In Ribera del duero, you can hardly find tour providing English service, and it is what you're looking for. This travel is amazing. The guide named Lisa or Elisa(?) Living near the winery is so kind and knows everything you can question about. And she got a talent in English. Even people who aren't good at English like me can understand it very easily. If you don't know well about wine, then you'll get a different sight after this tour. Totally recommended.

Excellent performance all round. Well done Jaime. Recommended.
