Great tour - ebikes and our guide Stella were both great. Stella saw we appreciated nature so took us on a route that made the most of that. we tried delicious wine, ham and cheese and learned about the surrounding area. The bikes were easy to use and meant we could cover a large distance in the day. very memorable experience. thanks! would recommend

Everything about this experience was amazing. Our driver, Max, was phenomenal. The staff at both wineries were incredibly friendly, helpful, and interesting. The wines were delicious and unique - most of them were unlike wines you find in the U.S., France, etc. Finally, the lunch was fantastic. Highly recommend this experience.
