This was the best wine tasting experience we’ve ever had! Dave was the consummate host—very knowledgeable about wines, wine making, & the history of the area, plus a lot of fun to be around. He personalized the tour based upon our wine preferences & added several personal touches to make my husband’s birthday celebration perfect in every way. The homemade lunch was delicious, & all of our hosts at the wineries made us feel like we were friends dropping by for a visit. This was a great way to experience wine country. After a perfect day of wine, food, bikes, & new friends, we discovered we had accidentally locked our keys in our rental car. Dave made a few phone calls to find a towing service & then stayed with us in the parking lot for over two hours until we could retrieve our keys. That is the ultimate in customer service & demonstrates the kind of guy Dave is. We can’t wait to return to wine country & take another bike ride with Adventures in Cycling!

My wife booked this tour well before our trip and everything about it was perfect. Dave, the owner, met us at our hotel at the appointed time to start our tour. When we came out of the hotel, he already had the bikes set up and ready to go. The bikes are e-bikes which enables almost everyone to keep up and provides some welcome assistance on the inclines and in the afternoon after a few hours of biking and a couple of vineyards. Although it appears from these reviews that there are other tour leaders that work with Dave; I would suggest confirming that Dave will be your guide when you book. To clarify, I have had no experience with any guide other than Dave, but he was so good that it's hard to see how someone else could measure up. As we headed off through town and the countryside, Dave made us feel like old friends as he imparted his knowledge of the area. At the first winery we visited; we were treated to a tasting in a lounge tucked away in the back of the winery. Dave seemed to know everyone here from the greeter at the front gate to the Manager which only made things smoother. We purchased several bottles of wine here and Dave generously allowed us to use his wine club member status discount. Upon leaving the lounge, and meeting Dave in the adjacent picnic area, we were treated to a gourmet homemade lunch. A starter cheese and charcuterie board was followed by a fresh salad and grilled salmon and chicken. All was served on a tablecloth and non-disposable plates and silverware. Feeling refreshed after a lovely lunch, we got back on the bikes and headed out to our second winery - a completely different but equally delightful experience. At some point, my wife had mentioned her love of chocolate so, as we were leaving, Dave gave her a gourmet chocolate bar. Throughout the day, we learned about Dave and his family and he learned about us. By the time we rolled back onto the rounds of our hotel in the late afternoon, it truly seemed like we had known Dave for years and were saying goodbye to an old friend. This is an activity not to be missed when in Sonoma!

Riding with Dava at Adventures in Cycling was a 10/10 day. My husband and I did a day tour around Napa and visited 2 different wineries.

From the planning to the execution of the day, Dave was beyond helpful and so nice throughout the process. He learned about what types of wines we liked and planned accordingly. The ride was beautiful and we loved how he took us to boutique wineries that we wouldn’t have necessarily gone to without his guidance.

Another highlight was also the amazing lunch Dave made for us. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and it was beyond thoughtful and special (we started with a cheeseboard, a delicious salad, as well as chicken and steak for the mains). We didn’t want our day to end and would recommend this special tour to anyone coming to visit Napa! Perfect for a couple as well as larger groups!

No trip to Sonoma is complete with a bike tour with Dave! It was a full day, but it flew by. Dave was incredibly knowledgeable, the ride was perfect and the food and wine along the way, delicious. Dave was also very helpful ahead of our trip providing tips and thoughts on dinners and wineries to visit. It was my wife's 60th birthday and Dave's wife even designed a hand-made birthday card!

This is our second time with Dave and his team and it was just as good as our first day last September. We rode with his associate through the Dry Creek Road area and we spent a great day touring the area and had some great wine. We stopped at Capo Creek Winery, a newer establishment, and spent some time with Mary the owner. We bough a case of wine and then biked to Rued Winery for lunch. Tac was a great guide, and he knew a lot about the area. He brought us a great lunch and by 2 pm we headed back to the hotel.
Adventures in Cycling will definitely be a must-do whenever we visit Sonoma! Dave is a great guy who responds to emails promptly and Tac gave 100% to make our day memorable.

This was our third trip with Adventures in Cycling, and it was just a great as the last two. Dave is an amazing guy who knows the area well and understands what you want to do. This time we did two wineries and both of them were excellent. He also provides lunch and informative commentaries on the area and the wineries. I'd recommend Adventures in Cycling to anyone who wants to have a great day in Sonoma!

We rode with Dave and Matt in Healdsburg. We had an amazing day. Dave and Matt were super friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Upon meeting them, we all felt like they were long time friends we ran into and took up where we left off. They are great story tellers, know the area and people incredibly well, and are super conscientious. they have bikes to accommodate a range of riders. It was a highlight or our trip. It was special birthday for my wife and they went out of their way to make a signature birthday and incredibly special memory. I can't recommend them enough, you can't go wrong with Dave and Matt.

We had a wonderful day with Dave and Matt! They were attentive, supportive and fun all day, making sure our every need was met. The ride was a beautiful, meandering, rolling road and the two wineries were quiet, personalized, tasteful and interesting. Lunch was relaxing, gourmet and very delicious! It was the best way to see and experience Sonoma. Dave even recommended amazing things to see and do the next day, which brought so much value to our trip. Dave really cares about people and gives his all to ensure an amazing experience for everyone. We will cherish the memories of this day in Sonoma.

Absolutely awesome. Dave is an amazing host. Down to earth, easy to talk too and be with. The company is in the experience business — details matter. Dave was our guide, he cooked and prepared lunch in advance. Food was outstanding. He packed real plates and uses his grand mothers silverware (why not). Dave prepared his famous cheese board for one of the stops — it was perfect. The wine tastes much better with cheese and crackers. We visited Martorna Family Winery — met the owner, toured his wine shop, tasted wines pre-barrel. I can’t recommend this company enough. They are excellent at what they do and they care about you.

Jeff, Thank you for taking the time to write these kind words and share your experience(s). We have great winery partners that are happy to share their facility with you. That's why we choose to visit small family owned wineries. Hope we can connect in Indiana one day! Happy Holidays, Dave
