HOW DOES IT WORK? Like the Private tour, the Shared Tour offers you the freedom and flexibility to make your own winery, wine, food and sightseeing choices with almost all of the benefits of a luxury private tour, yet at a more economical cost and all of the safety and fun.
WINERIES, RESTAURANTS, SIGHTSEEING: When you start your tour, you will receive our daily curated availability list of potential stops. Choose 3 to 4 wineries, tasting rooms, restaurant, village or sightseeing stops when you arrive at the tour from a daily curated availability list. We will provide descriptions and details to help you choose.
WINE: Choose the wines that you want to drink. Purchase wine by the glass or by the bottle. Tasting flights may or may not be available due to Covid-19 restrictions. Tasting fees and wine purchases not included in the tour price.
LUNCH: Choose your lunch experience in one of the nearby villages of Los Olivos, Solvang or Santa Ynez. Lunch not included in tour cost.
GUIDES: Julie and Ken, founders of Grape Adventures and enthusiastic ambassadors of Central and Southern California! No hired guides. We will be your guides throughout the day sharing our knowledge and stories, just as we would on one of our private tours.
DURATION: Between 5 and 6 Hours enjoying wine country and the surrounding villages.
TRANSPORTATION: Luxury SUV with leather seats, panoramic sunroof, extra-long to store your belongings and wine purchases.

3 GUEST MINIMUM REQUIRED PER SHARED TOUR:
If the tour does have 3 guests confirmed 72 hours before departure, you will be given the option to #1: pay the additional $99 guest fee/s to meet the minimum cost for the tour to run (3 x $99 = $297 plus any additional fees), #2: reschedule another tour date, or #3: receive a 100 percent refund. If someone else joins the tour at the last minute and we are able to meet the 3 guest minimum, you will be refunded your upgraded fee.
CANCELLATION & RESCHEDULING POLICY:
Cancellations must be made at least 72 hours prior to the tour date in order to receive a gift certificate or refund. A gift certificate for the full value can be e-mailed OR a refund can be issued, minus a 10% cancellation fee. Grape Adventures charges the full amount for no-shows or cancellations made within 72 hours of a scheduled tour. This rule is nonnegotiable because our team needs time to communicate with the wineries to make changes and to remain in good standing with them.
Rescheduling must be done at least 72 hours in advance. We will make every effort to reschedule your tour, or offer a gift certificate for the full value.
We cannot refund, reschedule tours or offer gift certificates for cancellations or changes within 72 hours of the originally scheduled tour. – In order to keep our business in good standing, unfortunately, this has to be a “strict” rule, no matter how legitimate the excuse – or no matter how much we wish we could help.
Grape Adventures (TCP 39459) meets all of the requirements for tours by the State of California.
