Description

from Ultimate Wine Tasting Tour to Napa & Sonoma Valley
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.

Lunch time 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.)

"Muir Woods and Sausalito/Ferry"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

I loved that we were picked up at our hotel. But they make you go back to the office area to pay for the tour. I feel it would be much better if they offer these tours at the hotel that you should be able to pay for them there. Then whne you are picked up the tour begins. Our tour guide was very mouthy. I appreciate his knowledge of the areas we drove through and to, but he should keep his personal political and other views to himself. We are on a tour and do not need that. Muir Woods is a must see! Loved it. He highly recommended stopping in Sausalito and going back on the ferry but he wasn't very clear on what ferry to take back. Yes you guessed it we came back on wrong ferry. We had 20 minutes to get back to the office to catch the 5:30 bus back to our hotel. However, we made it. Sausalito is beautiful but really nothing to do there.

This 3.5 hours tour , $63 per person, of Muir Woods was great. Our tour guide and driver, Adolfo, was the best. Great sense of humour, kept us entertained and informed- made the trip, just hope you get him! The Redwoods were spectacular and the setting tranquil and a fabulous way to spend an hour and a half strolling through this wood. This is a must do. Highly recommend this tour with Tower.

very professional tour. Hotel pick up was on time and check in to the office was slick. Patrick was our driver and was brilliant. We laughed almost all the way to Muir Woods... He's full of personality and interesting facts about the City and tour destination. I would recommend Tower Tours and the Muir Woods trip.

Adolfo E was our driver who took a lot of trouble to provide information relevant to each area, planned the departure time to avoid traffic and generally very helpful. His recommendations for lunch in Mobterey were excellent - the Fish Hopper. A long day but with limited time it was a good choice.

My dad booked our family the Grand City Tour with Tower Tours. These tours are done in a chartered style bus-thank goodness because San Fran can get a little chilly to windy to sit in an open bus. This started out with Willie who picked us up at our hotel with the best personality ever! The pickup time was at 1:15pm, but he was there about 1:00pm which we loved the promptness. Then we get dropped off at Tower Tours headquarters to start a tour around the city to some of the TOP sights-George was our Tour Guide and he was also wonderful. He is so knowledgable about the history of San Fran and its sights. Since the weather cooperated we were able to go to Twin Peaks!!! When the day is over we are dropped off back at the hotel-how great!!! This was a great day for all the ages in our group (from teen to early 70s)! My mom and I loved the tour with them so much we booked their Napa and Sonoma Wine Country Tour. Although this was an all-day tour, it was wonderfully put together too. On this day, Patrick was our guide and he also gave great details into the places we visited. His personality was warm and friendly. We sat right up front and when we went through the Golden Gate Bridge I was able to get good pics! It was really fun...when we go back we will do the Muir Woods and Saulsilito Tours!
