The Wine Lovers Wine Country with Alcatraz Tour is a semi-private tour to the Wine Country Region, Sonoma and Napa, plus an Alcatraz Tour the following day.
Day 1: Wine Lovers Wine Country Tour
The great thing about this Wine Country Tour, you tell us where YOU would like to go in the Napa Valley Region, Sonoma Valley Region, or both. Our wonderful guide will spend the first hour discussing the options and taking suggestions whilst on the way to the Wine Country. Usually we tend to visit four to six boutique wineries in one day. On the drive up north, your guide will educate you on the history of California and wine making therein. This trip will provide the opportunity to sample wineries from the Napa region and/or the Sonoma Valley region. We’ll also find time to grab a tasty lunch in between your wine tastings, or maybe at one of the wineries! Some wineries offer complimentary tastings, but most charge a fee ranging from $15 to $25, and winery hosted tours usually cost extra.
California has approximately 1400 Wineries and 650 of them are located in San Francisco’s backyard of the Sonoma and Napa Valley counties. Here is our list of wineries that we visit on a regular basis. Keep in mind we won’t visit all of these on a single tour. Do try to keep a clear head for the next day though, because you will be visiting Alcatraz Island!

Day 2: Alcatraz Tour
Please meet at Pier 33. Alcatraz Island, located in San Francisco has to be one of the most famous landmarks in the world. Journey across the bay, as your Alcatraz Tour begins with a 45 minute audio presentation "Doing Time: The Alcatraz Cell house Tour," featuring recordings of guards and inmates who actually lived and worked on the Island. When your Alcatraz tour is finished then explore Alcatraz Island as long want on your own, but please do remember to get the ferry back to San Francisco in time!
