Frequently Asked Questions
Tour Rules for all tours:
These tours are fixed packages and thus in order to receive the discounts that each winery and Destination Drivers is offering, no substitutions or eliminations are allowed. If you book any of our winery specialized tours, you cannot substitute any other wineries or you will not receive the discounts at any of the participating wineries. You are responsible for any fees at the wineries as they are not included in the fee for the Destination Drivers’ designated driver, which is paid in cash at the end of the day to your driver. If you prefer to create your own itinerary, you are more than welcome to do so and Destination Drivers is happy assist you if you would like suggestions based on the wines you like, the time you have and the type of experience you would prefer (i.e. large commercial winery vs. small boutique winery). The average tour is 5-6 hours at the various wineries, not including drive time for pickups outside of Lodi. Destination Drivers has a four hour minimum and no maximum. You will only be charged for the time that you actually use our service. We will pick you up at your home or lodging or location of your choice with enough time to get your party to the first winery at approximately 11am, allowing enough time for a relaxing day exploring and enjoying all five of the included wineries, all of whom close at 5 pm. Enjoy this amazing tour experience for $210 for 6 hours of wine tasting and exploring the Lodi region. 6 hours is an estimate and $210 is based on $35/hr for groups of up to 5 people. 6-10 = $45/hr and 11-14 = $55 per hour. Destination drivers will provide a 10% discount on our hourly rate as part of this tour package. Tasting fees are not included in this estimated price. Special discount tasting fees that accompany this tour are indicated in the information about each winery and are at the wineries discretion. David Blank
DD drives MY vehicle?
Yes. You are hiring a designated driver who drives your vehicle (or rental vehicle). We don’t have any limo, party bus, towncar, SUVs available. Our clients love their own cars more!
To use Destination Drivers, you have to sign an agreement and provide insurance for your vehicle. The drivers we refer to you are independent contractors, each carrying their own insurance policies. Between you and your driver, you should be protected in the rare case of an accident, but there is a very small chance in certain instances that you and your driver’s insurances do not cover everything. You are giving your driver ‘permissive status’ to drive your vehicle under your policy, and agreeing that in the rare case of an accident, Destination Drivers will not be held liable if either insurance policy does not cover any or all of the costs. Your insurance company becomes the ‘primary’ if anything should happen to your vehicle.
We drive rental vehicles for ENTERPRISE and NATIONAL, as they allow your driver to easily be added onto your rental policy as an ‘additional’. If you have a HERTZ, ALAMO or BUDGET car, we may be able to drive it but we will NOT be able to be signed on as an additional driver without going to the agency with you. In this our standard hourly rate applies and possibly additional fees for driver expenses.
$35 per hour (1-5 passengers)$45 per hour (6-10 passengers)$55 per hour (11-15 passengers)*4-hour minimum Tips and gratuity are not included in the rate and drivers accept them graciously. Payments are received in cash only.
Our team comes from different backgrounds, but each driver is trained and tested to ensure they exercise high-level awareness and attention to detail. Every one is a non-smoker with a clear DMV record, possessing their own personal independent car insurance.
Where to? It’s your day and you get to go where you want, when you want, for as long as you want. With that in mind, we routinely make suggestions and assist with planning/reservations to make your experience the best it can possibly be.
For groups larger than one vehicle can fit, you may simply hire additional drivers to drive additional vehicles. We also commonly drive 15-passenger vans rented by our guests (Enterprise is best).
You are most welcome to bring your puppy! Many wineries allow dogs, and some do not. We can tailor your destinations to those which are dog-friendly, and drivers are OK with watching/walking your dog should there be any issues. ALSO, WE CAN OFTEN PROVIDE A DOG FOR THE DAY IF YOU DESIRE. JUST LET US KNOW IN ADVANCE.
In most areas, we can and strive to offer this possibility. With advance notice we can make reservations for you to experience cave tours, barrel tastings, and arrange special plans.
