A lovely day wine tasting and touring the Rioja region. Elena was very knowledgeable and tailored the tour to our interests, taking us to visit several wineries with a variety of wines. Laguardia was a gorgeous walled town and well worth the visit. The food was also delicious and we loved Villa Lucia.

When booking our tour (for the Logrono region), the Thabuca team was very polite, responded quickly and answered all of our questions. They set up a wonderful tour with some excellent winery choices. Our guide, Elena, was incredible! We had great tours at each location and she even snuck in an extra winery for us. ;) She was so fun,... More

Our guide Elena was both knowledgeable and excellent company. She was intuitive about what we wanted to achieve from the day and acted accordingly. For anyone wanting to brush up on their knowledge of wine making and try some excellent wines, this is not to be missed.

After using Thabuca last year, we booked another 2 day tour at the beginning of October and took my sister in law and her husband. Yet again we weren't disappointed. Meeting Elena again was like meeting an old friend. Her knowledge is second to none and the service provided was excellent. Cant fault it anyway. Looking forward to booking again... More

This was an amazing tour. I would highly recommend this. My wife and I regularly travel to the Napa Vally, Sonoma and Paso Robles, so we have a lot of experience with wine countries. This was one of our best wine experiences.

My wife and I took a group of 5 other couples on a wine trip to the Rioja Alavesa. We spent 3 days there and had it all booked through Thabuca. Gentzane made all the arrangements, transferring us from Bilbao to Laguardia for our stay in the typical Hospederia de los Parajes, with its underground wine tasting areas. We saw... More

We took the 8-hour Wine Deluxe Tour on a gorgeous Saturday in August and toured and tasted at 3 new-style Rioja wineries. Our guide, Gentzane, was friendly, knowledgeable and professional, and she made our day extremely enjoyable. We had one of the best lunches we've had in years at the fantastic La Bodega de Rivas, where their 5-course tasting menu... More
