Compare the cost of a VinoVan Wine Tour to a limousine:

Consider the cost of a 4-hour tour for four people in a six-passenger limousine  from San Francisco:


  • The typical rate for a six-passenger limousine is $65.00 per hour
  • Limousine companies charge a ‘tax’ of some kind – usually 7.5%
  • A typical $35 (or more) fuel fee is  added
  • Also included will be an automatic 15% to 20% gratuity for the driver
  • While limousine drivers are usually quite professional and friendly, they are usually not well informed wine aficionados. VinoVan Wine Tours offers you an experienced winery guide.
  • If you go even a little over the 4-hour time, this will turn out to be 7 hours of charged time including driving time from San Francisco to the Wine Country and back.  

So, let’s do the arithmetic:

Limousine Rates: (7 hrs. x $65 x  1.15 tip) + $34.13 PUC fee +  $35 fuel = $592.37 total
VinoVan Tour Rates: (3 hrs. to and from the wine country - no charge)
(4 people = $475
.00 total      Gratuity is at your discretion

VinoVan Wine Tours: 

  • We don't count the driving time to and from San Francisco as part of your tour time.
  • We charge for the tour and the tour time in the wine country. We don't want to be 'clock watchers' and we don't want you to be either. (see more details on our ‘Book a Tour’ page)
  • When you book a tour with VinoVan Wine Tours you are hiring an experienced guide for less money to take you on a custom tour of the Wine Country and you decide the gratuity.
