Hop on board the shuttle by the Ferry Building and enjoy a day of wine tastings and more!

San Francisco’s proximity to Napa Wine Country makes a tour to the area a must when staying at Hotel Union Square.

The Wine Country Shuttle Tour is the premier Napa Wine Country tour and it’s a fun way to see picturesque scenery. The open-top tour shuttle lets in a breeze, allowing you to enjoy the crisp air—and there are plenty of picture-taking opportunities along the way!

We often recommend the Wine Country Tour Shuttle to guests staying at our Hotel in San Francisco because the tour is a great way to really appreciate the beauty of the Bay Area. When you set out from downtown San Francisco in the open-top Sprinter, you’ll ride a bit through our city and then be on your way to 4 or 5 winery stops and a picnic lunch in Napa Valley.
