This was a very authentic local experience and not at all touristy. It was helpful to have some knowledge of German, although the guide had enough English to make it also an enjoyable experience without being able to speak German. There was a surprising amount of wine consumed, and very little hiking- just a gentle stroll from one drinking spot to another!
