Characteristics of this Rioja wine tour

DESCRIPTION

Away from the crowds

This tour is a definite for photography lovers and those who value a more authentic and less touristy experience.

Indulge into an off-the-beaten-path journey in Rioja away from the crowds. There is a fantastic range of history to explore in this scenic region to give up you a real atmosphere of another time. We will combine food and sightseeing: we will go to 2 wineries and spend time exploring off-the-beaten track villages perched up in the hills, beautifully-preserved medieval towns and fantastic landscapes.

Where guidebooks can’t reach

We believe the hidden corners of this region are where the authentic feel of La Rioja is retained.

There are unassuming villages, humble places that feel untouched and authentic. We will show you the parts the guidebooks can’t reach on the condition that you help preserve their identity and don’t spread the word!

Other visitors’ opinion on the Rioja Uncovered tour

We took a day tour with Imma, and it was one of the best private tours I’ve done in a wine region, and I do a lot of them globally!
Imma’s local wine knowledge was really impressive, having worked in the industry and area for some time. She took us to wineries at are not on the map, and the location for lunch in a private dining room under a church overlooking the valley was something so unique and local. Very impressive, and her cooking was delicious too!
On the one day we were there, there was the yearly wine festival of open cellars in a village, Imma was flexible with the tour itinerary and we spent a few hours at the festival in the family cellars of many local winemakers. You just don’t get that experience anywhere!! It was so rustic, real, local and the wines were very good for local family winemakers. I even tried drinking from the Perron!! You must do this in Logrono!!
This is a new business for Imma, and I was very lucky for that, as I know once word gets out, that I would not be able to book a day tour with her on such short notice; the day before!!
If I could rate this 6 stars, I would.
If you are after a personal tour experience with flexibility and local knowledge, this is for you.

Despite the price feeling high for Spain, this was the best thing my wife and I did during our two week vacation in Spain. It was definitely worth the price and would not hesitate doing it again. Inma, our host, driver, history teacher, and friend, is fantastic. She works as a translator as well, so her English was impeccable. It was actually quite nice talking English with someone all day. This was about a 12 hour day with Inma. We were traveling with one other couple from the UK. I thought four people was the perfect size, as it was great getting to know the other couple too. Being such a small size, the tour was very private and intimate. Inma felt more like an old friend showing us her favorite spots. We visited multiple wineries, tried a good deal of wine, and also stopped at some historical places too. Within 30 minutes of the start of our day with Inma, I turned to my wife and said this was well worth it. If you are in doubt, do it. You won’t be disappointed.
