Testimonials

Chateau Travel ..... whenever I read about or hear those two words, I am reminded of great moments, beautiful scenery, wonderful people and of course the best food and wine sensory experience imaginable. We have been fortunate enough to enjoy Chateau Travel’s charm five times: Bordeaux, Burgundy, Tuscany and northern Spain, the latter on 2 occasions. It's a real challenge to summarize our unique experience on each of these trips, so as not to abuse your precious time and to get to the purpose of my letter, I can split these experiences into 3 main sections: organization and logistics, travel companions, and the eno-gastronomical experience.

Organization and logistics: Mayra and Sergio were wonderful hosts on each of these adventures. Being organized and orderly without being rigid, warmth and friendliness, are some of their main attributes. The whole trip is organized with astonishing fluidity, where they take care of the smallest details, from luggage tags to organizing a magical hot-air balloon experience over the landscapes of La Rioja and Cava. It felt like our balloon baskets rested on a carpet of clouds amid a crisp, clear blue sky. That really was one of the best feelings we have ever experienced in our lives! The city tours featuring with highly qualified guides, helping us understand the history and monuments of each of the cities we visited. As for the hotels, we can only say that all accommodations are first class, both in infrastructure and in staff. Mayra and Sergio have established ties of true friendship in most hotels we visited, allowing us to enjoy five-star attention wherever we arrived. In particular, we have always said that both attention and luxury goes "in crescendo" along each route. Their choice of ground transportation deserves to be mentioned as well. All buses were fully equipped and brought us to each and every one of our destinations, without delays. We were chauffeured by educated and responsible drivers, allowing us to … read more

Traveling with Chateau Travel was a wonderful experience for us and also proved to be a pleasant surprise. Due to the circumstances of our country in recent times, as travelers, we were really surprised to feel as safe and well-taken care of as in first world countries. The added value of care Mayra and Sergio give in their "travel experience" is really extraordinary and worthy of witnessing for yourself. Not to mention our fellow travelers, today they are much more than "pals". We have had two wonderful trips, and we feel a third is needed...We hope to travel soon!

Chateau Travel is traveling at its best!!

My husband and I taken three eno-gastronomic tours prepared by Chateau Travel, and we can say they are the best.

Mayra and Sergio have led us to the best hotels, the best restaurants and the most exclusive wineries throughout the world’s most important wine regions. They really make sure that everything is perfect, from the menu to each guests complete comfort.
In the cellars, we had the privilege of meeting the owners and many of them honored us with their presence and dined with us.

In restaurants, most with more than one Michelin star, we were given a tour of the kitchen and are able to meet some of the world’s most famous chefs in the world, and all this without having to lift a finger!

The groups are always small, so you really get to know the other couples and create friendships that last for years.

And dealing with Mayra and Sergio ...is simply spectacular! They take care of all the necessary details before, during and after the trip.

The memories of our trips with them are the best, we have done three, and we want to do more!

Simply highly recommended!

Dear Sergio and Mayra,

It would bring me great pleasure to write our testimony, now that I have relocated and have more time in my new location with a new challenge, and a new life. To start off, since we met and traveled with your groups, our lives have changed in every sense, although still learning and improving. I dare say I am thankful for whoever planted that little seed in us to look for something new, and to have the courage to emigrate. It was thanks to what we experienced during our trips with you two, both in travels and in encounters with others, that we were able to do it.

In short, good old Chateau Travel has changed our outlook on life, and the best gift it has given us was to have met Mayra and Sergio.

My husband Felix, like others, had heard the interview of Sergio on the radio, and on reaching the house, I said that could be a different and exciting journey, considering both of us appreciate good wine and wanted to learn more about whole process.

After thinking about it for a couple of days, we got in touch and decided to participate, even though we had some hesitations considering previous experiences we’ve had, both positive and negative.

We had wonderful days; the hosts became special friends, our travel companions were polite and cheerful, the excursions, visits, meals, and lodging were all insurmountable.

