Norma, our tour guide was a joy! This is our second year to take advantage of this Travelzoo offer and visit Rideau. It was just as much fun this time around and the wines are great.

The property and history of the vineyard. They are so accommodating. We arrived right at the start of the tour and they still took up even though we didn't have a reservation. Norma was the guide and she's from Ireland, so with her accent, I felt like we were in Europe.

Great wine lessons, history of the house and it belongs as one of Santa Barbara historical property.

Exceeded my expectations! Wonderful experience.
