The Wine Country Tour was simply awesome from the beginning to the end. Our tour guide was Anthony, and he was the best! Anthony was very knowledgable about San Francisco history, as well as the Sonoma/Napa Valley region. The wineries that we went to each had their own vibe, and the wines were amazing. I would love to do this wine tour again, and absolutely recommend this tour for a friend. And I would recommend have Anthony as a tour guide again!

Fun small group wine country tour
Michelle_O, Sept 2023
What a great day we had on this tour visiting three small owner run Sonoma vineyards and wineries! The small group size meant that we all got to know each other really quickly and it soon felt like a day out with friends. Our tour guide Marc was really knowledgeable and fun. The lunch stop in Sonoma town was a perfect break from the wine drinking. We would definitely recommend taking this tour.
Great tour with a fantastic guide
Emma_W, Sept 2023
This is a great tour out to Sonoma Valley wineries- small group, only 13 of us so it felt personal. Marc was a fantastic guide/ host- introduced us all at the start and then kept us entertained and laughing all day with his humour. He took great care of us, showing care and attention for our safety and well-being. The 3 wineries were interesting and we tried lots of different wines. And Sonoma Plaza where we had just over an hour for lunch was beautiful, lots of shops and lunch options. Overall would highly recommend this tour particularly with Marc as the host
Great day of wine tastings and Sonoma
Rachel_H, Sept 2023
Anja was a great tour guide, she was very knowledgeable about San Fran which was a bonus extra on the wine tour. She was engaging and interesting to listen to. Wine tour was good, only thing we would have liked additionally would be a visit to a more well known vineyard as part of the tour
Best Experience!
Mathew_M, Sept 2023
Our tour was the highlight of our stay in San Francisco. Our guide was engaging and entertaining! We saw many extras and were given fun insights into the community and history. The boutique wineries we visited were run by passionate artists who took delight in sharing their passion with us. I learned so much and met so many interesting people! Thank you for an unforgettable experience. I highly recommend this tour!
Fabbo wine tour

Had a fabulous day with Anthony our tour guide, not only a great introduction to Sonoma wines but a beau introduction to San Francisco and surrounds. Highly recommend this tour.
Great day, wonderful tour guide!
Jacqueline_O, Sept 2023
Anja was awesome! We really loved her and the tour as a whole was great. We really enjoyed Homewood Winery, both for the wines and the staff. We were less impressed with Peter Cellars (wines were okay, the staff seemed bored and wasn’t at all informative of what we were tasting) and Seamus’ wines, but Seamus himself was very nice and passionate. Overall, it was a great day. Thank you, Anja!
Donald_S, Sept 2023
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable with wines and wineries, advised what to expect from each winery and their owners prior to arrival. He also gave us areas history and points of interest
Perfect for wine lovers
Dagmar_R, Sept 2023
We had a fun day at several wineries in Sonoma Valley. Our driver was very nice and knowledgeable. He had some stories for us and we enjoyed the day. I would do it again at any time.
Great tour
Michelle_A, Sept 2023
We had a great time with Mark on our tour! Loved visiting the smaller wineries and getting a more personalized experience. Mark also told us about the history of different places we passed on the ride. It even made his dad-jokes bearable (ha ha). Great time!
Awesome day!!!!
Mike_S, Sept 2023
Our group had an incredible day doing this wine tour. It was total “perfection”! Marc, our tour guide, was awesome and made the overall experience so special. He had incredible attention to detail and great flexibility to allow for a special day for our group. We would highly recommend this tour and we would do it again in a heart beat!
Great day, great host.

Anthony was a great host. Lovely drive and sightseeing tour. Wineries were lovely, but could have had more white wines.
Wine testing in Sonoma
Mathilde_C, Sept 2023
Our wine testing tour was great. Our tour guide, Anthony, gave us a great insight on the area which we found very interesting. We visited 3 vinayards and got to taste a good variety of local wines. Overall a great experience.
Had a great wine country visit with a great guide- Anthony.
Richard_J, Sept 2023
We liked the wine tastings, the lunch stop in Sonoma and time with the guide and other tourists. Anthony made the the trip out to Sonoma enjoyable as well by pointing out various highlight locations and talking about the people who lived in various places we passed on our journey.
You can’t go wrong with this tour!
Mike_H, Sept 2023
This tour was so much fun. We thoroughly enjoyed the tasting rooms we visited, and our guide Anya was outstanding. She way a joy to be around. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting a one-day wine country tour.
Wonderful wine trip
Adam_S, Sept 2023
