Party Buses Vs. Limousines: The Basics
Party Buses are the next level in making your event fun! They take the privacy, amenities and comfort of a limousine and then step it up with a larger and more entertaining space where you can even dance and keep the party going from stop to stop.
A party bus is essentially a large vehicle filled with amenities that will keep you and your
guests partying all night long. In most cases, you might think of it as a nightclub on wheels.
Depending on your specific bus and rental service, a few of the amenities you can expect are
comfortable luxury seating options, lighting control options, a fully controllable sound system, a large
TV, video games, and some even have onboard bathrooms that you wouldn't find in a Limo.
A party bus isn’t just a way to get from one destination to the next. When you ride in a party bus, you are the destination, and you can take it with you wherever you go. Ninja Buses in Austin, Texas focuses and specializes in creating a continuous experience for your event and is why they are the best reviewed party bus company in Texas.
As is the case with limos, party buses also come in a variety of different sizes so there’s a bus to
suit every need and occasion. Some buses are designed for as few as 2-14 passengers, while
others can fit up to 50 people at once, as well as numerous in-between options. Because Ninja Buses has such a large fleet, they can even host events with hundreds or even thousands of people. Whether you’re
bringing just a few friends, or you want to invite the whole town, there’s a party bus that works for you!
Be aware, however, a party bus will usually come with a higher price tag than a limo. While the price will vary
based on numerous factors, you can expect to pay somewhere between $100 to $250 per hour
compared to around $130 per hour for a Limo. This is primarily due to the increase in the size of the vehicles and the overall amenities available on a party bus. In the case of Ninja Buses, their pricing also
includes driver gratuity, cleaning, and booking fees while many other companies lure you in with
a lower hourly price and then sneak in hidden fees at the end that often make your trip more
Additionally, most Limo services are pretty rigid and strict on their time frames and stops as they are primarily focused on the transportation component of your trip, With Ninja Buses, your group has the flexibility to extend the trip or pivot to different destinations depending on the weather or various situations because the drivers are committed to the overall experience of a group's event and have endless ways we to keep the party going. For example, if you have a lake day planned but thunder storms roll in, your driver can quickly make plans to take your group bar hopping or on a Distillery/Brewery tour so your event can still be
amazing no matter what Texas weather throws at you.
As you might expect, there are plenty of amazing reasons to rent a party bus. Here are just a few
Yes, we know we just said party buses are usually more expensive than limos. But consider the
fact that party buses can easily sit twice as many people as a limo, if not more. The large increase
in passengers can significantly offset the slight increase in price. If you’re splitting the cost of your
rental with all your passengers, you’ll easily save money by taking a party bus. For
example, a Limo for 10ppl for 4 hours would be $130 x 4 = $520. That would be $52 per
person not including tip and cleaning charge. For the same service you can ride with Ninja Buses
and invite 10 more people and pricing would be 20ppl for 4 hours and that would be $180 x 4 =
$720 including all charges so the price per person would only be $36!
The amenities in a party bus easily outweigh those you’ll find in a limo, or in any other vehicle,
for that matter. If you’re looking to have a party while on the move, there’s no better way to do it
than on a party bus. We have state of the art party lights, sound system with Bluetooth that will
blow your clothes off, TV with DVD player and Nintendo loaded with every game imaginable,
fog machine, and AC and Heat. Upgrades coming soon are Satellite TV so you wont miss the big
game, Karaoke Machine, a la cart menu that includes fully stocked bar, catering or snack trays,
gift baskets, decorations pre arranged based on your event, Brand Ambassadors to travel with
your group to help load and unload your supplies that you are bringing on the bus, help with
rounding up your group if you are stopping at multiple destinations, and ability to help you
operate all of our technology on board to maximize your groups experience.
3. More Space
Do you want to take a large group of people along for the ride? Worried there isn’t a vehicle out
there big enough to fit them all? Don’t worry. In a Ninja Party Bus, there’s plenty of room for
everyone. Whether your party consists of 20 people or 50 people, there’s a party bus out there
that will fit your entire crew comfortably.
