Watch the Experience
The itinerary was extremely well thought out. Our vacation was classified as "recreational" but a couple of us wanted something more challenging. No problem - Dan and Jake were happy to arrange. Every day included enjoyable coffee, lunch and/or wine tasting stops. The welcome dinner on the first night and the farewell dinner and cocktails on the last evening were truly excellent.
