyfriend and I wanted for the day. We only knew of one winery we really wanted to go to, so Gwendolyn did the rest. We LOVED everything she recommended! This is the only way I would do Napa.
