Take a VIP tour of San Francisco’s thriving food scene and meet some of the hottest chefs in the city. You’ll also explore the hippest San Fran neighbourhoods on a bespoke guided tour. The Sonoma and Napa valleys are dotted with world-renowned wineries. Taste the best vintages on exclusive visits, and explore the surroundings on a guided bike tour. Top things off with a sunrise hot air balloon trip over the Napa Valley.

UK - San Francisco

Welcome to sublime San Francisco, one of the world’s most striking cities, and one of its most delicious – there’s a well-established, thriving and diverse foodie scene here. From the luxurious Cavallo Point Lodge, you’re perfectly placed to taste it.

San Francisco

Delve straight in with an edible excursion along the Mission’s Valencia corridor, a rapidly changing food landscape that’s home to some of the trendiest new ventures. There’ll be no queues, of course, and you’ll meet the chefs and storeowners to gain the ultimate insider access. Take a tour of the city’s many neighbourhoods too, from Lombard Street to Lincoln Park, Ocean Beach to Golden Gate Park, China Town to Fisherman’s Wharf – it can be customised to suit your preferences and your palate.

San Francisco to Sonoma

Ideal for the food enthusiast, today explores the history of how West Marin and Point Reyes became an agricultural hub in California. Learn about this incredible area while enjoying fresh baked bread and local olive oils. After your multiple cheese tastings, head to Hog Island Oyster Co. for an experience in sustainable oyster farming. Taste both their fresh oysters and BBQ oysters harvested directly from the farm. Your last stop will be a regenerative, organic farm for the chance to harvest seasonal vegetables and fruit alongside the farmer. 


Enjoy a private wine tour, visiting the vineyards of Flowers vineyard and Capo Creek for exclusive tours and tastings. These are iconic estates, which offer panoramic views of the surroundings.

Sonoma to Napa Valley

Explore Yountville on two wheels, cycling between the small inns and out into the fertile countryside beyond. Between olive oil tastings and farm visits, stop for a delightful picnic lunch.  After your morning bike ride, enjoy a private tour, tasting and cooking class at Peju Vineyards.

Napa Valley

Close by you will find the perfect launchpad for a truly once-in-a-lifetime hot-air balloon flight – lift off at dawn to drift peacefully over the Napa Valley as the rising sun hits the vines below. This afternoon visit Promontory Vineyard – experience a private tasting of these incredible wines and enjoy the history and views of this Napa Valley gem.


Head back to San Francisco for your flight home – or extend your stay in the city.
