We had a fantastic time on our tour! The wineries we visited really were hidden gems, we really enjoyed the tastings and lunch was amazing. Alan is a brilliant guide- very helpful, accommodating, informative, entertaining and lots of fun! Would thoroughly recommend doing this tour with Black Swan Tours for a great day out.

Had a great time and was a fantastic experience. Everything went really smoothly and guides were very experienced. Wonderful to learn about the history of the island.

Amazing trip to a spectacular island by ferry and had a nice adventure tour by a fast boat around the island, visiting dolphins and seals. Recommended.

Was a fabulous day, because there was hardly any swell or wind we got into a lot of the beautiful sanctuaries. Definitely recommend. Great hosts.

Alan was great, entertaining, friendly and knowledgeable