As is the case with limos, your party will remain private in the back of a Ninja Party Bus. The
windows are typically tinted, and the driver sits alone, so you don’t feel as though you have an
extra guest at your party. You are encouraged to stand up and dance when safe to do so, drink, or utilize the "utility pole" while your trip in underway, something you certainly couldn't do in a Limo. Ninja Buses can also accommodate groups that want to bring their own live entertainment for those looking for a more adventurous
experience (fees for dancers and tips for entertainment are not included in the price for the party
bus and must be arranged by the person booking the Party Bus)
With this many great reasons to rent a party bus, there can’t possibly be any negatives, right?
Well, there are a few things to remember before you commit to your party bus:
Because party buses are so large there are some neighborhoods and event venues that we cannot
access based on clearance or narrow or steep roads. We will always scout locations and come up
with a plan to accommodate at a minimum inconvenience for your group.
Austin has grown exponentially in size and that has led to congestion on our roadways. Party
Buses are typically 35ft to 40ft long and to make the ride as smooth as possible our expert
drivers are cautious in their driving so you can stand up and party without getting thrown around.
With that in mind our expert sales team will help plan your itinerary to give plenty of time to
make it to your destinations on time based on road conditions and bus speed limitations.
WHAT TYPE OF EVENTS ARE PERFECT FOR RENTING A PARTY BUS?
1. BACHELOR/BACHELORETTE PARTY
For some parties, a limo can be appropriate, but in almost every other case, we think a
Party Bus is the best way to go for a fun night of partying with your favorite group of guys, gals,
or couples. You can get the party started as you travel to your destination, and keep it going no
matter where you travel around town.
These events could go either way, as some people are looking for a more formal and
sophisticated mood at their wedding, while others want to throw a big party for them and all their
friends to celebrate, dance, and have fun. Depending on which you’re looking for, you should
choose either a Limo or a Party Bus, respectively. Ninja Buses does offer luxury car rentals for a
private ride to and from the venue for the Bride and Groom in either a beautiful classic '57 Chevy or a
2018 Range Rover Velar.
3. HOMECOMING OR PROM
When you’re headed to the most anticipated event of your high school life which method of
transportation is better? It may be most helpful to consider the number of people. If you have a
large group of friends, a party bus might be your best bet. You can also use the dance floor on
the bus to help get everyone in a dancing mood before you even arrive at the real party.
If your party is large and the event is more casual, a party bus is the right way to go. Bring all the
Liquor, Beer, Wine etc on board and let us worry about cleaning up.
5. BOAT PARTIES AND FLOAT TRIPS
Ninja Buses partners with all Marinas on Lake Travis and Lake Austin to provide transportation
to and from your Party Barge Rental and also partners with River Floating Companies on the Comal
and Guadalupe Rivers to bring your group safely to and from your float trip.
6. COMMUNAL TRIPS (Pay Per Seat)

Party buses are a fun and unique group transportation solution to almost any event. Since it's a fairly new industry, there are definitely a few common misunderstandings about what a party bus company has to offer. Here are some common myths held about renting a party bus:
Myth #1 - Party Buses are just for Bachelor and Bachelorettes:
It is true that Austin is a major destination for Bachelor and Bachelorette parties and they do make up a large portion of our guests. We even have a bus called "The Bachelor" ;) The truth is we service a super wide variety of occasions including birthdays, special events, corporate outings, proms, river floating trips, concerts, lake trips, and wine tours to name a few. Fortunately, we find ourselves servicing some of the strangest events you could imagine, which makes our job really interesting!
Myth #2 - Party Buses are just for College Students:
There are some great schools in the Austin area and we absolutely love to host University of Texas students on social outings and float trips. However, this makes up just a portion of our business as we usually see ALL AGES on our party buses. They are truly fun for everyone and we'll even offer a discount if you bring your grandma ;P Ninja Buses has a wide range of vehicles with appropriate options for any group of people.
Myth #3 - Party Buses are not appropriate for kids:
Party Buses are perfect for kids! We have done several birthday party trips for kids and always have a blast. There are lots of activities in town for young Ninjas and it is smart to keep them all together safely.
