Top off your Napa getaway

Experience Napa like a local on our unique guided walking tours through the heart of the city. Our walkabouts allow you to indulge in the Napa lifestyle while our local guides take care of the rest.

On our Napa walking tours, we want you to discover the city in a fun and unique way. You won’t find our routes in a guidebook; our stops are local gems that Napans enjoy.

And while our tours are carefully organized, each tour maintains a sense of discovery.

Why Napa?

The city of Napa is the urban center for California’s premier wine destination. It also happens to be a vibrant city with an eclectic community. From third-generation wine makers to first time brewers and legendary artists, Napans are in a class of their own. And with the recent surge in development, Napa has quickly become a sensible home base for epic California Wine Country adventures.

Our walkabouts feature neighborhood gems that truly make Napa unique. Among them: historic homes, public art, boutique wineries, and hip nano-breweries. Our guides will show you the city through their eyes. The result: A Napa experience you can’t get anywhere else.

What’s a Walkabout?

Our goal is to create a unique experience that is more than a tour of facts. We want our guests to indulge in the local culture and meet interesting Napans along the way. We have selected each stop to maximize authenticity. In addition, our close relationships with owners at each location means all of our guests receive an added personal touch.

Our guides love to call Napa home and are excited to show what the city has to offer. Paper Napan prearranges all appointments, so our guests simply have to show up and we’ll take care of the rest.

Napa Walkabouts

Paper Napan offers two different Napa walking tours. On the first, discover the emerging Rail Arts District (RAD Napa), complete with murals of every size. This tour also includes visits to two urban boutique wineries and a hip brewery, all of which serve light snacks. Our friends at these locations welcome guests instantly and dish out a custom personal experience.

On the second tour, our guides will take you by and through some of Napa’s historical homes, follow the city’s Art Trail for a few blocks, then visit two wineries that serve food pairings with their wines. Because of our relationships at these stops, this experience is personalized, too.

You can join us for an afternoon or simply come out for an hour on the Express walking tour. We typically offer Napa Walkabouts every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, but due to COVID we are only operating custome Private Walkabouts.
