Eight years ago, it started with one van and one man who knew the tour bus industry.

Van Man Charters, based in Butte County, uniquely serves the California North Valley from Sacramento to Redding and beyond.  Business started in early 2008, with a focus on catering to groups with 5 star service, and specializing in wedding shuttle service, local winery tours, and day trips. Casino visits and venue services have since developed, and so have professional associations with local tour companies and travel directors. We regularly serve the transportation needs of Laxson Auditorium performers and Sierra Nevada “beer camp” visitors, and we’re proud to be considered by some as unofficial ambassadors for Chico. Van Man Charters‘ reputation is excellent, and growing.

We can provide booking for all kinds of groups, events and occasions, with 14 passenger van, 23 passenger minibus, and 47 passenger tour bus vehicles. The van is licensed for statewide travel and the larger coaches are interstate licensed.

Van Man Charters is a proud sponsor of  Chico Rage basketball team,   Native Sons of the Golden West annual Beer Fest in Oroville,  Wheeled Migration, and League of Women Voters annual wine tasting event in Chico.
