The Gourmet wine tour was awesome. Very knowledgeable staff at the vineyards and Olive Grove. Delicious food to compliment the wine tastings - oysters, cheese, chocolate brownie and very nice platter for lunch. Bill our tour guide was amazing - very friendly and knowledgeable and made the day. Thanks for a great day.

Not only was the tour incredible and a must see but the lunch and wine were to die for too. most importantly the fabulous tour wouldn’t be complete without an amazing tour guide neither . Michael from Ananda was the best tour guide who also made our trip the amazing experience it was. I am a travel agent from Australia and would highly recommend this tour company and guide. Thank you so much 🙏🏼

What an amazing day celebrating some birthday's! Our tour guide Michael (Mikey G) was great with providing local knowledge of the island, was a real laugh and even turned into our own personal photographer! It was clear that he has built great relationships with the people at the vineyards we visited. The place we visited for lunch (three seven two) was AMAZING. Easily the best steak I have ever had! We unfortunately missed the ferry we were meant to catch and I just wanted to thank Ananda tours and Michael for rearranging things to accommodate and still make it the best day, we all appreciated it! Will definitely be coming back again!
