San Francisco

Welcome to sublime San Francisco, one of the world’s most striking cities. Pick up your hire car when you arrive and head for your central base at the St. Regis hotel. It’s perfectly placed for getting out and exploring the city’s diverse and thriving food scene.

San Francisco

Delve straight in with an edible excursion along the Mission’s Valencia corridor, a rapidly changing food landscape. There’ll be no queues, of course, and you’ll meet the chefs and proprietors with your ultimate insider access. Take a tour of the city’s many eclectic neighbourhoods, from Lincoln Park to Lombard, Ocean Beach to Golden Gate Park, and Chinatown to Fisherman’s Wharf. Everything can be tailored to suit your preferences and your palate.


Centered around a plaza built when the area was still part of Mexico, historic Sonoma lies at the heart of wine country. Head off from San Francisco for a two-night stay at Farmhouse Inn, set amid vines and vintners. You’ll stop for lunch at a lovely bistro en route. Enjoy a private wine tour, visiting the Repris, Kamen and Donum Estate vineyards for exclusive tours and tastings. Then explore the leafy surroundings on a guided bike trip around Sonoma.


Squeeze in a couple more private tastings at McKenzie Mueller Winery and Caldwell Vineyards before continuing to the foodie hub of Yountville. You’ll spend two nights at the Bardessono Hotel, the self-proclaimed ‘greenest luxury hotel in America’. It’s the perfect launchpad for an unforgettable sunrise hot air balloon flight over the Napa Valley. After a revitalising lunch, take to two wheels and explore Yountville’s small inns and fertile countryside by bike.

San Francisco

Head back to San Francisco for your flight home, or extend your stay in the city. If you have time, we recommend taking a trip to Alcatraz to tour the famous prison, or riding a historic cable car up and down the hilly streets. Across the bay, the pretty waterfront town of Sausalito is always worth a visit. The ferry back to San Francisco offers wonderful skyline views.
