About The Vitoria & Rioja Wine Region Day Tour:

After departing the Carlton Hotel at 08:40 you'll drive directly south down the motorway towards Vitoria. This scenic route will take you through the mountainous landscape of the Gorbeia Natural Park, with its lush forests of oak and beech. Upon arriving in Vitoria your guide will treat you to a walking tour of the city's new and old town quarters.

Next the tour continues through various towns and villages of Álava, the last of which is Labastida, site of the nearby ruined Monastery of Santa María de Toloño.

Eventually you'll arrive in Laguardia, a charming historic village with splendid wineries that serves as the capital of the Rioja Alavesa comarca. During your visit your guide will show you the medieval streets, stately townhouses and two fortified churches. There will also be free time for lunch in one of the town's traditional restaurants (own cost). Your guide will provide recommendations on where to dine if you aren't familiar with local gastronomy.
