Patsy F Fabulous trip

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

Michelle W Thank you SCE for a great time!

Matty was our tour guide for a wine tour and it was awesome! He picked fantastic wineries and he had great relationships with everyone. So much fun and I will definitely be using SCE again.

Fantastic Wine Tour

We celebrated an early Christmas party today with the Santa Cruz Experience and it was amazing! Absolutely beautiful wineries. We can't thank you enough for a truly memorable celebration.

We had an amazing day visiting three wineries, we were lucky to have Matt as our tour guide and driver. We would highly recommend going on this tour and in particular having Matt as your guide.

Elizabeth J profile photo Perfect Wine Tasting Tour

We couldn't have asked for a better host for the day. I highly recommend this experience - if I ever get back to Santa Cruz I will definitely do the tour again, but will also request Matt and ask him to take us around to some of the other places we didn't get a chance to visit.

Beautiful

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