You will enjoy the quiet, comfortable ride of the Dodge Grand Caravan SXT. It rides as smoothly as a luxury car yet is easier to get in and out of. It seats up to six adults comfortably plus luggage space. It has outlets to plug in your lap-top and cell phone. (I do not use a limousine because there are many wineries that ban limos from their parking lots. By doing a tour in a minivan, we can visit any winery.)
Tours are a minimum of four (4) hours:
* You state what time the tour starts and stops (the wineries are open from 10 A.M. to 5 P.M.).
* I will be glad to take you to the wineries of your choice.
* I can make educated suggestions. For example, if you prefer dry wines, I will be glad to take you to where the finest dry wines are made.
* I do not confine a tour to one lake. I focus on taking you to the wineries that make the type of wine you prefer. Visiting two lakes is not uncommon.
* I will pick you up at any location in the Finger Lakes Region.
* You may snack in the vehicle.
* I will provide bottles of cold water.
* If you would like lunch, I can recommend a restaurant.
Rules of the Road:
I do not render service to "partiers" or people whose intentions are to get drunk. I reserve the right to terminate a tour prematurely if you do not behave in my vehicle and in the wineries. There is a $500.00 cleaning fee if you vomit in my vehicle.
There are three reasons why drinking alcoholic beverages is not permitted in my vehicle:
* Spills are inevitable. The surface of the seats and carpeting can be shampooed but the liquid alcohol goes down to the bottom. When it dries, the vehicle will smell like stale alcohol. I do not want to chauffeur people in a vehicle that smells like stale alcohol.
* Charles Limousine Service is an associate of the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. They strictly forbid drinking alcoholic beverages in a vehicle. If this happens, they will terminate my association. I do not want this to happen because I receive a great deal of business from their website.
* And lastly, it's against the law.
What to Expect:
I will share some history on the vineyards. This will allow you to gain a better appreciation of the wineries and wines. There are several wine makers, in the Finger Lakes, that immigrated to the United States from other countries. They brought their talents to the Finger Lakes making it a world-renowned wine making region! Riesling grapes flourish in our climate. Finger Lakes Rieslings are known around the world!
There is a $50.00 fee for cancelling your reservation.