We were delighted with the experience and at home, with family and friends, we still promote this fabulous trip.
It has been many years, but I still maintain a friendship with many people from that trip and I am constantly thankful to those dear friends who made those moments of enjoyment and learning possible. They were unique from every point of view.

The selection of the sites Chateau Travel Services programs to visit (vineyards, wineries, restaurants, hotels, etc.) are of extraordinary quality and the planning is well-organized.

Traveling with Sergio and Mayra is a privilege to enjoy.

When contacting Mayra and Sergio Esteva in 2008 through the newly formed Club del Vino Valencia, I did not imagine the surprises that would await us. They were promoting a trip to Burgundy and Champagne, and my husband and I got 2 couples to go on the trip with us. Even on the pre-trip the Estevas made the fun begin. They put everyone at ease, as if we had known each other for a lifetime. Needless to say the trip was a success, the hotels and selected restaurants, as well as the wonderful visits to different vineyards and large wineries made us want to repeat the experience as soon as possible.

So a year later, we took the tour called ‘Grand Prix & Wines” that combined the experience of attending the F1 race in Spain and visits to 3 vineyards in the Penedes. It was a refreshing trip, with all the warmth and charm of Catalonia. For this trip, one of the friends and couples repeated the experience and 2 more couples joined us, leaving everyone happy.

Chateau Travel had become the talk of the town. Both with the initial friends and the other couples who took the tour of the vineyards to Chile, and yet again travelling with the Estevas was a wise choice that gave us some unforgettable days in the South.
Why repeat the experience? Because during the journey you feel pampered, you do not have to make any decisions, you let go, you're in a magic bubble, lovingly protected by the Estevas !!!

Our fourth trip was the Western Circuit in France and although I thought it would take a lot to impress me, the region of Bordeaux, Sarlat, Saint Emilion, left the palate and the eyes filled with beautiful scenery and wonderful wines.

Sergio and Mayra are great at uniting the group, keeping the energy and conversations flowing. You keep laughing from the moment the luxurious minibus picks you up every morning until you go back to the hotel. Gastronomy, enology, history, tourism, everything is present.

Would we return to travel with Chateau Travel? Definitely, … read more

In my opinion, taking a trip with Sergio and Mayra was wonderful. Two of my girlfriends and I decided to go on the trip to Tuscany, knowing that normally people travel in couples. A few days before departure, I asked them if they had realized that the trip was to taste wines and food (although we are not drinkers and we take great care of our weight). Well I'll tell you, it was spectacular! Sergio and Mayra’s planning and organization was perfect. Each hotel was better, each vineyard more interesting, each restaurant more exceptional than the last.

Our hosts Sergio and Mayra always made sure everything was as we had thought, and moreover, if we thought of something different, they did not hesitate to accommodate us, whenever possible.

In short, traveling with them means not worrying about anything because everything has already been thought of.

Thanks for being just as you are.

“To celebrate our father’s 80th birthday we wanted to be sure he had the trip of his life. Places, wine, food and fun. Our friends from Chateau Travel Services made it possible.

The wines and places were out of our mind, Chateau Mouton Rosthchild, Chateau Palmer, Chateau Margaux, Chateau Pontet Canet, Chateau D’Yquem, the great champagne houses and so many more. The wine tastings and brief appreciation courses directed by the most famous wine masters during some of the visits, were also unique. Impossible to forget the marvelous dinners at the top restaurants (Michelin start rewarded) but more to remember are the lunches in the private dining rooms of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin, Chateau Palmer as well as the farewell lunch at the house of Louis Roederer’s president and owner. The charm hotels where we stayed were all superb and full of history ….. Also to remember the visit to Perigord, a beautiful region with its rural farms and its very special foie gras, an experience not to be missed.
And, last but not least the companionship of Mayra and Sergio who made sure all the details were always perfect, but more than that their friendship and permanent good humor really made this two weeks the trip of our life.”
