Really fun trip. Well planned and the people we met were also great. This was worth the money and gave us a chance to cram in a lot of Santa Barbara life in a short amount of time. Definitely recommend.

Excellent tour showing us lots of Santa Barbara we would undoubtedly of missed. Some really good food, best pizza I've ever tasted! Would recommend you do this tour early as you will want to go back to some of the places you visit.

Great tour - friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. Fun group. A variety of delicious food and lots of it! Readily accommodated the vegetarian and gluten-free needs of my family members. They also had plenty of non-alcoholic options for my teenage daughters. I also appreciated the direct contact - we received a call from the guide when we didn't show up at the correct meeting spot and she pleasantly and patiently directed us to the right spot.

The guide was very knowledgeable. Small but fun group. Went to places I have never been to on my many trips to Santa Barbara. Every place was outstanding. Glad we were walking because it was a lot of food. Worth every penny.

This was one of the best things I did on my vacation! Evan, the owner/tour guide was amazing. She is very knowledgeable about Santa Barbara and it is very obvious that she really loves what she is doing. She was also training a new guide, Kendall, and she was great as well. Evan has put a lot of thought and work into the stops on the tour and where she wants to take her groups. Each place was just as amazing as the previous and all very different so it is a great assortment of things to try. She also has arrangements with most of the stops for discounts if you buy something or want to come back later that day. I was solo when I did this tour and both Evan and Kendall made sure I felt welcomed and included. Everything about this afternoon was perfect!

we had a wonderful tour, it ended up just being my husband and I and our guide. I would say that overall it was a wonderful tour except for one of the stops where we sampled cheese and there was no bread or wine to go with it, they served us water not appetizing at all our guide was very friendly and knowledgable. I would definitely do it againl
