    A wine tour and just a little bit more.

    Antonio was amazing. Very kind. Kept the conversation going. Smiled the entire time. Jokes were great. The only thing that I would look at would be to have lunch after the first winery. We were hungry af about 1130. Other than that. Would definitely go on this tour again

    Thomas was an excellent tour guide/driver. He was very knowledgeable and provided great commentary throughout. He kept us on time and we got back right on schedule. The bus, however, was extremely hot. Despite the fact that the air conditioner was blowing full force, we were sweating. The initial winery was underwhelming but the second two made up for it.

    Loved how the tour took care of all the planning for us during our trip to Napa and Sonoma. The tour guide/bus driver was extremely energetic and enthusiastic about the trip. He also ensured everyone was safe and provided a smooth ride. We thought the event could be improved by including winery and vineyard tours throughout the day. Although the event description stated that we would get tours, we only had a tasting at each winery. It would have been interesting to see more of the behind the scene process and background of each winery, because that is what we paid for.

    The trip was exactly what we were looking for. Pick up, check-in, and drop off was smooth and easy. The tour guide/driver, Antonio, was so nice and provided lots of information throughout the drive through San Fran, Sonoma, and Napa. We stopped at the Golem Gate on the way, and it was pretty foggy, but nothing you can do about that. We visited Muscardini, B. R. Cohn, and Ru Vango and it provided a variety of wine tasting and beautiful scenery. There was plenty of opportunity for water at the wineries which was good to balance out the wine. We had a lunch break at the Sonoma plaza and there are several places to choose from. We had amazing ice cream at Sweet Scoops for desert. We were back in San Fran right around dinner time which was perfect. Overall, I would recommend this trip!

    Our Driver/Guide was Antonia. Very professional, a safe driver and knowledgeable. I do think the two hour break in the Sonoma center was about 30 minutes too long. Was wondering why the change of wineries as originally mentioned in the tour description. But, overall, a good day of wine tasting.

    Good but lacks a key experience
    Airangel_C
    , Jun 2022
    I will start by recognizing that the transportation, trip view and wineries visited were very good. Each winery host was good as well. My main complaint and/or disappointment is that you are visiting these places to learn, not just get a 5min speech and then it all becoming about drinking/tasting the wines considering the amount paid is not cheap. And of course, wineries expecting you buy something. I think you can combine the wine tasting experience with, for example, a video that shows the wine making process that for me is key to see and complete the full tour experience. Another suggestion could be to be able to see, if feasible, a live (or replicated) part of the process wine making process in front of visitors. From both, the video is probably the most feasible and I think it's not a big request to make to these wineries, since doing these things will definitely step up the experience.

    Everything was on time from when we pulled out of union sq to arrival at each winery. Our driver Greg was the best! He was full of fun facts, info and recommendations for San fran as we were driving through. He kept us entertained and informed the whole time. Each winery was different and we enjoyed them all. Sonoma is a beautiful little town for lunch. The whole day was well worth the time and money. Thanks again Greg !

    , Jun 2022
    The tour is an all day affair so be prepared to return later in the day. You'll visit 3 excellent wineries and sample 3-4 wines at each stop. You get 2 hours for lunch in Sonoma with a variety of different food choices. The tour guide driving the bus was very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this tour.
