The Sonoma Valley is world renowned for its amazing location, stunning weather, and, of course, vineyards as far as the eye can see! But wine tasting is just one of the amazing Sonoma Valley attractions that brings tourists to the area. In addition to Sonoma’s close proximity to San Francisco, via the Golden Gate Bridge, Sonoma County offers something for everyone in the family. Sonoma is home to everything from the coastline of the Pacific Ocean, to the famous redwood forests, guaranteeing a special adventure for all.

The first thing anyone ever hears about the Sonoma and Napa Valleys are its wonderful wineries and world class tasting rooms, but the truth is, you don’t have to wait for the children to turn 21 years old to enjoy your family vacation in Sonoma, California.

Helicopter Tours of Sonoma

The best way to see the entire Sonoma Valley is to fly over it in exclusive luxury! With the help of Sonoma Helicopter Tours, you and the entire family can enjoy the California sun and scenery with the added exhilaration of a helicopter. With tours offering our clients spectacular views and exclusive access to mountain vineyards, there is no better way to tour the area with the added bonus of your own personal pilot!

If the wine and spectacular views don’t relax you completely, Sonoma Helicopter Tours has partnered with Soulstice Spa to offer the client a very relaxing, custom massage for two. With a helicopter ride, wine tastings, and customs massages, Sonoma Valley has never been more personalized and welcoming.

Safari West

I have made mention of the fact that the whole family can enjoy Sonoma Valley, not just the 21 year olds of the group, and with Safari West we can truly promise a one of a kind adventure for the entire family. For the first time, guests of Sonoma can experience an interactive journey through the African Serengeti without leaving the heart of wine country.

With over 700 different animals, including giraffes, zebras, antelopes, and cheetahs, Safari West is perfect for all ages. The tour, lasting about 3 hours, is both a walking and riding tour of the 400-acre grounds.
