We booked a tour with Sid for our annual girls trip, which was in Sonoma this year. Sid really helped make this one of the best trips we have ever taken. We went to three different wineries, including a very special and private tasting at a small winery, including a tour of their organic gardens, all of their wine making facilities, and time with the owners and winemakers. We stopped along the way to pick up lunch at JimTown Store, and enjoyed a beautiful view atop the caves of the second winery on our tour. Sid was knowledgeable, professional, flexible, and really created an amazing day for us. He even went out of his way to help us select a dinner location, and made arrangements for another private tasting the following day. I wouldn't hesitate to book another tour with him the next time I am in Sonoma.

I had booked other tours in the past with another company and they were very good, but Sid was over the top! We were visiting with friends and wanted a more private experience versus the group tour. Sid was very focused on customer service! He was on time, and we never felt rushed at any of the vineyards. We liked him so much we booked him for the next day and given the short amount of time he had to make reservations he did an outstanding job! We really enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend him!

Just got back from our family trip to Sonoma. It was my first time there and I'm sure the reason we enjoyed it so much was because of Sid and the two absolutely perfect days he planned for us. We visited 8 wineries (in two days) and he arranged private tastings and tours for us at each of the wineries. All of the wineries he chose were wonderful and so different from one another. He really made sure to plan out every detail so that the day would run smoothly. He is professional, knowledgeable, and just a cool, laid-back guy you'd want to spend the day with. I would definitely recommend booking a tour rather than figuring it out on your own -- not only do you get insider knowledge and access/tours you wouldn't get otherwise, you get a DD, too!

We spent 3 days in Healdsburg for our honeymoon. Being from Oregon, we are fairly knowledgeable about NW wine country and had hopes of learning about California wines. Joe and Healdsburg Wine Tour were one our highlights of the trip. They talked with us about the types of wines we enjoy and what we wanted from our day. They tailored the tour to us and far exceeded our expectations. We tasted great wines, visited amazing wineries and learned a lot. We will definitely be connecting with them again, and highly recommend them for a wonderful day in wine country!

This was a truly exceptional stop on our tour through the Sonoma valley. The wine tasting was excellent (and--very unusual these days--free) but the education about wine making from the owner was amazing. We sampled some tanks where the grapes had just begun to ferment to compare the varietal characteristics to the wine we were tasting--wonderful. This was absolutely the best stop on our tour and I would absolutely go back again!
