Paul was an excellent tour guide. He gave a little extra in providing us with some history of the Plaza, which was very interesting. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the vineyards, the tastings and lunch.

I thought that this was a great way to spend a day in Sonoma. The driver was very informative, friendly and fun. I liked that they took us to 4 very diverse wineries so we felt like it was a great overall experience.

Took the trolley tour this past saturday with driver Leif. It was such a great way to get around and see the beauty of the valley and explore several of the wineries and vineyards.

We had a great time on the wine trolley. Visited 4 wineries and it included lunch. 2 of the wineries provided tours which were both fun and informative. The only down side is that the wineries themselves have gone the way of napa and started charging crazy tasting charges. I Wish the trolley would negotiate either better tasting prices or... More

Thank you for the comments. Sonoma is changing slightly to accommodate the many visitors they see each day buy charging a small fee for tastings. We do have some negotiated prices with the wineries themselves and are always looking to change things up a bit to help keep the tour to a reasonably priced tour. So glad you had a... More

My wife and I cane to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. I booked the trolley tour based upon reviews, and we were not disappointed. Our driver provided great insights into the area and local history. We didn't just go to wineries for tastings, we had great tours of the grounds and were educated on the histories of the wineries, the... More

We love to hear the words "Fantastic time" and "It was a blast". We are so thrilled when we have wonderful happy people onboard the Trolley. Most of the time the tour can be shaped by the people on it. If you're a happy person, it can be infectious. Stay Happy. More

The trolley was a fun way to see the wineries. I do wish that they took us to some wineries with less expensive tastings or ones that waived the tasting with purchase.

Mark L, General Manager at Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley, responded to this review

Trisha, thank you for the feedback. Most of the wineries these days charge $20-125 per person for tastings and unlike the old days they don't comp your tasting for the purchase of one bottle. These days its "spend $150 and we will give away the tasting". Boy have times changed since I started going wine tasting. It was all free.... More

We really enjoyed the choice of wineries and lunch. Our driver shared his knowledge of the area and interesting facts that we would not have known had we toured on our own.

Paul, our gide, was energetic and knowledgeable. He kept us on schedule without being pushy and was entertaining during the entire day. The trolley was a pleasant way to travel from place to place. When it was chilly we had the enclosed option to sit. Then once the sun came out, we rode in the open air. Lunch was yummy... More

Thank you for the review. Staying hydrated is an essential part of the tour. We recommend drinking as much water as we do wine. Paul is very good at keeping the Trolley on time so that we can make sure you have a non rushed day touring Sonoma and a wonderful Wine Tour. Cheers. More

Guide was nice and knowledgeable. Tour was boring. Don't expect to drink a lot. Trolley was cool to ride in. I wouldn't do again. Just not what I expected.

Dear valued customer, I am sorry you felt the tour was "boring" or that you did not "drink a lot", but you did think that the guide was knowledgeable and the tour was "cool". The tour its itself is not about drinking a lot of wine, and we as the Trolley Tour do not pour any wine. That is completely... More
