About David Blank
We are prolific travelers and professional tour operators with 28+ years experience guiding international adventure travelers from Alaska through Panama. We love exploring the world and meeting new people. Claudia is a Maritime Attorney and we both speak Spanish and English fluently. Between us we’ve traveled to, through or in 50 countries on 4 continents, 49 US States, and 7 Canadian Provinces. We currently own two tour businesses: Destination Drivers is a wine tour company offering private wine tours in Lodi, Sacramento, Amador and El Dorado Counties. Happy Tails Canine Adventure Tours is for people who want to experience the world with their best friend. One of my most incredible experiences was South Africa in 1993. I spent a month there by myself hitch hiking all over the country, and because the people were the friendliest, most genuine hosts I had ever experienced, never paid for a place to stay and hardly a meal. That experience inspired me to become a guide and show people amazing experiences with high levels of customer service. My hobbies are fishing, surfing, hiking, snorkeling, bird watching, reading, connecting to and sharing nature with others. I also love dog training, skiing, paragliding, motorcycling, staring at a nest of leaf cutter ants, helping sloths cross the road, and sending tour clients home with a smile on their face! One Amazing Thing I've Seen or Done was after spending several hours watching the Aurora Borealis, I fell asleep in a Canadian Meadow. I awoke surrounded by a herd of elk during the Rut (mating season) and spent the next terrifying hour watching a big Bull fight off challengers from all sides while his harem grazed a few feet from my sleeping bag.

Why David Blank chose Lodi
We are almost always available. We live here and are happy to share our general living space with considerate guests, share meals, offer advice on things to do, and enjoy an evening on the lake. Our place is clean, quiet and close to everything at a great price. Plus we're dog friendly (with prior approval).
What makes this Condo unique

Lodi is an easy city to get around. Wine tasting is a popular activity for tourists and locals alike and we offer private wine tasting tours for only $35/hr for 1-5 people. You can book on our website (Website hidden by Airbnb) and we give all AiirBnB guests 1 free hour when they book five or more hours. There is also Uber and Lyft but they are very limited in the area and so ok for an occasional ride but not great for wine tasting due to long waits and low availability.
