Highly Recommended
We are so glad we picked this for exploring Napa. Dean let us know he was on his way, arrived on time and told us all about the sights we were seeing along our dive and the history the area. He escorted us in to each winery and was ready and waiting when we returned. He made a great suggestion for our lunch. I would highly recommend this.
