Description:

Wine Country Tour Shuttle, with its Super High 94% TripAdvisor Rating Score...

Wine Country Tour Shuttle, with its Super High 94% TripAdvisor Rating Score operates from San Francisco to either Napa or Sonoma. We encourage wine lovers to go on both our Wine Country Tours because the different wine regions are so uniquely different. Our Napa Experience Tour visits 4 wineries and has a picnic lunch and a 50-minute relaxing ferry cruise included. See the reviews below to see how well the picnic lunch and the ferry cruise is so well received. The Sonoma Experience Tour (local favorite tour) is new for us and has great reviews below because we picked 2 fantastic wineries, plus we put together a walking map of Sonoma square where guests can get one free pour at each location. Wine Country Tour Shuttle received the 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award.

This was a wonderful tour. Our driver Jonathan was a great guide and had lots of interesting bits of knowledge to share with us. The grounds of all four wineries we visited were beautiful, and the wines themselves were worth the trip. We loved the view from Castello di Amoroso. Lunch at V Sattui was delicious. A well-paced day and... More

Make sure to take the tour that includes Castello di Amorosa, an authentic reproduction of an 11th century Italian castle, and by far the high point of the tour. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the wine country, but might have gone a little too deeply into the subject for most people. The company changed the date of our... More

A visit to Napa was an absolute must before we even got to San Francisco, and it was certainly worth it! After an early breakfast, we headed over to the meet point where it was easy to find the rep and we were guided on to the bus, a lovely drive through the town with a bit of history commentary...

My wife and I used Wine Country Tour Shuttle to visit Napa Valley and partake in four wine tastings. I would recommend booking your tour early and contacting the company directly if you have a very large group. We selected the tour that included the Robert Mondavi Winery and were very glad we did. Everything from meeting our driver at... More

Had a great day in Napa on the Mondavi tour. Our tour guide Jonathan was fantastic, his commentary made the journey up interesting and set us up for a great day ahead.

My wife and I both feel that we made the correct choice for a Napa and/or Sonoma day tour. This was not a drunkfest, although we enjoyed sampling a wonderful variety of wines with some alternate choices available as well. For example, at the Beaulieu Winery it was optional to skip the routine tour and pay extra to enjoy superior... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
