A lovely day spent exploring the island with our very knowledgable driver and guide Rui. We got to see parts of the island we wouldn’t otherwise have been able to, including some fun off roading. We were lucky to have great weather and the views were fantastic. The wine tasting at both locations was lovely, and the tour of the vineyard was great, what an amazing place to sample wine and enjoy the views. We did come away with a bottle or two, but there was no pressure to buy. The Land Rover was good fun and having a driver who knew the roads so well and could discuss the history and the sights was brilliant. I would highly recommend- we have only been here for a few days on a short break and this trip has made the holiday. Thank you.

Rui was a friendly and funny guide. We laughed a lot this day. He made our day! Learned a lot of fun facts. Off road is a cool experience. First wine tasting was tasty and nicely organized. The last tasting was something of a let down. Less hospitable and more businesslike.

This tour was way better than we ever imagined. Our tour guide Gill was fantastic; friendly, knowledgeable and a brilliant driver (which was definitely needed on some of his 'shortcut' roads!). Highly recommend this tour for anyone that loves wine and wants to see a lot of what the island has to offer.
