Visited May 22, 2013...this was a great tour. The wine cellars were amazing and learned a lot from our guide about the Cava making process plus got to enjoy tasting the Cava...very nice...loved the sweeter version of cava. Wish we had more time to spend in the town of Sitges...it was fascinating full of history. The beaches were beautiful and very inviting...wanted to stay for a few days longer in this charming town. Highly recommend this tour.
We had an excellent day and the Freixenet tour was very nice and interesting. The guide was very nice and had a lot of knowledge. Sitges is a beautiful little town next to the sea and the 2 hours there felt a bit short. There is the option to stay and take the train back to Barcelona instead...
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour to the wine cellars and Sitges- the guide was really good and informative. The bus was very comfortable.
trip to Cava wine cellars was eye opening! Sitges trip show another side of Barcelona! Simply love the breeze, the sun and the sea!
Trip to Freixenet and Sitges was definitely a highlight during my trip to Barcelona. I arrived at the travel office about 10 minutes before the stated departure and while the office was very busy, I was able to check-in quickly. I would recommend though to definitely print and take your travel voucher with you; when I arrived they had no record of my reservation even though I booked over a week in advance. I presented my voucher and in no time had my tickets for the tour.
There were approximately 30 people on the tour and the bus ride from Barcelona was a pleasant 30 min drive. The Freixenet Winery and wine cellars were amazing and the tour host was great. I would definitely recommend this visit for anyone interested in Cava and Spanish wines.
The trip to Sitges was also a pleasant bus ride and the guide provided very interesting facts about Sitges and history of Catalonia that made the ride that much more enjoyable. Sitges is a beautiful, historic seaside resort town about 30 miles south of Barcelona with beautiful Mediterranean beaches and views.
You're only given about 2 hours in Sitges for lunch and shopping before having to get back on the bus, which is not nearly enough time. You do have the option to stay longer and return by train on your own, which is what I did, and is only a 30 min ride back to central Barcelona. Do take advantage of this option. I stayed about 6 hours enjoying lunch, walking the beautiful beaches, and exploring the town. Bring a swimsuit if you plan to stay and enjoy the beach! The visit to Sitges alone is worth the trip!
I highly recommend this tour!
We really enjoyed the trip to the wine cellers. It was interesting and very informative.
We loved this excursion and enjoyed every moment of our day. The Freixenet Cava Wine Cellars are well worth the visit and Sitges is one of the most beautiful places we've seen in Spain.
It is unfortunate that we didn't have more time in Sitges...perhaps a separate excursion for this location would be a great idea.
Lovely day. Would have liked some more time in Sitges. We were given the opportunity to catch the train back but we weren't prepared as we didn't know before the tour.

This trip began in Barcelona, the travel office was easy to find. The bus was lovely, nice big windows and comfy seats. The bus tour person was very nice, spoke several languages. The tour of the city on the way to the winery was very informative, the trip to the winery was wonderful. The tour guide at the winery, Geordi, was wonderful. So much information, the place is beautiful, and the tasting at the end was great. We bought 2 bottle to drink later in the week. The second stop was the beach at Stiges, which was beautiful. I would recommend this trip to any traveler, totally worth the price.
We mixed up the dates on our tour, thinking that the wine tour was on Thursday and not Wednesday. We arrived at the agency and they were very understanding and allowed us to join in on a tour of Barcelona tour that very morning. The tour guide was very nice and spoke three languages. It was very personal and very interesting. I'd recommend using Viator to anyone!

Perfect trip! Would have liked to spend more time in sites, but was also glad that it was not a full day tour. Would highly recommend this trip and company!
Really good tour and such a friendly guide. Highly recommended
Day trip was excellent. Our guide was very knowledgeable. The only negative thing was the rainy weather. Sitges would have been more enjoyable had it been dry. I highly recommend this tour.
Great tour of the Cava cellar!! And Sitges, the only thing I can say is I wish we had more time here. Beautiful city and beaches. BEST mojitos on the beach!
Interesting, informative and cool tour. Would recommend this to wine lovers and "champagne lovers"
A gorgeous day all around! Our guide, Agnes, accompanied us to Freixenet then Sitges. It was a little early to have a cava tasting at 11am, but no one was complaining! A tip- if the weather is nice, bring a suite and towel to the beach at Sitges and taken the train back into Barcelona later in the day.
This was another tour that was enjoyed by myself and my wife. having no knowledge of the area we were to visit, it was a pleasure to see what unfolded on this tour. The whole trip from start to finish was just amazing, and ourb guide who's name we have forgotten was one of the high lights of the day. The winery tour was very enjoyable, and then the trip to Sitges was another highlight, the only trouble we had was we did not have the time in Sitges we would have liked as we came across road works on the way, this could not be helped, Again I would HIGHLY reconmend this tour
This was definitely a nice escape from the big city. Getting up early in the morning wasn't the easiest thing to do, but the trip was very comfortable and had beautiful sights. The Freixenet tour was very informative and entertaining, although I wish the tasting had a bit more wine for free.
The tour to Sitges is def a must, what a beautiful small town. We had enough time to have a wine of glass, do some quick sight seeing and even go to the beach and get in the water.
In four words: you won't regret it.
I loved this tour. The wine caves were amazing and the tour itself was so interesting and informative. Sitges was beautiful. The guide was great, he really took the time to engage with everyone on the tour. He was pleasant and easy to talk to, and enthusiastic about the things we got to see and do on this tour.
