Our driver, Brian, was excellent! He was funny, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about a variety of subjects. The only improvement I would make would be more time spent in Muir Woods. The park was very beautiful and I wanted to spend more time there. Other than that, I would highly recommend this tour! Well worth the money!
Tour guide was energetic, highly knowledgeable regarding historical facts about the area, and went above and beyond to make sure we had a pleasant time. Muir woods was beautiful, but I could have stayed there for hours. The wine tasting was wonderful. We ended up buying tons of cheese, pear vinegar, and blood orange olive oil.
I highly recommend this tour !! Amazing driver, dynamic, funny, always learning to us facts about every area we crossed.
Muir woods : love it ! maybe 30 min more would have been better.
Wineries we visited we amazing, beautiful and all different from each other. Great wine of course.
Sonoma was also great to visit, but 2 hours can be a lot, so 1h30 should be enough, adding the 30 min. to Muir Woods
Foi ótima, o guia nota 10, muir e as viniculas visitadas são muito boas e o final para fotos surpreende todos. Vale cada centavo.
This was an excellent tour and I would highly recommend it to visitors the the area. In addition to being super friendly, our tour guide, Paul, was amazingly well-informed about local history, wildlife, plant life and the wine making process in general. A very informative trip. You start the day with almost two hours at Muir Woods, which is more than enough time. Then you visit a winery, the city of Sonoma and two more wineries. All were excellent stops and there was plenty of great wine to be had. A definite highlight of our trip to San Francisco.
This was such a great tour - just what we were hoping for! Our tour guide Brian was friendly, knowledgeable, responsible, and excited for us. Muir Woods is beautiful - and the three wineries were the perfect number for one day. The van was comfortable and clean - highly recommend!
We enjoyed our tour enormously. We left on time, had a comfortable coach, and our guide was knowledgeable and a great presenter. We were very pleased with the entire day.
Trip was great. Tour guide was very professional and knowledgeable, and made us feel very welcome. Muir Woods was beautiful, very peaceful first thing in the morning. Unfortunately, the wine tour portion of tour was canceled due to the wild fires in Sonoma and Napa valley. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and firemen affected by the fires. I hope the wine region will survive.
This was a really amazing tour and we visited the Muir woods and three wineries in Sonomo County. The tour was a very small group of 14 people and we first went to Muir woods. The place was very calm, nice and one where you can connect with nature. There were multiple trails and it took us 1 hr to complete the mid sized one. The onsite gift shop is also good and had a nice collection. From there we went to wine tasting in Sonoma County and enjoyed the experience. We did get a chance to view the vineyards and taste the wonderful wine. We ended up taking couple of bottles and really enjoying them. The bus driver was very nice and knowledgeable. He was aware of all the facts and managed to answer most of our queries.
You get to see a lot in a few hours...Muir woods was spectacular and the wine tastings were fun. The driver, Richard, added a lot of information along the way. The unfortunate part is that you don't get to pick your bus mates...in my group everyone kept to themselves until after several tastings then the conversations started and the tour become more interesting.
We enjoyed our day. It worked out well to arrive at Muir Woods early and void the crowds. We were able to enjoy the serenity of the park. We had a good mix of wineries, one larger, one independent and one medium sized. The day was well organized and our driver/guide was very informative. We learned a lot along the way and he offered excellent suggestions at each stop.
Picked up from hotel around 8am for full day tour. Modern clean vehicle which accommodated 15 tourists. Driver gave a commentary during the day. Muir Woods stop was for approx an hour and driver kept everyone to time which meant we weren't waiting around afterwards. It was enjoyable but we've been to redwood forests before so nothing we hadn't seen previously. Then on to first vineyard for tasting and a wander around the stunning grounds. Stopped in Sonoma for lunch before visiting the last 2 vineyards. All vineyards were lovely locations and a separate tasting area had been set aside at each for the group so we avoided the crowds.
It was the highlight of our San Francisco trip.
Wonderful tour! Our guide, Brad was amazing...very informative, funny, personable and extremely accommodating. Highly recommended!
