Not worth it. A few steps from the square of Neptune there, which we already knew. Try three glasses of wine and bread with mortadella. The site although they say it is old, is restored, modern style. The owner explains to you the wines you try to fulfill. The companion very friendly and gave us a very good conversation. He did his job. You can do it alone without taking this tour. It makes no sense with the price they charge.

Not considered a wine tasting. You are taken to a local restaurant and given 3 local wines and a snack. Neither the owner of the restaurant or the guide had adequate knowledge of wines. The one wine we liked they did not have in stock to purchase. Was not worth the cost of the tour.
