+Johny is very knowledgeable. He knows the region very well. With a Mercedes Vito with pickup, we went on a wonderful tour, which I can only recommend. -The food leaves a lot to be desired! The vegetarian food that we ordered and ate in the restaurant planned for the tour consisted of spaghetti with tomato soup, the mushrooms and tomato soup are from the glass and unfortunately you can taste it. Plenty of garlic was added to this, but unfortunately the food of the other participants also left a lot to be desired. Each dish cost €16.00 - in the end this price was simply too high for the reasons mentioned. One could have expected much more!

A nice friendly guide knows a lot about the area. And takes the time and gives you enough time to look around and discover things for yourself.

It was an amazing trip! Bruno our driver was fantastic! So knowledgeable of the area, the winery and the crops grown here as well!
