Excellent wine and cava, nice transport, great guide Paul.

Having done wine tours in Italy/Tuscany, Napa and Sonoma we found this one different. We liked every bottle we tasted. Even though I am not a big champagne or Cava drinker it was outstanding. The vineyard was a perfect picture of the past that has been changed with technology and the 3rd generation studying winemaking in university. The guide was excellent.. Paul. I have to be honest, we had some vineyards in Italy/Tuscany that we couldn't really even enjoy the wine. In Sonoma and Napa it was mixed. I was very impressed with Spanish wine both red and Cava. Delicious and very reasonably priced.

Interesting and well planned

Alex our guide was excellent informative , loved the Barcelona history talk on bus . The first cava winery was lovely and the staff very enthusiastic and helpful . Bit disappointed that cave was concrete! The second wine yard was beautiful and great views . Wine tasting with hints very useful and good . The coach comfy and arrangements excellent and loved the helpful messages before most. reassuring . Would recommend this tour but would have preferred a smaller group although only 15 people .

excellent guide,beautiful locations, very good wines!

My mother and I enjoyed this day trip very much. The guide Clara made it very interesting, explaining the history of Catalunya and the process of making cava and wine. We liked the wineries a lot, they are small family busineses and not macro companies. I highly recommend this day trips, even to people living in Barcelona like myself.
