Customer Reviews

Rita O

Melissa was very knowledgeable about the places we visited. She drove through Solvang and Los Olivos first to point out interesting sights and great places to eat and/or taste wine before letting me explore on my own. I enjoyed having time to walk around on my own to see and do what was of interest to me. The olive oil tasting was great as several unusual flavors were offered. Melissa also went to great lengths to drive by some of the locations where the movie Sideways was filmed. The whole tour was very enjoyable and I really recommend her services.
