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
THE DRIVER WAS EXCELLENT MADE EVEN BETTER BECAUSE HE WAS BORN IN THE SAME HOSPITAL AS ME IN PORTSMOUTH UK; A REAL POMPEY BOY !!! THE GROUP WAS SMALL ON THE WHOLE FRIENDLY; THE VEHICLE WAS CLEAN AND TIDY; THE VENUES WE VISITED WERE WHAT WE EXPECTED; THE WEATHER WAS LOUSEY BUT THAT IS LUCK OF THE DRAW ; OVERALL A GOOD 1/2 DAY EXCURSION ; THANK YOU
This was an AMAZING tour. Not only did we get a fantastic opportunity to learn about the Sonoma area (and go to two very different vineyards), but on the way there, we got to see out of the way San Francisco and I learned so much from our experience. I would recommend this to anyone that was in the SF area!
Two winereries, knowledgeable guide, awesome scenery, great day
The driver was about 15 minutes later picking me up than my scheduled pick-up time ... and we got back later than expected at the end of the day, but that was fine with me because I didn't have any other plans the rest of the day. It didn't feel like he was pushing us along, so that was really nice. He allowed us to to get the full experience even though it took us a little longer to get going due to extenuating circumstances of multiple pick-ups, etc. It was nice seeing some small wineries and driving by all the beautiful vineyards. I feel like I learned so much about wine from the winery staff. The driver did well in making sure our group was introduced to each other since there were four different parties between the 12 of us, including two parties from out of the country. Plus, he was a wealth of information as we drove along. It was a very fun afternoon and gave me an opportunity to do some sightseeing with some other people since I was on my own. And the half day was perfect since that was all the time I had to fit in with a work conference. I got some beautiful pictures as it was a gorgeous day! Very nice memories.
Half day tour was perfect - Bill our driver was a big part of the positive experience, he was very knowledgeable and passionate. My husband and I really enjoyed the half day it was more than enough time.
This was a great day, helped by the commentary from Ken. The time spent at each winery was fine and both were enjoyable. Just one point, as a passenger I would suggest that your drivers be given water bottles with built in straws, to save the driver from the distraction of removing and replacing a screw lid whilst driving. ( this was a very hot day and it was completely understandable that Ken would require fluid) Thanks
Not the most personal vineyards but out driver Bill was an excellent guide for the day!
Quality of vineyards, excellent service by Sam in Cline and the overall knowledge of Bill, our driver.
Jerry, the tour guide, was terrific. He was very courteous and knowledge about the area, wines and wineries. We had a wonderful time and recommend this tour to everyone. For us the 5.5 hour tour was perfect. Not too long tp ruin any evening activities and just enough winery activities to keep it fun and lively.
Our guide took a potential horrible experience with a flat tire and made it work out for all. we were to go to 2 vineyards which we did despite the time constraints of the slow driving conditions. We were surprise visitors to the Viansa Vineyard which was so much better than the Cline vineyard. We were treated so well at Viansa even though they did not expect us. You need to add this as a regular.
