Robert_G, Feb 2024
Our experience was just fantastic. The ride was clean and safe & Dave was very knowledgeable about the areas, wineries and the wine. Wow, this was so much fun. We definitely recommend this to all!

Great time!

Great time! Our tour guide was awesome. So friendly and accommodating. Lunch was really the best. Huge sandwiches that were freshly made. Lots of wine to taste and even time for shopping. We had a great time.
Great day

Wineries were great and our tour host was wonderful!! A fun way to spend the day but I could have done without the stop in old town Temecula.
Wonderful Experience

Firstly, Miss Vicki was a gracious guide and host, who immediately bonded with us. It was me, my mom and sister on the wine tasting journey. She made us feel special and safe. Considering it was a wine tasting tour, she regularly checked on us and made sure we were staying hydrated, especially it since it was an unusually hot day in San Diego County. We had a wonderful time and especially enjoyed the time at Wilson Creek Winery. At the end of the tour, our guide dropped us off directly at our hotel, although it was not the pick up location.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
We truly are gratified to have orchestrated a positively memorable day for your family. That is what we strive for with every Destination Temecula guest. And thank you so much for taking the time to acknowledge Vicki. Cheers!

Loved that we were picked up at our hotel and dropped off directly. This left us able to enjoy the 3 wineries chosen to the fullest-- and fullest it was enjoyed. The pours were great as were the wine selection. The lunch simple but just what was needed. I especially enjoyed the hour given to enjoy Old town Temecula. Would return! Wilson creek winery was a personal favorite-the reds were amazing!
Overall Very Fun with 2 Great Wineries
carissamnash, Feb 2020
Went with a group of four and had a really fun time! Two of the three wineries were great and beautiful. The sparkling wine stop was so crowded and the wine was so sweet we couldn’t wait to get back on the bus. I’m glad we got to see old town Temecula, but I wouldn’t go back. The group on the bus was fun and pretty young, which was great, but the driver talked the entire hour drive out which was too much. On the way back he let us control the music and we had more fun. Lunch was a sandwich box, so I’m glad we brought some of our own snacks.
Response from Host, Feb 2020
Really appreciate your feedback Carissa! For clarity, this is not a shuttle. You participated in our narrated, guided tour which provides fun, accurate information throughout the experience. Most guests who book this particular option are doing so specifically for the commentary which we provide during a portion of the drive to Temecula from San Diego, and then from Old Town Temecula through the wine country for the remainder of the day. Our inclusive, private excursion in a vehicle dedicated exclusively to your group would have been a better fit. Offering departures from any southern California location, there is no commentary (and no Old Town Temecula visit unless it is requested as part of your itinerary). We would love to have you try that option in the future. Cheers!

Dave was entertaining and made the trip enjoyable.. he was flexible as the plans had to change during the day...
Two thumbs up!!
todd_s, Jan 2020
We had a great day. As it turned out, the owner of the company was our tour guide. Bus was very clean and we had plenty of room. Our guide was very informative and you could tell he had a passion for what he does. The wines were outstanding and the people helping us at the wineries bent over backwards to make sure we had a great time. We will be back.
Wonderful Experience!
Garnett_F, Jan 2020
Dave was an excellent guide, informative and entertaining. The wineries were beautiful and the lunch was delicious.
Long Day
Allen_P, Sep 2019
In general the tour was quite good. Our main downside was that we were picked up at out hotel in San Diego at 10:15 AM and dropped back at our hotel at 8:45 PM, about 9 and a half hours duration. Also it was 4 hours from pickup to the first winery stop. The guest pick-up points were very widely spaced. From that point on it was a very leisurely pace, especially at the first stop, which included lunch, again adding to the overall duration. Driver/guide was very accommodating.

Our guide, Sonia was amazing. Very knowledgeable, kind and we would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
11/10 Would book again

Our group had an excellent experience on the Guided Temecula Wine Tour from San Diego. The company was very responsive/accommodating to arranging hotel pick up and drop off, as well as dietary needs for the included lunch about 48 hours before the trip. The Van was very comfortable, and Dave (Tour Host) was very knowledgeable of the region and had some great jokes/games to get all tour participants to get to know one another. We stopped in Old town Temecula for the first hour of the tour for shopping and sight seeing, then proceeded onto the three wineries, with six samples at each. It was an excellent activity for our bachelorette group, but the couples and solo-travelers also had a wonderful time. On the way back, we discussed absolutely booking this tour again if we vacation in the region again. Thank you for a wonderful time!
Temecula winery
Kenneth_J, Mar 2019
Although the weather did not cooperate we had a great time. Wilson Creek and Callaway were our favorite. We tasted some great wines and bought a case from Wilson Creek. Dave our host and driver was wonderful and kept us smiling. On the way back he had us guess songs names and artist. The Mercedes van was comfortable and the ride was pleasant. Especially appreciated that they pick and drop off at your hotel. Thanks Dave for a great excursion.
Fun tour!

Courtney I, Feb 2018
Wonderful tour. Ended up getting a private tour with my friend as Dave took us around Temecula and told us the great spots to visit. He was very informative about the area. The wineries we went to were top notch and beautiful. Thanks for a wonderful day! I would do this tour again and again.
