The Bentley was definitely comfortable and smooth, but it was a little awkward that the rear, passenger-side, passenger door was inoperable. Also, Kurt was REALLY nice and knowledgeable, but we were a little surprised when he joined us inside two of the wineries. he did not drink nor was he inappropriate. It's just that while we enjoyed his conversation, we were also glad when we were allowed to enjoy the wineries and scenery as just the two of us. Make no mistake, we both liked Kurt and we had a lovely date, so I hesitate to even raise this... His continued conversation just risked being too much when our primary aim was a quiet weekend for just me and my fiance. We definitely enjoyed his knowledge about the area, prior land owners, history of various wineries, even discussion of haunted houses, so it's more the subtlety of knowing when to fade into the background....
Bit was extremely knowledgeable as our driver. He goes above and beyond to create a lifetime memory providing everything from history to what felt like exclusive access to some of the wineries. He made sure we were well taken care of and was very generous with his time.
Bit was very knowledgeable, very charming, and very attentive. If you want more than just a driver, look no further. Great vehicle, too. Worth every penny.
What a great experience my friends and I had celebrating my 50th birthday. Top Shelf Transportation was extremely helpful in planning everything. Bit was an awesome driver and tour guide. We did two days -- riding in "Ruth" the first day and "Elizabeth" the next. It was wonderful to not have to worry about driving after wine tastings or trying to find the wineries. This company is great to work with and we will definitely be using them again!!
