If you’re planning your next outing, then you might want to pick a location that’s a bit close to home. You are sure to find many options that won’t require an airline ticket, depending on where you live, like a wine or beer brewery tour perhaps.
If you’ve been dying to taste some great wine and a wine tour sounds like just the activity for you this summer then you are going to need a good tour guide, and here are the reasons why.
1. It’s Surprisingly Affordable
While vineyards and wine tasting might seem a bit classy, and therefore expensive, that’s not exactly true. You would be surprised to know just how affordable a wine or beer brewery tour can be in South Haven, Holland, and Saugatuck.
Renowned tour companies such as, Coastal Tours offer various tour packages, making it easier for folks to find one that suits their budget. They also have the best lineup of local wineries and breweries that will give you a chance to taste some of the best wines and craft’s beer brews, while keeping your 401k intact.
2. Take a Trip Back in History

Hiring a tour company for a wine tour or beer brewery tour makes sense simply because, tour providers know the ins and outs of various breweries and vineyards, along with their history and can show you the very best that those locations have to offer, while skipping the not so great ones. This allows you to experience the rich history of local wineries and beer breweries that you would have otherwise missed out on if you had gone the DIY route.
Tour companies are hired not just for the wineries and breweries they visit, but for the experience that they provide while on tour, which is simply unmatched.
3. Driving Intoxicated is No Fun

If you and a couple of friends are planning on going on a wine tasting or beer brewery tour, then there’s a good chance that there is going to be a lot of wine and beer tasting, which is the fun part of the tour, that no one wants to lose out on.
This means one of you will be driving back home while all of you will be intoxicated. We don’t need to get into the importance of driving safely, or why driving intoxicated could be dangerous not just for you, but for everybody in the vehicle. A tour company offers a safe and reliable transportation and is a great way to go on wine and beer brewery tours while not having to bother about transportation, and who’s going to take the wheel on the drive home.
4. Astronomical Michigan DUI/OWI Fines
Law enforcement in Michigan refer to drunk driving offenses as ‘Operating While Intoxicated’ or OWI. Regardless of what it’s called, you do not want to get pulled over by the cops for driving under the influence in Michigan. No unless, you’re okay with paying a $$$THOUSANDS of dollars in fines you cannot afford while getting your driver’s license suspended for 6 months, and did we mention the chance of doing jail time of up to 93 days or worse.
Michigan state law enforcement also show zero tolerance for OWI offences so you’re better off just hiring a tour company. Tour providers, such as Coastal Tours offer pick up and drop off at a location of your choosing, so you don’t have to worry about getting intoxicated, and there’s no need for you to hold back while on the wine tasting tour.
5. Make New Friends
Finally, one of the reasons why hiring a tour company for going out on a wine tasting or beer brewery tour is a great idea is because you get to meet and make friends with new and like minded people who are also on tour. This is just another way that a wine tasting and beer brewery tour company offers a great way for you to have a wonderful time, share a meal and delicious wine while making new connections.
