See San Francisco and Sonoma Wine Country in One Day!
There’s no better way to top off an incredible San Francisco tour than with a glass of award-winning wine. So why not visit the birthplace of some of your favorite (or future favorite) bottles?
Enjoy an Insider Look at San Francisco on a Top-Rated City Tour
Start the day off by visiting all the most distinct and beautiful neighborhoods in the city. From seeing the Painted Ladies to crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, you will be able to check all of San Francisco’s most unique areas off your bucket list. Our expert guides will walk you through the history, stories, and small details of the city that you may not have discovered if you explored on your own.
This is not your standard hop-on, hop-off bus tour. Groups stay on the same bus for the entire trip with several breaks and iconic photo stops along the way. Our smaller buses offer an intimate experience without sacrificing personal space or comfort. We make sure every person on our city tour feels seen and accounted for!
Enjoy Lunch with a View in Beautiful Waterfront Sausalito
After exploring the city, we cross the iconic Golden Gate Bridge into the picturesque coastal town of Sausalito. This artists’ enclave is a perfect relaxing escape from the bustle of the city. Stretch your legs, explore the local shops, and take a lunch break at one of the delicious local establishments. Then, we make our way to some award-winning vineyards!
Venture into Sonoma Wine Country and Visit Two Luxury Wineries
Wine tasting fees not included ($20–$30 per tasting).
The Sonoma Wine Country, located less than an hour outside of the city, is home to over 400 wineries and varying microclimates that produce several different types of delectable wines. You’ll have your pick of popular wine choices, but make sure to try a Pinot Noir or two—the specialty wine of this region! Some of the wineries we visit include Viansa, Larson Family Winery, Gloria Ferrer, and Peter Cellars.
If the stunning wine selection doesn’t convince you to visit Sonoma Wine Country, then the rolling Mayacamas Mountains, crisp air, and beautiful winery gardens will. Sonoma wineries are dedicated to sustainable production and offer an unparalleled wine tasting experience to all their visitors.
Want to Add On Muir Woods to Your San Francisco and Wine Country Itinerary?
Planning to visit Muir Woods during your San Francisco trip?

When you book Dylan’s Famous Tour with Wine Country, you can reserve next-day private transportation to and from Muir Woods.

Chinatown—Boasting the largest Chinatown in the United States, this 24-block mecca is bustling with energy, amazing food, and unique and colorful shops that give this area its charm.
*City Hall—This beautiful Beaux-Arts monument epitomizes the high-minded American Renaissance of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The site of Joe Dimaggio and Marilyn Monroe’s marriage in 1954.
Haight Ashbury (time permitting)—The origin of the hippie culture and the birthplace of the “Summer of Love.” From the stunning Painted Ladies to the homes of music’s favorite 60’s bands, this district started the counterculture movement across the USA.
*Pacific Heights—Offering one of the most scenic outlooks in all of Northern California, Pacific Heights is home to Billionaire’s Row, featuring the estates of politicians, tech titans and other San Francisco celebrities (includes Mrs. Doubtfire house!)
Presidio—Former military base, now a beautiful park that includes Crissy Field, Fort Point, Lucasfilm’s (George Lucas) headquarters and the Walt Disney Museum.
*Fort Point—Located just beneath the Golden Gate Bridge, Fort Point gives you a front-row seat to the Bay and is a great photo stop. This former military fortification was used during WWII.
Golden Gate Bridge—Declared “one of the 10 wonders of the modern world,” the Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most recognized symbols of San Francisco. Simply stunning!
**Marin Headlands—Offering a stunning perspective of the Golden Gate Bridge with downtown San Francisco in the background, this awe-inspiring view is the perfect place to capture a memorable photo.
**Only available on private tours.
