Our guide Rui made it an amazing experience all together ! The skywalk was good to start with, the off-road made it superb and the wine tasting was the icing on the cake. The activity as well as the walking in the vineyard for a short intro about the place; more than really getting the background and visual on how the wine is made. The good company was an nice extra. Worth it !

We enjoyed everything from the trip. We started with drive up the steep incline to the skywalk, the off-road drive & finally the wine tasting at the vineyard. Highly recommended!

This was the best tour! I completely enjoyed the guide and the wine tasting. Lots of fun, even for a solo traveler. Highly recommend!

Richard was a great tour guide and, in addition to the actual tour of the winery, also showed us many viewpoints. Gladly again!

A really chilled ride on a pirate ship and seen dolphins and whales.
