Booked this tour with Breana about a month ago for my wife's birthday. Breana was very responsive to my emails and calls, made it super easy to reserve. We did the Sunday evening tour which departed at 2pm. Curtis & John were our drivers. They were great at explaining everything to us and even gave us pointers for each of the 3 wineries we visited.

We also had a blast on our tour bus, as mentioned by others, the Playlist options were a big hit with our group. You can never beat having a driver take you around different wineries. A must try if you are ever in the area.

So Cal Wine Tours was great with communicating the process and coordinating all of the details for our tour. Great communication really seals the deal with me.

We had a super nice tour guide and driver as well, they did everything to make us comfortable, make sure we were enjoying ourselves and keep us cool in the relentless heat.

Unfortunately, I left a bottle of wine behind and although it couldn’t be located, Moses - the owner of So Cal Wine Tours, provided outstanding service and compassion for the situation and took steps to rectify.

If ever in Temecula again, I will certainly book my wine tasting tours with them. Great team of good people

Thank You So Cal Wine Tours! 😄

I booked this tour for my daughter to celebrate her 23rd birthday with friends. Moses was very accommodating. I asked that he pick them up at the hotel to avoid any drinking/driving and he did so. My daughter said it was one of her best birthdays. Each winery was unique and the personnel were welcoming and knowledgeable. A definite must!

The warm welcome from each winery was great! Calvin our driver took care of all the details and made sure we got the most out of each place. Highly reccomend lunch so you can sit and enjoy the views! Time went by too fast! Celebrating our moms 80th on the tour was the best choice!

I celebrated my 33rd birthday with a trip to the vineyards. The entire experience was amazing. From the bus ride to the wine tasting, food, and music. My friends and I had the most amazing time. The staff were so nice and welcoming. You’ve found yourself lifelong customers

Usually a good time when you're sampling wine all day. Enjoyed the people we were with, driver was good, didn't see him much unless it was driving to and from wineries and/or drop off / pick up. 4 stars as there a 20% service fee ($45) that they charge you at the very end. Read the fine print. I'd rather pay more up front vs being asked about it after a day of drinking...kind of felt like "$45 for your ride back". .The other people we were with kinda felt the same. Other than that it was fun.

My Husband and I booked this tour due to wanting to visit Temecula and have a wine tasting tour and visit numerous vineyards as it is hard to choose just one as they are all beautiful.

We booked a week before and socal wasn’t our first choice but other websites were fully booked. The website and description and reviews were all very professional and we chose the “late tour” 2-6pm.

This tour is advertised as a wine tasting tour, transport between 3 wineries and samples of wine. I have read reviews about how informative the “tour guides” are and will describe each vineyard and tell you some history about them.

This is not a wine tasting tour! We were ushered onto a mini bus and straight away rap music was played very loud whilst other parties sung and danced. It was a 4 minute drive to the first winery (we could have got an Uber and been a lot more comfortable) we were shown to a table with another party, given a glass of something and given a tiny ticket to cross off extra tastings. We were then left to ourselves and did not see the bus driver until he came to pick us up for the 2nd winery.

It was a 7 minute drive to the next winery, again having to deal with loud music on the “party bus” and groups of women dancing. I was asked a couple of days prior to order lunch as it would not be available to order on the day and this would be served at the 2nd winery. Ordered cheese and charcuterie board. Bus driver disappeared as soon as dropping us off. Enquired at the winery about lunch and was told they didn’t have a restaurant and didn’t serve any extras. The only good thing was that I wasn’t charged for this, but obviously not impressed as spent the majority of the time wandering around searching for answers and food. Also not a wine “tour” as advertised, but simply dropped and left at basically a bar, as no information or tour is given of the winery or vineyard.

The 3rd winery things seemed to pick up when we were told we would be provided with a wine tour and visit of the cellar. This got my hopes up only to be let down again as the man running the tour was not informative, he was catering to mainly women and hen parties making jokes and I still don’t know any more about wine than I did when I began the “tour”

Once the “tour” was over, we were only given 2 tickets at this place for tastings (not as advertised) and once we tried to get the tastings so we could leave, we were told they had ran out of white wine! I didn’t think it could get any worse but for a winery to run out of white wine is unacceptable. My Husband was then forced to ask for red wine which came chilled.

I would never book a wine tour through this company again. I was extremely disappointed that it is not clear what you are booking, this cannot be sold as a “wine tour” Even if you were a hen party or big group of women, It may seem like value for money but you would get more value by taking a taxi to a number of bars and just buying some wine and asking the bar staff for suggestions.

Ugh. As if there are not enough Karens every where you go these days. It's as disheartening as it is exhausting, right? This person states that customers "sung and danced" and that she had to "deal with loud music on the party bus and groups of women dancing." What can we say? We have happy customers who enjoy our tours, and yes, they can from time to time end up dancing and singing and having fun. GEE WHIZ! The only truth which actually comes from this undeserving 1 star review is that the Late Bird Tour on a Saturday, which runs from 2 pm - 6 pm, does very often attract customers who are looking to have a great time and can tend to be a little louder than usual. This is 100% true, and that's okay because you know what, why shouldn't people look forward to getting a little loose on a Saturday afternoon in beautiful Temecula Valley Wine Country. If this type of crowd is not your vibe, then we highly recommend paying the extra $10 per person and take the earlier wine tours which begin at either 11 am or 12 pm. You can also tour any other day of the week if you are looking for quieter crowds because no matter what, Saturdays have always been and will always be a little more vibrant with the good, fun-loving energy which many people like to share with one another. Amen!

Our tour organizer Moses was very helpful and provided visits to some very good wineries for our day. Our driver John was kind and always on time for our pick at the Winery site. He kept us hydrated with water and van was always cool and comfortable!!
We would use them again
