I hear you on the "another winery" point., although to keep the price competitive and reasonable it must stay at 3 wineries-4 hours. I have longer private tours for more in depth tastings... Thanks for joining in and the great review!

I don't know which winery you are talking about. Sigalas? SAFOWI is a wine tour company. We are not a winery.

She picked us up in her car and drive around and gave us a little history so we did see parts we wouldn't have seen but it is not also a tour of the island
