How do I go about booking a tour?

Select either private or join-in (if you don't mind sharing), the date you want to tour, number of hours you want to tour, location you would like to be picked up at, pickup time, and number of passengers. *Join-in Tours are only available for pickup at Hotels in Geneva, NY.
How much bread is this going to cost me?

The remaining balance is due upon completion of tour can be paid with Cash or Credit Card.
*Cancellation Policy - Refundable minus a $25.00 processing fee if canceled prior to 7 days of your scheduled tour.
Just how many of my friends can I pile in this thing?
I guess this all depends on your lifestyle and how much you love your neighbor. Typically six passengers will make for a comfortable enjoyable experience. Seven passengers is okay with someone riding shotgun.

Can we eat, drink, spin one up, do somersaults whilst riding in your bus?
Mi casa es su casa! Well bus, could be our home, who knows? We want you to be comfortable and not feel restrained. Our main goal is your happiness. We strongly encourage everyone to bring some snacks along for your tour.
Know your limits. Maybe you had too much too fast?
How fast does she go? Will we have to get out and push this sucker?
Why are we pulling over HERE!? Are you sure this is safe?
Terrapin is over 45 years old ladies and gentlemen. He has a top speed of right around 58 mph downhill. There is a possibility someone may have to get out and push. Unannounced stops are part of the adventure. Safe enough for us!
Good news: We take excellent care of our vehicles and they love us for it.
In the uncommon occurrence of a vehicle or driver malfunction, we will do our very best to at least make it fun.
How many wineries / breweries can we expect to visit on a given tour?
We have visited as many as twenty-three (23) wineries in 6 hours and as few as two (2). You set the pace...
Where is that MAGIC little snowflake switch?
Friends, we are going back to a time before the air conditioned gypsies arrived. Have no fears though, the circulation of air in these vehicles was well thought out. The wing window, oh yeah! Flip that baby all the way around and wallah, A/C. The weather in the Finger Lakes stays quite comfortable in the Summer and has a constant breeze by the lakes.
I promise you will not melt, unless of coarse you dropped... umm... never mind
Can you turn up the heat?
Heat was never one of the highlights in older VW's either, please dress appropriately.
How far will you travel to pick us up?
Ideally, we would like to limit pickups to the Geneva Area. Your time begins when and where we pick you up and ends the same. There is a fee for travel time depending on your distance from our base in Geneva up to a 35 mile radius.
Geneva area pickups (within a 12 mile radius) are always free.
I am flippin' starving, where can I grab a bite?
Over recent years, the demand for places to eat on the wine trails has finally been met. Most Wineries that we visit have excellent food options that will get you back on the tour in no time. We still highly recommend you bring a snack.
What in the Frigg are we listening to?
Other than that sweet, sweet sound of an air-cooled engine; more than likely The Grateful Dead. You don't have to listen to The Dead. We have outfitted the bus with blue-tooth so you can be in complete control.
After checking out this magnificent website, I still have questions.
No problem, we will surely have questions of our own for you as well.
We will be in touch shortly.
