“So much fun.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

This was a wonderful experience. Gary is extremely knowledgeable about the area and wines and makes for a charismatic and top rate tour guide.

When my husband and I booked the trip there was only standing room available on the back of the trolley. I was a little hesitate at first, but it turned out to be a great spot on the trolley. People were wanting to swamp us seats since the day was warm and the breeze at the back was perfect.

“Wonderful wine, scenery, food and driver!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

From the minute of getting on the Trolley, my friend and I were treated like family, family you like that is! We had super weather, the Carmel Valley was lovely and so was the wine. Our lunch, a high end sandwich, salad, dessert were first class and I was a caterer for 10 years.

“What a fun trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

What a fun trip this was, even when the weather was a bit gloomy at the start the music and people on board were very upbeat. The wineries and people serving us were also upbeat and informative and obviously welcomed the trolly customers with open arms.
