Average 5.00 out of 5 stars based on 3 verified reviews from Cool Destinations and TripAdvisor.
This was an amazing trip! So glad I went with this. William is such an amazing guide with a background in fine dining so he really knew his stuff. The lunch that was prepared was so delicious, and I'm a bit of a food snob.
One of my favorite parts of the ride was getting to see the Lavender farm. the owner of the farm gave us brief description of her operation and then we had the opportunity to purchase some items made from lavender grown there. There was also a nice little doggo and kitty welcome committee.
The ride itself was quite pleasant and it is full of opportunities to stop riding when you need to. We started the ride in Los Olivos, rode to the Lavender Farm, then onto Solvang. Everyone in our group opted to stop riding in Solvang so he gave us an hour to explore the town before he came back with the van to take us off to the vineyards. Had we wanted to we could have ridden from Solvang to the first vineyard. Overall it came out to be a rather easy ride with plenty of stops along the way. Highly recommend!
This bike tour was amazing! William was so accommodating for us beginner bike riders and he chose the most beautiful spots. He also made us a delicious lunch that we enjoyed in a beautiful courtyard. I have already recommended this tour to a friend who is planning a wedding in SB next year!!
