Would be nice to have a selection for lunch and individual dessert servings. More wine varieties too. There was a couple who got lost during the first stop and we had to leave for the next stop without them. I rated this as good because we could keep to the schedule.

I thought the wine tasting would take over the guided trip so we would not have much chance to see the beautiful hill towns. However it turned out to be we had sufficient time to view all three towns which are really stunningly beautiful. The tour guide always tried his best to describe about these towns and the wine tasting main points in two different languages which was amazing.

The tour was good but although the guide was very clear and spoke excellent English and French she was not engaging or interactive at all with those on the tour. A few of us on the tour found her quite unfriendly . The guides on other tours I have been on can really add to the positive experience with energy and some humour.
