Frequently Asked Questions


Temecula Valley Cable Car Wine Tours FAQs 1
Do I Need Reservations?

Yes, reservations are a must. You can book on our website or contact us at (951) 302-5981.

What's the difference between a regular and sober ticket?

A regular ticket is the full experience and a sober ticket is intended for the designated driver or non-drinkers. It allows them to tag along, but there will be no opportunity for them to drink during the tour. The sober ticket includes transportation only and can only be purchased in limited quantity with regular tickets. Sober guests must still be 21+.

How Long Is The Tour?
We typically begin our wine tours around 11:00am from our office/tasting room and typically end around 4:30pm.


If you are using our optional pick up/drop off service, we will let you know your pickup window the day before you travel. Pickups start around 10:00am.
Is Gratuity Included In The Tour Price?

Not for our public tours, gratuity is at your discretion and gracefully accepted by your tour guide for a job-well-done. A mandatory service charge is, however, added to the tour price for large groups, charters, special and private tours.

What If I Need To Cancel My Tour, Am I Charged For The Tour?

Guests have the opportunity to purchase assurance for their tickets at booking. Anyone with assurance may cancel up to 48 hours in advance of the tour to receive a refund back onto their credit card minus the assurance fee.

Any bookings without assurance, all tickets sold are non-refundable, but a credit voucher will be issued for your ticket price with 48-hour notice.

What If I Don't Stay Overnight At a Temecula Hotel, Where Do I Meet?
