We are thrilled to unveil this new itinerary that will take you to our favorite places in Sonoma, Napa, and Marin Counties. You'll experience the natural beauty--and bounty--of the region we call "Wine Country". We can immerse you in the magic of the area on this 3-day tour, and still make sure you get to all of the "must-see" places, including Muir Woods. There's so much more than wine in this area, and we can take you to the spots we've discovered as locals, and love returning to! You'll enjoy private tastings, bucolic scenery, and plenty of time to relax and soak up the essence of one of the world's most celebrated places.
