September 2020 was our first time visit to the Santa Barbara. Our trip from Roseville CA was pre-planned even before the fires in Northern California. What was blessing to have a break from the smoke in the Central Valley. While staying in Solvang we scheduled a wine tour. Tom was very personable and easy to communicate regarding the tour. We were picked up on time. We were the only ones on the tour so it felt like a private tour. We visited a small private tasting of small batch wineries. We really enjoyed the private barrel tasting on the Flores Family winery. I would definitely recommend Artisan Wine Tours for a more intimate wine tour experience instead of the larger high production wineries.

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic day the Artisan Excursions wine tour. All three wineries were fantastic and offered unique experiences, and all the wine was very good. (We went to several tasting rooms in Santa Barbara the following day and didn't like the wines nearly as well as the what we had on the tour!) Everyone we met at the wineries provided wonderful customer service, and we had an all-around great experience.

As a side note, Tom was very accommodating when our flight was delayed and we arrived to the tour a little late. We appreciated that so much! I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Santa Barbara area.

Tom,
Thank you for the wine tour experience! The bus was very clean and the three wineries that you took us too were exceptional! We enjoyed the lunch at our second stop under the trees and the beautiful view. We drove back to Sacramento talking about our experience, thank you for making it so special and can’t wait to do it again!

Tom did a great job getting us to and from and provided a very nice, light lunch. The first stop was especially good as it educated us on wines, educated us on a good way to taste wines and gave us an opportunity to purchase some wines we might not otherwise find..

This is exactly what we had in mind for our trip, we didn’t have to plan anything. Just book and go and Tom takes care of setting everything up for a smooth and seamless trip with great wineries! We had a very small group, only 4 of us and we had an absolute blast. The tour started with a private tasting at the Santa Inez Valley Wine Club, then Andrew Murray and finished off at Dierberg Star Lane. Loved it! Highly recommend for wine lovers that just want to book, go and relax and let someone else make the reservations and winery selection.

Can't say enough about what a great time my husband and I had on our Artisan Wine Tour for our wedding anniversary, on 7/22/18! Tom was very helpful, informative and professional, and we really appreciated that he took care of every detail. The wineries he selected were spectacular, our lunch was perfectly planned and delicious, and our van was nice and cool on a very hot day! We also met a very nice couple on our excursion, which made it that much more fun. Thank you again for making our special day so nice - we will be back again very soon.

My wife and I had a very nice, relaxed, and private wine tasting tour with Tony! Tony drove us to 3 different wineries, each with their own varietals, size, and uniqueness. He also provided a tasty lunch of sandwich and salad, which we were able to select prior to the tour. The entire tour lasted a bit over 4 hours, which provided enough opportunities for good wine tasting. We even purchases several bottles of wine that we had not tasted before. I would definitely recommend Tony and Artisan Excursions for a wine tour of the Santa Rita Hills, Santa Ynez Valley, or Santa Maria Valley.

Very relaxed and fun day. Went to 3 wineries. Comfy vehicle. Fantastic wine. Delicious sandwiches with a nice tablecloth to go on the picnic table. Tom was friendly and knowledgeable. Would book again!

We used 805 Wine Tours for my friend's 40th birthday party weekend. It was AWESOME! Tom picked us up (he was early) in a new Nissan Quest that was very comfortable and easy to get in and out of. Tom took care of our every need. He was so knowledgeable about the area, the wineries, food. He hooked us up with a great lunch and even set a table for us to eat lunch at one of the wineries. Tom was very nice, caring and FUN! We felt like total VIPs.

805 is a great inexpensive private tour option for those who don't want to deal with a crowded bus. Tom lead us on a terrific excursion through Santa Ynez wineries. (By our fourth stop, I was calling him Tim.)
