I like the organization that Mike and Ruth put into their trips. I have traveled on my own to Europe and here in the US in search of beer but it is hard to do on your own. The hardest part is trying to enjoy a few beers and then driving. With a Bon Beer Voyage trip you don’t have to worry about that. Mike and Ruth take good care of you and you can relax and have as few or as many beers as you want without having to hit the road behind the wheel. The (European) barge trips are great too because the beers are excellent and you only have to unpack once. Your barge hotel follows along with you! Have been impressed with Mike & Ruth for the trips I have been on. Will definitely try our best to make another trip with them soon.
