After your trip down the river, climb ashore and enjoy a BBQ lunch. Settle into a spot to lounge or play a round of volleyball before heading out for the wine tasting portion of the day (tasting fees not included).

wine tour ..... ummmm ...... no tour, bit of wine tasting in a shop with a woman who either knew nothing or just simply didn't want to be there. Monotone 1 word answers to any questions and basically a waste of time
It was out first time rafting, it was an early start the driver made us feel very welcome and was very informative,out guide was also very good made is feel really safe,my husband and my sixtheen year old daughter and myself loved it and can't wait to do it again
Our party of seven spent almost three hours on the river raft and had a blast! Our guide was interesting, knowledgeable and a lot of fun! Our driver was also delightful. However, the bus was uncomfortable. The seats had no arm rests so if you were not strapped in, you would keep falling into the aisle and the air conditioning was not adequate for the very hot day. Because of a delay on the river and a late lunch, we were unable to visit more than one winery which was a big disappointment! The winery that we did visit was not much of anything. It was very small and not impressive. The bus ride back to San Francisco was a long nightmare. The driver took an alternate route because of traffic and got lost and the return trip ended up taking four hours, which was unbearable in the hot bus.
