Getting around Napa When Wine Tasting
Hiring Napa Tours, Trolleys, and Drivers
Sorry to be a buzz killer but it's easy to over indulge when wine tasting in Napa. Sure, it's true that nearly everyone on the road seems to be coming from a winery and no, I have yet to see a DUI checkpoint, but for those who want to taste it all without worrying about trading that spa resort for the county jail should consider hiring a driver or going with a tour group.
The best drivers do more than just haul you around. They can offer fun and insights that you don't get if you were on your own while still taking you to the wineries you pick. Or go on a group tour where you'll jump on the bus like a 6th grade field trip where goofing off is allowed.
TIP: For those looking for special attention and VIP treatment, ask about the Priority Wine Pass Insider's Tour, an exclusive offer to my readers to spend an insiders day with Jamie, the owner of the company. Email Jamie for more info.

Drivers who Drive Your Own Car - Including Rentals
Professional drivers do more than get you around Napa. They become your personal tour guide, giving you tips and inside info on the wineries. Use one of the drivers who offer discounts with the Wine Pass and they will take you to the wineries who offer two for one discounts, a big way to stretch your Napa wine tasting budget. Note: If licensing and insurance are a concern to you please work directly with the drivers.
Napa Valley Tour Groups - Jump in their Shuttles and Go
Join a small group and let the tour company take you around Napa and Sonoma. There's no need to pick wineries, no pre-planning, just hop in and before you know it you're wine tasting. Entertaining and fun, even the most shy in your group will be loving their new wine tasting friends by the end of the day. My favorite? Platypus Tours - tell them Local Wally sent you for VIP treatment!
Budget Napa Wine Tasting Without a Car or Driver
Can't afford a tour or personal driver? Then do Local Wally's Napa Walking and Tasting Agenda, a great way to sample lots of wine without ever getting in your car. Simply start your day in the south end of Yountville and walk the "Mile of Wineries", stopping in a the many boutique wineries along the way. It's a lovely way to see and experience Napa whether you're a first timer or experienced visitor and a great way to taste a lot of Napa's finest wines without having to worry about a driving.
Limos and Companies that Drive You Around in Their Vehicles
Bachelorette parties, big groups, corporate events, hire a company who will pick you up and take you around Napa. If you need a company to pick you up at the airport and take care of all of the details, go with one of these options.
