Great tour. Highly recommended, the visited fincas were very authentic and our tour guides Kristina and Anna-Maria with heart and soul. The fruits came directly from the tree. Tasty wine and olive oil at Fernando. Wonderfully sat under the olive trees and eaten. Unforgettable a little kid on the arm. Tour is well organized. Pick up punctually directly at the hotel. Have learned a lot. Thank you, gladly come again.

The tour was an absolute highlight of the vacation. A super nice idea and just the right amount of impressions, not too much, not too little. It was great to get an impression of the locals and their culinary specialties and it was also totally delicious. I can only recommend the tour, it is also designed with love and heart by everyone involved. Thanks for the great day!

It was a wonderful trip! Annemarie, our guide was just perfect for us. We were also very fortunate that the group was a great fit in and of itself. We had these two great hiking sections and talked about God and the world during the whole trip. I can only recommend it and if you are lucky you will also get Annemarie as a guide. Have fun! ;-)

Thank you for the great and interesting food tour. With a lot of love, great regional products were presented to us with all the senses.
