Had a lot of fun with our excellent guide Eric! Much preferred the open sided jeep to the buses we saw parked at one location. Yes it got a little chilly on the way up, but the blankets took care of that. When we got onto the back roads, it was pleasantly warm but not too hot. He took us... More

Thank you for your review & feedback The open-air Jeeps can get a bit windy, but... we agree... the wide-open views and fresh air allowed by the Jeeps' design are worth the breeze! So glad you enjoyed your guide... we really do have a great crew! Hope you join us again soon. More

We had such an amazing experience on this wine tour. Our driver, Michelle, was so friendly and knowledgeable. She took us to four incredible and beautiful wineries and set up a delicious picnic lunch for us at the third winery. The ride to and from Santa Ynez wine country in the open air jeep was breathtakingly beautiful. This was such... More

Had an incredible time with our driver! He knew all the right spots, and was friends with everyone at each location, so we really felt like locals! He even stayed long past our ending time to let us soak in the sun with a bottle of wine. Cannot recommend this group enough!

I recently took a Cloud Climbers back country wine tour with another 5 people. It was a lot of fun! We had an open air jeep to ourselves and our tour guide Erik was fabulous! He shared insider stories about areas we were passing through and took us to 4 really impressive wineries - both small and large. Our group... More

My girlfriend and I traveled to Santa Barbara over Memorial Day weekend and were referred to Cloud Climbers by a friend who had a great time a few years prior. The day lived up to and exceeded all expectations that we had. We were picked up at our hotel by our guide, Guy, who, as a native of the area,... More

We had a great experience with Cloud Climbers! We were the only couple on our tour, Andrew was our driver and he was wonderful- so fun and knowledgeable about the area.

Family of 6, including teens, had a terrific time on this three-hour ride through the Santa Barbara mountains. Incredibly knowledgable guide (Joseph) knew all there was to know about local flora, geography and geology, and explained it in an informative and entertaining manner. Stopped off at Chumash indian caves, took an easy hike to a beautiful promontory overlooking the Santa... More

They arrived outside our hotel in Solvang. We were each provided our own personal wine glass for tasting & to keep. We were the only couple so we visited 5 wineries. The great thing about the tour is it brought us to places we wouldn't have otherwise known about. Lunch was great. Really enjoyed our drivers personality. http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g33045-d1547180-r57044813-Cloud_Climbers-Santa_Barbara_California.html#
