2,179 reviews
Combine two of San Francisco’s top area attractions—Muir Woods and Wine Country—on this tour, which saves you valuable vacation time and dollars. At Muir Woods, enjoy convenient drop-off without fighting for parking, and take your time exploring the redwoods. Head for Sonoma and Napa for visits to three wineries, where you can taste vintages without worrying about who will do the designated driving.

This was our 3rd visit to Benzinger. We have been visiting Sonoma for 40 years and have often stayed at the Jack London Lodge in Glen Ellen and walked up the hill to Benzinger. The first time we visited was on a Platypus Wine tour. This was a quick Covid Safe getaway and we very much enjoyed our tasting at Benzinger. The fee is $30pp and our host Dave was fantastic. The patio is beautiful. While in the area we had a nice visit to nearby Jack London Historic Park and enjoyed a drink on the Creekside patio at the Saloon at Jack London Lodge. Very fun and Covid Safe too!

I was traveling solo and stopped here on way from Jack London's estate. I loved the tour, learned so much from David! It was great to learn about their natural practices. The views from every point are spectacular! I loved to go into the cave and smell the wine. The tasting at the end was adequate, with four samples. I ended up purchasing two bottles to take with me. All in all, it was a great day!

Stopped here after hiking Jack London park. It's a lovely hilltop winery with pretty grounds, a tram tour, history lesson, and a big board with the family's recommendations for local must sees. We ended up shipping wine home after a tasting. The grounds are really nice with a big outdoor seating area.

This whole experience was really great! We went after a friend's suggestion. The tour was given by one of the member of the family. It was very educational and fun. The wine samples were great and the whole property was beautiful.
