Private Anniversary Tour

Let me start out by saying Kathy is the real deal!

When Traverse City was expecting enormous amounts of snow, Kathy reached out to us and suggested that we reschedule to prevent from the event of cancellation of the tour due to the roads not being safe for driving. I’ve never had someone reach out to us to recommend changing our dates for our safety!

Alas, the day finally came when we could enjoy this private tour. We entered the pristine Mercedes car and were able to go over what WE would like to see/visit.

Kathy wasn’t just “driving” us, she was actually making sure we got the most of the trip. At our first destination, as rookies, we were really taking our time and Kathy gave us a gentle reminder that if we want to explore more destinations, then we should spend less time at each place. After some coaching tips, we were able to go to EVERY destination we wanted to and actually didn’t feel rushed!

Once the tour was done, Kathy didn’t just drop us off, she recommended restaurants to us and suggested cabs to bring us home.

Now after all of that…we had many bottles of wine and glasses from our tour. Did we have to carry everything around with us after the tour? NO! Kathy offered to leave the items in her car and she drove all the way out to Interlochen the next morning and brought everything to us at no charge!

We absolutely cannot wait to do business with this company again!

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.

"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."

"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."
