Both Penny and Doug McKesson, owners of Goodtime Touring Company, have developed a passion for Sonoma, its rich history, the great wines and local bounty that this unique area has to offer.
Established in 2001, Goodtime Touring Company grew from the retail bike shop owned and operated by Doug & Penny from 1975-2000. They began renting bikes to local hotels in the area, then offering guided tours......the rest is history!
Doug is a former Mayor of Sonoma, and due to his familiarity and popularity within the community has developed wide-ranging relationships with winemakers, cheese makers, and a broad cross-section of businesses and individuals.
Both Doug and Penny have strong ties to the community, and have each been tireless volunteers in many areas over the last 35 years in the town they call home. They are the proud parents of two adult children and take great delight in their five grandchildren!
Goodtime Touring Company tours are designed to be as individual as you are, and to make you feel at home in this special place where you are fee to create memories and adventures of your own.
In 2014, Doug & Penny started working with long time locals Hunt & Yuni Bailie (owner/operators of Sonoma Segway). After a glass or two of wine and an intense game of rock/paper/scissors, the McKesson’s and the Bailie’s decide to combine forces. Hunt and Yuni, taking what they know and love about Sonoma, and combining it with the top quality bike & van tours provided by the McKessons, have started the Sonoma Adventures tour company.
Meet the Bailies...
Yuni and I are excited to spend the day riding Segways with you. We are both long time locals - I've been here since birth, and Yuni since the early 90s. Now with 3 kids, we have truly dropped roots and plan to call Sonoma home for as long as we can imagine.
Having spent many years in the hospitality industries, we decided to branch out and open up Sonoma Segway in 2005. With the beautiful weather, scenic roads, rich history and amazing wineries, Sonoma provides the ideal place for touring on a Segway.
Join us for a fun day on Segways
Cheers - Hunt & Yuni Bailie
