Limo Bus Service

A: No. We do not think so called “limo buse”s are limousines. Therefore, we do not keep them in our fleet. Our Hummer and Escalade limousines hold up to 18 people. We just don’t understand the allure of limo buses.

Q: Do you offer airport service?
A: No, we do not offer airport service. Pick ups and drop offs at San Diego International airport require frequent loading and unloading of luggage which damages our limos. If you are looking for airport service, we suggest you hire a black SUV car service.
Limo Transfer Service

Disneyland Limo Service
Q: Can you take us to Disneyland and drop us off?
