Afterglow, or Regret? Which will you feel most after your vacation?
Deciding what to do with your limited time and resources is important and irreversible. Once back home either you live in the afterglow of a wonderful experience—reviewing your photos, remembering stunning vistas and priceless moments. Or you regret that you wasted your time herded in a crowded bus, tired and frustrated in a rent-a-car or way over budget in a limo. Frankly, sightseeing in the San Francisco Bay Area is often expensive and while you may "save" $$ by opting for the cheaper alternative, you're sure to miss many hidden gems of the city, an unique winery, that truly memorable panoramic view. Choose a big-bus tour and you pay the least per-person, but must start the tour in a place convenient to them. Spend most of your time looking through a window, missing the smaller family-owned and literally off-the-beaten-path wineries that are off-limits to buses. Forget spontaneity as the guide canseldom respond to your requests. Most big buses go to wineries where you're often in crowds and told to hurry. You get what you pay for. Decide to rent a car and spend precious time picking it up then poring over maps and getting lost anyway. Even with GPS, you probably will not appreciate what you're driving by and you'll have no one to ask. You risk getting caught in traffic bottlenecks, missing the most scenic and interesting routes and off-road attractions, wasting time searching for elusive gas stations…and if you're the driver, you can't take in the sights if you want to avoid an accident, and shouldn't drink and drive. If you're not careful about where you park, you'll spend a bundle on fines. Choose a limo and pay more—often a lot more with all their hidden fees—twist around in your seat since limos position you with your back to the scenery, experience a driver who's not necessarily well versed in history or architecture, and forget about visiting fascinating places where limos cannot physically go. You won't enjoy limos if you have to be careful with your knees or back. Then there's the Wine Train--rather expensive when you add in the wine, and you pass by better dining options. We can show you the half of the Valley they can't. With us, you go inside several wineries....with them at most one.
