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.

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.

Lori was our driver and tour guide. She had the best customer service we could ask for! So fun and nice to be around.
Great experience. Our group of six had a fantastic time visiting TC vineyards and a local micro brewery to boot.
