We were very happy with Gold Coast Limousines for our wedding in July! Our driver was helpful and accommodating for our elderly guests.

The level of service and customer empathy that Gold Coast provided us was really impressive. Working with Phil was easy. He was always timely in responses and happy to jump on a call or send an email response when we had questions. It was a pleasure working with this company.

We used Gold Coast Limousines for a bachelorette wine tasting day-trip. They exceeded my expectations. Our driver, John, was so friendly and polite and considerate! He always had the bus waiting for us (pulled up so we didn't have to walk far) as we pushed our limits on making it to the next wine appointment on time (getting 14 women together to leave is a nightmare). He ordered sandwiches and picked them up for us. He dealt with me being a little all over the place (organization wise) and was an excellent driver.

At our last wine stop, he brought us the rest of the bottled waters from the van all the way to our picnic table because it was such a hot day and he figured we'd need them (SO THOUGHTFUL). I just could not have asked for a better experience. He just walked the perfect line of being receptive/answering questions, but not overly chatty/inserting himself into our bachelorette girls-weekend experience.

Phil booked our trip and his rate was by far the best of all the transportation groups I quoted. The van was sleek and clean and everyone stayed cool (all the way in the back). Just super grateful for the stress-free experience John helped us achieve. As good as it gets!

We used Gold Coast for a birthday dinner at LaFond Winery with 50 guests. We used three different shuttles with multiple pick-ups each. Gold Coast & Phil were terrific. Phil helped us map out our pick-ups and drop-offs and made the whole process easy. They were on-time, courteous, and our guests were really pleased with the service.

We used Gold Coast for our Santa Ynez wedding (about 50 guests) and it worked out perfectly. We were so impressed with the drivers as they were courteous and professional, and the reservation process was fairly easy. I'd recommend them, for sure.

Had a good experience with this company last Saturday morning. We did an approx 4 hour tour of local wineries that we had previously picked out. Our tour guide was Mark and he was prompt at our hotel waiting for us in a very nice, comfortable, clean & spacious Sedan limo. He was quite knowledgeable about the area and the wineries and easy to talk to. We just told him where we wanted to go and he got us there with no problems. We were able to do 5 different tastings in the allotted time, then head back towards our hotel. Top-notch, no issues, prices pretty comparable, I had an old credit from a previously purchased and expired Travel Zoo, they gave me the paid value with no issues. Overall, I'd give them a good recommendation for anyone needing this service in the area.

I can't say enough about how wonderful Gold Coast was for my weekend wine trip. Used them for 2 days, and had the amazing Mark drive us around for both days. Arrived early, worked late, and was as flexible as we could have possibly asked. He even hopped off the expressway on the way from Paso Robles to Santa Ynez (home base) because we saw whales around the Pismo Beach Pier. Thank you, Mark, for being such a great part of my amazing weekend! We couldn't have done it without you!

I could not have been happier with this service. The owner called me to arrange, after they were referred to me for an event at San Ysidro Ranch. They were professional and prompt. Also, the driver called me with questions on the 1st pick-up and just to let me know he was running on schedule. I would highly recommend them.

You need to use this limo service!! They are the best. I just used them for my daughter's wedding this past weekend. I reserved two limos for the bridal party and a town car for the bride and groom to get them safely to their wedding night destination. All limos were on time and the drivers were just superb!! All quotes and any changes were submitted via email in real-time for confirmation of all the reservations. The staff and team were professional, pleasant and understanding with this Mother of the Bride. You guys were superb!! Thank you so much for making my daughter and son-in-law's day so special.

I did quite a bit of research before booking this service and was I glad I did. Danny is an outstanding driver with impeccable timing! We used the service twice and both times he was on-time, delightful and got us to our destination without a hitch. I would book this service in a minute again. I've used town car services around the country and this one is a gem.

Love, love love this company! It was my friend's birthday, so we did a wine tasting tour in Santa Ynez. Our limo driver, Jonathan, was outstanding! He was knowledgeable, the limos are very up to date, well stocked, and comfy. Did I mention how great Jonathan was??? I would highly recommend them to anyone, and I know my girlfriends would say the same.

