“Wonderful day trip from Barcelona - great guide in a beautiful region!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

My friend and I took a tour with Paddy this November while we were visiting Barcelona, and honestly couldn't have been more impressed and pleased with the experience. Paddy immediately made us feel at home in the beautiful Penedes, and shared his wealth of knowledge about the area - and the wine and food produced there - with us without launching into standard tour guide-style lectures. He clearly has a love for the region and the people, and was able to offer us a truly unique experience given his relationships with people in the area, and customized based on our interests. It was a perfect day trip from Barcelona (the train out there is very convenient from BCN). Great wine, great food, and a great guide with fascinating conversation - we couldn't have asked for more!

“Cavalicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

The El Moli website was really comprehensive and all the information was clear and made all aspects of travel easy. We took the train from Catalunya station to Villafranca without any problems. We met Paddy who made our trip extremely enjoyable! He was a great guide who enlightened us to the treats of Penedes. Lunch at Sant Jordi was fantastic, a taste of true Catalan! Our tour was weather affected so cycling was not on the cards for the full day but Paddy turned part of the trip into a wine/culture/history tour. It was a fabulous day, we highly recommend El Moli tours.

“Not to be missed! A wine tour with a difference.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

If you are in the Barcelona or Penedes region then you must put this on your 'to do' list. Paddy is a superb host who knows the area, the wineries and the wines. We cycled through the area with Paddy's guidance and had an unforgettable day. Paddy really looked after us and ensured we got the most from our day. Highly recommended!

“Lovely day cycling through vineyards and olive groves, interesting winery tour and yummy good value lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

We had a really enjoyable and fun day cycling at our own pace along the back roads of Penedes. Paddy set us up so we could do our own thing but gave us lots of tips and recommendations to guide us. I'd highly recommend this tour for a taste of this very pretty, relaxed and friendly area. thanks Paddy!!

“A Cava experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

This was an excellent wine/cava tour and must do if you are in the region! Paddy is a great guide (and storyteller!).

The wineries visited are good (with defintely a standout few) and cycling is not too demanding. There is even a cheeky visit to a small olive oil factory to see an old stone press.

Overall I would highly recommended! Even a lost watch was found and sent back to the UK by Paddy.

Thanks Paddy!!!
