Dirty, crowded, little town. Our trip to santa cruz was waste of time. We will never suggest our friends or any one to stop out there.

There are so many sights to Visit here. It is all so breath taking. The wharf is a nice walk, I recommend the Dolphin Restaurant at the end of the pier. The food is amazing, and reasonable.

Great vineyards, gorgeous wine, friendly driver. We did the shared tour and our tour-mates were a very charming bachelorette party.

Almost 2 hours late. Apparently they only have one driver, and when they ran into timing issues with an earlier pickup, we got the shaft. When we arrived at the pickup location at SFO, the driver hadn't even left Santa Cruz. Unacceptable. BEWARE!!!