Myth #4 - Party Buses are always School Buses:
We have a really fun and unique fleet of buses with all kinds of interesting party vehicles that range from tour buses, city buses, vintage party buses, shuttles, and a "Badillac" party car. Expect comfort and ice-cold A/C! Check out our fleet of Austin Party Buses on our website. We have some super awesome school buses too :)
One of the primary reasons that people rent a party bus is that they can drink on the road. After all, you're not the one driving, are you? What should you bring, though? A party bus, while spacious, is not as big as a house. Because of that, you've got to be a bit more selective about best drinks to bring (and make sure you account for the space everything you bring will take up).
Best Drinks for a Party Bus Trip
There really isn't a "best drink" for a party bus, but the most common beverage choice is beer. At the end of the day, however, it really depends on what you are celebrating. If you're hosting a tailgate party, then beer is absolutely the way to go. Going on a winery tour? Well, maybe bring some wine! Let's look at the three best drinks to bring on a party bus:
As we mentioned above, beer is the number one drink of choice on a party bus. Since you'll be drinking for hours on end, you don't want to get too inebriated too early in the trip. Who wants to black out when they've just spent a bunch of money on a party bus? Plus, beer fits the bill for almost any occasion. From brewery tours to a simple night out on the town, beer is king.
One of the top destinations for party bus groups is a winery. Winery tours, especially those in the Texas Hill Country, are becoming more and more popular for party bus groups. If you're doing a winery tour, you're going to want to stick with drinking wine between drives. Why is that? Well, mixing any type of alcohol that isn't wine with wine is a recipe for a hangover. Keep it simple and bring some wine to your party bus!
For a bachelor party, whiskey may be the liquor of choice, but vodka seems to be the most widely-consumed liquor among the masses. Rum is too sweet. Gin is too spicy. Whiskey is too strong. But vodka? Vodka is just right for easy drinking. Now, this can prove to be dangerous, as easy-drinking usually translates to quickly consumed. So drink responsibly, and everyone will have a good time!
What Should You Prepare?
Don't forget, it is illegal for a party bus company to provide you with any liquor unless they have a liquor license, which most party bus companies do not have. So the first thing you should think to prepare is your ice chests.
A good rule of thumb is to bring one ice chest for every four people in your party. If you're bringing a mix of different types of alcohol, try to keep them grouped together in their own separate ice chests.
One thing that people tend to forget is cups! They never forget the booze or the ice, but people always forget cups. So be sure to buy some red solo cups or some plastic wine glasses for your alcohol.
Another good tip? Bring an extra ice chest full of bottled water. If you're going to be drinking for 8+ hours, you're going to want to hydrate!
How Can Ninja Buses Help?
While Ninja Buses cannot provide any alcohol for you, that doesn't mean we can't help you out! After all, we are providing the mode of transportation, aren't we? What we can do is offer you our expertise, which includes recommendations on how to have a good time. Those recommendations can be shared upon booking with us.
When you book a Ninja Bus, you will get access to an ice chest with bottled waters on all of our buses so all you have to worry about is the booze and food. If you'd like, you can even drop off your booze and food the day before a drive so we can have it set up for you when we pick you up! We know party-planning can be stressful. Our job is to make that process as easy as possible so you can actually enjoy your trip.

What is the first thing that pops into your head when you think of a bachelor party? Most people think of strip clubs. For the sake of class, we're going to refer to them as gentlemen's clubs in this article. It just sounds better, don't you think? So, you want to go to a gentlemen's club for your bachelor party, do you? Good for you! There are quite a few of them peppered around Austin, Texas. So we're here to let you know which ones should be at the top of your list.
Gentlemen's Clubs in Austin
Despite being the capital of Texas, Austin isn't known for its gentlemen's clubs. This isn't to say that there aren't any (or that they aren't good), but the term isn't synonymous with the city. That being said, there are a plethora of options in Austin. Here are just a few of our favorites:
XTC caters a lot to the younger crowd in Austin, Texas. If you're ever in a parking lot for a student housing facility (especially in the Riverside area), you're bound to see flyers for XTC under the windshield wipers of all of the cars. XTC Cabaret is a fully nude gentlemen's club with an affordable cover charge of $30. Did we mention that it's B.Y.O.B?
