An informative and enjoyable tour!

Paulo was knowledgeable, engaging and fun. He made the tour fantastic. He showed us many things that we never would have found on our own. We are so happy with our wine experience in Portugal!

Perfect day!

We learnt lots about wine and the local area from Rod - nothing was too much trouble and we received so much more than we expected - thank you!

Traveling with Paulo was a pleasure and a learning experience.

Paulo drove us around and told us about each vineyard, church and restaurant that we visited. The time flew by and we were treated to a really great experience.
