    Our trip was great, our guide Adam is what made it so special. There were 3 wineries chosen, and 2 were exceptional. Peter Cellars was a disappointment and cannot understand why it was part of the boutique wine tour. Just a suggestion for the future - By putting onions and tomatoes on the sandwiches, the taste of the onion was overpowering and the sandwiches a bit soggy after being in the cooler for several hours prior to lunchtime.

It was a beautiful way to check out the bay!! Very organized, comfortable and on time. The only thing we thought of to make it even better was to have an "adult only" sailing. There were so many small kids running around, my husband and I really didn't like that and it made the environment less enjoyable. Their parents were not watching and/or disciplining them. As parents of a college bound teenager - we prefer to not have small kids on our activities so we'd be the first to sign up for an adult only tour.

This cruise was great! The crew made this trip absolutely amazing. They even offered to take pictures for everyone in front of the golden gate bridge and we got to see a beautiful sunset. 10/10 would recommend

So fun! Beautiful views. Awesome boat and crew. Definitely bring warm clothes. Thanks for having extra jackets!

the crew was very informative and prepared for our trip, even providing extra jackets if needed

Had a blast! Great views. Really fun crew. Best way to experience the Bsy.
