Penedès: Self-Guided Bike Tour with Winery Visit
- Small group
- Duration: 4 hours
We are a group of friends that came to visit Barcelona for a long weekend and wanted to have a cool and different experience. Taking in consideration that none of us had ever ridden a horse, this tour was a perfect match for us. From start to finish we were accompanied by a friendly guide who was kind and super helpful in every way possible. The area where we rode was stunningly beautiful and the horses we mounted were highly taken care of and very easy to ride for us. I’m an animal lover and I found great that we could spend some extra time with the horses. Later we went to this small, enchanting vineyard that was obviously family owned. The owners of the winery were so nice and friendly that we felt at home. Not to say how good all the tapas and wine were and the great explanation they gave us about the hard work and tradition behind it, we were wowed. Overall, this was a sublime adventure that was definitely worth the time and money. We all highly recommend it!
Our guide Cristina was amazing! So good to have a young, energetic tour guide rather than someone older. This tour is well worth doing, the only reason I couldn't give it 5 stars is that I would have liked more time at Montserrat to see more there, and less in Sitges, as Sitges was nothing special- basic beach town with not much to do except sit in a restaurant until it was time to return to the bus. Still, this was a great day out.
It felt like you needed more time at Montserrat and they told us that the choir plays at 1 pm but we had to leave at noon and were not able to see all the grounds such as the Stations of the Crpss or the top of the mountain besides the choir. Maybe offer only 2 places like Montserrat and Stiges, or Montserrat and the wine tour. However, guide and the tours were beautiful places and a great tour.
This is really a phenomenal and amazing experience ! We had a small group, which made it more intimate, and our tour guide who is also the founder and owner of this company did a wonderful job of explaining the A region, the history, and we were stopped along the way to take pictures and to get intimate with the vineyards. It was truly the highlight of our trip!!
Our exceedingly knowledgeable and pleasant guide Daniella did much to make this long but impressive tour a pleasant and memorable outing. The Torres vineyards visit was quite impressive if perhaps a bit niggardly regarding wine tasting as such. The rest was in every way simply highly enjoyable.
