"My son, his girlfriend, and I used Classic Wine Tours on Memorial weekend and had a wonderful experience. We became fast friends with the other couple. Scenic and comfortable ride, great wine, good lunch, and knowledgeable tour guide. Absolutely fun!"
"My Mom, Auntie, and I took a weekend trip to Santa Barbara and decided to try out a wine tour and stumbled upon Kevin and his wife's tour. Both of them were extremely knowledgable and hospitable.
"I would highly recommend this company after the tour my husband and I did. The pick up at our hotel was easy, the new Mercedes van was comfortable, and the service from Kevin was friendly, knowledgeable and fun.
"This was my first experience booking a wine tasting excursion and I'm so glad I chose SB Classic Wine Tours! Shereen was so knowledgeable about the wine making process and an all around great guide! I was also impressed with the variety of choices offered for lunch. I would definitely book again with SB Classic Wine Tours!"
"So happy to have found this tour. Picked up at our hotel, no hassles, great wineries and other tips.
"WOW! What an amazing time in such a scenic and beautiful place. We traveled in style and comfort in the Mercedes Benz Sprinter van. The driver Kevin was incredibly sweet, attentive, prompt, responsive, and professional. Though we had a specific plan in mind, Kevin was incredibly knowledgeable of the wineries and had many wonderful suggestions. We were all so pleased with the overall experience that we are getting ready to set up another tour with the boys. Can't wait! If you are unsure of which travel service to select, STOP! This is it! "
