Right from the start we knew that we were going to have a fantasy time when we met our tour guide Anja, she was friendly, witty and very knowledgeable and she knew exactly how to get a bunch of strangers to feel comfortable with each other and with her. The tour was amazing and well worth the cost. The Sonoma Valley is beautiful, the vineyards that we visited were interesting and informative with a good selection of wines to sample. Lunch in the Sonoma Plaza was delicious, we ate in The Girl and the Fig and I can highly recommend the Charcuterie Board. After the last visit to a vineyard we had a short time in Sausalito for a walk and an ice cream. We met some grey people, tasted some lovely wines and learned a lot of things about wine and the area. Thank you Anja.

Following a prompt pickup from outside our Hotel in San Francisco, we were greeted by the very personable Anthony who was our guide for the day. Taking us a scenic route out of the city, we were treated to some very informative information, often combined with some very amusing personal experience stories which made the journey to the Sonoma Valley pass in no time. We also stopped at a beautiful spot under the GG bridge for photos which was a very welcome addition.

We visited three Vineyards, Homewood, Peter Cellars and Mayo Family.

The three Vineyards are considered boutique based on cases produced offered completely different experiences, which we found kept things fresh through the day.

It is clear Anthony's working relationship/friendship with all three means they are all very accommodating and willing to go beyond what would normally be expected in a Wine tasting session. Although the Wineyards are there to sell Wine, there was no forceful selling and the laid back attitude in all three meant we bough more bottles than we probably would have otherwise.

The whole days was very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable, I have no hesitation recommending Edge of the World to anyone visiting San Francisco and will book with them agai when we return to the Bay area for another trip to Wine Country.

Cheers Anthony, James & Laura.

Since we were staying in the suburbs outside of San Fran, we were provided with a pick up location by Edge of World which, worked out perfectly.
My husband and I had an exceptional experience with our group and Anthony, our guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about The Bay Area, Sonoma County and not to mention, an absolute delight. You can hear the passion in his voice. He chose 3 boutique wineries with unique nuances. The third however, was less than exciting.
We chose to eat in Sonoma at a wonderful Portuguese Tapas restaurant. Food was delicious and quick service. If you don’t feel like looking up options prior to arrival, Anthony can provide great recommendations.
To round off the tour, Anthony provided us with alternative options to return to our destination (e.g Be dropped off at Fisherman’s Wharf or return to our pick up spot.)
We would highly recommend this tour if you’re looking for a more intimate experience with smaller, family owned wineries and smaller groups.
Thank you again Edge of World and Anthony! We hope to return again soon!

Short version: lovely experience, fun lunch stop, small intimate wineries with generous sized tastings. Totally recommend if that's the vibe you're going for!

We were accompanied by Anthony, our guide, a lovely Brit with fun uncle energy. The drive out to Sonoma (over GG bridge and through Sausalito) was incredibly scenic. The wineries had a very small feel to them since they are boutique and we did not linger at any singular place for too long. We ate at La Casa for lunch and it was pretty damn good.

I totally second the reviews that mentioned Anthony as their favorite part. He is so amiable and funny. You know he has done these tours a million times, so it makes it even more special that he seemingly approaches each one with renewed energy and excitement. He took special care to learn our names, where we were from, and was overall a knowledgeable guide of the city, wines, and anything else you were bold enough to ask him. If given the chance, I would totally book another tour with this company just to hang out with Anthony again!

Couldn’t have asked for a better tour. Anthony is the perfect guide, making you feel like you’re out for a drive with friends and not on a tour. He knows his SF and wine country like he was born here, but surprise, this native of Britain relays all that info in a silky smooth accented radio voice. Don’t go with one of those massive bus tours and to all the fancy name wineries. Our shuttle picked us up from the hotel and we had one other cdn couple, and a family of 5 from Britain. We all got to know each other fast which made for a fun trip. Anthony took us to three boutique wineries and the information you get from smaller dedicated winemakers is far better than any high quantity wineries I’ve been to. If you’re sitting down looking at all the different tours you could take, just stop now and book this one.

This was an amazing tour!! We got to experience wine country and visit three incredible wineries. Each winery offered something a little different, and I appreciated the variety. Our guide, Anthony, knew so much about San Francisco and taught us about the history of CA winemaking. Everything ran smoothly on the tour, and it exceeded my expectations. We even stopped for lunch in a beautiful plaza with lots of restaurants and shops. I highly recommend booking this tour if you are looking to go wine tasting while in San Francisco. You will not be disappointed, and it is well worth your time/money!

Wonderful and relaxing experience. Our tour guide Anthony's charm and wit immediately put our tour group of 9 at ease and the tour very quickly felt like an outing among friends. More importantly, though, Anthony was knowledgeable about all things San Francisco and wine. He had a story to tell about virtually every street corner in the city and also did a great job preparing us for what to expect at the wineries we were about to visit. We visited three boutique wineries with a broad range of offerings. There was something for virtually everyone in the group and although there was no pressure to buy virtually all of us bought some wine.

Great tour! The tour guide Nick was great, very knowledgeable and friendly. The wine tastings were great. I expected them to have a little charcuterie board or something but it was just the wine lol. It was a really hot day so being outside for the tastings got a little uncomfortable. The stop in downtown Sonoma for lunch was great as there were a lot of restaurant options. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Highly recommend this tour!!! From the moment we were picked up from our hotel, Anthony had us laughing and engaged in all the fun and quirky facts about San Francisco, Sausalito, and Sonoma. He made an effort to point out interesting places along the way and made a bunch of great recommendations. At each winery we were met by people who were fun, engaging and clearly passionate about wine. Overall it was one of our favorite days in San Francisco , on our mom and sisters girls trip. Additionally, Anthony was willing to take plenty of photos of everyone at each stop. I was impressed by the communication prior to the trip with Marc from the Company contacting me days before to make sure we had information about the hotel pickup. The van picked us up exactly as communicated and the whole day was perfectly scheduled. Book this tour now!!

Three boutique wineries were visited each providing ample tastings with descriptions of the wines. I loved the tidbits of information Anthony provided about San Francisco and the surrounding areas. It made the trip so much better. It was a small group of people that became friends while enjoying wine. If you want a more intimate experience at small wineries with the "winemaker" sharing details about their love for winemaking and the finished product, this tour is for you!! Being picked up and dropped off at our hotel was a huge bonus as well. It was a great experience.
