We really love our jobs. When your office is a tie-dye painted bus and you get to enjoy stunning views of Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsulas all day, it’s not hard to get out of bed in the morning to get to work. Our clients only make things better for us, as they’re always well up for some wine, laughter, and adventure in Traverse City. While it may look like a party on wheels (and for the guests, it certainly is), our drivers actually take their jobs surprisingly serious. We know that you could have planned your vacation just about anywhere, but you chose Traverse City. It means a lot to us to have you come visit our hometown, so there’s a bit of pressure to make your experience as pleasurable and perfect as possible.
As a result, we always keep an eye on our TripAdvisor reviews to make sure our guests are having the incredible experience they signed up for. So, how are we doing? Let’s hear from a few of our valued guests.
“We can’t say enough about how great this tour/party bus experience has been for us! We’ve used them 2 years in a row for our annual New Year’s trip. Last year we did a wine tour and this year a pub crawl. The owner’s Tim and Jody are the absolute nicest people, we had them both as drivers and they couldn’t have been nicer. – Kelli D.”
Kelli and her crew (all twenty-seven of them!) were one of our first tours in 2017. It’s one of the biggest thrills for us to have our same guests come back to visit again and again. The first time you come see us, you’re a guest. The second time, you’re a friend. Thanks, Kelli!
“We planned an evening trip from 8:00-12:00 PM. This is the only company that offers that which was great because it worked with our schedule. Luke was our driver and he actually picked us up early so we could get a head start to make it to the places that were closing a bit early. He also suggested where we should go since we only planned the first two stops which was perfect for our group. It was a lot of fun! – Jade G.”
Yes, Jade. Luke is quite literally the coolest dude around. And as far as the scheduling goes, this is actually something we hear quite a bit. We know you have busy schedules, so we start our tours earlier in the day than most other companies so you can enjoy your tour at a relaxed pace and still make it to your afternoon activities without any worries or running late. There’s so much to do in Traverse City and we want to help make sure you can squeeze it all in.
“Stacie (our driver) was amazing. She was funny, pleasant, always ready to get the door for us when we were going in and out of bars, and she never for a second got annoyed with us, even though we got a little unruly towards the end of the night:) I will absolutely use TC Wine and Beer Tours again, it made my buddy’s birthday epic! – Beau W.”
Stacie, like all of our drivers, knows that the key to an exceptional wine or beer tasting tour isn’t just about the drinks. It’s about the collective experience of taking a luxurious tour in one of the most beautiful places on the planet. When you put the guests in control of their evening, they have an inherent knack for having a great time. We’re here to facilitate your experience in any way that we can.
These reviews give us excellent feedback about what our guests like about our tours, which allows us to provide even better service to other guests down the road. Our relationship with our guests is exactly that; a relationship. Communication, as Dr. Phil or any book written on the topic will tell you, is key to any good relationship. That’s why we value your feedback so much. Thank you for helping us improve on doing the job we love, as well as helping us to ensure our guests have an incredible wine and beer tasting experience in Traverse City.
If you’re thinking we just cherry-picked these kind reviews, please head over to TripAdvisor page to see what over 300 guests had to say about us. Suffice it to say, all the kind words still make us blush.
