Went with a friend for this cruise. It's an hour long. You get 5 samples of wine and 5 chocolates, then you pick the one you like the most and get a glass of it. Very relaxing trip and you get a nice history lesson of Frankenmuth. Been there many times but learned a few things. Highly recommend this for... More

This was our first trip to Frankenmuth. We being 9 of us in the family decided to take the Wine and Chocolate cruise. This was a nice lazy trip down the river with John as the boat captain and Nicole as the wine steward. They both had great personalities and knowledge of the wine and the area. They were able...

What a great afternoon we had! Definitely well worth the price. The wine was great and the chocolate was even better! Our captain, Luke was very nice and informative. Our server Kaitlynn was super friendly and made sure that we had a town map for our rest of the day in town. Back at the shop make sure you buy... More

First time on a wine and chocolate tasting tour. The staff was very friendly and informative about their wine, chocolate and local history. They were also very helpful and positive about other local attractions and restaurants. Great for couples or groups less than 8. Great interaction took place between all riders due to atmosphere and staff!

Wine and chocolate tasting was a cheap, fun activity for adults. Staff very knowledgable about wine and why each type of chocolate paired well. Wines are decently priced. Did not take any boat tour at all!

It was nice to take a leisurely ride down the river. Our guide Kassidy was very friendly and did a nice job pairing our wine and chocolate. The tour took an hour and included 5 wine and chocolate pairings as well as a glass of your choice at the end, We thought the cost $20 per person was very affordable.... More

I came on this boat ride with my husband, sister-in-law and three month old daughter. It was a very pleasant trip. Our daughter enjoyed it as well. The driver was also very nice, but I would have appreciated more information about Frankenmuth while on this tour.

My second time in Frankenmuth and this place was a must see. My wife and I did $5 wine and chocolate tasting. Was well worth it. Staff was friendly and helpful. Walked out with 3 bottles of wine and 2 wine glasses for $40. Great value

We took the wine and chocolate tasting cruise and enjoyed our time on the river very much. Small 10 passenger boats with informative crew that made the cruise very entertaining. Great selection of wine and chocolates. Well worth the $25 price per person.
