Tracy was fantastic at her job, a real credit to the company , politeness enthusiast and a true professional, thanks so much for making it a fantastic time
This was a mother/daughter celebration and I was not really sure what to expect. We had Tracy pick us up at our hotel and give us a wine lesson. She was amazing and made my daughter feel really special she listened to what we liked and completely modified the tour to us. Lunch was really lovely at one of the wineries. The entire experience was really special. I am not sure it would have as special had we not shared it with Tracy's expertise and kindness. I would highly recommend this company and ask for Tracy.
This was my 2nd wine tasting tour and my hubby's 1st experience. Don was our guide for the day. He was very punctual, professional, and knowledgeable. He gave us great tips for little hidden places to get the best street ahi poke tacos (east beach tacos), and shellfish while we were in town. All his tips were awesome. We loved those places! He was a great guy, we had the best time at the wineries, and Don set up the most delicious picnic style lunch for our group while we enjoyed our wine. It was delicious! We both had a blast and my Husband keeps saying how much he wants to do this again asap. Thank you so much for such an amazing experience. We will be back again soon. Love, The Bergessons.
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!
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
