Lauri did an amazing job keeping the energy up and keeping us on schedule. We loved hanging out with her for the afternoon. It was cold and rainy, so we appreciated the $2 rain ponchos and the emphasis on spending time in bars as opposed to on the pedal pub.

Celebrated a bachelorette! We enjoyed our experience and the staff is very friendly. The two stops we chose were fun too. I’d recommend booking the 2.5 hour since the 2 hour felt a little quick. They let you pick your own music. Be warned the pub cruisers are not motorized but make for great bonding experiences as you chug uphill! Overall we had an awesome time.

This experience was perfect for our work outing. A little physical activity while having some adult drinks. Our guide was amazing and made the whole experience. She made adjustments based off our groups abilities and we greatly appreciated it. Can’t wait to do it again!

We did this for my best friends bachelorette party. It was really fun. It’s fun being able to play music and ride around on GR. But it is kind of expensive if you think about it. For two hours, you have to bring your own booze and you don’t get drink specials or anything at the bars. Our first stop was at the woods, the pedal cruiser had made a reservation for us and we were able to be seated right away. They weren’t even busy and yet it took the waiter 15 minutes to get to us. And by the time we got our drinks we had 5 minutes to finish them and then we had to be back on the bike. At our second bar, they didn’t even make a reservation for us and this place was busy so we were standing in the door way the whole time with no wear to sit with such a large group. If they weren’t going to make a reservation for us then why didn’t we go somewhere else? We didn’t get to pick the places. Then when we got back at the end of the night, the manger was very stand offish and kicked us out of the garage. When we were trying to finish the drinks we had. She wasn’t even polite about it. Overall, I would just save the money and pre game at someone’s house then go out or do a pub crawl 🤷‍♀️

This place is a joke. Please do not waste your money. It’s over priced for what you get, which is nothing but a work out and some water. They have 20 rules which we were fine with but then then my brother got charged $300 b/c someone in our party puked on the side walk in front of their establishment which was no where in the 20 rules they had, not to even mention that it was cleaned up by other parties in our group. When we called back to ask them about this charge they said they puked on private property and thus the charge. Once again. This was never mentioned in the rules, not to even mention that a side wall is not their property. The whole experience before this was mediocre at best. The extra charge aside I would never recommend this to anyone & will never recommend this to anyone.

We had a 'mini family reunion' and took the large pub cycle on the Bloody Mary Mimosa tour. It was a blast! Our guide Sarah was awesome, and we pedaled, drank, and sang our way all over Grand Rapids. A great time was had by all; this will likely become a yearly tradition. Highly recommend!!

This activity was meh. You have to go through a 20 minute orientation to go through every rule that you all ready had to sign a waiver on before you can register and you better not break them or you will get a fine or be asked to leave. You can’t bring any props with you on the trolley, no balloons , Jell-O shots, no banners advertising what you’re celebrating .It was rainy so your ‘provided’ ponchos at a cost of $2 a piece more after you pay $560 for 3 hours. They drop you at a bar for 30 min, tell you to be back or you will be fined and you HAVE to order a drink at every bar or you will be fined for that and they don’t even give you a special or discount. But they can’t wait to give you the QR code to tip them at the end of the tour. You drive through old neighborhoods, there’s no sight seeing of downtown GR. I had fun with my friends, but try and fill the bike so the cost per person goes down or in my opinion, it just wasn’t worth the cost.

The entire staff at The Great Lakes Pub Cruiser is absolutely awesome! We were there for a bachelorette weekend and were greeted kindly/felt immediately comfortable and excited to begin our tour. Sharon was our driver and she was so fun! She danced along with us to some of our songs and was fun to talk to and helpful. When we arrived at our second stop the driver of the other Pub Cruiser was super friendly and helpful too - since she was walking in too, she guided us to the bar. Everyone went the extra mile and it was so fun! If you're considering using this company to book a tour in Grand Rapids you won't be disappointed!

(My friend already left a review)
I booked this tour for my 25th birthday. There were too many people I wanted to invite, so I had the girls come on the tour, and had a few guys just meet us at the bars we were going to since there wasn’t enough room on the bike. When we arrived at the first bar we were notified by the staff that the owner of the bike tour (who we had not met and had no interactions with) decided that one of the men (aged 25) with us was not over 21. At no point did she check his ID, and there was not a reason for her to since he was not on the tour with us and therefore would not have a reason to need to show his ID, except to the bar staff (which he did at the door and later in the bar when they came in to confront him). I brought this up to our tour guide Sarah (who was great, 10/10 would recommend her), the owner was there and when she described this “underage” boy, she combined the characteristics of multiple of the men I was with. So obviously she did not have a clear indicator of who she DECIDED was underage and just picked one at random. The issue was thought to be cleared up at the first bar, until we arrived at the second bar where we found that she took it upon herself to call ahead to all the bars we went to to tell them not to serve him, even though he had valid ID. Sarah had to come into the bar and vouched for his valid ID, even after the issue was thought to be cleared up. This tour would have been a lot of fun had there not have been the stress of having to beg the bar staff and our tour guide to allow one of my friends, who wasn’t even on the tour to begin with, to be able to drink. The owner overstepped and was extremely rude when confronted about an issue that she created.

Unfortunately, my friends and I who planned this trip months in advance weren’t able to attend this last minute because we lost our best friend to cancer a few days before our trip was supposed to happen and had to cancel. I understand their refund policy but under extreme circumstances refunds or at least a credit should be offered in a time like this. We informed Laurie of this who was in charge of everything and she was not understanding of our situation.
