I did ALOT of research & made ALOT calls before picking a company to choose for Winery Hopping. My main & number one reason for picking Stagecoach was because it was one price for the whole deal (lunch, tax and tip for the driver included), where as most other companies give one price for example $160 + tax + tip & some don't even include lunch. There seems to be alot of mis-communication from this company & they really like to email/text instead of picking up the phone to call you. It kinda felt like talking with a robot because you never actually spoke to a person leading up to or after booking. I have done tours like this many, many times in Santa Barbara & this is NOT normal practice. Most companies will call you to confirm your pick up time & pick up location because many times the case is you could have switched hotels or things may have changed. Also, how many vacationers who are not on business actually check their emails or even have access? Luckily, I did or there may have been a bad outcome. I didn't receive a call from Stagecoach leading up to my tour date, so the morning of I realized I better call. On top of this with COVID you never know if a company could cancel because of certain circumstances that may have come up. I called & to no surprise no answer so left a voicemail, but within minutes received at text message (again speaking to a robot). The message basically argued with the fact that I should have received an email (which i did) confirming my booking. Ok, in that email it clearly stated the following communication: A reservation specialist will contact you to confirm your reservation and pick up time. I received no response back ;/ If I could provide a name of the person that was sending the emails or texting I would, however they didn't provide one in any of those forms of communication. My guess in speaking with our tour guide/drive it was the owner who I believe is a man and/or a lady named Connie. In terms of the actual tour & driver, it was fun, the driver was super nice & personable. He always would offer to take your picture as much as you wanted at the wineries. This company takes you to three wineries. We went to the following: Buttonwood, Pence and Bella Caval Farms. Buttonwood, the people working there were very snooty, rude & you don't get a tour there, you just sit in like park setting. The other two stops were AMAZING! Overall, would I use this company again probably not as there are so many other options out there!

Response from StagecoachCo, Manager at Stagecoach Co. Wine Tours
Responded Sep 10, 2020
In our nearly 20 years of business, this is the very first time a guest has found issue with our communication. Our clients have been very happy with the fact that we have an associate in the office six days per week! We’ve found that our guests actually appreciate the email confirmations that we send, which clearly confirm the reservation date, number of guests, pickup location, and pickup time. These can be easily referred to/documented/printed/saved, etc. With phone calls, many people do not answer if it’s from a number they don’t recognize, and voicemails can easily be deleted, or voicemail boxes can be full. Should our guests decide to change hotels or have any deviation from their original reservation, they always let us know in advance. If they have questions, they feel free to call us (and vice-versa). Do hotels, airlines, or restaurants call each of their guests the night before to confirm? This would be excessive. We trust that our guests are adults, and would be in contact if anything had changed. With 19 years in business, Stagecoach Co. Wine Tours values clear and efficient communication. Our guests choose our Wine Tours to escape all of the noise in their everyday lives - once a reservation is confirmed, our guests can sit back, relax, and know that we aren’t going to bother them with unnecessary phone calls. We have never had a guest who did not appreciate this!

It’s been a year since our trip so I don’t remember all the details. But I remember it was a lovely, lovely day. Group of about 8-10. They drove us through beautiful rolling hills and we stopped at the wineries. First one was more sophisticated. Second one was much more country-feel. Third one was Bella Farms whee they have horses. The wines at all were great. Tour guide was very good. All in all I recommend this.

I hired Stagecoach Wine Tours to take 10 of us around to wineries for my Grandmother’s 80th Birthday. We had an age range from 21-80 and a great time was had by all! The office set up a wonderful day for us with 4 wineries that private/member only vineyards. We loved each place SO much and our guide Kelly was wonderful! She was very knowledgeable of the area and took great care of us throughout the day. Each place we went to was extremely special with amazing wines, private set ups and great guides. I will definitely hire Stagecoach again if we’re lucky enough to come back to Santa Ynez Valley. (They also served us a yummy lunch that we preordered that was perfect!)
