What people are saying about Castile-La Mancha

The guide was very personable and professional. She had a rich knowledge of history, local tradition, and cultural awareness. The tour kept to a full schedule which included free time and a wonderful wine tasting. The wine tasting was well done and the tapas complimented the varietals offered. The Tempranillo and Syrah-Tempranillo were excellent! Very good trip and great value!

This was an amazing trip. The Guide was friendly and so informative. He gave us 2 hours to visit Toledo on our own and for lunch, and was very grateful. For me, the best part was the winery, the landscapes were so beautiful and the wines… the best wine I never tasted, I am not exaggerating, really it was. I truly recommend this tour to my friends.

Majet on the tour and Lorenzo at the winery are the best hosts. Without a doubt, an unforgettable experience to live in the City of Toledo. Without detracting from the wine tasting

Interesting experience at the winnery in Aranjuez, fine red wine. Toledo, a picturesque historical town, with an amazing cathedral.
