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.
We had such a great trip. Really enjoyable experience with beautiful scenery. Highly recommend this trip.
Had a wonderful time. Our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. The wineries were great choices. Thoroughly recommend this tour!
It was awsome! Buddy really pampered us, we had a great time.
The food was great in a pretty restaurant.
Going with a small tour is definitely the way to go! I was expecting some van but the small van/bus was beautiful, leather seats, very nice ride. You get a lot of wine samples and get lots more time to wonder around the vineyards. Also, having the lunch included was nice so you didn't have to spend time trying to figure out what you wanted for lunch. We ate right away and then got to just enjoy some free time around Sonoma. It was fantastic!
Excellent tour !!! The vineyards visited were very informative and had lots to purchase. A great day out if you have the time.
if you like wine this is the best tour ever , 3 different winery all the wine your body can handle , no pressure at all for you to buy a bottle just drink , learn and relax , plus the lunch in a nice restaurant , in one word AMAZING ,
This was a wonderful tour to the Napa wineries. We had a ball at Jacuzzi and Cline Cellars at Sonoma and of course we loved Chandon at the Napa. Our ambassador for the day was very knowledgable and got the group talking and we all had a lot of fun. The small group we had made it easy to get to know each other and as we were from all different countries it was really interesting to swap stories. The only down side was the Italian restaurant we went for lunch at Sonoma. Most of us had ceaser salad as a starter which consisted of limp lettuce and a sweet dressing, there was nothing else in it. In Australia we add crispy bacon, a soft yolk boiled egg, plenty of shaved parmesan cheese, anchovies optional and croutons, maybe our expectations were too high. My husband scored well with the burger he ordered but I had a piece of salmon that was cut so thin and was so dried out it was like jerk. We were picked up and taken right back to the door of our hotel which made it very easy. I would really recommend the tour but not the restaurant - or at lease avoid the salmon!
GREAT Tour! Buddy was our driver and he was and EXCELLENT tour guide. I love the wines, the food, the people on the tour, everything. I would do it again and I will recommend it to everybody who is planning to go to San Francisco.
It was a lovely tour our guide was very good and made the tour even more enjoyable.
The lunch that was provided was very good as well.
This was not our first tour with your group and will not be the last.
Thanks for providing a lovely trip and memory on our 45th anniversary.
Our guide was great - very informative drive to wine country and quiet coming back so that he didn't mess up the buzz. Had such a great time that we ended up joining the wine clubs at 2 out 3 wineries!
Great intro into Sonoma and Napa. Hotel pickup was a plus as we didn't have a vehicle. Chandon tour was a highlight and Larsen Family and Cline wineries were also superb. Helped to have such a great group in our 10 person tour as well. Lunch was decent and guide insured we had time in town of Sonoma to enjoy some chocolate, olive, and cheese tastings as well. Definitely recommend this tour.
This was the highlight of our trip!! Cynthia was our tour guide and she made it very enjoyable!! We went to three wineries and had lunch. The lunch was great, and each winery was wonderful!! Do this trip, you won't regret it!!
A great day tour. The small group of up to 12 11 in our particular case was ideal. Two wineries in the morning with very different wines was an excellent way to compare and experience the product from the region. Lunch was very nice and not rushed. The last winery Domain Chandon included a wine tour and very generous tastings with no pressure to buy. A very generous discount on purchases was also offered by the winery. The tour vehicle was a very modern and well maintained mini bus with a very friendly and knowledgable tour guide/driver.
Total time from pick up to drop off about 8 hours. Highly recommended to anyone who likes wine and would like to know more about the Napa/Sonoma regions.
For our first wine tour it was a blast. There was not one time we didn't have a good time . I won't be surprised if I go again.
Very nice tour, well organized, knowledgeable driver and good van.
I wish it had been a little less expensive and longer, but overall, I was happy with the tour.
