Private 'Car' Tours
If you are traveling as a couple or a small group, (four or fewer), and want an ambassador level tour with an educated 'wine professional,' this is for you.
I am the only wine tour guide/service in the area with a Bachelor of Science degree in Wine. It has been a subject of great interest to me for quite some time, and I love sharing what I know about wine and our great area with interested people. As of June 2016 I have another Guide/Driver who is also wine educated and enthusiastic. (You could get either of us...)
We take you out in a nice minivan to wine country, vineyards, production facilities, and tasting rooms. It is a fun day. We can give you some explanation of what makes this area such a great wine producing region and introduce you to some great wine, and probably some wine makers.
Private car tours are $289 for what is usually around 5 hours. Typically we start at 11AM and run till around 4PM. Tasting fees are not included, but are usually waived with a bottle purchase. Chilled bottled water is provided.
Please email or call me with your question and to check date availability, or book online with the green 'Yakima / Tri-Cities' button.
My primary service area is Yakima to Tri-Cities. I am frequently asked to provide this service for Walla Walla. I am willing, but it is some significant added drive time and mileage for which I must add a nominal fee of $85. So Walla Walla tours are $389. [Walla Walla button]
Bus (or Large Van) Tour for 11 or fewer
Do you have a slightly smaller group than a full bus tour?
We now have an 'in between' bracket of service for you. If you think four people in a car tour will be a bit too close for comfort, or your group is too many for a car tour, but can't justify the cost of a full bus tour, then this is for you. All the same amenities as a full bus tour, acknowledging your smaller numbers.
This is experimental, and only available Sundays and Weekdays.

Descriptions of all tour types below.
Note: The booking app is a convenience for customers to be able to check dates, availability of services, and book quickly and simply without added phone calls and extra steps. It does charge a 6% convenience surcharge. (Kind of like ticketmaster). However, there is no sales tax or any other hidden charges, and I haven't raised my rates since I started the business, now offering 'more' for the same pricing. Please use as works for you, or call to book over the phone. Thanks, Eric Miller

Special Event Tour on the Bus
Do you have a special event planned for which you need bus transportation (but it isn't a wine tour)? Or maybe it is a wine tour, but a totally unique thing...
This is for you. Typically this is for Central and Southeastern Washington travel, allows up to 10 hours (you can opt for more at $85/per) and less than 300 miles.
If your date is available on the calendar when the 'book it' button takes you there, I'm probably game. The booking app will ask some details. Please write a little description with your booking. Let's get you what you need and have a good time!
Up to 29 passengers, any day of the week (except Seahawk Game days, when Seahawk Express takes fans to games), all year round. $900
East West East -aka: Yakima/TriCities/MosesLake to Greater Seattle Area and return
We'll pick you up 8 AM at your chosen Easter WA location, drive you to the Greater Seattle area (or other West Side location), for your group activity, then bring you back the same day. Going to an M's Game? Have a conference/meeting/training session to attend and want some 'team time' together? Then this is for you.
Leave the driving to me and enjoy your time traveling as a group. With a WSLCB banquet permit you may 'pre-function' on the road. The bus has 29 comfortable seats, a good stereo, a four screen video system, (still VHS but converting soon to DVD), overhead reading lights and storage, plus room for luggage in the back.
For sports events you must procure a bus parking pass.
