Customer Reviews

Was een hele leuke dag. Gezellige begeleider. Veel lekkere wijnen geproefd en ook wat gekocht. - C.M. Huffels


Absolutely excellent day from start to finish. Would thoroughly recommend. - jackie kirkby


As a solo traveler I was prepared to be a 5th wheel on what is typically a couples activity, so I was pleasantly surprised when our guide, Terence, created a relaxed, inclusive and familial atmosphere. The group was a mix of singles, couples and ages and everyone was open, friendly got along wonderfully. Let's face it, you've got to get this bit right when a van load of strangers are meant to spend the entire day together! Terence is a very knowledgeable guide, but best of all he's highly enthusiastic without skimping on professionalism. It's clear that he's passionate about his work and has found the perfect profession. The tour itself was very informative and the wineries were each beautiful in their own way. They really did seem well thought out and hand picked. Terence seemed to have a good relationship with the owners and the mutual respect was clear. I'd take this tour again in a heartbeat. I can't recommend it enough. - Kim McCalla


Simply a wonderful experience visiting an interesting variety of vineyards tasting excellent wines & accompanying food, made even more memorable by our superb guide for the day! - Brittany Becker