I was really impressed with this limo company. I reserved online and called a couple days before to confirm. everyone was very pleasant to work with.

On the day of our service, the driver called to tell me when he was close. When he arrived he took a picture of our group and even had a bottle champagne chilling for us. I really appreciate all the extra effort.

Once we were on our way, I mentioned that we were not sure what to do for lunch. He had a menu and said he could drop us off at the next place and go pick it up for us. This was super helpful and therefore we did not waste any time and got to spend our time wine tasting.

This business also has the most reasonable prices. The limo was clean and spacious for six people. Overall, I would definitely recommend this limo company for their friendly service and great pricing!

Had my birthday celebration this past Friday visiting the wineries in Santa Ynez Valley. Jonathan was amazing as our driver! He picked us up at our hotel in Santa Barbara and was friendly and accommodating from the start. We had a great time drinking champagne and listening to great music in our limo without worrying about having to drive since Jonathan got us to all of our destinations safely! The limo was clean and brand-new, supplied with plenty of glassware, bottle of sparkling wine and water!! Thanks, Jonathan, for being part of my birthday celebration and taking all our crazy, fun pictures! Would definitely use this company again. Request Jonathan as your driver!

I love this business!! They were easy to contact, professional, and fun! We went wine tasting and it was raining that day and the driver made sure to park close to the entrances and avoid puddles for us. Small, but so nice! This is just an honest and easy company to work with. Great prices, and VERY knowledgeable about the area and wineries as well. It's nice to go on a trip and not have to worry about the transportation. I highly recommend this company :) See you again, Gold Coast!

Very smooth process getting info and securing a reservation. Jonathan was very helpful, personable and professional. Our particular vehicle had some mechanical issues a day prior and he called me to notify me, as well as offer a solution at a discounted rate.

Our driver, Edward, was on-time and very courteous. Give them a whirl!

My girlfriend organized a winery limo tour for her 30th birthday. She had to make several changes to our reservations due to some unforeseen circumstances with member of our group. And all the while, Jonathan of Gold Coast Limo's remained patient and accommodating. We couldn't ask for better service.

We arrive for our tour at 2:00pm and were chauffeured in a beautiful black limousine filled with cold champagne, bottled water, and soft drinks. Jonathan took us to three wineries and we were provided with a delicious picnic lunch from Panino.

This was hands down the best wine tour that I've done. What separates Gold Coast Limousines from the rest is the fact that they offer personal and professional service.

We used Gold Coast Limousines for a bachelorette party wine tasting day trip. I spoke with Jonathan on the phone to book the trip and he was very helpful. He gave me winery recommendations that followed a logical route. He also emailed me links to places I could order lunch from and told me the limo driver could pick the lunch up while we were tasting at one of the wineries. A few days before the event the limo driver checked out the pick-up location and was worried about getting the bus up to the place given the windy roads. We talked through it and he was able to find an alternate route and was able to get the bus to the house. The driver on the day of was very accommodating given our large group and made sure we were to each winery on time. This company is great and I'd definitely use them again the next time I go on a wine tasting trip in Santa Ynez. Thanks Gold Coast!

I bought a voucher from travelzoo for a wine tasting limo tour and I was extremely pleased with the whole experience. Our driver Jonathan was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the history of the area and the wineries we visited. We had a wonderful day with a great group of people. I will most definitely use their service again and again!!

We had the best time on our wine tour! Great company, easy booking, but the best was our driver, Jeanine. She was fabulous! She knew all the best places, gave us great recommendations, and kept everything really fun. All six of us enjoyed every minute and will be returning for another tour.

I wanted a fun birthday treat for my boyfriend and so booked a limo with a bunch of our friends. It was such a great idea. We had a blast and a major part of it was the service and charm that Gold Coast provided us with our host driver Rich. He went way beyond just chauffeuring us to the wineries. He provided tips and catered to our experience by adding some fun moments in-between wineries. I suspect we'll repeat this service and will be sure to ask specifically for Rich again.

