    “We had a great time! The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. I only wish we hadn’t been as rushed from stop to stop and that we had learned a bit more Napa history along the way.”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hey, Lisa! Thanks so much for writing in to us. That sounds like such a wonderful time! I'm glad that despite things feeling a bit rushed for your taste, you were able to fully enjoy this awesome tour! Cheers, Jake.
    “Mary was a great tour guide wish their would of been more food and wine pairings within the tour.”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Carolina, Thanks much for taking the time to write in! I'll be sure to pass you compliments over to Mary, as well as your feedback to our tour partner. We want to ensure that every experience is a 5 star experience! Cheers, Inah
    “This tour was more than I expected. Our tour guide was awesome! There were many stops and I was definitely full at the end. I had no idea Napa had great food.”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Tawsha, Glad to hear you discovered a new side of Napa! I'll pass your compliments along to your guide. Let us know when you feel like exploring another fun city! Cheers, Inah
    “Great food. Come hungry! Mary our guide was a perfect fit to fill us in on some of the history or the area and to give us a feel for what Napa has to offer beyond wine tasting.”
    “We were greeted by our guides in the indicated place. There were 3 couples on the tour. Our guides were knowledgable about the Napa Valley history and very sweet. The tastings were delicious and amazing. We were introduced to local Napa businesses that we were previously unaware of. The only thing missing, that would have earned all 5 stars was, Cloud 9 did not send a confirmation at any time, the week before the event. It would have been a little less stressful with this one service.”
    “This is a wonderful way to explore Napa and get a sampling of the different cuisines available while hearing history of the town. Highly recommend it!! Ended up at a fun and informative wine bar. Many of the group stayed on for a formal wine tasting.”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Marion, What a great way to spend an afternoon in Napa! I hope you were able to taste some delicious food and wine! I am actually going to be visiting Napa also, so if you have any suggestions of places you loved, please send them my way :) Cheers! Jennifer 
    “This tour was just okay, mostly because our guide left a lot to be desired. I felt she could have been a lot more engaged. She seemed more like a shepherd than a guide, leading us around town and then kind of disconnecting when we got to places. She didn’t seem very knowledgeable about the places themselves, or the things we were eating. She interacted with people while walking from place to place, but I felt there were missed opportunities to talk about the food itself. For example, at the first stop she simply handed us a breakfast taco and didn’t tell us what was in it. At other stops there were people to speak to us directly, but at one point I had forgotten what one of the meats at the Fatted Calf was and asked if she remembered, and she simply said, “I don’t.” She didn’t make any move to find out or suggest we ask the man who told us about the meats, as he’d already gone back inside. It wasn’t a huge deal, but it stood out to me that she wasn’t really concerned with helping a client find the answer to a pretty simple question, which is a good indicator of the difference between average/below average and great customer service. She struck me as someone just trying to get through the three hours. The stops themselves varied. C Casa was a nice first stop because there was space to sit outside and meet one another and break the ice. The breakfast taco was pretty yummy, even if I didn’t know what was in it. The second stop was nice, too—the cheeses were all great, and I went back and bought one later. The olive oil place was my favorite—it was fun trying all the oils and balsamics, and the man working there was friendly and engaged and had good energy. (Our guide simply held the bag of bread for us.) The chocolate place was underwhelming but the ladies who spoke to us about the chocolate were nice and they seemed to enjoy what they did. The wine tasting could have been good but the woman serving the wines seemed to be really busy and took a LONG time to come back to serve each new wine. Ultimately the tour started out stronger than it ended, partly because it took a while to sink in that our guide wasn't that great, and partly because at some places it was clear that we were not really central customers but somewhat of a nuisance or afterthought because we were part of a tour, if that makes sense.”
    “Go hungry!!!! The walking is minimal but we checked out some great food places. Great way to get a little of Napa history too. Our Guide, Mary, was very nice and knowledgeable!”
    “Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. She knew a lot about Napa, and we went to parts of Napa we had never seen before. My husband loves to cook, so he was very intrigued by our guide and her knowledge of food and cooking. (He wants to take a cooking class! I am way more interested in eating!) I would definitely take another tour that Cloud 9 Living offers.”
    “The meeting point was not very clearly communicated. I was waiting at the said location but no one was there, thus the tour started 10 minutes late. I also thought there would be more wine tasting. Overall it was a good mix of different local food and provisions- delicious! Thank you.”
    “Mary was a delight. She was knowledgeable and gave us an introduction to Napa that we wouldn't have discovered on our own. Additionally, this was an excellent marketing tool for the participating merchants. We have already returned to one of the participating shops and will very likely visit more before we leave Napa. ”
    “The overall experience was excellent. We had a great time. I would have liked a little more depth in information about Napa, the history and future plans. ”
    “Excellent tour- this made me want to come back to the city of Napa - so much history, and so much to explore!”
    “We very much enjoyed the tour, but we were definitely hungry at the end. It started at 11:00 and ended at 3:00. We had many nibbles along the way, but they were just nibbles. A few thin slices of cheese, followed by a few bites of salumi, teaspoon of ice cream and chocolate and wine tasting that you can do all day in the valley for little or no charge. For $160.00 we could have had a wonderful lunch with wine and been totally satisfied. After the tour we went to Hog Island Oyster Co and had a dozen oysters for another $40.00.”
    “Would refer to any foodie friends”
    “We had a delightful experience. All vendors were passionate, friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. Mary is the best tour guide ever! Thank you.”
    “We thought it was a particularly good experience! Our guide, Mary, was informative, pleasant and made the 3 hour experience particularly enjoyable. It's always good to have a local as a guide. We have talked about it several times (since doing it) and think it was very well-organized (from sampling of cheeses, to charcuterie, to chocolates, and finishing with wine sampling). It was also a good value. We were given a certificate for San Francisco (downtown Italian neighborhood tour) but know that area very well. It was easy to exchange this tour for the Napa tour. Job well done!”
    “Mary, our guide, was AWESOME! I would do another tour with her any day.”
    “Swan was our guide on our Napa Food Tour. She was knowledgeable, friendly and professional. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this experience and Cloud 9 to friends.”
    “Maria our tour guide was warm and friendly. She was personable and a lot of fun. She's great and just really knowledgeable and nice. Elsa at Vintner's collective was rude and condescending. She epitomizes the snobbery associated with wine and really wasn't helpful and knowledgeable. She was arrogant and just rude. I felt so bad for how she treated one of my friends. I bought this as a gift and ended up regretting how my friend was treated. ”
