Tour Tips

Traverse City Winery Tours
THE TOUR AGENDA
When there are reservations made for you at wineries, it is important to be on time. Your driver will keep you informed of when it's time to wrap things up at your current stop. Please be mindful of staying on schedule.
TOUR FLEXIBILITY
Life happens: crowded wineries, traffic, whatever. If time permits and it makes sense to everyone in the vehicle, plans have and can change on the fly. Don't ever feel like you're "stuck" going anywhere.
TIPPING
Our drivers are generally tipped between $50-$150 from our gracious guests. They work for tips and it'll show! Our drivers will not only taxi you around, but take pictures for you, ensure you're settled in at every stop, keep you on schedule, recommend things to do in the area, feed you snacks and water, and the list goes on. Cash or Venmo is appreciated and preferred.

Please tip the people helping you at the wineries also - just like you'd tip waitstaff at a restaurant.
ADDING TIME TO A TOUR
If time and the schedule permits, ask your driver if they'd be willing to add an hour or more to the tour if it's going well. If the driver is onboard with it, they'll contact me and I'll email you an invoice which you can quickly pay upon receipt. That's it!
PICK-UP AND DROP-OFF LOCATIONS
If a prior agreement hasn't already been made, both pick-up and drop-off must be near the downtown area/hotel strip of Traverse City so we can keep everything on schedule. Keep in mind that it doesn't necessarily have to be where you're staying...it can be a restaurant, a store, a marina, wherever fits your schedule.
PETS AND CHILDREN
Sorry, but we cannot allow pets to ride in our vehicles. Persons under 21 can ride along, but must join your party at each destination.
MUSIC IN THE VEHICLE
All of our vehicles have Sirius XM, however if you want to bring an AUX cord or Bluetooth your device to the vehicle so your group can rock out to your tunes, it is highly encouraged! :)

The Process

  • After you book your tour date, you'll receive a confirmation email.
  • I'll contact you via email prior to your tour to gather more information from you: # of guests, where you're staying in Traverse City, what types of wine you like, etc.
  • We can design the perfect tour together, or you can let me do all of the work. Wineries are constantly changing their reservation systems, policies, and hours, so it's best if I handle the reservations. Although if you already have reservations, keep them! They fill up fast these days.
  • On the day of your tour, I will send you a text letting you know I'm on the way.
  • I'll pick you up wherever you are near the downtown area/hotel strip of Traverse City. Outside this area may incur an additional charge.
  • While on the road, enjoy snacks and bottled water in the vehicle while enjoying the scenery.
  • Note: wine-tasting fees are not covered - expect them to be between $5 to $15 per person.
  • When we are finished, I'll drop you back off anywhere near the downtown area/hotel strip of Traverse City. Outside this area may incur an additional charge.
  • If my schedule allows it, extra time is easy to purchase if necessary. Cash or credit cards accepted.

THESE TOURS ARE DESIGNED FOR COUPLES/SMALL GROUPS THAT WANT TO RELAX, ENJOY WINE, AND TAKE IN THE BEAUTIFUL VIEWS OF THE TRAVERSE CITY WINE COUNTRY

Leelanau Peninsula Wineries

About TC Wine Girl

Traverse City Winery Tours

Hi, my name is Karen and I love wine tasting! It never gets old to me and I would be honored to take you and your companion around the picturesque Traverse City wine country. I fell in love with both the Old Mission Peninsula and Leelanau Peninsula winery scenes on my third wedding anniversary back around the turn of the century.
Touring Old Mission or Leelanau Peninsula is always fun, but it's even better when you aren't DRIVING!!
My husband and I have been wine tasting here for years and continue to go regularly. We always see tour buses, limos and shuttles carrying several people, but hardly anything when it comes to transportation for just two people like us.
Uber and Lyft are both an option, however they take a longggggggggg time arriving up on the peninsula. I believe it's best to spend more time wine tasting and less time worrying about transportation.
I started this company so couples or small groups can make the most of their wine-tasting adventure time plus enjoy it in style!
