Four of us did the cycling tour on a sunny day at the first of October. It was marvelous! The wineries were interesting, the scenery beautiful, the lunch delicious, and Paddy (& his beautiful daughter) entertaining. The biking was on easy terrain at an easy pace. What more could one want for the money?! I just wish we could have... More

I organized a day with Paddy before leaving the States for Barcelona. Paddy was very responsive via email and it was easy to put together a tour and pay a deposit via Pay Pal. We traveled by train from Placa Catalunya directly to Villafranca, which was easy to navigate and inexpensive. We were able to visit two excellent wineries and... More

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
