This exclusive luxury tour is the perfect choice for discerning travelers wanting an in-depth private tour of Madrid and northern Spain’s cultural highlights and extraordinary food and wine.

Begin in Madrid, the Spanish capital, which has elegant squares, stately Habsburg architecture, leafy boulevards and superb museums. With your expert private guide, explore the highlights of the city. See world-renowned museums such as the Prado, Reina Sofia, CaixaForum and Thyssen-Bornemisza. Tour the majestic Royal Palace. Stroll through exclusive shopping and residential districts. Also visit historic squares and lively markets, including the gourmet San Miguel Market. One evening, enjoy a private tasting tour of some of Madrid’s most beloved tapas bars. Upon request, additional experiences can be arranged such as tickets to soccer games and bullfights, preferred seats at zarzuela performances, cooking lessons, touring with an art expert, visits to house-museums such as Museo Cerralbo or Museo Sorolla, garden tours, shopping excursions, and touring of contemporary art and architecture sites.

Next, explore charming Segovia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to see its ancient Roman aqueduct, Gothic cathedral, atmospheric backstreets and fairy-tale Alcazar castle, which perches on a rocky outcrop. Enjoy time for lunch of local specialties at a top restaurant.

Continue by private transfer to Ribera del Duero for a stay at Abadia Retuerta LeDomaine, one of the best luxury hotels in Spain. During a private tour of the estate, explore the beautiful grounds and excellent winery. Also, visit other wineries and villages in the area, and enjoy the hotel’s beautiful interiors, renowned restaurants and extensive leisure facilities.

En route to San Sebastian, stop in Rioja, one of the world’s most renowned wine regions, and enjoy time for lunch at a top winery. Also see outstanding winery buildings designed by celebrated contemporary architects such as Santiago Calatrava.

Continue to San Sebastian, an elegant seaside resort that’s the gastronomic capital of the Basque Country and home of some of the finest cuisine in the world. With your private guide, tour the picturesque old town and enjoy a private tasting tour to try the city’s best pintxos—the Basque version of tapas—and Txakoli, an effervescent white wine. One day, take a private excursion to Bilbao, a city renowned for contemporary architecture. Visit the most interesting cultural sites old and new, including the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, a stunning building of swooping titanium curves designed by Frank Gehry. Another day, enjoy a private excursion to the Pays Basque in France. Explore the town of Bayonne, the cultural capital of the region, to see half-timber houses and the city walls, visit the cathedral, peruse markets, learn about local culture at the Basque Museum, and sample the town’s famous chocolate and smoked ham.
