We have used Traverse City Tours for years now and there's a couple of reasons we always go back. Kathy is organized and makes the process easy. Vicky is so fun and we request her as our driver every time. Overall, our tours always go smoothly and are a great time.

We took a private tour with Kathy and it was spectacular! The vehicle was very clean and comfortable. Kathy was very personable and friendly and made you feel like you've known her for years. She is very knowledgeable of the the different wineries and knows all of the ins and outs. She gave us a little bit of history of... More

We had so much fun on our wine tour! Kathy was incredibly quick to respond and was able to help us pick which wineries that would be fun for our party. Rochelle was our driver and everyone at the wineries knew her and she came in with us to make sure we would get a seat for the tasting. She... More

My husband and I did a join in wine tour. Kathy was our driver. She was great! She gave us a brief history on each winery we visited, and we were able to make 6 different stops. She also made the effort to ask where everyone was from and acted like she truly enjoys her job. Kathy had boxes ready... More

We have been using this company for over 7 years and have been satisfied with their service. The only reason that they got 4 stars instead of 5 is because they no longer provide snacks and water (which is an additional cost for us). Our driver Vicky is a true delight!

The reason we no longer provide snacks and water is because our pricing is the least expensive in Traverse City. In order to continue providing our superior service we try to hold our pricing down so you can buy wine. Feel free to check out pricing with other companies next year! More

Kathy was a great guide and very knowledgeable.  She was welcoming by trying to get to know us some and shared some of her funny experiences while leading tours.  She then explained where we were stopping along with some history, and kept the car warm while we were wine tasting. We had a very nice time.

We had a large group last weekend who had the pleasure of being driven by Rochelle for the second year in a row. There's a reason we always book our group tours through this company- Kathy is phenomenal and everyone we've met that she works with is awesome too. They know the places to go, are professional and make it... More

Kathy is honestly the best, so personable and funny! I am already planning another trip and having her as our guide again. For what she charges, you get so much more! Her prices are great compared to everyone in the area and she is the best! Book with her and you wont regret it!
