My girlfriend and I went to school in Santa Barbara a few years ago and always heard good things about Cloud Climbers, so I decided we had to give it a shot. I booked a Saturday tasting as a birthday surprise for her and she absolutely loved it. Our driver, Millard, was nice and early for our morning pickup (downtown)... More

Our guide Greg was fantastic, the other riders were great, and the wineries visited all accommodating to our group. We especially liked Carhartt. Cloud Climbers was worth every penny, I highly recommend.

This was a great trip. We started the day a bit behind schedule due to logistics, but we quickly rebounded as we visited two wineries/tasting rooms before lunch. Our guide, Greg was full of energy and always focused on making sure that everyone was having a good time. We ended up going to 5 different places and I was completely... More

There were 4 of us initially on this tour. Our adult kids then told us they had "double-booked" our vacation home and they were going on a wine tour. I told them about Cloud Climbers and they said it sounded better than the one they were looking at. I called Leah to see if they could join our group. She... More

Cloud Climbers offered us an amazing experience from beginning to end! This was our first visit to Santa Barbara and the wine tasting tour was a last minute decision which turned into an excellent day! We ended up with a great group and an awesome tour guide who was very knowledgeable of the wineries, wine, and the area. I was... More

My wife and I spent a week in Santa Barbara for our anniversary. I wanted to include a wine tasting during our stay but was concerned about driving after sampling. After checking other businesses that feature wine tasting, we found that Cloud Climbers will: a) pick us up and drop us off at the hotel b) take us even if... More

Went on this tour with my two twenty-something kids. We really liked the open-air ride in the jeep, although it may not be right for those looking for a more cushy, quiet ride. Our driver Jason was exceptionally knowledgeable about the wines, wineries, and local geography. Our four tastings were at small, boutique producers, all of whom had excellent offerings... More

There were six of us in a jeep- configuration was two benches facing one another to maximize conversation on the road. A 4-wheeling tour through a vineyard, lunch from Paninos (!!) at a second vineyard, and visits to two additional tasting rooms recommended by our driver, Joseph. Then some off-road to view breathtaking vistas. An absolutely fabulous day! Joseph was... More
