Unforgettable Rioja wine tour
Aug 2021 • Couples
Absolutely fantastic wine tour. Learned so much about the Rioja region from our guide Robert. Then the 2 family wineries we were able to visit were each unique and very lovely. Oh, yes, the wine was delicious too! We had a light lunch and short walking tour of the very charming Laguardia as well. Rebeca was responsive from the start, including helping us plan our arrival in Logroño, and the tour was incredibly organized from start to finish. Highly recommend and hope to do it again someday!

Fantastic tour, friendly guide, and an amazing day out in the Rioja countryside
Aug 2021
We enjoyed our private tour with Robert as our host. He's knowledgeable, friendly, and catered to all our needs. We stopped at two very different vineyards and enjoyed a nice al fresco lunch in a charming medieval town. We found the company very accommodating as we were trying to squeeze in a wine tour between two stops on our trip; they were very flexible and they picked us up from the bus station/dropped us off at the train station so that we were able to continue on our journey. We're glad to have met Robert and hope to come back for another tour some day to visit other wineries in the area.

Can't get better than that!
We asked for architecture themed wine tour and it was just that: perfect.
Being a designer and an artist myself, we got Roberto as our guide- who is an architect and an artist.
We went to an ancient winery (Lecea) that keeps tradition alive in an underground labyrinth and than to a futuristic one of kind winery (Viña Real).
We're going to uncork the bottle now that we're back home...

An exciting and instructive perfect tour
Aug 2021
We had an Architectural Wine Tour half day with lunch.
We had an exciting and instructive perfect tour, the right combination of contemporary architecture and the 16th century. The wineries we visited were carefully selected and very suited to the theme; of our interests. Robert and Rebecca took care of every detail and increased when combined explanations in English and Spanish.
Highly recommended.

An memorable tour of the Rioja region.
Aug 2021
We toured a family owned winery and also a winery with a history from the 16th centrury; both were in the rural areas outside Hara and we tasted wine with owners at both places. Then we had lunch and a tour of charming Laguardia. We were enchanted by every part of this 4+ hour experience. We will always remember our time with Rebecca. She was knowledgeable and friendly.

Wonderful experience - just book it!!
We had a wonderful experience in Rioja thanks to Rebeca. We arrived last minute in Rioja and although Rebeca could not fit us into her group tour, she was able to arrange for us to do an AMAZING self-tour to two very interesting and unusual bodegas as well as lunch. We really enjoyed the personal welcome at these wineries and all the hard work that Rebeca put in at short notice for us, two complete strangers - she really pulled it off. Thank you so much for making our trip to Rioja so special, we will definitely be better organized next time and will be sure to give Rebeca a call when we do!!

Fascinating wine tasting tour in Rioja
Jul 2021
This was a fantastic experience for our family. Rebeca was an excellent guide who shared her knowledge of the region, and put together a perfect half day tour. The family winery we visited provided an intimate experience, with a truly unique and fantastic tasting experience, while the other winery was a great example of older methods of production. Lovely lunch and beautiful tour of the town followed.
Highly recommended, and thoroughly enjoyed by our family.

High Quality, Knowledge, and access to the roads less traveled
Jul 2021
This was by far the best wine tour and tasting I can remember in recent history. Why? First of all Rebeca is flexible and can pivot quickly to meet your needs. We stayed in the Marques and did that wine tour on our own without her. However Rebeca took us to the roads less traveled and we had a more intimate tour with winemakers she picked. The difference between these family vineyards and their cool history is a must see. The Marques (rebeca) imo was just a retail wine tour meant to herd cattle as fast as possible. In the places we went the winemakers served us cheese and meats and it seems to be a coordinated effort to ensure the customer is happy. If you need something special or not the menu, just ask and Rebeca will make it happen giving memories that you cannot purchase. I can't say enough about how much of a highlight of our time in Spain this trip was.

Greatest wine tasting tour in Rioja
Jul 2021
We had the most fantastic experience on the Rioja wine tour with Rebeca. This was a special day for my wife and me since we were celebrating our 43rd wedding anniversary. I had asked Rebeca to make something special for us, and she certainly did!!!

We visited different types of wineries. Each one was special in its unique way. Rebeca knows the owners of the wineries and gave us the opportunity to meet the family and spend time with the enologist that creates the wines. One of the wineries has been in the family for centuries, the winery dated from the XVI century. Here we learned how the wine was made at the time and how the family makes an effort to continue the tradition. We have been in wine tours in Napa and Tuscany but nothing compared to this. Rebeca provided great information on how wine making is strictly regulated by the “Consejo Regulador DOC Rioja” that controls what type of grapes are grown, the productivity of grapes per vine, and multiple factors that may affect the quality of the wine. We also visited a winery that was started by a woman at a time when wineries were only men’s domain. Here, the grandaugher of the founder showed us how the wine matures and takes flavor from different types of oak barrels. We were able to experiment with wine taken from different barrels to create our own flavor.

As part of the romance for our visit, Rebeca organized a picnic with a gorgeous view over the vineyards. This was very special, and she gave us a bottle of wine that had been made by her own family for special ocations. During the picnic we also met her partner Robert and shared some great time together.

At the beginning of the tour, we met a tour guide, at the end of the tour we said goodby to a couple of good friends.

If you are looking for a great tour, look no further, you will not find a better tour guide than Rebeca
