Very nice people and very educational to learn about the kind of wine you like. Know we know wich one to buy.
Sitges is a gorgeous seaside town and the cava tour isn't to be missed! We decided to stay in Sitges a couple hours longer and took an easy train ride back to Barcelona.
This was a great tour. The Freixenet wine cellar museum is incredible. The only reason I didn't give this tour 5 stars is that we got a little rushed out of Sitges. The tour said that it would be 8 hours, leaving around 9am. That should have put us back in Barcelona around 4-5pm. We ended up having to leave around 2:30 which didn't give us enough time to eat lunch in Sitges. We would have taken the train back to Barcelona from Sitges had we not left a bunch of our stuff on the bus. Overall a good trip. Our guide was awesome as well.
We really enjoyed our tour to Freixenet and Sitges. The Freixenet tour was excellent -- we really enjoyed our tour and the tour guide there was terrific.
The only thing that bothered us is the voucher for the tour told us to be at the central office for 8:45am and we arrived at 8:40am and the tour guide and rest of the 4 people on the tour were already departing without us!! We saw the SMALL group departing and we had to rush into the office and have them called back. We didn't understand this as we weren't late and the group was so small it seemed really strange. I recommend people show up really early and just sit in the lobby to ensure this doesn't happen to you! We found it a little off-putting for the rest of the tour.
Was very a very romantic tour! We loved it, also very informative.
Lovely tour guide Rosa. The tour to the cava was very nice. Sitges it is real beautiful. The best part is that one have the choice to return later in train to Barcelona if one will like to stay there and enjoy the beaches.
This excursion was enjoyable. Our guide was very nice. The Winery tour was nice and our guide from Freixenet was pleasant and very knowledgeable. I did not care for their wines but, I'm not a much of a drinker. I did enjoy the town of Sitges, the beach was beautiful and the town is very quaint and loads of places to shop. I had a deliciousl falafel for lunch at ESTAMBUL, located on first street to left when you enter Sitges.
This trip is a visit to Freixenet's Wine Cellars and then a short walking tour through Sitges. Title and trip description can be misleading if not read properly.
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
