Very fun experience. Nate and Fred were excellent. Took the time to tell us about the places and also took great pictures of us so we didn’t have to mess with all posing. Great guys. You do go to three wineries but one of them is the start/end winery so you only travel on sidecar to two of them. All good though because all wineries were excellent. Great experience. Will be back.

This day trip was awesome, I really enjoyed myself and everyone who come along. Tony our tour guide was sooooooo awesome and funny 😁. Our driver Carlos was awesome as well 😁. I definitely want to do it all over again 😀

This was a really fun activity for my husband and me. Clues were interesting, fun, and not too difficult. Took about an hour and a half, but we did get sidetracked into one of the stores:)Definitely recommend!

We enjoyed the Temecula Scavenger Hunt. We learned about the history of the town and saw sights we otherwise would have missed. Fun!

Very informative and easy to use. First class support 👍. I can only recommend.
