Discover San Francisco on a city tour, tasty lunches at local wineries, biking in Napa—one of the most beautiful regions in California, visit to Healdsburg.
Italy and France may be wine’s ancestral home, but it maintains a cozy little address stateside, too. Best seen by bike, California’s Napa Valley is America’s wine country, and while our adventures are built around the vineyards, there’s plenty of fun to be found on the outside of the bottle here. A great combination of activity and leisure, this adventure will have you biking your way through the rolling hills to wine tastings at a trio of renowned vineyards, exploring small-town markets in search of delicious locally grown produce and whiling the evenings away around a bottle of your favourite vintage. This is indeed California, but trust us—it ain’t no dream.
