My two friends and I had an amazing tour with Hawaiian Rick. After collecting us from our hotel in the SUV, he tailored the tour to our preferences. We started by visiting a vineyard and tasting grapes and raisins from the vine. Our stop at Los Olivos was great and we tasted some olive oils and vinegars. Solvang was a... More

Rick Reeves "owner", was very helpful from the start. I booked Wine Canyon Tours for a bachelorette party in Santa Barbara. I asked a lot of questions and had to check things and call him back multiple times and he was very understanding and accommodating. The wine tour was absolutely perfect. Rick was open to making stops or not making... More

We were picked up by Ricky "The cool Hawaiian guy" in a private SUV and were headed out on our tour. We made a quick stop to pick up lunch in Los Olivios, with time to walk around the little town, and then we were off to Pence Winery. Pence is a great boutique winery and was the highlight of...

We started off our birthday celebration with our tour guide Dave in a very comfortable van for eight. We had an awesome, awesome time. Dave was the best! He is very knowledgable about a lot of things from wine and grapes to sunscreen. He took very good care of us, and our picnic lunch was awesome. Dave even threw in... More

We set up this trip after reading some of the other awesome reviews online and we weren't disappointed at all. Our guide Dave was knowledgeable, funny and totally flexible when it came to schedule. On our third winery, we hit it off with the server and had something like 12-14 tastings over a 3-4 hr period. Dave never pushed us... More

We scheduled a 4 person wine tour and told Dave we were particularly interested in pinots and chards. He came through in spades taking us to exceptional boutique wineries. The superstar of the day was an appointment only tour of the vineyards and tasting room of the Pence Winery. Grape growing information coupled with exceptional tastings made this stop the... More

We had a lovely experience with Canyon Tours. Our driver was very friendly and made the day quite enjoyable! We took us to some fun wineries not originally on our schedule and we really enjoyed them! Overall, a great day out in Santa Ynez!

We booked a group tour but wound up being the only people on the tour. We were impressed that Dave honored the group pricing, but the tour itself was even more impressive. Dave brings an insider's knowledge to the tour and does so in an unassuming way. It was quite clear that the winemakers have a lot of respect for... More

I was more than impressed by wine canyon tours. Dave picked up a group of 8 girls for a bachelorette wine tour. He was so friendly and very knowledgable. He made sure the entire day went smoothly and was organized. We went to four wineries and even had a mini tasting while waiting on lunch to be ready. He was... More
