Tafadhali was an incredible guide! His top-notch customer service was with us all day long. This tram system runs like a well-oiled machine and it’s the PERFECT way to see and TASTE 3-5 vineyards in one day. The people are so kind and knowledgeable. You can tell the really know their stuff! Our package included 3 wine tastings but we paid for an extra one at Bartinney which was our favorite of the day! Delicious views, cheese and meat platters and wines!

Our driver shafiek was amazing! We had a wonderful group of people / lots of laughing. We enjoyed all of the wines. I highly recommend the this tour.
