Our guide Lydia was fabulous. She use to be a history teacher so her knowledge of Spain was profound. At the Montserrat, she gave us a tour and then plenty of time to go up to the top of the mountain to hike around (bring good walking shoes). After the montserrat, went to Codorniu cava vineyard. This was a very old vineyard that had a lot of historic tools of the trade and the guide Pepe was hilarious. I would recommend this tour because the cava after the beautiful montserrat made a nice ending to a fabulous day.
it was honestly the most unique wine tour that I have ever taken, and I have been on wine tours all over the world. The tour meeting place for the tour is in between the atocha and achocha refe metro at la gloria cafe. The wine making process uses giant teracotta pots to ferment the wine! The "modern" version is a cement shape version where there is no door to empty the sediment. Its a must see for any wine enthusiast. The wines served were mostly of grapes unique grapes to spain, like a 100% tempornilla. At 2 of the vineyards, we actually got to try some of the wine straight from the barrel with the winemaker. The guide for the tour was wonderful as well. He translated for the wine makers and pointed out interesting sights along the way.. The tour was well worth the price and I highly recommend it.
Both cities are very beautiful and interesting. The tour guide was excellent, she would speak in english and then send us to the next thing to look at while she then repeated what she said in spanish (she always had each group going to something so that no one felt like they were waiting for their translation). She pointed out banos, photo ops, and gave us time to take pictures. I would recommend this tour. Please note, that you actually have to present your voucher to the people in the Julie's travel office to get your ticket for the tour
