Tour description provided by Viator

This door to door, hop-on, hop-off wine tasting tour service lets you set your pace and create your own wine tasting itinerary in Paso Robles Wine Country. The approximately 5-hour service picks you up at your accommodations and start you on their loops. They service over 60 wineries in the region and you just pick and choose where you want to “hop on” and “hop off” all day long.  When you decide to "hop off" your driver walks you in, introduces you to the staff who will conduct your tasting.  S/he will return in approximately 40 minutes, come into the tasting room, let you know s/he is back and if you're ready to go you just "hop on" and proceed to the next winery of your choice. If you are enjoying yourself, you can stay for another approximately 40minutes, or longer. It's your choice!
Cambria/San Simeon pickups are scheduled for 10:30-11:00am, picked up first and returned last. Your driver will call between 9:30-10:00 on the morning of service with your specific time. Returns begin around 4pm from your last winery. You should visit 4-5 wineries, depending on how long you stay at each winery and lunch plans. When you “hop off” your driver walks you in and introduces you to the tasting room staff who will guide you through your tasting experience.  S/he returns in approx. 40mins, lets you know s/he is back, and if ready, you “hop on” and proceed your next chosen winery. If you are enjoying yourself, or not ready to go, they'll return. Typically you are shuttled directly between wineries throughout the day, so it almost feels like a private tour. Occasionally other customers may need to be picked up along the way, but, it's not like a city bus, stopping at every stop. They “hop-scotch” around the wineries.They service 70+ premier Paso Robles wineries, between the East side, West side & Downtown. The full list is available on the "Wineries" page on their website. Tasting fees vary at each winery. Note: due to poor traffic conditions, both sides for the same day are not possible.Gratuity is not included in your total but is greatly appreciated for your driver. 18% would be a standard amount. They ask that you pay the driver the gratuity directly if you are pleased with the service, as it is a considerable portion of their pay.If choosing the tour with lunch, include your order (Option #/Pasta or Salad) in the "additional info" section:#1-Lg.
