Overall, the trip was enjoyable with beautiful countryside, interesting little towns and stops along the way to a delicious dinner with great company. The wine tasting was a bit disappointing, as the wines served were a bit 'cheap' tasting. However, the picturesque castle and overlook area was still enjoyable. The tour guide was informative and fun, and her accent wasn't too strong. Dinner was very good and a nice way to meet new friends from all over the world. If you want a sampling of the countryside and some great photo ops, this is the trip for you. If you prefer a long leisurely day at your own pace, try going solo via car or find rooms in the country.
