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!

What to Expect on a Join-In Tour
Everyone always asks what the join-in tours are like and we say the same thing every time. “Our join-in tours are a little quiet on the way to the first stop but on the way home everyone wants to live together forever!”
On the day of your join-in tour, we’ll pick you up for free at your Traverse City area hotel or rental before heading out to stop at the wineries, breweries, and distilleries of the area. Only interested in wine? No worries, we have something for almost everyone. We have tours that take in just wine, wine & beer, wine & spirits, and just breweries that also sell wine & hard cider. Our join-in tours will typically make 4 different stops on each tour.
There is always a chance to grab a little something to eat on most any tour. Sometimes due to time restrictions and the number of people at different venues, getting food can be difficult. Options can be as small as a piece of chocolate at a winery to a pizza at a brewery. We offer bottled water and chips on all tours and you are welcome to bring anything to eat to enjoy on our vehicles!
Our fleet features many different vehicles, so depending on the join-in tour size that day, you could be in a vehicle that fits 7 to 32 guests! Our vehicles are the newest (average age is 2.5 years) in town and extremely comfortable, no matter the size. The average size of our group tours is 14, some can be as big as 20-24 people on busier weekends. You can see pictures of our vehicles here on the Vehicles page.

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.
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.
