We did this driving tour on a Saturday in June. Most of the attractions were insightful and fun. The first few are "Birds" centric. We liked the information on how Hitchcock used the different sights in the movie. By the time we got to the coastal beaches, there was too much traffic and we were not too interested in stopping....

We've been to Bodega Bay several times and thought we'd seen most of it... were we wrong! We just returned to our hotel after completing the Sonoma Driving Tour of the Bodega Bay area. The CD is really well done and we discovered that we really didn't know much about the area other than the obvious (Birds was filmed here... More

This is a definite plus for a visit to the region. Having it delivered to your location is handy and cheaper. I echo the comments of the others. If you want to do all of the walks and to picnic, you might want to take two days. We did it in one. Without this CD we would never have caught... More

The Sonoma Tours cd of Bodega Bay was fantastic. The narrator was fun to listen to and offered great hints on what to see and do in the area. We would never have seen all of them if we were on our own or using a guide book.

Thank you Sonoma Driving Tours! I wanted to visit this stretch of the Sonoma coast armed with something more personal than the usual binder full of text culled from Google searches. With local perspective, insights and gentle humor, the voice on the CD guides you through a delightful tour of places to stop, explore, photograph, and dine. It’s also easy... More

The Sonoma Driving Tour CD of the Bodega Bay area was a pretty cool thing to be able to just pop into your car and GO! Let me preface my review by saying that I am a big chicken when plotting out a new area to visit with my 2 teens, however the tour guide Gay Lynn was great and... More

My husband, friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the self-guided tour with the assistance of Sonoma Driving Tours' CD. We have been to Bodega Bay several times before so I was looking for something different to do while there with our RV club. If we didn't have the CD, we never would have found the huge arched rock along with mastodon... More

We have been to the Bodega Bay area many times, but thought we might find some things we haven't discovered on our own, so we purchase the Sonoma Driving Tours CD for the area. We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. We had a beautiful house rented for a week. We invited frineds up for a couple of nights mid... More

I found this while surfing the web just before our vacation. The tour sounded like just what we needed. I ordered the CD and had it delivered to our hotel. Sure enough, it was waiting for us at check in. We took the tour the next day. It was fun seeing sights related to the movie, The Birds, and also... More
