It was a lovely way to see Santa Barbara. Our tour guide was Richard and he gave us a nice tour of Santa Barbara in 90 minutes. He was interactive and informative and covered most of the key areas during the tour. It was time well spent.

What a pleasant way to see lovely Santa Barbara! Our driver/narrator, Rob Reith, obviously loves his town and sharing it eagerly and interestingly with his passengers! Thank YOU for this memorable afternoon. Your wife in the gift shop/ticket sales was caring and delightful.
