Did not meet any of our expectations
Sep 2018 • Friends
This tour was such a disappointment! It was a complete waste of my money! Here's why:

1. We visited a winery that had it's building under renovation. So, the sight was not a nice sight to see or visit at all.
2. We walked into the building, sampled three wines and walked out. It took us about 30 minutes. The entire experience was bland. There was no overview of the plantation or demonstration of the process of making wine. I could have much rather had three wines in the comfort of my own home. Such a disappointment!
3. The tour guide continued speaking in Spanish to the other people on the tour. He did try to accommodate the English speakers but MOST of the time he spoke Spanish. Excuse me did I sign up for a Spanish speaking tour? Complete waste of my 65 euros.
4. The tour felt rushed. We left late because the other tour attendees were not ready and rushed back to city center.

Overall, I do not recommend this tour.
