A Recent Review of this tour

Gabriel was an experienced guide who gave great directions on how to find him from the cruise pier. We were a bit surprised to have both a guide (Gabriel) and driver, which explained why the tour was more expensive than some of the other tours we took. We opted to go the a winery with a tasting, which was fun to try.
