Reviews of customers that have enjoyed one of these tours from Madrid to Barcelona

Excellent wine tour! "I have been on several wine tours throughout Europe and this one is my favorite, as it far exceeded my expectations. Giuseppe was so nice and was extremely knowledgeable about the region, wines, wine making, the culture".
Tasting at Dinastis Vivanco winery in Rioja

Having a chance to visit family owned wineries was something we enjoyed the most. We also really appreciated the option of the Madrid to Barcelona Itinerary, as it allowed us to fly in and out of Barcelona as part of a Barcelona / Madrid organized tour. Hugo was great as a Guide. We were not sure what we would encounter. Having someone who could share history and information about the areas where we traveled was a definite plus. Thanks Again to Hugo and all the Staff at winetourism for allowing us to experience this special part of Spain.

Paul & Robin, California
What a great trip! Would thoroughly recommend this trip. Much more intimate than a general tour with lots of people. Raul and Guiseppe are amazing - very knowledgeable regarding the wine and the local area and both very charming and personable. We visited a winery that has been in the family for 400 years and one of the owners conducted the tour which was a real treat. The caves are a must see. Would definitely do another trip with Wine Toursim Spain

Sorry this has taken so long. We had a wonderful time and our guide was outstanding and knowledgeable. The wineries we visited were all unique and offered something different. We loved the towns you selected for overnights. Burgos was really a nice town. We would like to come back and tour more wineries.
