What people are saying about Sausalito

Anthony (our guide and driver) was amazing. He is super knowledgeable on wine but he also knows a lot about the San Francisco area and shared a lot of anecdotes. Also, he is hilarious and we spent most of the tour cracking up at his jokes. The wines we tried were amazing, and the wineries we visited were beautiful. The group size is perfect (not too small, not too big). A must do for those who want to enjoy (a lot of) Sonoma wines.

This half day wine tour is a fabulous experience. It was more than a wine tour. We were picked up from Union station and stoped two other places , fisherman warf and Sausalito to pick up more passengers. The Driver Grady provided great history on both areas and made it a great bus tour. By the end of the tour he was Uncle Grady . My friend and I had fun.

We actually had to be switched to the full day wine tour because there wasn’t enough people in the half day so they cancelled it. But the tour was great. We got to experience 3 different wineries and had lunch in Sonoma. Staff was friendly. The drive was scenic.

Our drivers were friendly, punctual, and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our time at Muir Woods as well as the wine tasting. Excellent tour.

Amazing day, lovely wines, beautiful views and the driver was great! Highly recommend !
