Point Reyes Station: Food and Farm Tour with Lunch

1. Point Reyes Station: Food and Farm Tour with Lunch

Discover the coastal farms of West Marin and Sonoma County which offer an unrivaled collection of epicurean delights for any hungry traveler. Nestled between the edges of the famed California wine country and the protected Pt. Reyes National Seashore, this unique region offers an incredible variety of high-quality produce, artisan cheeses, wine, local oyster beds, grass-fed beef, and more.  This exclusive, 5-hour food tour offers a unique opportunity to sample some of the best the region has to offer and learn the fascinating history that makes the area so unique. Starting at the small town Pt. Reyes Station, home to a locally-loved weekly farmers market, meet your guide and any additional members of your group over pastries from the renowned Bovine Bakery. Receive a quick overview of the tour and region before heading to the Cowgirl Creamery for 7 to 8 samples of award-winning cheeses. From there, meet a local bread maker and go into the bakery (not open to the general public) to see how they use their wood-fired brick oven to make naturally leavened bread and meet the awesome women who built the business. Next, set off to lunch where you can either visit the acclaimed Marin Sun Farms for grass-fed beef burgers (vegetarian options available) and buffalo-milk gelato or head to the shore of Tomales Bay for a mouth-watering (and informative) lunch of sustainable seafood. After lunch, visit a meadery where you can try local honey and toast with samples of champagne-style sparkling mead (honey wine) and sit down, picnic-style, at the famous Hog Island Oyster Company to savor locally grown oysters on the half-shell. The day concludes with a walking farm tour of an organic micro-farm that grows fruits, veggies, and flowers for the local community. Depending on the season, there may even be stuff to pick and enjoy right on the farm!

What people are saying about Sonoma Valley

We went on a full day tour of Muir Woods, Napa Valley, and Sonoma with our excellent tour guide Paul, who made the trip unforgettable! The views were stunning, the wine was tasty, and Paul was incredibly informed about the entire area including the local plant life, history, and wine growing/making. Two of our group got engaged at Muir Woods and Paul went out of his way to make it a special occasion even purchasing sparkling wine and glasses to drink and take home. We would 10/10 recommend Paul and this tour!

Antonio, our driver & guide, was absolutely phenomenal!! He drove us from place to place safely while also sharing some interesting facts about the city, the wine process, and all while playing some good music. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and it was extremely evident that he enjoyed his job. Cannot recommend it enough!

Such a fun tour! The tour guide Joseph was very knowledgeable and all around cool guy. I will say, the first stop is the best one. The last two are good, but not better the first.

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of San Francisco, which enriched the experience. The wineries we visited were excellent.

The bus driver was wonderful, all wineries had great tour guides, were educational, and we loved tasting the wines they had!
