We thoroughly enjoyed our day. The four wineries visited all had unique characteristics that made each stop fresh and interesting, and the winery representatives were all friendly and informative. Will was an entertaining and safe driver, the trolley ride itself was fun, and the lunch was delicious.

My husband and I took this tour when we made the trip to Sonoma for a wedding. The tour took us to 4 different wineries where we were given tours and tastings. They also provided a catered lunch from a local restaurant in downtown Sonoma. This was perfect for us since we had never been to wine country before. Everything... More

The wine trolley was a great way to experience Sonoma. Our driver was fantastic and made the trip lighthearted and fun. We saw three great wineries and a fourth I would have skipped. The provided lunch was fantastic and offered in a beautiful setting. Overall I would do it again and recommend it to others.

Tour was very interesting and the six hours went by too fast. Plenty of wine to sample and the wineries were very interesting. Gordon the tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. Would highly recommend him. Trolley was fun to ride as weather was excellent and the included lunch was great. Only thing that does not make it five stars is... More

We went to four different places and each winery was unique in it's own way. I loved Buena Vista and the lunch was delicious! Our guide was Will and he was really knowledgable on the region. This was a wonderful tour and we would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks Sonoma Wine Trolly!

I have been on other Wine Trolley's in California and this one was by far inferior. The driver was boring (he could have been a bit more fun/enthusiastic), lunch was bland (there was flies all over it), the price was too high for not including any of the tasting fees or at least a couple of them. The trolley itself... More
