This was an outstanding all day tour, visiting three different wineries. Each winery had plenty of tastings and they were complemented with some tasty snacks. Each winery was uniquely different and each winery had very informative tour guides. I would highly recommend this tour for all who like to sample wine. One final note, you would have some difficulty finding all of these locations on your own.

Great trip. Lots of fun and informative. The guides at each winery were fantastic. One improvement could be more exact directions to help locate the tour company's locale. We had difficulty finding them based on the information supplied by viator,

Visited small and large wineries with a great selection of wines and cava. We were very impressed with the Torres presentation and wine pairings...they were the best of the day. The video presentations on the bus ride added to the experience..great idea.

Very nice day trip. Smooth process to check in and get on the bus at a good central location. Wineries ranged from very small to very large and there was plenty of info and tastings provided on all three. I would suggest bring a small light lunch to supplement the snacks/tapas provided.

This trip was important to us in that we really wanted to discover this wine region and see the cava production. Our guide was very nice and understanding when we were late getting out of the gift shops after each visit. The only problem is the process to get started so early with the waiting to load and collect all the participants. I wish we could meet at the coffee shop. Thank you.
