Our tour guide who drove us to the area gave great history and background on San Fran, Sonoma, and Napa. The small bus was very comfortable. The three vineyards we went to were great Jacuzzi, Cline, and Chadon and lunch in Sonoma was okay, nothing impressive. Overall, the trip from 830am-530pm was a great day trip to a beautiful area and stress free.

Great tour, highly recommended. You don't need to take care of anything with the pick up at your hotel. Then you drive on the Golden Gate Bridge to reach Sonoma. Great wineries in the morning, and lovely lunch. Then you drive to Napa and the Chandon domain is incredible. Highly recommended!!!

My husband and I laughed ourselves silly over how easy ti was to take a wine tour with Peter as the driver. We visited Jacuzzi Family Vineyard, and Cline in the morning, then lunch at a cute Italian restaurant in Sonoma and spent the afternoon at Domaine Chandon. We were expected at each stop and treated very well lunch was on the table within five minutes of our arrival, since we had pre-ordered! Our small group was quite collegial, sharing three bottles of sparkling wine amongst us in the afternoon. I highly recommend this tour.

great trip. I think lunch time could be shorter and one of the larger wine companies should be included

One of the highlights of our trip. Pete was a great guide and the 3 vineyards were stunning. We even took 2 kids along 5 and 7 and even they enjoyed running around the vineyards and watching the fish in one of the ponds.
