I traveled to Portland on business toward the end of the week. I've been to the city a few times but hadn't really explored much. My girlfriend and I decided to stay the weekend, and I booked a 6 hour wine tour through Sunshine Limo.
While the reservation experience had a few hiccups, the Sunshine staff quickly noticed and fixed them. Not knowing the area extremely well, I didn't have a great idea of which wineries I wanted to visit, so the Sunshine representative asked me a few simple questions and handled all necessary reservations and made sure the hours of operation aligned with our schedule. I would advise people to call to arrange their reservation vs. going to their web page (which is a little cumbersome and doesn't offer the personal winery suggestions).
The wine tour package gave us the 6th hour for free, came with a complimentary bottle of champagne (for mimosas), and offered the option of a picnic lunch (which we took full advantage of). After a few stops the wine adds up, and it's nice to break it up with some food.
When our car arrived, the driver quickly came off as amiable and attentive. He had built a report with several of the wine makers and was able to arrange for a last minute, private tour and barrel tasting at one of our stops. This was both unexpected and highly memorable. When we returned to the car, he anticipated our needs and provided cool beverages for us. This was just the first stop. Lunch was picturesque, romantic, and delicious. It was served to us from a large picnic basket at a location recommended to us by the driver....it was perfect.
Overall, I couldn't be happier about this experience. I have returned home and have been recommending this to friends and colleagues. After several experiences with limousine and car services (for both business and recreation), I've never before felt compelled to offer this amount of praise. For a romantic, memorable, and relaxing day trip, you should consider this.
