5 stars for the Freixenet trip. The trip into the cellars is worth seeing and the one site guide was good fun and very informative. The trip length at this site was adequate.
The village of Sitges was pleasant. Had it not been part of the tour then I'd have been unlikely to have seen it. Our coach guide took us a walk from the back of the village down to the beach stopping to give us a few pieces of information about the place. OK but nothing to write home about. Once at the beach were were left to our own devices to walk or stop for lunch. I'd, if ever back, walk back into the village from the beach as I'd say the choice of food, and price, will be better.
You are given the opportunity to make your own way back by train thus allowing you a chance to explore further, something that might be better knowing in advance rather than when you get there. The train, we were told, is frequent and cheap.
Coach was clean and our guide was informative.
If you have a few days in Barcelona then this is worth doing to see a little of the countryside and grab a glass of Cava (if you've not already done so by then).
The Freixenet's Tour was interesting to see and do and Sitges is beautiful. We had plenty time in Sitges (a little over an hr) to get lunch and walk around a little. The guide was nice and told us of a few things in Sitges but would maybe better to just take the train into the town for the day.
The tour was great, but there wasn't enough time to really visit Sitges. Freixenet was a beautiful place and they did a great tour.
Really enjoyed both parts of this day trip! Apart from the weather, which is out of anyone's control, I learned a lot about cava at Freixenet and enjoyed a lovely stroll by the beach in Sitges evening putting my feet in the Baleric Sea! Also had the best paella at the Santa Maria restaurant. Only thing is as as mentioned in other reviews, more time is needed to adequately enjoy Sitges. Viator/Julia Travel may want to extend this trip by at least another hour. Also, our guide, Mark was excellent and answered all my questions as well as recommending restaurants once we returned to Barcelona. Thank you Viator for a lovely day!
The Freixenet and Sitges tour was a relaxing and informative day. The Cava tour provided insights into the history of Cava and how its made. Also, the various types of Cava and ageing process. Sitges is a small quiet town, easy to get around with a great beach. Overall, a good day away from bustling Barcelona. TP
I would highly recommend this tour. The guide was very informative on the way to and from the Winery and the winery tour itself was great. We had around 12 people on our tour which was just right, especially at the winery as it gave you a chance to ask questions.
i actually missed this tour; however, i went to the Montserrat Tour and it was excellent. Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about Montserrat and Barcelona. He was also able to communicate very well in several languages: Italian, French, Spanish, and English. The only thing: I wish we were able to have more time to be at Montserrat.
A nice break from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona. The tour bus was very comfortable, Freixenet had a wonderful guide and Sitges, well let's just say I plan to make that a multi-day side trip next time.
excellent tour guide and transport arrangements. Freixenet tour was fantastic experience.Could have done with more time in Sitges, only had time to find somewhere for lunch, eat it in a hurry and get back to the assembly point to go back to Barcelona. An extra hour in Sitges would have made the trip 5 stars for us
I found this trip to be amazing. It was great going by coach to see the country side as we drove. The wine tour was professional and very interesting. Great to taste the product after the tour :) The tour in Sitges was short but to the point. Had some spare time to explore for myself which was fun. Immensely enjoyed this tour.
Good tour, wine tasting and history of cava wine excellent if your a wine lover. Not enough time to spend in Sitges need to start the tour earlier and finish later or explain how to catch the train back to Barcelona. Sitges was beautiful! The departure point should be described better. Great tour though!
What a great day it was! The wine cellar tour was very interesting and informative. The process of making wine, wow! Sitges is a pretty little place full of shops and gorgeous views of the coast. A picture paradise! Not a lot of time here but you receive a map so you can hit the places you really want to see. It was a great day!
