  • Our tour was moderately paced; packing in a lot of interesting experiences

    • Service
      Tour experiences provided more than site-seeing. Our Tour Manager involved local tour guides presenting a close-up perspective on the places we visited (wineries, olive and walnut farm, city/museum tours}.Perhaps a 2-3 day extension of overall tour length could provide us with more free time to explore areas of interest as we go

      Difficult to choose just one! Lake Tahoe cruise was breathtaking: water so emerald green and at the same time so turquoise blue! Also, enjoyed very informative tours of both Ironstone and Ravenswood Wineries. Our Yosemite tram ride left me wanting to spend another day in the park and made me more appreciative of those who were so dedicated to the preservation of our wilderness, a national treasures indeed! Then there was the culmination of our tour aboard the Napa Valley Wine Train-a step back into elegant train dining/travel of yesteryear!
    • Service
      The trip was extremely well planned. Our tour guide was warm and friendly and worked hard to make certain everyone's needs were accommodated.

      I am unable to book my tour and pay by computer. But, the representatives at Collette are well-trained and handle inquiries and bookings easily.

    • Service
      If I could give less than 1 star for this tour I would. Except for the hotel in San Francisco the stops were not conveniently located to the points of interest. We were constantly sitting for hours on the bus going back and forth. On this trip I spoke with a traveler who was currently on the Trafalgar Northern California tour. Upon returning home I viewed the itinerary of the Trafalgar trip and not only did they stay IN Yosemite Park and IN South Lake Tahoe, the intinerary included many areas like the Redwood Forest, Big Sur and Monterey. I most definitely wish I had taken this vacation instead of yours. I must say our guide Michelle tried her best to make lemonade out of lemons and the bus driver Drew was very good. However, this was my second trip with Collette and I can emphatically state that it will be my last. In fact, this week I have already booked my 2019 vacation to Ireland with CIE Tours "Irish Odyssey". Collette - Never Again!

      As previously stated hotels too far away from points of interest. Also why wasn't the last night of the tour spent in San Francisco perhaps near Fisherman's Wharf again where we would have had the choice of many restaurants. Instead most of the group sat around the hotel lobby eating food they got from the Safeway next door. I was livid that the entire bus full of people where left at the airport very early in the morning when several persons did not have departing flights until 3 or 4 P.M. Am I really to believe that on the last evening of the tour you could not have put us in a hotel which offered airport shuttles. My only conclusion of this tour was that Colette was much more concerned with making money from the places you took us - i.e. Black Oak Casino, a cheese store, and too numerous wineries, than you were with the comfort and pleasure of your clientele. I wish the bottom of this survey read "I'm Done With Collette"!
