Great experience!

I took my mom on this day-long tour and we had such a wonderful time!! We visited 3 wineries, with a stop for lunch in downtown Sonoma between #2 and 3. BR Cohn was our absolute favorite stop, but each winery we visited was amazing. Antonio was our tour guide and he was extremely knowledgeable and also such a lovely person - he really went the extra mile to make sure we had a wonderful day. I would honestly consider doing this same tour again since they switch up the locations seasonally. It was a great way to experience wine country as a first-timer, but I imagine it would be enjoyable for anyone!

I really enjoyed the tour. We stopped at three wineries, Roche, Madonna Estates both in Sonoma and B.R.Cohn in Napa. Each took us through the wine making process and we tasted several amazing wines while taking in the sights of the beautiful rolling hills. I wish I could recall our tour guides name he was phenomenal he shared alot of information in reference to various points of call along our drive which in itself was a plus. Our trip concluded around 6p after touring the winery and lunch in Napa. I for one had a great time and would recommend to anyone.

This was great! We made a stop at the Golden Gate Bridge before heading to Napa and Sonoma for a ton of wine tastings that were all delicious at 3 different locations. The bus stops in Sonoma’s small town for an hour and a half for you to have lunch wherever you please or do some shopping. It was a great experience and totally worth the cost. So much fun! Thank you!
