We had a great day. Our driver was Don. He was knowledgeable, polite, and a great tour guide. We were with 2 other couples, 1 from Seattle, and 1 from Montreal, Canada. We exchanged stories of our travels and adventures along with the driver and all got along famously. I was in need of a little extra help and all were patient and considerate. I didn't feel out of place.
Had the best time with Tracy, and the group that we were with, the wine was excellent and the hospitality was even better. I expected a cheap lunch but in fact the food was amazing and accommodating for vegetarians ! We would do this again!
We had a blast! Our guide was phenomenal. Beautiful sites and so knowledgeable. A+. Very attentive to individual tastes
Everything about the tour is excellent. The tour called us to let us know when she would pick us up. She was very informative and friendly. You go to 4 different wineries. Plenty of different wines to taste. If you buy a bottle the tour guide will take care of it for you until the end of the trip.
This is a really fun tour and Tracy was a great guide. Bought some good wine and saw the countryside. Would take the tour again.
We had the best time and met some great people!! The lunch was fabulous, the perfect setting. We plan to book again next time we are in Santa Barbara.
Toured in August 2017. Such an amazing experience! We got to experience 4 different size wineries. The wines were all delicious. But the lunch was amazing!! We dined on a wisteria covered patio, overlooking a small vineyard. Definitely recommended to anyone interested in touring Santa Ynez.
The tour was a lot of fun. Don our guide was very friendly and told us a lot of the history to the valley and the winery's we were visiting. He did a good job setting up our picnic lunch and the food was fab in a lovely setting. I feel that this tour was excellent value for money.
This was a really great tour.
Tracey, our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and had a flexible approach to which wineries we visited, which made it feel more personal.
Nice lunch on the tour was an added bonus.
Would highly recommend this tour
This trip was beyond worth the money. We had Susan as our driver who was above accommodating. Went to four wineries, had a great lunch. This is a must do if you like wine. Thanks so much for such a great experience and on top of that we meet friends for life. Good times!!!!!!!
Tracy was an awesome guide! We had an great time touring the wineries and tasting the various wines. At the second vineyard, our picnic lunch was very good and welcome. On the way back, we stopped by the Cold Spring Tavern! We highly recommend this tour. We are ready to do it again! Thanks for a wonderful day!
Great tour with Kevin. He was very knowledgeable about the history/region and wines.
Tracy was a wonderful guide. She is studying to become a Sommelier and was very informative. The four wineries and the scenery was great.
My husband and I live in LA, so we are able to visit beautiful Santa Barbara often and always have a wonderful time. We love wine, so we decided to try a wine tour...a great way to visit a number of vineyards, sit back and enjoy the scenery, and not worry about drinking too much wine...lol! Found this tour on TripAdvisor and it more than lived up to the great reviews. Our driver, Don, soon became our friend...picked us up right on time and gave us lots of info about the vineyards and the area. He was awesome! We visited four wineries...all quite different in character and all with superb wines. Lunch was ordered from a menu with something for everyone and served outside at our second stop. Delicious! There were 8 in our group, all from different parts of the country, and we all bonded right away. Really fun meeting new people over wine! The day 10am-5pm could not have been more perfect! Definitely worth the price and don't forget to tip your driver...it is a long day for them. Highly recommended!
Tracy was an amazing guide on this terrific tour. This was my daughter's first wine tour and Tracy introduced her to tasting the wine and how to savor it. We visited four very different wineries and enjoyed a fabulous picnic lunch. Tracy was very knowledgeable and explained the Santa Ynez area well. Highly recommend this tour!
A fantastic way to spend an afternoon! Beautiful countryside and wineries makes for a pleasant day. Each host winery was very treated the guests very nice. We went in late April when the crowds were not busy. I understand that later in the season in can get busy in the tasting rooms. Don our tour guide made an excellent host and provided a fun atmosphere for all to enjoy the day. Would recommend the tour!
A wonderful day of enjoying wine, the Santa Barbara countryside, and meeting new friends. We enjoyed each of the wineries and learning about each wine making process. Unique enough that each location was fresh and interesting. Don was a great driver and host making the trip enjoyable. Would recommend for adults - would not bring a child or anyone who does not care to try wine.
Trip was wonderful Tracy our driver was amazing. On a Monday it was just my husband and I on the bus. We celebrated our 7th anniversary it was great. Aaron at Roblar Winery was super knowledgeable on Roblar wines and we enjoyed his company very much. I have already sent the info to a coworker and my husband and I plan on doing this again with in the year with friends.
