We booked for the wine and cheese tasting but were upgraded when we got there as we were the only ones booked on. The up grade included Tapas and it couldn’t be faulted. We would definitely go back the travellers nest. The tapas tasting included a lovely walk around some of the streets of Barcelona with Pauline and she certainly made everyone feel comfortable. We had a fab time and she made it extra special for my partners birthday whilst there with a candle in a slice of cake. Well worth a visit and definitely worth the money. My only criticism would be there was not much wine as expected. Sangria and local drinks were nice but would have preferred the wine as stated in booking. We would definitely Recommend this. Thank you Pauline

Our guide Edu was very helpful and nice. He had so much history to share. This is probably the best activity I did in Spain. The place was very beautiful. I really enjoyed tasting local cheese and honey too which were being offered by some residents around the area. The wine tasting went well too and my personal favorite was the white that they have served.

Our tour guide Edu made it great for us. Weather was nice sunny. Nice drive out, onto the mountains & views of the mountains from any side are stunningly beautiful. The basilica n oldest choir n wine tasting at a 964 AD winery - all made it our best day in Barcelona

Amazing from start to finish. Our guides were spectacular most especially Morak (hope I spelled his name right). Thank you for making this trip the highlight of our holiday! Highly recommended together with the wine tasting.

I had a great time on this tour. Our tour guide Jon was very nice.
