I booked a tour with Breakaway for myself and 7 out of town family members and friends. The company was completely amendable to my ideas and allowed me to customize the tour. They provided our group with an amazing driver named Ray who was wonderful and followed my itinerary to the letter. He also made great suggestions about the perfect place to have the picnic lunch that I had packed. He had extensive knowledge of the surrounding wine industry and was very entertaining and fun as well as educational. He was also quite the gentleman and helped me spread out the picnic lunch and then reload the van and even provided a tablecloth for our picnic table. I would highly recommend this tour company. They proved to be competent and professional in every aspect. My family and friends had a fantastic time and are already planning to book another tour next year in the San Luis Obispo wine region of Edna Valley.

“Amazing Experience with Melinda”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We ended up with break away on our Valentine's weekend trip because all of the "top rated" companies on Tripadvisor were booked and I've got to say I'm extremely glad it worked out that way. We had an amazing day with Melinda who clearly is rooted in the community and has great relationships at the vineyards we visited. Only being with two other couple meant exceptional service from both Melinda and each of the wineries we stopped at and a 5 hour tour turned into six and a half. Running into a tour bus of the most highly rated company made us realize how lucky we were, they were on a small bus with a large group that clearly cared more about getting drunk than sampling great wines and getting to know great people. If you're coming to the area track down Break Away tours and ask for Melinda!

Hello Jason and a very happy belated Valentines greeting to you and yours. We are so glad that we had the pleasure of you and yours on board. I think you hit the nail on the head in regards to your take on the day as wine is our Passion and sharing it with others is our goal.

We like to keep the tours on the more intimate size, adding additional smaller vehicles to busy days vs using a big bus. This is our preferred format and we find that our guests agree. Melinda is a treasure trove of wine knowledge as well as just being an exceptional person. :D

We hope to have the pleasure again soon... Until then ~ Cheers!

“Top notch Wine Tour!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

We got a great package for wine crush weekend. We were picked up at our hotel in Paso Robles, was greeted by a friendly driver. He was very accommodating, as my girlfriend was very susceptible to car sickness, he let her sit up front. We went to several great wineries, giving us a wide variety of different wine styles, and was provided a tasty lunch. Very enjoyable experience.

“Paso Robles Wine Tasting Tour”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

We recently used Breakaway Tours for our small group on a one day tour of Paso Robles. We loved working with the owner Jill - she quizzed us about our interests and set up a wonderful itinerary. I would recommend them to anyone - our driver Ray was very knowledgeable about the area, professional and accommodating. I would absolutely use them again.
