“Fun and affordable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Breakaway Tours was great for our group tasting tour. They worked with us to make it as affordable for guest as possible. We had 23 people on our tour and we had plenty of room in the bus. Ray, our driver, was great. He was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely use them again. Have fun...

We hope to have the pleasure of you and yours again on board, for another special occasion or no occasion at all as every day in wine country is an occasion!

“Breakaway Tours is the Best Paso Wine Van Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We had a great time this weekend with our 7 couples touring Friday and Saturday in Breakaway's 14 passenger van. Our drivers were friendly, knowledgeable, professional and courteous. It was a great way to avoid tasting and driving. We would have been in 3 or more cars and would have been stressed, but we relaxed and let Breakaway Tours handle all of the details.

We look forward to our next Central Coast wine tour with Breakaway!

“Worth every penny!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Myself and a friend opted for the more expensive Paso Robles trip, which was a slight bit more in the van to the first winery, but well worth it. Hawk was a great guide - got us from place-to-place, managed to not bother us but still engage us, the lunch was great and the wine was better! We even managed a (unscheduled?) side trip to a small port winery we passed because we had some extra time. Truly great time, will definitely bring friends there again (though as this is a winery tour, I can't recommend kids/families -- booze flows freely and we got a little bawdy by winery 2 or 3).

“Exceeded our expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Thank you so much for squeezing us in with very little notice! Melinda was such a great tour guide, always focused on making us comfortable and took us to the best wineries in Paso Robles. We loved every winery so much that we had to stock up our wine cellar! : ) The picnic lunch was amazing! I was bummed that we had to leave the next day because I wanted to do it again!

Hello Andrea and thank you for choosing Breakaway Tours! You had one of the best in the business w/ Melinda to be sure. It was our sincere pleasure having you on board and we were so glad that we could accommodate on short notice! I know that you wanted to stay and do it again and we think that you should come back soon... with over 200+ wineries and you enjoyed 4 of them, you certainly have your work cut out for you and we are more than happy to assist!

Thanks again and we look forward to the next time, until then ~ Cheers!

I booked a tour with Breakaway for myself and 7 out of town family members and friends. The company was completely amendable to my ideas and allowed me to customize the tour. They provided our group with an amazing driver named Ray who was wonderful and followed my itinerary to the letter. He also made great suggestions about the perfect place to have the picnic lunch that I had packed. He had extensive knowledge of the surrounding wine industry and was very entertaining and fun as well as educational. He was also quite the gentleman and helped me spread out the picnic lunch and then reload the van and even provided a tablecloth for our picnic table. I would highly recommend this tour company. They proved to be competent and professional in every aspect. My family and friends had a fantastic time and are already planning to book another tour next year in the San Luis Obispo wine region of Edna Valley.
