We used Blue Lakes by the Bay on October 26 for a wine tour with 18 ladies! We were set up to do tastings at 4 wineries but because everything went so smoothly, Bill was able to get us in to a 5th winery. It was a beautiful day and we couldn't have asked for a better tour! We would highly recommend them if you are ever in need of a tour bus in the Traverse City area.

Just got back from an amazing weekend in Traverse City with a bunch of friends. There were 13 of us in total and we rented a 4-hour wine tasting tour with Blue Lakes. They were super easy to work with on the front end with booking, and our driver, David, was amazing for the actual tour. We were ahead of schedule and he called ahead to a 5th place to sneak us in. Start to finish he helped us maximize our time and was even willing to drop us off at Hop Lot AFTER making a pit stop at the house we were staying, even though it extended our 4-hour tour by about 20 minutes. He was very friendly and willingly took pictures of our group at every stop. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone wanting a safe and fun way to explore Traverse City!

We used one of the black SUV's for a wine tasting tour. There were 6 of us total and we all fit perfectly in the SUV. Ray was our driver, and he opened the door every stop and assisted me out of the vehicle every time. I was wearing wedges so i very much appreciated the gesture! Especialy since the more wine we tasted, the more help I needed! The weather wasn't the best and we had several rain showers on and off. Ray came inside the winery and gave us an umbrella as a group of showers came our way. He also picked us up at the entrance when we left each winery. He was an absolute delight and would recommend that if you have a small group that you request Ray!!!
