    This past summer I organized a trip to the Long Island Vineyards for my birthday. We took a 55 passenger limobus from Five Towns Limo. John was our driver. He was great! He picked us up at a train station where we all left our cars for the day. The bus was BEAUTIFUL! It was clean, cool (it was hot that day) and looked brand new! My husband especially liked the sound system! He was able to sync his ipod through the speakers where he blasted music the entire trip! We danced the whole day! (Yes we really danced as the bus drove on the highway!) He brought us to great vineyards and even suggested one to have lunch at. There we sat with our lunches as we listed to live music. The entire day was fantastic! The bus company and the driver exceeded my expectations!! I would totally recommend FIVE TOWNS LIMOUSINE to anyone!!
