Smooth process!

When i originally booked the tour, i clicked the wrong link. I booked through a company that only does personal group tours. The guy called me back when he noticed it was only one person and assisted me with booking this tour. That was great and so nice of him! The check in process was smooth. Be sure to sign your waiver before getting to the bus to expedite your check-in. I also grabbed a quick breakfast to bring with me since the tour leaves out so early in the morning. Many others did the same thing. Eating on the bus was permitted. For the most part, there was social distancing on the bus, although there were far more people than I expected to see on this tour. The guide Antonio was awesome and you can tell he loves his job. He even offered to take pictures for solo travelers and groups, so everyone could be in their own pictures. From start to finish, the tour was informative, fast paced, and we enjoyed wine from a few different wineries. In my opinion, the last stop was the best because the host was generous with the wine samples. The other stops were not so generous with the samples and it was clear that selling bottles or memberships were their main objectives. No pressure to buy from any of the wineries, but more of an unwelcoming feel unless you were signing up. The lunch stop in Downtown Sonoma was great! Its an adorable and quaint town. I ate at the highly recommended Mexican restaurant, but coming from Texas, I was not impressed with the food. All in all, I would definitely take this tour again, mainly for the scenery and to socialize with other wine lovers.

All in all, it was a great tour. The host Antonio is super fun and lively and made the transportation a breeze. The only thing they lost one star from me was the wineries themselves. I would say the best and most fun winery was the first one we went to, Roche Winery. They were so lively and social and fun to be around and hit all the check marks as far as a wine tasting and the social aspect of just hosting guests perfectly. (ended up buying three of their bottles) The other 2 wineries after that just felt like we were there to taste their wines and nothing more, not much of a social atmosphere.

We had our tour on Saturday Oct 17th. Our tour guide was extremely friendly and we felt safe being socially distant from everyone while sitting on the bus. All of the wineries were absolutely beautiful and look forward to doing another wine tour soon in Napa valley!

Best wineries are in Sonoma

The bus ride was very nice and comfortable. The wineries were gorgeous, but the best reside in Sonoma. The only complaint was that we were supposed to go to a different winery that we ended up at. All in all, a wonderful experience that everyone should have!!

Thank you for your review. Due to the chaotic nature surrounding covid-19 and the fires we have had to be agile with switching partner wineries. Our apologies for the switching of wineries.
