Good tour. Could have been better if the bus had parked closer to the beach. It was a very long walk up to the bus. The bus ride was very interesting.

Highly recommended this tour company for any trip. The roads are very narrow so we were delighted to be on a...

Windy beach but otherwise great time! Perfect timing to arrive at the beach as we got our pick of the sun beds and umbrellas before it got too full. Would have appreciated more time at the winery to taste all the wines they provided. Felt a bit rush.
