Vi ble møtt av Jorge ved statuen av Cæsar Augustus, som fra start virket veldig hyggelig. Der tok han oss gjennom historien til Zaragoza, før selve matturen begynte. Jorge tok oss gjennom matmarkedet i byen, før første stoppested var Montal. Der fikk vi servert en spesialitet med aubergine og ost. Veldig godt. Videre fikk vi prøvd oss på sjampinjong, borraja, ansjos med sjokolade før vi avsluttet med guirlache. Alt veldig godt, og Jorge styrte oss gjennom opplevelsen på en særdeles god måte, som gjorde hele opplevelsen strålende. Ved avslutningen overlot Jorge oss med noen tips til både vin, mat og drikke på en spennende cocktailrestaurant. Alt i alt en strålende opplevelse. Anbefales!

Our guide Iñaki helped us learn about the history of Pamplona and Navarra, as well as the idiosyncrasy of the Pamplonic people. He taught us how to live the San Fermines festival seen from the perspective of a runner of the running of the bulls. He also oriented us on the gastronomic and restaurant issue. Very instructive and educational, fun and entertaining. Recommended 100 per 100.

Jorge was our guide around Zaragoza and very informative, personable and entertaining. We visited five establishments and enjoyed some fantastic tapas with some excellent wines from the region and further afield. Excellent overall and would highly recommend it. With hindsight I wish we had done in on the first night in Zaragoza rather than the third.

So much fun, such interesting sites included in the game, such a good way to get the historic knowledge of Zaragoza. Totally worth the experience!

Our guide was friendly, informative, lively, and accommodating. We've had several guides in various cities and Reyes counts as one of the best.
