What people are saying about Bavaria

Diane was a wonderful guide, fun conversationalist, and taught us so much. We did this tour for my daughter's birthday and it was great fun for all (even me and I am not a wine person). I would love to take another tour with Diane sometime in the future and highly recommend her.

Great trip! We were a very small group, the trip was smooth and overall enjoyable. It felt more personal. Keiko, our tour guide, was very helpful and knowledgeable. Would definitely book with them again!

Very nice guide, very knowledgeable and refreshing quotes and explanations
