Such a fun day!

I’m spending 5 days in San Francisco while my husband attends a conference here, so I thought a day trip out to Sonoma for some wine tasting would be fun. Marc, the tour guide (and owner), picked me up promptly at my hotel in Union Square, and we then proceeded to pick up a family of nine at another hotel. His vehicle was clean and in great shape, and he had a cooler of water for us. It was a clear and beautiful day, so I was thrilled that we stopped at the Golden Gate Bridge for photos before driving on to Sonoma. The entire day was a fabulous experience! Marc is very knowledgeable and shared interesting facts about the history of San Francisco, as well as Sonoma and wine making. He was funny, kind, attentive, and did everything he could to make the tour comfortable and enjoyable for us. We visited three small, boutique wineries. The wines were all good, and I enjoyed tasting them all. We were also able to meet the owners, which is always nice. The family of nine was a fun and friendly group, and they made the day even more enjoyable. Our last stop was in Sausalito, to stretch our legs or to do a little looking around. This stop was only 30 minutes, and it was dark, so not a lot to report. I would say that if you want to see Sausalito, you should just take an Uber or ferry, and spend the day there, as it looked like a great place to shop and dine. Overall, this is a great tour, and I highly recommend it for a wonderful break from the city. Marc is a terrific tour guide, and it’s clear that he loves what he does for a living, and he does it well. You won’t be disappointed.

Great Tour! On account of our Tour guide Marc we had a fantastic experience with delicious wine and welcoming hosts. Can recommend it a 100% and will definitely do it again next time. Thank you also to Peter, Nilu and Courtney for explaining so extensively and passionately about wine. We loved it!

Amazing Time in Sonoma!

I love wine but my husband is more of a beer guy. This trip was absolutely wonderful. All of the wines were so delicious and the guide and people at the wineries taught us so much. Sonoma is so beautiful and it was 20 degrees warmer there than in San Francisco! Wow!
