2. San Francisco: Redwood & Wine Country Tour with Lunch & Wine

On this full-day tour you will spend 1-hour walking in the shadows of the world's tallest trees before learning about the history, craft, and science of winemaking in California’s lovely wine country. Begin your tour with a visit to Muir Woods National Monument (or an alternative park) ahead of the crowds.

It was very nice to have someone drive you and explain about everything we saw on the way. In every winery they were waiting for us and greet us with the wine tasting and we didn’t have to worry about drinking and driving or picking up the winery

Kimmy was the one who made the experience a 10/10. Such an amazing and sweet woman and was such a pleasure to have her tell me everything she knew about San Francisco.

Was an excellent tour. Dustin was really nice and fun all day. He gave us a lot of good tips about the wine tasting and food time. Really worthwhile experience.

It was a raspy fun tour where we could try loads of different wines. I highly recommend joining this tour - great value for money.

It is a great tour to give you a little taste of the beauty in the area and the diverse wines available.
