We have gone on several winery tours in the past, but this one by far surpasses them all. There were many factors that made this one the best. The first was our phenomenal tour guide, Andreas. His amazing knowledge on both the history of wine in the area and the science behind wine making were superb. He delivers the information with great passion and in a very friendly way. Next, was the unbelievable food that his wife prepared for us and how the wine was paired with each of the four courses. Overall, between the walk through the vineyard and meal, the tour was an incredible 6 plus hours that just seemed to fly by.

Great trip! We were a very small group, the trip was smooth and overall enjoyable. It felt more personal. Keiko, our tour guide, was very helpful and knowledgeable. Would definitely book with them again!

Our tour guide was great, and we met some great people along the way. Loved the restaurant and the wine at the wine tasting was phenomenal.

Peter was wonderful, informational and entertaining. He knows wine, and the region very well. Great tour.

Very beautiful cruise tour and cable car journey. Lunch also great
