Awesome tour of wine country in one day! If you’re someone new to this area and are debating back and forth between Napa or Sonoma, this is for you! My boyfriend and I wanted to make the most of our one day reserved for wine drinking :) this tour not only is safe in that you are not responsible for driving...you leave a LOT from the tour guide along the way and not just about wine. You get to totally enjoy the ride and scenery along the way...three stops at different wineries across both regions...and a good hour and a half for lunch in Sonoma! So worth it. We had the best time - definitely recommend!
