Thank you Executive Limousine and staff for a lovely time in Wine Country.
Great service from beginning to end, starting with the office staff Megan and
ending with the best driver Gerry! We had mentioned the wineries we wanted to visit
but at suggestion of Gerry we hit a couple he recommended and glad we did. We had
planned on going out for a few hours and stayed out well past dinner! A good time
was had by all, Thank you for a very memorable weekend.

My family and I used Executive Limo over the weekend and we had such a great time. We went
to Santa Ynez and did some Wine tasting and the driver was so nice and knowlegable about the
area. I could not beleive how much he knew about that whole area and how nice the limo we had.
Everytime we stopped he would clean up our mess and and we would come back to the car and it
was spotless. WOW. I will be back for sure, my family was so impressed and made me look like

Our driver, Roger showed up on time with the Escalade we reserved and it was in perfect condition.
We told him we didn't want to go to the trendy popular wineries, but more boutique wineries with great
tasting wines. Two of us liked red and two liked whites. Roger was great. He took us to great wineries
and when we told him that we had already been to one or two that he was thinking of taking us to, he immediately
came up with another great idea. He was extremely knowledgeable of the area. We picked up sandwiches at Panino
in Los Olivos and we ate our picnic lunch with a bottle of wine at Rusack. It was very beautiful.
