We had a wonderful time on our food tour with Abby!(even in the rain!) Fun, educational and informative. All of our stops were outstanding. Bought some cheese! The Mexican restaurant had an amazing dish! We need to get the recipe! Never had an Olive tasting before! That was interesting! Food at the wine bar was great and our last stop was to sample chocolate. Who doesn't like Chocolate! We highly recommend this tour! It broke up the week with a nice walking food with food.

Wine?

I’ve done several food and wine tours in various locations and this tour is quite disappointing in comparison. I’m not sure how it can be labeled as a food and “wine” tour when we had one margarita and missed the one glass of wine this tour offered because it went over the scheduled time. Very slow moving tour. Venus that don’t offer enough or any seating. Does not feel worth the price. We wanted to experience Sonoma for it’s wine and unfortunately feel like we wasted an afternoon and experienced none of that.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2019
We’re sorry you were disappointed with our tour. It sounds like you would have enjoyed a wine tour more than our food tour and regrettably you ended up missing the wine tasting stop on the tour. Unfortunately, on the day you took the tour we had a guest with a disability which made the tour progress at a slower pace and caused some delays at our scheduled stops. We missed the mark and apologize that you didn’t experience Sonoma the way you had hoped to.

My husband and I really enjoyed the small group food and wine tour. The Sonoma history was a bonus and Abby, the tour leader, was knowledgable and fun. We especially enjoyed the first stop, with the flatbread pizza, caprese and wine. My only suggestion is that you rename it a food tour, we were actually expecting wine at more than one place.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2019
We enjoyed hosting you on our tour! Thank you for the great review and we are so happy you enjoyed the tour! You're right, we are more of a food tour but since we have a wine & a wine country cocktail pairing, we add the "wine" to the title of the tour. Thanks so much for your comments, we appreciate your input! Cheers, Mia
