Overview

Combine two Bay Area attractions on a full-day tour of the Sonoma wine country and Alcatraz Island. Travel by comfortable coach across the Golden Gate Bridge, stopping at a vista point before wine tastings at two vineyards, including Cline Cellars. Returning to San Francisco, ride a ferry past the city skyline to Alcatraz for an award-winning audio tour of the infamous former prison. The Sonoma portion of the tour is limited to 13 people, ensuring a small-group experience with your informative guide.
  • San Francisco combo tour to Sonoma Valley and Alcatraz
  • Start your day on a high note with wine tastings at two Sonoma wineries chosen for their charm and friendly staff
  • Sip varietals like pinot noir and chardonnay at Cline Cellars and Larson Family Winery
  • Enjoy free time at Fisherman’s Wharf to buy lunch and sightsee
  • Cross San Francisco Bay on a scenic ferry ride to Alcatraz Island
  • Explore the prison on an independent audio tour that features commentary by real prisoners
  • Sonoma portion of the tour is limited to 13 people to provide a more personalized experience
Start your full-day combo tour at San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf, where you’ll meet your guide and small group for the 1-hour drive to Sonoma Valley. Board your minibus and head north across the Golden Gate Bridge, listening to a brief overview of the day’s itinerary. You’ll stop at a vista point for photo ops of the shimmering — or fog-shrouded — bridge, city skyline and Marin Headlands.
On arrival at the picturesque hilltop location of Cline Cellars, a winery established by Sonoma’s Sebastiani family, enjoy a tasting of wines such as chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and sangiovese. Spend 45 minutes here before continuing up the road to the Larson Family Winery for your second tasting.
Sample varietals like malbec, pinot noir or perhaps a sparkling rosé at this unpretentious venue; perhaps enjoy some bocce ball in the large outdoor space, located in the heart of the Carneros region.
After 45 minutes at Larson, you’ll return to Fisherman’s Wharf, where your guide leaves you with your ticket to Alcatraz. You have about two hours of free time to spend on lunch and independent sightseeing (own expense) before checking in at Pier 33 and boarding the public Alcatraz ferry — just a 20-minute walk or a quick pedicab ride away.
View the Golden Gate Bridge and city skyline from the water during the scenic ferry crossing over San Francisco Bay to Alcatraz Island. On arrival, slip on a provided headset for an independent audio tour of the notorious penitentiary. Hear award-winning commentary from former inmates and prison guards as you learn about life inside the cell block.
Most visitors spend about two hours at Alcatraz, but you can take the ferry back to Pier 33 when you’re ready.
Please note: Winery/vineyard locations are subject to change.

The wine tour was great. The vineyards selected were both excellent, the driver was lovely and the presenters at the vineyards really knew a lot about wine. The only downfall was the drop off point from this part of the tour to the next part was a bit far to walk for an unfit person.Alcatraz is a bit stressful to get on and off the ferry as there are a lot of people. Alcatraz itself is fascinating but beware, a few very steep hills to walk.

The guide for the wine country was great, but the wine tours were just OK. The first stop at Cline was very informative, but one hour Doesn’t give you enough time to tour the property And hang out. You only go to two stops and you have an hour at each. The Alcatraz trip was awesome! The audio Tour was great and my wife and I loved it.

The first winery was awesome. The second was very commercial and not personal at all. Alcatraz was good but not very well kept.

Really enjoyed this tour....was a morning trip in Sonoma Wine Country, our guide was Jan and she was awesome. We liked that this was limited to a small group - 13 or less.

This tour included on your own - tickets to Alcatraz that we found out later was hard to get to unless you booked ahead. Alcatraz was very interesting and enjoyable. I do think it should be noted that the Alcatraz site is equal to walking up 13 stories. That was not a problem for us but it would be for many people. Alcatrez site can take a limited amount of people up using a small conveyance but most people walk.

That said - the tour was great and I would book through here again without hesitation.
