Lackluster for the money

Our tour started at 12 but we had to meet at 1130 so everyone could be picked up. Sonoma was recently out of power because of the potential for wildfires caused by down power lines. So instead of being able to get lunch in Sonoma, we picked up food at a Whole Foods before we left town. Fast forward to 1:30/1:45 and we finally made it to our first winery, Jacuzzi. After the first wine tasting, we were able to take 30 minutes or so to walk around the vineyard which was nice. Afterwards, we went to Homewood Winery which is VERY small. We were able to eat our lunch during the wine tasting but there wasn't much to do there so we got back in the van for the ride home. On the way back, we stopped to get pictures with the Golden Gate bridge. We were supposed to get back close to 5pm but didn't get dropped off until 545 and we were the first to get dropped so I'm sure it was later for the others. Overall, I'd say the trip was a little expensive for what we got. We were only actually at wineries for 2.5-3 hours and the whole trip was over 6 hours.

Jerry our driver, was a most efficient guide to everything wine. The weather was great. The wine tasted of heavenly perfection. Make sure you ask for Jerry as your guide.
Steven knows Sonoma!
, Aug 2018
We had a great time on our half day wine tour yesterday. Steve picked up us at our hotel and made us feel at home. He is very knowledgeable about the wines and the incredible history of San Francisco. Our group was an amazing mixture of people from around the world. Steven also took us to an incredible lookout over the bay. We had the best time and recommend this trip.

Quite enjoyable. The driver/tour guide was great, pointing out all kinds of things buildings, historical sites, etc on the way from my San Francisco hotel throughout Sonoma on the tour. I was fortunate enough as a single traveler to also be part of a very friendly group on the tour.

This tour was a problem as soon as I booked it. I was notified in August that the tour was going to start at 6PM. I questioned the time because the winery's would be closed and they said it was correct. Finally it must have sunk in and they corrected the start back to 12 Noon. They told me we would be picked up at the Sheraton even tho we would be arriving by cruise ship. We went to the Sheraton and 2 other couples were there too. The van came and we were the last ones picked up. One couple split between the front passenger seat and a 2nd row seat. The other couple and us had to SQUEEZE into the last row. Everyone in row had to get out for last person to get out. WHAT A SAFETY AND FIRE TRAP. We learned on the tour that 2 girls from our cruise booked this tour that morning and were picked up at the cruise ship, so they had nice roomy seats. The tour went to 2 wineries but really only 1 was a winery. The 2nd was a farm and had 1 room with 1 person operating it and he kept moving to new groups as they arrived, so we were treated as 2nd class. Tasting fee was not included at the farm stand. For 85 a person, not worth it. This isn't the first time that we have had problems with VIATOR, so it will be our LAST.

Not overly impressed. First winery we stopped wasn't great - had to ask for wine samples, didn't explain wines, and seemed like they were only interested in customers willing to buy a membership into their wine club. Second winery was great.

We have used Viator all over the world and we have been so pleased. This was by far the worst experience we have ever had: The tour guide was not interested in his tourist but talked at us the entire time. He took us to two wineries one that was pleasant but with bad tasting wine and the second one was a wine tour zoo with kids and dogs and no teaching about anything. We sat outside in the hot sun and we did not know what we were drinking because we had no guidance whats so ever. My husband and I love good wine and we had the best Viator in Portland , Oregon last summer with a boxed lunch and we went to 3 lovely wineries. We even had to pay extra for our first winery in Sonoma because it was not included. We were very disappointed with this tour.

The tour was really nice. Bill our guide and driver was excellent. Our group of 8 were the only ones schedule for the tour that day, so Bill spent extra time giving us stops at various sites, he even gave us a scenic tour through Sausalito which was beautiful.

I was booked to go on the half day Sonoma wine tour from San Francisco on Saturday at 12pm. I was at the location fishermans wharf at this time and waited for 1 hour. No bus showed up and I was not given any number to contact with regards to additional information. I tried to call many different numbers via Viator and was just being put on hold only to be cut off several times by rude and unmannerly representatives. I spent 80 on this tour and was not given any information or contact numbers. DO NOT RECOMMEND.
