Redwoods and Wine Country Tour

The Most Comprehensive Redwoods & Wine Country Tour with all tasting fees included

  • What do I need to bring?

    • Park entrance fee
    • Valid ID
    • Camera
    • Money for additional wine tasting at the Sonoma Plaza
    • Sunscreen during summer months
    • Bottled water
    • Money for lunch
    • Winter clothes during the winter months
    • Solid shoes
  • What should I wear?

    We recommend comfortable walking shoes, such as shoes or boots with rubber soles and treads. Hiking sandals (rather than beach sandals) can be worn on the Redwoods & Wine Country Escape during the summer months. High heels, flip-flops, and open-toe shoes are not recommended.

  • Is the Muir Woods entrance fee included? And how long do we spend inside Muir Woods?

    The tour price does not include the Muir Woods entrance fee, which is $10 per person (based on 2016) and must be paid when you reach the entrance of the park. You have about an hour on your own inside the Muir Woods National Monument.

  • Which wineries are we going to visit?

    On our Redwoods & Wine Country Escape tour we visit 3 wineries, located in Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley. Each winery stop ranges from 30-45 minutes. We’ve narrowed the list of winery stops to those that offer the best California Wine Country experience for our clientele. We have preferred partner wineries that we like to visit but the wineries may depend on the day. Occasionally, a winery on our tour may be closed for a private event, so our tour guides may change the itinerary on the day of the trip.

  • Does this tour go to Napa?

    Yes, we do. The itinerary of visiting Napa Valley AND Sonoma Valley in combination with Muir Woods National Monument is what makes this tour unique.

  • Are wine tasting included and how much money do I need for the additional wine tastings in Sonoma Plaza?

    Yes, all wine tasting fees at the 3 winery stops are included on this tour. If you want to join additional wine tasting, please feel free to do that. The wine tasting fees range from $5 to $20.

  • What languages are available for this tour?

    The tour is narrated in English but we offer complimentary audio guides in 8 languages: Spanish, French, German, Italian, Korean, Mandarin, Japanese, and Portuguese. If an audio tour is required, please specify the languages needed in the comments section on the reservation page.

  • Is this tour suitable for children?

    Yes, children of all ages are welcome on the tour though drinking alcohol is not permitted for those under the age of 21. Please bring a valid photo ID.

  • Do we stop at Golden Gate Bridge?

    Yes, there will be about 15-minutes for a photo stop opportunity at the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.

  • Can we buy food or do we have to bring our own lunch?

    You are more than welcome to bring a bagged lunch though you will have time to pick up lunch or sit down at a casual eatery at the Historic Sonoma Plaza.

  • What is the advantage of this combination tour compared to the tours separately?

    The Redwoods & Wine Country Escape combines two of California's top attractions. You get the chance to see the Giant Redwood trees and you will join several wine tastings in both Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley - all in just one day. There is also a huge saving by booking this combination tour rather than booking both trips separately.

We’ve earned more 5-star reviews on the Redwoods and Wine Country Tours than anyone!  

Majestic trees await. Start your morning by visiting the Redwoods in Muir Woods National Monument or in another park and exploring the Coastal Redwood groves ahead of the crowds. The morning fog may still be lifting from trees that soar for hundreds of feet above your head as you stroll for an hour along pristine nature trails.  Be on the lookout for California’s native coastal ferns, oak trees, clover, squirrels, fox, and even deer!

Sip the good life. Our “insider” guides make this Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley portion of the tour a real once-in-a-lifetime experience. Each of the three wineries that you will visit are quite different from one another ranging from boutique to grand. At each exclusively arranged experience, you’ll enjoy a friendly wine country welcome and breathtaking scenery while learning the stories behind the wineries. Oh...and you’ll taste wines selected especially for us by the winemakers themselves. Be ready to add to your wine cellar while you are there as most of the wines are not sold in retail stores! Check out some of the wineries we visit during the Redwoods and Wine Country Tours. 

