Omg this was such a fun tour! I would definitely recommend it! It starts off and you head to the Golden Gate for picture opportunities and to see its beauty! We chose to include mimosas in our tour so we started with one there and then headed to Sonoma! About 40 minute drive and it went quick you gave lots of views to look at on the way! Winery’s were all great they welcomed us happily! Abdel was our guide and he did an amazing job on keeping us updated on how long we had at each winery and what the day had in store! Loved every minute!

The bus was tacky, but clean and comfortable. Our driver Abe was very pleasant. Our chef Achmed was very accommodating, providing a gluten-free meal for one in our group. Was a relaxing, fun day.

This tour exceeded me expectations. Especially pleased with the olive press stop. I only wish the party bus was exclusively mine. I assumed that it was.

Abe was fantastic! He was so funny and full of energy, he really made the day even more entertaining. The 4 wineries we visited were all individually amazing. Lunch was nice, it was outside at one of the wineries and at the perfect time of day! The views were breath taking and the drive was scenic, totally worth doing just for the views and Abe if you aren't into wine.

Zidan was our driver and he made our wine tastings/tours so much fun! He explained what we were going to do prior, and as we were tasting. The wineries were very accommodating and made us feel special by opening a private bar for our group of 7. The lunch provided and served by Zedan was perfect. He also kept us all on time and took great care of us. Thanks so much for making this an awesome memory for myself and 21 year old daughter :)

My first visit to the west coast was just outstanding and much credit goes to the wine country tour and our tour guide Abe. Kudos to Abe for a job done above and beyond tour guide requirements! The Mercedes tour bus was to die for with the large open windows from top to bottom affording beautiful scenic views of San Francisco. Abe and Napa/Sonoma Valley Wine Country Tours rock, thank you so much. Abe’s sense of humor and pleasant customer service embellished the tour, he is a valuable asset to your company!

This wine tour is AWESOME!! We were able to stop at 4 wineries, the length and the first two stops could’ve been a little longer, they were under an hour. But each winery is very generous with the servings and tastings. Well worth it!! Party bus has a lot of space. Abe was an awesome and patient guide!!

We were picked up at Union Square on time by Abe our driver. He's an entertaining and fun driver who engaged the crew of fellow wine tasters mostly from out of town. One thing missing from the "party" bus was the music. Luckily a person from the group connected their bluetooth and started playing music. There was a stop at the Golden Gate Bridge for us to take pictures and play tourist. We stopped at four different wineries. Our favorite was the Jacuzzi Family winery, where Don gave us a lesson on wine tasting etiquette. We wondered over to taste the balsamic and olive oil offerings. After the trip we concluded that we should have visited 3 locations and spend more time at each location. The next places we visited were the Viansa, Madonna Estates, and Kieu Hoang. We had our picnic lunch at the Madonna Estates. Timing was great since we were quite hungry after two winery stops; although the sandwich wasn't the most amazing, it did hit the spot. We were dropped off back in SF. It was a great day trip out of town to take friends.

This wine Tour was so much fun. The guide, Soccer, was amazing. This was part of a girls trip and we all had a blast.

This tour shuttles you through staple sites in SF in a limo bus then to 4 wineries across Sonoma and Nappa. Besides the amazing wine, the best part of the tour is Abe, your driver, chef, and standup comedian. If you are interested in beautiful views, delicious wine, and a great time getting there, go with Abe.

Excellent tour guide, he was so knowledgeable and so much fun. Got way more than we paid for, guide added extra wine stop to the tour.

We had such a great time on this tour. From the beginning, Abe made us feel welcome. He's a very funny character. As you can imagine with a large group of strangers, there is some timidity at first. His jokes and great personality broke the ice. We stopped at 4 vineyards, each with its own charm. Jacuzzi was the first and my favorite. Be sure not to miss the Olive Press as well. We had a really fun group, which makes a huge difference. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who loves wine and a little adventure.

Awesome trip and wineries. The driver was very friendly and tried to bring our spirits with some good music. It's better to go with group of friends, because your don't know if you are going get into a fun group of people.
