It is a perfect relaxing day trip along the California coast. My tour guide Armin was very friendly and knowledgable in making a very memorable trip. He made quick stops at San Simeon to see the Northern elephant seals and Mission Santa Barbara. I would recommend to my friends because I had the best small group travel experience.

Great guide and a wonderful experience, seeing wild Zebra in California and tour guide made the trip o memorable - tour group were like old friends by the end of the day
Value for money and overall a well-paced, informative day out! I especially enjoyed Hearst castle and would have love to spend more time exploring the site.
The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable. Very happy with the tour.
Very fun and interesting trip Giovanni was our tour guide and he was terrific
Luxury transportation, beautiful weather, add in an amazing tour guide, Geovoni, to make the perfect day trip. Hearst castle is well worth the cost and time it takes to get there. We stopped every hour to explore along the way.
Unforgettable memories and experience!! I highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide Giovanni was exceptional. We felt like VIP'S his knowledge and experience of the area went far beyond. He truly loves what he does and it shows. The scenery is magnificent and me and my Mom made precious memories that we will treasure for ever. This tour is one not to be missed if you are ever in California for a few days!!!!

Richard was an excellent tour guide. I'd highly recommend this tour. The day ended with an unexpected but very pleasant surprise: a visit to watch elephant seals.
Richard was my tour guide. Excellent!!! Thank you Viator for sending Richard for my tour. I really enjoyed my day and company. I recommend Viator to others and I will be using Viator in New York City in June. Many thanks, Tracy Cash.
Really enjoyed the tour. The tour guide was very good and there was so much to do. So happy this was a full day trip.
Great trip - Richard was a great tour conductor and the driver was excellent!
This tour was sensational. Our tour guide Richard was friendly, accomodating and very informative. I highly recommend this tour. Great day out.
Wonderful day out with the family. Even though the day was long, we saw so much!

This was a great day trip. While it starts early, you cover so much ground. After quickly touring Santa Barbara, you stop in the adorable town of Solvang which was perfect timing to get breakfast from one of the local pastry shops in town. Hearst Castle was so impressive and docent guides really painted a picture of what life was like there with William.
Again a tour I would highly recommend. Also a very early beginning, but as you have a lot driving to get from one place to the other, you have also a chance to nap a bit. Richard a very friendly, knowledgeable and funny tour guide had a lot of interesting stories to share. And Jakob the driver, took us safely from one spot to the other. He had to deal with a flat tyre and did that in a short time and very professional so we did not miss any of the sites on our tour. Would book this tour if you want to see a bit of the costal side up north.
First rate guide Richard provided us all with a most enjoyable day. Hearst Castle was amazing. Would have appreciated a time set aside for dinner since the day was very long. All in all, however, splended!
Best guide-- knowledgable on MANY subjects-- geography, history, crops. Richard how soon I forget-- senior moment, think that was his name had great sense of humor, really took care of us. Best food-- loved Solvang.Best driver-- I felt so safe. It was a PERFECT day trip, and I will be forever grateful for such a wonderful day. YES, I highly recommend this trip, this guide, this driver.

Wonderful day, Hearst Castle well worth visiting. Guide Richard is just the most informative and helpful guide you could ask for. We were the only two people booked on this day, but still operated for us, and went out of his way to make it all happen. A definite must do while in L.A.
The trip was a lot of fun. The tour guide was very knowledgeble.
One of the best tips ever. Our tour guide was great. Great deal too.
This was beautiful. I had never heard of Hearst Castle and I believe visiting this castle is a must for really getting a feel for Hollywood culture.
