While it is easy to spot some of Kingdom Chauffeured Limousine Services' fleet of vehicles—such as a stretch limo transporting a bridal party or headed on a tour of wine country—some of their most impressive cars fit in any old parking space. The drivers spend most of their days catering to regular business travelers, ferrying them around town in the less elongated, yet more pronounced, style of a Mercedes Benz S550, Cadillac Escalade ESV, or Rolls Royce Phantom.
Most of the vehicles have tinted privacy glass for passengers, as well as pristinely maintained leather seats. Additionally, the stretch limousines boast privacy dividers, a premium sound system, and room for up to ten passengers or one extremely happy passenger and all of the stuffed animals he won at the carnival.
Aside from a coat of green paint on the outside, Capitol City Crawler’s fleet of eco-friendly buses don’t look like all that different from other buses on the road. Look inside, though, and you’ll find what is essentially a club on wheels. There’s seating for 24 passengers, and the seats are arranged against the walls so there’s plenty of room for dancing, too. Each bus comes equipped with a bar, a thumping sound system, LED lighting, and an inflatable doorman. The buses are popular for bachelor and bachelorette parties, but they’re also suitable for kids’ birthday parties, brewery tours, and wine-tasting tours in the Hill Country.
The Walker family has worked in the transportation business since 1963, when it opened a six-car rental operation in San Antonio. In 2006, the family sold the rental company—which had since grown into an international enterprise—to focus exclusively on its Texas-based limousine and shuttle services. Abbey Walker Executive Cars & Limousines's current fleet includes classic and stretch Lincoln Town Cars in black, white, and phosphorescent glitter-green. Groups can also cover ground in vans or buses equipped with luggage racks and wheelchair lifts. Uniformed drivers chauffeur groups on pre-planned tours of Texas wine country, complete with restaurant reservations and hypoallergenic wine-stomping stilts.
