    My husband and I had an amazing time on this food tour. Our tour guide, Maddy was the best! The food and wine choices were delicious. We could not have asked for a better experience. Would definitely recommend, and would do it again!

    We had a wonderful day with Karina! She took us to three unique experiences and shared her deep appreciation for the region and the grapes grown. Learning about the history of the land and integrity of the small organic and biodynamic wine producers was so interesting!

    We had the most amazing time with Grapeline Tours. Cary was a our tour guide for the day and he made the experience that much better. I would highly recommend Grapeline and Cary for anyone looking for a wine tour in Santa Barbara/Solvang.

    I enjoyed the information about the different areas and of the city. I didn’t like the insensitive comments by the driver regarding the name change of the black Sambo restaurant. If he didn’t understand my perspective, as a black person, he should have just said that the name had been changed, Instead, he commented on enjoyment of the children’s reading book about black Sambo, which left the impression that the whole name change was much about nothing. Other than that, he was very helpful with assisting my sight challenged husband.

    Our family of 10, from South Africa, took a 3-day trip on the 3 October 2022. We had a fabulous time with our driver/guide Jacob. He was very informative and most accommodating wherever we went. We would highly recommend him as a guide if anyone would like to venture on this trip. The areas we visited and the explanations/comments from Jacob were really good.
    My only negative comments are as follows:
    1. We all felt it was too rushed the 1st day to San Fransisco and that an additional day could have been added to make it more enjoyable, ie we would have liked to have stopped off in Santa Barbara and spend a bit of time on the beach area, this was not possible and we moved on to the Mission, which we all though could have been more of a pass by visit. Our visit to Solvang was too short for this lovely village and could be made a lunch stop over.
    2. Jacob had to use a hand microphone as he was both the driver and the guide. This made a few of us uncomfortable as he had to keep taking his eyes off the road to pick up the mike and replace it. I would really suggest this be rectified and a head mike be supplied.
    Otherwise, we had the most amazing time.

    We loved our bike tour of the wineries 🍷! Our guide, William, was very professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend the ebike for those who are not into very strenuous exercise - there were 8 hills on the loop. The ebike assist feature made the tour very enjoyable. Got enough exercise without being too exhausted. The lunch and wine tasting concluded our trip beautifully. Highly recommend this tour. Aloha!

    So happy we booked this tour. William was great. Pick up & bike fitting was easy. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the area, vineyards, grapes, etc. it was a couple hour scenic ride through beautiful country followed by 2 wonderful wine tasting stops. I was very impressed with his patience getting my 82 yr old aunt comfortable on the e-bike. The lunch was great! William made the day easy and special! Thank you!!!

    We were picked up punctually by Sunny who proved to be a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide! She asked frequently if we were comfortable as well as offering water/ Lacroix to drink! Additionally, she stopped at an olive oil farm which was a bonus. All in all, she made our day perfect! We will definitely take this tour again if we return to the area! Thanks so much!

    Our driver, Anthony, was knowledgable, helpful and had chosen 3 great vineyards to visit. The day went smoothly and he kept us on schedule without being intrusive. Lunches were awesome.

    We really enjoyed our kayak tour with guide Angelina. We would have no idea where we would be able to go without her. She took us all around the harbour, out to sea and back along the pier. Saw some wildlife along the way. We were
    complete beginners but had no trouble, teens shared a double kayak and the adults had singles. Great customer service at booking too.

    By far the best CA wine tour we’ve ever experienced. Exceptional vineyards with superb door to door service. My highest possible recommendation!
