We visited two wineries with tastings and a few small towns. The first winery gave us a plate of sliced meat and cheese. The driver guide did a very good job. We had a good time and bought some wine. The only problem was there was no step stool to get into the van. This is difficult for people like me so I needed help from someone every time.

One of the best experience we had. Very organized and value of money, specially the wine testings. If you are wine a lover we recommend this tour without doubt.
