Name:JDeL Tim & Gina, Allie & Phil Email: Please enter a review Raoul, It’s taken a while to write this review, but simply because it was hard to put into words just how special our experience was with Raoul… We came to Napa not knowing what to expect, but thanks to a wonderful family recommendation, what we found was a friendship with grapes and man…Named Raoul. With two legendary couples in tow, all partners in crime, we stole a lot from our time with you. We thought we had an itinerary, for which we did, but rather than showing us the jewels for which we had picked, you lead us to those most magnificent diamonds in the rough. Yes, Napa was what we thought it would be, but without the guidance of a seasoned veteran of the valley we would not have experienced the magic quite as intensely. If you’re looking for more than just a driver, if you are looking for an EXPERIENCE, then call Raoul, he goes more than that extra mile for you, he goes above and beyond. Napa was spectacular, the wine was divine, but by far the best part of our voyage was Raoul. Thank you Raoul, thank you so much. We will definitely be calling you the next time we’re in town!  Comments Best way to experience this most special place. Thank you Raoul!!! you ROCK!

​I'm here to tell you, I truly have as much fun as they do, well almost!

Being our first time in the Napa valley, we decided to spend the extra money to do the private wine tour. We went with NapaSonomaWineGuy based on all the great reviews on tripadvisor and we were definitely not disappointed. Raoul, with Pare Tours was great. He emailed us our appointments ahead of time. We had our own rental car, but the driver did all of the driving and navigating, which is so much safer when you have a long day of wine tasting. Our driver/tour guide was Raoul. He is one of the newer staff with Pare Tour, but he was very knowledgeable about the area and wineries. He picked us promptly at our hotel. At first, I thought it would be awkward driving around all day in the car with a stranger, but Raoul was great company!. He was very professional, attentive and added to the the information we were given at each of the wineries. He would introduce us the the winery staff at each appointment and waited outside patiently, and showed up promptly after we were finished with the tastings to take us to our next destination. Raoul gave a great recommendation on lunch on our first day. He was able to gauge what we enjoyed and the types of wines we liked, and was flexible enough to make last minute adjustments to our appointments. On day two, we trusted Raoul to modify our itinerary, and we were not disappointed. The wineries we enjoyed the most were the smaller, less popular ones that Raoul had recommended. We appreciated his honest and unbiased opinion throughout the trip. Besides the wines, Raoul was the best part of our trip. Great job Raoul and team Pare Tour! I am already recommending this to my friends.

It was so much fun that a return visit is already planned.

​I'm looking forward to the review of my three day tour with these four new friends. We had a blast!

Name:Shauna Please enter a review We went on a short wine tour with Raoul and were SO impressed with where he took us. When we set up the reservation, he asked us our wine preferences and built a custom tour based on what we wanted! I didn't want to go to wineries that I could purchase their product at a grocery store. Raoul over-delivered! We only had a short time, but we visited two incredible wineries and were able to talk with the winemakers themselves, barrel taste, and learn a ton about Napa wine. It was a phenomenal experience, worth every dime, and I can't wait to go back! Comments Phone 7149xxxx1 This message was submitted from your website contact form: 

​He had no fun! Does it show?

We used NapaSonomaWineGuy (Raoul's new company) in April for a two day tour. The itinerary was set by someone that we had engaged with via telephone, and luckily (for us) Raoul diplomatically steered us away from what would have been mediocre stops.

The woman that set the itinerary originally, works for the company that Raoul used to work for. She told Raoul "I don't know wine, I don't drink wine, and when wineries give me wine for booking the tours, I give it to my husband. He then gives it away to his clients." Yet SHE books ALL the itineraries for that company! No wonder Raoul went out on his own!

He knows his trade well because all of his picks were utterly fantasic experiences. Many stops included meeting the wine maker, the owner (sometimes one in the same). Always were the wines fabulous, but also the pricing of those wines was also a pleasant suprise. Raoul will tell you which wines to seriously consider and which wine clubs are the best to join too.

There is no doubt that his company is a keeper for our group as we will book with him in the future and send all of our friends to him also.

It might seem strange at first hiring someone to drive your rental car, but rest assured this is the best money we have ever spent in Napa. Raoul arranged for Tony to drive us on our tours. We left the planning to Raoul, and he left the fun to us. I can't recommend this service highly enough! Thank you Tony and Raoul for a wonderful day that me and my wife won't soon forget!

We used Napa Sonoma Wine AKAPareTour on April 1 and we highly recommend using this company on your Napa vacation. We had booked with another driving company but changed to NSWG based on their rates and the customer service when I called (Raoul was SO friendly and helpful.) We were so glad we switched. We had an amazing day with our driver Raoul! He had great suggestions and even squeezed in a stop at a smaller vineyard off the beaten path that my husband and I loved! He was so friendly and we really enjoyed our day with him. We will definitely recommend this company to    friends/family visiting Napa and they will be our first call next time we go back!

We recently visited Napa Valley with a group of 10 people. Raoul arranged a great day for our group with unique tours at small vineyards.  We had the opportunity to sit down with the winery owners and sample excellent wines with great food. The entire group was very impressed with the itinerary and the unique experiences.  We would definitely recommend his service and use his services in the future.
