We planned a small group tour for my girlfriends birthday on Sunday March 13, 2011 and it worked out great! First of all, visiting 4 wineries with lunch included for only $85 is a great deal, but to top it off, our driver, Debbie was an awesome host and was a lot of fun. She took us to 4 wineries in about a 4 1/2 hour period and was very funny, laid back, and because our group was so small we were not given any strict time restrictions at each winery and we even got our say into which vineyards we visited! Debbie took photos of our group whenever we wanted and even came up with some great group shots using the tour bus as a prop! She assigned us each a number and then kept track off our purchases and free tasting glasses we got at each winery so when we arrived back at our hotel it was organized and ready for us!
The food ordered from a place called "Cosi" was fantastic (Tandoor Chicken flatbread sandwich was YUM!) and was delivered at the perfect time and we were able to enjoy the food on the patio at the 3rd winery. Even the birthday girl was given a mini chocolate cupcake!
My favorite part comes the next day when I realized I left my sunglasses on the tour bus - my girlfried called Debbie and she immediately said "Yes, I have them!"...we decided to visit two other wineries the next day before we headed home and Debbie volunteered to meet us at one to hand deliver the forgotten sunglasses! I was so grateful (They were $150 D&G glasses afterall!). Now that is customer service well beyond anyones expectations!
So what it comes down to is this... you'd be crazy not to take this tour! You should probably consider them each and every time you go to Temecula for wine tasting! We will definitely be going again!
We wanted to tell you that our hostess and driver, Yvonne, was wonderful. We enjoyed spending time with her and she was so great to allow us to stop and take photos. She made the tour very interesting and we were thrilled to share the bus with only one other couple. Lunch was delicious and our weather was perfect. However, we do have one suggestion which could improve future wine tastings. We felt it would have been nicer if the winery or the bus company would have had cheese and crackers to eat between tastings. Brad and I would have paid extra to have a plate of cheese and crackers once boarding back onto the bus. By the third winery, I honestly couldn't tell which wines I preferred!
Yvonne asked us to pose by the limo bus and we though we would share this silly picture of us having fun in the moment. We would definitely tour with your company again.

Comments : Our tour was great from the minute we got on the bus until we got back to our hotel! We loved everything about the tour. Tommy picked us up right on time, he was knowledgeable about the area and the wineries, great about reminding us to take pictures (because we are really bad about that) and all around great company! The wineries were all great and not having to worry about carrying all of our stuff made for an even more relaxing day! Lunch was absolutely delicious and was enjoyed with a great view.
Keep up the good work and we'll definitely be back!
We really enjoyed our tour. Tommy was a great tour guide. This was our first trip to Temecula & our first wine tour. We will surely recommend your tour to others.
Thank you & aloha
Hi Mike and Debbie,
We had a fabulous time on the winery tour and a great time in Temecula. Yvonne and Steven do a great job! We've told lots of folks about what a great time we had! It was a much needed break from Bullhead City! If there is somewhere we can post a review and some of our pictures please let us know! Unfortunately, we drank all the wine we bought but we sure had fun reminiscing while we drank it out of our souvenir glasses! Michael thought he was doing the tour for me and he ended up having just as much fun as I did. We are headed back to Indianapolis soon but we hope to do the tour again someday. In case anybody asks you for hotel recommendations, we loved Temecula Creek Inn. It was so relaxing and the restaurant had great food and a nice lodge type atmosphere and substantially less expensive than some of the other hotels and the casino. It was a pleasure meeting you both and now I know why my dad speaks so highly of you!Warm Regards,
Thank you. We had a great time and will be back next year for sure if not before then.
I have recommended you to a few of my friends and they will see you soon!
Thanks so much Debbie. We had an absolute blast and Yvonne and Steven were great! I will definitely be coming back for another wine tour through you again.
We had an absolutely AMAZING time!! It was such a pleasure spending the day with Tommy and being drove all over Temecula. It was our first trip out there, and it definitely won't be last! I will definitely recommend TV Cable Car Wine Tours to everyone I know. I put a positive review on Yelp for you guys. Hope that shows my appreciation :)
Thank you very much we had such a great time.. I will be getting in touch with you soon to book a tour with some other friends.
Ron and Dora
Thank you for the note, we had a fantastic time! If there is a rugby match in Temecula next year them we will be back and will be sure to contact you.
We had such a wonderful experience. Yvonne was absolutely amazing!! We will be back and with more friends. Thank you!
We want to thank you and Yvonne as well! She was very warm, friendly, and professional! We all had a great time and will definitely book again w/your company.
Thank you for such a fun experience!
Theresa and I had a fantastic time and it exceeded our expectations. I have already recommended your tour to my friends. Thanks for a great time and we hope to do it again.
Michael and Theresa
We had a great time--if we are back in the area we will make another trip! Wally and Mike were exceptional!! Thanks!
Marge & Tom Poot
We had an amazing time on the tour. Wally and Mike are great! Thank you for coordinating everything and making changes as people dropped out and added into our party. We will definitely call Temecula Cable Car next time we're in the area and recommend your company to friends and family.

