How much should we tip the driver?
For Motorcoaches, the rule of thumb is $2 – $3 per person per day. A driver’s tip should be determined by his or her performance. Driver gratuity is included in the price of all other vehicles.

Do you offer tours?
Yes we offer virginia tours, virginia winery tours and more – please visit our Tours page (under Services) for additional information.

We also have weekly scheduled Casino trips from Richmond and Fredericksburg to Atlantic City and Charles Town Race & Slots. Please visit our Casino Tours page (under “Things to Do”) for more information.

Where can your vehicles travel?
Our coaches are licensed to travel anywhere in the United States and Canada. We are only limited by the availability of safe roads. We restrict our mini-coaches to trips of less than 250 miles each way. Our experience has shown that for trips longer than this, customers are much more comfortable in motor-coaches, sedans and vans (view our vehicles). Have a specific trip in mind? Request a Quote!

We discourage the use of any hot liquids. Although alcoholic beverages are permitted, Federal Law requires passengers to notify us that it is on-board.
