I loved Stefan, he is a great guide, he explained absolutely everything in two languages and also provided small details such as the final store of a winery that was not included or a couple of stops to see the grapes or take extra photos, which is very much appreciated.

Excellent guide, can't remember the name. We were Swedish and Spanish and the guide switched between Spanish and English very nicely. The guide was always informative. Ev. I would have liked to visit another wine cellar. In Vittoria we mostly walked around and had some free time for coffee. But overall, a nice excursion, fun to see the surroundings and the beautiful scenery.

Great day for exploring Spain's wine country!

This was a really fun tour. We had a wonderful guide who gave us good information and made it very enjoyable. The wine tour they provided of a small boutique winery was exceptional. We also loved having some time on our own to explore these two marvelous towns and enjoy a very delicious lunch. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get a general feel for the area in a one day span. It made us all want to return to the region and explore more.
