We did the afternoon tour from 1-6pm. Dave was our tour guide and he was really awesome. It was a bit extra to do the tour with just me and my wife but I think it was worth it. We went places on our own time, went to three vineyards, and the Cold Springs Tavern at the end is great. Sliced beef bbq sandwiches and beer.

Recently, our family visitied the Santa Barbara, CA area.... who goes there without tasting some wine?!! We booked Backroads Wine Tours and are so happy we did! Our guide, Mike, was great at his job, well versed on the area and the wineries visited. The lunch was delicious too! Mike was very easy to be around - felt like hanging out with a good friend. He also provided some fine tunes during the jeep ride which was an added bonus in our opinion! In a heartbeat, we will do it all again upon return to the area! Good people, excellent wines, nature at its most glorious...lots of sunshine and fresh air... does life get any better???!!! Keep doing what you do Backroads Wine Tours.... you do it very well! Thanks for the memories that touch all the senses!! Until next time.... be well and happy!

We toured four wineries and each of them was a great experience. Our driver Mike was a lot of fun and had a lot of knowledge of the area and the local wine industry. The drive back over the mountains on an old dirt road in the Hummer was a fun way to see some amazing scenery. We would do this tour again when back in SB!

This is the best wine excursion in Santa Barbara. They take you to wineries that are exclusive and high quality. Highly recommend Gainey winery. Also the tour guide Mike had so much knowledge and a great personality. This is a must if you are in Santa Barbara. Loved the open air hummer too!
