While we loved the open air Hummer, I would recommend a jacket for the chilly morning ride to the valley. Dave was excellent, very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. We visited 4 wineries and had a very tasty... More

We had a black limousine that held 18 of us UCSB grads celebrating our 50th year reunion, and it was a relaxing, fun tour. We went to Sunstone & Bridlewood Wineries, and had a stop in Los Olivos, then a great stop at Cold Spring Tavern on the old San Marcos Pass Rd. Memories galore for us. Dave was excellent... More

Traveling in this open air Hummer is the only way to experience Wine Country! David was very knowledgable about the area from Santa Barbara Mission to cruising Hwy 154 through the scenic coastal range. His passion for fine wine took wine tasting to a new level. Great choice of 4 wineries, but I may suggest 2 or 3 wineries is... More

Took the Hummer tour to Joshua Tree National Park. The guide Don, was excellent. Tour was extremely informative - history, geography, people, climate, etc. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend if visiting the Palm Springs area.

We can't say enough about this great experience. It was a great way to spend a day touring wine country in SB county, whether you've been there before or are a first time visitor. If you like the outdoors and aren't fussy, this is the tour to take. The open air atmosphere was terrific. Dave was awesome - can't give... More
