The process from booking to dropping us off at our hotel at the end was done without fuss, and hassle free. Our guide was engaging and our driver was professional. We thought the vineyard guide was at times a little hesitant, but was able to provide a reasonable overview of the workings of the vineyard. Surprised the vineyard only offered shipping to the USA as we would have liked to order some cases for Europe.

The guide was smart, witty and very positive thru the entire tour. Our driver was careful and friendly. A lot of helpful information was given.

Perfectly organized tour. Guillermo, exceptional guide, made us visit wonderful corners of the city.
