Napa Valley Wine Tours This Fall, by Ground or Air
While things may look a little different this fall in terms of group sizes and tour procedures, almost all Napa Valley wine-country tours are in all-systems-go mode. Here are some of the most highly regarded and varied Napa Valley wine tours.
- There’s no better way to take in the breathtaking beauty of Napa Valley wine country than by hot-air balloon, and there are a number of tour companies willing to take you. Typical of the handful of the airborne tour outfits is Napa Hot Air Adventure, which offers a four-hour ride over Napa Valley’s wineries between Napa and St. Helena.
- For whose who prefer to tour closer to terra firma, there’s the Napa Valley Wine Train (with service scheduled, as of this writing, to resume after Sept. 18). Offered in a number of packages depending on one’s lodging and pickup-point needs, the train provides a three-hour, 36-mile round trip between the downtowns of Napa and St. Helena, and takes in the awe-inspiring estates of more than 30 wineries.
- Another rail option is the Napa Valley Wine Trolley and its Open-Air Classic Tour, in which the wineries of Napa and points north can be observed from the seat of a classic California Cable Car, with stops for lunch and tastings amid views of subterranean caves, grand estates and cozy wine cellars.
- For an altogether different open-air experience, consider a Napa Valley wine tour — private or join-group — aboard a Jeep, African safari-style, from Safari West. Another way to go open-air for those who appreciate vintage cars with their wine vintages is to visit wineries via Classic Convertible Wine Tours.
- If you prefer to take your Napa Valley wine tours in the back of a luxury vehicle, there are a number of options available. Napa Valley Wine Country Tours, for example, offers a number of private and join-in tours, and its fleet include bus coaches, luxury SUVs and limousines depending on the size of your group, all tailored to your preferences. Plenty of well-regarded other companies provide this service too.
- Napa Valley’s breathtaking hilly vistas and flat stretches of picturesque farmlands are a perfect match for those who enjoy seeing the world from a bicycle. Whether you’ve brought your own bike or want to rent one, Napa Valley Bike Tours offers a wine-country experience for every desire — pedaled or electric wheels, multi-day or single-day outings, private group tours or with a gathering of soon-to-be friends.
- If you want a Napa Valley wine tour that pushes all your gastronomic pleasure buttons, consider a Wine and Dine Tour tailored to your preferences.
- Like the feel of the earth that nurtures the vines of Napa Vally wines beneath your feet? Wine Country Trekking offers a five-day, four-night group ramble that takes in the best of all things wine in the area, from St. Helena to Calistoga to Yountville to Napa, covering five to seven miles a day.
