What people are saying about Sonoma Valley

Anthony was simply wonderful, so knowledgeable and friendly with a ready wit to boot! The boutique wineries were all excellent, much more authentic than the large commercial producers. Our group was great fun and as predicted by the 2nd winery we were all best of friends ! Really enjoyed Sonoma as well for lunch, some great choices to eat and ice cream too. Thanks again Anthony, you really cared about your guests enjoyment and it was the highlight of our trip to the US! See you again!

My original booking with another company was cancelled and I booked this tour last minute. I am so glad I did! Comfortable clean transport. Small group but not overbearing. Everyone was punctual and you had time to explore on your own. It is a great day trip if you have limited time in San Francisco and want to maximize your experience. Our guide Ron was very friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend.
