Wine country is filled with excursions, and among them are Napa Valley walking tours. These tours are a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture of wine country. Not only do you get to visit a number of restaurants and wineries, but also you get to explore local favorites that you might not have known about. As a bonus, you get a knowledgeable tour guide who can fill you in on the history, architecture and artwork of Napa Valley.
Let’s look at a few benefits to choosing a walking tour of Napa and its surrounding areas.
Various Tours to Choose From
Food and wine tours are hugely popular in Napa, but you’re not limited to only these tours. If you’d rather enjoy a spooky night on the town, choose a ghost walking tour that will take you to some of Napa’s scariest places. This area is rich in history, which means it’s also rich in scary legends and hauntings.
Another fun walking tour takes you through the Victorian homes in the Abajo district. This historic location is just two blocks from Napa Mill and Napa River and features homes that were built in the 1800s. Rather than driving through the tree-lined streets, you can walk on foot and spend time admiring each home.
Get Close and Personal
Napa walking tours allow you to experience restaurants, wineries and other locations that are off the beaten path. Many tour agencies limit their group sizes in order to deliver a personalized experience. You can shop at boutique stores, sip on wine from small batches and enjoy gourmet cuisine.
Also, walking tours are led by knowledgeable tour leaders who provide education on topics like biodynamic wine, organic farming and fermentation. There are also certain places that deserve a trip on foot, such as the colorful Victorian homes. You can take your time exploring and capture incredible photos in the process.
Meet Others with the Same Passion
Whether you’re taking the walking tour alone or with a group of friends, it’s always fun to meet people with the same interests. For example, if you go on a ghost tour, you can expect others in your group to enjoy spooky stories and mysterious places. If you prefer a foodie tour, your fellow tour mates will love a great bite just as much as you. Who knows – you may make a few new travel friends!
