Traveler Tips

I do love small-production wineries, but maybe include only 1 in the package?
For a person that isn’t much of a wine drinker I certainly appreciated the red by the end of the day.

Rainy Day Fun
Shannon_F, Mar 2023
Anthony was delightful. The day was wonderful. Would substitute the last winery for another. The owner left our group midway through for another group so the energy dropped to zero. Peter Cellers, however, was fabulous.
Anthony saved the day
sharron_s, Mar 2023
The weather was so dreadful that one of the wineries on our tour was actually under water but our excellent guide Anthony called ahead and managed to rearrange our trip times and book us in elsewhere. He was very knowledgeable about all the wines and incredibly entertaining. Thoroughly recommend
Small group; Big experience!
Wendy_W, Mar 2023
This was a great way to visit local Sonoma wineries with the added bonus of beautiful Sausalito in a small group setting. Our guide, Marc, did a great job of making it a personal and memorable experience. Get ready for interesting facts, funny stories, trivia, and of course, wine tasting!
Perfect Sonoma experience
Liz_M, Mar 2023
Our tour guide Mark was so great; informative, funny and professional. Love that the tour focussed on small wineries, and that we could choose ourselves where to eat in Sonoma. Highly recommended!!

Chase_P, Mar 2023
All around great experience. The wineries were all quality and informative and would recommend this to anyone who wants a small group tour. Can’t say enough good things about our guide Anthony. He was entertaining and clearly knew his stuff. All in all it was a great day trip and would book this company again.
Such a fun day out!

We loved our tour guide Nick - such a lovely guy which made the tour :) The wineries were great and all very different. The second was our favourite - we loved Martin and sitting around the fire with the delicious Pinots.
The BEST experience!!!

Surprisingly good time!
James_S, Feb 2023
Our guide, Nick, was very laid back, knowledgeable and hospitable. We had a small group that turned out to be a fun bunch! The wine stops were all good - I liked that we we’re supporting small growers - and we had plenty of time at each stop as well as for lunch. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Laureen_R, Feb 2023

Informative and fun
Sandra_W, Feb 2023
Our tour guide was extremely informative, not only about wines and wine tasting but also about the art and culture of the area. All the wineries that we visited had a variety to choose from. The trip also included a few stops along the way to add to the experience. We loved seeing the bridge and stopping in Sausalito.
Great trip!

Paul was amazing tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and made the day very enjoyable. Would highly recommend this trip. We had a great day!
Wine o’clock
Dawn_D, Feb 2023
Our first tasting gave us lots of background information and was very knowledgeable - our second tasting was excellent wine but more hands off - had an excellent stop off for lunch with lots of choices of restaurants - our afternoon tasting was really friendly and lovely easy wines. Nick our guide was lovely and friendly and very helpful throughout the day.
We enjoyed all three...
Debra_H, Jan 2023
We enjoyed all three wineries. The wine was delicious. Anthony, our driver, was wonderful!! He went above and beyond to make this a memorable experience. Would highly recommend.
flawless experience
Rene_N, Jan 2023
Nick make the tour a great time! the communication from the day before was clear and on time. the pick up time was as flawless as you can imagine. the wine tasting places were pretty different from each other so we got a really good experience. the driving was great as well as the music. Nick gave us enough information for us to know what to spect but also just the right amount to don't overshare or saturate. totally recommend this for couples and friends.
Sonoma day
marcus_b, Jan 2023
An excellent experience from beginning to end with our guide Nick and a lovely group of co-travellers! Beautiful views of the Bridge, the Bay, Sausalito, and the wine country! Nick is an excellent, well informed and very funny guide. We learned a lot about the whole wine experience. Would totally recommend!!!
Mark's wine Edge of the world Tour - the best Tour
Sharmila_A, Jan 2023
Mark was a good driver, the vehicle used was excellent, his talk was intelligent, and he played trivia games on history. He introduced us to each other all stayed united under his care. He drove us on schedule. Mark, we loved the small-group tour. God Bless you and your family, and your Small-Group Tour business may grow. Hopefully, we should travel with you on many more trips.
