It was fun! Jeffrey was super knowledgeable and engaging. The Buhman winery was my favorite. I would recommend it.

We had such an amazing tour with Geoffrey! He was extremely knowledgeable and personable - an overall great person to spend the day with. The wineries that we went to were small, boutique wineries, and we were able to meet some of the owners. We really enjoyed all three! The company is professional and clean (and has great procedures for safety during this pandemic). I will be recommending this tour and hope to go again in the future! Thank you for such a great day!

It was just us and our tour guide, Ellie, which made for a special and personalized tour! COVID and all that. But our guide Ellie made it very special for us and we got to know three great wineries in Sonoma as well as Napa. Great lunch spent with our guide as well. The wineries were all great and very welcoming, non-pretentious, and each had spectacular wines at very affordable prices. All in all a very nice all day tour! Would do it again for sure!

The host "Jeffery" was fantastic,,,, prompt, full of life and details about the sites we were to see,,,,once on site at each of the wineries, each of the host explained in detail what we were to experience...all the way around a great experience that I would recommend to family and friends

Our tour guide, Dylan, was the best! He made our tour fun and interesting. We loved his music choices for the ride, his jokes, and the information he shared with us as we rode from San Francisco to Sonoma and back. The picnic lunch in downtown Sonoma was a great choice. I highly recommend this tour if you want to experience the small family wineries and downtown Sonoma!!!

We had a great time on this tour. The wineries were small family owned and they gave you around 6 tastings at each one. The time spent in Sonoma Square was my favorite. Small shops, restaurants and bars a plenty. You could spend a few hours there. The weather was beautiful to walk around the small park or sit and take a cap nap which is what I did :-

This was a great tour to smaller family wineries which was so cool to hear the stories of how they began and taste their wines (some not even distributed to stores). The tour guide was great and it was so convenient to get picked up at our hotel and dropped off. It was a bummer that it was so foggy when we left San Fran so we couldn't see the bridge but the driver took up to a nearby town and we saw and heard the stories around the house boats.I recommend this tour if you have a day to spend in wine country and it beat having to rent a car and drive so we both could drink!

We had so much fun with Ned, our driver, and the other passengers in our small group (10 total). The wineries we visited were beautiful, the people friendly and knowledgeable, and the wine and food delicious! Would highly recommend this tour, especially if you love Sonoma wine (like I do). Excellent value for the money too!

This was a fantastic tour! We went to some smaller vineyards which made the tastings more intimate. Skip, our tour guide, was funny, knowledgeable, and made the day truly enjoyable. I accidentally left something on the tour bus after he dropped us off at our hotel, and he went out of his way to return it to me at my hotel on his own time. I highly recommend this tour - you'll love it!
