Wine yards were amazing. The toir guide , awesome! The linch was Horrible ! Unexpectedly and unacceptably bad! Suggest to change it to some other one.

Hello, I am sorry that the lunch you had was not the best. However, as you have pointed out, the wineries were amazing, and as this is a wine tour, then I hope you enjoyed the main part of the day. We will look at where you ate, but it would have been really helpful if you could have told us a bit more about why you didn't like the restaurant. Regards, Robert

A Day Trip Worth Taking

The tour was outstanding: the sights, the food, the wine and learning about the history and culture of Catalunya from a wonderful guide, Jordy. Getting out of the city and eating at authentic restaurants was a great opportunity. Jordy gave us wonderful perspective on the food, the culture, the wine, the history, sports, etc. It was definitely the best tour I have taken.

We had an excellent say with our tour guide, learning about the culture and sights of Barcelona. We enjoyed breakfast, which was kind of a DIY experience, but it was one that we can take back home. Lunch was also really good and the service was excellent. The smells were amazing. The winery tour was very informative and just all around great. We had a great time and would definitely go on another tour!

Tour guide, Isi, showed my daughter and I, along with a couple from Texas, a fabulous day!!! He was informative and fun! The day included traditional Spanish food with wine in some locations we would not have found on our own. The lunch spot was particularly extra special, full of locals enjoying a beautiful afternoon in the mountains. We visited the monastery in the hillside of Monsterat which was, in my opinion, an architectural wonder with stunning views of the area!!! Highly recommend!!!

The highlight of our time in Spain...

The highlight of our time in Spain. Originally booked at the beginning of our trip, we had to move our tour to the end of our time in Spain. Our tour guide was Joseph, whose infectious enthusiasm for Barcelona and Spain, really made the experience for us. The tour begins with breakfast in a small mountain town w/ a breathtaking view of Montserrat. Pro tip - they make their own gin and honey! Buy some and you won't regret it! One of my favorite stops was at Vinya Nova for lunch and olive oil tasting. My biggest regret from my trip was not purchasing olive oil from this restaurant! The depth of flavor and golden almost buttery quality was unmatched in other olive oils I had tasted previously. I am still trying to convince people to go to Barcelona, take this tour.. and snatch me a couple of bottles! The tour is definitely a full day event, but one of the highlights of our total European adventure.

We reserved and paid for a van for our tour but were forced to take a car. There were 4 large adults and traveling in the car was very uncomfortable. We complained about the vehicle before we departed but were told we had to take the car, instead of a van, or lose our money. What would have probably been a very enjoyable tour turned out to be a total disappointment. I recommend against taking this tour or using this tour company as customer service is not their strong point.

I was fortunate enough to Josep as my tour guide and we got a private tour for two in a jaguar. Josep was an amazing tour guide who provided history and laughter. This was one of my favorite tours while we stayed in Barcelona. We had second breakfast at the cutest restaurant and the cuisine was fantastic. The visit to Monserrat was such a breathtaking experience and a spiritual one as well. The lunch prior to the winery visit was a culinary experience that we will never forget. I am still thinking about the codfish salad, paellla, coconut flan and of course the wine.The winery was also a treat because the wine was delicious and there was shipping available back to the US. I would say if you are lucky enough to have a tour with Josep, please make sure you do! If I could give him additional stars, I would.

We had a great day and our guide took us all the way up to Montserrat. Spectacular views! She was very helpful and told a lot of facts. We visited a bio/organic winery but didn't like their wine. Highlight was the lunch at the olive farm which was outstanding and best meal while in Barcelona.

We had a truly memorable day hosted by Joseph. First a lovely second breakfast on the way to Montserrat, where we had just the right amount of time to see the sights. The countryside we travelled through was pretty, and lunch in the foothills of Montserrat at Vinya Nova was exceptional. The final stop was a winery tour and tasting at Pares Balta which was interesting, but a little long on a hot day. For food and wine travellers this is a must do.

The best part of this was that, since there were only 4 people one couple, myself and the tour guide, it was very versatile. We had a fabulous breakfast, some really great chatting along the road, thought about doing a short detour to Montserrat, but turned back once we saw the car traffic, had an amazing lunch come really, really hungry and ended the day with some absolutely amazing wines! 5/5 would absolutely recommend!

Fantastic day out with an engaging, knowledgeable guide. We especially enjoyed eating in authentic local establishments and feeling off the beaten track food was excellent, as was the scenery and the wine tasting!! all six of us agreed it was a highlight of our Barcelona trip and gave us a different perspective than just sitting in the city. Well worth the day out!

We had a wonderful starting with a traditional breakfast of meats, cheese, country bread, tomato and of course wine. We then took a scenic tour including picking a few local wild berries along the way. The guide was fantastic, the food was fantastic and the scenery was beautiful. We love going to Barcelona and have been many times so it was wonderful to take a leisurely drive into the country and see how the locals live daily lives.

This was a super fun trip! A group of us went together and had a wonderful day filled with wine from the porron! Thought this was supposed to include a stop for olive oil tasting and also a sampling of local meats/nuts/honey which didn't exactly happen but we did get a big lunch that wasn't expected
