This is a great way to see the island. Our guide Michael was awesome and showed us a lot of the island from a resident point of view which we would not have otherwise seen. Also his knowledge of the wineries and food places was great. We are definitely doing this again.

Great experience right from the first phone call. All arrangements were clear and included ferry tickets. Our guide Bil was friendly, knowledgeable and gave us just the right amount of talk and tales. The 3 wineries we visited were all different and each unique in its own way.
