Booking a tour date was easy and painless after a quick phone call to Grand Traverse Tours. On the phone, they were extremely helpful with local tips on the best hotels. Once the time for the tour came, Jeff (our chauffeur) was right on time. Jeff was the perfect host as he grew up in the area and shared his knowledge of the establishments and local history. He was down to earth and professional; he made the whole trip run smoothly and everyone had time to enjoy themselves without feeling rushed. The wineries that were chosen were perfect! Each had it's own unique character and appeal without any feeling of pretentiousness. We were already plans for a brewery tour with Grand Traverse Tours as we were driving back home for the weekend!

AMAZING! Jeff, the chauffeur, is punctual, professional and personal. The trip started with Jeff picking up the couples for the wine tour. He is extremely detail oriented: he provided waters to the passengers, discussed the tour overview and plans if anyone is over-served, and made sure he had accountability/communication with everyone throughout the day. He shares decades of TC and winery history which made for such a special touch. We had an outstanding time! We will certainly use Grand Traverse Tours every time we come to Traverse City.

Jeff, our chauffeur, was amazing! Had so much fun, took us to some of the best wineries, was very knowledgable about the area and it's history. Have been on many wine trips and this was by far the best - HIGHLY recommend this company!

My wife Sara and I booked this tour for an early anniversary outing. We couldn't have been more impressed with this new company's service. Jeff picked us up at the Park Place hotel in a brand new Mercedes bus and we were greeted with a smile, and a warm welcome. We chose to do the Peninsula tour which he was very familiar with and creative about how to circumvent the busy wineries. He went out of his way to educate us about the history of the businesses on the peninsula and the wineries themselves. He did an excellent job catering to our every need and was very open to letting us spend as much time as we wanted at each winery. He was professional, kind, knowledgeable, and as competent as they come. It is very refreshing to still see business owners like Jeff around. This guy is the real deal! We couldn't have had a better time on our anniversary thanks to Jeff at Grand Traverse Tours. He is highly recommended and we can't wait to meet up with him again. Thanks so much Jeff:)

June 12, 2013 I have been recommending Grand Traverse Tours to everyone!!! The entire day was fantastic. Jeff and Jim (driver and owner) were incredibly fun, kind, easy going, and professional. The best part is that you can tell they really enjoy taking guests to the wineries. The experience is vastly improved with people who like their job! I was with a group of 4 young women and we did the Old Mission tour. I'm already planning my next trip this summer to use Grand Traverse tours through the Leelanau Penisula with my honey. If you're planning a trip to the MI wineries, be sure to book this tour. If you haven't yet, I suggest you start your plan with Grand Traverse tours!
