Grand Traverse Tours
On any given day, you might spot a chauffeured van winding its way through the rolling hills of the Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsulas. Chances are good that it belongs to Grand Traverse Tours, whose guides use luxury Mercedes Sprinters as well as other vehicles to ferry passengers between the area’s wineries, breweries, and distilleries. At each stop, passengers sample the spirits, learning about the process of transforming grapes and grains into alcohol in the process. In addition to engaging the taste buds, the tours also delight the eyes, with typical views incorporating lush vineyards, sparkling waters, and long stretches of open road.
