Pamela our local tour lady is amazing. She grew up there. Knows the area inside out. Wine tour is fantastic. Excellent choice of vineyards. The lunch restaurant she took us to was a must. It was a beautiful vineyard/restaurant. The food was out of this world and price is cheap. The chocolate shop and local highlights were great. You will need a local person like Pamela to show you. Don't waste your money with cruise ship. You will not be disappointed it with Pamela and her crew. Thank you Pamela for a wonderful day and memory.

The tour provided a very good mix of wineries, sightseeing, shopping, and a visit to a chocolate factory. The tour guide, Pam, was fabulous. Would highly recommend.

Pamela March tour owner worked so hard to make this tour a success. Only problem was not really a small group tour. Each minivan bus crowded and hot and two busses traveling together made 22 people in each stop not what we had expected. However, Winery tours were wonderful and lunch stop very good. Cheese tasting a joke as barely a morsel to taste. Chocolate factory great. All in all a good day just not exactly what we had envisioned.

Enjoyable wine tour.... for sure! The tour operator did a great job showing us the area and made a point to get to know his guests. The trip went as presented, was relaxing, and a lot of fun! A Good Value!
