Fort Worth, Texas
We had done the bus wine tour on a previous trip, but we were looking for something a little more customized. Since it was just the two of us, a stretch limo didn’t make sense. I was so glad to find that the high-quality service of a limo was also available in a sedan. Let me just say, this is definitely not just a car service! The nice people on the phone were very happy to guide us, since we weren’t very familiar with all the wineries. At the same time, we had a couple of wineries we knew we wanted to try. Our wonderful driver, Alex, did an excellent job of suggesting wineries based on atmosphere, views, quality of wines and location. His knowledge of wine and wineries totally exceeded our expectations. There was plenty of bottled water available in the car at no charge (I should have had more of it!). Looking back, the only thing we should have done differently was to book 8 or 10 hours instead of just 6. Without a doubt, this is the ONLY way to tour the wine country!

We have been to Napa many times but had always driven ourselves. My wife had always suggested a limousine. We flew to San Francisco specifically for the one day for an Apex tour of Napa. I was quite impressed by the website and particularly the fact that they pick you up at the San Francisco hotel and drop you back. Secondly I thought the rates were quite affordable. Finally the booking experience was excellent in terms of reaching them by phone and by e-mail and answered all our questions. They were very responsive,
Finally the day came and our driver Matt, the limo, and the overall experience was flawless. The first thing I noticed as we went to each winery was the time that we saved. On arrival I noticed everyone else having to park in a lot that was not always close to the tasting room. Matt was able to drop us as close as possible to the door and we hopped out. Similarly as we walked out he was always paying attention and drove right back up and we were off again.
Also when we drove ourselves we had to spend a fair bit of time looking at maps, but we did not have to do that with Matt driving. After asking us what we were interested in and molding the day to fit our desires, when we got back in the car he had the next stop in mind.
As a result I think we saw twice as many wineries as we would if we had driven ourselves. Finally, Matt recommended and reserved about an aspect place for lunch that we had not heard of. He obtained this the table with a view on a balcony overlooking the valley. It was magical and we thought the prices reasonable yet the food 5 star.
We took the 8 hour booking to allow extra time. We will definitely do this again with Apex many more times.

From the 1st time I called to reserve our limo, Nellie in customer service was so very gracious and kind with any questions I had. They followed through on all calls and emails in a very timely matter and confirming all details within a week of our serivces as well as the day before. Our driver Matt was on time, even arriving a few minutes early. He helped us with any areas we were not sure about and knew right where to go, getting us to Jarvis on time for our scheduled wine tour. Afterwards, he recommended a place for lunch and I have to say, it was one of the most relaxing lunches I had ever had. He then drove us around with some suggestions on other wineries. Those were also very helpful and appreciated. He kept us on time for our party we had to be at. I want to say THANK YOU TO MATT for one of the most pleasent experiences in Napa and if I need to use a limo service again, I will call Apex and I hope Matt can be our driver…..A++++++++++++++
Prior to our tour, I worked via email with Nelli on our pick up times and suggested locations. Instead of being ‘put-off’ by my many edits, Nelli was gracious, kind and patient! When asking for some suggestions, I was promptly sent a menu to a local favorite gourmet grocery store and then links to wine tasting ‘deals’ above and beyond what I expected anyone to do! Our driver Eric – was wonderful. He made several recommendations based on what we said our interests were and he immediately set out to make sure we had an amazing time (which we did!) While in one private tasting he was calling ahead to get us into another one. There were many places we would have never found on our own had it not been for him suggesting and taking us there (i.e., on top of a mountain with an infinity water feature overlooking amazing views!) My in-laws, husband and 5 month old daughter were all there and we had an amazing time!
This was out first time on a wine tour so being wine rookies we had no idea where to go with hundreds of wineries to choose from. We trusted Alex from Apex to guide us in our journey. With much success, he took us to the most beautiful wineries based on what kind of wines we enjoyed and even suggested a nice romantic place to have lunch. Alex was very informative, cheery and professional. We plan to have Alex as our tour guide in our next Napa trip. Thanks.
We booked a limousing through Apex for our 10-year employee anniversary and booked a wine tour. Bruce, the driver, was awesome. His knowledge of great wine tasting places and his humor just made the tour more valueable! Service is highly recommended!! Can’t go wrong with these guys!