Best lunch ever! Want to complete your visit to California’s wine country with a private food and wine pairing experience at the most renowned restaurant in the Sonoma Valley? Select this upgrade and you’ll be served classic California cuisine along with a collection of local wines in a seated setting. Check out the seasonally updated menu. Lunch, tax and gratuity are all included. If selecting the lunch upgrade, please add your meal choices in the comment box at step 2 of check out.

If you prefer, you can spend your lunch break exploring Sonoma Plaza’s many restaurants, boutique shops, and wine tasting rooms.

The big finish. On the journey back to San Francisco we’ll make one final stop at a scenic look-out point with sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, San Francisco skyline, Alcatraz, and the Bay Bridge where you can take some fabulous photos while reflecting upon the amazing day that you have had!

Redwoods and Wine Country Tour
– Verna R. on 06/13/2018

Muir, Napa, and Sonoma Tour. Our tour guide, Kristina, was excellent, She was articulate, friendly, and had the knowledge base to answer all of our questions. She gave us the extra bits of information that added to our tour. The length of the tour was appropriate, and as explained in the brochure. One of our group members forgot a package on the bus. Kristina and the office personnel helped us to retrieve it with ease. Kristina's personality was perfect for the position of tour guide, This tour, by far, was the best of the lot.
– Roger P. on 06/08/2018

Informative, fun, flexible, enjoyable and variety. Our guide Roman delivered a thoroughly enjoyable day allowing appropriate time at each location for guests to appreciate the whole day. The 3 wineries visited displayed a great range of wine and approach to wine making and the lunch in Sanoma provided plenary of choice and time to stroll through the historic park. Starting the day with a visit to the Muir Woods created a mood of wonder and joy.
– Connie B. on 06/06/2018

Fun day, Ben was very knowledgeable and keep us moving right along.
– Andrew G. on 06/06/2018

FUN! Richard was great!!!!
– Rory I. on 06/06/2018

My partner and I were travelling from Scotland. We both thoroughly enjoyed the trio, and we greatly appreciated the driver, Lars, with his hospitality and great interesting knowledge. 10/10, would highly recommend.
– Sam S. on 06/06/2018

Really good tour. The bus driver/ tour guide Travis was friendly and provided information on what we were seeing to make our trip more interesting. However we did spend most of the day on the coach (as expected), but would have preferred to arrive back in the city later in the evening to see more in Sonoma/ Napa during the day. Also good communication from the tour company from booking to confirming the tour nearer the time.
– Ariel W. on 06/06/2018

Request Roman. Our driver, Roman, was cheeky with jokes and very knowledgeable about the wineries and Muir Woods as promised! One would expect a bus ride lasting all day to be exhausting, but the verbal guide to the tour was interactive, refreshing, and interesting (to say the least). I’d recommend this tour to anyone and everyone! It was an awesome experience, and as a San Francisco first, this was the highlight of my trip.
– Duane F. on 06/06/2018

Good tour for First Timers Roman was a hit! He made the tour. He was informative and showed great respect for the area. He made good suggestions about the restaurants at Sonoma Square. We chose to get lunch in our own and not pre-order. Pros: reservations through Viator were easy to make. Bus was on time. Great to have someone drive you around so everyone can enjoy the views! The Muir Woods were the highlight! Beautiful to see it early in the AM before too many people disturb the quiet. Got a very good feel for Sonoma and Napa Valley. The staff at all wineries wanted their guests to enjoy! We made good time so we made a pit stop at the Golden Gate Bridge. Beautiful and cool!!! Cons: The bus fills up first come first serve. It was a full bus so someone had to sit in middle back seat. There were some chains on the floor which made it a bit uncomfortable for the person sitting there. No bathroom on this bus. Take advantage of all stops to use the potty. It was sooo hot in Sonoma! It made bus ride uncomfortable because air conditioning could not keep up. The wineries were a bit lack luster. It may be better to see only 2 nicer venues. We got the jist of winemaking but there was no wow effect. We totally enjoyed our day because of Roman. He made us feel that he cared about our good time.
– David G. on 06/06/2018

Great day out in Sonoma and Napa with Ben, our knowledgeable and fun driver.
