My two friends and I went on Paddy's Vilafranca del Penedès Wine & Culture Capital half day tour and it was wonderful. We biked to the winery (which was manageable for me, someone who hasn't been on a bike in several years) where we watched a short movie on the history of the winery and tasted several of their best...

We had a wonderful time with paddy as our guide to the Penedes wine region. We had to make a very last minute change of date for our tour due to illness and he had no problem at all switching dates for us. The bike office is the first thing you see as you get off of the train, especially... More

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.

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
