CARMEL VALLEY wine tour totally worth it!

If you're into checking out the local Carmel Valley wine, Wine Trolley Tours is definitely worth it. You receive "coupons" (amount received is based upon the package you buy) to use for tastings at most of the wineries located in the Carmel Valley Village. They provide you a boxed lunch of cheese, sliced meats, crackers, and bread. The tour is... More

I had a great time with a couple girlfriends. You start off with 3 tasting tokens for about $99, but you can always purchase more if you want to. The boxed lunch was way more than I could eat and they accommodated that I was a vegetarian. (don't get it twisted, I can eat a lot, so it means something... More

Me and some friends used the wine trolley for a bachelorette party. It was such a fun day! Everyone was very nice and the driver was extremely helpful. The wine venues were amazing and it was such a great day!! Good wine, food and people - what more can you ask for?

We had a delightful afternoon on the Wine Trolley tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining- he kept us informed and laughing while we stopped in the most beautiful countryside spots in Carmel Valley and tasted excellent wine. We are planning to take visitors on the Wine Trolley tour and go again ourselves because it was so enjoyable

My fiance and I decided to book this tour while in Monterey due to the reviews on Trip Advisor. Needless to say we were not dissapointed. The wine was great the people were great. It was our favorite activity while visiting California.

If it were possible to give this a negative number I would. I have nothing to say about the trip itself but be SURE when you book it that it is the time and date you need and that life doesn't happen around you, otherwise, you will be out the almost $400. I became ill and had to cut my... More

We were NEVER contacted regarding the possibility of this guest missing our tour. Never a phone call, email or any other form of communication. Before the tour departed at 11:00 AM we called the number listed with the ticket sale to verify their absences. We ended up having a heated conversation with someone about canceling and not being able to... More

The trolley and staff were great! They were very knowledgeable about the wines and the region. We had an issue with a group of people being almost 30 minutes late. While we waited and the rest of us on the trolley were upset, we were given an additional 30 minutes in Carmel to make up for it. I would highly... More
