    It was an amazing experience! Our tour guide Luis was so knowledgeable and so fun to be around! He was amazing, very kind and helpful. The meal we received for lunch was nice, soup, duck with potatoes and a desert. My only negative would have to be the final stop of the tour the winery where we tasted some wines. They could have given us more expensive wine to taste considering the price of this tour. We were given bottles that were only 15 euros and under. No one even ended up purchasing a bottle afterwards because of the cheap taste. Other than that the bus we were in was nice and air conditioned and the other parts were very enjoyable.
