We always like to do food tours when we go to places that we’ve never been. It helps to immerse us in the culture of where we are. Of course being in Sonoma, we wanted to pair our tour with wine. Teresa was a great guide from many perspectives. She was knowledgeable of the area and its history, and I love when guides walk into an establishment, and they are familiar and happy to see them:) Teresa made contact with us 2 days prior to check for allergies and to touch base. We met Sat at 11 (don’t eat a big breakfast!) During our meeting it was nice that she wanted to know about who we were and where we came from. We never would have known to try the places that she brought us to- and all 4 places had something different to offer as far as wine and culinary experiences. There are a lot of tours out there and it was overwhelming to make sure I picked the right one for us. Some also may be slightly less in cost. As far as I’m concerned, this was worth that minor difference. Too bad we don’t live closer , we’d hang w Teresa anytime! Shout out to Dave from Sigh, and Marisa from Galatea Effect ( see photo) who made our time at their places memorable!


Had the best time with Viv on our tour. So fun, engaging and informative. Will definitely do this tour again! Restaurant choices for the food and wine were wonderful!


We booked this tour to celebrate my mom's birthday and it was the perfect way to spend the day in Sonoma. Teresa was an outstanding tour guide. She's knowledgeable, personable, and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time.


Teresa Friedman is an excellent tour guide for Sonoma ~ her knowledge of Sonoma history is vast and we learned a lot about the wines we tasted.


Viv was an excellent tour guide with a wealth of knowledge of local Sonoma history, wine history and food hotspots. My daughter and I were impressed with the range of restaurants we visited along with the quality of the food and wine. We will request Viv for future tours!


We celebrated my husband's birthday with Teresa as our tour guide. By chance, we were the only two people on the tour so it was as though we were walking around the plaza in Sonoma with a friend! Teresa provided information on Sonoma's history, from the beginning to recent times. The tour stops gave us the opportunity to taste four places, including bubbles, Indian food, homemade pasta and delicious wines. We highly recommend this tour for a quick lesson on Sonoma's history and gastronomic offerings!


Four very different wine/food locations. All good. Our group enjoyed the champagne tasting the most.


Was an awesome time! We learned a little about the history of Sonoma and that's some fine wines and champange!


This was a lovely tour. We sampled some delicious food and wines while strolling through the Sonoma Plaza and learning some history of the town. I particularly enjoyed the stop at Sigh for “bubbles” and a delicious cheese plate. Julie was a terrific guide. I highly recommend!


This was a great walking tour of Sonoma Plaza with four stops for food and wine. I had expected it would be fun, but it far exceeded my expectations. We learned about some Sonoma history, about the beautiful trees in the square, about some of the architecture. The stops for food were all amazing. I loved them all. Our guide, Teresa, was knowledgeable but also warm and personable. If in Sonoma, this is a top notch way to sample things.
