First trip to Santa Barbara

We had a great experience on the Santa Barbara food tour yesterday, it was really neat to see all the little hidden nooks that held wine tastings and local eateries. Loved the relaxed atmosphere on the tour, did not feel rushed at all. This was our first time to Santa Barbara so we enjoyed getting to know the history as well as the food and wine. Linda our tour guide was awesome!

The host was good and gave us lots of history about the city. The length of the tour was good both in time and distance. Could have used a little more food history and a little more about the local scene. Did not like the pictures we took with masks on. Thought we could have done that better by taking pics of couples alone without masks and then sending us the pics.

Not as wonderful as I expected. Pizza, taco, noodle bowl and some macaroons. I felt that for the price a margarita could have been served with the taco, coffee with the macaroons, and the two wine stops were just soso. I was hoping to get a selection of some unique foods that are popular in Santa Barbara. Guess I should have read more before booking.

The entire experience from beginning to end was flawless. The phone staff was knowledgeable and clear about the questions I asked ...it was my first walking tour and I wanted to be prepared . My girlfriend and I got to first location greeted by Brittany who was waiting and so excited to be our guide for this adventure.She was not only prepared she was easy going and so easy to talk to and ask questions .We had a such a good time ! I loved the content of the tour . It truly was a value and I would do it again in a minute.Your guide makes all the difference in the world he or she sets a tone . It’s not just being schooled that important but also the personal touches that make it special. Thank you Brittany for making Sunday such a special day☀️

Did a road trip from LA to Sacramento - this was one of our favorite things my husband and I did. You learn interesting facts about Santa Barbara and get to try some great food. My husband and I were stuffed by the end! Diane did a great job!

This tour is a fabulous way to enjoy great food and wine while learning some Santa Barbara history. Brittany our tour guide had an amazing personality and made our tour fun! She remembered all our names and encouraged interaction between the group. Seven places in about 3.5 hours. Two of the stops were to taste some locally made wines. We started at an award winning bakery and ended with pizza and ice cream. In between, we had a sampling of Asian cuisine and olive oil tasting at a local indoor marketplace. What really stood out was the excellent wines produced in Santa Barbara. Two tasting stops with four pours each. Time was allotted to purchase wine and olive oil if any in the group were interested with a 15 discount. Don't eat too much before you go on this tour. It's worth the cost and remember to tip.
