Frequently Asked Questions

We know you will have many questions about our adventures and have tried to answer the most common ones here. In addition, we will send you a detailed Pre-Departure Packet about your Sonoma Vineyard Walk upon registration.

Am I fit enough to go on these Walks? You should be able to walk for three miles at a leisurely pace to participate, although most of the walks can be customized to be shorter.

When do I have to pay and what if I have to cancel? Please see our Details page.

Do you recommend travel insurance? We highly recommend trip cancellation insurance for our Three-Day Vacations to protect yourself against unforeseen circumstances. Every year there are unfortunate incidents with dozens of travelers that make it impossible for them to join our adventures. Many of these people lose their trip and airline payments. Even if you do not think this will happen to you, it can! We will send you information on travel insurance after you register. No trip insurance is available for One-Day Walks.

What is included in the trip price? See our Details page.

How do I get to the area? You are responsible for getting to and from the walk location and must have your own transportation. We will send you directions to your walks in the Pre-Departure Packet.

What will the weather be like and what if it is bad during our walk? The great thing about Sonoma wine country is that every season is a fantastic time to visit.  Spring and fall offer excellent weather and moderate crowds.  While summer can be hot, with highs in the upper 80s, there is almost no rain.  Winter can be wet but temperatures are moderate with highs in the upper 50s and you will have the vineyards and hotels practically to yourself.  In case of rain, we wear the proper clothes and walk anyway!

Can I purchase a gift certificate for a friend? Sonoma Vineyard Walks make a great gift for active wine enthusiasts or those interested to learn more about wine.  Please visit our Gift Certificate page.

How can I apply to be a guide? If you are interested to work for us, please see our Guide Application. Please note guides for our Sonoma Vineyard Walks must be based locally.
