Went with the $99 package, which included 3 tastings and lunch, but you can always get more tasting coupons, or buy tastings or glasses directly from the tasting rooms. Cousin and Clay know the village and wineries... More

Leeland our tour guide was fun, engaging with his party and made sure everyone had a great time. If you are local, out of the area or just love wine this is a... More

Thank you Cousin, Clay and Pete for a fantastic tour. Special thanks to Clay for the Point Lobos suggestion and also Pete for local flavor. Also lunch provided by the tour that we enjoyed at Cima Collina winery was perfect. Our favorite winery was also Cima Collina.

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.
