Nick our guide was brilliant. The vineyards we attended provided different experiences and the hosts were informative and welcoming. The wine tasting was excellent.

Getting picked up at our hotel was a benefit that bigger tours didn’t offer. The 3 tastings were all good. The hour lunch break on our own was a nice. The choice of whether to take the ferry back from Sausalito or ride back in the van was great. Most were tipsy or tired but we took the ferry.

This was a perfect way to experience California wine country. The tour group was small which made our visits to three area wineries intimate and personable. There was no pressure to buy either, which was nice. Our guide Anthony was entertaining and informative. It was like have a family member take us around the area. The van is a bit cozy, but it was such a pleasure getting to know the others on board. Highly recommend, especially if you're looking for a day away from San Francisco.

danicN8383XM

The tour and guide were amazing. Anthony was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide, with two out of the three wineries worth a visit. The bus was clean and comfortable and water available during the trip. Anthony's lunch recommendations were spot on. Absolutely have no hesitation in recommending this to others when they visit San Francisco. We had a great time - Dani C.

My husband and I had a fantastic day. Our group was quite varied. We were a couple, there was a family with adult children and a group of young women celebrating a 30th birthday. We all enjoyed it. Marc was a terrific host, very knowledgeable and lots of fun. The three wineries we visited were different from each other and all were good. I would definitely recommend this tour!!!

Victoria_K

The guide was very nice and very friendly! We enjoyed our trip a lot! Some things that could be improved - about the actual wine tasting - we expected a higher quality wines. That’s the reason we booked a more expensive tour, to get a high-end wine tasting from the selected boutique wineries. And only last winery we visited totally met our expectations. Overall experience was very positive.

Martin K

Fully recommend this tour! We had four days in San Francisco and decided to do a day trip out of the city for one of the days. It was really nice to see some small towns and countryside. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, and very outgoing and fun. He made the tour extra enjoyable. As for the wine, im far from am experienced wine drinker, but for what its worth i really enjoyed most of what we tasted.

Tim_S

Excellent tour, sunshine, good wine, and good company. A great day out and worth the extra cost for a small group. Tour was made even better by the tour guide Anthony's in-depth knowledge of both San Francisco, and the winery's we visited , all delivered in his entertaining and easy going style.
