Best guded tour ever!

We made a mistake when booking (wrong city for pick up location) and delayed the trip by more than an hour! Our guide, João, did not spare any efforts and was able to reshuffle the whole schedule to make sure we had the best experience! His professionalism was outstanding and his knowledge of the wine region and Portugal is commendable. History, politics, culture, wine making life in Portugal are only a few of the subjects he covered. He was very attentive to our needs and adapted the schedule to fit our interests. He gave us tips for the next part of our journey. We definitely had the royal treatment.
