About Sonoma County Scenic Drives
We offer audio guided scenic driving tours throughout gorgeous Sonoma county. Simply play the Cd or mp3 audio tour in your own vehicle, pausing and resuming as instructed by your audio "Tour Guide", as she directs you where to go, how to get there, what to do and see. Depending on the tour you choose, you'll drive along winding roads dotted with wildflowers, pass by old redwood barns, cross over scenic bridges and marvel at the breathtaking Sonoma coast. Along the way, you'll have opportunities to stop for lunch and enjoy photo locations & souvenir shopping. Each scenic driving tour includes directions for the starting location and a colorful souvenir map guide. We also offer local Bodega Bay hotel delivery for free.

Thank you for the incredible review Linda. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed the "Backroads" Tour and especially the made-from-scratch bear claws and Gravenstein apple pie...worth every bite! We hope to show you around again soon...

I have to agree with some other reviewers...Gaylin was just a little too cheery and nerdy at times. Sweet gal with a wonderful disposition but I would have liked maybe a little more narration at a "nice" tone. The sights shown (told) are fine, some...More
