My husband and I went on this tour during our honeymoon in San Francisco. Our driver Paul was not only on time for the pickup, but was early! Because it was just the two of us we got to choose our own personalized itinerary. We had the choice of the wineries we could go to and where we wanted to go for lunch. We were not familiar with the Napa and Sonoma region so we let Paul choose what he thought would best suit what we were looking for. By the end of the day we ended up going to 6 wineries and to the Schellville Grill for lunch which was featured on the show Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Out of the six wineries that we went to we only had to pay for our wine tasting at one of them. Although the wine tour included pickup and drop off at our hotel, Paul let us know that we had the option to be dropped off in Sausalito. He even recommended a restaurant for us to go to where we could see San Francisco from our table. It was a perfect and romantic way to end such an incredible day. Paul is an extremely friendly and knowledgeable driver. The wine was fabulous but it was the way we were treated and the Jeep experience that really made this a personal and memorable experience! I would HIGHLY recommend this wine tour.

Our driver was very friendly, funny and knowledgeable. He tailored the tour specifically to our wine tastes and took us to some very friendly (and tasty!) wineries. In all, we made 6 wineries that day and bought 7 bottles of wine, and the driver gave us a bottle himself when he learned we were on our honeymoon. We were lucky enough to be the only two on the tour. It was pouring rain most of the day, but the driver was spot on in his winery selections and in his lunch suggestion. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who loves wine and especially people who want to learn about wine tasting.

This tour was amazing, my boyfriend and I had a fantastic time. It was just us two and our tour guide so we were able to pick how long we wanted to stay at the different locations. Sonoma was breathtaking and our tour guide was wonderful, he was very knowledgeable and such a great guy. It was trip well never forget.

What a wonderful trip. The only thing that would have made it better would have been some better shocks on the jeep for all the bumps (got a little rough). The guides knowledge and foresight on which wineries to visit and which to avoid was invaluable. Would have loved to have enjoyed the complete tour but I became ill from something I consumed at lunch and we had to return to SF. Even with that, the trip was fantastic. My favorite was the Robledo winery. This winery makes you feel like you are a friend from the moment you walk through the door. Loved them all so much I joined their wine club (something I thought I would never do). The most pleasant surprise was when Mr. Robledo walked in during the tasting (so quietly he almost went unnoticed by me) and was gracious enough to allow me to have my photo taken with him. This determined man came to the US as an illegal immigrant and worked at a winery as a picker I believe. He is an amazing man with a fascinating story and someone I feel fortunate to have met. Even though it was for such a brief time. Everyone going to Sonoma should make this winery a priority, if for nothing more than to meet this warm and wonderful family and hear their story. I hope to return to San Francisco in the next year or so and will make a special trip to the Robledo winery to say hello. Thanks again for an amazing trip.

My partner and I spent 8 days experiencing the San Francisco area on numerous tours and your jeep trip through the wine country was definitely a highlight. Our guide was very personable and informative and tailored the day to our wishes with a few additional pleasant surprises. This is a must for anyone visiting the area.
