We are offering wine and hard cider tours. These tours will feature stops at Michigan wineries and cider mills. There will be a rotation of pick up locations and different routes. Please see description for each date for the route description.
These tours will be in our 32 passenger trolley. Our climate controlled trolley is very unique and will also be one of the high lights of the tour. It features park bench style seating and will be playing music along the way. You can bring your own alcohol, drinks, and snacks on the bus if you choose to but please bring cups with a lid such as a tumbler of coffee mug to avoid spills. Also please keep the cooler size to a lap size cooler. At each stop the wineries will provide you with what we have in the description (yes it is included in the price of your ticket). You will have around 45 minutes to an hour at each spot and after you do your samples you will be able to purchase additional drinks and snacks if you choose to. Please have your I.D ready to get on the bus at O’Tooles and as you enter each stop.
