When I went to Napa the first time I did a bus tour too. I think it's a great way to go; less worries. The company I used was www.eventswest.us/transportation/san-jose-bus-charters.htm. They were very professional and can even do tours in other languages. It was very luxurious for a reasonable rate. Have fun!

My husband and I went on a tour the first two times we visited Napa Valley. It was very helpful to get an overview of the area and to feel comfortable with the wine tasting experience. There are a number of companies that offer tours and the one we used was the Napa Winery Shuttle. The web site is http://www.wineshuttle.com/reservations.html.
I highly recommend them - both times there were 3 other couples with us; both times everyone started off a little quiet; both times by the end of the second tasting we were all good friends and having a blast. We had two different drivers - both very knowledgeable and helpful. We went to 5 wineries each time and were able to buy a picnic lunch at V. Sattui each time. It was well worth it. Since you will have two days, perhaps doing the tour the first day would be good. Then the second day you could go back up the valley and visit a few more places. You will have a car? The town of St Helena has some fun, charming shops to wander through... there are plenty of fantastic places to eat lunch or dinner from Calistoga down to Napa (go to OpenTable.com, look at San Francisco, Wine Country to see lots of restaurants and they will link to the websites)... there are any number of wineries to visit that have remarkable views - the arial tram to Sterling comes to mind... I'm sure that y'all will thoroughly enjoy your visit and will plan to return often - it has that effect on people!

Another question ... how would you plan 2 days in Napa? I was thinking of spending one day in Napa and another further north, perhaps St. Helena or other areas.

What would you do?

My husband and I will be in Napa at the end of June. My husband wants to go on a tour. A get on a bus a go to a bunch of wineries type of tour. I'm more inclined to just go to wineries ourselves.

Any recomendations? Good tours? Or would you reccomend just "touring" the area yourself?
