Enjoyable wine and chocolate cruise

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

We did the wine and chocolate tasting tour. The staff were great. The chocolate and wine were great and worth the $20/person.

Very relaxing, unrushed, calm and just very enjoyable. I dod not do the chocolate and wine portion as we did the tour in the morning. We plan to do it next time. I would recommend this for everyone

We were strolling through town and stumbled across this place. We decided to do the wine tasting paired with chocolates for $5.00. It was a great experience. The gentleman that greeted us was very friendly although the young woman that took us through the wines and chocolates was a little less passionate. She seemed as if she didn't want to... More

Need I say more? They pair great wines with chocolates for a cool tasting. For 5 dollars you can try 5 of each and then pick any wine to try as your 6th choice, They were very knowledgeable about the wines.

My husband I tood the 35 minute tour. I would really recommend doing the wine and chocolate tour instead. The 35 minute was very relaxing but it really only was a boat ride that went in one direction for around 15 minutes and then turned around and went the other way for 15 minutes. Our driver told us little facts... More
