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

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 Wife and I are not wine connoisseurs by any means so we were a little apprehensive about our lack of expertise for the wine tasting tour. Our tour guide Jason, was fantastic. He was knowledgeable about the area, the vineyards and the wines! We traveled to some great locations with a nice lunch breaking up the day. We had... 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.

Had a very enjoyable day wine tasting!! Our guide and driver Jason, was charming, knowledgeable and caring. And the four other people in my group was fun, friendly and a great time was had by all. Also, we loved the picnic lunch under the trees at a winery.:-)

Whilst staying in San Luis Obispo as part of our honeymoon trip we really wanted to visit some of the vinyards in the area and this tour was recommended to us by the visitors centre in town.

Our guide and driver (Jason) was stellar....knowledgable, entertaining, upbeat, and informative. A fine lunch was provided however we were unpleasantly surprised to find that two of the wineries charged a tasting fee on top of the $100+ per person fee already charged by Breakaway Tours. We thought that damaged the experience.
