    Our trip was fabulous!!! Our boat captain was very entertaining and made the trip so much more enjoyable than I expected. He entertained us until the very minute we got off the boat. The wine tasting was great. We had three generous samples of wine and some light snacks that were more than enough. Stopping to swim was refreshing considering it was quite warm the day we went. When we got on the boat at the beginning of the trip, we were all strangers, but at the end, we parted as friends.

    Very nice tour. Driver was very friendly and kind. The boat ride was long and fun. The wine tasting was very good too. Tried 3 wines and there were more than enough snacks. If you liked, you could still jump into the lake to swim. Everything was very successful. It is best to wear swimwear under your clothes.
