This excursion was worth all that we paid for it! We had a very busy trip up until this point and this was such a pleasant change. Very low key, very well organized. Our drivers were very kind and very helpful, but they were not “tour guides”. They would drop us off and give us a time to meet back up, which was totally perfect for us and allowed us to prioritize what we wanted!

I loved how the guides took us to the places they recommended us to see, gave us a brief introduction to the places, and gave us some time on our own to take in the sights and places. The food was excellent, the winery exquisite, would definitely do it again.
