The highlight of our time in Spain. Originally booked at the beginning of our trip, we had to move our tour to the end of our time in Spain. Our tour guide was Joseph, whose infectious enthusiasm for Barcelona and Spain, really made the experience for us. The tour begins with breakfast in a small mountain town w/ a breathtaking view of Montserrat. Pro tip - they make their own gin and honey! Buy some and you won't regret it! One of my favorite stops was at Vinya Nova for lunch and olive oil tasting. My biggest regret from my trip was not purchasing olive oil from this restaurant! The depth of flavor and golden almost buttery quality was unmatched in other olive oils I had tasted previously. I am still trying to convince people to go to Barcelona, take this tour.. and snatch me a couple of bottles! The tour is definitely a full day event, but one of the highlights of our total European adventure.
Great day great food and great guide what more could you ask for, even threw in a cooking lesson not that it really involved cooking. We were taught the spainish way of making bruschetta. Fun trip and being small everyone seemed to get along and enjoy the day
We reserved and paid for a van for our tour but were forced to take a car. There were 4 large adults and traveling in the car was very uncomfortable. We complained about the vehicle before we departed but were told we had to take the car, instead of a van, or lose our money. What would have probably been a very enjoyable tour turned out to be a total disappointment. I recommend against taking this tour or using this tour company as customer service is not their strong point.
I was fortunate enough to Josep as my tour guide and we got a private tour for two in a jaguar. Josep was an amazing tour guide who provided history and laughter. This was one of my favorite tours while we stayed in Barcelona. We had second breakfast at the cutest restaurant and the cuisine was fantastic. The visit to Monserrat was such a breathtaking experience and a spiritual one as well. The lunch prior to the winery visit was a culinary experience that we will never forget. I am still thinking about the codfish salad, paellla, coconut flan and of course the wine.The winery was also a treat because the wine was delicious and there was shipping available back to the US. I would say if you are lucky enough to have a tour with Josep, please make sure you do! If I could give him additional stars, I would.
We had a great day and our guide took us all the way up to Montserrat. Spectacular views! She was very helpful and told a lot of facts. We visited a bio/organic winery but didn't like their wine. Highlight was the lunch at the olive farm which was outstanding and best meal while in Barcelona.
We had a truly memorable day hosted by Joseph. First a lovely second breakfast on the way to Montserrat, where we had just the right amount of time to see the sights. The countryside we travelled through was pretty, and lunch in the foothills of Montserrat at Vinya Nova was exceptional. The final stop was a winery tour and tasting at Pares Balta which was interesting, but a little long on a hot day. For food and wine travellers this is a must do.
The best part of this was that, since there were only 4 people one couple, myself and the tour guide, it was very versatile. We had a fabulous breakfast, some really great chatting along the road, thought about doing a short detour to Montserrat, but turned back once we saw the car traffic, had an amazing lunch come really, really hungry and ended the day with some absolutely amazing wines!
