Alan was an excellent tour guide who was very knowledgeable and he shared many interesting facts about San Francisco and the surrounding area. He was great at explaining the itinerary and the Muir Woods & Wine Country tour definitely exceeded our expectations. The wineries we visited in the Muir Woods & Wine Country tour were fantastic and picturesque. It was the perfect way to spend a beautiful Monday and to end off our trip to San Francisco.

Wine Country & Redwoods Van Tour
Are wine tasting fees included in the tour price?
If you choose the Wine Country Bus Tour, yes, all tasting fees are included. The Wine Country & Redwoods Tour usually visits two wineries that offer free tastings and a third that may charge an additional $5.00 tasting fee. The Wine Country Lovers Tour does not include tasting fees in the tour price. Since the guests choose the wineries it is impossible for us to list the costs. Fees are generally between $5 to $15.
What is the difference between the Wine Country Bus Tour and the Wine Country Lovers Tour?
The Wine Country Lovers Tour is a semi-private tour that has a smaller group (no more than ten people). The Wine Country Lovers Tour also allows guests the opportunity to choose some of the wineries they would most like to visit. The group on the Wine Lovers Country Tour visits four to six wineries. The vehicle used for the Wine Country Lovers Tour is a luxury van.
The Wine Country Bus Tour accommodates a larger group of up to fifty-six passengers. It visits three wineries in total. The Wine Country Bus Tour visits both Sonoma and Napa valley. All wine tasting fees are included on the Wine Country Bus Tour. The vehicle used for this tour is a bus with motor coach seating, air-conditioning and restrooms on board.
Which is your most popular San Francisco Wine Country Tour?
The Wine Country & Redwoods Tour is our most popular San Francisco Wine Country Tour because it includes many of the most famous sights in the San Francisco bay area such as the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marin Headlands, Muir Woods National Park, the California wine country where we visit three wineries, and Sausalito. We visit all of those sights at a leisurely pace during an inexpensive nine-hour tour.
What wineries do you visit?
San Francisco Wine Country Tours specializes in visiting small, family-owned wineries. These wineries are the most accommodating for our small groups and present a more authentic experience. Our winery itinerary varies on a daily basis; however, we visit Cline Cellars, Loxton and Homewood most often.
What kind of vehicles do you use on your wine country tours?
Our vehicles of choice are a luxury 15-passenger mini van or 26-passenger minibus, and a 56-seat motor coach for all our wine tours by bus. For private charters, the vehicle used varies, depending on the size of the group. Feel free to Contact Us for more information.
Can you organize private parties or corporate charters?
Yes, we customize private tours to the group requests. We can cater to business convention attendees, students, work colleagues, and family gatherings. The Wine Country charter tour is customized to the group’s requests and can include meals, for example a picnic lunch at a winery, or restaurant dinner in Sausalito, CA. Tram tours through man-made caves, Champagne tasting at a winery balcony and a sunset ferry ride to Fisherman’s Wharf are some of the adventures we organize for our Wine Country charter groups.
