Description

from Wine Lover's Tour
Love fine wine? You’ll experience some of the world’s finest on our wine-tasting tour of Napa and Sonoma Valley wineries. Not a wine expert? Not to worry! You’ll have a great time, meet some really cool people, see amazing sights and learn all about fruits of the vine that have made valleys north of San Francisco so famous.

And you’ll love this: We pick you up right at your hotel in downtown San Francisco.

You’ll leave the bustle of The City behind as you cross the Golden Gate Bridge or Bay Bridge heading for wine country. As you roll through wine country, you’ll experience the many microclimates and see the soil types that combine to produce some of the world’s best winemaking grapes – Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc.

Along the way, keep your eyes open for endangered critters that make a home in the area, especially near the Napa-Sonoma Marsh. You may see a California brown pelican or a black rail, a Ridgway’s rail or a Suisun shrew. The lush hillsides of the wine country are home to black-tailed deer, coyotes, red-tailed hawks and even a mountain lion.

Fast-forward to today, and you’ll see a beautiful region that produces some of the world’s best wines. Don’t just take our word for it. You can look it up! At the Paris Wine Tasting of 1976, a contest conceived by a British wine merchant with French judges, California wines won best-in-the-world honors.

You won’t be asked to do any blind-tasting comparisons during your four-winery tour. Instead, just remember these five easy wine-tasting steps: See, swirl, sniff, sip, swallow. Repeat. Now you’ve got it!

Enjoy a delicious picnic lunch with your tour companions and try out a variety of food-wine pairings and see what delights your taste buds. Whether you consider yourself a wine connoisseur or a wine-tasting novice, you’ll be warmed by the good company of the people in your tour and your friendly vineyard hosts. After lunch, the tour will be customized to the groups’ desires by visit two more requested wineries (fees not included).

Though Napa and Sonoma wineries are the stars of this tour, your Expedition Leader will make sure to stop on the way back so you can take some amazing selfies in front of the Golden Gate Bridge or Bay Bridge before arriving back at your hotel.

"ABSOLUTELY AMAZING EXPERIENCE ON THE DAY IN THE BAY VIA ALCATRAZ TOUR!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 07, 2019 NEW
Highly recommend this tour! Very professional, well organised, and a great introduction to the key sights of San Francisco! Special mention to the guide of our afternoon city tour, Doug. Doug easily made this day trip the best tourist experience we’ve had over the past month and a half while in America! Our tour guide Doug was incredibly knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and so passionate! The tour was incredibly informative and my partner and I were stunned with the depth of his cultural and historical knowledge and found his own advice, tips, and tricks to be very helpful! Would highly suggest taking this tour at the start of your San Fran stay as it familiarises you with the entire area and covers so much! Had such an amazing day and the whole trip was very worthwhile! Once again, massive thank you to Doug for making our San Francisco stay so memorable!

"Yosemite 2 Day Unguided Tour from San Francisco"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 28, 2018 NEW
Well organised and executed tour to Yosemite from San Francisco. We picked Extranomical over other tour options and weren't disappointed, dont be fooled by their outdated website. Narration during the journey was insightful and humourous (Jim in particular). Tour stops included key locations but also allowed plenty of time to explore from the village. Good value and well recommended.

"Unforgettable giant trees and yosomite valley"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 23, 2018
Took Yosemite trip on 11 nov. Driver GINO helpful and know legible. In the onward journey showed audio video info on tv regarding Yosemite. On the way back when everyone was very tired played soothing music. As a bonus saw golden gate bridge at night by a small detour on ANGEL ISLAND on way back. Gino gave proper stop for buying food on onward as well as return journey. Left san Fransisco at 6:30 and returned at 9:30. Spent 2 hrs in giant sequa Grove and 4 hrs in YOSOMITE valley. Unfortunately all falls except bridal was dry. Scope for improvement: provide map of walkway in sequa groove. Their is a slight detour and tourist tend to get confused. The walk in 1 mile down hill with 400feet loss of height. Thus on the way back it is a steep climb. Again on Yosemite valley as 1st timers we were lost as to what to do. WHILE THERE IS A FREE SHUTTLE WHICH RUNS ROUND AND ROUND A MAP SHOULD HAVE BEEN PROVIDED( AS DONE BY SOME COMPANIES) showing point of interest with corresponding g bus stops. MORE OVER AT SOME PLACES THE ON WARD STOP 3 WAS JUST ACROSS THE ROAD TO THE RETURN STOP 10. SO IF YOU KNOW THEN JUST CROSSING THE ROAD SAVES 20 MINS OF WAITING TIME
