Went on the Saturday tour and had an excellent time. Sampled many different beers while learning the history of each stop and Duluth. Each stop got even better and moved along at just the right pace, about an hour at each place. Well worth the money. Would definitely do it again!

We booked both the Saturday night brewery tour and Sunday afternoon kayaking tour. Guides on both tours were highly knowledgeable, kind and helpful. Not only did they share great information about the places visited on the tour, but al... More

We visited three micro-brews, each with their unique business model. The first stop was at Lake Superior Brewery. Don gave us the tour and did an excellent job describing the brewing process. The...

Excellent value for a kayak tour on Lake Superior. Chris, my guide was very knowledgeable, personable, and helpful. I got a history tour, geology lesson, a fabulous picnic lunch from Northern Waters Smokehaus, recommendations on great restaurants in the area and a great workout all in one! Thank you for a wonderful day on the big lake.
