Pontiac Adventures Road Tours for 2020
The number of Pontiacs in each tour will be limited to 20. In addition, some tours will have required fees for samples and tours as indicated in the tour description, as we have done in the past. For planning purposes, we have printed all fees at the tour stops.
Staging for all Pontiac Adventure road tours will be in the road adjacent to the registration area 15 minutes before launching. As is our policy, we will launch all tours on time. You will receive a route map of all tours you have signed up for in your welcome packet.
Please also remember that most brewery and winery tours require closed toe shoes. We can’t emphasize this enough. . . every year someone forgets – please don’t be the one.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION – TOUR DESCRIPTIONS
“SCENIC” – This will be a relaxed, leisurely drive through the countryside. Take in the scenery and the beauty of the land and enjoy the sights of the countryside driven in a relaxed manor.
“SPIRITED” – These tours are for drivers (and their co-pilot) who are confident in themselves and their cars and who enjoy driving their Pontiacs in a more aggressive manor as the opportunity presents itself on a tour. Slower, more cautious drivers should either drive from the back of these tours or limit themselves to “scenic” tours for maximum enjoyment of everyone.
