We didn't want to take the river cruise since it was a cool & rainy day, so we did the chocolate & wine tasting in the store. We didn't expect to enjoy the wines as much as we did. We normally drink dry red & white wines, but all of the samples were great! Our tasting was with Brad, who... More

Hosts Sara & Jon were excellent. For a very reasonable fee ($20.00) you can take a boat ride on the Cass River, get some tips from locals & enjoy wines & chocolates in a cozy atmosphere. Our hosts were extremely friendly, knowledgeable about the area and entertaining. Wines were well above what I expected from a local winery. Chocolates were... More

First, let me comment on the beautiful spot, the River Place and the lovely surroundings. The boat was very clean, the narrative was interesting and informative and just the right length of time. A very enjoyable trip, reasonably priced (both the cruise and the snacks), with friendly staff. Everyone visiting the Frankenmuth area should take this great little boat ride.

The river cruise was just the right amount of time on the water. The narrator was very knowledgeable. Price was very reasonable.

We really enjoyed our afternoon cruise on the river tasting different wines and tasting different chocolates with each wine. At the end there was also a full glass of our favourite wine. An enjoyable hour on the water and the weather cooperated (sunny and warm).

We booked the wine and chocolate tour and had nice time. The boat seated 10 and the motors were electric, so it was quiet. The wine was quality and the chocolates yummy, and the price was very affordable. They offer different tours as well, and lots of time slots are available.

My wife and I took the wine tasting tour in the evening and it was very relaxing. The wine and chocolates served were fine and the boat operator and wine server were both extremely friendly. It was a great way to finish off a great day in Frankenmuth. The wine and chocolates were a nice combination as well. Only 2... More

Seven of us went on this tour in August, 2014. John and Kelsey were our captain and wine steward! They did a wonderful job. The boat holds 12 - there were 11 of us on board. It so exceeded my expectations. For $20.00 and an hour boat tour along with wine and chocolate, I really wasn't expecting much. I was... More
