Gratuity for the wait staff at the winery is not included.
More

* A traveler said: "This was one of the best ways to spend a day of our lives that I could imagine. The Muir Woods were gorgeous and our driver/guide, Phil, made sure to get us there before the big tour busses arrived. So we were actually able to enjoy some of the quiet beauty before all of the talkative groups arrived with their voices echoing through the valley. The gourmet lunch with wine at Kendall-Jackson vineyards was a visual and tasting delight. The wines are not the ones you can find in the stores, but their special wines you can only get at the winery. The grounds are gorgeous with all the flowers and vegetables that they use on the property and the meals. A great bonus, that we have never seen at any other winery, is a garden with samples of the many different types of wine grapes popular around the world and you can pick and taste them from the vine. Phil was informative, fun, and everyone on the van made friends quickly. We had our own table at the winery and it was very difficult to leave. Phil’s historical tidbits along the way were just right, and he let us pick our own play lists. What a day!"

San Diego Taco Crawl - A Curated Tour of San Diego's Best Tacos - Public Tour
From
$101.54
Price varies by group size
Mexico's best tacos (and thus the best tacos in the world!) are found just over the border from San Diego, in Tijuana and Ensenada, where we also lead amazing street food tours... But if you don't have your passport, or you just don't have time to devote a day to explore the vibrant culinary scene south of the border, and you are interested eating some of the best tacos found outside of Mexico, this is your tour! Mexicans living in San Diego can't always make it over the border to enjoy their beloved street tacos. We'll take you to where they eat in San Diego. At these hole-in-the wall joints and taco trucks, you're more likely to hear Spanish spoken over English, but don't worry, our expert bilingual gastroguides will take care of the translating for you! And while you'll spend most of the day getting down and dirty with San Diego's best street tacos (you eat tacos with your hands!), we'll end at an upscale gourmet taco bar that also serves Baja microbrews and craft cocktails.
