Dog-Friendly Wine Tours
- LisaMore than a year agothe best possible Napa experience we could have asked for
We scheduled a wine tasting adventure with Dan on Mother’s Day and could not have been happier with our experience. Dan is amazing and from the time he picked us up (he was early) until the moment he dropped us off (we kept him longer than expected) we were happy and relaxed. Dan is super knowledgeable about wine and the area, he is a safe driver and very accommodating. There were 4 humans and one big Golden Retriever on our adventure and we were all very comfortable in his van even after several wine purchases. Dan helped plan our day and we felt like we had an industry insider taking us on a VIP tour. We will all definitely be calling Dan again for another Napa adventure.

This was the highlight of my trip. I had never been wine tasting and it was the first time I was traveling with my dog (1.5 year old lab) so I really wasn't sure what to expect but Dan is the man! He was so casual about everything which is just what we like. He took us to four different dog friendly wineries and even gave us a behind the scenes tour at one of them (he use to work there). Very intelligent and interesting guy who has been all over the world working as an animal behaviorist and who also knows his wine. Would definitely go back again. Thanks Dan

My first time here in the Napa Valley. Travel on my own with dog. Dan is just the BEST!
He picked us up at the RV Park I'm staying and drove us to dog friendly wineries. I did not really know, how it works, but after the first two tasting rooms, the wine already went to my head. He stopped at a delightful deli store, so I could get my own sandwich, as he had one with him. From there, he heard me saying, that I enjoy so much the landscape and not having to drive, so he took me up the hill, overlooking the entire Valley!! What a treat!!!
With this view, we enjoyed our sandwiches and had great conversations about many different subjects. Dan didn't just picke me up from my resort, but also for what I really wanted. One more wine tasting in a very little, delightful winery, Duch Henry, and I had the 4 best hours ever on my almos 4 thousand Mile trip!!!
Every penny worth it!! Would only recommend!!Thank you Dan!

Dan is a pleasure to deal with, we took the wine tour last Saturday 5/2/15 and it was the best 6 hours of our 8 day trip across the US.
Dan is punctual and very knowledgeable of the area; if you are looking for that small family owned vineyard with AMAZING wine, he is the one to talk to.
Five stars to Dan.
Needless to say, our Scottish Terrier (Gilmour) was in the best hands with Dan throughout our wine extravaganza.
- CarrieMore than a year agoAmazing Tour!!
We called Dan last minute to schedule a tour (he does minimum 4hr tours) and he was thankfully available. He picked us and our two large dogs up in a spacious van and we were on our way. He asked my preference in wine (i.e. Red, White, Sweet, Dry) and I told him my favorite was Cabs, he made sure we stopped at good spots known for their Cabs. We stopped at 6 different wineries all of which were VERY dog friendly and had AMAZING wine. He was very knowledgeable about the winery industry, so along the way he answered any questions we had on the area. At the first stop he saw that my dogs were a little rusty in "heeling" ;) so he offered a few suggestions and within 10m they were like knew dogs. It was fantastic to then enjoy the rest of our vacation with heeling dogs! :) He even brought tennis balls and water for our dogs and offered to stay with the dogs to let us taste on our own or come in with the dogs or let us go in with the dogs alone, he was very accommodating. We felt very special to have a private tour with a guide that knew personally a lot of people along the way ;) My last plug for Dan is the price, comparing his prices with all other private tours in Napa he was actually cheaper! AND you could bring your dogs, what more could you ask for! I was very happy with our day and it was definitely the highlight of the trip :)
