We were a group of 8 guys celebrating a friends 40th Birthday and came to San Sebastian for a long weekend. Our guide took us to La Rioja where we spent the whole day, we visited 3 wineries and went to La Guardia (1000 year old town) for lunch. We asked to visit Marques De Riscal and our guide chose the other wineries and the restaurant. Both of his choices were excellent. Our guide was fantastic, friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable, fully bi-lingual and a lovely person. He picked us up and dropped us of from our accommodation.

Our guide not only introduced us to Rioja, but he entertained us with his stories and knowledge of the region. We were picked up at a convenient location, driven a lovely route to the wine region, shown the beautiful Gehry masterpiece that is the Hotel Marqués de Riscal, and treated to a tour and tasting at the Bodegas Luis Canas. For lunch, our guide made us a reservation at the Restaurante Marixa, which had an incredible view of vineyards and a delicious menu. After a tour of the quaint walled town of Laguardia, our guide drove us back to San Sebastian. If we had more time in San Sebastian, we would have looked at another excursion.
