This was my first trip to Barcelona and the highlight of the entire trip was the bike tour my friends and I had with Paddy and Roger in Villa Franca!!!! A one hour train ride outside of Barcelona, we met Paddy and Roger at a little cafe just outside the train station and had a perfect espresso before starting our... 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

Wonderful day trip away from the city. The biking and cava tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Spain. Guided by the very entertaining, fun, and interesting Paddy, we were delighted with a very well composed mix of wine, cava, biking, food, and culture that he organizes at just the right pace. The scenery is gorgeous, the... More

My friends and I took a tour with Paddy and he was excellent! We went to some wineries, which had excellent wine, and out for lunch in the countryside, and the whole day was excellent. One of the members of our group was a *little* demanding - but he responded to the situation very professionally. I would highly recommend this... More

We hired a couple of bikes from Paddy for the self-guided tour. Paddy was very helpful and drove us up to his premises in Torelles de Foix which also showed us our cycling route. Although we were just hiring the bikes, Paddy was really informative, giving us loads of local tips from where to eat (we had a great lunch... More

Two non-spanish speakers took a train from busy Barcelona station, followed the directions from our home travel agent, and somehow managed to at rush hour morning get on the right train going in the right direction, to the Penedes region. Once on the train, and out of Barcelona, we relaxed as the weather cleared up and enjoyed the scenery. Paddy... More

What a day! From our initial meeting through the cycling, the wine tasting, the lunch, I can honestly say it was a pleasure and a privilege. A pleasure because of the leisurely cycling through the beautiful working countryside, the wine tasting and wine education, the two hour Catalonia lunch, the historic insights to the region and it's people. A privilege... More
