“Perfect time with the best tour guides (Chef Ricardo and Suzanne) and the sights they took us to visit…Well! There is no way to describe the beauty, you just have to experience this adventure. A trip of a lifetime! I also need to mention the food was phenomenal. There is nothing like incredible food, beautiful landscape and WINE with two people that have everything completely planned…all required is to sit back and enjoy!” – Martha & Mike, South Carolina
