Tom Scott is a self described “oenophile” and “foodie”. He has been guiding with Getaway for more than seven years, the longest of any of our guides, and his knowledge of the area’s wine is almost encyclopedic. Feel free to converse with Tom Scott in any of the 8 languages he speaks fluently, from German to Spanish to Mandarin to Urdu, and no topic is taboo. Be assured, if you tour with Tom you are in the hands of a true expert.
Tommy is about as laid back as they come, and he is a wealth of wine knowledge. When he walks into a tasting room, the staff is always thrilled to see him and his guests. When he’s not biking all over Sonoma and Napa, Tommy also loves to go abalone diving and hunting, and he is an accomplished mushroom hunter as well! He’s a great guide for any foodies out there.

Maria worked with Getaway Adventures many years ago, and has recently rejoined us. She is avidly involved in many local environmental projects, so she loves that Getaway Adventures is an eco-friendly way to enjoy Wine Country. She enjoys spending time outdoors with her son when she is not on tour.
Currently finishing up school to become a medical assistant, Jesse has been with Getaway Adventures for a few years. He loves getting out on the river and showing guests the natural beauty of Wine Country from the seat of a kayak. Jesse has lived in many different places, but says that the beauty of this area are what makes it his favorite, and he wants to make it one of your favorites too!
Bill has a full time sales job and is a huge mountain biker- but when we can convince him to skip Annadale and the office for the day, he’ll come help us with our larger group events. Bill’s relaxed style will have you on the road and smiling in no time.
Tim has worked with Getaway for the better part of 6+ years. Starting in a local bike shop back in 1999, Tim has been wrenching bikes ever since. If he can pry himself away from the shop, you might find him racing mountain bikes on the local circuit. When he isn't riding bikes you may cross paths with him at the local sports bar (una cuba con anejo en su mano), sipping wine in the local tasting rooms, or enjoying an outing with his penguin! :-) Make sure and ask for him if you're looking for that "fast" road or mountain bike adventure!
Barry is a wonderful addition to the Getaway Adventures shop team. He is currently running our new Napa Valley location. Barry has always loved cycling and he used to compete in races. He also loves to go for mountain bike rides in Annadel State Park. Barry is a tireless worker and we are lucky to have him as part of our family!
