History with a Scoop of Ice Cream!

Track the fascinating life of Don Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo in a fast-paced, unforgettable 1.5 hours that reveals how Sonoma and the players in the Wild West, helped turn what was Mexico into the state of California. Learn about the four Native American Indian tribes that occupied the land first and how their lives were forever changed. What was Sonoma’s role in regards to the gold rush and do we really have secret tunnels with an entire town below the plaza? What did women do in Sonoma back in the 1800’s? What about ghosts? This must-experience Wine-Country-history-tour includes inspiring visits to The Soldier’s Barracks, The Depot Museum, The Toscano Hotel, The Historic Sonoma Plaza and unexpected locations even locals don’t know.

We also offer high-end Napa Valley Tours that pair gourmet food with wine. Visit our Napa and Sonoma wine country tour page to locate our Sonoma Food and Wine Tour.
