North Shore Lakefront Tour

Have a taste for travel? The Finger Lakes Region is a vast area beckoning the adventurous traveler to be explored! Your food & fun “explorateur” at Tours in the Finger Lakes has come up with a venue to combine tastes and travel in a fun-filled afternoon! With (11) Finger Lakes to choose from in upstate New York, it only seemed fitting to design a distinctive old/new lakefront area tour of the 4th largest of those Finger Lakes: scenic and panoramic Canandaigua Lake. Considered one of the most beautiful spots in the United States, the rolling hills, coupled with nature’s own majestic splendor, it’s been deemed the “Gem of the Finger Lakes.” This awe-worthy experience includes a delectable farm to table lunch, select wine & beer tastings…PLUS a 1-1/2 hour boat excursion with some lakefront history sprinkled in…all packed into one leisurely afternoon.
