    We really enjoyed the day to Temecula! Dave was friendly and knowledgeable. We didn’t feel like the wineries were very prepared for us or happy to have us which was a let down because our group was really excited to be there & that’s why we booked a tour (not the tours fault).

    Thank you so much for sharing your perceptions! One of the most satisfying aspects of our tour is seeing how over the course of the day a diverse group of guests from around the World, unfamiliar with one another at the beginning, mesh so wonderfully and celebrate an entertaining, unique experience that hopefully becomes a fond lifetime memory! Gives us confidence there is hope for humanity ;)
