Salut! What a wonderful tour of the magnificent Rioja region. Our guide Aitor is so knowledgable about the region, its history and the delicious wines. He was most helpful in customizing the tour to meet our needs and his contacts in the area provided us with first class service. I highly recommend this tour.

Best guide we have ever had! 1) Friendly and effusive, and it is GENUINE. His enthusiasm was infectious. 2) He pays attention to the minute details. Everything was well-planned. 3) His knowledge of the history and wines of the Rioja region was phenomenal. 4) My primary interest was in tasting wines and studying the varieties of grapes of the region. My sister's was interest in the castles and tunnels. My wife wanted to view a hotel that was closed to the public. Aitor got her in.

Aitor was a TERRIFIC guide for our Aroja wine tour! He focused on the areas that interested us most and made the day a truly memorable one for all. We couldn't have asked for better fit. Thank you!

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.

I booked Aitor for a tour of the Riojo wine region with some private tastings. We were a party of 4 adults and planned to be in Bilbao for several days. I wanted a local guide with a vehicle and a custom tour. I discussed the general plan with Aitor in advance and he did the rest. We had a marvelous time. He took us to some small boutique wineries where we tasted some fabulous Riojo wines. I would book Aitor again for another tour in a heart beat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much David! It was a true pleasure meeting you all and I was proud to introduce some of my friends making wine in Rioja! Thanks for the help you have offered to them as well!

Aitor provided us with a wide-ranging tour and perspective on the Rioja. We had the opportunity to visit sites we would have driven right past and to visit a few wineries that we might have missed. We chose the right guide for our visit!
