Frequently Asked Questions
Elite Limousine FAQ Page
Northern California is known for so many things … spectacular views, amazing cuisine, world-class art galleries, and numerous headquarters for multi-billion dollar businesses. But it’s also noted for its traffic congestion, confusingly snarled streets, and at times, gaggles of tourists just as lost and confused as you are. Avoid the crowds, forget the traffic, and enjoy the ride with the experienced, professional drivers and immaculate vehicles at Elite Limousine. Got questions? We’ve got answers.

Why should I choose Elite for my limousine rental needs?
The true gems of San Francisco, Napa Valley, and California wine country aren’t the ones on the tourist maps. Elite Limousine’s travel planners and drivers know the hidden little treasures of Northern California, like the special diners en route to Lake Tahoe, the amazing art galleries of Carmel, and the almost empty beaches near San Francisco (yep! There are some!). Aside from our spectacular customer service history, we have the insider information that turns your trip into a real experience.

What if I’m brand new to wine tastings and Napa Valley?
A Napa Wine tour doesn’t require an advanced degree in oenology. In fact, a limo wine tour is the ideal way for wine newbies to learn more about grapes, wines, and winemaking, while also expanding your wine vocabulary and experience. This is where a limo wine tour stands head and shoulders above other wine touring options. Your driver isn’t just a Northern California native and exceptional driver — he or she is also an expert in all things related to wine tours! Learn where the best-kept-secret wineries are. Find out how to conduct yourself in a wine tasting like a pro. Dodge all that ridiculous Napa Valley traffic and enjoy the scenic back roads. All these — plus the absolute luxury of riding in a limousine! — come with a limo wine tour.
