    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.

Wineries Extranomical Visits – For more than a decade we’ve been providing quality Wine Country tours from San Francisco and we’ve narrowed the list of winery stops to those which offer the best California Wine Country experience for our clientele. Our select wineries run the gamut from family-owned and boutique to large and grand, but they always must have a friendly atmosphere, and provide beautiful scenery, quality wines and good value.

Extranomical Tours partners with a great combination of wineries in both Sonoma County and Napa Valley for our Muir Woods and Wine Country Escape tour. All wineries offer a variety of local wines and a personalized experience no matter what day you go on the tour. Wineries may change based on availability but you will always experience a warm wine country welcome at each stop! We make sure that the wineries provide a relaxing setting as you indulge in crisp and fine wines and take in the exceptional views of California Wine Country. 

The Bartolucci family at Madonna Estate Winery has four generations of winemaking under their belt. Their vineyards are dry-farmed and 100% organic, producing a variety of hand-crafted wines: Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Dolcetto, Barbera, Riesling, Gerurztraminer and Muscat Canelli. Cline Cellars offers classically quaint California Wine Country style, indicative of Sonoma Valley’s earlier days. This family-owned winery specializes in Rhone varietals and sources fruit from Sonoma Valley and Contra Costa County. Mayo Family Winery was founded in 1993 and the family believes that single vineyards produce the highest quality and enjoyable wines.

Redwoods & Wine Country Tours Description - Start your morning exploring the Redwood Sequoia groves in Muir Woods National Monument (approximately 1 hour) before other tour groups reach the park.  Muir Woods is home to some of the oldest and tallest trees in the world. Enjoy California’s native coastal flora and fauna: Ferns, oak trees, clover, squirrels and an occasional deer can be spotted.

A short drive North and you’ll spend a relaxing afternoon wine tasting in California’s renowned wine country. We make 3 tasting stops: one winery in Sonoma County, one at the historic Sonoma Plaza or Healdsburg Plaza and one more in Napa County, spending 45 minutes to 1 hour at each location. It is at the historic Sonoma Plaza, where our optional food and wine offering will take place. This  food & wine pairing will truly bring your whole California wine country adventure together by giving you a chance to test your newly gained wine knowledge​, and enhance your tasting experience to truly master the art of wine and food pairing. Make sure you book the Lunch Upgrade for this experience!

All of the wine tastings at the wine tasting stops are complimentary and you will have a chance to try a variety of delicious wines. The Wine Country Plaza stop is a bit longer, so you’ll have a chance to grab a bite to eat and visit additional tasting rooms (fees may apply) located around the plaza or browse the boutique shops. 

On the journey back to San Francisco we’ll make one last 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.
