With stops at two vineyards, one wine tasting, and a break for lunch included, this Sonoma wine tour should be on every busy oenophile's itinerary.

We live in San Francisco Bay and as locals this is our first time heading to the wine making region. Although we don't usually drink wine, we had a great time learning about wines, the ways to classify and taste them, and some local history of SF city and Sonoma Valley. The tour passes through two wine tasting locations: Homewood a boutique vineyard, and an optional one requiring additional fees in Sonoma town.

There were 13 people on the tour; the tour guide/driver, Ulrich, is friendly and made us feel comfortable throughout the day. Pick up was smooth across SF City at several hotels on Saturday in April.

We only went to Homewood and the staff there did a great job easing even wine tasting newbies like us into the process. Personally didn't feel the pressure to buy additional bottles; remember to bring cash to tip the driver at the end of the tour.

Ulrich was an excellent guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and kept things upbeat and fast paced. Time began to run short on our tour, and he didn't get stressed, but made sure we were moving along. The only thing I would have appreciated is a little more transparency. On the first tasting, he said it would be quicker if he paid for all of us, and we reimburse him. It would have been reassuring to see a receipt after that. I don't think he's the type of guy to do anything underhanded, but that does leave open the chance for something shady. Still, everything was great and I'd book again.

A lot of folks on the tour didn't care at all for the second winery, but I liked it just fine. Everyone agreed the first tasting was really excellent though. This is all done in town, so if you're expecting to walk among vineyards, book a different tour.

Joe was a FANTASTIC tour guide for our group's "Small Group Half Day Sonoma Wine Country Tour" in March 2022. We visited two wonderful choices of wineries, and the San Francisco history lesson and stories during the commutes from Joe was a pleasant surprise that added a lot of color to the entire venture. He is also a great driver, navigating the hills and traffic in SF that made us feel safe the entire time, while also ensuring that we all adhered to COVID-19 safety protocols. Much appreciated. 10 thumbs up from this group of 5 folks!

This was an amazing experience! Our tour guide, Ulrich was extremely knowledgeable about all things wine, and provided us with great information. I would absolutely take this tour again- it was the highlight of our trip! Between scolding my fiancé regarding putting ice in his wine, to pulling over on the side of the road teaching the group how to properly hold a wine glass, this man simply knows what he is doing. Whether it was talking wine, topography, or famous landmarks, Ulrich is a master in his trade. Can not talk more highly about our trip!

To say Ulrich was a tour guide is a vast understatement. I am a sort of wine snob and I still gained valuable knowledge. He educated us in so many ways. He had props to show us what we should have in our home, proper glass holding and swirl techniques. Do not hesitate to take this tour. It is amazing.

The half day tour was fantastic. Our driver, Randy, did an amazing job educating us on the city of San Francisco and Sonoma as well. Randy truly was the key to our enjoyment. The two wineries, Peter Cellars and Jacuzzi, were both very enjoyable experiences. I would highly recommend this tour. Thanks for a great day!

Overall this tour was good. We were picked up on time by a very kind and warm guide who drove us to Sonoma. The places we visited were very nice and the wines were pleasent and tasty. Nevertheless, this tour lacks a visit around the vineyard itself. (Maybe they offer it in summer). Additionally, they didn't offer a visit around the place where the wine is processed like in other vineyards we've been to. I would still recommend it.

Our concierge at the Hilton recommended and booked the 1/2 day Wine Country tour for us. We were to be picked up between 11:30-11:45am. After waiting outside our hotel for 1/2 hr, we called the company at 11:45. We were told they were picking up other passengers but were on their way. We called 15 minutes later and were told that we were not sitting out front and the Hilton did not exist at the address he was given. We told them to cancel the trip and he proceeded to hang up on us. We did let our concierge know what happened and recommended he not send bookings to this company.

We had a wonderful 1/2 day tour of the wine country. Kirill (the owner and our driver) 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!
