ITINERARY - Bilbao or San Sebastian tour to Madrid

This is probably the best way to get to Madrid from Bilbao or San Sebastian. Spain´s real character is discovered at small villages like the ones covered in this tour, which offers a comfortable way to enjoy in 2 days amazing scenery and local traditions.
Roads in Spain are very safe. Part of the tour uses motorways, part high quality local roads.

What follows is the most typical itinerary though some variations in the wineries and hotel chosen may happen depending on availability at the time of booking.

Day 1: Bilbao or San Sebastian to Rioja

You will picked up at around 8:30 by your friendly expert guide. After a short drive through motorway the landscape will change and Rioja wine country will welcome you.
The wine tour will start in Haro, a landmark in Spain´s wine map. From Haro you will be driven towards Rioja Alavesa to enjoy some of the most spectacular landscapes in Rioja, with the impressive Sierra de Cantabria mountain range protecting the vineyards located at both sides of the Ebro river.
You will enjoy wine tastings at 3 different wineries in Rioja. The wineries sill have been selected to ensure a great mix of wines and also different philosophies. You will also enjoy a high quality Riojan meal at a traditional restaurant and be dropped off at your fantastic hotel for a well-deserved rest. Tonight you will be able to enjoy tapas in Laguardia, a beautiful walled village with excellent bars and taverns.

Day 2: Rioja – Ribera del Duero - Madrid

On day 2, you will be picked up from your accommodation in Laguardia and be driven to your next destination, an amazing historical winery in Ribera del Duero. You will be amazed by the beauty of this winery and also by the explanations from the owner. After this first visit your local guide will take you to one of the most elegant wine states in Ribera del Duero, where you will also enjoy your meal with views over the wine barrels. The menu will include local special dishes and we believe will be one of the highlights of your trip to Spain.
Afer lunch you will safely be driven to Madrid, your end destination. Your guide will be able to provide you ideas and suggestions on the best way to spend your time in Madrid.

My husband and I had a wonderful time on our two-day tour. We visited three wineries each day, and we were pleased that there were a mix/variety of settings, ranging from a intimate/family-owned boutique winery to more commercial/established wineries with stunning facilities and scenery. We felt welcome at each location, and enjoyed tasting some excellent wines (a good mix of whites and reds). We've done quite a bit of wine tasting (Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles, etc), and we were not disappointed at all in the quality and variety of the wines we were able to enjoy during this tour. Additionally, the opportunity to learn more about the history and culture of the area was fantastic. Raul is a knowledgeable, engaging, and professional guide. He made sure we stayed on schedule, but never made us feel rushed. One of the many highlights of our experience was lunch at Ribera del Duero -delicious lamb straight out of the wood-burning oven, fresh rustic bread and a crisp salad, plus a locally produced digestif. Our overnight stay in Burgos was lovely, and we enjoyed our evening wandering the town and eating tapas This tour was well-organized and immensely enjoyable- we would repeat it again in a heartbeat.
