Hire a Driver or Book a Tour | Local Wally's Napa Tourist Guide

NEW! Hire a driver or do a tour to see the BEST of Napa without driving your car and no DUI. Local Wally stamps his approval on Napa's best tour guides.

Getting around Napa When Wine Tasting

Platypus Tours Napa Sonoma

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.
