“Great birthday celebration wine tour”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Our Beau wine tour bus experience was flawless. We hosted a party of ten and were provided a brand new Mercedes Sprinter van with champagne and water and iphone audio cables included! Our driver Donald was amazing. Not only was he very pleasant, but extremely knowledgable and helpful in planning our itinerary and accommodating the various needs if our group. We visited 4 vineyards and had a beautiful al fresco lunch in Healdsburg. The van and Donald were perfect and I'd do this again for another large group. It was well worth it, and made our day perfect.

“Absolutely brilliant!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

This was a perfect day from start to finish. Our driver (Jay) picked us up from our B&B and went on to collect another couple nearby.
Throughout the day we visited 4 wineries, each of which were equally as good as the last. We took part in the tasting in each one and made some purchases.
Jay answered any questions that we had and was very pleasant. He supplied a delicious lunch which we ate at the third winery.
By the end of the day we were ready for bed!!
Would highly recommend.

“Dissapponting”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Used Beau on for an 8 person tour and the problems started before the tour began. When I booked I asked for someone to call to give me some ideas for the outing. They said that this was a group outing and would be passed on to their concierge service. No one called for a few days so I sent an email asking for a follow up. Nothing. Another email. Nothing. The day before I got a voicemail from the driver and when i called back he assured me that everything would be great as it was a slow Monday so they'd be flexible to give us some tours. Very first winery and the person at the front says to me "you're a group...you should of called ahead". This was the exact thing i wanted to avoid. So we wait around while on the clock to do a tasting. Went to other wineries and all in all had an ok time. But for the 500 dollars they charge for the afternoon it's a complete rip off. There's no value-add. I eventually called and said I had been underwhelmed with the experience. They initially responded ASAP and seemed interested with what happened. They even mentioned some potential rebate. After a few more emails between us they said they'd start an incident report. That was 4 days ago...seems like they've forgotten about me again. My advice to anyone is to a little research online and then rent a taxi if you're going to be drinking too much drive. Their website mentions some about providing exclusive access to wineries and memorabl

Dear Happytraveller9973,

We are very sorry to hear about your experience with Beau Wine Tours, and that there was poor communication on our end that caused you to have a less than wonderful time on your wine tour. It seems that that we did drop the ball with regard to the planning of your itinerary, and giving the wineries the proper heads up of your arrival. We are very interested in resolving this with you, and we haven't forgotten about you. It is very important to us to make sure that we make this right for you. We do have some different managers here with different days off that have caused what seems like a lag in getting back to you with a resolution. Please know we are still looking into this matter and we will be contacting you ASAP to discuss what we can do to make this right for you.

Sincerely,

Thomas Buck

“Great way to see the wine country.”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We had a great time with Beau Wine Tours. Our driver, Keith, was right on time and couldn't have been more pleasant or informative. Our car was new and very clean. We had informed BWT in advance of a couple of tours and private tastings we had scheduled for the day and Keith had planned our drive times from one to the next perfectly. In addition to getting us where we needed to be he also showed us a few hidden treasures and brought us to an excellent deli for lunch. I highly recommend using BWT for their professionalism and also because it is a safe way to visit a number of wineries without needing to drive. Enjoy yourself and let Beau Wine Tours show you around and do the driving.

“First Class All the Way”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Ourselves and another couple used Beau Wine Tours to tour several Napa Wineries. The experience was top notch all the way. Our driver Richard arrived early so that we could keep to our itinerary. Champagne, water and soft drinks awaited as we embarked on our trip. The driver made a lunch recommendation in Yountville which was outstanding. He was helpful and informative while respecting our privacy and the Limo was clean and comfortable. My only complaint is I am a pre- pre planner and wanted to solidify our wineries and wine reservations far in advance. Although we booked several months out, we did not hear back from Beau until 2 days before our tour. We were well into our vacation and this timing was a bit inconvenient but it all worked out in the end.
