Route Selection Information:

On average in a 2-hour tour, a group of 16 can get to 3 bars for approximately 20 minutes per stop, or 2 bars for 30 minutes per stop. If you want more than 3 stops on the downtown route, we recommend booking the GL Pub Cruiser for a 3-hour ride which would allot you 4 stops total. If you want a bar not listed on the possible stops, give us a call and we can talk about how to build in your choice!

Highlights of the market include the homemade ice cream shop, the bake shop, and the cheese, wine and beer establishment - where you can actually drink/sample what you may want to buy at their shop. Additionally, there are a few restaurants that offer lunch-type selections. The market stop would be 50 minutes, and the first stop would be 25 minutes.
