“We had too much fun! And paid for it the next morning.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2013

I planned a bachelor party for my best friend. Drew was our driver. We hit all the bars in Traverse city. Made some new friends and drank alot. Drew did a great job of keeping safe and out of trouble. We all got home safe and no drunk driving. It was a great night. We are going to do it once a year. So we can all get together and get out. Celtic we are coming back for Jims bachelor.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2013

My friends and I went to Traverse City last weekend, we live in MI so we were not surprised by the 40 degree weather, we just didn't know what we wanted to do. Last minute we called Celtic Tours and asked if they had anything available. It was around 12 pm and John (very nice and helpful on the phone) said the bus tours had left for the day, but we can schedule a tour for just the 4 of us in their Cadillac. We booked for 3pm that day. Our driver, Ellie, picked us up from our hotel from the moment she met us she was very nice and outgoing. We were a group of young girls and none of us really knew anything about the winery's. We trusted Ellie and let her pick the places, we went to 5 different ones and we were impressed with all of them. Beautiful views and great wine.

I highly recommend booking Celtic tours for your next trip. Great customer service, great knowledge about wine and the city in general. Ellie recommended a nice restaurant and a few bars to go to at night. We took her advice and we loved the places we went to.

Also, they are licensed to have open alcohol in the car, so you can also drink wine in the car. Great company!

Pricing does vary for your group and day of the week. Give them a call, you wont regret it!

“Very Fun, Relaxed, and Safe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2010

At the last minute, we decided to go on winery tours but to have someone drive us. I found Celtic Tours on line and asked for a tour for 4 people from around 11-4. To our surprise, a small bus picked us up. It isn't fancy, but had chairs, a table, a tv and plenty of storage for our wine. Larry picked us up at our hotel and asked if we had specific places we wanted to go. We told him we didn't care and we would trust him to chose. Best idea we had. Larry Rocked! He took us to about 7 wineries in the Leelenaw area with great views and tasting rooms. After our third stop, we were glad we weren't driving. We never worried about how many samples we had and we had a place to safely store our belongings between stops. He knew just where to go and each proprietor hugged our driver when we came in, showing they respected Larry too. We went home with 3 cases of assorted wines per couple, had a great lunch overlooking the bay (a Larry find), great pictures overlooking vistas that have to compare if not surpass California, and a safe trip home including a last stop on a hill specifically to get sunset pictures. What a great day. The rates change depending on how many you have, and I highly recommend going Mon-Thu because the wine tasting rooms were never full and we had their full and pleasant attention. This is likely to become an annual trip, and we'll be calling Celtic again.
