Lunch that was provided was good and the last winery we went to was excellent "Lorimar".

The driver was totally boring and not interactive at all. It would have been nice to hear a little history of the wine country & the wineries we went to. He was more interested in his tip then anything. He was also 25 min late. I will not take this one again. I've taken other tours & they were GREAT.

Trolly ran late picking us up, then broke down at the first winery and they had to send another. Felt like every stop we were rushed to "Stay on schedule". No a/c in the front -only in the back.

Made the reservation, then someone called me back and said oh you dont really have a reservation. Told them I had already made non refundable hotel and they had to get it worked out.

Lorimar and Bella Vino were nice wineries. The other two were just barely ok. The place where we had the luncheon were not prepared for us...it was a very cool day and they sat us outside to eat.

The trolley was very uncomfortable...........a van or shuttle would have been much better.

Calvin was an excellent driver and guide.

I enjoyed being introduced to new places in temecula and trying some good beers

When we were picked up we were first taken to a hot dog shoppe- where we were left for 90-120 minutes (to eat a hot dog- no one needs that long). Our driver left to go transport a wedding. So over 2 hours after the tour started we arrived at our first brewery, where it never seemed like we had that much time to actually have our beers. It was really diapointing to purchase a brew tour and have to wait 2 hours for it to start- at a hot dog shop- with nothing to do. I am a person that tends to see the positives in situations, and this was bad. Everyone on the tour was really upset. At least take us somewhere where we could entertain ourselves for the time the company would leave us. Also, a few days before the tour, they pushed back the start time- not sure why as that clearly lead them to a majoy conflict. This was very disappointing.
