We had a good experience on our wine trip to 3 wineries with a gourmet picnic lunch included. We could have visited more wineries but decided we'd like to head back home on the 1 to get a view of the ocean. Our driver, Ray, was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We originally had a group of 6 and a van... More

It is true that the price on the private charters fluctuate with the number of guests on board as your largest fixed cost is your transportation and... More

Jill was fantastic during the planning stage, listening to my list of wants, and executing flawlessly.

It was a wonderful and informative day from beginning to end. From the time we left until we returned. At each venue we were greeted warmly and treated in a very special manner. Our driver was great, and Jill made the experience more than pleasant and enjoyable. It was truly a treat. Would certainly do it again!

We were in Santa Barbara/Santa Ynez Valley celebrating a friend's 40th birthday. We were lucky to find Jill through one of the bday weekend participants and she took care of everything from there. She took our list of intended wineries and made very specific and knowledgeable suggestions based on her experience in the area. The wineries were all expecting us... More
