Pick up from SF center just off Union square, comfortable mini bus, 3 small but interesting wineries in Sonoma (4 or 5 would be better, but driving there took a while), no extra tasting fees, pleasant ferry ride back to the Ferry Terminal in SF. Recommended.

The reason I like this company is because the tour guides are so knowledgeable and passionate about wine. They love wine and it is evident in their knowledge base and the wineries they stop at. They will do the bigger wineries, but are not afraid to step aside and visit the smaller wineries doing interesting things.

We had a great tour with our fantastic guide Kimya. 9 Texans plus 3 Brits made a fun day! We went to 4 wineries. The best was the Larson Family winery with our server Nick. None of our group were wine enthusiasts but we never felt out of place. Nice ferry ride back to SF.

The receptionist Brenda was very kind. We misunderstood the meeting point but she guided us gently.
Our guide & driver Dan Wood was super! He knows everything about wine and Sonoma area.
We visitied 4 wineriey, all of them are famiry run small cosy winery.
We were welcomed as VIPs, and served enough wines.
I am sure to choose this tour again.

My wife and I have taken a tour with Terrific twice in the last year and half. On the first tour we had Steve who was an excellent guide and really took into account the group's diverse taste and knowledge of wine. The second time we utilized Terrific was on a private tour for 6 with Trevor. Trevor was excellent and very informative while taking us to numerous wineries and even staying later than planned to "squeeze" in one last beer tasting. Trevor was also very knowledgeable in local food and attractions many of which he recommended. One point I would offer as constructive criticism is that Terrific should evaluate a better way for the drivers to communicate to the passengers while driving. (The mic worked OK, but at times could be hard to hear in the back) All in all this is a excellent outfit that I would highly recommend especially due to their friendly and very knowledgeable staff.
