Adventure in Bilbao & La Rioja in March 2020.

27th March—01st April, 2020

You are aware that we always try and chose good quality hotels, normally 4 star in a convenient situation to be able walk easily to evening attractions such as tapas bars and restaurants etc. This time the hotels could not be better situated although a little pricier Look them up on Google!! In Logrono we have a convenient 3 star hotel as an alternative Hotel-ciudaddelogrono.com but it would only reduce the overall price by 30 euros per person Is it worth it for the reduced quality? We would like to receive your notices of interest and/or comments as soon as possible in order to be able to firm up contracts with the various suppliers. Many thanks
