Sonoma County is a beautiful place to visit, rolling vineyards and wine tasting. The quaint atmosphere enticed Alfred Hitchcock to pick Sonoma County as his settings for "Shadow of a Doubt" and "The Birds". He saw something darker in the morning fog and beautiful countryside.
You will learn about the history of Sonoma County and the film locations, stories from the shoots themselves and see some beautiful scenery along the tour.
Local pick-up & drop off.
