“Amazing wine tasting/gastronomic day tour in Rioja”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

My husband and I had an amazing time with Natalia as she took us on a custom day tour of various bodegas in Rioja. We have visited the following bodegas: Lopez Heredia, Rioja Alta, Visit and delicious 3 course lunch at Baigorri, Walk around Ysios and pictures, Carlos San Pedro Bodega in Laguardia. In all of these wineries we had a private tastings and private tours, sometimes from the wine owners themselves! We got to try wine directly from the aging vat - it was amazing. Our Spanish is very poor, so Natalia was able to translate everything and we got a very "local" treatment that we would not get without her. During the tour planning process, the company was very flexible and also helped us plan the trip outside of the tour. Highly recommended!

“Knows her stuff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Because of schedule conflicts had less then a week to plan second half of Spain vacation. I wish I had Cristina plan the Whole thing. Rented a car and they did the rest according to the requested guidelines. A tapas tour in Seville made finding and enjoying real non-touresty Tapa bars easy. When I go back to Spain, I will use them again.

“Great trip to rioja”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We took a tour to rioja with vintage spain and it was just fantastic. they arrange everything from transport to hotels, winery visit, guides, restaurants, with no problem. We were happy that they suggested wineries but also they included what we wanted. We took the train to logrono and they picked us there. We 'll certainly recomend them.

“Wine and tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

What a way to spend a night in Madrid! With our guide Ismael the four of us had a most entertaining and informative few hours walking through the old part of Madrid and visiting 5 different wine and tapas bars.

Not only did we enjoy many beautiful wines (and cervesas and sangria for our young adult children) and delicious tapas but also we were given a fascinating insight into the history of Madrid and Spain, as well of course an introduction to the various wine regions of Spain. We tasted several luscious Riojas and a very pleasant verdelho and the tortilla patatas and grilled green pimentos became firm favourites.

Ismael was so professional, entertaining and informative that the night just rushed by - a delightful blend of history, geography, modern social commentary, food and wine. A marvellous introduction to Spain.

“Great wine tasting experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We have never been to Spain before! I found this company online and booked a day wine trip in Ribera Del Duero and a tapas tour of Madrid. Both were fantastic! They were the highlights of our trip! The guides were awesome! This company was top notch! They picked fantastic wineries(Torremilanos and Val Sotillo), lunch was unbelievable in Ribera at El Lagar de Isilla! If you are going to Madrid, book a trip or two with this company early in your visit. All the knowledge the guides will give you will be a huge asset for the rest of your stay!
