I had a wonderful time with the tour. Our guide Karen was super friendly and knowledgeable. The wine tasting was good although early drinking isn’t my thing. The cruise was just lovely and the food was amazing. I was not impressed by the burgers and sausages that were initially served but mussels and salmon were just fantastic! And we had more than enough that we fed the leftover to the ducks and the fishes.

Interesting activity because varied with visits to the vineyards (or rather wine tasting) in the morning, small cruise in the afternoon after a decent meal on the boat, despite a little gloomy weather we had a very good day. We did not see the planned salmon farming ....
