Santa Barbara Vineyard to Table Taste Tour by Bike
Amazing Bike ride, Wine tasting and local lunch
, Nov 2019
We, my 60year old parents and me, highly recommend this experience! William, the owner and tour guide, was very nice and thoughtful. From the online booking, to the hotel pick up and tour, everything went easily and smooth.
The bike ride is gorgeous but tough. However, with William, you have the option to jump in the van at anytime and continue by car. The wine and olive oil tastings were also nice. And finally, the lunch was carefully thought in an outside sitting near the water and vines- the perfect scenario.
We would definitely do it again!

Completely worth the money spent. Most of the places don’t just pour you a taste, they pour you a glass and the wine is excellent.

It is near Pier so you could take a walk down the beach like we did and it worked out magically.

My childhood friend was visiting from New Mexico. I booked this wine tour and was completed satisfied.
Rick was a perfect driver and guide. He took us to some very nice winery's with great wines. It was educational as well as fun. The other people on our tour were nice and fun.
