Ever wonder how wine tours are made? Here is our secret recipe: Take one sumptuous limousine. Add a well-seasoned driver. Stir in several exciting people. Season to taste with sweet bits of Alameda wine country scenery. Serve with plenty of interesting conversation.
You see, our contention is – why wait for the official wine tasting to start your adventure – the joy of the journey can easily be as wonderful as the final destination. Considering wine tours can consist of an entire day, traveling in a climate controlled limo adds comfort on several levels.
Because we come to you, it brings the comfort of someone else taking the wheel. You will feel comfortable tasting various wines, since you won’t be driving. Finally, our drop-off service ensures you arrive home safely.
We offer two types of wine tours:
1. Private wine tours
Private wine tours are ideal for small groups who expect the best ... and aim to get it. We will exceed your expectations. Just describe your idea of the perfect wine tasting excursion and we make it happen. Or, let us work with you to design the itinerary of your dreams. We will recommend elite wineries and spectacular wines.
Private expeditions are also fantastic for people who aren’t comfortable in crowds, close friends or family members.
2. Group wine tours
You may wish to investigate our Group Wine Tours if you believe every new acquaintance is a potential friend. We offer a package rate for our Pleasanton & Alameda County Wine Group Tours. You and your companion(s) will travel with several others to 3-4 wineries, who also prefer the luxury and comfort of a limousine.
Group wine tours can be exciting adventures. You won’t know which wineries you will visit in advance and you won’t know several of your tour-mates. Yet, the group already has two things in common: nobody wants to drive after sampling the vino and all of you like traveling in style.
At the end of the day, you will have made mighty-fine memories. Who knows, maybe you’ll meet one of your fellow travelers another time, another place!

My group had a wonderful experience with two long distance airport transfers that Executive Charters & Limousine recently provided. The drivers (Josh and Rebecca) did and great job! They are excellent drivers and very pleasant and professional. The office staff was efficient and helpful to work with. Thank you for a great experience!
