The Wine Country of Napa and Sonoma Valleys Awaits
Then, a private guide will drive you one hour north to the world-class wineries of Napa and Sonoma Valleys. With Sonoma Valley on one day and Napa Valley on the other, you’ll experience the many tastes and sights of these vineyard-studded regions. Enjoy private tours and wine tastings at a specially-selected group of premium wineries. You’ll be sure to return home with new favorites and a first-hand understanding of the wine-making process. Have lunch in charming Yountville and return for your final night’s stay in San Francisco.
The Transamerica Pyramid’s pointed tower makes the San Francisco skyline unlike any other in the world. The downtown area is anchored by the shopping district of Union Square and the Financial District, hub of San Francisco business since the Gold Rush of 1849.
More than 100 intimate neighborhoods make San Francisco feel like a collection of villages. Spend some relaxing time viewing streets dotted with Victorian homes, parks, and the modern amenities of this tech-hub that make the city-by-the-bay one of the world’s most popular destinations.
The Golden Gate Bridge links the northern tip of the San Francisco peninsula to Marin County and the wine country. Once the longest suspension bridge on the planet, the American Society of Civil Engineers named it one of the “Wonders of the Modern World.” No image says “You’re in San Francisco” quite like the Golden Gate Bridge!
Welcome to Napa Valley, one of the top wine-production regions in the world. We’ll visit several of the more than 400 wineries during our private tours of the valley. Spend a night in Napa or Sonoma Valley, where you can hike, visit a top-rated restaurant, or simply unwind in the quiet countryside.
In a fun and scenic setting, you’ll experience what goes into making a great wine – including the valleys’ ideal growing conditions, how grapes are fermented and stored, and how master craftsmen blend flavors for award-winning results. Learn the full story of California winemaking, from farm to table.
More than five million visitors come to Napa Valley each year to explore the wineries. And the Sonoma Valley, birthplace of California wine, features some of the state’s earliest wineries and a genteel, rustic ambience. California Tours brings you the best of both areas, along with opportunities to experience wine-making and -growing first-hand.
This customizable vacation package includes 4 night accommodations and multiple guided group tours through San Francisco and the Napa Valley.
