Perfect Sunday Afternoon in Santa Barbara

We really enjoyed our food tour of downtown Santa Barbara. Our guide Georgia was the absolute best and really made the tour for us! She showed us the historical sites in downtown SB with an engrossing story behind each building. Our favorite part of the tour was the Grassini Vineyard stop. Excellent wine and cheeses highlighted our visit there. The final stop with McConnell's ice cream was the perfect cap to a perfect day. Will definitely do it again the next time we visit Santa Barbara.

Madly was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was nice that there were just four of us in the group so she could answer all of our questions. The historical facts were very interesting and the food was good.

We had a great time with tour guide Linda exploring downtown Santa Barbara! Foodies that we are, the food and wine establishments did not dissapoint! Linda’s knowledge of Santa Barbara history and architecture were so appreciated. We saw many new areas and know much more about the city. Highly Recommend! Ask for Linda!
