Great trip. I had 4 large glasses of wine. Informative trip to vineyard. Goats cheese amazing and nice meats. Drivers and wine tasting host were great. Only thing that would have made it better was a little seat during tasting.

I can only highly recommend this tour. We had our safari tour with Georg as our guide and it was very entertaining.

Brilliant trip tour guide had great knowledge about everything to do with wine.

The tour guide (lady), can’t remember her name I’m afraid was excellent!!

Perfect. Guide at the top!!! In line with our expectations.