Funny story about Rick's Cabaret: the county line between Williamson County and Travis County runs through the property. To avoid falling under Williamson County's regulations, so (supposedly) the owner extended the entrance to make it qualify for jurisdiction under Travis County's regulations. If that is true, then that's some devotion! Also great is their $15 lunch special. Don't miss it!
The Palazio Experience
The Palazio is quickly becoming one of the hottest spots in towns for the male citizens (and visitors) of Austin. Located on the southeast side of town. The Palazio Experience boasts some of the nicest dancers in town. And if you're a group of ladies celebrating your bachelorette party, just have at least one male escort and you can get in, too! Just pay the cover and you can enjoy The Palazio Experience.
The Yellow Rose
We know that the food isn't the reason you go to a gentlemen's club, but hear us out: The Yellow Rose has the best food out of all the gentlemen's clubs in Austin, Texas. Of course, the girls there are all gorgeous and only of the classiest variety. Out of all the gentlemen's clubs in Austin, The Yellow Rose is the place to go if you can only go to one.
Why Go to A Gentlemen's Club in Austin, Texas?
Going to a gentlemen's club for your bachelor party is pretty much a rite of passage for any soon-to-be ex-bachelor! Not only can you enjoy some great food and classy drinks, but you can also enjoy the sight of some beautiful women.
If you're really looking to spend some money, shell out the cash for the VIP area of any gentlemen's clubs. You'll be afforded plenty of extra attention from not only the girls, but also management. It's absolutely worth the extra cost, especially if you want to impress your friends.
Tips for The Best Gentlemen's Club Experience
Some people get nervous when they're in a gentlemen's club, and that's understandable. It's not every place that you have nude women vying for your attention. There are a few things you should know before walking inside a gentlemen's club to ensure that you have the best experience, and they are:
Why Use A Party Bus?
If you're going to be visiting a gentlemen's club on your bachelor party weekend, why not arrive in style? You don't want to show up to a gentlemen's club in a dingy old vehicle or a bunch of Ubers. You are there to have a good time, so why not travel in what is essentially a nightclub on wheels so that the party never has to stop? A party bus is the best mode of transportation for a bachelor party, as we have discussed before.
So contact Ninja Buses today to book a party bus for your bachelor party!
We see buses traveling on the highway every day. From school buses to party buses to charter buses to tour buses, there is a wide variety of buses being used on the roads today.
But how do you know which one you need to use for your event? Every type of bus has its own distinct personality, so let's delve into a few of them, starting with charter buses in Austin.
What Are Charter Buses?
Charter buses, also known as coaches or motor coaches, are essentially very large buses. They are just as big as a tour bus (if not bigger), but they lack the special amenities that tour buses offer like beds, sofas, a mini-kitchen, etc.
The benefit that charter buses have over all other buses, however, is their capacity. Most charter buses can fit upwards of 35-40 people in their large cabins.
Most often used for corporate travel, charter buses are primarily used for long-distance trips. If a company has a conference to attend that is out of the city where they are based, then a charter bus is probably the vehicle option it will go with since airfare tends to be on the pricier side of things.
Since they are made for long-distance travel, charter buses are frequently referred to as an airplane on wheels. They have large luggage compartments underneath the cabin, TV screens behind the headrests (or TVs that fold down from the ceiling), small restrooms, Wi-Fi and power outlets.
They are very useful for business travel, even if they don't come with road attendants.
Can You Have a Bachelor Party on a Charter Bus in Austin?
While you have the option to use any type of vehicle(s) for your bachelor party, it isn't recommended to use a charter bus.
Yes, you'll be able to move everyone around town in the same vehicle, thereby removing the complication of coordinating a bunch of rideshare vehicles, but it lacks a certain pizzazz that you're probably going to want on your big night.
As stated above, charter buses are typically used for long-distance trips. If you're just driving around Austin going from bar to bar, a charter bus isn't the type of vehicle you want to use for your transportation.
