What People Say!

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing...

“A fantastic trip with Julie and Grape Adventures.

From the moment we booked this in the UK, Julie worked hard to tailor our day to make sure our day was perfect. We were picked up from our hotel in Santa Monica and the tour exceeded our expectations. Julie took us to some beautiful vineyards with fantastic wine and food.

A real bonus was the great regional knowledge and information shared on the breathtaking journey.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Grape Adventures.”

Birthday Wine Tour

Julie and Grape Adventures was great. She was a great host and treated me and my wife with total professionalism.

She was informative on the locations we attended and we enjoyed the places she picked.

We had a great time from the time they picked us up to the time they dropped us off.

I would encourage anyone planning a wine tour to book with Grape Adventures.

Had a Grape Adventure with Julie!

The Grape Adventures Wine Tour was the highlight of our recent trip to LA and this was all down to the meticulous planning, great enthusiasm and generous hospitality provided by Julie and Ken.

Julie and Ken went over and above to ensure that we had an abundance of options when it came to planning our tour so that each tasting was different, which allowed us to see a range of vistas along the Californian coast that we otherwise would have missed.

Some fun facts about Julie and Ken – they are insanely talented traffic navigators, have an encyclopedic knowledge regarding the LA area and wine and are pros in providing exceptional client service, often going beyond the call of duty to ensure their clients have a memorable and enjoyable experience.

If you’re looking to plan a wine tour, look no further than Grape Adventures!

Best Wine Tour in Malibu!

We had an absolutely incredible time with Julia and Ken, completely exceeded our expectations! Amazing wine and very generous hospitality, brilliant knowledge of all the celeb spots etc too. Visited the most gorgeous locations, would never have found these gems without them! Couldn’t recommend highly enough, we had the best day of our trip!

Mother - Daughter Trip to Temecula Wine Country

After a lot of research, I contacted Julie at Grape Adventures to schedule a wine tasting tour around Los Angeles area. Working with Julie was a pleasure.  She listened to what we wanted to do and came up with some great options for us (a mother/daughter trip with our young adult girls).  We ended up going to Temecula.  Julie picked us up at our hotel in Santa Monica and had an awesome day planned out for us.  We went to 3 vineyards, each beautiful, delicious and very different from the last.  We had a great day and our girls truly loved it too!  Julie was awesome and I would definitely recommend her and Grape Adventures to anyone seeking a high quality, well planned wine tour.

We booked a private tour to Malibu with wine tasting and WOW!

We booked a private tour to Malibu with wine tasting and WOW! First, Julie reached out to me after I booked and together we planned the whole day with places and tastings that our family would love. There was time at each spot but since it was a private tour, we had some flexibility which was amazing! The communication before was great and Julie and Ken picked us up on time in a very clean and comfortable Sprinter van. It was a fabulous day! They gave us lots of great information along the way and pointed out places we wanted to see. They were both very knowledgeable and friendly. Everything was booked and ran very smoothly. It was the highlight of our trip and I would HIGHLY recommend a private tour! Malibu was great! Next time, we are going to try Santa Barbara with Julie!

Santa Barbara Wine Country Tour

We had such a fantastic time with Julie and her husband showing us around the Santa Barbara area.  They were very knowledgeable of the area, always pointing out interesting things we would see on the drive from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara.   They brought us to 3 amazing wineries. The wine was fantastic at all of them and each of them had a completely different atmosphere which we thought was great. If you are interested in touring the Santa Barbara wine country, I would highly recommend going with Grape Adventures.

Wonderful birthday!

We had such a wonderful time on the tour with Julie! They worked with us to craft a custom experience for our trip to Santa Barbara for my birthday. They were sweet, efficient with our time and knowledgeable about key landmarks and historical sites on our journey to and from Santa Barbara. Looking forward to spending time with them again in the future and cannot recommend them enough!
