I worked with Jill on setting up our wine tour. It was my milestone birthday and I wanted to make sure we hit places that everyone in our group of 10 would enjoy. The day was perfect and our driver was extremely knowledge and fun. The 3 wineries they picked were perfect and the location for lunch was super cute. We had a great time and I would definitely recommend Breakaway Tours again.

BreakAway Tours gave 20 members of our Buckeye, AZ wine club quite the special tour of several wineries in the Santa Ynez Valley out of Solvang, CA. Our wine guides (Jill + Erik) took us to 6 wineries over 2 days with a delicious lunch mixed in each day and wonderful wines. We couldn't have asked for a more organized and fun 2-days. Highly recommend BreakAway Tours for any wine country tour.

We had a good experience on our wine trip to 3 wineries with a gourmet picnic lunch included. We could have visited more wineries but decided we'd like to head back home on the 1 to get a view of the ocean. Our driver, Ray, was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We originally had a group of 6 and a van reserved, as it turned out 2 had to bow out, please know the price of the tour fluctuates with each 2 guests. They were clear to us about this in the beginning and since we lost 2 the price went up for the remaining 4 guests because we still had the van and full resources were reserved for 6. I would suggest having a contingency plan with your group members should 2+ people have to cancel. Enjoy!

Hello Julia, We're so glad you enjoyed your day in wine country and we love Ray as much as our guests do, a wealth of knowledge and fun to spend the day with. It is true that the price on the private charters fluctuate with the number of guests on board as your largest fixed cost is your transportation and the more people that share it, the less per person. It can be challenging when your numbers adjust on you. Next time, you might consider joining one of our Scheduled Wine Tours available in San Luis Obispo and/or Paso Robles Wine Regions (currently not available in Santa Barbara), this tour is priced by the person and remains fixed whether you have 1 or 10 guests. We blend small(er) groups together w/ door-door service, you meet/make new friends, visit 4 wineries, it includes our gourmet picnic lunch as well as our signature Deliciously Fun Wine Education. These tours can be booked directly through our website at any time. We thank you for choosing Breakaway Tours and we hope to have you on board again soon... Until then ~ Cheers! Jill Tweedie & Team Breakaway

We used Breakaway Tours in Santa Barbara/Santa Ynez for my husband's 40th birthday weekend! It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Jill and Ali were SO helpful in planning the perfect afternoon for our group of 5 couples. They were flexible with our schedules which included picking our group up in 2 separate places....downtown Santa Barbara (for the girls) and the Sandpiper golf course (for the guys). Our driver and tour guide, Ray was the perfect fit for our group! He was informative and fun and made sure everything was ready for us at each winery we arrived at. Jill did an amazing job of selecting our wineries and we had a fabulous time. I would recommend this company to anyone doing wine tasting in Santa Ynez! Now we just need to plan our next trip back!

Hi Erika, So glad that a good time was had by all! What a great way to celebrate your hubby's 40th, I'm sure it's one he will remember for years, who remembers what birthday or Christmas gift that got last year? Experiences are something to treasure and relive on a regular basis... Thank you again for choosing Breakaway Tours. we hope to have the pleasure of you and yours on board again soon. Please keep in mind that we serve the San Luis Obispo & Paso Robles Wine Regions as well. Until then ~ Cheers! Jill & Team Breakaway

We had a corporate event and engaged Breakaway Tours to tour the Santa Ynez wine area. All of the participants on the tour had a really good time. Jill was fantastic during the planning stage, listening to my list of wants, and executing flawlessly. We had a mid-sized group which is sometimes difficult to find the right transportation for and still be cost-effective. Jill found the right vehicle to fit our group of 26 which was a black, sleek, executive-style coach, but it didn’t look like a bus. Our tour guide, Valorie, was perfect for our group. She was knowledgeable about the Santa Ynez region and not only filled us in on the wines, but also information about the area. She was very subtle about rounding up people at the winery when it was time to move on to the next one. I would recommend Breakaway Tours to anyone planning a corporate event and I would definitely use them again in future.
