Shires of Vermont Tour
1:00 -3:30 p.m. (Available Nov. - Feb. and early May - June)
Experience the allure and charm of the Vermont backroads! Our Shires of Vermont Tour is a unique alternative to an afternoon of skiing or shopping! Tours leave from Manchester Center at 1 p.m. Ride in the warmth and comfort of our 10-seat tour vehicle or 4-passenger SUV, escorted by a local tour guide. The tour includes sweeping mountain/valley vistas of pristine, country backroads, a visit to an international woodworking factory/retail kitchen store, and the oldest marble quarry in the U.S. (now abandoned but still beautiful).
Visit historic Dorset Village (a quintessential Vermont town), a 5-star historic country inn, the "Birthplace of Vermont" and Historic Manchester Village. Other stops will depend on weather/road conditions for that particular day.
Along the way, you will learn the interesting facts, stories and historical significance of the area. You will have the opportunity to sample and purchase VT-made syrup, cheeses and other products.
Advance reservations are necessary!
