Tour to start in Santa Barbara this year. Taking the twisties up the mountain to Cold Springs Tavern for lunch, stop in Los Olivos for a beer and or wine. More twisty roads to San Luis Obispo to the hotel. Working on a group night tour of Hearst Castel.
Stay tuned for more updates on hotel location , Rick is working on getting the group rate.
After researching many hotels in the area and not getting a response for group rates . We have decided for everyone to be on their own in San Simeon Ca, just minutes away from Hearst Castle. Rick, Gene and I will be staying at the Sands by The Sea in San Simeon.
We are very close to securing a night tour of Hearst Castle which will be amazing !
More info to come
Everything is a go for the Wine tour. Prior hotel reservations in San Simeon are a must . The last I heard was that the hotel we booked at is sold out.
We all did a group buy of tickets for the Hearst Castle night tour
The start location is Earl Warren Show Grounds 3400 Calle Real , Santa Barbara this year . Departing at 10:15 am
