ABOUT THE OPEN TOP SPRINTER TO NAPA Valley Tour from San Francisco


This Open Top Tour is designed to be the best sightseeing tour experience in America. There is no more beautiful place to have an open top experience, with the wind flowing just above your head, but not in your face, than in Napa Valley. Our goal is to show you Napa Valley, taste some great wines and stop at other iconic wineries for picture stops. We will also enjoy a Picnic Lunch, and a Ferry Bay Cruise to end the tour. To pile on: It’s a small group tour as well. The Roof can close, at will, so for the freeway ride up, there will be a glass roof over your head and once we get into Napa at slower speeds we open up the roof to enjoy the majestic views.

SF Ferry Building - Napa Bus Tours from San Francisco

The Ferry Building

You just finished an amazing day in Napa Valley after getting off of a Ferry Boat, now what is this amazing place? It’s home to San Francisco’s famous indoor marketplace. Grab some oysters at Hogg Island Oysters or grab a seat and get dinner at San Francisco’s Top Restaurant, The Slanted Door, or just walk around and get some bread, cheese or find an Italian Restaurant or even just a hamburger.


Barrel Tasting Experience

Barrel tasting is now offered on this wine tour!

For red wines, controlled oxidation takes place during barrel aging. This very gradual oxidation results in decreased astringency and increased color and stability. It also evolves the fruit aromas to more complex ones.

Experience the fresh fruity-taste of wines straight from a barrel.

Ferry Cruise – Perfect way to end the day –

It’s not just any Napa Wine Tour from San Francisco. On this tour you will take a ferry cruise from Napa Valley back to San Francisco as the sun begins to set. You can go outside or inside the boat during this 40-minute calm boat cruise across the bay back to the Ferry Building.

This ferry cruise is key because it completely avoids bad traffic back to San Francisco. From the Ferry/Bay Cruise you will get close to Alcatraz, the Bay Bridge, the city of San Francisco, as well as the Golden Gate Bridge from a short distance away. Thus, during the Ferry/Bay Cruise portion of your wine country tour, it will be at this point, you will know you made the right choice!
