This tour was all around fantastic... the sights, staff, and fellow passengers. Dorit, our tour guide, was funny, friendly, and made our time together all the more enjoyable with her exceptional photography skills. My friends found it hard to believe that we did so much in three days. I don't know any other tour that includes visits to all the major landmarks in Santa Barbara, Carmel, Solvang, San Francisco, and Yosemite. The visit to Yosemite was what I was looking forward to the most and it did not disappoint. We saw Bridal Veil, Tunnel View, Half Dome, El Capitan and had time to do a hike and have lunch. The group of people were super chill, very respectful and friendly towards each other. Even when unexpected situations occurred (e.g. no translator for the Italian couple, 'dry breakfast' at the Clarion), Dorit handled it quickly and professionally. Sam was an excellent, safe driver and such a gentleman. I'd take this tour again.
Overall it was a good experience would like to stay a bit longer at Pebble Beach & Carmel. The San Francisco day was excellent. I would skip the City Hall and would prefer more a stop at Golden Gate Park or at Muir Woods. The Yosemite day was great the only problem we had was an Austrian couple was late by 25 minutes from our first El Capitan stop. This made coming back to Los Angeles very late.
This was immensely fun and relaxing as all the driving was done by our friendly driver Paulie. He took us to great wine tasting locations and was very personable. He had an agenda but was flexible if we wanted to change things up. Met new people on the ride and had a great time.
It was well organised and great experience. Would have preferred longer time in Vegas since we stayed there for about half day. Also the last day we just had one hour in Zion which is not ideal, would have appreciated if it’s Antelope instead of Zion.
Tony was a wonderful guide. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. He was especially good at educating us novices on wine tasting and the process of winemaking. We would 100% recommend taking a tour with Tony.
