“santa barbara backroads trip to wine country out of solvang”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We did the 4 winery tour with lunch in an open air hummer of the San Ynez valley, This was 5 stars in my book, if you do this tour make sure you ask for driver Dave Talbot his knowledge of the winerys and wines is incredible and also the history of the area he discussed with us made this tour outstanding. I highly recomend this tour if you are in Santa Barbara or visiting Solvang

“Great wine tour with dave”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Our tour was excellent with driver Dave, very knowledgeable about the area and the wineries. Dave made the tour for the 2 of us from phoenix and Joan from Philly. When we come back again to solving with friends will definitely look you folks up again. In my mind this was 5 stars in terms of overall for our 4 winery tour and excellent lunch. Thank you George and Mary

“Wine Tasting in a Hummer!”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Great experience shared with great people. We were lucky enough to go on this afternoon trip with two other couples, both relative locals (well both from calfornia) and we had a great time, made more so by them! The wine tasting is only part of the experience, the scenery and the transportation is also just as important, we had the 12 seater Hummer all to only 7 of us, so plenty of room to move around! thank goodness for the netting as it was very hot and burnt heads were possible!

“Winetour”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We took the open Hummer. It was VERY windy and the driver did not hand out the blankets (we didn't know there were any) until the return trip when it was warmer. I don't believe they really took backroads so we were on the open highway. I would take an enclosed vehicle in future. Thw wineries were excellent though.

“This was a Winner!”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

My husband and I had such a great, enjoyable experience - couldn't have been better. We went to three beautiful wineries with excellent wine to taste. Our guide, Dave, was extremely knowledgeable in not only wine but also the history of Santa Barbara. Then we ended off with a stop at the junction where the stagecoach used to stop up to the early 1900's. What a treat! I highly recommend doing this. The weather, of course, could not have been more perfect. Thank you!
