This was an unbelievable experience, it was the best tour on our 14 day cruise. Ross was experienced, personable, and warm/friendly. This was beyond a 5 star if there was such a rating.

Our guide, Ross, was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and helpful. The bus was a bit small and couldn't see all the architecture as described by the guide. Would have been nice to be able to get out and take some photos. At the end of the tour, Ross took us to the top of a mountain overlooking the city and sea and we enjoyed some wine and cheese. Lovely thing to do and a great way to end the tour. Ross was also to be commended when one in our party left his camera on the van. Local personnel at the cruise terminal called the contact number and he turned right around and returned to the ship with the errant camera. Highly recommend this tour

Great tour, only a small group. A fascinating way to get to know an area. Our Guide was very knowledgeable and informative. The final touch of having wine and cheese in a vineyard was awesome.

Ian was a great guide. He went above and beyond with a stop at an antique car shop. The final stop was a wine and cheese stop on a hill top. I highly recommend this tour
