Scott was our guide- he was a biker through and through but he paced with us and incorporated a great history of the area along the way. We really enjoyed the food stops as well as seeing the local agriculture, ponies and stories of the towns. Highly recommend this company to anyone wanting a nice balance of biking along with the local vibe.

This is a must. We had the best time and Chris was a fabulous host and guide. The tastings were great and this was one of the highlights of our holiday.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our bike ride through the beautiful towns of Solvang, Ballard, and Los Olivos. Our tour guide Scott was knowledgeable, incredibly friendly, and a joy to spend the afternoon with. The bike shop also made it super convenient for us to make purchases along our route as they sent someone to retrieve our local delights (🍷 🧁).

Do NOT book this excursion, it is completely misleading. We biked on a very busy road with cars/trucks in both directions most of the duration. The olive oil tasting place was closed which our tour guide was surprised about and did not offer anything else for us to do. The wine tasting place had a man pouring for us that was missing more teeth than he actually had. The bathroom at this tasting room was a portable out house. This was not first class service and lacked in so many ways. Waste of money.

Mine was amazing!!! He was so kind and friendly. We had great conversation! The tour was so worth it! It’s a lot of manual labor but so worth it when you get to Los Olivos! Mike set up all our visits for us and made sure we got the most out of our tour!! Such a great day!!

Everyone ask for Hans. He is a legend and a super nice guy. Went at the speed we wanted and took us to a lovely Olive pile tasting place highly recommend. The wine tasting was meh, not the tours fault, we went on a Monday and I guess the wine place is slow so had a kid serving who clearly didn’t want to be there and gave no insite to the wine, no info, and really couldn’t be bothered that we were there BUT I’m told that’s not the norm at all. So I would still go again. The bike ride was great, the bikes are easy to use and super light loved all of it would totally do it again :) ASK FOR HANS! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Our group of 8 had an incredible time biking from Solvang to Neverland Ranch and back, including stops for olive oill tasting, wine tasting, and an amazing lunch. Our guides, Scott and Chris, were so informative about the history of the area and extremely accommodating to our varying needs, including swapping out a standard bike for an e-bike for us mid-trip (Note: if you're uncertain about your ability to sweat out a long ride, don't feel any shame in opting for an e-bike, particularly in the summer heat). Many of us were skeptical about a bike tour in the midst of a 3-day wine trip, but we has such a great experience that this will be a staple on our annual trips going forward. And again, ask for Scott and Chris...they take such pride in making you have fun. You won't be disappointed!!!!

Tour was wonderful! Guide was knowledgable, personable and fun to be around. We learned great history of the valley; bikes were nice, and the route was absolutely beautiful! The ride was about 22 miles in total, and included an olive oil tasting, delicious catered lunch, and wine tasting. Would 100% recommend.

My friend and I had a wonderful 3 1/2 hour bike tour with our guide Amy. Very knowledgable of the area and very personable. Tailored the tour to our needs. Pleasant experience all around.

Jenny M

Did a half day bike tour with lunch at the Beckman Vineyard. It was absolutely perfect. Our guide, Scott, was informative, fun, and a joy to be around. The views were unreal and it was a fun but challenging ride. Truly the perfect way to spend the day. Neil (another guide) is also great. Can’t recommend it enough!
