This is the second wine/beer/spirits tour my wife and I have taken in the Traverse City area and both times we have used Traverse City Wine & Beer Tours. Both times they have been excellent! The price is very fair and they know some great places to as well as they are willing to change places on the fly when it suites the group. Stacey was our driver this go-around and we wound up having a private tour this time rather than a group tour, which was our fist experience. This was nice as we could move at our pace rather than a group’s pace and were able to hit more places in the allotted time. Anyone thinking of planing a wine/beer/spirits tour in the Traverse City/Leelanau area, I would highly recommend giving Tim & Jodi at Traverse City Wine & Beer Tours a call to schedule your tour.
Lori was our driver and tour guide. She had the best customer service we could ask for! So fun and nice to be around.
Jody was great with follow up leading up to our pickup the day of the event. Luke was our driver for our tour on Old Mission… he made the trip fun and always went into the wineries before us to let them know we were there, a nice personal touch! Our group is looking forward to planning another trip in the future and we’ll certainly book with Traverse City Wine and Beer Tours again!
We had an absolutely wonderful time on our tour. Jody and Tim were so very considerate and patient with us. A group of 5 of us drove in about 5 hours away that morning for a Bachelorette weekend. Our main goal was to do the winery tour that weekend. With the snow and traffic conditions, we ended up being late for our pick up. But they were absolutely gracious and understanding and took the time to ensure we joined the rest of the group. The bus ride was seamless, the wineries were a delight. Coming from California, with Napa nearby, I was not sure what to expect with the Traver City wineries. But the wineries were quaint, everybody was a delight to spend time with, and the scenery was beautiful, especially in the snow. Thank you for a wonderful trip!
I have been going up to Traverse City since I have been a kid and have had a ton of good times, but going on the Traverse City Wine and Beer Tour was the best, most memorable, time that I have ever had! I all I can say is, Just Do It! Our tour guides Jody, Jody, and Scott were absolutely a riot and than there was the rest of us in the back of the bus. My new friends on the bus were some of the nicest people to have met and go touring Traverse Cities Wineries. We all had a blast and didn’t want our tour to end! Thanks again Traverse City Wine and Beer Tours for one of the best times that I have ever had vacationing!
What a pleasure it was to be driven door-to-door to the best of Leelanau Pennisula’s wineries! Not having to worry about who was driving let everyone in our party to enjoy themselves without worry. Our driver, John Fahey, was so knowledgeable, courteous, and friendly! I would highly recommend this tour company for a relaxing, memorable time! Thank you Traverse City Wine and Beer Tours!
I surprised my girlfriend for her birthday with a trip to Traverse City and this was one of the best parts! The staff was SO awesome and they even have a license for you to bring booze on the tour with you! Excellent wineries and beautiful scenery. We had so much fun and during the tour. We can’t wait to come back!!!
We had an absolutely amazing time with Traverse City Wine and Beer Tours. Our driver, Brian, was so much fun and made everything that much better. I will definitely be using this company again when my husband and I come up for an anniversary wine tour weekend. HIGHLY recommended!
We had a great time with 3 other couples! We went to 2 wineries and then back into TC to the Filling Station Brewery for a pizza lunch. The weather was great that day and we had the right amount of time to do some tastings at the wineries and enjoy a glass of wine and the views before it was time to get back on the bus. Our driver was super and the bus was neat and comfortable for the ride. We would highly recommend TC Wine and Beer Tours and plan on going back again soon!
Fabulous tour company. Our driver, Lori, was exceptional. Booking process with Jody was excellent. All our winery needs were met! We had a group of 12 and reservations were made in advance at some of the wineries which was awesome. Thank you so much for making it a wonderful day. Thanks for putting up with us Lori, LOL.
Our group had a great experience with Traverse City Wine and Beer tours! Our driver, Tim was very accommodating and fun! He’s a great photographer too! We will definitely be using this company again.
I planned a bachelorette party for my best friend and knew we wanted to do a winery tour the weekend we were there. I had been comparing companies to use for the tour and so couldn’t be more happy with the decision to use Traverse City Wine and Beer.
Not only were their rates more than fair, they were even better than some of their competitors. I personally worked with Jody making my reservation and I loved how helpful she was in suggesting wineries to visit since I had never been to the area before. My favorite part was that she made her way to one of the wineries we stopped at to introduce herself and see how we were doing. Seriously, the nicest woman and that gesture did not go unnoticed.
Our driver was Brian and he was also fantastic and in such a great mood the entire time. Being with 11, 20/30 something women who are singing and screaming at the top of their lungs I’m sure is annoying to most, but he embraced it. He was awesome to play whatever music we wanted, and while we didn’t come prepared with an auxiliary code to play our own music, he was more than accommodating with playing music we liked. Appreciated him taking group photos for us too! We also enjoyed that he chatted with us at the wineries and was just an all-around nice guy.
I hope to make a visit up to Traverse City again, and if I do a winery tour I will 100% use this company again.
Not a bad thing to say about their customer service or business.
3of us took a private tour of 3 wineries and 2 breweries in the greater Traverse City area. What a wonderful time! Luke, our driver was very knowledgeable and tailored our tour just to our tastes. What a great way to go so you don’t have to worry about drinking and driving! What a variety of unique places we stopped & sampled. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Highly recommend Traverse City Wine Tours–VIP treatment! 6 stars out of 5!!! ******
Thank you Tim, Jodi and Lori for making my sister-in-laws bachelorette party a blast! They’re the nicest people to work with. I can’t wait to take another tour. We rented a ford transit van for 4 hours yesterday and it was unbelievably fun! We visited 3 wineries and a distillery. Lori, our driver, was professional, courteous and so much fun! 5 stars, all the way!!
Great experience. Our group of six had a fantastic time visiting TC vineyards and a local micro brewery to boot. Mary was awesome and took great care of us, and the other seven people on the party bus (as it became not long after the first stop). Bower’s Harbor was the best stop, with the biggest taste pours, and the Mango Cider was seriously yummy… Other’s should take note!
The three of us went on the Leelanau Peninsula wine trip & we had a GREAT time! Our tour guide Brian was awesome! He was fun, told us interesting facts about the city & even helped load our purchases in the vehicle! We will definitely be back in the future to experience the Old Mission tour! Thanks for a great time!
Such a fun driver, arrived on time and very accommodating. Definitely recommend them to anyone going to TC for a wine tour! Super easy to work with in booking the trip and they answered all my questions. All around a great experience!
A group of 9 of us girls did the 4 hour wine tour. What a fun time we had and would totally recommend this group to anyone! Thank you Jody and Lori for being so accomodating to all of us. We really appreciate your hard work and customer service!!
This was the PERFECT party bus for a bachelorette party of 14. Our driver Lori was so sweet, we loved having her drive us around Leelenau for 4 hours. We were able to hit 3 wineries and a distillery, and we loved every one of them! The wine tour could not have been any better!
This was perfect for a private afternoon wine tour of Old Mission Peninsula. We were picked up outside our condo and did a 5 hour wine tour of the Old Mission Wineries. Our driver Stacy was so knowledgeable and gauged right away which wineries we would like. Thank you to Jody and the team for such a great Sunday afternoon!
We seriously had such a great time this past weekend during our wine tour on Old Mission Peninsula. Jody worked with us ahead of time, planned out our itinerary, contacted the wineries. They were on time and kept our schedule all day. Luke was our driver and was wonderful! We had great time with him and he even volunteered to be our photographer for the day. Traverse City Wine and Beer Tours made our day!