Comments : Wow our group of 21 people for my 50th birthday bash had a blast. Mike our Driver was awesome and Wally didn't miss a beat. What customer service. Wally gave us info on each winery and made sure we were taken care of at each stop. Our souvenir wine glasses were carefully wrapped at each stop and any thing we pruchased was placed in a bag with our number on it and given to us at the end of the tour.
Lunch was fabulous and offered breathtaking views for awesome picture taking. Everyone had a blast and I would recommend them to all who visit Temecula wine country. Great job guys. Thank you for making this 50th birthday one to look back on and smile. Simply Awesome !
Hi Temecula Valley Cable Car Wine Tour Co.,
Thank you for a wonderful day last Sat! Alex and I had the best time. It was relaxing, fun, and informative! We would definitely love to do it again sometime- possibly when my brother and sister-in-law come to visit.
Chris and Debbie made the day so fun and relaxing. They really took great care of us and they also made the day a lot of fun.
We will be doing the wine tour again! Thanks for everything!
Oh my gosh Debbie we had the BEST time! We were definitely planning to have a blast but the trip was enhanced from when we were first picked up to when we were dropped off by the great level of service we received from everyone at the Temecula Cable Car Wine Tours. We were surprised by how organized the tour was and how much that added to our perfect day of celebrating! Mike and Wally were AWESOME! Wally gave us an overview of the day which helped us a lot and they both took such good care of us. The lunch was fabulous and all of the wineries were great! I have a new favorite, rasberry sparkling wine! I will recommend you company in a heartbeat and we decided that we would make this a yearly birthday trip! We will see you next September and thanks for all of your help!
Hi, Debbie and Chris: Just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed our Temecula Wineries tour with you! The weather was fantastic and you both took excellent care of us. We could have gone to Napa, spent a lot of money but I don't think we'd have had as good a time as we did with you. Keep up the good work. We'll definitely be back sometime in the future. Take care.
Thank you for a wonderful time. Gabe and I had a blast and are looking forward to another wine tasting in the near future!
Yvonne was wonderful and she made the tour even better with her knowledge of the area and with her sense of humor! She is a great guide and I will highly recommend her!
Thanks again and have a wonderful day!
I can't begin to tell you guys how much fun we had, Troy Desteen travis and Courtney surprised Trent, he had no clue they were coming! So that made things exciting! But I have told at least 5 people how wonderful your tour was. We had an amazing time, and definitely will use you guys again.
Thank you so very much
That was one of the most fun things we ever done. Thank you so very much for making Caseys birthday and our overall experience a great one!
Good Afternoon To all,
I would like to start off by thanking Temecula Cable Car for an fantastic Wine Tasting experience this beautiful June 26th. I hope everyone enjoyed todays different locations as much as I did. Attached are pictures from todays extravaganza.
We had such a great time. Mike and Wally were so awesome! Steph H. (Bride to be) enjoyed herself so much!!! Thank you for being so accommodating! You are all so wonderful and we will definitely be coming to Temecula Cable Car Wine Tours for our next event!!
Thanks again so much!
We had a fantastic time on the cable car wine tour. It was a perfect day and we all really enjoyed it. Both Mike and Wally were great. I would definately recommend your company to anyone wanting to do a wine tour in Temecula. I am so glad I opted for the cable car, it was awesome!!
Thank you so much!
We had a fantastic time, you were great. We've been telling everyone about the experience... can't wait to come back!
Thank you Debbie. Wally was very friendly and accomodating. Mike let me jump in the driver seat to take some pictures. Overall, a great experience! I posted pictures on Facebook and have had several friends asking for info on the tour. My Hanh and I are also planning to bring her side of the family back in August! I will let you know. Thanks Debbie!
Thank you for the awesome experience. Me and Jaselle had a wonderful time. Oscar was a great host and we will definately be coming back. Were going to try and get a big group of friends next time. Thank you again!
We had a great time on our tour. It was probably one of our favorite things of our week in San Diego. Not sure how much you communicate with the wineries about their servers, but Jennifer at South Coast was over and beyond anything we ever expected. I have been to tastings before here locally and never seen anything like that before. Besides being quite entertaining, she was great at reading not only Janessa and I, but the others around us as to what we would like. Janessa hasn't had much experience with tastings, so really didn't know what she would like or what to even try and Jennifer walked her through it every step of the way. Within two tastes, she just started grabbing things she knew Janessa would like and seemed to be dead on. If it hadn't been for the hour drive back to San Diego and and reservations for dinner on the last night in town, I think we would have gone back to South Coast we had such a good time there.
Feel free to pass this on to any contacts you may have at South Coast if you want. If they don't already know, they should be told what a good person they have on their staff. Anyway, thanks again to you, Wally, and Mike for your hospitality. We will definitely recommend you to anyone that travels your way.

Comments : Debbie and Mike were great and offered a very personal tour. We were the only two at first to book and then luckily five others signed up for our mid-week get-away to wine country. We were too small of a group for the Cable Car, but the limo/caravan was great. We even got to see and walk around the Cable Car en route. The whole experience was exceptional from the moment we were picked up at our hotel. We visited four wineries with a catered lunch at the third winery. We were delivered at our hotel door after about 4-1/2 hours of incredible enjoyment. The personal touch was very special and makes us anxious to plan our next get-away w/Temecula Cable Car Wine Tours
Thank you Debbie! We had the best time and can't wait to come back for another tour!!!
Take care and see you soon!
