Full description

On this full-day tour you will spend 1-hour walking in the shadows of the world's tallest trees before learning about the history, craft, and science of winemaking in California’s lovely wine country.

Begin your tour with a visit to Muir Woods National Monument (or an alternative park) ahead of the crowds. Stroll along pristine nature trails and look out for native coastal ferns, clover, squirrels, foxes, and even deer.

Explore the Sonoma and Napa Valleys. Winemaking began here in California's wine country more than 100 years ago. Visit a vineyard, included as part of the day’s excursion, and enjoy a guided tour through a boutique winery, dependent on availability. Afterward, visit Napa Valley for even more tastings. The 3 wineries you will visit on this trip represent a variety of grapes, specialties, winemaking styles, and size of operation, giving you a well-rounded wine country experience and lots of new favorite wines to add to your shopping list.  Your lunch will be a gourmet sit-down meal. Sit together with your group for a table-side presentation of local wines paired with each expertly prepared course of Californian cuisine.

Make one final stop on the way back to San Francisco from the wine country at a scenic look-out point with sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, San Francisco skyline, Alcatraz, and the Bay Bridge where you can get great photos.

When I first booked this tour, I thought it looked kind of sketchy and maybe even like a scam. I was pleasantly surprised!! It was a long day, but well worth it!! We started in the Muir Woods and got there early enough, that we'd beat most other large tour groups there and it allowed for a more private Muir Woods experience. The first winery we stopped at in Sonoma gave an extremely thorough explanation of wine making and what goes into producing wines' taste. After, we stopped in Sonoma town square for lunch. We preordered the penne pasta and the meal was amazing with the selected wine pairings. Next, we stopped at two more wineries in Napa. For the tasting fees being included in this tour, we really couldn't have asked for a better way to experience the infamous valleys' wines. Roman was our guide; he did an excellent job of keeping us entertained. Some guests had been stuck in traffic with potential to miss the tour and he re-routed their uber so they'd make it. Amazing. Worth it!!

We did our Napa Valley tour with Anthony as our driver and guide. Anthony did an amazing job. He is funny, knowledgeable, and his driving is very safe. The winery we visited were interesting, since it got us out of the more commercial places and we discovered new smaller place with a personal approach to the wine making process. I also highly recommend the gourmet lunch, even if lunch hour is spend in an area with multiple choices, the gourmet meal is worth every penny. The food is excellent, wine pairing is perfect and service is fast and friendly. Overall, that day was a complete success, thanks to Anthony and the personnel at extranomical tour!!!

allting var super förutom när vi skulle bli upphämtade på morgonen. Vi var på plats 10 minuter före, efter 20 minuter fick vi ett samtal från arrangören som så att vi fick ta en taxi till en annan upphämtningsplats för vi hade inte varit på plats i tid sa chauffören .
