Planning a wine tour can be time consuming, especially for first timers. Where do you go? What do the wineries offer? How are you going to get to each one? Who’s going to drive if everyone is drinking? No one goes to wine country without partaking in the wine tasting festivities! Therefore a tour guide and designated driver are definitely needed. Having a limousine company pick you up and take you is the best and safest way to tour wine country. Companies, such as Black Tie Transportation, provide customers with chauffeurs that can guide you on your wine tour all with the comfort of not having to drive yourself. However, it is important to ask questions so that you know the company you are looking at is right for you. These questions will really help you find the best company and lead on the path to a great wine tour.
- What makes your company different from any other limo company? This is a great question so that you can see the things that they have to offer. Every company should be able to have a great reply to this question or you may need to look elsewhere. It’s important to find out the things that set certain companies apart from others.
- Are tasting and tour fees included? Most transportation companies do not include tasting and tour fees. They want to leave it up to you so that way you can choose the group of tasting you would like to partake in at your own ease. Some, however, do include this fee in their package.
- I’ve never been to wine country, can you pick the best wineries for me? This is important because you will automatically be able to tell if a transportation company is knowledgeable of wine country. A knowledgeable company should know of the best wineries in the area and should be able to recommend some for you based off of your needs. San Francisco Bay Area’s Black Tie Transportation sets the example by having a list of the popular go-to wineries for anyone that has never been.
- Can I bring my children? Every winery is different. Be sure to let the transportation company know that you will be bringing children, that way they can give you a list of wineries that allow children.
These are just some of the questions you may have for your limo company. If you have anymore, don’t be afraid to ask and know that great quality companies will be able to assist you with whatever question or concern you may have! Going on a wine tour is a one of a kind experience and it is your job to make sure that you are picking the right company to take you on the wine tour.
