Classic Half-Day Napa Bike Tour

TOUR OVERVIEW

Our Classic Half-Day Bike Tour is popular for good reason: You’ll enjoy the unique experience of bicycling through wine country – visiting two local wineries for tastings – and still finish early enough to make other plans for your afternoon!

You’ll join a small group (limited to 12 guests) led by a local, knowledgeable Tour Guide who’s there to enhance your education of the “vine-to-bottle” process. You’ll average just 3-6 miles of pedaling between winery visits.

Within the first mile or so, you’ll relax as you discover the pace is definitely catered to tourists, not cyclists. With a casual pace and frequent stops, the emphasis is on enjoying the scenery and discovering boutique and family-owned wineries along the way.

Don’t let the beautiful Napa Valley scenery pass you by while you sit inside a car, van or limo. Get out and experience the vineyards up close, engaging all five of your senses to create memories you’ll never forget.


Note: On rare occasions when there are 4 or fewer guests signed up for the Classic Half-Day Bike Tour, this tour may be combined with the Full-Day Napa Valley Bike Tour for the first two winery visits. Following the tasting at second winery, Half-Day Bike Tour guests will be given the option to ride back self-guided or a complimentary van shuttle will be provided back to Yountville.

ABOUT THE WINERIES

When you’re looking for world-class wines, the Napa Valley boasts an embarrassment of riches. But when it comes to finding a wine tasting experience that stands apart, a warm and welcoming tasting room team who exude a sincere eagerness to share their knowledge makes all the difference.

In this spirit, the overall tasting room experience – and especially the people you’ll meet there – predominantly determines which wineries you’ll visit on tour with us.

Tasting appointments are finalized 5-6 days ahead of your bike tour.

If you are concerned about duplicating visits, please let us know about any existing appointments you have made, so we can avoid those wineries on your bike tour: info@napavalleybiketours.com
