    The tour was excellent as we were fortunate to have good weather in November and the mountain tops were covered in snow.. The guide was excellent, cheerful and informative .
    The only negative comment was the lunch. The honeyed aubergine and melon were fine but most of the main meal was left by everyone as was the red wine. Main meal comprised of cold fried egg, sliced potato which was hard and semi cold, a sausage that was uncuttable and black pudding.
    This did not spoil our day as the views were spectacular, and the tapas tasting earlier on was excellent

    This was not worth the money we paid. Although we booked English tour the tour guide spent more time explaining in Spanish and very little time in English. One English couple told the tour guide that this rude.

    We were glad we signed up for this outing, rather than rent a car and do the driving ourselves. The guide and driver were thoroughly professional. The itinerary was well-planned and the stops were interesting. The ham and cheese sampling plus the lunch were very enjoyable.

    Went on tour yesterday. It was raining and visibility in the mountains was poor. I am sure the views would have been stunning if we could have seen them. The main problem was the guide. Although she was friendly and helpful she gave huge amounts of information in Spanish and very little in English plus when she did eventually say something in English she spoke so fast it was very difficult to understand her. I don’t know whether the lack of English commentary was because most of other travellers were Spanish speakers. However I was expecting an English commentary as we had specified our required language when booking. The little hill villages were attractive but hopeless to explore in pouring rain. Good weather is essential for this trip!

    This day trip was well-worth taking. I highly recommend it.

    In my opinion the trip was great including the punctuality of the arranged pick up time and well organised. The mini bus was comfortable and the driver was clearly an expert. Not only did he know every curve but also every bump in the road and he adjusted the speed accordingly. Best of all, the guide was very knowledgeable and gave all the information in Spanish and English. I was also very lucky with my travel companions, although this is not something one can choose. The Spanish speaking travellers were making a real effort to speak slowly and clearly to me over lunch in Spanish. So, bearing in mind that a tasting session of the regional 'jamon' and later a very plentiful, nice lunch with wine and water was included in the price, it was good value for money.
