When looking into things to do when staying in Frankenmuth for a couple of days, the wine and chocolate tour seemed like a popular excursion to choose. We reserved in advance which was quick and painless. The trip itself is a quick hour. For the $25 you get the relaxing cruise, five wine samples and a deliciously paired chocolate for each. Then you get to select which variety you would like for your full glass of wine. At the end, after disembarking, you get a souvenir wine glass and two more samples to try. The boat is well maintained and comfortable. There were 10 passengers along with the two crew members. Even though there were a couple of quick rain showers, that didn't stop the fun from happening thanks to the boat being covered and being equipped with flaps that could be zipped up till we were out of the rain. Even though the trip seemed quick, the scenery was pleasant and the company was entertaining. The captain and first mate shared many interesting facts about Frankenmuth and its residents. The wine was good but their chocolates were even better. We left with 1/2 pound to enjoy later.

This was so much fun! Capital Jack was awesome! The wine and chocolates were so good we purchased some at the end of our ride. The history and little tidbits of information captain Jack shared really made the trip interesting. We are definitely going to do this again and recommending it to everyone we know. Thanks for a memorable afternoon!

Loved. Loved. Loved. Captain Jack and Emma provided a wonderful experience for me and my out-of-state guest. The wine was great but the chocolates were my favorite. Very reasonable price and I will definitely be back.
