We had a fantastic time touring with Grapeline. Our tour guide Tommy was informative, friendly and professional. He knew the area well and had many interesting stories to tell. The vineyards we visited were great and we had fab wines. It was a nice combination. We took the Picnic Tour and found both the sandwich and salad to be tasty... More

We had some friends in town at the last minute. Called Grapeline and they got us on to a tour for the next morning. Our driver Fritz was a gentleman and made us laugh and feel comfortable. The wineries were outstanding, lunch was delicious and personable, the bus was clean and comfortable and the other folks on our bus were... More

We had a great time on this trip out. The crowd were friendly and Tommy the driver was brilliant. My fiancé and I are particular fans of Sideways and, after he dropped off our drinking companions, he drove us to some of the film's lesser known locations. The wineries were great, the hosts welcoming and the lunch was very tasty!... More

I gave my boyfriend this as a birthday gift. We had so much fun and Tommy our host was great. Very informative and two other couples on the tour were delightful. We visited 4 wineries and all were very nice and accommodating. Bought a number of bottles to bring back home. The pick up and drop off at our hotel... More

First off, I want to apologize! I am terrible with names and do not remember the name of our driver. He was very polite and so very helpful with everything! He was definitely knowledgeable and gave us a bunch of useful information to absorb during our ride! I took my mother-in-law for her birthday on our first wine tour. We... More

My boyfriend and I loved our day on the Grapeline wine tour! Our guide, Christopher, was excellent and had a great deal of knowledge about the area and wineries we traveled to. This was the most relaxing day of our trip by far! We didn't have to worry about anything as everything was so well organized. Lunch was absolutely delicious... More

Fun & relaxing trip through the vineyards! I didn't know much about wine but I really learned a lot, the driver, Tom, was really informative about the wine and the area. Highlight actually was the olive oil tasting, especially the garlic rosemary! (I love olive oil and never get tired of exploring new stuff!). We'll be back for more later... More

We did a private tour for 12 people, and had alot of fun. We got to pick four wineries, and our tour guide Dave was a hoot. Since we stayed in Buellton the drive to each winery was 15 minutes or less. The bus, all tasting fees, lunches and bottled water were included in the price. The lunches were great,... More

One of my friends is moving out of the area, so as one of her last experiences, I planned a tour on the Grapeline so that she could really get the most out of her experience and so we could both enjoy some local wineries without driving ourselves. Our driver, Fritz, was very personable and funny. He offered to take... More

What a good time. Pickup and dropoff at your hotel was very convenient. No worries about driving or getting lost. The tour van was nice with very comfortable seating. Tommy, our guide, was beyond pleasant getting to know each guest by name, serving us our preordered picnic lunches on tablecloths at a vineyard while offering to take photos at any... More
