A Wine Lover's Paradise - Enjoy Both Napa and Sonoma Valley's in One Day!

All Wine Tasting Fees INCLUDED in tour price!

Unwind and soak up the stunning scenery as we journey north into Napa and Sonoma Valley, two of the most prized wine regions of Northern California. During your venture, enjoy wine tasting and exclusive estate tours of three of our favored wineries: Madonna Estate, Sutter Home, and Sebastiani Vineyards.

Since 1922, the Bartolucci Family has consistently created a perfect marriage of grapes and wine at Madonna Estate. Located in the world-renowned Carneros region, an area known for its fertile lands and cool climate, the Bartolucci family has found success with their organically grown grapes and Estate Bottled wines. In addition to practicing natural farming methods, they also combine traditional and modern wine making techniques. As the third-oldest wine making family in the Napa Valley, it is important to them that they continue the commitment to farm naturally and preserve the wine making traditions of past generations.

When the Trinchero family bought the Sutter Home Winery in 1948, they had a vision, a passion, and apparently, an insight into consumer tastes. In the early 1970s, Sutter Home started a trend when the company created White Zinfandel, introducing a new, sweeter flavor profile. They changed the way Americans enjoyed wine by offering them high-quality varietals at an affordable price. By the 1980s and 1990s, Sutter Home became a household name and the second largest independent family-run winery in the United States.

During a lunch break, we'll make a stop at Historic Downtown Sonoma Square where you will enjoy leisure time to explore. Both destinations afford a wonderful variety of eclectic dining options and one-of-a-kind boutique shops and local art galleries.

With over a century of wine making experience in Sonoma, Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery focuses on crafting small lots of premium wines from Sonoma County. Today, Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery advances its record of acclaim under the guidance of vintner and entrepreneur Bill Foley, who acquired the winery in 2008. As part of Foley Family Wines, Sebastiani will maintain its commitment to producing singular wines from the appellations of Sonoma County.

At each winery, you will spend approximately 1-hour for tour and tasting. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a scenic drive over the Golden Gate Bridge on your way back into San Francisco.

The Wine Country Tour is approximately 9 hours and is available daily at 9:00 am. The price of the tour includes the wine tasting and touring fees at each winery. Wineries subject to change on holidays or due to special events.

Lunchtime is allotted between wineries. (Winery schedule subject to change pending private events at wineries). Lunch cost not included.

Optional Lunch Add-on:
Add lunch onto your day trip with a stop at a local favorite right in the middle of the historic Square in Downtown Sonoma. Enjoy items from a variety of Californian-inspired dishes ranging from Sandwiches, Pasta, and Seafood.
(Optional lunch - $30.00 per person; Includes appetizer, entree, beverage, tax & gratuities.)

"This company knowingly violates local laws."

This company violated local laws on our tour including driving into Alamo square. It is illegal to drive passenger vehicles with more than 8 seats within a block of Alamo square. Our tour bus not only ignored the official drop off zone established by the 5 year old law but actually drove into Alamo square proper. There are plenty of tour company's in San Francisco, please choose one that doesn't purposefully ignore the laws and disrespect the city and its residents.

The Tower Tours pickup turned up at our accommodation exactly on time. Good start. Coit Tower and Lombard Street glimpses were afforded us on our way to TT's office at the corner of Beach and Market at Fisherman's Wharf. The tour to Muir Woods left right on time. We had a 10-minute stop on the North Side of the Golden Gate Bridge for a photo-op. Not much to see through the grey rolling fog, but them's the breaks. The Giant Redwoods in the canyon at Muir Woods are superb, grand, majestic (*consults thesaurus*). Thanks, President Roosevelt for signing the area over as a national monument! Do yourself a favour when in this part of the world, and take the Tower Tours bus trip to Muir Woods. We chose to leave the bus at Sausalito and join the (hundreds of) other tourists taking in this quaint little town. (The tour option was to either get off at Sausalito and catch a ferry, or stay on the bus to return to San Francisco. We did the former.) There are interesting little shops and galleries worth a look in Susalito. There are plenty of eating options. All packed full, of course. The ferry trip back to San Francisco gives the chance of some lovely bay and bridge views, as well as views of Alcatraz. Be warned, you will share the ferry ride with dozens of cyclists. Be prepared, it may be standing-room only on a late return to San Francisco from Sausalito. A great day. Well worth it. Friendly, funny, informative guide.

"Muir Woods tour exactly what I needed"

Had a fantastic afternoon on the Muir Woods afternoon tour. The bus driver was knowledgeable and witty and made the drive up there and back a pleasure. Of course Muir Woods is wonderful, but the service and comfort there and back and the ease of entry to the park was a wonderful bonus. Thank you, will do this tour again next time I want to go there!

Tour started on time. after about an hour drive to Muir Woods which included a basic tour of San Francisco we were given 1.5 hours in the woods. Would have liked more time but it was advertised this way. There is a brief stop in Sausalito if you want to get off the bus and stay there, but then you need to find your own way back to san francisco
