Luxury Hotels near Vermont Guided Tours

All right, we admit it: We’re biased. But we’re still going to assert that Vermont boasts some of the richest scenery, history, and culture of any state in the USA. And with Lake Champlain accommodations here at Basin Harbor, you’re plunked down in just about the prettiest corner of the state—and with convenient access to all the rest of it!

As a guest at our resort, you’ve got all sorts of options for guided explorations: from tours of Lake Champlain’s numerous shipwrecks to hiking forays into New York State’s legendary Adirondacks. On top of all these near-at-hand activities, we can also point you to an array of tour operators for farther-afield adventures, and today we’d like to spotlight one of them: Vermont Guided Tours, helmed by Green Mountain State native and lifelong resident Greg Doremus and based out of Shelburne not far away from our historic Lake Champlain spread.

Vermont Guided Tours: Wide-Ranging Explorations

Vermont Guided Tours offers quite the spectrum of sightseeing and cultural excursions: any of them a unique chance to dig into our precious corner of New England with a highly knowledgeable and engaging local expert.

You can explore two of Vermont’s signature products, for example, with the Wine & Maple Tour, hitting up both a sugarhouse and a winery: not a bad combination in the slightest! Or get a firsthand taste (literally) for Vermont’s nationally renowned craft-beer scene on the Brew Tour, which includes visits to three top breweries.

This time of year, of course, the Vermont landscape is coming alive with world-renowned fall color—and also the bounty of the harvest. Both will be on full display during the Fall Sights & Cider Tour, which matches some lovely autumnal vistas with quintessential seasonal flavors such as craft cider and cider doughnuts.

Speaking of vistas, they’re also front and center on the Mountain View Tour (which includes prospects of 4,335-foot Mount Mansfield, the highest point in Vermont) and the Island Tour, which brings you to Lake Champlain’s islands for sightseeing, art galleries, country stores, and more.

Basin Harbor goes into hibernation mode in the winter, of course, but not Vermont Guided Tours: Doremus leads the Snowshoe & Hot Chocolate Tour then, for instance, as well as a Cross Country Ski Tour supplying all the necessary equipment.
