Paddy dropped our rental bikes off at our B&B in the evening, and we had the whole day to tour the region at our leisure. He provided maps, in advance and with the bikes, and made excellent suggestions on where to go. It was relaxing and safe to meander through the vineyards. I highly recommend cycling to Sant Marti Sarocca,... More

We had a blast biking to see the vineyards. The weather was perfect! If you are in the area and looking a good little workout you will have a blast! Manny was the best guide. He knows our wines

Had a fantastic day. Hired bikes, Paddy met us at the train station with bikes with bags, water and gel seat. Great to have the freedom to explore and call into vineyards without time restrictions. Lunch in cal la Katy was wonderful. All round super day, best day of the holiday by far. Thanks paddy.

Paddy made our day so special. Attention to every detail... beautiful scenery, great food, cycling, wine, and it was wonderful being in Spanish countryside instead of crowded, commercial city.

I booked the full-day cycling tour with wineries visits a few month in advance so Paddy had plenty of time to prepare. So he did. The biking part guided by Miguel (local guy) was as good as I expected. At the first winery we spent 1.5 hours or so and it was quite lovely. And then Paddy joined us for... More

We decided to do a wine tour of Penedès on rather short notice after some unseasonably bad weather finally broke and the sun came out. I called El Moli Tours in the evening and spoke to Paddy, expecting not to be able to do a tour until later in the week. But instead, he was able to accommodate us the... More

We were just hiring bikes for the day for the wine tour without a guide, and perhaps this is why we received such a lack lustre greeting. After firstly arguing with us over the wrong meeting time we were emailed, he then gave us little direction of where to cycle, stating it was our responsibility to research the maps online... More
