Tour Duration: Approximately 9 Hours
Begin your morning exploring the Redwood Sequoia groves in Muir Woods National Monument (approximately 1 hour). Muir Woods is home to some of the oldest and tallest trees in the world. Enjoy ferns, oak trees, clovers, squirrels and perhaps be lucky to spot a deer roaming around. After take a short drive North where you’ll spend a relaxing afternoon wine tasting in California’s renowned wine country. There will be four tasting stops: two wineries in Sonoma County, one at the historic Sonoma Plaza or Healdsburg Plaza and one in Napa County. Guests will spend approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour at each location.
All of the wine tastings are complimentary and you will have a chance to try a variety of delicious wines. The Wine Count Plaza stop is a bit longer, so guests will have the chance to grab a bite to eat or can explore other tasting room (fees may apply) or you can browse around the boutique shops.
On the return trip back to San Francisco we’ll make one last stop at a scenic look-out point where you will have fascinating views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, San Francisco skyline, Alcatraz and the Bay Bridge.
UPGRADE: In historic Sonoma Plaza guests can enjoy delicious gourmet food and wine by upgrading and including this option in the tour. This gourmet food and wine option will make your California wine country adventure even more marvelous, where you will be able to gain knowledge about wines and enhance it by learning to master the combination of wine and food pairing.
