…they all say fabulous things, and our experience proved them all true. Flexible, warm, professional, caring, knowledgeable—but I want to also talk about why it’s a great value! We were excited to do the trip though it was a bit of a splurge, or so I thought. If we were to do it on our own, cost of gas, tolls, Starbucks breakfast/coffees, delicious local lunch, amazing farm-to-table dinner, unlimited waters/beverages in the van, 3 wonderful wine tastings and snacks at award winning vineyards, adds up to a lot. Then consider the stress of border crossing (in regular lane unless you have Global Entry), driving the whole way yourself, not knowing where to go or what’s good, language barrier if you don’t speak Spanish, and using the wine spittoon cause you’re driving 😫
No, comfy Mercedes van with awesome tunes while Ryan and Olivia handle every detail is definitely worth every penny (they should charge more actually). One of our group wanted tacos and they made time to stop for “the best El Pastor tacos in the Valle” (and they were!) Another wanted to buy honey and olive oil, which they found for us (locally grown olives and local honey at a little stand).
Ryan and Olivia generously shared with us their knowledge, enthusiasm and love for this magical region!
