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.

This is a def must do if you have some time in Sonoma. We had a wonderful time! It was a great mix of learning the history of Sonoma and seeing the beautiful wineries. We went to 4 wineries, all unique from one another...all beautiful with delicious wines. There was ample time at each one so you didn't feel rushed.... 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

I have been on a few tours and this was probably my favorite. Went to 4 really cool wineries with very different experiences at each. The trolley was very cool to ride in and provided even better views. Only negative was how scheduled the day was.

We really enjoyed our Wine tour today, loved the local lore our driver Will filled in as well as his wine area knowledge. Really enjoyed Imagery upscale winery with the Estate wines and the BenZinger winery tour was a great value at $20 including the tasting, it's the only way to drink and not drive way to enjoy Sonoma! Would... More

Be prepared for approximately $20 per winery for tour and tip. I was ready to just stay at Buena Vista winery though. It was amazing. The lunch from the Girl and the Fig was delicious and it was enjoyed at Buena Vista, my favorite of the four wineries. I definitely recommend the tour. They provided interesting facts, water, and even... More

My coworker/friend and I spend last Saturday on the Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley, which was driven by the wonderful Will! He was so knowledgeable and took his job seriously, while making everything fun and relaxing. The tour itself was a bit slow (the two of us just really wanted to get on with the wine tasting portion of the trip,... More
