A really well organized and fun group who made our week in Sonoma a truly memorable experience. Small group, well organized rides with no pressure to meet timelines, distances or deadlines!! Wine tasting choices were unique and tended to be smaller vineyard/wineries that were great!! Hotel choices, meals during day and recommended restaurants were first class. Highly recommend you consider... More

Thank you for the kind words! We truly believe this had to be the best week ever! The combination of the great weather, the fall colors in the vines, but most important, you guys-- our guests.

We had a wonderful time on the bikes. It was the perfect amount of time on the bike and in the wineries. Loved two of the three wineries we visited, Chateaul Monteleneau, Bennet Valley. Did not like the wines of Tedeschi, nice tour guide but didn't enjoy the wine. We enjoyed Tim and Eric as hosts, they were good. I... More

My husband and I were fortunate enough to be the only 2 people on this lovely ride in Carneros. We visited 3 wineries, after which AJ, our guide, offered to pick us up in the van and bring us back. The countryside is lovely and it was a really lovely way to see the area and sample wineries we would... More

My husband and I had a great time biking through Dry Creek Valley with another couple from NJ, and our guide Kevin. The weather was not very good (cool and drizzling) and we were given the option to turn our bike tour into a van tour, but it wasn't raining hard so we opted to see the beautiful area via... More

Patrick was our guide, and he was outstanding! We had a great time, kayaking the river and watching the waves on the coast. Lunch was a bonus! Would definitely recommend this to others! One thing to watch... The address provided to check in is actually for a different kayak company. The other firm was disorganized and clueless, happily offering to... More

My wife and I spent the week in Healdsburg and decided, on one of the days, we would let someone else do the driving on a guided tour.

We did the Calistoga Sip n'Cycle as a couple. First off, we had an awesome guide who really knew the area and the bikes were in good condition. Our guide prepared a nice picnic lunch in a great setting at one of the vineyards. The terrain was easy and mostly avoided busy roads. We could not fault this at all,... More

We toured Carneros region on bikes. Great, great time! Wonderful lunch overlooking the valley with great wines, good food and lots of laughs. Highly recommended. Tour guides Kevin and AJ were well prepared, appropriately attentive and very knowledgeable not only about wines and vineyards but also the area. We wished we would have booked two days with them!
