For the remainder to the day enjoy, relax, and sip wine while our private driver takes us through the Napa Valley region. In the early evening we will arrive at our private house in the town of Calistago. After breakfast on Saturday and Sunday morning, we'll head out to visit, taste, and tour fantastic wineries. With over 400 wineries in Napa Valley, it can be hard to choose. Our wineries on our trip will be a mix of famous and old, family owned, picnic vistas, and even a 13th century winery. If time permits on each day, we will visit more wineries in the area and tastings would cost extra. In between our wine visits, we'll also explore the quaint towns of St. Helena and Calistago. Each town has its own individual charm. Explore their contemporary art galleries, chic boutiques, quaint cafes, and cellar tasting rooms. Calistago town is known for their spa and mud baths! On Sunday mid-afternoon you'll have time to sign up and try a treatment of your choosing. An authentic mud bath- take this experience in! We will also go on a short walk through the Petrified Forest. It will be like stepping through time, over 3 million years ago, as we follow the trail of majestic petrified redwood giant trees. On Monday morning we'll start our drive back to San Francisco, stopping at a food market in Napa for a bite to eat. Group members departing on this day will be taken to the airport for their afternoon flight home. Teresa Zirkel Circle The World[masked]

What we're about

Ever wanted to do something out of your comfort zone and didn't want to wait for friends to make a decision to join up? Awesome Things to do was formed for that reason in mind while saving some cash. Organizers look at deals offered by discount websites and turn them into events so you don't have to go at it alone and often it's an even better deal when we have a group rate. We're fun, well-organized, and aren't afraid to speak up to vendors who do not hold up to their end of the deal. Most of all, we're sociable. Damn it, we are sociable.

We enjoy making new friends and hope that you meet some great people in this group: just try not to flake and remember to chip in for gas/tolls.

The following is a taste of what's out there (typical adventures are beginners/intermediate):

• Hiking

• Kayaking

What is a Silent Disco or Quiet Clubbing? Each person receives a pair of wireless headphones. This allows you to adjust the volume and choose between up to three DJs by flicking a switch.

Do you like listening to: Top40, Trance, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Latin, Salsa, merengue, Bachata, Rap, Electronic, Line Dancing, 80's, 90's, and everything else? Then Quiet Clubbing is for you...

Don't worry about coming out alone, that's what most people do... Quiet Clubbing is very SOCIAL! You need to experience it to understand!
