How long have you been in business?
We launched in 2011 on Long Island, the Finger Lakes in 2012, followed by the Willamette Valley and Walla Walla in 2015.
Are your drivers covered by insurance?
Yes, each driver is covered under our comprehensive insurance policy with an A+ national insurance carrier. Insurance Certificates may be provided upon request after reservation is confirmed.
Who plans my tour?
Depending on your needs, our drivers are happy to provide insight and recommendations for your day. Ultimately, we leave the reservations to you, as most destinations will require a credit card deposit and we don’t release any payment information on your behalf. Parties of 6 or more usually require advance reservations all year long.
What happens to my car when on a wine tour?
Your car never moves unless you’re in it. Upon request, your driver will make additional passenger pick-ups or stop for provisions.
Are your drivers local?
Yes, we source our drivers from the local communities and many of them have been involved in the industry for years, whether as tasting room managers or part of the viticulture programs, and all are very well acquainted with the offerings at the wineries, cideries, breweries and distilleries as well as where you can stop to experience live music, a scenic photo op or a refueling pit stop to try the best of the local cuisine.
Do you drive rental cars?
Yes. Our comprehensive insurance policy covers both personal and rental vehicles, and depending on your rental policy, our drivers can even meet you at your rental facility to be added to your agreement (travel time may apply).
How many passengers are we allowed to have?
Main Street Drivers is insured to drive vehicles up to 15 passengers (see rates for group pricing), as long as each passenger has a working seat belt.
Am I able to request a specific driver?
We try to accommodate special requests for drivers when possible, but scheduling does not always permit for it. If you want to guarantee a specific driver for your trip, we suggest calling at least 2 weeks in advance of your reservation. Additional fees may apply. Please see Rates & Policies.
I cannot say enough about this service company! Main Street Drivers is my Go-To recommendation for all the guests at Single Island Shores looking for a safe way to go wine or beer tasting. Visitors to our area often don’t realize that there aren’t any local cab companies in town and options like Uber and Lift barely exist and are not reliable in this rural region. Main Street Drivers is a super convenient solution to the non-existent public transportation on Seneca Lake. Plus, their drivers are very knowledgeable on all the wineries, breweries, and events in the area. Which allows them to provide excellent suggestions to guests that are unsure of where to start with all the choices that exist in the Finger Lakes.
