Christmas 2016

Dear Bill,

Thank you again for your kind diligence and assistance during this rental experience.

The boys and myself crafted wonderful memories all along our trip together, thanks to the scenery but also the uniqueness of living in an iconic vintage camper.

Your truly amicable attention to people's satisfaction set you apart from the average business owner.

Thank you so very much.

Philippe and the boys.

Diane and Bill,

Just wanted to send you a little something to thank you for a great week. It's strange (and amazing) how you can start a week with people whom you've never met and after a week together emerge like friends you've had for years. Looking forward to the next trip already. I know that I'll be back year after year for more adventures with you guys. I know I kept telling everyone "I'm no artist" and I'm really not, so it's ironic that I'm sending you a piece of original artwork that I created to commemorate our little trip...

Weekend Getaway

We love VW Surfari! Bill the owner is super friendly, professional and honest and his buses are in amazing condition. We rented a 79 vw bus for a weekend getaway and had a great time.

Nostalgic VDub Road Trip

We rented a VW wagon from Vintage Surfari Wagons this past week. The wagon was in great condition and carefully restored so that it maintained its classic charm. The van was equipped with everything you would need for a little cozy getaway. The owner, Bill Staggs, was very helpful and gave us great ideas for mini vacations around California. We will definitely rent from Vintage Surfari Wagons again!

Buses By The Bridge VW Camp Tour

I just got back from my second trip with Vintage Surfari Wagons. Another perfect trip! Bill and Diane are amazing people and they have a first class operation. The buses are great, every detail is well thought out and they offer great advice and support regarding the vans. If you want a fun vacation that will give you an experience you can't get anyplace else - go with Surfari Wagons.

Epic California Road Trip

Just came back from a 2 week VW Westphalia tour of California. We had an incredible camping trip in our VW. Bill and Diane Staggs were very patient with us. They showed us how easy it was to operate and drive their camper. We followed the coast all the way to San Francisco, then on to Lake Tahoe and then the drive south thru and along the Sierra Nevada mountains. We had so many memorable stops along the way. What a beautiful and relaxing way to see California. We will do this again Bill and Diane. Thanks so much for helping us with our adventure. Next time we'll take the kids!

Bill & Diane,

Thank you so so much for everything! You are unbelievably hospitable & kind! We cannot thank you enough for making our road trip dream become a reality. The memories we made traveling with Ala Lani will last a lifetime. If you find yourselves in Maine ever, you know who to look up. Valentine Mimosas for you two - from us.

Love Scott & Shelby

Not All Who Wander Are Lost!

"My husband and I have travelled with Diane and Bill on two occasions. They make the trip so easy; just show up, transfer your luggage to the van and off you go on your adventure. The vans are expertly decorated (Diane's an interior decorator among other things) and the vans are well supplied with all the things you would need to cook your meals - even down to a French press for making your coffee. They provide the bedding, towels and even a care package with goodies in it for snacking along the way. The vans are very well maintained. 

Sometimes they plan caravan trips that are for 3-5 days - if you have any reservations about renting a van to go off on your own, we strongly recommend you go on one of these trips. Or if you don't want to think about cooking or where to go, these caravan trips would be ideal. They cook most all the meals and do not skimp on the ingredients. The meals are gourmet and they also provide all the beer and wine you could want. It's simple as show up, drive, park and just about all your needs are met. We have met people from all over the world and country while traveling in these caravans. We give them 5-STARS and recommend them to anyone."

Desert Wildflower VW Camp Tour

"I just returned from a four-day trip with Bill and Diane (and their amazing helpers). They organized a California wildflower guided tour and led the group all over Southern California... Their VW Vans are amazing, each with it's own unique character and personality... Because this was a special guided tour, Diane cooked up amazing breakfasts and dinners, we had beautiful snack boxes in the vans and they led us to great campsites and fun adventures."
