We have just finished our tour with our excellent driver, Cosmin. Cos was superb in every way! He made sure we kept to our schedule, personally introduced us to each host at the wineries, checked us into our hotels and assisted us at all times with our luggage and purchases. Cos has a delightful demeanor, and his knowledge of the region, wineries and culture was very informative. Wine Tourism Spain’s selection of wineries gave us a good overview of the two regions from small family owned wineries to the bigger production ones. The lunchesl were gourmet delights! The Laguardia hotel in the walled city was a real treat! Thank you for your attention to each and every detail!

Our guide was very professional, interesting and knowledgeable. And we loved that we did not have to worry about driving and could enjoy the amazing wines. Everything was well planned and top quality. We would definitely recommend this private tour.
