I went with a friend. We have never been to California and wanted to do a wine tasting. We went for the full day. The cost was reasonable and we had lunch at an amazing restaurant. Trevor, our tour guide and driver, was great. We went to four different wineries and an olive oil tasting. Our group was so much... More

Our ride began at 9:30 in the morning on a cloudy day, by the time the ride came to an end the sun was shinning and the weather was great. Our guide was extremely informative, the ride was smooth, and the views were great! Captain Jack's offers great activities if you're in the Santa Barbara area!

All of us at Captain Jack's tours loves sharing the beauty of Santa Barbara. This canyon, ocean view ride is one of the best ways to enjoy it. Hope to see you again. More

My friend and I had a great time on this tour. We were limited on time and it was difficult to find a tour that took you to the wineries without taking up the entire day. Our guide Trevor was very friendly, easy to talk to, and professional. We made three wine stops and one to taste olive oil. Bridlewood... More

My friend was in town from Oklahoma. Neither of us had done any kind of tasting or tour so we signed up for the full day Wine Country Tour. The day was amazing from the second we stepped in the van. During the day we visited four wineries and one olive oil farm. The day was a perfect mixture of... More

Great time and a very informative lesson that made the day so much more fun- because I had no experience kayaking! Awesome guide, beautiful views and plenty of playful seals while paddling around the harbor, out to the 1mile marker and the pier. This company really does what they can to tailor your experience to you which is fantastic and... More

I took a good friend on the Afternoon Delight Wine Tour for her birthday and we had an amazing afternoon. Bobby was our guide and was absolutely awesome! He picked us promptly, got to know a little about us and our wine preferences, then made sure we went to the right places. We stopped at 2 wineries, a tasting room... More

Our tour guide was Bobby. He picked us up on the dot of 8am, told us how the day was going to proceed and gave us some choices around this. Our tour started with a horse ride on the beach followed by wine tasting in the Santa Ynez valley. We loved it all. Bobby is a funny guy and kept... More

(There isn't an option to categorize this visit for what it was so I had to categorize it as "couples") I booked a sunset cruise through Captain Jack’s Tours for the end of April. My boyfriend and his siblings pooled their gifts and gave their Mother a trip for her 75th birthday. I thought this would be a great way... More

Thank you for your review. Our guests are our eyes & ears and I agree with you the cruise you described is not one most of us would have enjoyed and certainly not what most of us would have expected. I can assure you steps will be taken to make this cruise an enjoyable one for all. Again, thank you... More

People in office were very responsive to phone calls and emails. Allowed me to set up visits to wineries of my choosing. Picked up my group of 16 at cruise ship dock with 2 vans. Both drivers were very knowledgeable about area and provided insights. Visited 3 locations with plenty of time to taste terrific wines. Lunch was arranged on... More

Bobby picked us up at our B&B right on time. We stopped and picked up a wonderful couple, and we were on the way. Four wineries, an olive oil tasting, a drive through Solvang, and a wonderful lunch made our trip unforgettable.
