Questions:

This is How We Roll…

FIVE DOOR 8-PASSENGER LIMO

Raising the Bar for Passenger Safety and Comfort

  • California has mandated five doors on all new build limousines after 2015- as an escape feature in the event of accident. The fifth door  makes passenger exit or entry super easy for passengers at the front of the vehicle
  • Raised Roof- 3.5-inches has been added to the roof for lots more interior space volume. Easier to move around inside- way more open than limos with standard roof line
  • Large cut out between passenger space and driver make it easy to converse, and hear info and history as we roll down the road

LATE MODEL YUKON XL SUV

Holds 6 Passengers Comfortably with Lots of Storage Room in Back

  • 3 rows of seating- 6 or 7 plus driver
  • This SUV is kept in pristine condition inside and out- never used as the family-hauler when not working
  • It’s used exclusively for commercial transportation

I plan, coordinate and drive every tour myself. We do all types of ground transportation- our Class A permit allows us to work anywhere in California.
We carry $1.5 million A+ rated commercial insurance.
Happy to help with any touring or transportation need or question- so please give us a call.

JZ “The Wine Tour Guy”

John Ziegler – Host and wine tour “Rocket Scientist”

Since 2005 I’ve been actively doing wine tours in SB and SLO Counties, and have done over 1,000 wine tours on the Central Coast. Being a first-call limo driver for high end boutique hotels like Santa Ynez Inn, Fess Parker Wine Country Inn, Hadsten House, Hotel Corque, Four Seasons Biltmore, and Bacara for many years kept my service skills well honed. I’ve done well over 500 wine tours in Santa Barbara County alone. My reputation has developed around planning high end wine tours with savvy, serious about wine clientele, plus my skills at delivering great wine experiences on the fly. Gradually my focus began to shift to small production, high quality boutique wineries. In 2009 I started freelancing my own tours as JZ Wine Tour Guy. This was at the midpoint of a 10-year staff writing gig with Pacific Coast Sportfishing Magazine, Newport Beach CA. Technical writing at a manufacturing company in Paso Robles brought me to North San Luis Obispo County in 2011. I immediately fell back into the limo thing after running into a winemaker friend who recommended me to a local transportation company. (More Information)
