Visiting Napa Valley is inspiring and touring Alcatraz Island is one of the most rewarding experiences when visiting California.
Enjoy a private and personalized tour itinerary, and go where you want to go. Visit caves and hidden wineries and dine in one of Napa Valley’s top dining establishments. Taste elegant red and white cultivars, including California fine champagne, or savor local olive oil and chocolate, topped off by a cheese tasting experience.
This new tour is not only reserved for wine lovers. California Wine Country is one of the world’s great tour and vacation destinations, not only for wine lovers but also for families with kids and for those who do not like wine. There’s plenty to do in the Napa Valley besides wine tasting. There are family-friendly wineries, fantastic food, and beautiful views, amazing attractions and sights, farmer’s markets, historic sites and cave tours are available for families with kids. You can also visit Sonoma Historic downtown, the Franciscan mission and Sonoma plaza —the birthplace of the California State Bear Flag. Take a complimentary tour of olive tasting at an elegant Tuscan olive oil press with delicious olive oils, or you can visit a local chocolate factory.
You may as well travel father north if you are not interested in wine tasting, and visit Napa Valley Old Faithful Geyser and goat farm, where you can learn about Californian geology while watching spectacular natural eruptions of this hidden geyser in Calistoga.
Tips and recommendations: We recommend limiting yourself to two wineries of your choice or let your tour guide help you choose the wineries in Sonoma Valley or southern Napa Valley, so that you don’t spend your valuable time in the vehicle driving to wineries. The distance between the south and north of Napa can take an hour or more, so why not rather spend quality time in the winery of your choice, such as in the Corners wine region (the closest to San Francisco to save you time), the only wine region that extends into both Napa and Sonoma Valleys. It is influenced by the cooling effect of the Pacific Ocean and a combination of summer fog, warm days, and a long growing season with unique characteristics based on climate and on its geographic features – the Pacific Ocean, the Coast Mountain Ranges and the San Francisco Bay – that affects the region’s terroir and put a distinctive stamp on its grapes.
You will find top country wineries and grape varieties in this wine region, including their signature wines like Chardonnays, Pino Noir, but also Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Champagne and many more.
Wine tasting and meals are not included in this tour price. We recommend going to wineries of your choice and cover the required wine tasting fees. However, if you are on a budget, and want to go to a regular versus an elegant or trending winery, our tour guides know some great wineries where your wine tasting fees may be waived, and you can also enjoy a complimentary cheese and olive oil tasting.BOOK NOW

Our Napa and Alcatraz combo tour ends here as tour guides are not allowed to guide or escort customers to Alcatraz Island.

This policy applies on all refunds as well, regardless of the amount or the date of the refund.

After we receive your transaction, the tour can be approved or declined based on availability of Alcatraz tickets issued by Alcatraz.

Other terms and information
Online Reservation and Transactions
What happens after we void or refund a transaction? Approved transactions: When transactions are processed on our website, and approved by your bank, it still takes about 7 to 10 business days before we even get the required funds transferred to our business merchant bank account. However, we still honor your tour(s) as scheduled if your transaction is approved, even if the tour is scheduled for the next day, as long as the tour is available. We are committed to provide high quality services and tours to our customers.
Voided and refunded transactions: When a transaction is voided, or refunded, the charge is removed from the authorized transaction inquiry and never batched or settled because the funds never leaves customers’ bank account. However, all such transactions will still show on customers’ bank statement as “pending” for up to 7 to 10 business days because the funds are temporarily frozen by your own bank without leaving your account. Please take this aspect into consideration before you follow up with us.
To release the funds, you will need to contact your bank and handle this directly with them as this has nothing do with us.
Common mistakes and misconception about voided transactions: Most customers do not realize or understand their own bank’s policy and guidelines regarding online purchases. The main issue is that the funds from the voided charge will be inaccessible to the client for a full 10 business days. For that reason, clients often think that the charge was still placed on their credit card, but in reality, it has never left their bank account and will be available only after 10 business days. In other words, voiding a credit card transaction will not remove the charge from customer’s bank account immediately, please be patient before you follow up with us or your bank in this regard. Banks usually take 7 to 10 business days to release these funds back to your account, and this is totally beyond our control and has nothing to do with us.
Declined transactions. Why your reservation was declined? When a reservation is declined by client’s own bank, this is often due to a mismatch between customer’s bank information (such as the name on the credit card, card number, expiration date, CVV, zip/postal code or billing address). If any one of these verification factors don’t match the information you provided on our website, comparing to the bank information when placed your order, your transaction is automatically declined by your own bank to protect your bank information from fraud. Sometimes, transactions are also declined due to insufficient funds as well. Your tour(s) will not be confirmed until your new transaction is approved by your own bank. We apologize for the inconvenience but your own bank did so to prevent fraud and protect your credit card information.
Tip: Most credit card companies including Amex now require from their clients to inform them in advance when making purchase online or out of town / state, otherwise they decline the transaction to prevent fraud. You may also get an email or text message alert asking you to approve or decline the transaction that has been declined before you resubmit it online, this is out of our hands and it’s indeed required by many credit cards companies for customers’ own good.
-All our tours including Alcatraz are subject to availability even if the online transaction is approved. We do reserve the right to void or refund your transaction when Alcatraz tickets are sold out. This is totally out of our hands as the only provider of Alcatraz tickets and tours are governed by the U.S. National Park Service.
-We do require at least 2 months in advance when booking our Alcatraz tour during the peaks season, holidays and week-ends, sometimes even more, specially from May to October. The peak season refers to the period of April to the end of October.
-We reserve the right to offer you alternative tours when Alcatraz tickets are sold out. If you decline our offer, we will fully refund your transaction – a process which takes about 10 business days before your funds are available to you. This is stated on our terms and conditions page, available in all languages, or you may use google translator.
By signing or checking this box “terms & conditions” on our website, you do hereby agree with all the above terms and policies and the tour voucher terms, which we will send to you via email after your tour confirmation.
