A Recent Review of this tour

Pieter was a super guide for our family. Very knowledgeable about area and the history all along our tour. He was very professional and helpful with lots of fun facts. His real passion was the Wine Tasting part of the tour. In the winery, it was so wonderful to have someone that know the owner, knew the winery, knew the process, and knew the wines......very well. Great overall experience!
