What to expect

On this fascinating tour through the beautiful Santa Lucia Mountains, your tour guide and driver will engage you with fascinating tidbits about local history and point out interesting landmarks as you take in views of the fog blanketed peaks and the rocky shoreline of the Pacific Ocean on the way to William Randolph Hearst’s extravagant vacation home on the ‘Enchanted Hill’.

Once here you will take your guided tour of this stunning castle, enjoying the Grand Rooms and allowing you to enjoy the splendor as Hearst and his guests would have. On the tour, you’ll visit the opulent social rooms where each evening W.R. Hearst would gather his guests – consisting of the Hollywood elite of the time, influential politicians, famous authors and artists, and other notable figures – for lavish meals and late-night socializing.

Having revelled in the splendor, you can stroll through the gardens and around the Neptune and Roman pools before taking the shuttle back to the visitor’s center, where you'll be picked up to continue onwards to the charming seaside town of Cambria. Here you’ll have time to walk through the historic East Village, do some boutique and antique shopping, as well as grab a relaxed lunch at one of the many excellent cafes and restaurants. Then it's time to sit back and relax, enjoying breathtaking views as you make your way to two charming, family friendly wineries on the west side of Paso Robles Wine Country. Sit back and savor each winery as they offer their own distinctive blend of enchanting wines, friendly locals and authentic countryside vistas.

Finally, you'll finish the day in Paso Roble's hippest tasting destination – Tin City. This industrial estate boasts some of the most innovative boutique producers in the area and includes the option to taste small-batch wines, beers, cider, distilled spirits, sheeps’ milk ice cream, pasta and more.
