My wife and I travel to Napa at least once a year to take in the Valley and great wine. We have used several different tour companies through the years and have varying results.

We had the good fortune of having Scott Shapin as our driver and tour guide. We couldn't have been any more pleased. He has a wealth of knowledge about the region, and a great attention to details that made our experience truly memorable. The company picked out four small-medium sized wineries to visit (based on our communication regarding wine preference),... More

We toured Spring Mountain Road with our driver Shawn. He is long term Napa valley, understands the wine industry and is a good conversationalist. Pick up at hotel was on schedule and a day in a Bentley was a treat. We scheduled for four winery stops plus lunch which would have had us out over six hours. After three visits... More

From Jim's one-on-one service to Shawn's driving the limo, you couldn't have asked for a more perfect day tour! We saw a great boutique winery that we would have never known about if it wasn't for them. Shawn was knowledgeable and friendly; Jim was responsive and patient. Both ensured that we had a great, and quality, time. I would CERTAINLY... More

If you are wanting a tour of some of the best winery's in Yountville and the surrounding area you need to call Jim Dolen with Magnum Tours. We were looking for the smaller boutique winery's with great wine. The tour he set up for us just blew us away. We had a great time, I can't wait to go back!

The service was absolutely fantastic. Our driver, Tom, is very knowledgable of the wine country and the wineries. He insured the winery knew we were there and ready to begin our tour and tasting. They provided a GREAT picnic platter of cheeses, fruits and meats at a very reasonable price. This would be my FIRST CHOICE of a tour service... More

We contacted Jim and booked a car for 2 days to explore Sonoma and Napa. He was awesome at booking the places we wanted to stop and suggesting a few others off the beaten path that we never would have known about otherwise. Our driver, Rolando, was super patient, personable & professional and we had a blast. Thank you, Jim!... More
