We had SUCH a fun time on this tour - maybe too much fun because I lost my wallet. Thankfully, the tour's bus driver checked all the wineries for me and found and returned my wallet. The service was exceptional and we loved our tour guide. Thanks for an amazing day!

We had a great time at Roche! Very funny hostesses & very generous in the proportion of wine given. We also liked the time spent for lunch. We didn’t get much time at the second one at all. I know we had a time schedule but it was tight. Wish we had more time & wine! PS don’t expect any cheese! It’s illegal!

Marco was a great tour guide! This also doubled as mini city tour as he told us little tidbits and facts while we were driving around to pick up other passengers. The first winery we went to was Roche which was in Sonoma and was beautiful! second and third were in Napa (Madonna estate and kieu hoang) the first 2 places were generous with pours and we got about 5-6 tastings but the last one wasn’t as much and wasn’t as good (they were relatively new I guess). Thankfully Marco agreed to call it a day and we left about 30 min early and got back to the city before 6! It was nice to not have to do any of the planning, definitely set aside an entire day for this though and stay hydrated! Our group was fun and everyone was good about keeping their masks on around each other. Thank you for a great day and tour!

This was a really fun tour, the tour guide Marco was great. The wineries give you a lot so it was definitely worth the money and it was great but having to plan.

Our partner wineries have stuck by our side through thick and thin! We wouldn't have a tour if not for them honoring our agreements. Our goal, is to offer a stress free, relaxing, entertaining & informative experience that is worth the money and your time! The support you have shown goes beyond just Gray Line of San Francisco. The local communities and businesses appreciate you coming to San Francisco. Thank you & take care!

When i originally booked the tour, i clicked the wrong link. I booked through a company that only does personal group tours. The guy called me back when he noticed it was only one person and assisted me with booking this tour. That was great and so nice of him! The check in process was smooth. Be sure to sign your waiver before getting to the bus to expedite your check-in. I also grabbed a quick breakfast to bring with me since the tour leaves out so early in the morning. Many others did the same thing. Eating on the bus was permitted. For the most part, there was social distancing on the bus, although there were far more people than I expected to see on this tour. The guide Antonio was awesome and you can tell he loves his job. He even offered to take pictures for solo travelers and groups, so everyone could be in their own pictures. From start to finish, the tour was informative, fast paced, and we enjoyed wine from a few different wineries. In my opinion, the last stop was the best because the host was generous with the wine samples. The other stops were not so generous with the samples and it was clear that selling bottles or memberships were their main objectives. No pressure to buy from any of the wineries, but more of an unwelcoming feel unless you were signing up. The lunch stop in Downtown Sonoma was great! Its an adorable and quaint town. I ate at the highly recommended Mexican restaurant, but coming from Texas, I was not impressed with the food. All in all, I would definitely take this tour again, mainly for the scenery and to socialize with other wine lovers.

Thank you for the time you took to review and rate your experience. Without a doubt Antonio loves his job! He is and artist when it comes to showing guests a great time. We will pass along the valuable perspective you afforded us so we can continue to improve our tour experience. Again thank you and Happy Holidays!
