Exceptional tour great fun and informative everyone in our group enjoyed themselves.

Marcel was amazing tour guide and very informative! It was highlight of my fiancé and my trip. I wish we would have known up front about paying for Cava tour. I thought that was included. That is why I booked because I thought it was included. Overall great trip!

Wonderful guide Eduardo was a safe driver, excellent English and humor and insights on Montserrat. It was great to be picked up and dropped off at our lodgings and Eduardo had all the tickets purchased for the day. Recommend the cava tour!

Marcel was a great guide. We enjoyed both outings. We would have preferred an hour less at Monserrat, but we have few regrets. Llopart was a great time, and we definitely bought a few bottles to bring home
