Dine & Drive
"Supporting local & mental health during COVID"
Private 1-2hr sight-seeing excursions for immediate household members only (max 8 people). Great for reviving mental health due to COVID-19 Stay-at-home orders. These excursions are meant to be "driving" outings. Enjoy some great food, the sights and give
your family something out of the ordinary.
Why is this safe with COVID?
*Our mini-bus normally holds 38 passengers, we will not go over 8
*Passenger seating is approx. 25' from the front of the bus and the driver
*The driver is on the other side of a plastic sheeting, separating driver from passenger
*Driver will have face mask and abide by the 6' at all times
*The bus is disinfected between each outing; seats, flooring, windows, tables, cup holders, table baskets, handles and so forth
What do you clean with?
We clean with bleach and water for flooring, Lysol for spraying fabrics and Lysol wipes for all other surfaces
Will you have hand sanitizer for us to use or do we need to bring your own?
Yes, as of now, we have liquid hand sanitizers and personal packets
You said we could order food?
YES! Please feel free to order food from your favorite restaurant (pay of course) and we will either pick it up prior to the trip or stop on our way out of town. PLEASE NOTE: trips are 1-2 hours depending on the one you choose. You may want to order way in advance so the time does not cut into your hour(s). We do not charge for picking up your order, prior to departure - OUR TREAT!
Can we just bring our own food?
Absolutely. We bring up ordering food locally because we, as a company, are trying to support our local restaurants and small businesses. But, totally understandable if eating out isn't in the budget. We can only do what we can do, right?
Will you have silverware or napkins for us?
Yes. We will have single serve silverware, napkins and cups - no plates. Once you open a private silverware, napkin or cup package, its yours to keep.
Can we have alcohol on the bus?
Yes, in the back of the bus only. There is a $100 cleaning fee that will be due at time of booking and refunded after the trip, if there are no accidents. As you know, alcohol stains must be professionally removed.
Can we have a birthday or graduation party on the bus?
Yes. The space in the rear is yours. Decorate, bring balloons, play music. Everyone loves it! BUT...remember, it is only your immediate household, no friends and other family members. I know, I know BUT... PLEASE abide by this rule so we can continue to provide this service to others. As COVID rules change, we will adjust as well.
Will we be stopping anywhere?
That's a tough one. Yes, to stopping and picking up your food orders. Yes, to a bathroom break on the 1.5-2 hour trips. Yes to the winery curb-side pick up (see next question). All other stops are...possibly. If we can pull over to an empty parking lot at the coast, so we can actually hear the waves and breathe the air, we most definitely will.
What is the curb-side winery pick-up and what winery will it be?
As wineries start to open, some will have curb-side pick-ups for their customers. When planning your trip, we will have a better idea of who will be offering the service. Then, you can order what you like and we will make it part of our trip!
Do we have a choice on where we want to go?
If you would like a custom trip, just give us an email or call and we can see what we can do.
Is my trip non-refundable?
Not refundable BUT you can reschedule
