Typically meet them there unless they are relocation buyers and they don't already have a car-full of children - if there's room in my car, I want to give them the guided tour!

It really depends on the situation and the clients. If we meet at the office first then usually I drive. If we meet out somewhere or we have other places to go after, than drive seperately.

It depends on a few factors, but normally in town we go separately.  We've spent an entire day in the car with a client looking at acreages across a 100 miles or so radius.  It was just easier that way.  I brought a cooler with snacks and drink knowing we had a lot to visit while he was in the state that day.

Depending on whether I know them or not determines if they ride with me or drive. I encourage them to ride with me  if I have been working with them for sometime. I feel riding with me provides them insight on our area. They can ask me questions they normally wouldn't think to ask (builds credibility).

I do both.  When a couple has children, I like to have them follow in their own car. 

In general, when there is more than one buyer, it can be really good to have them in a separate car.  Frees them up to talk openly about properties they have seen, going from one to another.
