This tour was broken down into segments. We were picked up at our hotel, and proceeded to pick up the others at their hotels, which took about an hour. I was unaware of this- I thought there was one starting point. We had 19 people on our tour, so...continued

Dave our driver was funny and amusing with jokes, stories and history of the area. Due to weather (and a tree down blocking the road) we were not able to go to Muir Woods...but they offered to take anyone who wanted to go withen the next couple...continued

Excellent not to be missed wine tour of Sonoma Valley especially at a discounted price. Our guide was Ricky who was very funny and knowledgable and kept us on schedule and on time. Scenery on the drive was very nice. All of the wineries were very...continued

Our driver was great. He was friendly and funny and seemed to know his stuff. I recommend a tour for anyone who has never been to Sonoma before or who doesnt have specific wineries in mind.

The tour was well organized and the start was good. Mark, our guide was wonderful, knowledgeable and engaging. He was well versed in local and State history, and knew his way around the back roads. When the situation required impromptu change...continued

The only problem with this tour is my embarrassment that the tour guide/bus driver, Lars (from Holland) knows more California and San Francisco history and landmarks than I do, a 69 year old California native!
Each of the 3 wineries, Mayo,...continued

Had a great adventure day. We are locals, live in San Leandro, but it's always nice to be tourist. Roman ran a tight ship, which was very good, considering he had to pass by and pick-up people from different hotels. It was a full bus load of...continued

Oh where was Dave the tour guide you all loved? We had Frank, a blowhard who kept fiddling with his Ipod when he should have been looking at the road. He scared one of our group so much she kept her head in her hands all the way to Muir Woods....continued

We had the best tour guide ever - Andy, who knows a lot and is amazingly helpful and cheery! (Much unlike last year's fiasco.)
Make no mistake - this is the cheapo wine tour. You visit 3 OK but not great wineries -= Mayo, Cline and Madonna...continued

First of all Ben, the driver & tour guide, was the best. He was very informative, funny, and helpful. He truly seemed to be enjoying his job.Pick up was on time, less than 1 hour drive to Muir Woods, plenty of time to enjoy the incredible beauty...continued

We had a great time. Roman our guide was awesome, knowledgeable and really funny. Kept us on time. The wineries were nice, some really good wine, some not as good but all fun places. One thing I would change is that I would have liked a bit...continued

Our driver/tour director, Andy, was very nice. Full of energy, and kept up a constant patter of interesting bits of information about what we were seeing. I would recommend the trip to anyone else, especially, if you're not from this area. Even...continued

Second time doing this adventure. The first time a fallen tree prevented us from going to Muir Woods, but not this time. It was breathtaking. The fog was in on the drive down. The fee to get into Muir woods has gone up to $7.00 but it's worth...continued

Great tour with a great guide! We were fortunate that we weren't hampered by the government shutdown and the BART strike. Seeing Muir Woods early in the day, so quiet and peaceful, was amazing. The wineries were friendly and outgoing, although...continued

I've taken this tour before. This time it was very rushed; not much time anywhere. Many I talked to were upset about only an hour each at Muir Woods and Sonoma. The speech was canned. The good parts were recorded. The "extra" , stopping at the...continued

Roman was great. He made the tour. His lively banter was infused with facts and humor. The wineries were fine. Each slightly different; organic, boutique or non-irrigated. Muir Woods is always a treat. The only slight negative was that the bus was...continued

Wonderful and relaxing trip to Muir Woods, Sonoma, and Napa Valley. The crowd was great (~28 people in a comfortable mini-bus) and the tour guide was fantastic. Muir woods was beautiful and relaxing. We went to three great wineries (perfect...continued
