"We were on this tour for my birthday celebration. Not only was the entire tour teriffic, but the tour guide, Matt, was also amazing. Not only did he escort us safely to each stop but he provided a detailed narration of not just breweries, but the entire area. Matt made our first time to Burlington and our first tour of this nature a tremendous experience Not only will we visit Burlington again, but we will certainly include this tour."
Visit local breweries and leave the driving to them.
"This was such a great time, I can't stop telling all my friends about it. They picked us up in downtown Burlington, picked up a couple more people and we were off. Matt, the tour guide, was so informative and answered any questions that we may have had. My husband and I are thinking of booking again in the fall of 2017, that's how much fun we had. This is a must do if you like to try different beers; and they are all made local in the Burlington, VT area."
I Like Beer
"We booked this tour last minute and it was great from start to finish. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area, not just about local breweries and the making of beer, but also the history of the town and the best places to visit. We visited three different breweries, Switchback, Magic Hat and Goodwater - and had a delicious lunch at Barnyard Pizza. I would highly recommend this tour if you have a half day to spare!"
