This was a fantastic trip. The ship docked at a different place than you were expecting, but the tour guide found us no problem. We Got to 4 extraordinary wineries, one of which had an organic restaurant to die for. We got to the Makana Chocolate Factory even tho it was not actually on the tour itinery (a wonderful stop)! The tour group was small and we did not have to wait for 80-90 people to get on/off the bus. Viator.com, you Rock. Frank, Honolulu.

Great trip in a small group. Plenty of wines/wines with a flexible itinerary. The lunch stop at Geisens for a tasting and lunch was value for money. A day well spent.

Carol was our guide. We had a small group and visited the vineyards in a mini van. We had time to do 5 stops during the day. An excellent lunch was planned with sufficient time to rest and chat. Carol is very knowledgeable of the region and she communicated very well. Morning pickup and return to the ship was flawless. Thank you!
