ITINERARY

RedwoodsSpend the day exploring the giant redwoods, rolling hills, and placid vineyards of Sonoma County!

Start your morning with a stop in the Marin Headlands, part of the Golden Gate Recreation Area, to take in exceptional views of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay. Then it’s off to Armstrong Woods to walk through redwood forests replete with enormous trees over 300 ft. high and more than 1,400 years old! Unlike Muir Woods, the Armstrong Reserve allows guides into the park, and still retains quiet corners, particularly on weekdays. Learn about the forest ecosystems that spring up in the shade of the reserve’s giant trees on an interpretive nature walk with your guide.

Spend the rest of the day wine tasting through Sonoma’s best boutique wineries. One of the defining features of the Sonoma County Wine Region is its variety. There are 16 distinct American Viticultural Areas in the county, growing more than 50 types of grapes, the most common being Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. You’ll sample a range of wines as your guide explains how climate and soil conditions produce distinct and delicious varietals. You’ll also learn tasting techniques used to identify the characteristics of a wine and heighten your tasting experience!

Lunch is included in the tour. Dietary needs can also be accommodated with advance notice.

Escape Vehicle at Olympic National ParkEvergreen Escapes blends the best natural wonders, boutique wineries, and urban enchantments into small group day tours and private, custom escapes. We’re a small business with a Big Mission: to create positive change in the world by connecting people with places and nature. Our guides aren’t just naturalists, they’re Escape Artists.

1. What should we wear/bring on our escape?

  • Because Pacific Northwest weather can change often, we recommend wearing removable layers. We also suggest wearing good walking shoes so you can explore further at some of our stops. Finally, it’s always a good idea to bring sunglasses and a camera!  We provide reusable water bottles, along with other snacks and refreshments. You can also view our Pack and Prepare page for more information.

2. How strenuous is this? How much experience do I need to have?

  • All of our scheduled departures are meant for beginners (easy to moderate). Therefore, we try to cater our tours to all ability and interest levels, which depends on the group that day. Your Escape artist will choose the difficulty of the activity based on the group’s interest and ability level. If you are interested in a different level, we can also put together a private itinerary for you. Finally, don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions!

3. Can I have vegetarian/ special diet food?

  • Yes, please advise us if you have any food restrictions or requests. If we know in advance, we can accommodate vegetarian and lactose-free diets. We can also accommodate gluten free diets when given enough notice.

4. What is your Cancellation Policy?


5. Should I get Travel Insurance?

  • We suggest that you do. Travel insurance can be purchased to cover penalty costs if you need to cancel or change your travel plans (subject to approval of claim by the insurer). It also can provide medical and emergency protection, as well as some loss and delay coverage. Travel insurance can be purchased directly from Evergreen Escapes.


6. Should I tip my guide?

  • We take great pride in delivering memorable adventures for each and every client. As a result, sometimes our clients are inspired to show their appreciation in the form of a gratuity. While tips are not an expectation, our guides traditionally receive an amount consistent with the rest of the service industry in the U.S., somewhere between 10% and 20%.
