My husband and I were looking to include Ribera del Duero and Rioja in our 2-week trip to Spain. We feel quite lucky to have found this tour through Wine Tourism Spain. 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.

Highlight of our trip! The price seemed expensive at first but everything was included and we did not have to worrry about a thing. The wineries were very different & everyone was very nice. Could not have asked for more.
