5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

Loved the small group tour. Much better than the large group ones. Our driver/guide was interesting and had tons of information to share with us the whole trip. The three Vineyards were very different, so it made it more interesting. The pottery factory was a nice change. The meal was great, so was the coffee stop.
