Amazing experience!
, Sep 2021
Our tour guide Sandy has so much knowledge about history in the area. It was very informative. She went extra mile when she’s not supposed to. She answered our questions well. We’re so happy and very satisfied. We had a great time.

Bob was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We have visited Santa Barbara many times, but now we have learned so much about its history. The food stops were wonderful and we plan on returning to all of them.

Even though I live in Santa Barbara I enjoyed everything about this Tour. Manuel told our group of seven interesting facts about the history-an excellent guide and a well planned tour.
