We are passionate about providing memorable experiences for you and your guests.  That is why we are rated #1 on Trip Advisor for Tour companies in Traverse City! That goal is aided by the unbelievable wineries, breweries and people here in Traverse City. You won’t find another place in the world with miles of freshwater beaches, a myriad of restaurants to choose from, and a pace of life that reflects how the locals live. Of course, we’re extremely proud of our wineries and breweries that are found in abundance in Traverse City. Choosing the wine or beer tour that fits you and your group is easy with our experienced, local staff.

As you enjoy our wine tours on the Leelanau Peninsula and Old Mission Peninsula you will be mesmerized by the Lake Michigan shoreline. Old Mission Peninsula is situated just north of Traverse City extending about 18 miles and divides the east and west bays with the lighthouse at the very top of Old Mission. Yes we can stop there also on your tour! Leelanau Peninsula extends about 30 miles out into Lake Michigan and is often referred to as the “pinky finger” of Michigan. The views are out of this world! We offer daily private or group tours throughout the Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsulas. Guests are treated to stunning views as they travel to amazing wineries, and sample many of our area’s award-winning wines.  Our vehicles are buses so you have easy access to your seats not climbing in over each other into vans.

We know you’re spoiled for choice when choosing your Traverse City wine tour. But we hope you choose the company that puts your experience first. Our company and employees are locals, and know the area better than anyone else around. We can’t wait to show you around our hometown, and show you why Traverse City is a place and experience to return to again and again.

Gift Certificates

"Vicki and Kathy are excellent to work with!!!! They both were interested in making sure that we had the best time possible when they were sold out on the day we wanted to go initially. Vicki (our driver) was known by the winery staff/owners and even called one winery to have them stay open because we were on our way. Kathy was able to steer us clear of a really busy day, giving us a lot of time with individual attention in most tasting rooms. The vehicle was nice and clean. I would recommend them 100%. Another nice feature was that gratuity was included in the pricing."

"What a perfect Saturday morning in TC! We wanted a knowledgeable driver to take us to the wineries, and it TCTours didn't disappoint! Rochelle was wonderful, and helped us get settled in to each winery. The wine wagon tour is the way to go to check out some northern Michigan wineries. We are looking forward to returning to try out the Leelanau tour as we did Old Mission this time around."
