We had a great time on this half day tour. Toni picked us up at our hotel and took us out to Pago de Tharsys winery in Requena. He has a wealth of knowledge about wine, the region and vineyard we toured, and Spain in general. This was our first wine tour and we were amazed at the number of wines and liquors we were able to sample. He was a great compliment for the winery staff member. After the winery we went to the small nearby town of Requena. Toni was very knowledgeable of the rich history of the area. Do this tour!

We had an excellent experience in October 2012 with Toni Martin and Valencian Cellar Tours. Toni picked us up at our hotel and drove us very comfortably to Requena. Toni put together a wonderful experience and his knowledge of Spanish wines is amazing. Toni provided us with quite an education. We toured the Torreoria Winery in the morning and Pago de Tharsys in the afternoon. We had a lovely tour of Requena mid day and visited the Castillo y Murallas de Requena followed by lunch steps from the castle at Los Cubillos restaurant. Great experience with Toni! Please remember that wine tasting in Spain is not like the USA. Give Toni several days lead time to arrange the right tour for you. Jeff L

I found Valencian Cellar Tours searching the internet. Wasn't quite sure what to expect but the day was excellent. Toni Martin took us door to door from our hotel to the wineries. In Spain tastings are much different as Toni is given carte blanche to tour us through the wineries as well as the tastings. His knowlege was quite impressive and the wines were very good. Our lunch inbetween tastings was at a small restaurant in Requena that you would never find on your own and the food was amazing. My wife and I had a wonderful time and would recommend this trip to anyone visiting the area!!!

Tony Martin was an outstanding tour guide -- extremely knowledgeable about wines, the particular vineyards, the history of the region, restaurants,local dishes, and activities. He was very prompt for the pick-up, is Irish (so English is not a problem), and responsive to the individual needs among the group. The vineyards were about an hour outside of the city. It was a highlight of our time in Valencia.

We arranged an all-day wine tour with Toni Martin, who runs a wine and bike tour agency. We alerted him that one of our six-person group was quite knowledgeable, and Toni rose to the occasion. He selected two wineries in the Requena area, one hour west of Valencia, and provided a van and lunch to create a memorable day of wine-tasting. He knows a tremendous amount about wine in general and Spanish and Valencian wines in particular, and did an outstanding job of explaining the wine-making process and answering questions about varietals and techniques. He also knows the local winemakers, adding a personal touch to the experience.

Our tour included a lovely three-course lunch (with wine, of course!) at a restaurant right on the old square in Requena. We tried the local Gaspacho Manchego, a stew of chicken, rabbit, and dumplings that we would never have known about otherwise.

Toni was very attentive to the needs of our group, which included two people with limited mobility. He is also an avid biker, and runs bicycle tours of the city, although we didn't have time to participate in one.

Highly recommended!
