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.

I went on the hour long cruise and it was fun to learn about the different Michigan wines and how chocolate will change the flavor of the wine. My mother and 18 year old niece enjoyed the sparkling cider in place of the wine. At the end of the cruise you can sample more wine or have a beer. The... More

We spent an enjoyable hour drinking local wine and eating chocolates while cruising the Cass river. A great way to spend an hour in Frankenmuth, relaxing and taking in the scenery.

As a native German, even Bavarian and true Franconian I was curious to meet the city which my ancestors from Franconia founded in the 19th century. The boat trip was by far the best experience I had in this little town. Whoever goes there should not skip this nice, interesting, informative but still relaxing one our boat trip. I will... More
