Dustin was amazing! He was not only friendly, timely, and respectful, but also very knowledgeable. Every part of the trip was throught through. He struck a great balance between educating us along the way, and allowing time to relax and enjoy the scenery. The order of events was also well thought out, with attention put into music choice, timing at each venue and how to make it all fun. I would highly recommend him.

This tour was so fun! Kimmy was our tour guide and she was so funny. She constantly was throwing jokes and making everyone laugh. My husband and I were on our honeymoon and enjoyed every second of it. We even got a free glass of champagne! Would highly recommend to anyone!

We enjoyed the tastings. Our guide, Mark, was superb in his knowledge of the wine country and history of San Francisco. We also treasured the visits to Sonoma and Sausolito.
