Guide was great - transport was good, overall experience was very positive. Only two suggestions - The pick ups from many different hotels wasn’t the best - I’d have said 2 pickup points would be better (union sq and fisherman’s wharf) The first winery experience wasn’t as good as the second
It was great! Steven was very knowledgeable.
Jerry was a great tour guide, very informative and fun. We liked the Homewood Winery much more than Jacuzzi. I will definitely recommend your service to any of my friends who are coming to the Bay Area.
Our tour guide was wonderful knowledgable and funny.
Jerry was very knowledgable about wine, how it's made, and the history behind wine and the surrounding region. He was polite and inviting. I would definitely recommend Jerry to others on a wine tour.
Perfect day! Our tour guide was amazing!! One of the best days ever. Thank you <3
Driver seemed a bit distracted at times and the ride was often bumpy, not very comfortable, and somewhat worrisome at times as it seemed the driver was speeding to make up for delays. On the return ride, the other parties began to sing loudly without regard to other customers not in their group, which is by no means any fault of the tour company, but our driver/tour guide did not do anything to discourage the action or consider the other groups who were not interested in partaking in the impromptu karaoke. While I appreciate that the driver may have been considering the enjoyment of those who were singing, it was very loud and uncomfortable for those of us not in that group and not interested in other people's singing on the drive back. Otherwise, the tour was informative and we enjoyed the wineries. We were not aware that gratuity for the tour guide is not included until we boarded the shuttle and saw the sign. I wish this information were made clear to me at the time of booking, and if it were I clearly missed it so it should probably be spelled out more prominently.
We did the Half Day Tour and enjoyed every bit of it. Stephen was the absolute best. He is a human encyclopedia and made our trip so fun. We went to Viansa and Homewood wineries. Enjoyed both wineries with their uniqueness. We did not go home empty handed. Would recommend the Half Day tour if you are crunched for time. We are definitely going to use a Taste of SF tour again for the full day.
The staff were great at opening up the reservation on this tour when I was trying to book 2 months prior. I love that this is a half day tour (rare to find) and provides a great overview of wine country. Jerry was great and gave us great background and tips. The 2 wineries we visited were very different and gave a very balanced experience on wine tasting and amazing scenic views.
Great guide and lovely day. Thanks.
We had a blast wine tasting with our host Jon. He was a wealth of info about the region and San Fran!
The driver was great, very friendly and nice, he gave us a lot of Information. For wine tasting I would also expect some food, not a real meal of course, but maybe cheese cubes and a little bit of prosciutto. No food at all and 10 different types of wine - no that is not like it has to be done.
I felt a little rushed everywhere we went. Would have liked more time to enjoy the vineyards
Very knowledgeable tour guide. Visited two beautiful wineries. Would definitely recommend!
It was an excellent experience. The tour guide was excellent and I was surprised with the knowledge that he has about San Francisco. The wineries visited were great. I recommend it 100% Jose Rosa – Puerto Rico
Very knowledgeable tour guide!
Enjoyed visiting 2 vineyards, very relaxing day learning about the wine country. Enjoyed some time on Sonoma square and enjoyed learning about the area from our driver!
Steve was an amazing tour guide! The wineries were great, and there was plenty of time to enjoy them. Great people, wine and experience. Thank you!
The tour was nice . Our driver was funny and know a lot about San Francisco. I’ll give 4 stars because we only visit 2 wineries instead of 3. I’ll recommend this tour. I have a nice experience. Thanks
Our driver Jerry was amazing and made our trip even better!!
Informative, pleasant drive, good group
We had a wonderful tour of the wine country. Kirill was kind, knowledgeable, and accommodating. We got to do and see so much during the half day tour. All of our requests were accommodated and we greatly appreciate their flexibility in meeting all our needs. Visiting the wineries and Sonoma town square was the highlight of our trip. Thank you!
A crucial component of any tour is the guide. Stephen was awesome.
We were very happy on our tour and well informed on everything we saw.we hope to do it again.
The entire experience was good, from the ease of booking the tour, to the punctuality of the driver to the 2 vineyards we visited. I would highly recommend this tour.
Nice tour of 2 wineries. The tour could be more streamlined if everyone met at a centralized location instead of time consuming pick up at multiple hotels.
We liked the itinerary and it was a shorter tour of 5 hours. It was also a smaller group so it was a lot more personal. Great driver as well, informative with a lot of knowledge of Sonoma and surrounding area.
We had a great half day tour to Sonoma with Bill! Bill was a great tour guide. The wineries were very nice.
Bill is brilliant
Driver was very knowledgeable and a great tour guide. Loved the wineries we visited. Small group (10 people) was very pleasant also.
This tour was excellent. Our tour guide
Bill was an excellent tour guide.
Rough ride, AC not working properly. All they did was serve wine.
This was the perfect amount of time to spend in Sonoma.
Bill was great. Very relaxing afternoon for the busy life. Canadians
