Good value for money. Tour guide was very friendly and energetic. Nice journey and stops. Only cons were 1. Pick-up point - we were given a street address. Was kind of expecting a sign or someone will be there to greet us so we were walking around trying to find where exactly we need to wait or go. We rang them eventually, so just note this. 2. Castle is closed so we only get to look from the outside.

Very great experience. I have been called 1 day before and Tour Operator suggested to swap quad to buggy as they were getting customers feedback that riding quad for 6 hours is not really comfy for 2 people on it. We agreed to swap and this was really good decision as otherwise riding one quad with two people on it will be overkilling.

Our guide was the best part. He was so knowledgeable on the area. He had a great personality, you could tell he cared about his job and cared about us his guests. Very worthwhile tour. Strongly recommend it

Brilliant trip tour guide had great knowledge about everything to do with wine.

The tour guide (lady), can’t remember her name I’m afraid was excellent!!
