We had a private wine tour of the La Rioja region with Marta (our guide) and Inyaki (the driver). We visited 3 wineries and had a marvelous multi-course lunch, did some sight-seeing and picture taking, as well as learning a lot about the region. Before long it felt as though we were traveling with friends rather than professional guides, they were so very warm and friendly. The company was easy to work with, very accommodating and understanding when we had a last minute change. This was not an inexpensive tour, but the experience was first-class from start to finish and very much worth it. Highly recommended!