This trip was a great experience. our guide was entertaining and full of information. He went out of his way to make sure that everyone in the group was having a good time. Meir woods is well worth the visit. The three wineries we visited ranged from very small to moderate sized, with a variety of wine styles. There was even some olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting at one. This was our first wine tour and it definitely made us want to go again.
This tour was amazing! Our guide was excellent, he was very knowledgeable and amusing. We stopped to see the Golden Gate Bridge and walk through Muir Woods, which was really wonderful. After that, we visited three different wineries and had the opportunity to try a lot of different wines. We really enjoyed the Cline and the Jaccuzzi wineries. In the middle of the day we stopped at Sonoma plaza for lunch, which was an interesting place. This tour was a very good experience and I would highly recommend it.
Great tour guide....lovely man, great interest in showing us everything, Muir Woods is a beautiful spot. The wine tour was great with lovely people talking to us and we enjoyed tasting the wines.
This trip takes in a valley full of ancient sequoia trees, three or four if you are quick with lunch wineries and lunch at Sonoma plaza. It also provides some excellent views down on the golden gates bridge and some distant views of San Quentin.
Brian the guide was very informative, friendly and helpful. We lunched at Mary's in Sonoma plaza, a large traditional italian restaurant that provided excellent value.
The wineries included are all low production wineries and so avoid large bus parties there were 15 participants in our group. I particularly enjoyed the Cline and Jacuzzi wineries.
This was one of the best guided tours we have experienced for a good while. Pick up at hotel was on time. The bus was very comfortable and the guide / driver was first class being both knowledgeable and amusing. Muir woods was my first experience of seeing such huge trees and I was not disappointed. Walk through and you experience a great feeling of tranquility. We usually walk as opposed to amble and had plenty of time to take photographs and do the complete round trip following the long trail to bridge 4 and returning by the high path. We visited three wineries. The first and second were relatively small and informal. The third one was a bit larger with some nice grounds to walk round plus a largish gift shop. Sonoma was for us an interesting place reminding us of the small country towns in Australia. We stopped in one of the coffee shops located by the square and fell into a conversation with one of the locals who told us of a few places to look at including the hotel and the 'cheese factory'. This proved to have interesting memorabilia inside whilst recognising the contribution of tourists to the local economy was a little sad about the gentrification which had taken place. But his advice added to our enjoyment as we walked around the town which would not have been possible if we had spent time over a more substantial lunch.
On the way back, the driver took us up to look over the Golden Gate bridge. All in all, we both felt the tour was excellent and good value.
We had a great day out with a very friendly guide. This tour gave us great value and we would be happy to recommend.
Richard was a great tour guide. He knows alot about the area and was helpful in his suggestions. We went over the Golden Gate bridge and on to Muir Woods. We had enough time to see most everything. Then on to the first winery. It was nice. We tasted 6 wines there. We then drove to Sonoma and had lunch. Richard suggested several places we could eat at without alot of waiting. WE went on to 2 other wineries and had 11 more wines between them. We drove back to San Francisco and stopped to take photos of the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a very nice day and I would highly recommend booking this excursion.
This was an amazing tour that I would highly recommend. Paul our tour guide was so knowledgeable and kept the group entertained and engaged. Muir Woods is a spectacular place to see. Everything was well organized at each winery and the overlook stop to see the Golden Bridge was the best way to end the day.
My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Calder was an excellent guide, with a lot of good information and really fun! Between the trip to Muir Woods and the stop at three wineries - we definitely got our monies worth! We rented a car a couple days later to return to Sonoma and check out Napa, but found it difficult to find wineries that were open to the public at the time we were there. We were very glad that we had taken the tour and had the opportunity to try so many wonderful wines.
This was the best tour I've been on in a long time! Paul, our tour guide, was phenomenal! I learned so many things about the history of San Francisco and its countryside. Each stop we made was perfectly timed and so much fun. I would recommend to anyone and do this tour again!
