"My wife and I decided to book the 2 full day tour with We could not be happier with the experience. Our guide was amazing!! Very friendly and informative. He really knew his stuff when it comes to the wines in the various regions as this is his background, and he also knows a great deal about the history of Spain and the important attractions/buildings/cities that are visited throughout the tour. All of the wineries that we visited were phenomenal, and we ended up sending wine home from many of them.
