“Enjoyed our tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed our tour. It was a rainy September afternoon at first, but our guide Paul did a great job and mitigated the bad weather. He was very knowledgeable about many subjects including winemaking and everything else. We went to the Gundlach Bundschu and the BV wineries. Nice size group. Paul took good care of us within town.

“Great tour for bike and wine lovers.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Can't say enough good things about this tour and company. My wife had broken her arm two weeks before and we called ahead to see what our options were. They recommended the tandem bike but said to come by the day before to see if it would work. They didn't want us to have to pay the full price to cancel the day of if it didn't. As it turns out it work out fine with a little practice. Got there early to start and found out we were the only ones that day. Lynn, out tour guide, was friendly and outgoing and very knowledgable of the region and the history of the wineries we visited. Together my wife and I had no problem riding the 1-3 miles between wineries and Lynn set a conversational pace the whole ride. She was great at pointing out features of the town and countryside. The 3 wineries she selected that day were a perfect way to compare the different styles of the wines you'll see in Sonoma. From small homey operation to large, old tradition vineyards they were all great. Had great wine and Lynn introduced us to some passionate people to tell us about the wine we were tasting at the wineries. The lunch they provided was delicious and there was fresh water bottle provided by the support van after lunch. The van also took what wine we purchased back the the store for us to pick up afterwards.
If you like to be out doors or love bikes, this is a great unique way to see the Sonoma countryside. And the wineries visited on the tour were top notch. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Sonoma.

“Great way to visit wineries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We had a great time. We were delayed a little because our original tour guide didn't show up, but Thorn filled in and we had a blast. He biked at the pace of our group and the lunch was great. We went to three wineries. I would highly recommend doing this if you enjoy biking. There were a few hills, but nothing too bad.

“Fabulous Bike Rental Company”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Sonoma Valley Bike Tours was a fabulous place to rent bikes. The bikes themselves are very high quality (they sell them at the end of each season and start the new season with all new bikes) although I found the seat uncomfortable (my companion had no problem with the seat). Equally important, the ride they sent us on was completely stunning, perfect for the time we had and our ability level. Finally, the woman who helped us went out of her way to meet our needs. In fact, she gets extra karma points for being a very kind, as well as competent, human being.
