Vehicle arrived promptly, vehicle was clean and comfortable. Driver was friendly and knowledgeable. What I liked best about this private tour was the flexibility. We told him what we were thinking, and he helped plan our itinerary for the day. We could change things as we went along, we could be spontaneous . We absolutely loved the day, and we... More

We just returned from a trip to Sonoma and hired Amicis tours for a day. This was one of the best vacation decisions we have made. First, while it sounds simple, Ralph was right on time (actually early) and came prepared with suggestions. Our day was headed in the right direction and never veered off course. Each winery was selected... More

Ralph is extraordinarily knowledgeable about wine in general, the region overall, and individual vineyards in specific. If you mention a vineyard, he's got a story about what was on the land before that vineyard, the current owner, and likely the current owner's cat. It seems like every vineyard we walked into, he was greeted as a friend and regular. This... More

We heard that this was a wonderful wine tour and we were not disappointed. Ralph and his wife, Lani, run the operation. We booked with Laniand she was so helpful and fun to speak with as we set the tour up. Book many months in advance if you are coming peak season. We booked in May and there was only... More

My husband and I enjoyed our first vacation to wine country this September. We stayed at MacArthur Place in Sonoma (wonderful), whose concierge helped us determine the best wine tour for our likes. We are not serious wine drinkers and only enjoy whites (certainly the minority in wine country). The thought of having a private tour was a bit intimidating... More

My husband and I had 2 days with Ralph from Amicis Tours and every minute was outstanding. His local knowledge and wine knowledge was superb and made the trip very special. After a few hours he keyed in to the wines that we liked and suggested wineries that will no doubt become favorites over time. His knowledge and useful information... More

Thank you for the kind words. Ralph really has a gift for matching guests to the wine and the experience they will enjoy most. That's why each tour is custom, tailored to your personal taste. Our guests become our friends, so truly 'Amicis'. Ralph says you both were a delight to share Napa with and he looks forward to your... More

The management response, posted on 5 June 2013, is shocking. 1. The last email sent to management was a clarification email less than an hour after, on 18 May 2013 which stated: “Sorry [name of Amicis representative] I just realised I made a mistake.

For international travellers travelling to Napa, particularly those from say Australia or AsiaPac, it is crucial that service providers are able to give clear and prompt responses via email, in light of the time difference. In this regard, I was sorely disappointed with Amicis. I had contacted Amicis because 1. they had a comprehensive website and appeared to be client... More
