The early days of guided tours included transportation on maximum-capacity pigeon carriers and slow-moving ships of scurvy-laced sailors. Stretch out while hygienically hiking with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a Saturday wine-tasting trek for one person on July 16, August 20, or September 17 from Appalachian Wilderness Guides (a $100 value). The treks take place in Helen.
Appalachian Wilderness Guides leads avid adventurers on Mother Nature explorations and mountainous hikes. Teaming with northern-Georgia wineries, the wine-tasting trek whisks vino-lovers through Georgia vineyards, helmed by a tour guide and including a palate-pleasing tasting with accompanying snacks. After securing your reservation, Appalachian Wilderness Guides will give you directions to an easy-to-reach location to meet your guide. Along the way, certified-Appalachian Wilderness Guides participate as little or as much as you like, meaning its leaders can guide you through an easy-rated trail for an ideal sunset toast or point out Supreme Court justices who are lurking in the woods. Location varies from hike to hike; details of the exact location are finalized after reservation.
