This is a one of a kind experience. You ride in an open jeep and enjoy the views while your guide tells you about the surrounding area and the wine. You go to 4 vineyards and the tasting fee is included. Gourmet lunch included. Great value! Very chill experience!

Had an amazing driver named Millard who picked us up at our hotel around 10 that morning and drove us around all day in the San Ynez mountains wine tasting. We let him know what we were looking for (tasting rooms, Solveign, etc) and he totally hooked it up. He knew exactly where to go for what we had in... More

Our tour day was amazing. Todd, our driver was TOP NOTCH, and so amazing. He was safe, and informative. He was very much involved in our day because he was so accommodating and fun. He catered our tour to what we wanted to do. The wineries he took us too were kitchy and so delish. Our lunch was so good.... More

Very fun! Millard gave us a lot of history along with finding wineries that were excellent for me and my partner. I only wish they did hotel pick-up from Carpenteria, and maybe a bit more of an off road experience. If you go in the spring or winter dress warm!

Our driver was late picking us up and early dropping us off. We went to Firestone, Brander, and two other wineries in Los Olivos. The wineries were decent, but we expected a bit more out of the tour. We've been on tours like this before in the Santa Ynez Valley; usually our tour guide throws in a fifth winery, especially... More

We sat in the back of the open jeep that takes you on the highway and it was freezing!!!!!!! Besides that the day was perfect. We enjoyed the wineries we visited, lunch... More

The best wine tour I have ever been on. Fantastic guide, wineries, and scenery. By far the highlight of the trip.

Saw four wineries, weather was amazing, tour guide was great. You can pick which wineries you want to go to and also had a blast making friends with the other people on the tour. All tastings are paid for (which is close to $80 if you do four wineries) so the deal is well worth it. Picked us up at... More

Our wine country jeep tour was last Monday (11/17) on a beautiful sunny day. Our guides, Millard and Hans, were very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. We toured four wineries and enjoyed a delicious lunch at our third stop. Our adventure could not have been better. Traveling through the wine country was one of the highlights of our trip to California.... More

Took the tour 3 years ago and last week. They were able to accommodate us last minute by following up with a phone call when they had a cancellation. Millard took excellent care of us, very knowledgeable. Our jeep had a minor issue but they were able to get a new jeep to us while were in sipping our wine.... More
