Welcome to Ridge & Valley Tours! We are delighted to have you join us. It is our goal to share the history and beauty of Southwest Wisconsin with visitors in a fun and informative way. Whether you are looking for a premier guided tour or a family activity, we have you covered. We are connected to many agriculture enterprises that offer farm-related experiences, and farm tours to the public. We strive to represent the diversity of agriculture in Wisconsin while promoting the family-farm ethic.

We also love to share the good food and tasty brews of the Driftless region! Through a Ridge and Valley Tour experience you will be entertained and informed with an energetic tour of local farms and agri-businesses. As an added effort, we seek to protect the unique Karst geology in the Driftless area and to educate our guests about this unique region.

COVID-19 Response and effect

As you can imagine, the COVID-19 threat has greatly affected Ridge and Valley Tours. As group tour operators it has truly caused us to temporarily put our shuttle in park. However, this summer we are offering “step-on” tours. If you and your family, or other assembled group, wish to come join us for a tour, our guides offer the option as a ride-along guide in your vehicle, or we will lead you from stop to stop in our own vehicles as you follow in your own.

There is a bit of a bonus in this type of a tour:

#1. We have reduced the cost of our tours to $35 per person for a 4 Hour tour. This includes at least 4 stops, local cheese and/or meat samples, but no meal.

#2. This adds the flexibility to customize the tour to a group’s specific interests. If wine and cheese is more your interests we can make multiple stops to wineries and cheese factories. Perhaps you have a bigger interest in the cattle side of agritourism, we can design a tour heavy on farm locations.

For more information, and design suggestions of a tour, please feel free to reach out to us at (608) 630-2452, or by email at ridgeandvalleytours@gmail.com.

We look forward to resuming our events and regular tours as soon as reasonable and are committed to doing so. Keep checking our Facebook page, and our “News” page here for updated information.

Keep up with us by following the posts in our News section, and connect with us on our Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn pages. If you would like contact Marty or Teri you may do so on the contact page.

Finally, at Ridge and Valley tours, we strive to epitomize “Wisconsin-nice”.  As international travelers, it has become very clear to us that our state and area are recognized as home to some of the nicest people on the planet! We believe in hospitality–the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers. And we believe “Wisconsin-nice” is a thing, and work every day to display that quality.

Our Mission Statement:

Ridge and Valley Tours is connecting people to the land of the Driftless Area by engaging them with fun stories of the people, places, and products from our area while committing to preserve the Wisconsin agricultural heritage and stewardship of our unique Driftless Area environment.