It's big and bulky, which is fine, but it doesn't really "fit" with a lot of the places you're probably going to visit the night of your bachelor party (i.e., bars, dive or otherwise).
Charter buses are a great option for transportation on the day of your wedding, but not for your bachelor party. They just don't scream "party," and while you absolutely can use one for your bachelor party, it doesn't mean you should use one.
What Are Other Options Besides Charter Buses?
As mentioned, a charter bus isn't really your best option when it comes to modes of transportation for your bachelor party. While they are perfect for corporate travel (and sports teams), they don't really set the right mood for a bachelor party. Unless you're traveling across the state, it's best to steer clear of charter buses.
You do have the option to split your group up among a bunch of rideshare vehicles like Uber or Lyft. That will be affordable and mean that everyone has to be responsible for their own ride, but it does mean splitting your friends up on your big night.
That can be alright if you're just bar-hopping downtown, but if you're going to places all over the city, then it defeats the purpose of gathering a group of your best friends together.
The best option for your bachelor party is to book a party bus. Not only will you get to keep your entire group together between stops, but you'll be able to keep the party going without any breaks! A nightclub on wheels, a party bus offers amenities that you won't find in any other modes of transportation. Stereo systems with bluetooth hookups, flat-screen TVs, karaoke, wet bars, neon lights, you name it! A party bus probably has it.
It's such a growing industry that more and more companies are finding new things to add to their buses, so do some research and find the perfect bus for you. You'll also be able to bring your own alcohol and leave it on the bus so it's waiting for you when you come back.

Ah, dive bars. The esteemed hole-in-the-wall establishments. Reviled by some and adored by many, dive bars are their own breed of bar.
Austin, TX is home to many of these fine locales, and each one has their own distinct flair. But which ones should you visit while you're in Austin? We've got the answers for you right here.
What Is an Austin Dive Bar?
Dive bars have the extra dose of personality that other bars don't. When you go to a dive bar, you're guaranteed to run into regulars.
You'll see, dive bars may not look like much on the inside, but they have established a stable clientele that ensures you'll find a sense of community in the bar you visit.
Other things you'll find? Pool tables, jukeboxes, oddball décor and dirty bathrooms. That last one isn't exactly a positive aspect, but the quality of the bathrooms has become a staple of dive bars everywhere.
A few things to remember about dive bars:
The three above points are reasons some people don't prefer to visit dive bars, but many would argue that those "negative" qualities are part of their charm!
There is a wonderful unpretentious quality to dive bars that many people find endearing, so if you are one of those people then keep on reading!
How Can a Dive Bar Tour Improve Your Bachelor Party?
Visiting a few dive bars can add a little bit of character to your bachelor party (not that you don't have enough already).
It can also be a fun change of scenery from the formal wineries and casual breweries that people tend to visit on their big weekends. Of course, when you go to a dive bar you're going to get something very casual, but that's kind of the point, isn't it?
If you've got a whole weekend planned, and one of those nights is spent on 6th Street, consider switching it up a bit and doing a dive bar tour. Look at it this way: everyone goes to 6th Street when they come to Austin.
If you're coming into town and you tell a local "Let's go to 6th Street!", they're probably going to roll their eyes.
However, if you opt to do a dive bar tour, then that brings something fresh and exciting to the proceedings.
The added bonus of dive bars is that there are plenty of them which even locals haven't discovered yet, so you could easily find a diamond in the rough that most people haven't caught on to yet.
How Can Ninja Buses Help?
Austin is home to dozens of dive bars. Whether you're north, east, south, west or central, there's always a dive bar near you.
But which ones are the must-visit bars? Here at Ninja Buses, we know all the best dive bars to visit in town.
In fact, one of our favorite dive bars is located just five minutes from our garage! Located in central Austin on the west side of 5th street, The Mean-Eyed Cat is a Johnny Cash-themed dive bar that also doubles as a satellite location for Stubb's BBQ.
In the same area (on the other side of Mopac/Loop 1) you'll find Deep Eddy Cabaret, which has been opened for more than 60 years!
Moving to the north side of town, it's imperative that you visit Lala's Little Nugget, which is decorated like Christmas all year round, and Workhorse Bar with its tree stump chairs.
