This was our second tour, first being Paso Robles. The Santa Barbara tour exceeded our expectations. Our driver was fun and knowledgeable, we learned a lot during the day. The wineries were top notch. We enjoyed the picnic area for lunch and made four new friends from our fellow tourists. I would recommend these tours to anyone.

From start to finish the Grapeline tour was fantastic. The pace was comfortable and easy and we visited a great variety of wineries, from the massive to tiny. My husband and I aren't super-social people but we instantly bonded with the other couple who was on the tour with us...it was really fun to be with like-minded people! We tried... More

Our birthday party group of 11 women had a fantastic time with Tommy as our guide. We chose the Vineyard Picnic Tour which provides a preordered sandwich/salad of your choice eaten at one of the wineries. We were able to choose 3 of the 4 wineries and were joined by only one other "Kiwi" couple in our newish minibus that... More

Great tour! The driver was so nice to carry all our purchases and load the van himself. I even left a bottle on wine in the van but they offered to ship it all they way back to where i live in CT. Shipping was a little slow so they sent 2! Just great customer service, lunch was delicious and... More

I have visited a lot of wineries in Napa and Sonoma, but this was by far the best wine tour I have ever taken. I was with a small group of seven people, some of whom had returned for another tour with our fabulous driver and guide, Tom Darwin. He is not only an excellent driver but knowledgable about the...

We were picked up from our hotel promptly by our driver, Tom. There were only 2 other couples on the tour which turned out to be nice as we were able to chat and get to know eachother throughout the day. We visited 4 vineyards in total and also popped into an Olive Farm and an Alpaca Farm en route.... More

The Grapeline in Santa Barbara accommodated our last minute request for a Santa Ynez wine tour the following day. We were greeted that following morning by Tom the tour guide. Tom was extremely knowledgeable about the wineries and the Santa Ynez valley. Tom truly enhanced the entire wine tasting tour by going above and beyond the call of duty. The... More

We were picked up right in front of our hotel. We went on a Monday, which I recommend highly, as the places we went to were very quiet. We were a group of 4 couples and we had an amazing time. Tom our guide was great--knowledgeable and fun. The 4 wineries we visited were all different and beautiful. The wines... More

We just returned from visiting the area for 4th of July weekend, and could not have had a better time. Tom our tour guide and driver was very knowledgeable, and took us to some great wineries, and an olive farm. As first timers to the area, this was a great introduction! We look forward to doing this again next year!
