My husband and I did a private, dog-friendly wine tour with our two small dogs in the Edna wine valley while staying in Pismo Beach. Start to end it was fantastic. I was a little hesitant because of the price, but figured it would be a wonderful lifetime memory. I was pretty amazed that we could bring our dogs with... More

From the front office staff who couldn't have been nicer or more friendly, to our driver and guide, Steve, who was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable & a very nice guy ! The "Roll Out the Barrel" wine festival was going on so we knew the wineries would be crowded but Steve knew how to navigate to the right places to see... 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. We visited four wineries, all were touristy (but you can't help that) but it was the experience of the driver that helped. He gave us... More

We love wine tasting. We go on tours as often as we can, usually in the Napa Valley as it's in our "back yard". This past weekend, we had to drive down to LA and decided to stay at Pismo Beach. We found Breakaway Tours online and decided to try out what the Edna Valley had to offer! Jason picked... More

My mom and I had a wonderful day with our guide, Jason. We were enjoying a long weekend and this was a great way to enjoy a day. We don't know a lot about wine other than that we enjoy it. It seems this company can tailor the tour to accommodate both wine novices or oenophiles. They have a great... More

Enjoying going to wineries (tours) on our own (Los Olivos and Temecula) my wife and I decided to have a tour company take us around. Breakaway was suggested and staying at the Seacrest Resort in Pismo Beach (4.5 stars) we were able to get a discount. Arrangements were easily and quickly made through Cory at Breakaway.

What a great wine tour trip of the Edna Valley area! Ray our tour driver was very knowledgeable and gave us tips on everything from how to properly taste the wines to the history of the various areas. Coming from Pismo Beach the trip took 4-5 hours, including the gourmet lunch, which was the perfect amount of time. Thanks again... More

My girlfriends & I took the San Luis Obispo Wine Tour as part of our girls getaway. We had a wonderful time. Ray was our driver. He was polite , courteous and very knowledgeable. He pointed out sites and provided information on various wineries throughout our day of wine tasting in Edna Valley. I would highly recommend this great tour.