Heading on over to the East side, you'll find a plethora of houses that have been converted into bars. The legendary East side is changing fast, but you'll still find a good bit of old-fashioned dive bars like La Perla and its friendly staff and Shangri-La with its enormous outside patio.
Not all of the best dive bars are centered in one location, so you're going to want to travel around the city to hit all of the hot spots.
Ninja Buses can help you do that by renting you one of our party buses! Not only does this allow you to keep everyone in your group together from bar to bar, but it also ensures that you're able to keep the party going between stops.
Rent a party bus, which comes packed with tons of cool amenities like speaker systems with Bluetooth capabilities, flat-screen TVs, Nintendos and more!

Now that you've decided to do a brewery bus tour in Austin after reading why you should, it's time to decide which breweries you would like to visit.
There are tons of breweries in the state of Texas, but Austin has become one of the top destinations for people wanting to get a taste of the special kind of beer produced in the capital.
Why is Austin the perfect spot for a brewery tour? The variety, of course! Even if you're a casual beer drinker, you're bound to find something to enjoy at one of the many breweries in the area.
Top Brewery Destinations in Austin
Breweries like Lazarus Brewing Co., Blue Owl Brewing and Zilker Brewing Company are all fantastic. If you prefer not well-known ones, not only in the heart of downtown Austin but also on the north side of town located the breweries that most people forget about. Just north of Highway 183 are dozens of wonderful breweries like Austin Beerworks, Circle Brewing Company and Adelbert's Brewery.
If you're in the mood for some food, head on over to the Arboretum area, where you'll find the restaurant/craft brewery hybrid NXNW.
Lest you think you have to stay in Austin to visit all of the best breweries, never fear. There are plenty of breweries on the outskirts of town.
One of the most popular tours in Austin is to head over to Lake Travis and visit the Infamous Brewing Company and the Oasis Texas Brewing Company before heading on a party barge on the lake. So rather than do a full day of 3 or 4 breweries, cut it in half and do 2 breweries and a boat party.
Finally, you can visit the Hill Country, which is primarily known for wineries, it doesn't skimp on the breweries either. Heading to the Hill Country for your brewery tour is especially beneficial if you are in a party bus because it means your trip will last longer.
If you're booking a party bus, you want to make sure you get some quality time in the vehicle, otherwise what's the point?
In Driftwood and Dripping Springs, you can find Vista Brewing and the Twisted X Brewing Company, respectively. In between stops, you can even stop at the famous Salt Lick BBQ, one of the most popular barbecue joints in Texas!
Austin Brewery Bus Tour Experiences
Brewery tour is one of the most popular events for bachelor parties in Austin. Why is that? Well, there's a certain community aspect, which is inherent to the brewery world that transfers over to its customers. It almost feels like a second home.
When you go on a brewery tour, it is important to select breweries that fit your group. Your two main options are going to be the standard breweries and the microbreweries.
The beers at most of the Austin breweries are connected to the city. Austin's unofficial slogan is "Keep Austin Weird" and that slogan applies to the beer produced here as well. Many people prefer the casual atmosphere of brewery tours over winery tours, which can sometimes be considered more formal. That doesn't mean you should show up at a brewery inebriated (or plan to get inebriated during your tour), but breweries are definitely a little more relaxed than wineries.
What Can Ninja Buses Offer
Ninja Buses can help you whether you're a local or not. You'd be surprised at how many locals don't know the ins and outs of the brewery community in Austin.
If you book a party bus with Ninja Buses, our sales consultant will be able to help you plan your route. After a brief discussion, we can get a feel for which breweries you're likely to enjoy the most and make it happen for you.
If you've got a group that is larger than 10 people, a party bus is one of your only options for keeping your whole group together between stops. Plus, party buses just look cool.

We all know that a party bus is the best mode of transportation for you to go on your winery tour in Austin, but how do you know which wineries you want to go to? Texas is a very large state, so you have plenty of options when it comes to places to visit.
There is one area of Texas that is the most popular place to visit for wine enthusiasts, though, and that is what we will be discussing here.
