We had a family wine tasting tour with Breakaway and Ray was awesome. He reserved our table for lunch and gave us fun facts along the way. Our bus was clean and spacious.

Scheduled the San Luis tour but due to vehicle issue my wife and I were included in the Paso Robles tour, much better choice. Ray Shalhoub was our guide and worth the time if you can arrange to have him. Picked up at hotel in San Luis and driven into the Paso Robles/ Templeton valley to four very nice vineyards.... More

We went thru Breakaway Tours because we heard great things from friends about this company. Our driver, Keith, was at our door 10 minutes prior to our departure time. He was very friendly and totally fit in with our group. We picked 4 wineries that were recommended by a couple of my husband's clients. We were given a choice of... More

I decided to take a spur of the moment trip to SLO and wine country and this tour was recommended to me from an agent with another tour company and it was a fantastic tour.
