I wrote a previous review of the Scenic Tour, It is a very popular review of one of the most beautiful urban drives. But recently Santa Barbara and specifically Montecito has experienced a very serious natural disaster, which has taken lives and left this amazing place in a state not recommended for tourists. With respect for the land and the residents here, I am respectfully posting this review to inform would be visitors to consider another activity if traveling to the area. The residents of Montecito need time to heal and much of the recommended drive is not currently navigable. Consider staying in Santa Barbara proper or driving out to the Santa Ynez Valley for sight seeing and of course wine tasting, paragliding, sail plane rides. Or coastal activities such as whale watching and beach combing. The residents will thank you and you will get the most out of your visit to this magical place.
