What to expect

Your tour guide/driver will pick you up between 7:00 – 7:45 in the morning, and will engage you with fascinating tidbits about local history and point out interesting landmarks as you enjoy your drive over the pristine and rugged Santa Lucia Mountains. Along the way you’ll take in beautiful views of the fog blanketed mountain peaks and the rocky shoreline of the Pacific Ocean as we make our way to William Randolph Hearst’s extravagant vacation home on the ‘Enchanted Hill’.

At the Castle, you’ll pick up your tickets and quickly begin your guided Grand Rooms Tour, allowing you to beat the crowds and enjoy the tranquility and splendor of the Castle as Hearst and his guests would have.

On the tour, you’ll visit Hearst’s opulent social rooms on the ground floor of the castle 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 socializing all through the night.

The guided portion of the tour will last approximately 1-hour, after which you will have time to stroll through the gardens and around the Neptune and Roman pools before taking the shuttle back to the visitor’s center, where we’ll pick you up to continue on our adventure!

After departing the Castle, we’ll make our way to the charming seaside town of Cambria, where 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.

After a satisfying lunch, you’ll enjoy breathtaking views as we make our way to three small-to-medium sized charming, family friendly wineries in either Paso Robles or San Luis Obispo’s Edna Valley. Sit back and relish each winery as they offer their own distinctive blend of friendly faces, delightful surroundings and enchanting local wines.
