San Francisco, California
Our tour guide Mark from Astronomical Tours was great! The first part of the trip was to Muir Woods, on the way Mark told us all about the history of the Redwood trees and of Muir Wood. The walk around the wood was peaceful after the hustle and bustle of San Francisco. Next was on to the main event of the Wine Tasting. We visited our first winery before lunch "Mayo" winery. Small family run, great tour guide Natalie and fantastic wine, pink bubble, white and red.
For lunch we went to Samona Square, plenty of restaurants to choose from, we went to Sunflower Cafe, great food and atmosphere.
The next winery was "Maddona Estates". Fantastic commentary by Maurice, very informative and full of fun too. The last winery was (oop forgotten the name, party after all the wine tasting before and during this one). It stared with tasting 4 reds and then 3 whites and a rose and then you could go into the winery shop and try more of their wines.
On the way back we dropped some of the bus off at Saucalito, more restaurant recommendations from Mark. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel which was a bonus, not sure I could have walked up to the top of Powell and California street where we were staying!
Great tour, good value and brilliant guide, thanks Mark.
