This was an amazing girls trip. Mike the driver was the best he had recommendations for every place we went to and he personally walked us up to each spot. He even got us reservations at the last place so we could sit & eat. This was the best experience ever. It was my first time and I will definitely do it again with Magic Mack Daddy Mike as the driver :) I would recommend it to any and everyone for a great experience from beginning to end. You can bring your cooler & snacks on the bus if you'd like but all the places we visited didn't need as much as we packed.

We had a really great time! Our driver, Mr. Frizzle (John R ) was outstanding! He was very knowledgeable about the vineyards and history of the area. He talked with each group, shared his favorite wines and recommendations for each winery. I highly recommend doing this tour. All the areas were tented with ample room for large groups if necessary. Riding the magic bus and not having to worry about finding our way around made the experience that much more enjoyable and stress free.

I was on a bachelorette party for the wine tour. Our experience was so much fun on and off of the bus.
Our bus driver KAITY was so much fun, she became part of our group and we loved having her!
She’s very fun an outgoing and we would recommend her for other wine tours as a driver.
I would definitely do another wine tour and would hope to have her as our driver.

The driver was great. But I book a winery tour for my wife and I every year for her birthday. I chose this one because we’ve never been to these 4 wineries. We ended up only going to 2 of the 4. One of the unplanned wineries we went to was understaffed and the staff they did have was very rude to us because apparently our tour was not suppose to show up at all. Honestly I feel like we did not get the experience we paid for and this wine tour group cares more about money then providing the experience that they promise.

Our Tour was supposed to be for Leelanau Peninsula we ended up going on the Old Mission Tour. The Magic Bus people were very good about it. They did not have enough people for that day so they said we could go on the Old Mission Tour or get our money back. Wde went on the tour. It was very nice. Our tour driver (Andy) was very informative and gave us lot of information to the wineries. We had ten people on the tour and had so much fun that we all became friends by the time the tour was done, That might have had something to do with the wine too. We would do it again but only if we have Andy as a tour guide.

We loved our guide, Carol. We loved 2 of the 4 wineries. One was substituted from our original list and we were not at all impressed. With the others, even if we didn't all love the wine, the view and ambiance were nice. Our largest complaint however, was that none of the included wineries had food. We brought pretzels for the bus but were anticipating being able to order a charcuterie board or flatbread to share while tasting. I'm not sure if that was due to COVID-19 restrictions or just never offered, but it may be something to keep in mind to include at least one stop with a menu on a longer tour like that (and share that info with guests!).
