    I wished more experiences on wine yards. Now we visited one place were we got to taste wine and got to know a bit about wine making. Also we visited one place with nice view and tasted some wines which guide had with him. That was perfectly nice, but I missed more experiences in wine yards.

    Really good excursion. Met promptly, guide, transport and fellow travellers all excellent. Start the day off with 3 tastings and a croissant overlooking vineyards and valleys before moving onto the most beautiful village for a half hour wander. Finally a vineyard visit- 5 more tastings with cheese/meat selection for 2nd breakfast. Guide very knowledgable, interesting. All questions easily answered. Able to purchase wine at the vineyard if wanted. Arrived back at pickup point about 4 hours after leaving.

    Such an amazing experience! Definitely will recommend you to book it! I would advice you to have some breakfast before that tour! Our meeting point has been changed, but we've been notified 2 days in advance. Small group of 8 +Guide/driver (Christopher, if im not wrong), perfectly speaks English and gave us all information during the tour. 3 stops around Golden Stones Village. 1st picknick stop by the Chapel with the beautiful views. 2nd stop -walk around Old village. 3rd stop by the vineyard Dominans where we learnt about grape planting, cultivation and how wine produced. Finished with the lovely wine tasting with some snacks.
