Barcelona- Rioja+ San Sebastian

"Ramon we just checked into the Alma Barcelona and all I can say is WOW.  The sleek interior, the warm welcoming staff, the comfrey lounge chairs we sat in for registration, the glass of Cava we each received and not to mention the finger print room key, it hard to say what we enjoyed the most.  We only checked in 1/2 hour ago so I'm sure there are many other surprises to continue to Wow us.  Thanks  you so much for sourcing out the best experiences for our trips. James said it in the range and to say hello to Maria."

"Hi Ramon, I wanted to say thank you for organising a fabulous trip in Rioja.  The itinerary was excellent and gave us a really good understanding of the area and its wines.  The selection of vineyards visited gave us a chance to see the different approaches (both traditional and modern) to wine making.  The hotels and restaurants were of a very high standard and our guide Inma was an excellent choice. We had a wonderful trip and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would happily recommend you and your company to anyone thinking of visiting Spain."

"Hi Ramon, we made it back to Arizona safe and sound last night. We wanted to sincerely thank you for a truly fantastic and memorable tour of Spain. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and simply loved everything that you planned for us. It was really great to meet you. We hope that someday in the future our paths will cross again. We enjoyed getting to spend time with you and talk to you. We wish you the best of luck. Best regards from Arizona!"


"Hello Ramon, I feel badly about writing this email but these guests have decided to postpone their trip to Spain. You have been wonderful to work with and as soon as they plan to travel or if I have any other guests who intend to travel to Spain I will get in contact with you immediately. I always feel badly when this happens could I do understand the amount of time and effort we all put into planning trips that do not come to fruition. It's been great to meet you and I'm looking forward to working together again!"

"Hi Ramon, unfortunately the clients have decided on their own arraignments.  I am sorry about this and appreciate the work you did with quoting & itinerary. I hope to work with you in the future ( and have the booking confirm!) as I appreciate the timely response and fair pricing you offered, as well as the great accolades that my co-workers offer about you."


"Hi Ramon, we had an incredible custom trip which incorporated all our individual and group needs by Ramon and unique traveler I would highly recommend Ramon and his company to anyone going to Spain on vacation. The combination of special wine tastings, incredible restaurants and meals. Tapa tours and cooking classes along with the diversity of old and new hotels made the entire experience a beautiful lifetime memory. Ramon and Annabelle have fun and engaging personalities and they made the trip that much better. It was worth every cost and I will use their services again."


"Hi Ramon, it was a pleasure for us to have you show us around ‘your’ Rioja and something we both enjoyed greatly. We arrived back in Melbourne this morning at 5:00 am, 28 hours after we left Bilbao on Monday. We were fortunate to get an upgrade to First Class with Emirates on the leg from Madrid to Dubai but still it is not easy and we have both been very subdued today. Both Arzak and Elkane were superb and Juan Mari in particular was very generous to us – we have a photo with the three of us - as was Alphonse in helping with the choice of menu. Arzak was special and the table at Elkane was the choice in the restaurant and I’m sure it showed some of your influence. The transfer from San Sebastian was smooth and the driver a lovely gentleman. So all up a great trip and one we will remember. We expect to see you again, maybe even in this part of the world and will always quote you to friends."

"Hi Marcelle, honestly I wouldn't miss the festival. It was fabulous. This was our second trip to Rioja. We were also there four years ago in July for the battle of the wines which is also a spectacular event. There certainly are crowds at the festival but our group included an 83-year-old woman who came with her son. She had the time of her life and didn't have any problem with the crowds. We did not go to the Basque country on this trip but we been there previously. San Sebastián is awesome. Ramon does a great job so I have no reservations about recommending him. If you want to talk further don't hesitate to call me on my cell phone 2106015333."
