“Quaint Sonoma”
Reviewed 18 October 2009

The charming town of Sonoma, just an hour north of San Francisco, is a delightful stop on the way to Napa Valley. Tree lined streets, an old tyme theatre, and a central courthouse give the feeling of life in the early 1900's. There is the usual bustle of hurried lives but a lovely rose garden to remind you to take the time to enjoy life. On this early Fall afternoon, many were resting under the trees with a good book or a good friend.

We decided to do the Sonoma Segway tour of local wineries and a cheese factory. Our guide was excellent in getting us comfortable on our unique means of transport. We were all quickly in line like baby ducks following Dad to see the historic homes on bike trails that follow the old railroad tracks. Then, a little more rural trip took us to Buena Vista winery, the longest operating "vino" establishment in the valley. We capped our tour with a tasty visit to Vella Cheese factory where we had a lesson in cheese making and some delicious samples.

Wishing to prolong our stay, we wandered the shops around the town square and eventually drove on with a trunk full of treasures.

“Loved the Segways!”
Reviewed 9 October 2008

We have been to Sonoma many times and wanted to try something different and Segway tours was what we decided on. Segways are easy to use and we were all up and running in about 15 minutes. We got to see Sonoma through the eyes of someone who has grown up in the area and truly loves it. We of course were taken to a winery and as much as I enjoy wine tasting I would have to say the Vella Cheese tour was the highlight for me, great cheese and really great people. Thanks Hunt for a memorable experience.

“Great Fun!!”
Reviewed 15 September 2008

We had such a fun time!! We always wanted to try a Segway and finally had the opportunity. They are truly fun and easy to operate. We were mostly on residential roads or pathways, but Hunt always kept a watchful eye on any approaching vehicles or bumps in the road.

Hunt, the owner, was our tour guide. He was knowledgable, friendly and fun. The initial instruction was very quick and provided us with plenty of hands on knowledge and comfort. He took photos of us along the way which are included in this review for you to enjoy too.

We visited Buena Vista Winery; a beautiful vineyard rich with delicious wines and history. The Vella Cheese Company was very interesting and tasty!! The Sonoma tour was very informative and picturesque.

We would highly recommend this activity!!

“Loved touring Sonoma on a Segway!”
Reviewed 21 August 2006

Had a great time zooming around Sonoma on a Segway, and my guide was a very friendly, patient and knowledgeable local, who put me at ease and made learning how to drive the Segway a fun experience (and I am not good with mechanical things at all!) We drove around on some pathways seeing the sights, and then went out on the road when I had gained some confidence and visited a winery and a very nice local cheese shop. The instruction and tour lasted about three hours, and would be a fun activity before spending the afternoon wine-tasting. Thanks for a very enjoyable morning, Hunt; loved my tour!
