Tour was excellent, guide was professional and spoke Spanish, Portuguese and English. Vineyards and olive factory which we visited were very good. The visited locations were able to offer us both an English and a Spanish tour which was very appreciated. Pick up was a bit confusing, as I expected to be picked up at 2:30, but was messaged at 1:45 to go to the bus, make sure you’re ready for pickup! Good value for money if you don’t want to spend an entire day on visits!

Had a great time on this tour! Could not have had a better experience - from the tour guides, the locations, and the transport everything was well planned and amazingly executed. Would totally recommend!!!
