Wine Tasting in DC

Whether you’re just visiting Washington DC for a weekend, or you are a resident, you really owe it to yourself to see as much as you can while you’re there.  Obviously there’s no shortage of national monuments and buildings to see, but perhaps after a day or two of that, you’ll be interested in something a little different.

We’re talking about wine tasting tours here.  Maybe that’s not something that immediately comes to mind when you’re in DC, but it really should be, as there are some outstanding wineries in the area, such as Boxwood Winery, Barrel Oak Winery, and RdV Vineyards, to name just a few.  You’ll find these and more on the Washingtonian website, and US News.

So, once you’ve decide on which ones you want to visit, you might want to consider alternatives to driving yourself, since that’s not exactly the most convenient thing to do in a town like DC, where parking is expensive, traffic is heavy, and navigation to the various wineries can be daunting.

Since this is probably not something you’re going to get the chance to do very often, why not make your wine tasting that much better, relaxing and safer by booking a luxury sedan, SUV or coach for your day out?  No set destinations – it’s up to you.  Visit the locations you want to, or let our experienced chauffeurs help in that regard.  Then essentially sit back and enjoy the ride.  It’s your car, your day, your decision.

Large group or small, we have a wide variety of luxury vehicles in our fleet. Sip a glass of wine while cruising through beautiful wine country.  No parking hassles, no navigation planning.  Just you, some soft music, the scenery, and the wine.

If this sounds like something you’d like to try, give us a call, check out our website, or submit a free limo price quote request.  The start your DC wine tour adventure to remember.

Thanks for reading.  Enjoy the wine!

 

Executives Deserve Better

Ask anyone you know what occasions they think of when they hear the word limousine, or limo, and they will probably respond; wedding, prom, bachelor party, or a night on the town.  Yes, those are all common uses for a limousine, but one use is frequently overlooked, that of corporate and executive travel.

corporate-limos

Airport transfers, transportation to and from meetings, or maybe taking the office staff out for dinner after a particularly good week.  All the typical limousines that are available for the wedding/party clients are also available for executives.  And they don’t all have to have flashing neon lights and ear blasting sound systems.  Understated Lincoln Town Cars or Lincoln MKTs are generally preferred over a big flashy super stretch limo when it comes to corporate travel.  And a party bus can be configured for corporate use too, which could come in handy for say a corporate weekend retreat.

And we mentioned airport transportation.  That’s a very popular use of limousines.  Why take a stinky taxi when you can travel in style and comfort in a luxury sedan or executive SUV?  It sure beats those “amateur car services’ where you never know what or who you’ll get.  With us you’ll get a professional chauffeur who knows where he’s going, knows how to keep a low profile, and knows how to give you the best trip possible.

If this sounds good to you, take a look at our website where you can see our DC limousine fleet to help you figure out what vehicles would work for you.  We’re also available any time to talk, should you have any questions.

Airport Stress?

You have a business trip coming up.  You’re an executive who does this almost weekly.  You know the routine.  Plan ahead and get there insanely early.  Obviously, there are plenty of transportation choices when it comes to getting to DC area airports.  Option one is to drive yourself.  Option two is a cab.  Option three is to take the bus.  Option four is to use one of the amateur / phone app car services with cute names.  None of these options is ideal, of course…

If you’re looking to reduce stress, driving yourself is the worst choice.. unless you enjoy traffic, and over-priced parking (assuming the lots aren’t full when you get there).  And then you’ll have that thought in the back of your mind the whole trip – will my car be there when I get back?

What about a cab?

DC cab

Sure, they’re everywhere, and in most cases will get you there.  But it’s a gamble, since you never know who will show up, what condition the car is in, and whether or not they know where they’re going – will they take the fast way, or the long way so the meter adds up to a higher fare?

So what about the bus?

DC_bus

Providing it’s on time, and you left early enough to still get there if it’s late after all the stops, you’ll make your flight.  Is it a comfortable or relaxing experience? Do you really need to ask?

Amateur phone-app car service?

bad_driver_01

Hmm… who will show up?  Will they know the DC area enough to drive without staring at the GPS the entire time – taking the slowest route due to their inexperience?  Quite possibly, or you might get lucky.  The price is cheap, but this is a big part of why it’s cheap.  You get what you pay for.  It’s not exactly the best way to eliminate stress.

And what about a limousine?

chauffeur_01

Well, it’s definitely going to be a step above the previous options.  Sure, we’re a little biased since we are a limo company, but we’ve been doing this for a very long time, and we know how to get you to the airport in the best way possible.  We will show up on time, and navigate the most efficient routes – and we don’t need to use a GPS to do it.  Your ride will be a pleasant and relaxing experience, and you’ll arrive at the airport ready to deal with the lines and security hassles (yeah, sorry.. we can’t really help you there, but at least you will start that process in a better mood than if you had used any of the other transportation options we talked about).
