[Our guide] has an incredible amount of knowledge about so many things. He is well-versed in so much of what we find interesting…food, wine, travel, current world events. We appreciated his passion and commitment and to guiding, in general. We hope to travel again soon.

Thanks for pushing me a little on our Spain trip. It was the incentive and confidence builder I needed. On return to Napa, I did a climb I'd been avoiding in good form, even beating some of the more regular, confident riders (all of whom were encouraging me on). You encouragement and suggestions broke some barriers I'd built since my accident. We had a great time. The Rioja ride is another high point of our travel. It is really hard to pick a favorite.

We had incredible moments with the fantastic Spanish landscapes, hotels, meals and wines. We would like to thank especially to the guides, who worked hard to ensure exceptional moments during the trip. Even one afternoon, when we had problems with heavy rain, and the support car had a mechanical problem.
