Hi! I wanted to check and see if you are available for a private Napa/Sonoma wine tour for 2 on Friday, December 11th? I have a few other questions that I was not able to get the answers to from the amazing customer comments the have been left! -What kind of vehicle? -What is the cost? -We will be staying at the Le Meridian in SF (Downtown). Do you pick up/drop off from there? -Do you have wineries that you recommend or a prefixed tour? We would want to go to at least 3. -It would be great if there was a recommendation of lunch as well to incorporate with the tour. -If we wanted to go to Muir Woods along with the wine tour, how many hours do you think we would need? We want to be very relaxed and not rushed at all.What would be the cost with the added trip to Muir Woods? I look forward to your response and hope you are not already booked for the 11th! Thank you in advance! Happy Thanksgiving! Nicki Barn
