The Napa Valley wine tour with our driver, Mary, was excellent. I was very impressed with her knowledge, her calm attitude, and her bilingual (German) lecture. However, two women from Guadalajara spoke loudly in Spanish throughout the morning, with no regard for others in the bus, and Mary had to speak over them. When she finally requested that they respect the rest of us, they became very belligerent. This was the part that impressed me: she did not let these angry Mexicans bother her. I wanted to punch them myself!.

The buses are small, and the crowd therefore gets to know each other and enjoy the day together. We ate lunch in Sonoma at the Swiss hotel, a very hearty one. The tasting and tour at Domaine Chandon, a champagne winery in Napa, was the best.

It was interesting to consider that a good part of a great wine tour depends on the driver - but also, that the other customers are not very rude as the Mexicans were.

Don't waste your time and money-employees, especially the driver-SHE WAS VERY RUDE. I will never forget how bad the driver treated us. I work in the travel industry for 33years now and I've been around the globe so I know what I'm talking about. I cannot believe that right in my own backyard, this kind of company still exist-no wonder the economy is such in bad shape.

Don't waste your vacation time or money. We did not enjoy this at all. 9 hours and only visited 3 wineries. The driver, although knowledgeable about the vineyards, was a bad driver. I got motion sickness from riding with her which is unusual for me. We went to the vineyards where she wanted to go (one gives a free bottle of wine to tour guides) not necessarily the ones that suited our group the best.

I've been on tons of tours all over and the city tour of San Francisco with Judith was the best I've ever been on, truly unbelievable. Judith has this amazing love affair with the city; she is incredibly knowledgeable about its history and knows all of the neighborhoods. Judith is warm and friendly and encourages suggestions for stops by the passengers.My husband and I have been to the city dozens of times but Judith took us to neighborhoods that we had never been to and pointed out things we might have missed had she not shared them. She's also a fabulous driver, masterful really. I would go on a tour anywhere with her!

I searched and searched for what I was hoping to be the perfect wine country tour. The only appeal to this tour was that it was only a 13 passenger shuttle.. I figured smaller was better? Wrong. Tour guide "Jordy" didn't have much of a personality.. acted as if he hadn't had a day offf in a long time, and just seemed to be "bothered" and was simply going through the motions, without much enthusiasm. We only went to 3 wineries and other tours offered 5-6 winery stops. We thought wine country was very pretty, but would have used a different tour company and we recommend you choose another company.

I usually don't write reviews, but this was worth letting others know about. The Great Pacific Tour was the worst city tour I have ever been on. The tour guide did not provide much information at all. We drove around the city for 3 hours and he drove very fast like he was in a hurry to get the tour over with. We passed some of the landmarks and they were not even pointed out. One of the people on the tour asked if we were going to go to the Knob Hill area. In a very curt voice the tour guide said we already did. The problem was he did not tell us it was Knob Hill when we were on it. I was very disappointed with the whole tour. And it wasn't cheap

I really enjoyed our city tour with the Great Pacific Tour Company. The tour was in a 13 passenger minibus. The ride was comfortable and the views tremendous. They covered all the main sites of the city including a ride over the Golden Gate Bridge. The driver was very friendly and even took our picture for us. I highly recommend this companay.
