Wow! Such fun! Armando was not just delightful in in entertaining us and adept at encouraging 3 pairs of strangers to bond and but knowledgable about wine and wine country too. We so enjoyed the wine and food at VJB in their Italian piazza and the extra bonus of chocolate and opera made the day!

Painted Ladies Wine Country Tour is a must-do for locals and visitors alike!
Sep 2021
What a fabulous trip!!! Every moment of our wine tour was so relaxing and fun. Our guide, Cousin Al, took care of us all day. The wineries we visited were so inviting. It felt great to arrive and find reserved seating waiting for us. Deerfield is a must visit! The cave tasting is to die for! VJB was also wonderful. A highlight was the accordion player and Italian serenade. We can't wait to do another tour.

Pickles & the Shaggy Mobile - A MUST DO!
What a day - fun, fun, fun from start to finish! Loved everything about the Shaggy mobile & Pickles (Gurt - our guide for the day!) We rocked the van all the way from San Fran & back. The 3 wineries were a good choice. We are bit more experienced wine drinkers and Pickles was very knowledgeable. I wish the first winery which was in the cave would have given a bit more information on wines though. Highly recommend this tour for a fun day in Wine country!

Great wine and people!
We had an amazing experience! Cousin Al was a wonderful guide with great energy and patience (there was a lot of music and bad signing on the way home). We did the shared tour and became great friends with the other ladies on the bus. The vineyards were beautiful and the wine was delicious. We came for the wine but Cousin Al and the great company were the highlights of the trip!

Ask for Cousin Al
Aug 2021 • Friends
We had a great time with Cousin Al and 5 other ladies today. Cousin Al made everyone relax with his kidding around. By the end of the day, everyone felt like friends. The choice of wineries were great, especially loved the wine cave. Would recommend anyone interested in going to Sonoma, to book this tour with Cousin Al. Riding in the VW bus is an experience that brings back great memories.

Best tour ever
Aug 2021 • Friends
We had the most amazing day in Sonoma with Cousin Al and the Painted Ladies Bus, Ocean! He handled all aspects of the trip and brought us to three amazing wineries while giving us tons of cool info about wine country and “The City.” Best tour guide ever, if you’re in SF you need to do this tour.