Top Destinations for a Texas Winery Tour
While Austin does contain plenty of wineries, the top destination for winery tours in Texas is the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Comprised of cities like Fredericksburg, Dripping Springs and Driftwood, the Hill Country features some of Texas' top wineries.
In fact, some of the wineries in the Hill Country are considered the best in the country. Not bad for a state whose wine industry was once considered sub-par!
The most popular wineries of the region would have to be Becker Vineyards, Duchman Family Winery and Pedernales Cellars, these seem to be the most widely known Texas wineries in the country.
Don't feel like you have to restrict yourself to the most popular wineries, though, as there are a few diamonds in the rough to be found in the Hill Country.We would recommend:
The best part about doing winery tours out in the Hill Country is that there are plenty of other great spots to visit between stops.
In Fredericksburg, you can visit the historic Main Street, which is home to dozens of adorable mom n' pop shops and quaint restaurants. If you're booking a weekend trip, be sure to stay in a bed and breakfast, as Fredericksburg is famous for them.
Driftwood is home to the legendary Salt Lick BBQ, arguably the best barbecue in the state (there are plenty of arguments to be made when it comes to the best Texas barbecue, however).
Best Austin Wine Bus Tour to Fit Your Taste
To find the best winery tour to fit your taste, it's really going to depend on the types of wines you like. Whether you are a light drinker or a heavy drinker, every winery will have a little something for everybody.
When you walk in, you have the option of either touring the winery, enjoying a tasting or simply purchasing a glass of wine at the bar and enjoying the scenery. You can make your tour be pretty much anything you want it to be, but we definitely recommend enjoying a tasting to get the most out of your trip.
Most winery tour trips will consist of visits to three or four wineries. If you don't want to do tastings at each one, you can mix it up a bit and plan what you will do at each one.
A good way is to do a full-blown tour at your first stop when everyone is at their most sober, then do a tasting at your second stop and, finally, purchasing a glass (or two) of wine at your third and fourth stops. This way of doing winery tours has proven to be the most successful when it comes to ensuring that everyone in your group has a great time.
Of course, you don't have to do it this way. If you want to do a tasting at each stop then go ahead! If you only want to visit two wineries because you want to do a tour and a tasting at each one, that is okay too! There is no right or wrong way about winery tours. As long as everyone has a good time, that is all matters.

When you're considering travel options for your bachelor party, there are a plethora of options to choose from. The most economical route would be to use a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft, but if you want to travel in style, then a limousine or a party bus rental is going to be your best option. Limousines have long been the go-to option for classy travel, but party buses have risen in popularity in recent years. Everyone knows what they're going to get with a limousine. However, not everyone knows what they're going to get with a party bus.
The main advantage of renting a limousine is that it will be more cost effective. It will still be about as much per person as renting a party bus, but because limousines are meant to hold about 10 people, the pricing evens out. If you put 10 people on a party bus you'll be paying a lot more per person since the total cost is higher.
Limousines have been a staple of high-end group travel for decades and they are instantly recognizable. If you want to impress passersby, then you can't go wrong with a limo. Typically associated with events ranging from red carpet events in Hollywood to high school proms, limos have been a public mainstay for a reason.
Limousines are also good if you want privacy. If you're traveling with a smaller group (or perhaps just your significant other), then the tinted windows of a limo can provide the perfect amount of privacy (and in some cases, an aura of mystery) for you. This is preferred by some customers, and if you are one of them then a limo is probably the way to go.
With a limousine, you'll be fairly limited in the number of people you can bring with you. Most limousines have a capacity of 12, though you can find some stretch limousines that allow for up to 16 people. You also want to consider the space inside a limousine. Limousines are low to the ground and if you fill them to capacity, then there won't really be any space to move around. It can also start to feel a bit cramped.
Limousines are good for transportation from Point A to Point B, but if you want to spend the majority of your night in the vehicle, it won't be the most comfortable option. You're typically going to be seated low to the ground with limited mobility, and if you do decide to move around you'll be crawling over the other passengers to get where you need to go.
