I was in two minds as to whether to go on this trip as the local tour operator, who runs it, use the huge tour buses with really large groups with commentary given in at least two languages - and it is exhausting to listen to things twice. That said, the places we visited, Jean Leon, Freixenet and Torres were quite spectacular. We were treated like royalty with very (very) generous wine tastings and tours. At Torres we got to pair cheeses with three different wines and the tasting room, staff and snacks - not to mention the cava - at Freixenet was superb. Wouldn't hesitate to do it again.
This was great... Anyone who is going to Barcelona need to do this. We bought a bottle ow wine and cava to bring home.
What an excellent way to spend a day! Our guide was VERY knowledgeable and great about answering all our questions. The wineries were beautiful and each had their own special quality. The wine was delicious and they kept us with excellent tapas!
Highly, highly recommend this tour!
A great experience! It was really nice to be able to go to 3 different wineries and learn about different things at each. Each place had food, and although I was little hungry, it was nothing to worry about. The 2nd and 3rd place had really great good too. I would definitely recommend!
The Wine and Cava day trip from Barcelona was really fun. It was wonderful to see the countryside outside of Barcelona and learn about the wine making business. The wines (and cheeses) we tasted were delicious. I would definitely do it again and/or recommend it to anyone.
This was a WONDERFUL excursion while in Barcelona. In fact, probably my favorite thing that we did! Each winery was beautiful and the group was small enough so there was time to ask questions. I loved the cheese and wine pairings at Torres winery! Delicious. My only complaint would be to have a little more time to shop/look around at each winery. 30 minutes seems like enough, but it sure went by quickly. All in all, totally worth the money and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
We had a very great time at the WIne and Cava day trip. We went to 3 wineries and was able to try different wines and get the stories of the wineries from informative guides.There was a previous post that said they wish they food at the tours, so we brought a bagette, but there was no need. Each winery paired their wines with food. The first winery gave us a glass of their wine with snacks, the 2nd winery gave us a Wine and cheese pairing ( about 6 wines and 6 cheese/bread pairings), and the last winery gave us 2 glasses of cava with meat and cheeses. We wish we had a little longer in each of the wineries but it was overall a great experience and we had alot of wine!!
I booked the tour as a birthday present for my partner. Excellent day, very interesting. Tour guides were very knowledgeable and informing. Learned a lot about wine and tasting. Would definitely go again. Thank you
We had the best time on this day trip. The bus left promptly and was very comfortable. The driver was good and the tour guide was very genial. He was good at setting out for us the timetables so that we could stay on schedule. The first vineyard, Jean Leon, did not have much to it, but the setting was lovely and it was interesting to be able to see the different grape varietals that were planted near the start of the tour and to be able to taste the ripe grapes, as we were there during the harvest season. Jean Leon is actually now owned by Torres, which was our next stop. Since they are a huge producer, we went around the estate by tram. The tasting and cheese pairing was just lovely, and their museum was also interesting. Frexinet. was great because we got to go deep into the cellars and walk around with our guide. There was one person of limited mobility on our tour, and this part was challenging - they have elevators, but of course that means that this person had to regularly leave the group and meet up with us. The tasting at the end was wonderful and the tapas quite plentiful. We had packed snacks because previous reviews had stated that the food was limited, but we did not open the snacks and had almost no appetite at dinner time. (OK, maybe just a few tapas.) I was really glad we took the tour and spend some time in the countryside with such agreeable folks.
We had a wonderful time . Very pleased with the experience and worth the price. Try it for a very nice day outside Barcelona
