This tour was way better than we ever imagined. Our tour guide Gill was fantastic; friendly, knowledgeable and a brilliant driver (which was definitely needed on some of his 'shortcut' roads!). Highly recommend this tour for anyone that loves wine and wants to see a lot of what the island has to offer.

We've done this trip before and enjoyed it so much we decided to do it again. As before it was a great excursion to do, I was even more happier when our driver showed up at the hotel, and it was the same driver Rui from last year. Obviously for us the highlight was the wine tasting. This time we didn't walk through the winery, but that suited us as we got into the tasting room and onto the wine. Who knows maybe even do it again next year.

First of all thank you to Ruben for a wonderful day. He was at all times courteous and friendly and above all professional. The tour was made even more enjoyable by his extensive knowledge of the Island. The highlight of the day for us was the vineyard tour and Wine Tasting. This part of the tour was led by Carla who is extremely knowledgeable and a joy to talk to. We cannot recommend this tour highly enough.
