What an amazing trip . Fabulous itinerary and great locations to visit. Our Guide Martin was first class with his knowledge. We never felt like we missed anything other than a few jokes with the Spanish / English translations. Highly recommend this trip. Really well organised and won’t hesitate to join another in the future.

Me ha encantado este tour. Quizás cambiaría el orden respecto a la visita a la bodega. Dejaría la degustación de mejillones para lo último. Lo pasamos tan bien que se pasó volando y sin ganas de bajarnos. Y el personal del barco muy simpático. Repetiría sin duda.
