Shop Grand Traverse Tours: Manning the wheel for customized wine and brew tours through Northern Michigan
Jeff Geiger began giving tours of Northern Michigan in 1987, although his mode of transportation was a bit unconventional: a hot air balloon. With the explosion of Northern Michigan’s local wine industry, and the demand for area tours ever growing, Geiger decided bring his expertise down-to-earth by founding Grand Traverse Tours, a luxury van service.
Initially specializing in winery tours through Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsulas, Grand Traverse Tours also escorts clients through Traverse City, Petoskey, and other Northern Michigan towns to visit the region’s diverse distilleries and craft breweries. Geiger says that customers frequently return to Grand Traverse Tours to see more of Northern Michigan. “Customers might start with a tour of Old Mission Peninsula, and before they’re even done with that, they’re scheduling a tour of the Leelanau wineries or a Northern Michigan brewery tour.”
The quality of the scenery is matched by the luxury of the ride: Geiger’s fleet of comfortable, classy Mercedez-Benz High-top Sprinters tends to drop jaws. “We’ll pull up to a hotel, and customers will ask, ‘Is this for us?’” says Geiger. And with a staff of knowledgeable drivers, Grand Traverse Tours provides convenient, informed and entertaining transport and tour services that are unmatched in Northern Michigan.
Tours come in two formats, private or “join-in”. Join-in tours are typically four hours and allow individuals, couples and small groups to join others in a tour of local wineries or breweries. Grand Traverse Tours provides complimentary pick up and return to locations within the Grand Traverse area as well as snacks and water. Private tours are also four hours long and planned exclusively for your group, accommodating up to ten passengers.
Grand Traverse Tours is based in Traverse City, and is a featured retailer at ShopMyNorth.
