I am a member of Bay Tours Travel club. They offer day trips and trips away. Their brochure is put out twice a year and involves many choices. I do day trips which involve visiting local business, or visit gardens and homesteads. The progressive lunches are very good at good local restaurants or wineries. Then able to enjoy a special meal and some wine as we are not driving. The trips away which cover a few days always visit many different interesting places in the chosen area as well calling into places of interest on the way. The accommodation and restaurants are always very interesting and with good meals.

The driver and host for the trip are extremely kind and capable and look after everyone very well.
