NAPA WINE TOURS FROM SAN FRANCISCO FOR GROUPS
Napa and Sonoma Combo Tour by Green Dream
These small-group Napa and Sonoma Valley Winery tours have to be some of our favorite Wine Country tours from San Francisco.
You’ll be picked up at your hotel between 8am-9am, where you’ll board the minibus and travel to the first stop, the Golden Gate Bridge. Here, you’ll have an opportunity to step off the bus and capture some memorable photos of this iconic landmark!
After boarding the minibus again, you’ll make your way to the first winery stop in Sonoma.
The tour includes a visit to three wineries and no extra tasting fees. While the wineries are subject to change if needed, you will most likely stop at Peter Cellars, Nicholson Ranch, and Starmont Winery & Vineyards.
At one of the wineries, you’ll also be treated to a detailed tour of the winery and a description of the wine making process! Your guide will provide local history and keep things lively as you travel around the area.
You’ll also stop at Oxbow Public Market for lunch. Although the meal from the market is not included, there is something for everyone at this gourmet destination. It’s a great opportunity to sample some of the artisan culinary products of Napa Valley!
On this small-group tour of Wine Country, you’ll travel with a maximum amount of 14 guests. So it’s a great way to enjoy some company without feeling overcrowded!
At the end of the tour, you’ll enjoy a scenic ride from Napa to San Francisco where you’ll be dropped off at the same location where you boarded the bus.
Please note: wine tasting included in price, and senior, youth, and military discounts available.
Napa Valley Open Top Tour
If you are a fan of open top tour busses and you want an adventurous Napa Valley day trip, then this tour is for you.
This Wine Country tour includes a scenic ride over the Golden Gate Bridge, four winery stops and a picnic lunch. Plus, the open top allows you to absorb all of the beauty of the Napa landscape and get some fresh air. But don’t worry—the top can be closed if the weather turns against you.
