Wine enthusiasts interested in exploring Oregon Wine Country and tasting at their favorite wineries, but concerned with transportation peace of mind, now have an affordable alternative to an organized tour or limousine service. The following are some frequently asked questions which may be helpful to you in determining if my service is appropriate for your circumstances:
F A Q
Q. In what areas do you provide designated driver service?
A. Primarily in the Willamette Valley wine country of Oregon, and also the Columbia River Gorge area wineries of Oregon and Washington.
Q. Do you recommend specific vineyards or wineries?
A. Not typically. Self-Directed Wine Tour presumes that you will determine which wineries to visit (Note: I can create a logical routing upon request). Just think of me as your personal designated driver.
Q. How many drivers are there at Drive Pro?
A. Just one. Scott Thompson is the owner and your driver.
Q. How many people can you take on a tour?
A. I specialize in smaller groups, parties of four or less; however under certain conditions, larger groups can easily be accommodated.
Q. Do you group people together?
A. No. Your reservation is dedicated to you or your group only.

A. Seven days a week in the months of April through October, subject to confirmed bookings. Limited availability or referrals Nov thru March.

Q. If my rental car is used, does your insurance cover it?
A. My insurance does not cover your rented vehicle. When you rent your vehicle, you may be able add me as an additional driver to your rental agreement with just a copy of my driver's license. Check with the rental agency well in advance to be sure or contact me for a referral.
Q. How far in advance do I need to book?
A. At least two weeks, if possible; however, I'm happy to accommodate last minute bookings subject to schedule availability.
Q. What is the cost for your service?
