Description

Uncover the charm of the Basque Country with a visit to the region's capital, Vitoria-Gasteiz. Explore the city's landscapes and culture on this guided tour – complete with a wine-tasting experience at a wine cellar in Laguardia, renowned for its Rioja red wine.

Begin your day with a scenic drive, heading southwards to Vitoria-Gasteiz in the heart of Spain's autonomous Basque Country. Surrounded by an enviable green belt, Europe's Green Capital 2012 combines the charm of picturesque buildings and charming architecture with nature and an abundance of lush landscapes.

Hop off your coach at the city's old town and meander through the collection of narrow streets named after old trades that surround the cathedral. Walk past former noblemen's houses decorated with coats of arms and see the Gothic façade of the church of San Pedro.

Continue your tour to Laguardia, a medieval village that has remained intact and retains its historic walls from the thirteenth century, including its 4 entrance gates. Much of the settlement is underlain with tunnels, making it an ideal place to ferment wine and the village has become a renowned Rioja wine region.

Visit a traditional wine cellar, where you can sample some of Spain's finest red wines and access the underground passages. Take time to explore at your own leisure or stop for lunch at the many local restaurants before returning to Bilbao.

An excellent trip through Basque Country and capital city of Vitoria. The wine visit at La Guardia was very informative and the wine tasting of Rioja varieties most enjoyable. Stephane was a great guide.

The Basque Country has a lot to offer and this tour afforded great experiences. Stephane is an expert tour guide, and everyone on the tour had lots of fun with him. I highly recommend him and the tour.

Great tour excellent guide beautiful countryside and we enjoyed Vittoria. Not so impressed by cleanliness of wine vault - will not buy that wine. History and tradition is OK but take us to a more modern facility to taste the wine. All in all a great day.
