First off this review is VERY overdue! I am finally writing this because friends of ours are traveling to Sonoma next week and they were looking for wineries and a tour guide. Without hesitation I recommended Tom, he was very knowledgable and relaxed. From the time he picked us up in Glen Ellen he gave us a quick tour around... More

Tom's tour was unique and unforgettable. Tom picked the four of us up at the house we were staying at in his crew cab pickup wearing his Hawaiian shirt, and we knew we were ready for a fun and relaxed day. We visited three wineries that are not open for typical tours. We started the day at Squire Fridell's Glen... More

We took Tom's tour on our first full day in the Sonoma area, and it was a great way to get oriented. The tour was a ton of fun. Tom took us to smaller wineries and vineyards, where we had wonderful tastings and conversations with the winemakers themselves. We learned a lot about wine, and expanded our tastes as well... More

We recently spent a week in Sonoma, and decided to spend a day with a tour of wineries in the area. Tom was wonderful. He arranged a call to get to know what we liked and did not like, price range and really gave us a good vibe about what to expect. He planned our day based on our likes,... More

Last year, my husband and I enjoyed Tom's Secret Winery Tour so much that we immediately decided to book him again for this year. By far, his tour has proven to be the highlight of our week spent in Sonoma. Tom takes his time to understand our wine preferences and contacts wineries outside of better known ones for us to...

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
