Right from the start Rick was so responsive to my questions. I know from experience that this is key indicator of an outstanding tour operator, His knowledge of local wineries is ultra high. We booked two days with Rick and he tailored the days perfectly to our tastes. His contacts gets you into places you cannot go yourself. The lunches... More

"Hawaiian Rick" was an awesome tour guide. We were surprised that we ended up with a private guided tour. He was very informative and had a great sense of humor. We had a great time and will definitely us this service again. Lunch was delicious, plus all the yummy snacks. It's great to have a local lead the way. Rick... More

We reserved a private driver for the day and got way more than we paid for. Big Dave was our driver for the day and he was incredibly knowledgable about wine and the area. We let him lead the way and visited some amazing wineries and he provided an amazing gourmet picnic lunch. Can't wait to come back and use... More

"Hawaiian Rick" is the man! One of the greatest attributes of Canyon Wine Tours is their great customer service and laid back, friendly attitude. My wife and I had an incredible time touring four wineries customized to our tastes. Rick was super attentive to our needs, providing water and snacks, suggesting photo opportunities, checking out miniature horses, communicating with wineries... More

My experience my girlfriend was great. Rick was on time and we were paired with another couple. We told Rick that we didn't know much about wine and he took us to some great wineries in the area. Rick was also very informational but also gave us space to have a good time. He also took as many pictures of... More

I contacted Rick and scheduled a private "Super Uber" tour for four people. He and I communicated back and forth and I was able to select the specific wineries (with his input) to visit in the Santa Ynez valley. The entire experience was outstanding, including electronic payment and the timely communication from Rick. Would highly recommend Wine Canyon Tours to... More

We went on a Wine Canyon Wine Tour on July 4, 2015. Rick (from Hawaii) was our driver and guide. He was awesome. He knew the area and was obviously well-liked by the winery staff at each winery. He struck just the right balance between hovering and letting us wander on our own. We visited four wineries: Beckmann, Koehler, Andrew... More

We had a fantastic tour with Hawaiian Rick! We visited 4 wineries that were carefully selected by him. Each winery had it's own unique characteristics and it was fun to see the personalities of the tasting rooms and vineyards. Our drive up to the wine country was beautiful, Rick's SUV was comfortable, clean and full of snacks and beverages. Rick... More

Only great things to say about this tour! "Hawaiian Rick" was on time, willing to take pictures and tell us more information or stay aside and wait for us. He laid out a great picnic in the shade and took time finding a great spot for us. He even bought me cupcakes for my birthday, which was such a sweet... More

We had a great day with Rick on our private wine tour!! He was very accommodating and happy to personalize our tour based on our requests for specific vineyards to visit. He mixed in a few of our requests with some of his recommendations. One stop, and probably our favorite one, was to meet one if his winemaker friends who... More
