Excellent way to see a bit of the island and enjoy some local wines.

The only negative about this tour was our meeting place. It was a restaurant who insisted we stand in the rain for 5 minutes as we were using up "valuable space" in their entrance. Please note that the only people in their restaurant were the other 2 couples on our wine tour.

We come from a wine country (central California), so it was fun and interesting learning about the different grapes and climate. A pretty ride too.

Guide did not provide any Victoria or winery history during the drive. No wine tours just a generic wine tasting.
