How does your service stand out?

It stands out, due to the fact that we happily, take our clients to the places they choose.

We feel Your Guide Driver earns their gratuity, by the end of the day. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Do not be fooled by those that have corrupted our name in order to ride our coattails. --- We are the Original and we are known World Wide as: --- Napa Sonoma Wine Tasting Driver. --- Your Wine Tasting Driver For Hire.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

In a word: Variety. --- Our clients provide us with variety. --- In how each one is different, with different needs and wants, as to the previous client. -------------------------------- ********** Our Job 1 is keeping them safe. ********** We do however, get a great sense of accomplishment from finding out what they desire and then fulfilling those wishes. --- Wish fulfillment, benefits all.

    We hired NSWTD to drive our rental car. Mike was the best driver we could have asked for. Professional and so nice. He showed up early, and was very flexible to our needs. Our only issue was that when we got to the rental counter, Fox did not allow for hired drivers. we found a loop-hole and ended up being ok, but just know to check with your rental car company first about their policies OR, don't tell them you are hiring someone, just add that person to your insurance as a "friend" .

    Champie took me and my boyfriend wine tasting for the day and we had a fantastic time! He was very prompt, flexible and knowledgeable. He had good tips and suggestions and was even able to get us a discount at one place. I would definitely recommend him!

    What an enjoyable day! Dave was so nice and the day was very relaxed. He was on time and we never felt pressure to hurry or leave a place. And the best part is no set itinerary. We had a couple places we wanted to go and asked for ideas for others and he had some great ones!!! Yes, will use again. Thanks Susan

    We are just recently returned from a great Napa Valley vacation. While there, we hired a driver to make sure we could enjoy as much tasting as possible. Champie, our “driver-for-hire,” did a fantastic job of taking us safely from destination to destination – but as importantly to us, he was able to make fabulous recommendations for wineries/tasting facilities that were smaller and/or off the beaten path. He has a great knowledge of the Napa area wineries and matched that to our tasting interests very well. Champie arranged a wine tasting luncheon for us with a local wine farmer that was amazing and also scored appointments for us as we needed them. We would recommend his services for anyone traveling to the Napa or Sonoma area.

    This is a wonderful service! I would recommend this company and plan on using it again. They have a great knowledge of the area and the recommendations were awesome. We had a great experience and great customer service.
  • Neil S. Jun 1, 2011
    Champie did a great job of choosing some wineries for us to visit. We were pretty specific, and his choices were spot on. He was also a lot of fun - quite the opposite to the usual stoic limo drivers. Rates were reasonable.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes. --- Every Good Guide will do Trade Tastings, during the slow winter season to refresh their knowledge of the best places to take their clients.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Monday - Wednesday the rate is $30 per hour with a 6 hour minimum. Thursday - Sunday the rate is $35 per hour with a 6 hour minimum. Both take one hour deposits to hold a driver. It is done at the website.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I always have loved showing people a great time. I wanted them to save money, instead of using an expensive overpriced limousine service. Because they charge double for the food and wine tastings, they setup for their clients. We do not. I wanted them to stay safe on our roads and out of jail.
What types of customers have you worked with?
A Tasting Day of Exclusive Vineyards. --- A Tasting Day of Premium Wine & Food Pairings. --- Wedding Divers. --- Drivers for nights out on the town or into the city. --- A Day of Sightseeing. --- ********************************** All Days are in the Client's rental/private vehicle. ------ Thank You, The Napa Sonoma Wine Tasting Driver *******Go with the original, except no substitutes.********
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Check their reviews.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That a Driver for Hire Service, cannot use their own vehicle and that the Client needs to provide Full Coverage Insurance on either their private vehicle or a rental vehicle of their own choosing.
