We booked a last minute cycling trip with our family and we had 16 family members in our group. Hunt is an outstanding tour guide. The Honrama vineyard and Vella cheese factory were highlights. Every aspect of our trip exceeded expectations. Thank you!

What a great way to experience the back roads of the Sonoma Valleys. With being an avid ebike enthusiast for vacationing to see sites off the beaten path, this is the way to go. The valleys were stunning, and the houses held so much character. We visited 2 vinyards, the first being Honrama, definetly a modern take here, this is where we had our lunch at. Lunch consisted of a selection of sandwich choices to pick from before departing on our adventure. They were very good sandwiches with chips, cookies and fruit. The Honrama flight was excellent! Nice land to tour and our group didnt hold back on questions, which made it even more educational. Our 2nd stop was at Buenavisa, another beautiful piece of property. The flight was good, but I did prefer the 1st place better. The grounds represented old world charm & culture, a completely different vibe from the first place. But it was a must see for the history and the beauty it carried. Our 3rd stop was at a cheese making establishment where we were able to taste the cheeses and purchase what we enjoyed. This was a nice stop along the way and the cheeses were excellent! We where just then missing the wine...LOL The time did go by very fast. If you are not a biker this is not for you. There where times some did have problems with the e part of the bike not kicking in and they lagged behind, but they did make their way up to us. The roads are not hilly or steep, though some where a bit bumpy. For the most part they are easy to ride, you just have distance to contend with. Our tour guide was very good. He made sure we all were within his site while riding. Was very informative and always kept the conversation moving with the history of where we may have been at during the tour. Do have breakfast or have something in your stomach before you start out. When you arrive to your first visit, you start your flight right away, then go on a tour of the facility and then eat lunch. You may or will get a bit tipsy while you are walking on the tour if you have not eaten anything. I would have prefered to eat in sections, my sandwich, during my first flight, taken the tour, and then came back to finish the fruit, cookies and my last flight. That is just me though... This was a great adventure and would highly recommend adding this to your list of things to do in wine country!!

It was the best bike rental experience!! The owner spent such a wonderful amount of time walking through the map and different vineyards that we could stop at along the way.

Mike’s tours are amazing. We covered brief history of the area, history of wine in Sonoma, walked one of the oldest vineyards in CA ….. and enjoyed tastings of wine and cheese unrivaled. Don’t over spend. Don’t agree to purchase requirements. Don’t miss the details on Mike’s tour. His Sonoma is charming, truly magical and approachable.

Really great time! Lisa, our guide, was great and the wineries and cheese stop was perfect. Made for a beautiful experience for my friend and I. The Swiss Hotel was a great dinner spot after! Thanks for the recommendation Lisa!

We had a great experience. Ask your guide to take you to Honrama. It was awesome and delicious! It’s a long day though. So, be ready to be in the go for a long time.
