The Silver Service was founded in 2009 by Steve Thomasson, who decided it was time for a change after running his excavating business for 30 years. A California native like his parents, Steve spent a few years growing up in Texas but has called Sonoma County his home since 1965. All the experience working around and on Sonoma County’s back roads, ranches and wineries, combined with his love for fine cars, driving the open road, meeting new people and his pride in Sonoma County, come together with Silver Service Tours.
With a desire to offer something unique and high-end but casual, Steve began researching the tour and transportation business. The goal was to establish a luxury transportation service with a “no jacket required” friendliness. The drivers, the service they provide, and the vehicles all compliment the Sonoma County lifestyle. Since 2009, Steve has been behind the wheel both literally and figuratively, driving visitors and locals alike to the best wineries, restaurants, events and scenic attractions.
Steve, his wife, their three grown children and six grandchildren, all live in West Sonoma County, which keeps Steve plenty busy when he isn’t showing off Sonoma County’s best.
