Wine Country Plus – Tours That Give You Two Activities In One

We love tours that combine a delicious day in the Wine Country with another iconic San Francisco activity — Alcatraz, Muir Woods, shopping!

It's a great idea to double-up the pleasure, and the fun. Since Napa and Sonoma Valleys (and other areas of California Wine Country) are close to San Francisco, it's easy to fit two things into one fun-filled day.


Alcatraz & Wine Country Combined Tour

Alcatraz and Wine Country Combined Tour

Enjoy the best worlds — spend time in prison and sip on iconic California wines. This one combines wine tasting in the Sonoma Valley with a trip to Alcatraz.

Your day begins at Fisherman's Wharf, where you hop on board a luxury mini-bus headed for Sonoma. There you taste award-winning wines at two family-owned wineries. Once your leisurely wine activity is done, you head back to Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 33 to catch the ferry to Alcatraz. Take your time on a tour of the prison and island, listening to the Alcatraz audio guide. Once you're tired of prison life, catch the ferry back to the mainland. The Sonoma tour is limited to 13 people, ensuring individual attention.

Muir Woods + Wine Country Tour

Muir Woods + Wine Country Tour

Combine two exceptional activities in the course of a single day — Wine Country wine tasting and Muir Woods!

Start the morning with an invigorating hike through Muir Woods National Monument, exploring the Giant Redwood sequoia forest. Then depart for Napa Valley and Sonoma County for an afternoon of wine tasting at houses like Madonna Estate Winery and Cline Cellars.

On the trip back to the city, you have the option of being dropped off in Sausalito to take the ferry back to San Francisco. The tour includes hotel pick-up and return, wine tastings and free time to explore Muir Woods.


2-Day Muir Woods and Wine Country Tour

2-Day Muir Woods and Wine Country Tour

Take the time to go deeper. Do a bit of hiking in Muir Woods National Monument and explore Northern California's wine country on this leisurely 2-day getaway.

With a mix of guided sightseeing and free time, this tour lets you experience the best of Wine Country as well as the natural wonders of Muir Woods. Enjoy award-winning wines and learn about the wine-making process from vine to bottle. You stay at a charming hotel in downtown Sonoma and explore the town on your own. Includes transportation to and from San Francisco, hotel accommodation and wine tastings at up to 8 wineries.

Shop 'Til You Drop – Then Taste Wine!

Shop Til You Drop

What could be better than combining shopping at discount prices with a Napa Valley Wine Tasting? We couldn't think of anything, either, which is why we love the idea of this one-day activity. Get picked up at your SF hotel and whisked out to the Vacaville Premium Outlets shopping center to find bargains galore. After 4 hours of that, it's great to travel on over to the Napa Valley for an afternoon of tasting fine wines.
