Waste of time

The tour guide operator was very bad, did not knew anything about the place, has to google every place we question, in fact the tour started by asking us “did you research the place and what you will do?” Clearly he had no idea about the place. He was a “driver” but not a tour guide, it was like hiring a taxi and go on our own. They booked a wine tasting with ONE wine?? Who does that??? The tour operator Gold Tour was really bad....I am very dissapointed since this was a $596 tour. My recommendation for other people be careful about the tour operator you get assigned.
