You’ll be greeted by a knowledgable and friendly guide to check you into your walking tour. Our experience starts with stories from California history that relates directly to the landmarks that dot the Sonoma Plaza as well as our path to the first restaurant, The girl and the fig. We visit four notable restaurants that offer contrasting courses to pair with local Sonoma wine. Our finale takes place with local, artisan chocolate at one of two special-ending locations depending on our group size and the day of the week you select.
