Award Winning Tours

Green Dream Tours began in 2008 and has been welcoming visitors to the Bay Area with fun and memorable tours of San Francisco and Wine Country ever since.
Over the years, our wine tasting tours became more and more popular, and so we decided to focus exclusively on them. Fast forward a few years and Green Dream Tours is now a top-rated Wine Country tour and has been awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence five years running, adding us to their Hall of Fame!

Teamwork and Quality

They say teamwork makes the “green” dream work, and that’s absolutely true for us! Elie, the company founder works alongside his business partner Erin to ensure they deliver the best range of public and private wine country tours.

We build close relationships with the region’s best wineries, and keep our tour groups small to ensure a relaxed, intimate and friendly experience. Our passionate guides and well-maintained fleet of transport ensures guests are comfortable, safe and well cared for.

Keeping it Green

 We are proud to be a sustainable,  carbon neutral company. We incorporate green practices into our business like recycling and minimizing waste, and we purchase carbon offsets to balance our fuel use.
