Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
Can we choose which wineries we want to visit?
Absolutely. If you know where you want to go we are happy to take you there. We're also here to help you plan so let us know if you have any questions or would like suggestions on creating an itinerary.
What if we want to visit a combination or wineries, distilleries, cideries, or breweries?
We've had a great response mixing-and-matching tasting room visits so just let us know where you'd like to go.
How are tasting reservations handled?
Our local wineries are very popular and some are very small, so they require reservations for groups of 6 or more. We can offer this as part of our services to you with at least two weeks notice or you can make the reservations on your own.
Can we drink on the bus?
You are allowed to drink alcoholic beverages that you purchased at the brewery, winery, or cidery but we do not allow outside alcohol to be consumed on the bus! We supply the coolers, ice, cups, bottle openers and wine openers for you. Liquor is not permitted, non-alcoholic drinks are encouraged.
How many people can fit on your bus?
Our Large buses are very spacious for 15 passengers and our XL Bus can hold up to 20. Please note that we have bench seating, so that could be a perfect amount, or a tight fit, depending on your group!
Can we go for longer than four hours?
Custom tours are as fun for us as they are for you, and as long as the schedule allows it, we're happy to extend your tour to visit a few more tasting rooms, take time for a dining break, or get to those out-of-the-way spots! Only $124 (L) or $164 (XL) for each additional hour.
What's included in a tour?
We provide a dedicated driver/guide, our beautiful limo-bus, bottled water, individually-wrapped snacks (pretzels, chips, etc.) and keep our prices low so you can drink at your discretion.
Can we get a guided tour of the wineries we visit?
We would be happy to contact the winery on your behalf to inquire about tours of their facility. Please note that requests will be subject to availability so make a note in your reservation in order for us to reach out to them asap.
Where do you pick up from?
We offer free local pick up and drop-off anywhere within 20 miles of our headquarters near downtown SLO! For addresses further away we charge a small one time fee to help cover additional fuel and labor costs: Each additional 10 miles is only $25.
Are children or minors allowed?
We are happy to cater to all ages and some wineries are licensed to allow minors on their premises. Let us help you put together a kid-friendly itinerary for your whole group. Note: We do not have belts to accommodate car seats. State Laws regarding underage drinking still apply.
Are we allowed to get super wasted and be rude?
No, please don't do that.
