    From the pick up to the drop off, loved every second of this. Comfy transport, great views, great people and great tour guide! Not to mention the wine and vodka and chocolate. My friend and I took this trip together and boy were we happy with it. As two English girls, we do like our alcohol but it was a real treat to learn more about the making of our delicious friend and tasting different types of vodka also went down a treat. Each spot we stopped at had scenic views and a certain type of wine they specialised in so it was good to get that variety. My favourite was the last spot where we were welcome with waggy tails as two dogs approached the van and remained my best friends throughout. 10/10 trip. Definitely a must do!
