Let us be your designated driver!

Are you ready for wine tours?

Wine Tour Services

Wine tours are a delightful way to walk through beautiful vineyards, learn about various grape varieties, and be introduced to the wines that come from them.

Designated Driver

Part of the beauty of a wine tour is having the opportunity to taste several different types of wine from a specific geographic area. However, over the course of the day, the amount of alcohol you consume starts to add up. It’s always a good idea to have a designated driver for your group, and this is where we come in. Our drivers are on hand to accommodate your schedule, and will do the diving while you sit back and relax, taking in all your tour has to offer.

Space for your purchases

Often, after ending a tour of a winery, you’ll want to make bottle purchases of your favorite samplings. With a large group, you might be worried about whether there is enough space to bring it all back home. Our coaches come with ample storage, so there is no need to be concerned. Simply bring an insulated wine cooler box, store it on our coach, and enjoy filling it up throughout the day.

Group Transportation

Sometimes coordinating vacation details for an entire group can be a bit daunting. If your group is planning on touring in wine country, consider giving us the privilege of getting you from place to place. Our coaches seat up to 57 passengers and can easily accommodate your group, whatever the size!

Amenities

Our coaches travel in style! Not only can you reserve a coach large enough to take care of your group, you can also get one that has extra perks: individual airflow control for each passenger seat, a bathroom, seat belts, power, Wi-Fi, and video screens, so you can enjoy entertainment, post about your experience on social media in real-time, and relax between stops.

We are here to make your wine tours something to remember!

Green Transportation

At Hotard, our commitment to the environment runs deep. Our company is grounded in the belief that what we leave behind for our children is every bit as important as what we accomplish today.

Professional Drivers

Our driver pool is one of the things we are most proud of at Hotard. We have some of the south’s most accomplished and highly-trained drivers on the roads today. We know that your driver matters, whether you’re being picked up at the airport and taken to a local hotel, or if you are going on a 6-day road trip. We are proud that our drivers are the face of our organization and know that no matter who you ride with, you’re in good hands!

24-Hour Travel Support

No matter how much we want everything to go perfectly, no matter how well we prepare, there are those moments where you simply need help and you need it now! And no matter how much we wish they didn’t, it seems like more often than not, these things happen in the middle of the night. Our team understands that you need help when you need it, not in the morning when someone gets into the office. Our team of dedicated customer service representatives will always have someone there to take your call, answer your question, and get you the help you need to ensure your travels with us are as perfect as we can make them.

  • We were absolutely delighted with our driver, Denise, and Hotard's punctual service, willingness to improvise, spotless equipment and more.  Our Garden District guide, Mary Eshenour, was delightful, informative and very knowledgeable.  Everything worked to perfection, and I would not hesitate to recommend Hotard to any group visiting New Orleans. And it was a pleasure working with our sales person as well!

  • The service you all provided this weekend was EXCELLENT and one of the best I have ever worked with. Hotard was very thorough and prompt with the booking and scheduling process and our three drivers, Darrell, John and Leonard were timely, friendly and very adaptable.   It is people like you that make our trips so successful. Thank you for this! I look forward to working with you all again when we travel to Louisiana again soon.

  • What a fabulous bus!  Your company has now spoiled us.  The bus was great.  We can't wait until our next trip.  Thelma Alexander was an excellent driver.  Her patience and professionalism with a group of "young" ladies is superb.
