Overall rating

(144 reviews)

the ambiance really appealed to me. A world opened up for me. There's a lot involved and a lot of experimenting, right down to ripening it under water. The cheeses were delicious! The wine excellent. This excursion was very worthwhile

Good price-performance ratio. A bit of a long wait in between because we had to wait for the participants on the Spanish-speaking tour. But everyone was very nice and otherwise well organized.

We had a fantastic time. We booked many activities whilst here and this was my favourite. Caleb was so knowledgeable and made the experience a delight. What a great guy and a great day.

Really nice your with knowledgeable guide, tasty wines, cheese worth talking about and a bit of a surprise with some of the shows they stage here. Great quality tasting.
