The wonderful group and that it felt like leaving family at the end. Great walks and wine tastings.

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

The tour leader was extremely knowledgeable and fun. Also very caring as I had a health issue that she had to deal with.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Enjoy!

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

My comment would be that wine tastings should be later in the day. It is not so easy to do a walk after wine tasting or lunch where you have consumed more wine. The time at the wine museum could do with being shorter but others enjoyed it.

Sitting in the tasting room at the Ontañon winery with 3 lovely wines in front of me and a couple of bites to eat following a lovely riverside walk in the beautiful sunshine with storks flying overhead. Perfect.

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

He was very good. He gave us a lot of really good information, was very attentive to everyone and has a great sense of humour. He contributed to making the holiday very enjoyable.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Leave room in your case to take a couple of bottles home ;)

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

I really enjoyed the balance on this tour - a bit of walking, combined with museum visits, general sightseeing stuff and of course drinking lots of wines and eating lots of tapas. I would like to see more tours of this format. My knees can't manage a lot of walking so a full on walking tour is out sadly but I do enjoy a bit of walking on holiday to balance out the overindulgence elsewhere :)

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

This trip more than lived up to its name. The tapas evenings in Bilbao and Logrono walking through the cultural heritage were a delight to all the senses.The wines of La Rioja and Catalonia drunk in the warm spring sunshine and our walking through stunning scenery around Mont Blanc and Montserrat are experiences to be enjoyed over and over.

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Eaida our guide and the very spirit of Catalonia was knowledgble, organised and completely focussed on ensuring that our small group derived the very best experience of this magical part of Spain. We could not have wished for a better travelling companion.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Expect the unexpected and relax. The walking is fine and spring is good for the Camino or the many delights of Barcelona. Travel light and enjoy.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

In eight days I shot over 1200 images. The scenery, heritage, flora, fauna and the hectic life of Barcelona are an inexhaustible source of interest and surprise.

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

It has to be the several walks we did through beautiful countryside to end up in a vineyard and a wine tasting. The wide variety of country - from Bilbao to Rioja to Aragorn to Catalonia and the wide variety of wines including Riojas and Cavas made it very memorable. It was the variety that was memorable as well as the experience and made you appreciate how the different regions of Spain are so different from each other.

Tour Leader Name

Zaida

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Zaida was a wonderful guide, knowledgeable and enthusiastic for her region and introduced us to some great places to visit, eat and drink in. She was thoughtful and helpful and made sure everyone had a good experience, slowing down if the walking got tough, but also rather than just drop us in the various spots she came with us to the various tapas bars and cathedrals etc we visited. Much recommended.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Be prepared for all weathers, it rained in Bilbao and was very hot in Barcelona and all things in-between. Best if you can enjoy the different wines and foods and relax into the spanish style. Nothing strenuous as far as walking was concerned, some inevitably long coach rides.

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

From day 1 we were informed that the wine came first (before the walks)in the title of the tour. I counted that we tasted 24 wines (officially). I live in Spain and was fascinated by the way wine production is taken so seriously from the small vineyard to the huge cava producers (there were 100 million bottles in the cellar). Also learnt loads about the cultures in the different areas we visited.

Tour leader was very knowledgable about all aspects of the tour and made the tour really good fun.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Don't be put off by the walking part - there is always a plan B (B for bar!). If you've never been to Northern Spain would highly recommend you try it as it is very different from the rest of Spain. Very green - so check the weather forecast before you go and then ignore it and take clothes for all seasons!