Limos are often seen as the formal way to travel as well, so if you're going on a pub crawl or to a gentlemen's club, a limo may not exactly be the look you are going for. Plus, some might view going in a limousine to be a little too obvious. After all, doesn't everyone travel in a limousine for their big bash?
We've covered the reasons you should choose a party bus before, but let's go into a bit more detail with the pros and cons of choosing a party bus:
Let's start with the main advantage: you've got more space! If you have 20-30 people in your group, your choice is to rent one party bus or rent multiple limousines. Renting a party bus allows you to keep everyone in your group together so everyone can enjoy the party, but it also acts as a nightclub on wheels. There is tons of space to move around the vehicle (though not when it is moving, of course).
Party buses will also feature cool amenities like flat-screen TVs, music streaming capabilities, video game systems, karaoke and more! Some limousines will have TV screens or neon lights and most will have a wet bar or a place to chill your champagne, but a party bus has all of that and more.
Many customers' deciding factor in a party bus vs. a limousine is price, and in that regard party buses have limousines beat. While the overall price of a party bus will likely be greater than that of a limousine, it winds up being less per person since you can fit up to 30 people in most party buses.
Everything is in a name: a party bus is meant to be for a party. This doesn't mean you can't use a party bus for any event you wish, but if you were to go to, let's say, a funeral in a party bus, then some people may find your choice of vehicle to be a bit tacky. Sometimes a party bus isn't the best choice of vehicle for the occasion. A good rule of thumb? If it's not a party (of sorts), then don't get a party bus.
If you're not planning on being on the road for very long, a party bus isn't really the best option for you either. The whole point of renting a party bus is to spend time partying on it, so if you're simply trying to get from Point A to Point B (and they aren't very far apart), then spending the money on a party bus is a little pointless. Why spend money on it if you're not going to enjoy it!

One of the questions party bus companies get all the time is "where do we go?" The purpose of a party bus is to provide transportation for your group, but it's also to give your group a place to party while you're in transit to your destination(s). It is important to balance out your itinerary so that you're not going to places that are right next to each other. If you do that, then you won't be spending any time on your party bus!
Why Use a Party Bus?
As we've covered before, the main benefit of using a party bus for your event is that it keeps everyone together. Sure, you could rent a bunch of Ubers and travel that way, but where is the fun in that? Keep everyone together so that the party never stops, and you'll be a winner in everyone's eyes.
A rideshare service isn't going to offer you all of the high-end amenities that a party bus can, either. if you book a party bus, you'll have access to a superior sound system, TVs, video games, karaoke and much, much more! A party bus is essentially a night club on wheels, so the fun is unlimited!
Where Can You Go on a Party Bus?
There are tons of places in Austin that you can visit on a party bus, but we're going to give you a few examples of the types of places you can stop by.
Austin just so happens to be the next door neighbor of Texas Hill Country, which means you have a plethora of wineries that you can visit. Winery tours are becoming more and more popular in the area, and since most of them are about a 45-minute drive outside of city limits (though Austin does feature some notable wineries), a party bus is the perfect way to get the party started.
If wine isn't your thing, then consider a brewery tour! Breweries (and cideries!) happen to be sprinkled all throughout Austin, so you can make a trip that starts in central Austin, then moves north and then down South before you return to your starting point.
The most common request of a party bus company's services is to take the customers bar-hopping. Think of it as a night out on the town, but you've got a fancy ride from place to place that you're also allowed to drink on.
Whether you're a large corporation or a small mom and pop shop, a party bus is a great way to bring your team together. You don't even have to go anywhere! So often team building outings are spent in hotel meeting rooms. Why not use a room on wheels? A party bus can be adapted to fit any kind of team building exercises you have in mind. With a party bus you can use the TVs (if equipped) to play videos or show presentations.
Football Games and Other Sporting Events
If you live in or are visiting Austin in the fall, then chances are you're going to go to at least one football game. If you've got a tailgate party planned, book a party bus to park outside so you can go relax if it gets too hot. Then, when you and your crew are ready to head to the game, hop on the bus and you'll be on the way! The best part is that the party doesn't stop once you get on the bus. It is a party bus, after all.
