Testimonials: "Iker organized and guided us through a great day in La Rioja. He is a passionate, charming knowledgable, and considerate guide that I will hire again when we visit this lovely region. We visited two wineries – one older, historic family-owned winery, and a new, modern winery. Lunch was at a small restaurant, featuring delicious, homemade traditional food, including wine made by the owners. We also had a nice walking tour of LaGuardia.
