We had a great experience renting the Malibu westfalia pop top van!! The van was amazing and so fun to drive! We were living the CA dream. The owners were very nice and accommodating when we had a misunderstanding about the time to pick up the van. So thankful for this experience and can’t wait to do it again!

I felt so lucky to have had this unique, one of a kind, road trip experience! Everywhere I drove, people waved, smiled, honked, gave me thumbs up and even offered to buy it! It was a real people pleaser! What better way to spread joy to the world during the holiday season than to happily cruise along the streets in a classic vw bus singing your old favorite songs and visiting friends!!!

Amazing! This was the best decision I could have made. The owner Bill is a great guy and so helpful. I was concerned about a route I was taking and called Bill first thing in the morning. He was so reassuring and even offered advice to a better route that lead us to a beautiful Dutch city. This is just one example of their great service. I would highly recommend renting one of these amazing busses. They are such a head turner and so fun to drive. I assure you it will be a journey you won’t forget. I will absolutely be renting from them again!

We rented a bus in order to go cruising up PCH after our wedding, and it made our wedding day so unique and lovely. This was such a fun experience! Bill was extremely friendly and helpful. Our vehicle was absolutely gorgeous, well-maintained, and reliable. I will

We just finished a trip from LA to San Francisco in 5 nights with our 2 children (aged 8 & 11). It was an amazing trip and totally lived up to all our dreams. Our lives are so hectic now so to slow down, physically and metaphorically, in a 1979 Bay Window is such a valuable and unforgettable thing in our lives now. Instead of screen time, there was volleyball at Fernwood and on the beach. Instead of email, there was reading in our double bunker, and writing in our journals. Instead of coffees on the way to work in the car, there was toasting marshmallows on an open fire. Thank you Bill for your wise words and an opportunity to do this (my dream since childhood), and thank you Christian for coming and picking up our Kombi from our hotel in the Haight and the advice about good stops to do on our journey (of which we did all and loved). It was an amazing holiday and well worth the trip from Australia to do this incredibly special time with each other. I will never forget it. I’d encourage everyone to do this - slow down, drive at top speed of 50mph with the wind coming through your triangle window whilst you look at the Pacific. Just do it.

We had so much fun in our VW Bus!! We cannot recommend this trip highly enough. We drove it to Joshua Tree, Disneyland, San Diego... everywhere! It's a great size that still can be driven & parked like normal size vehicle, but designed so well inside to be a great camper too. Everyone we worked with or met with at Vintage Surfari was really great too - very informative and nice. We already want to go back and do this again!

Our experience renting the 'Malibu' VW Bay Window: Westfalia Pop-Top was awesome! Bill & Ann were great to work with both before our trip, answering questions and concerns, offering alternatives to some of our plans which helped us with sleeping arrangements for a toddler, and then greeting us upon pick up and showing us everything we needed to know to have a safe and enjoyable trip in the camper. The trip was everything we hoped and exceeded all our expectations. Would definitely recommend to anyone seeking a similar experience and would do it again for sure.

Bill and Diane were fantastic and super helpful! The VW Bus was beyond excellent and in pristine condition. I was impressed with the mechanical condition of the vehicle as well. Thank you both for a smooth and wonderful experience. I can't wait to follow up with you and do this again with my family! I recommend Vintage Safari Wagons as a must try experience. Just make sure to take care of your bus so others can enjoy for years to come.
