Tips for booking Mackinac Island tours include booking as early as possible, checking for special offers and visiting the island during a non-peak time period. Packages are also available that combine tours with room rentals and other accommodations at discounted rates.
Booking as early as possible ensures that the traveler gets on the tour, as space is usually limited. Tour companies also sometimes offer discounts for travelers who book the tours before a certain date.
When booking tours and packages, first check the company's website to check pricing and view any special offers. If the company has a Facebook page, it may also offer discounts there. Search online for other discount codes and offers. If you have already booked a hotel, ask if the hotel has any discount connections for tours, as some hotels on Mackinac Island do.

The peak time period for Mackinac Island is the summer, from the beginning of June until the end of August, and Labor Day weekend is especially busy. Prices are significantly higher during this time period, as it's when the island has the most tourists. A traveler saves on hotel and tour accommodations by visiting the island during another month.
