Really enjoyed this trip. The smaller sized group was very nice and made it easier to get in and out of the wineries on time. Byron was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining during the trip.

Fantastic trip! Our tour guide was really cool and knew quite a bit about the area, and the winery stops were wonderful. Each one was very unique and the wine selections were varied enough for pretty much any taste. It's also a tour that's pretty easy on seniors since there's not a ton of walking involved.

Great experience. Our tour guide, Malcolm was fabulous. We felt so taken care of. We loved the wineries Good variety of wineries. The only thing I would change would be to spend more time at the wineries. Next time, I would like to just do 2 wineries and lunch, and spend more time at each winery. Thank you so much for your attention to detail . This was a great trip! We will do it again!

The tour was very good. Our guide, Jordy was on time and very knowledgable. He did a good job of explaining the tour and telling us the history of San Francisco on the ride out. The wineries were very nice and we had a great day for the visit.

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.
