Our tour guide Cyrus was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable. All the wineries he took us to were excellent and each had their own vibe. Would definitely recommend.
I so enjoyed this tour. I booked it on my own, but quickly made friends with the other tour guests. We had so much fun together and our tour guide was accommodating and informative. Would highly recommend this tour, especially to solo female travelers.
So a friendly tour guide and amazing trip and tasting. I like the old VW bus . My Tour colleagues were Really cool
