Traveler Tips

  • "If riding in a SUPER COOL, vintage VW bus (that backfires occasionally) through beautiful wine country and hanging out with fun people isn't your thing, you should look for a tour somewhere else." See review
  • "Very good tour guide from Painted Ladies, at some of the wineries it went a bit fast though to be able to reflect over what wine you actually tasted but that is rather up to the winery guide." See review
  • "The day was really well planned; stop at the Golden Gate Bridge, a winery, lunch, a winery with cave tour, another winery, and then a chocolate shop!" See review

The highlight of our trip!
, Apr 2022
Let me start off by saying this wine tour was the absolute best part of our entire trip! My friends and I went a girls' trip to San Francisco in March 2022 and wanted to visit wine country without having to worry about renting a vehicle, finding a sober driver, figuring out what wineries to visit etc., so we booked a tour with Painted Ladies and it was absolutely amazing, I don't even know where to begin. Gürkan was our guide and he was the very best! We had such a great time with him and he went above and beyond to make the day special for all of us. Along with that, the other people in our group were so incredible! We started off the day as complete strangers and by the end of our tour it felt like we had been friends for years. We ended up spending the rest of the day together and hit the town as a group that night and had the best time! This tour was amazing and a memory I will cherish the rest of my life; I cannot recommend enough and will definitely do it again someday!

The VW van was amazing and our guide Gürkan had the answers to all our questions about Wineries and everything West Coast. Would not tour Wineries any other way than like this.Small group Friendly and welcoming.
Great time, but wish we had time for downtown sanoma
, Nov 2021
We enjoyed the wine tour. We were disappointed that we didn’t get to see or spend time in downtown Sonoma. We were at the wineries for a very long time, so it seems that could be shortened to give time for this. Our tour guide, Armando was fantastic.
Wine with the girls

We loved it! The wineries were cute and the food was good. We had a blast singing in the VW bus on the way back. There was a spectacular view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Would highly recommend!
Excellent time!!!

We had a great time on this trip and would highly recommend spending a day of your San Francisco trip doing this. Loved all the stops on the tour and really enjoyed the wine. The VW bus was so cute and our driver was very knowledgeable.

Due to illness my daughter and I couldn’t go on our scheduled date. Tried to reschedule but got no response

So sorry AnnMarie that you had to cancel your tour last minute. We have all our customer sign a covid waiver where it says clearly if you show signs of covid symptoms we can not allow you on the tour as we protect the health and wellbeing of all our passengers on our tour, including our guide. Our guide had been communicating with you back and forth and with us as well. We offered it as a credit for future use but you were only in town for a few days. I hope you can understand we follow the CDC guidelines and well as the 24 hr Viator/TripAdvisor cancelation policy. We hope a speedy recovery for you and your daughter . Be well.
A memorable 10 out of 10 experience!
, Sep 2021
We did a wine tour in Sonoma/Napa with our amazing tour guide - Armando. I’ve been wine tasting many times but this was my favorite wine tasting experience. The weather, the company, the guide and of course the mode of transportation (a 1974 VW bus named Buttercup) …. everything was top notch!
