On our first full day in Sonoma for our honeymoon, we hired Tom for the day. I would recommend him to anyone based on his personality alone! But his knowledge of the area and circle of contacts all added to the perfect itinerary he put together for us (including lunch at his home where we met his lovely wife). We... More

There are very few times I feel compelled to write a review - this is one of them. Tom, and his most lovely wife Susie (aka Momma), went above and beyond for us. If you are reading this and wondering if a private tour is for you, then stop, call Tom and book him now! And tell your friends -... More

INCREDIBLE TOUR!!!! COMPLETELY BLEW AWAY OUR EVERY EXPECTATION!!! My wife and I recently booked a tour with Tom to celebrate our 5th anniversary (among other things) and we found him after reading other reviews about his tours on this site. TOM WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND with every detail and created the most exclusive, personal, interesting tour that truly was an... More

Tom took us on a private tour of 3 wineries which were all very different from each other so it was quite a learning experience, wonderful wines and tons of fun. When we arrived Tom provided us with a wine bottle filled with water from his well to keep us hydrated for the day. Tom and his wife, aka Momma,... More

We went on a tour with Tom and his wife Susie this weekend and had a great time! Tom and his wife are really friendly, informative and very hospitable. Tom and Susie have lived and been growing wine in the Sonoma/Napa area for many years and know all the secret wine spots. We had been to many of the commercial... More

Did a tour today with Tom and 4 of my friends and I can't find the words to explain how awesome it was! He showed us everything from the small farmer owned vineyard to the most high tech modern operation and everything in between! If you want a personalized private tour of the wine country I don't think that you... More

Tom’s Secret Wine Tours was an unforgettable experience for us. Tom plans everything so you don’t have to worry about a thing. My boyfriend worked with Tom to plan the full day excursion including an engagement. If you have a preference or have visited the area a lot he will cater to your needs. We went to 3 wineries and...

Being the veterans of other tours in wine country, we were somewhat reluctant to have another pedestrian experience: drinking (& discarding) lots of bad wines, sharing a day with unsophisticated winos, served by lots of bad sales persons just to get to a decent bottle. But, since we were already in Sonoma for a family wedding, we thought we would... More

My husband and I spent a day touring Sonoma wineries with Tom. He arranged everything based upon our wine preferences and his connections in the area. The tastings were all private and were run by the winery owners. The wineries he selected for us were superb as was the entire experience. Tom is a laid back, easy-to-talk-to guy who also... More

I knew this tour would be great the moment we hopped into Tom's truck. Waiting for us were two personalized wine bottles full of water pumped from Tom's well. I found Tom's Secret Winery Tours on Trip Advisor while browsing new experiences for my husband and I to have while in Sonoma. We communicated with Tom via email and phone... More
