After hotel pickup, say goodbye to the coast for the day and you’ll wind your way through the mountains of the Basque Country until you’re met by the sunny hills of La Rioja, carpeted with endless rows of grape vines. You’ll be taken to a very special, four generation, family run Bodega where they’ll show you the whole wine making process. Then hit the relax button, it’s the tasting and tapas session on the patio overlooking the valley. For lunch you’ll feast on a traditional 3 course meal accompanied by the regions finest, with the perfect dream setting right inside the winery. Off down through the vines we’ll stop off at a famed bodega and prepare to be wowed. Next it’s over to the eleventh century town of Laguardia to amble through the sun drenched cobbled streets visiting the hidden cellar caves full to the brim of the regions finest.

I am a British girl who has been based in the Basque country for the last 11 years after I completely fell in love with the place and the culture. I have a great perspective of exactly what being a tourist in the Basque country means and how to make your San Sebastian tours as individual, memorable and as special as possible. I absolutely love San Sebastián and having lived here a long time, I found that a lot of the tours and experiences were the middle of the road, regular activities. We take people off the beaten track, it’s all about trying something and stepping out of your comfort zone. And that's exactly what we allow people to do.

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.
