Plan Your Fall Wine Tour with Dynasty Limo and First Class Wine Tours!

Long Island's Premiere Limousine Service
P: (631) 587-8500

Still looking for a fun and festive way to celebrate fall? Grab your favorite sweater, friends…and wine glass​,​ because there’s still time to plan your fall wine tour with us.

Our wine tour division, First Class Wine Tours, can handle everything from vineyard arrangements to gourmet lunches for you and your party. We provide our customers with luxurious limousines and/or limo buses which can accommodate a party of 2 to 30 guests​.​ ​We'll bring you to the East End of Long Island for a day of relaxation and fun.

To help you get in the party planning spirit, we​'ve​ rounded up some tips to ensure a successful trip to the vineyards:

  • Select your favorites - With all with vineyards and wineries Long Island has to offer, you won’t be able to visit them all. Only put the places you absolutely must visit on your list.
  • Stay on one fork - Trying to visit locations on both the North and South Fork in one day is difficult. With the bulk of the region’s 50+ wineries located on the North Fork, hoping between them is a breeze! The South Fork​,​ on the other hand​,​ has only three wineries - though visiting Wölffer Estate Vineyard and Channing Daughters is well worth a day trip.
  • There’s an app for that - Yes, you guessed it, Long Island Wine Country has an app available for iPhone and Androids! Search vineyards, events, dining and accommodations in the Long Island Wine Region. With Geo-mapping​,​ you get a map location for all listings and you can share your trip, create favorites, and search all listings. The app is updated daily, so information is always fresh and new!
Once you have a general idea of where you want to ​go, one of our expert wine tour representatives ​will h​andle the rest. For more information on our Winery Tour Packages or to make a Reservation please call 631-587-8500 today.

#TravelThursday - Airport 'Hacks'

Long Island's Premiere Limousine Service
P: (631) 587-8500

We all know how much of a headache flying out of any New York Airport can be. Whether it’s arranging a ride to and from the airport, standing on mile-long lines to get through security, or emptying our wallets on pricey food and drinks - just thinking of the word airport can cause ridiculous amounts of stress. 
So next time you plan to fly in/out of NY - keep these airport ‘hacks’ in mind to make your experience infinitely more bearable:
  • Skip the taxi line - We know your time on the road is invaluable - so don’t waste it (or your money) on a NYC taxi. Reserve a ride with us! We’ll arrive promptly to bring you to or pick you up from the airport.  
  • Cut the Security Lines - Even if you didn’t spend a small fortune on your plane tickets, there are ways to get through security faster. You can sign up for Global Entry ($100) or TSA Pre-check ($85) to get you through those velvet ropes!
  • Burgers and Beers - If you’re a foodie and consider tasty meals and refreshing beverages as a top priority when traveling make sure to stop at Shake Shack (the ONLY place in the world where you can get a Shake Shack breakfast sandwich!) at JFK, the Biergarten at LGA, or Vino Volo or Le Grand Comptoir at EWR.
  • Score Unlimited Drinks - Download the LoungeBuddy app to find out whether or not the booze inside the airport’s lounge is free or not! You can also find out whether or not a credit card you already have can get you access into the lounge for free.
  • Free Wi-Fi - The days of paying for Wi-Fi in airports are almost obsolete. Starting this fall travelers should be able to enjoy free 30-minute sessions to send out any last-minute emails or give that special someone a buzz before takeoff.
