This was an absolutely amazing experience travelling through some of the most beautiful countrysides SoCal has to offer. The tour guide was both friendly and knowledgeable and the selections of wines on offer was top-notch; I ended up taking several bottles home for both gifts and personal consumption. 10/10 experience, would book again in a heartbeat!

An amazing tour to 3 different wineries, though the tour guide, (I don't remember her name), was so unfriendly and wasn't much of a tour guide but a driver.
she was silent the whole trip to and from wineries.
She Didn't say much and it seemed like she didn't want to be there at all.
The 3 wineries were amazing and the cupcakes were absolutely delicious
Hopefully next time we get a better tour guide.

There is also a sign in the bus saying social distancing required, however, the bus was full about 10 people and were were all packed in
No room for social distancing

Not at all as advertised. No cupcake pairings. Just a random box of cupcakes from the market that were hot and melted from sitting in the back of the van. Some how we were mixed in with people that had not selected the cupcake tour so everyone was wondering why we got these random cupcakes and they got none. Very weird.
