It is quite cheap and very informative. I came away from the experience far more educated about wine and Laguardia. You even get to taste some wine!

Highly recommendable if you wish to learn a little about the history of wine making in relation to Laguardia and Rioja region. The English speaking guide was excellent; most positive and knowledgeable.

If you want to see the underground of Laguardia, come visit El Fabulista. The tour starts upstairs and finishes in the underground with a wine tasting. Worth the tour to see what the city Grotas look like.

César loves his trade, and it shows! The tour is really worth the visit. You learn a lot about history, about wine-making... and you even get an accelerated wine-tasting mini course! A unique cellar which has been proudly preserved by the Samaniego family for generations.

What a fantastic tour! The winery is so beautiful and historic, and the wines are top notch while also very affordable. Our guide Mar was extremely knowledgeable but made the tour fun by telling delightful stories. Highly recommended.
