Manuel was a great tour guide! He was very accommodating, making sure we had plenty of water on our journey and plenty of time at each space. When our lunch spot was closed he took us to a local tacos place that was MAGNIFICENT. We truly appreciated this gem that was off the road. Such a relaxing and lovely day!

The selection of the wineries that we visited were excellent, everything was perfect, the attention and knowledge of Luigi, our guide, could not be better. An unforgettable tour, my partner and I loved it. We will definitely do it again.

Everything was excellent, Mr. Manuel's treatment was really very good. I hope to return soon and be treated again with him.
