We were in Frankenmuth for the day and it was raining, we had scheduled the hour cruise the night before and thought seriously of cancelling it but could not think of anything else to do. Thank goodness we kept to plan it was the best time ever. We tried 5 wines on our leisurely sail down Cass River and 2... More

The crew could not have been more helpful, courteous, knowledgeable, and fun to be around. The wine and chocolate tasting was copious and flavorful. The scenery was great, the company fun, and the hour way too short. Defintely a must on a trip to Frankenmuth.

This is a must do in my opinion. I booked the wine and chocolate tour for my husband and two kids (10/14). The kids had the option of pop, lemonade, water, or sparkling grape juice. We had 5 tastings and chocolate pairings. You then chose the wine you liked the most for the full glass. After you are finished on... More

This was the perfect little river cruise. There were 10 of us on the boat pl;us the captain and the server. A nice calm, quiet cruise and sampling different Michigan wines and delicious chocolates. The people we met were great and the staff made the trip worth every penny. Would do it again in a heart beat.

What an enjoyable little trip we had on the Frankenmuth Funship. Just the two of us so we had a personal tour with Garrett. In between giving us some of the history of the places we were passing he served wine and chocolate with explanations of each. We had a great time eating chocolate and sipping wine while cruising down... More

I enjoyed the one hour cruise on the FunShip. I did not do the wine tasting on board, but would highly recommend it to others. I would like to do it again with the wine tasting. They offer 1/2 hour and 1 hour tours. It's a pretty good value. It's not terribly scenic, but it's relaxing and the boat captain... More

This was one of the best parts of our trip to Frankenmuth. The boat is small so the tour is intimate, the staff was knowledgeable and fun. The wine and chocolates were all delicious and I was just blown away by the value - It's an inexpensive tour and you get SO MUCH for the price. This was a fantastic... More

My husband and I went on the chocolate/wine tasting boat tour this past Sunday. It was freezing out (snowing in MAY!) but we still went. The boat was all closed in so we weren't cold (can be open in warmer weather). We enjoyed the boat to ourselves as no one else was looking to be out in the cold that... More

We headed there thinking it would be a simple event to start my birthday celebration - to my surprise it was the highlight of my day. NICOLE was so much fun - she made our experience so enjoyable. The wine was delicious and the chocolates were heavenly. She was very patient and knowledgable about the wines and the chocolates. She... More
