Our guide Marcio was fabulous - he was very informative and patient with our group. His driving was excellent and the tour was very good. Views were spectacular. As some had not had breakfast, he made an extra stop so no one would start drinking without food. The first stop was a large winery, but the tour was good. We particularly liked the boat ride which was private for 16 persons only - much better that the boats crowded with many people. The second winery was small and again only for 16 of us which was much more personal and port was excellent. Ask him for his restaurant list - we tried one and it was fantastic.
Great trip Luis driver/guide made it
