Our tour guide Hawaiian Rick is awesome! My husband and I were picked up at our hotel in Santa Barbara and given a private tour of four vineyards in the Santa Ynes wine country. Rick is very knowledgeable of not only wines, but the Santa Barbara countryside. He set up a nice picnic lunch for us overlooking the vineyards. Rick... More

Just got back from a great weekend in Santa Barbara and the half day wine tour with Rick was definitely a highlight. This tour company made it all very easy and approachable for non-wine enthusiasts! They picked us up from our Airbnb and we had a very comfortable ride out to the vineyards. Rick let us set the pace and... More

We book Wine Canyon Tours for a girls trip and had the best time! Rick arrived right on time and spent a few minutes asking us about our wine preferences and what we were looking to do for the tour. We all really felt like that helped us to start out on a good foot! From the beginning, he was... More

Wine Canyon Tours did such a fabulous job. We had a private wine tour to great vineyards, including stopping at one not open to the public. It was an unforgettable experience with lots of great pictures! Also, we had one member of our group who had a medical emergency prior to the trip, and they were incredibly accommodating and allowed... More

We really enjoyed our tour. Not only did we get to go to the wine tastings, but we also went to an Olive Ranch, to Los Olivos and to Solvang. Rick was really nice and we learned a lot from him.

We had an excellent day tasting wine with Rick as our driver and guide. He took us to 4 different wineries and asked us questions ahead of time about what we like to drink and customized the tour accordingly. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Also took us to some off-the-road stops including an on olive oil tasting and old danish town.... More

My daughters and I had a fantastic day thanks to "Hawaiian Rick" and his hospitality. This was our first wine tour and although I did not book a private tour, we were the only ones on the van! (Wine Canyon has no minimim.) We visited four winerys and had a lovely picnic lunch. Rick did not hesitate to take pictures... More

I have used Wine Canyon Tours three times, once with my mom and twice when planning bachelorette parties, including my own. The vans are always really comfortable and the guides are great. I have had "Hawaiian Rick" twice and Dave once as a guide, they know a lot about the area and are always ensuring that you are having a... More
