Other visitors’ opinion on the Rioja Getaway tour

Unforgettable experience in La Rioja

I hardly ever write reviews on Trip Advisor but this experience was so fantastic that I just had to share our experience with others.

Inma was very responsive from the moment I reached out regarding booking a wine tasting tour. I liked several of her tours and she was able to blend an all-day, one of a kind experience for us. She handled all the details based on our requests, booked English guided tours at wineries and provided a detailed itinerary. I corresponded with her quite a bit as I would read up on the area and would ask all kinds of questions. She answered all of them promptly and even helped make arrangements for other things we wanted to do while we were in the area.
The morning of our tour she picked us promptly in the morning and took us to our first winery. We had a guided tour of Marques de Riscal along with a tasting. It was probably the best guided wine tour we have ever taken and we have been to a lot! We then visited two other wineries before stopping for lunch in San Vicente de la Sonsierra. Inma prepared a delicious homemade lunch (iberico ham, olives, cheese, tomato salad, potato omelet, etc.) that we all shared in the most amazing location….a cave/underground cellar! The cellar was so incredibly unique and a one of a kind experience.

We stayed for quite some time enjoying the food and drinking wines straight from the barrel. I’m not sure how long lunch stop was supposed to last but we stayed for a quite a while learning about the history of the area, learning about wine-making, eating and drinking more wine from the barrel! Sadly, we had to leave to head to our next stop.

We were enjoying our time so much but time was starting to get away from us. Inma never rushed us through this experience. She truly wanted to make sure we enjoyed our time and tour and did everything to make it top notch. We then ended up visiting 1 more winery and finished with a guided tour of Laguardia. Inma drove us back to our hotel and provided a vast amount of information for our next day in the area and even made some bookings for us in Haro. In addition, we were going to Madrid later in the week and she provided us with restaurant recommendations and activity options that she enjoyed.

Again as I mentioned at the beginning, I hardly ever take the time to write review but I just wanted to share our amazing experience with Inma. I know we will visit the area again and will 100% book another tour. Anyone going to the area would be crazy to not book a tour with Inma. It will truly be an unforgettable experience!
