Chris and Don started Next Adventure Tours & Tasting in 2018 with the goal of providing transportation services to locals and travelers alike. The owner operated business was officially granted operating authority by the California Public Utilities Commission on August 7th, 2018 (CA TCP# 38135). While still considered a new business, Chris and Don have already had the opportunity to provide luxury transportation services to many residents of California’s Central Coast as well as travelers visiting the area on vacation.
We currently have a single 14 passenger Ford Turtle Top VT3 shuttle. The shuttle features 12 rear forward facing premium leather captain chairs each equipped with an arm rest, seat belt, and USB port under the seat. The passenger area offers an independent climate control system for passenger comfort and a surround sound Bluetooth enabled stereo system. The Bluetooth sound system is perfect for passengers who wish to play their own tunes during the trip. Another feature of the shuttle is the automatic step that retracts when the passenger door is opened. The step allows for ease of access to and from the shuttle.
