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!

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.
