Enjoyed a terrific trip to Sonoma with our tour guide, Anthony. We stopped at two boutique wineries (Homewood and Mayo) plus the larger Cline Cellars. We sampled 5 to 6 wines at each stop. Lunch was in Sonoma and it was a beautiful day that allowed us to eat on the sidewalk patio in the sunshine. Anthony was a terrific guide that shared lots of information about San Francisco, Sausalito and Sonoma during our trip there and back.

Overall, my experience was great. I LOVED the idea of it being a small group, which makes for a better personal experience. The ONLY thing I might recommend, would be re-thinking the wineries that are visited. I do love small-production wineries, but maybe include only 1 in the package?
The guide was great too....very knowledgable and personable. That also makes for a great day.
I plan on taking friends with me the next time I do one of your tours!

What a wonderful day we had with our tour guide Anthony. He was fun, witty and full of facts and tails of the San Francisco, Sonoma and Napa areas we toured along with other info about the towns we passed. I highly recommend this group if you are touring this area.

With having the typhoon Hagibis in Japan, my flight got cancelled and had to expand my business trip longer, here in San Fransisco. I decided, then why shouldn't I have a visit to the world's most famous winery county... My trip started with anxiety as it was a solo trip, but every thing changed when I got on the bus. The guide/driver Epete was a thoughtful and knowledgeable guide, who knew all sorts of things. Not only the wine and how to drink, but history, the landscape, and many ideas on what is going on around the world! The winery we went to was lovely but the last but not least Golden gate bridge scenery was lovely too!

Thank you so much for the guided tour! I was lucky to participate, and strongly recommend you on this!

We had a great time!! Anthony our driver was amazing! Great laughs and always ready to take your pictures so you don’t just have a selfie! Great insight to the wineries as well!
Pro tip: bring snacks for the wineiers before lunch!

Fantastic tour, Anthony made the day enjoyable with his knowledge of the area, the wine country and good humour. For a person that isn’t much of a wine drinker I certainly appreciated the red by the end of the day. Top day ⭐️ Highly recommend

This was such a good tour. Plenty of wines to choose from and Antony was an absolute hoot. I went to a comedy night not long ago - didn't laugh once but our tour guide for this had me in stitches. I'd pay just for a comedy ride around San Francisco with him! Our favourite was the first winery and the 'whizzbanger' it had a nice relaxed feel and we could sit down. Only improvement would be to have nibbles whilst drinking or inbetween. Several of us were getting a bit tipsy!! Would definately do this again if I come back. Thanks!

My mom and I travelled with Marc and four others on a beautiful day in August 2019. It was a good balance of driving and tasting and a lovely lunch stop where we were free to eat wherever we liked in Sonoma. Marc was a great guide and we learned a great deal about the area and at each stop about winemaking. We thoroughly enjoyed our day.
