Beautiful Sonoma - Enjoyed learning the history of beautiful Sonoma... Abby was great!! Friendly & very knowledgable. I would've liked a little more wine to be included for the price (especially on the cheese stop). Only one stop had wine. But overall a great experience!!

Perfect sampling of Sonoma's best food and drinks and very entertaining! - Our tour guide, Abby, made this tour such fun! It was an ideal blend of getting to sample some of Sonoma's best products along with hearing about Sonoma's history. Starting with tasting Vella cheese samples (and visiting their retail shop, where they had vacuum-sealed cheeses at reasonable prices to purchase and take home), we then had the best "Cal-Mex" food and a margarita! We then sampled amazing flavored olive oils and balsamic vinegars at Figone's (we came back after the tour to buy some), tasted delectable wines at Highway 12, and finished with our choice of a chocolate truffle at Wine Country Chocolates. It was a perfect way to get to know Sonoma. My husband and I absolutely loved this very personalized tour!

Perfect afternoon! - A really fun way to spend the day, learn about Sonoma’s history, taste some delicious foods & drinks, and make some new friends! Abby is a fantastic guide who immediately set the tone for a fun & friendly afternoon! The icing on the cake is the photo album she puts together at the end of her tours as a wonderful memento of an enjoyable afternoon!

Great way to start your vacation - The tour guide and tour content was fantastic! She was friendly and knowledgeable and really seemed to enjoy her job. The pictures were a fantastic touch and we loved meeting the people in our group. I was a little disappointed with the amount of food on the tour. I expected more of a small plates progressive lunch but only two stops were seated and only one plated food on the tour. The others were standing taste “shoportunities” which were fun but not what I was expecting. Tour guide also gave personal restaurant and activity recommendations which was a fantastic addition to our trip.
