We enjoyed traveling through Sonoma Valley on the wine trolley. Our guide was very friendly, and took as many pictures as we wanted. The wineries we visited were pretty interesting and diverse. Our favorite wineries were Imagery and Benzidine. The wine caves in Benzidine were really interesting and we enjoyed the tour through the grounds. The other two wineries paled... More

The trolley tour was definitely the highlight of my spring break! Will, our driver, was personable, friendly, knowledgeable, hospitable and fun! Each experience at the individual wineries was unique, welcoming and full of interesting facts. We are planning our next trip again!

Very cool, Will (our driver) took us to 4 wineries that we would probably would never have visited on our own. A couple were beautiful properties with lots of history (Buena Vista/Ravenswood), one had several varietals that were not the different for the area (Imagery), and the last one (mayo) had a kooky owner that was SO much fun. In... More

I'm sorry, but that last sour review was all wet. What a great tour! The weather was wet and cold that morning so our guide called my cell an hour before tour to let us know our day would be spent on a heated, leather seated party bus! Would have loved to see the trolley but the bus was comfy,... More

Perhaps we caught them on an off day, but if my experience is the metric used I implore you to not go. Although having someone drive you around on a cute trolley so that you can drink sounds amazing, the ride did not meet expectations. 'Before we begin I would like to remind you that the wineries tastings are not... More

We are happy that you enjoyed the look and “Logic” behind our Trolley Tour. However, I am personally very sorry that you did not enjoy your recent Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley tour. You indicated that you did not know that tasting fee’s and the driver’s gratuity was not included in your ticket price. The fact that these fees are not... More

Having previously toured vineyards in the Napa Valley, my husband and I decided to visit Sonoma Valley on a trip to California early in March 2014. We were surprised to find we had the trolley entirely to ourselves, and our guide/driver, Jill, took excellent care of us. Only my husband was tasting, and Jill decided which vineyards to visit based... More

My wife and I took a tour with Will and had a wonderful time. We visited 4 fantastic wineries, in particular Ravenswood and Mayo. He talked about the city of Sonoma as we drove around, and then we had a great catered lunch from one of the top local eateries at the second vineyard we visited.

With only six people on the trolley, this felt almost like a private tour. The countryside was lovely and the wines were excellent. The whole event was very relaxed and low key. I would do this again next time we are in Sonoma!

I would recommend doing this on e your first day so that you may get an overview of wineries and decide if oyu like the smaller independent wineries or the more luxurious wineries. The ride is perfect for taking great pictures of the valley and you get a great tour of Sonoma and its history. Also, know that the wineries... More
