My mother in law and I rode the wine trolley during a family vacation to Monterey County. We had so much fun and learned so much about wine and the area. The trolley driver was fun and silly and very informative. I loved the music he played while we were driving. What was unique and unexpected was how the day... More

The Wine Trolley is not only a great time but it is well managed by Gary Munsinger. Gary made sure that behind a great wine tour is a professional/responsible business person. I would highly recommend the trip. The feedback I received was extremely positive and thoughtful.

One of the highlights of our road trip honeymoon of the Californian coast. Gary was an interesting guide who managed to keep the varied ages of those on the tour entertained.

Had a fantastic time on the wine trolley tour. It was a great deal- plenty of wine with very safe transportation. The carmel wine valley is impressive and delicious. My favorite winery was the cowgirl winery. I highly recommend this tour and would do it again.

The trolley tour is a great way to take a wine tour. You can sit back and enjoy the scenery without the hassle of someone in your group having to drive. We also appreciated the wine education at the first stop - very informative! After that you are pretty much free to make your own choice from the participating wineries.... More

We had a great relaxing time. The scenery was amazing. Our tour guide Gary was funny and his dog nugget was just adorable. We tasted delicious wine and the wineries that we visited were educational and also set in beautiful areas. We had music wine and cheese what a way to spend a day!

The trolley was very enjoyable - meet new friends and visited our choice of several different places! Lunch was great, and we purchased several bottles and had them shipped home to relive the experience. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to take this tour again the next time we visit Monterey!
