What a fabulous day! The admin at the start of the trip was handled smoothly and we were soon on our way to Montserrat. Our tour guide Luis was fabulous. He was friendly, funny and truly seemed to want us to have the best time. Montserrat was beautiful and we had just the right amount of time for the guided tour and then plenty of free time. The lunch at the winery was simple but well executed and tasty. Extra drinks for us thirsty wine drinkers were available at a very reasonable cost. The wine tasting was interesting and Luis knew his stuff, although another couple of wines would have been good. The group size of 16 was just right - the opportunity to meet like minded wine buffs - but not too many! I would thoroughly recommend this tour - especially if Luis is your guide!
