Private Driver needed

Hi- I am taking my husband to San Fran for his 30th birthday in September, and am looking for a driver to pick us up at our hotel in Saucelito, take us to the vinyards in Sonoma, and drive us back home. There will be 6 passengers, and would love if the driver could help plan our itinerary while in Sonoma. I am from TN and have no clue about San Fran/Sonoma so any advice is welcomed.

I was also hoping to have his 30th birthday dinner somewhere cute in Sonoma, so recomendations are welcomed for those as well. Thanks soooo much- Im so lost on where to begin!

Meg, there are lots of companies in the area that can help you. Do a forum seach for reviews and rec's, or perhaps even better check with the conceirge at your lodging in Sausilito.

For potential dining venues in Sonoma, if you like the idea of a steakhouse, try Saddles at MacArthur Place; if you'd like something Italian, try Della Santinos; for something a bit more fancy, try Cafe LeHaye.

I can certainly vouch for Artisan Wine Tours. Based in the Sonoma Valley and they have a lux vehicle that perfectly fits the capacity you need. Owner has been collecting wine for twenty years in both the Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley. Rates have stayed the same for the last three years and they do NOT slap you with add-on charges such as auto gratuities, fuel surcharges or phony taxes/fees. They even DEADHEAD to Sausalito at NO CHARGE and drop you back home at NO CHARGE. All planning is part of the program. The only caveat is that this highly rated company fills out in Sept and they require that you spend time with them to plan the perfect day. No last minute paste-together itineraries - not in wine country in Sept. If you want great venues, you'll need appointments and a good idea of the types of places you'd like to visit and the wines you would like to try. Also, their website is full of good ideas. www.artisanwinetours.com
