Private and Custom Experiences

Private Tours are booked at the price of a six person tour in the town of your choosing.  While we charge the same price as we would for a public tour, we do collect the gratuity for our guides ( 18% ) at the time of booking to secure your day and time slot.

We will make you look like an event planner extraordinaire!

We love guiding for groups who are looking for a more custom experience. Our Private & Custom Group Tours are the perfect way to get a taste of Wine Country, Sausalito or Tiburon while enjoying the company of friends, family or co-workers. We are happy to tailor a unique culinary experience to your group's needs. Be it a corporate team building event or a social gathering for 2-48 people, we create fun and unique bonding experiences for your group while you relax and enjoy yourself!

  • Private Group Tours are perfect for team building functions, corporate outings, networking events and happy hour socials
  • Half-day vs. entire day tours at custom times when possible
  • Meeting space available on request prior to tour
  • We have a large corporate client list that entrusts us time and time again.

We absolutely do! We can accommodate a variety of special requests (family reunions, Birthday parties, out of town guests, corporate, conventions, festivals, parades, grand openings and more).

Please be sure and let us know if you (or anyone in your group) has a dietary restriction (e.g. vegetarian, diabetic, allergy, etc.) when you purchase your tickets. As long as we know in advance, we can accommodate your needs.

To maximize your chances of getting the day, time, and number of tickets you prefer, please book well in advance. Tickets can only be purchased with a Visa, AMEX, or MasterCard from our website or by calling. Cash and/or walk-up traffic the day of the tours are not accepted.

A half a glass of wine is provided with each restaurant or sit-down location. For Port, you will receive a dessert glass full.

The food and wine pairings were amazing, the attention to detail was superb, and it was a nice change from hopping from one vineyard to another. We even went back to one of the food stops for dinner!
