Around noon, hop back into your coach and travel to wine country for an afternoon of tastings. For lunch, pop into a winery or over to the historic town square of Sonoma. The square offers delicious samples at Sonoma Jack’s Cheese Factory to pair with any bottles you’ve purchased, as well as boutique shops and the Mission San Francisco de Solano.

We loved having Mitch as our guide for the day. So knowledgable about pretty much everything; tour-related and otherwise. This was a great trip. Sitting looking out onto the sunset over the rolling hills of Napa sipping delicious Californian wine. Who can put a price on that? The highlight was the great company on the day!

Great day, with awesome tour guide
Sarah_W, Sept 2023
Awesome trip. The Muir woods were beautiful, and the second winery Ru Vango was a wonderful experience. Roche Winery was pretty, but the wine tasting experience was very average. Big shout out to our tour guide Eileen, she was wonderful
Beautiful scenery, relaxing trip!
AUDREI_M, Sept 2023
Great day trip, knowledgeable and friendly guide (Jay) made a group of people meeting for the first time become good friends.
Great Tour!
Patricia_G, Sept 2023
We had a great time on our tour. We went to the Muir woods, Sonoma and Napa wine tasting. Each tour was unique and the vineyards were beautiful. Our tour guide, Eileen was amazing. She picked us up at the hotel, and dropped us back there, very convenient. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the area went over and above to make sure we had a good time. I highly recommend this tour!
Nature, wine, friendship and fun
Jean_R, Sept 2023
Over-all it was really fun and informative. Eileen, our driver was a lot of fun and personable. I told her that after visiting 2 vineyard that I'd sleep on the way home. She laughed and said that she can guarantee that I'll be laughing and singing - she was right! I was a bit disappointed with the pick-up (nothing to do with Eileen). Our hotel was in Mill Valley and we were told that we can only be picked up at a San Francisco hotel, yet, we drove past our hotel and could have easily been picked up there.
Serene and relaxing
Kathy_O, Sept 2023
Muir Woods and the wineries were spectacular but the most memorable part of the trip was the wonderful people we were on the tour with!! And Jay, as our guide, was knowledgeable, personable and a great driver on that VERY winding road🤪🤪 Would highly recommend this tour to everyone!!

Muir Woods, Sonoma, Napa, and Wine
Sue_T, Sept 2023
The entire trip was absolutely wonderful!! Muir Woods was a fantastic! The beauty and tranquility of the area were amazing. The Mission at Sonoma provided a great experience in history and time for a relaxing lunch. Finally, the time at the vineyards was fun and provided just enough time to learn more about the specific vineyards we visited, a bit more about the wine making process, and, of course, time to sample various wines. Our guide for the day was awesome and definitely did a great job in making this a wonderful trip!

Not what we expected
hrdj, Aug 2023
The tour had 13 people on a small van. Rather crowded with no empty seats. Not comfortable for people over 6 feet tall. We also had seven stops in the city before the tour even began and we were the second stop. We were therefore on the van for over an hour before we even left the city. Our tour guide, although, very nice, gave no commentary in the city and very little information about Muir Woods or wine country: Due to the 90 minutes it took to pick up all of the guests we only had an hour and Muir Woods rather than 90 minutes. The wineries that were chosen only provided the advertised tasting. There was no tour of the winery itself or information about the wine production.

Great combo trip
katchryn_w, July 2023
The guide -Kate- was very dynamic and knowledgeable and really went out of her way to make sure we had rhe best possible time at all three stops. Muir Woods was crowded but still delightful. The winery visits in Sonoma and Napa were very interesting and the welcome was excellent. We spent a great day.

An ideal relaxing summer activity
Riki_Q, July 2023
Good pace for the tour itself, and our guide (Anny) was wonderful and very acccommodating. Good combination of outdoor delights and relaxing wine experience - which is perfect for the summer. :)

Very organized tour with experienced, welcoming and friendly staff. Really enjoyed the small group going to Napa and Sonoma valley. The tour guide was very considerate to stop by the Golden State Bridge for a quick snap.

Wonderful trip to beautiful Muir Woods, nice lunch stop in Sonoma and then on to wine tasting in Sonoma and Napa at two lovely wineries. Great guide/driver Mitch kept in lively and interesting.

Perfect day!
Jelena_S, May 2023
The tour was amazing! Everything was as expected. There were 11 of us. We had a stop at the GG bridge for a photo, then spent 1.5 hours at Muir woods. It is enough to enjoy and appreciate it. After that we went to Sonoma plaza and had 1.5 hours for lunch on our own. At both wineries we spent around 1 hour, I just wish we spent a bit more at the second one in Napa, because I liked it more. They are both beautiful though. Our guide Jay was amazing, well organized and gave us a lot of information along the way. Perfect day!

Wine tour and Muir woods
Frank_A, May 2023
We had a small group, only 6, but can be up to 13-14 I think. Muir woods was great to see. Winery visit was very nice, especially the last one where we get to get a tour in the winery

Nice tour
Charles_C, Apr 2023
Very nice tour. Our guide was great, very friendly and funny. A good tour if you want to squeeze in a good amount of activities in a day which we did. The only upgrade I would suggest to this experience would be some cheese and crackers with the wine pairings.

Last minute changes very confusing
Theresa_G, Mar 2023
Trip was changed last minute and there was some confusion as I could not contact incredibles by phone. Trip finally went ahead with a different company, however we were the only travellers who did not get a lunch provided!
