Great day for exploring Spain's wine country!

This was a really fun tour. We had a wonderful guide who gave us good information and made it very enjoyable. The wine tour they provided of a small boutique winery was exceptional. We also loved having some time on our own to explore these two marvelous towns and enjoy a very delicious lunch. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get a general feel for the area in a one day span. It made us all want to return to the region and explore more.
