    Anthony was a terrific tour guide! I really enjoyed the day. The scenery and wines were amazing! We went to 3 vineyards - all unique and beautiful. Wine was great and Anthony was super knowledgeable.

    We truly enjoyed the tour we had with Scott and the "group" of couples (4). Wonderful atmosphere, great time at the wineries and interaction with the wine makers and owners that put the time in to make their wine unique and delicious. Once we arrived in the valley nearby SB we had more than enough time to enjoy the wines, have conversations and gain a better understanding of the wines from the Central Coast and the uniqueness they have. Scott was a consummate host and even though we were in a luxury van and at beautiful properties, it was like we were hosted in his living room for a unforgettable "day of adventure". I would definitely recommend this tour as a "must do" if you enjoy wine and learning about different regions of "wine countries" and spending time with people that are fun to be with. You won't be able to duplicate this experience outside of Scott's tour!

    Driver gave us a good tour of the area. I wish we would have taken the tour sooner. Every guest to Santa Barbara should take this tour.

    I booked this trip for my friend’s bachelorette weekend getaway. I really enjoyed every minute of it. Tasted some amazing wines and enjoyed the beautiful views. Cary was our driver for the day. He went out of his way for my friend and I by taking the time to take all the photos for us and share his wisdom of the wineries. The lunch we were served was absolutely delicious. Thank you Grapeline wine tours for an amazing day.

    The wine tour took us through some of the most stunning scenery, Santa Ynez is truly a national treasure. We visited two wineries and one tasting room, and none were disappointing. Of all the bottles I had , the Brick Barn Pinot Noir and the Refugio Ranch Petit Syrah were good enough that I shelled out more than I’m usually comfortable spending on a bottle for both. Linda was a great hostess and driver, and the rest of the guests on this tour made for great company on this outing, would highly recommend.

    Our Santa Barbara bike and wine tour with William was a delightful experience! William's extensive knowledge of both the region's wines and history shone through, making the ride informative and engaging. The breathtaking views from the bikes were the perfect backdrop for our wine tastings, and the quality of the e-bikes themselves made the ride effortless and enjoyable. William's patience with our group was commendable, and we all appreciated the unique stops like the olive oil tasting, lavender farm, and charming Danish town. If you're looking for a scenic, informative, and delicious way to explore Santa Barbara, I highly recommend this tour with William!

    Our guide (Robert) was fantastic and really knew the city. The tour only goes to two locations and the second one was packed and noisy.
    Tooling around in a sidecar around Santa Barbra in a sidecar though is a lot of fun. Be aware though that this is historical tour of the city with stops at two wine bars … not wineries. Worth doing though
    Great ride and guide but not enough wine

    Sully is an incredible guide! We learned so much about the history of the region and all of the people and stories come alive with Sully's great storytelling. We highly recommend Sully's tour.

    We had a great time on our wine trip. Just 4 of us which was perfect. We boosted some great wineries, all at the suggestion of our tour guide. Money well spent!

    We had so much fun on our e-bike tour with Colin. His love and appreciation for the area is evident and he is a great tour guide. He was patient and accommodating with everyone's differing preferences with the bikes. The route was easy to navigate - especially with his knowledge of the roads and paths. The views of the ocean, beaches and mountains are spectacular. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend CalCoast Adventures. Would love to return sometime and do the Bike and Beer tour!

    Thank you Rick for the wonderfully curated tour! Each boutique vineyard stop was nothing short of amazing (great service, delicious wines, and plenty of smiles). The gourmet lunch sandwiches provided were delicious and filling.

    Rick made sure to check on how we’re doing from time to time to make sure we had everything we needed which was very nice! He even provided us plenty of water just to keep us from dehydration. Also, he’s a great and genuine conversationalist. A true class act!

    We had a wonderful day! Our driver, Frances, picked us up in a large and very comfortable van. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the region and local wines. We enjoyed wines at three different wineries. I typically have low expectations for box lunches, but our lunch was delicious.

    Overall, a great day, and I would definitely go on this tour again.

    What a great experience. A beautiful ride through mostly rural country roads with fantastic views along with a history lesson on the area. Then 2 great, personal wine tastings at local wineries. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone considering it.
