What a wonderful way to see the Santa Ynez area. As other reviewers noted, Tom was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and was genuinely interested in sharing his knowledge. Pick up was right on time at our hotel in Santa Barbara. We made a stop in Solvang to pick up some other guests, and since we were a few minutes... More

Tom was an awesome guide to four wineries in the Sana Ynez area. He was a wealth of knowledge and information, and best of all, he was unscripted. He made the tour pleasant. The wineries were small, and the setting for our lunch was quite intimate...very nice to eat in the middle of a vieyard on a deck. Be prepared... More

My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of taking the Grapeline Tour in Santa Barbara with Tom yesterday. Needless to say the entire day exceeded our expectations. Tom was an absolute dream, and we can't wait to return to SB for another tour soon! He truly personalized the experience for us, and we greatly appreciated all that he did! I... More

Went on the grapeline wine tour this past weekend and had a great time! we got to see 4 wineries, and at each winery (particularly curtis) were treated so well, because the wineries clearly respected the bus trip we were on. Kris was amazing!!

On a lark, I went on a wine tasting tour after a plan to go kayaking to the channel islands was cancelled last minute due to weather. The wine country is actually not in Santa Barbara, it's about half an hour away in the Santa Ynez Valley. The Grapeline picks you up right from the hotel lobby and travels through... More

I'm a regular Grapeline junkie now. I've been twice in Paso and twice in Santa Ynez, and it is always something different and always a delight. My most recent outing was with a new guy, who didn't seem too keen on the idea at first but became a convert by winery 3. This all day wine tour, and Patron Silver,... More

My wife and I did a tour in November. It was mid-week and as such it was just us and another couple. The driver/guide David was very friendly and knowledgeable about wine and the area. We stopped at four different wineries that David selected that morning (after inquiring as to our tastes in wine). These included Firestone, Curtis and Buttonwood... More

There were 7 passengers total that day, a nice small group. When we were all picked up. Tom mentioned all the birthdays and anniversaries, which was... More

We took the wine tour whilst in Solvang. There were only me and my husband and another couple booked on that day so the tour guide Tommy tailored the choice of vineyards around us and we got the chance to go to a couple of smaller ones that don’t take larger groups. We visited 4 vineyards – Gaineys, Branders, Firestone... More
