Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
Passengers will be picked up from central San Francisco hotels between approximately 8am and 9am, depending on the hotel location. If you are staying outside the city center, or in a private residence or vacation rental, we will find the next closest pickup point for you. Tours return to San Francisco hotels at approximately 6pm - 7pm.

Departure Time

8:00 AM
Combine a relaxing 2-day tour from San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sonoma and Napa with a visit to Muir Woods National Monument, where California’s famed redwood trees grow tall in an ancient forest. With an experienced guide, you’ll check out interesting wineries, taste premium wines and learn about the winemaking process, from vine to bottle. Plus enjoy a night of included hotel accommodation in downtown Sonoma.

Lunch on Day 2 is included, but the rest of your meals are at your own expense, giving you the flexibility to eat what you wish—wine country is known for its culinary hotspots almost as much as its wine, so you won’t be lacking in restaurant options.

Vickie M
, Jan 2018
Aaron with Incredible Adventures was our tour guide and driver. He is a San Francisco native and experienced driver. Aaron kept us advised on the pick up time, and was considerate of our personal needs as we made our way from San Francisco into the Sonoma Valley. The wineries were unique in their own way a perfect blend. The beer tasting was a perfect and unexpected pleasure. The restaurant recommendations were amazing in Sonoma and hotel was perfectly sufficient. January is the perfect time for seeing the countryside, visiting with low numbers of tourists, and personalized service. The government shutdown kept us from Muir Woods on Day 1, but given there were just the two of us on Day 2, we gave up wine tasting in the p.m., and Aaron took us to the Woods anyway. Aaron was awesome we had a great time with him. Even driving through the city to our drop off, he gave us a wonderful commentary on the homes and history. Come to San Francisco is January and enjoy the small crowds.

Both our tour guides Brian and Marie were great and very knowledgeable about the area. The 3 star rating is due to lack of information at time of booking, which indicated that all the wine tastings were included and, in reality, we had to pay for the last two wine tasting at Napa Valley which totaled to 100.00.

A great trip! Muir Woods is beautiful and Sonoma and Napa chock full of great wineries. The two days enabled free time in the evening to revisit Sonoma Square, enjoy a leisurely meal and soak up a bit more of this gorgeous town I also loved Sisters, the fashion consignment store. Over the two days I visited 8 or 9 tasting venues, did a wine education tour and sampled around 50 wines and some chocolate, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and cheese. Tomy day 1 and Chris day 2 were both super friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating guides. The bus was clean, cool and comfortable and the driving safe and smooth. The only improvement tip I would give is to provide an esky to keep all the produce fresh. Thanks Tomy and Chris, I had a really great time!

A vantagem desta viagem é que você pode participar das degustações de vinho sem se preocupar porque não dirige. No 1o dia, passamos pelo Parque Muir Woods, que tem belas árvores, por 2 vinícolas em Sonoma Robledo - a mais simples, mas também a que teve os vinhos que gostei mais de todo o pacote - e Homewood Winery e por uma cervejaria Carneros Brewing Company. Almoçamos e jantamos em Sonoma por nossa conta e dormimos no Best Western de lá hotel incluso, gostamos muito da praça central da cidade e do hotel. No dia seguinte degustação na Imagery Estate Winery lugar mais moderno e na Benziger Family, onde fizemos uma visita mais completa e fizemos uma almoço tipo piquenique incluso no pacote. À tarde visitamos a Black Stallion, a mais chique de todas, mas nessa a degustação era paga e visitamos a cidade de Napa, que tem mais opções que Sonoma, mas achei Sonoma mais gostosa. Tudo muito bonito, um clima mais quente que em São Francisco e muito vinho bom!
