Had such a great time, one of the best guided tours I've taken. The clear speaking, easy going attitude of our guide, Kendall, really helped to make the day all the more enjoyable. The history stops are informative and the choice of food and wine venues is perfect. Very organised outfit, I'd highly recommend this for a really good day... More

My husband and I did this tour last Sunday 4/09/2017 and had a great time. Our guide was very up beat, friendly, knowledgeable, her excitement is infectious and I didn't have to worry about anything the guide takes care of it all. All of the locations have excellent food, there were items I would have never tried on my own... More

I have been on this tour twice now. I am a local Santa Barbarian and went on the tour when it first started 3 years ago and again a few weeks ago when I had some friends visiting. The tour was great years ago and even better now. We had so much fun and all of the locations are locally... More

The guide was very nice, even though I doubt she is a foodie herself. We had very nice people in our group and good conversation. We tasted some good wines and I liked the passion of the young owner from C'Est Cheese. Still from all those raving reviews I really expected more. Nothing of the food selections was really special.... More

We met at Renauds Patisserie and continued through the afternoon with a great selection of local spots. Our guide, Brittney, was friendly and knowledgeable. Not only do you get to try food and wine but also get little tidbits of history about Santa Barbara. Highly recommend this for couples with friends. Thank you for the experience!

We were so pleasantly surprised to be the only 2 people on yesterday's tour (especially after so many wine tour companies cancelled on us because they had a 4-person minimum). It speaks well to the company that they accommodated us even though they wouldn't maximize their profits with a more full group. Indeed, the customer service nature of this company... More
