Passengers will be picked up at Bay Area hotels in the early morning. Today we will first head to Muir Woods National Monument. This unique park is significant for being an old-growth coastal redwood forest, one of the few left in the area. After taking in this natural wonder, we will begin our wine tour.

We will make four tasting stops: two wineries in Sonoma County, one at the historic Sonoma Plaza or Healdsburg Plaza, and one more in Napa County, spending 45 minutes to one hour at each location. All of the wine tastings at the wineries are complimentary and guests will have a chance to try a variety of delicious wines. The Vine Alley at Sonoma Plaza stop is a bit longer, so we will have a chance to grab a bite to eat and visit additional tasting rooms (fees may apply) located around the plaza or browse the boutique shops.

At the end of the day, we will return to the departure points for dropoff. See "Depature and Return Details" for more information.

  • This tour was terrific! A enjoyable trip through the woods and three distinctly different winery visits was the perfect way to spend the day in San Francisco. Our tour guide, Ben, was knowledgeable, welcoming, and helpful. He made the day so much more enjoyable! Thanks for offering such a fun day.