I purchased a voucher from Travelzoo for a wine tasting for my boyfriend and me. Redeeming the voucher was super easy and convenient. Phil and Jonathan are great! The limo arrived on time. Our driver was Rich. He was very friendly and knowledgeable.

About the Wine Tour:

There was Champagne (Cook's) on ice. and bottled water chilling inside the limo. The limo was clean and spacious.

The first winery we visited was okay The lady pouring the wine was not very friendly and quite unwelcoming. The stop at this winery was much too long for my taste. I wish the time at this winery were cut in half to allow for a visit to another winery.

The following two stops were nice and the time spent was appropriate. The Fess Parker winery is very nice, and I recommend it remain in the itinerary. Box lunches were served at this winery. Lunch was okay (Subway sandwiches, chips and bottled water). We ate outdoors on the patio on a beautiful day with our new-found friends in our limo party. It was great and we had great laughs!

In summary:

I would highly recommend this excursion to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, bridal showers or just for a girl's weekend!

Highlights: The great customer service from Phil, Jonathan and Rich; visit to Fess Parker Winery.

Overall, it was a great experience, with nice people and at agreat price! I would recommend using Gold Coast Limos. Great customer service!

Unbelievably excellent service. Jonathan was the most amazing guide and host for the day. We randomly visited several wineries and partook in tastings at each location. It was some of the most beautiful country I have ever ween in my life - this area is beautiful. Jonathan was early to pick us up, offered to customize our experience as desired (stopping here and there) and made this an optimal experience. I can rave about the service, unbelievably amazing is the best and only way to describe the experience.

I am planning a wine tasting party for a party of 18 - 20 people and found it very difficult to find a limo company that would work with me in the Santa Ynez area. I called Gold Coast Limos and not only did they have vehicles that could accommodate my group, but they were awesome at helping me with the day's itinerary and schedule. I worked with both Phil and Johnathan and they are both extremely nice and helpful. Johnathan spent a good 30 minutes on the phone with me going over my options and then sent me a complete list of places he suggested visiting, along with deli and sandwich ideas along the way. I tend to be a picky consumer, but I am extremely pleased with Gold Coast and would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you for all of your help.

I found out about Gold Coast through a travelzoo special. I planned a weekend in Solvang/Santa Ynez for my boyfriend and I, but this was my first time visiting the area and I had NO IDEA where to start when it came to planning a wine tasting tour. Gold Coast planned the most enjoyable afternoon for us and 6 other folks. We all quickly became friends, as we toured in comfort admiring the gorgeous landscapes, tasting delicious wines (and beers) and sharing stories from home. TJ, our AMAZING driver, was so friendly and sincere. His goal was to make our tour the best it could be by tailoring it to the group's likes and interests...and he definitely succeeded! My boyfriend was extremely impressed with my ability to plan such a fun and memorable weekend...but I know it is all thanks to Gold Coast!

I recently organized a Bachelorette wine tasting weekend for 15 girls. I initially contacted another tour company in Santa Ynez but the individual I was working with was really insulting and unprofessional so I kept looking and found Gold Coast Limousines. What a life saver! I spoke with Phil Conklin and he was just so nice and accommodating. I probably drove him nuts with all my emails, but he was so kind and replied to every single one.

Gold Coast had the most competitive rates and better service than I could have imagined! Before the tour, Phil sent me a menu for a local deli and said that we could place out order beforehand and while we were tasting, our driver would pick up our orders for us. It was fantastic, especially because everyone in our group had very specific diet needs.

On the day of the tasting, Mark arrived at the house we were staying at 10 minutes early, which was perfect because some of the girls that were already ready were able to go into the bus and get an early start with mimosas (provided by Gold Coast Limos!). The HUGE Party Bus came equipped with an iPod dock so we could play our own music, a dancing pole, bottled water, sparkling wine, and orange juice.

