Questions & Answers

Why should we choose Eclectic Tour?

We are specifically a Wine Tour company. We are passionate about our relationships with our clients, as well as our friendships with winery owners and winemakers. Our extensive knowledge about the region and our commitment to providing the best possible service are paramount to the success of your unique experience. As owners of Eclectic Tour, we can say with all confidence that we provide the best service in the Wine Country!

We've never been to the Wine Country before, can you plan our tour for us?

Yes! Each tour is customized to meet the needs of your individual group. We will start by asking you some specific questions, such as the types of wine you like, whether you have any particular wineries you’d like to see, are you visiting purely for the pleasure of tasting or are you collecting wine and if you are a 1st time visitor or an experienced Wine Country traveler. We will use the information you give us to plan your unique experience.

What wine regions do you tour?

Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, Alexander Valley, Russian River and Dry Creek are the most popular.

What are your tour rates?

Because each tour is unique, your pick up location and the number of hours you request will determine the rate. We are very competitive with other specialized tour companies in the Wine Country and we will strive for your business.

Do your rates include gratuity?

A base gratuity is automatically added to your final bill. We charter our vehicles for tour by the hour, plus a fuel fee and gratuity at twenty percent. We are a very small company, specializing in premium wine tours so quality of service is always at its best.

Will my party be the only guests on the tour?

Yes! All tours are specific to YOU! You will have your own private vehicle, and your own guide. We do not offer “mixed” group tours.

Do the tour rates include tasting fees?

No, tasting fees, wine and food purchases are separate from the Eclectic Tour Rate.

What are the Lunch options for my tour?

Lunch can be a picnic, chefs prepared at the winery, gourmet catered lunch boxes or possibly a formal sit-down at any of the area’s world class restaurants. We are happy to make the reservations or place the orders for you, the options are endless. Please let us know any and all dietary restrictions or requirements. Also, the first names of each guest is requested by the chefs for all catered lunches. Bottled water will be provided in all vehicles for your tour.

How many wineries will be visited?

Generally, in a typical day with Eclectic Tour you will visit 3-4 Wineries. In the case of a tour that is filled with appointments for private tastings, we would need to stay on schedule.

Do I get to meet owners and winemakers?

In many cases, yes, but the schedules of owners and winemakers are not predictable, so they may not always be available. We generally choose wineries that are off the beaten path, where you will receive the attention you deserve.

Can we charter a car for dinner?

Absolutely! There is nothing better than traveling to dinner in style! We are also very happy to make your reservations at any of the region’s world class restaurants.

Can I purchase a gift certificate for a wine tour?

The certificate will be specifically printed and addressed to the recipient of your choice.

What is your cancellation policy?

We have a 72 hour cancellation policy, except during the high season of August 15th-November 15th, when the cancellation policy is 14 days . We ask for a credit card number to reserve your special day and there is a non refundable deposit of $100. If you cancel within the 72 hour time frame (or the 14 day time frame during high season), the full minimum charge will be billed to your credit card unless we are able to book a replacement tour.
