As of October 1, 2021:COVID-19 Santa Barbara restrictions require everyone to wear masks indoors when they are not consuming food or alcohol.


We are taking as many precautions as we can to ensure that our guests, guides, food partners and everyone stay as safe as possible while providing a wonderful tour experience. If you sign up for a regular downtown food tour, you may be in a small group with other people. If you are uncomfortable, please consider booking a private tour for your group.

We are excited to be touring. Things are still looking a little different than before:

  • Group sizes still remain smaller (there are exceptions for private events)
  • If you are trying to book on a busy day, we MAY be able to offer an additional start time, if the tour is booked and you are interested in an alternative time, please email [email protected]
  • If you’d like a private tour, please email [email protected]
  • Basically, if you have any questions, please email [email protected]
  • Food Allergies and aversions – we are trying to accommodate as best we can, but we may not be able to accommodate all of them at every stop, especially if we don’t know about them in advance. If you have allergies or aversions please let us know as soon as possible.
  • Guides will have masks, but will probably not wear them outdoors. They will still try and remain socially distancing as much as possible, while also offering a wonderful tasting and touring experience.

Because things are changing so rapidly:

If your tour is cancelled , we will do everything we can to reschedule you to a later date or issue a gift certificate.

Meeting info MIGHT change, if it does change we will send an email and/or a text and call. If you have any questions email or text [email protected] 805.633.0707

Precautions & Protocols:

  • If you or someone in your party isn’t feeling well, please do not come on the tour and email, text or call to let us know.
  • If one of our guides is not feeling 100%, they will not be leading tours.

What you need:

  • Party pants – you must wear party pants, dress, shorts, or skirt
  • Appetite
  • Water bottle (if you want)
  • Hand Sanitizer (guides will also be equipped with hand sanitizer and can point you in the direction of the bathrooms to wash with soap and water)