Mark was fantastic. Our first tasting took a lot longer than anticipated so he called the next winery where we had an appointment and called to let them know that we were running late. When we got to the next winery, Mark drove over to the cafe to pick up our order while we were at out tasting. By the time our tasting ended, Mark was back with our delicious sandwiches! We found some picnic tables and sat down to have our lunch. Mark was so thoughtful and he even walked over with a bottle of water for each of us.

Mark was really great and a very safe driver. I will definitely use Gold Coast Limousines again when planning a wine tasting trip to Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Santa Barbara area again!

On our way home the next day, my sister and I stopped by another tasting room and met a nice couple who mentioned how they wanted to take their family wine tasting in the area and we jumped at the chance to recommend Gold Coast Limousines! I definitely anticipate using Gold Coast Limos for future wine tasting trips again!

My book club girlfriends and I had a most wonderful outing with Gold Coast Limousines in January! We took the train up from Union Station, Mark met us in the long black limo, cracked open a bottle of champagne and we were off! Gorgeous weather, beautiful scenery, great wines... it doesn't get better than this! Mark was the consummate host, convivial and professional, and Phil in the office was more than patient with our numerous pre-trip cancellations and confusions (hard to get 8 women together anywhere at one time!). Great day out, absolutely recommended! (Also, the train was a good idea... no designated driver!)

FANTASTIC!

I bought a voucher from travelzoo for a wine tasting limo tour and could not have enjoyed it more!! My boyfriend and I go wine tasting all the time, so we are kind of picky about where we go and what we do. Luckily, our driver was super knowledgeable about wine and gave us a lot of great suggestions and tips. He really went above and beyond to make sure we had a good day.

The voucher said that pick up would be at a restaurant in Los Olivos, but the owner of the company offered to have our driver pick us up at our hotel in Solvang, free of charge, to make it easier, which was a much appreciated bonus!!

I would definitely recommend this company. I was very pleasantly surprised, especially because I couldn't really find many reviews.

One of my girlfriends found a great Travelzoo deal for a winery limo tour in the Santa Ynez area. We met Gold Coast Limo's at 10:15am and were ferried around to 4 different wineries, with a picnic lunch at one. Leading up to this FAB day, my friend found communication with Phil to be easy, fast & efficient. The day of we were delighted with Edward, our limo driver, who provided outstanding service - it made the whole day so, so enjoyable. As soon as we arrived back in LA, one of the group realized she'd left a sweater in the limo. She was immediately able to reach Phil and, the next day, provided him with her FedEx number. The sweater was promptly returned as well as the as-promised tracking number as soon as it was sent.

We were a group of 7 and all highly recommend Gold Coast!

Best ever! I am beyond satisfied with Gold Coast! I was looking for a cool 21st birthday surprise for my brother and Gold Coast did it above and beyond.

- First- I called a couple different limo/party bus places to get price quotes - Gold Coast was the best price and the most flexible. They didn't mind coming at the half hour and didn't have a time minimum during the week.

- Second - I was probably a very annoying customer, but Jonathan over the phone was SUPER accommodating. I swear I called almost everyday to change something - times, days, this and that, and every time he was so friendly!

-Third- I don't live in the same area as my brother so I didn't go on the bus, but he was super surprised and said this was the most fun he had ever had. Judging from the pictures it looks like everyone had an absolute blast. They couldn't stop talking about how cool their driver was too! He came on time and really added to the whole experience!

My brother said the bus itself was awesome, striped pole and champagne included! And from the pictures I saw it looks like they had a lot of fun using the pole! I wouldn't call any other place and can't wait to visit my brother and go wine tasting!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

I couldn't be happier with Godl Coast Limousines. I planned a party for my husband's 40th birthday celebration to go to Santa Ynez wine tasting for the day with 21 of our closest family and friends. As soon as we met the limo at 9:30am, the limo driver, Fran, was friendly, accommodating and set the tone for the entire day. By the end of the day, everyone was so happy, had THE BEST time in the party bus and RAVED about how amazing the limo driver and service was. I can't wait for our next trip, and when it does happen, I will definitely be using Gold Coast again!!
