“Great winery tour, very knowledgeable”
Reviewed 13 July 2008

I booked Terrific Tours for a winery tour in sonoma valley and absolutely loved it. We went to great wineries from family-owned to some bigger ones. Every one was interesting and fun. This is the tour to take when you're in Sonoma.

“Fantastic Day With Trev”
Reviewed 10 July 2008

We had a group of 12 people from 21 years of age to early 60's (from CA, Virginia and Oregon) with varied interests in wine and we had a top notch day. Our day started with a winery tour led by the winemaker and three other wineries followed. We had a picnic lunch provided by the tour company that was perfect for a group of our size. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we would all recommend this tour to anyone looking for wine, fun and professionalism. Thanks Trevor for a great day.

“Great guides, delicious wines, fantastic day!”
Reviewed 23 June 2008

My wife and I had a fantastic time on our tour today with Trevor and Jake. Both were knowledgeable, unpretentious, relaxed, and professional. We toured four different wineries, had a nice picnic lunch (provided) and finished with "dessert" at Sonoma Valley Portworks (delicious - ask to have it included in your tour!).

Throughout the tour, they were very flexible, continuously gauging our level of knowledge, interest, and intoxication and tailoring our experience appropriately. I'm a bit of a beer snob and a homebrewer, and I appreciated that they were able to answer my more technical questions and relate familiar steps in the brewing process to wine making. When we were all a bit more tired and pleasantly buzzed, he was happy to lay off the teaching and just let us enjoy the scenery (or a nap, in some cases).

While the wineries we visited do provide free tastings for any guest coming through their doors, the tour provided the combination of education, transportation, insider treatment, good food, and good company that made it a great value.

Cheers to Terrific Tours, we'll be sure to tour again on our next visit to Sonoma!

“The Best of Sonoma”
Reviewed 23 June 2008

Trevor with Terrific Tours introduced us to Guy McKinsey, the owner of Colin Lee Vineyards (closed to the public). Trevor then drove us to Chateau St. Jean for a picnic lunch on the grounds.
We ended the afternoon at the family-owned tasting room of VJB Vineyards. Great people, great wines, great day! Would recommend this to the novice or connoisseur.

“Fantastic Wine Tour”
Reviewed 18 June 2008

Terrific tours made me look like a rock star.

I had to plan a day of wine tasting for 10 women.

I emailed Terrific Tours and they took care of everything!

Trevor picked us up at our rental house at 10:30 am.
-
-Winery choices- DONE. The choices were made for us and they were wonderful.

We went to four great wineries. Each one was very different but all had great wines, fantastic service and stunning views. We received special treatment because we were with Trevor.

Trevor spent time with us teaching us about the area, the wines we were drinking, how to taste wine, etc.

But when the girls started chatting, he knew when to chill out and stop talking about wine. As soon as someone had a question he was there to answer it for us.

We all came home with a bunch of wine, new knowledge and a great experience. If you are looking for a great tour and tour guide I HIGHLY recommend Terrific Tours.

Like I said...they made me look like a rock star. All the girls loved the tour and it was thanks to Trevor and Terrifc Tours. Thank you!
