We booked this trip outside of the tours included in our vacation package and it was well worth it. The first stop was in a small village where we had a typical Calalonia breakfast with wine. Lunch was in a rustic farm house in the middle of an olive grove. The food with wine was delicious and plentiful. Needless to say our journey to the next town was quite a lively one. Our guide, Enrique, was great. So friendly, great sense of humour and very knowledgeable about the area. He really made our trip memorable. If you're looking for a small group tour, spectacular mountain views with good food and wine don't miss this one. It was by far our favourite. Thank you Enrique!
This was the best tour. The places are wonderful. Food excellent and the british guide tour was the right man for this tour, funny and loving.
This tour is excellent as a city break and is a must for wine lovers. Our guide Enrique makes all the difference. He is fun loving and funny, just the right man on this tour and I am sure the entire group agrees on that as well. The whole day was merry and merry. Had wine on the included breakfast, lunch and afternoon winery tour. One of the most memorable tour I have taken in Barcelona.
Despite the clouds and drizzle, we had a great day away from Barcelona, north to Montserrat. The local places we stopped to make our own tomato bread, and sample local meats and cheeses was enjoyable. The low hanging clouds at Montserrat actually gave a majestic feel like we were above the clouds. Also enjoyed eating grapes off the vines, touring the vineyard, and tasting wines and cava at the vineyard.
This tour was a fantastic introduction to Catalan food ,wine and culture. Alex our gorgeous guide was so enthusiastic and bubbly. This tour was a definite highlight of our travels through France Portugal and Spain.
Isi was an excellent guide. Very knowledgable about the area and made the experience both memorable and fun. Great food and wine the entire day.
If you love food and wine and meeting new people from different countries, this trip is a must. We were on a City Break to Barcelona, but fancied something a bit different and were very glad we did this trip. The traditional breakfast was probably one of my favourite parts of the trip. You got a really good insight and feel of a traditional Spanish breakfast as you are taken somewhere where no normal tourist would go. The traditional Spanish lunch however wasn't so traditional as we weren't told that it was the Spanish holidays therefore for two weeks of the year, some people go away, therefore our lunch was based in a restaurant and not outside like I hoped We went towards the end of August. Saying that, the lunch at Ticus was AMAZING! The best fresh pasta dish I have ever had! The wine tasting is ideal for first timers, as it gives you an easy and interesting insight into wine and cava and of course the wine tasting part of the trip was brilliant. Our tour guide Feliciano was brilliant, such a laid back friendly guide with great knowledge of Barcelona and Spain in general. All in all a worth while trip, thank you.

Simply excellent. Definitely on of the best days of our travels through France and Spain. It was amazing to see all of the natural beauty and delicious food and wine just over an hour's drive from Barcelona. Guide Alex was very knowledgeable and personable and gave us a very nice glimpse into the local customs and traditions. Don't miss it!
This was the best trip of my holiday. The guide, Feliciano Doniguez, was probably the best guide I have ever had. His knowledge of everything to do with the area and of the food and wine associated with it was excellent. Don't have any breakfast before you go. The food commencing from the large breakfast to the 4 course lunch to the wine tasting is superb. Well worth the money. I would highly recommend this day out.
Absolutely amazing. Guide, transportation, food and winery were outstanding! Highly recommend this tour!!!
Words wouldn't be enough to describe such a beautiful day with our guide George ....a very rich tour in every way ....generous ..a very good variety of food and wines ...highly recommended to all ages ...thank you viator for making our stay in Barcelona remarkable ....
Fantastic tour.Beautiful views,good food and wine.Guide was perfect and we did have a really good time.Would highly recommend it to everyone.
The tour was fantastic. It was a friendly intimate tour with 4 couples including the tour guide Jordi who brought his girlfriend. The van comfortably sat the eight of us. Each meal and tour stop was a learning experience in Catalan cuisine and/or culture. I highly recommend this wonderful excursion!
The tour was awesome and David our guide / driver was excellent. He was really informative and great fun to spend the day with! Would highly recommend this tour if you like food and wine and are keen for a day out of the City.
Fabulous! Loved it! Tour guide Enrique was informative, funny and polite. The tour was very interesting and more than I expected. Food was delicious. I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see a little of the countryside outside of Barcelona.
A wonderful day from start to finish! Our guide, Jordie, was helpful and informative without being intrusive. The food and drink was excellent and the choice of dishes for lunch - a bit of a rarity in my experience of trips like these - was very good. The visit to Monserrat was lovely. Recommended!
Our tour guide, Isi, was knowledgeable, fun and was one of the highlights of our tour. Also, the tour of Pares Balta winery was also really great because the woman, Aina, who was in charge of the tasting and showing us the winery was just fantastic.
Outstanding! Took us places we would have never found on our own. Food was great and wine was very good, too. Guide had a sense of adventure and we sure saw a lot of places and got some great history.
An absolutely wonderful day with our tour guide Anna. Much better than we were expecting with a beautiful drive into the mountains, a charming breakfast and surprisingly elegant lunch both were delicious! and an awesome tour of Pares Balta vineyards. Was a much longer day than I was expecting we got back around 6:30pm but wouldn't change a thing.
This by far, was the best tour we took on our trip to Madrid and Barcelona. We took this trip on our first day in Barcelona and it was an incrediable tour . As it turned out, there were only two of us on this particular tour so it was like a private tour. Our tour guide, Feliciano, was just an awesome guide who gave us lots of additional information and useful tips about Barcelona, Spain etc. Feliciano made our trip so much fun and took us to some amazing resturants where the food was to die for. We were also treated to the magnificent scenery of Monserrate. The winery that was chosen was wonderful. It was a small, family owned and run ,organic and biodynamic vineyard. tThe wine and cheeses were delicious and we even were able sample some of their homemade olive oil.This tour was done at a very relaxed pace and even though it covered a lot of time, the time flew by and when it was over, we felt we had an old friend in Baecelona, through Feliciano. He is such a fun and interesting person and a great guide. Thank you Feliciano, for a truly wonderful and fun day ! G Henry and K Alexander
This was the best tour of my entire trip.The guide, Anna, made it seem like a day out with a friend instead of a guided tour. As we had all done Montserrat, she quickly found a cheese making tour as an alternative event and that was great. The wine tour was the most informative of any that I had taken. If you want an introduction to the Catalon way of life this is the tour to take. The food was wonderful. i definately recommend this tour. It was so good i will take it again next time I am in Barcelona. I loved it.
The best of our choice !
Good food; nice wine and excellent choice of restaurant !
The winery tour at Pares Balta was a great experience for us.
