Although we highly recommend to have a guide with you in order to have a full experience, enjoy a full immersion on local culture and learn all the secrets of our wines and region, if you prefer not to have a guide, we can also offer you the option of having the tour with driver only if you need to reduce the final price. Ask us if you prefer this option.
My husband and I toured with Thabuca Wine Tours as a day trip to Rioja from Bilbao and are so glad we did!!! An all day affair, we visited Muga and Ostatu Vineyards, saw parts of the charming towns of Laguardia and Labastida and finished up with a delicious meal at Amelibia before heading back to Bilbao.The wines, vineyards and Rioja scenery were absolutely perfect (and of course why we went in the first place) but what really made this tour a 5 star experience was the pleasure of Marta (our guide) and Inaki’s (our driver) company. Learning about Basque culture / Rioja life in the region first hand was as much of a highlight for us as learning about/drinking the wine! Eskerrik asko!
