An overall good tour. We really enjoyed the wine tasting because you could taste 11 different wines and thus get a good impression. The monastery tour afterwards was also nice. We might have wished for more time in Signaghi. Good value for money, but we liked the other tours we booked better as they seemed less touristy.
