Wine Country Full Day (Sonoma & Napa Valley)
Your visit to Northern California would not be complete without a visit to its world-famous wine country! This Full Day Wine Country Tour takes you to the best of North America’s premium wine making regions, Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley.
Along the way you will cross the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Marin County and the Carneros District, and you will visit Sonoma Historic Town Plaza. Learn all about the rich art and history of Sonoma and Napa Valley’s wine making culture where each winery has a unique story of how it became part of California's famous Wine Country.
Your tour begins in San Francisco, heading through the Marina District and the Presidio, and crossing the Golden Gate Bridge before stopping at North Vista Point for a brief photo stop with breathtaking views of the San Francisco skyline. Taking in the scenery in Marin County, we enter the Wine Country in the southern region of Carneros, heading further into the charming town of Sonoma. In Sonoma and Napa Valley you will visit between 3 to 4 wineries, spanning from mass production vineyards to smaller boutique wineries. After a full day of relaxation and wine tasting among the vineyards and rolling hills, we head back to San Francisco between 5pm and 6pm.
Your tour will be aboard a luxury minibus or coach. We try to keep group sizes to around 50, which gives us more flexibility and makes for a much more pleasant experience. Wine tasting is included in the price (for 3 wineries), as well as time for a lunch stop, which you enjoy in a beautiful outdoor setting, usually at a winery.
The highlight of this tour is a visit to three to four wineries in Napa Valley or Sonoma: Guests enjoy the opportunity to experience, first hand, the care and craftsmanship that goes into each bottle of their favorite California Wines. Relax in the comfort of your luxury minivan as you are escorted in and around the winemaking Mecca of North America. You will visit Napa Valley & Sonoma’s most famous wineries with each of them offering a distinct wine-tasting experience that you will never forget.
