A Recent Review of this tour

Loved Aitor (I tour). We decided to go to the wine region above San Sebastian to see Roja Wine. It was pouring rain when we left, Aitor made the drive pleasant. When we arrived at our first wineries the rain stopped and we had a great time trying wine, meeting people in the wineries (who all knew Aitor). We stopped for lunch in La Guardia (in the caves) where we had local food and wine. We saw a few other sites ending at Bodegas Marques de Riscal (Frank Gehry winery/hotel). Amazing. Highly recommend.
