My husband and I had the most lovely wine tour with Tiffany. Not only did we learn about the wine region and the best vineyards, but also about living in the area as a local and so many great ideas for our next trip. It was wonderful, and I am definitely recommending it to my parents when they visit next year.Megan- Seattle
