Owner description: Spanish Trails was born in 2001 as one of the first small group (max. 8 pers.) day tour companies and incoming travel agencies to experience the best of what Barcelona and all of Catalunya, Spain have to offer. Our year-round, regularly scheduled day tours are all-inclusive fully guided all day experiences, though guests are more than welcome to explore on their own. We cover the corners of Catalunya including the Costa Brava, Pyrenees, Girona, Montserrat and Penedes and Priorat wine regions, as well as half and full day Barcelona city tours and food & wine tours. We also specialize in customized family tours, private touring and small group events. We use comfortable touring vans and our staff are fun, experienced local guides with a deep love and knowledge of the regional history and culture. We have proudly served over 17,000 clients over the last 16 years. See you soon! The Spanish Trails team.

We had a wonderful time on the Catalonian Wine tour. Beautiful scenery, incredible wines and a friendly and entertaining guide made for one of our best days in Barcelona. Highly recommended

We booked a "Tapas and Wine Tour" in Barcelona with Danny, our guide who was born in NYC and now lives and works as a tourguide for some years in Barca. Apart from the variety of tapas and different sorts of wine Danny introduced us to we were really surprised by his deep knowledge of both, the history of the different quarters we walked through as well as the history of wine and tapas.

We fully enjoyed our tour which took appr. 4 hours, unfortunately this was our last day in Barca so we could not book another tour with the company.

Believe me, we had high expectations after reading all the reviews. We did two tours with Spanish Trails and both were amazing. The first one was the Tapas and wine tour with Danny. If you can only do one tour in Barcelona this would be the one to do. We not only learned a lot about Spanish wines we learned a lot about Barcelona and its different neighborhoods as well. It really helped us navigate the city better on our own. We had an amazing night out. i don't think we got back to our hotel until 1am. Danny also emailed us later with restaurant recommendations which we used. The restaurant was awesome and we would never ave found it on our own.

The ext day we did the Medieval village tour with Saskia(?). Another amazing tour. The town of Rupit is really beautiful. We learned a lot about the history of Catalonia on the drive up which made the ride very entertaining. We had breakfast at a wonderful bakery in Rupit. Great pastries,locally produced cheeses, sausage and hams. Fabulous. The hike was really beautiful and a great way to see some country outside of the city. Lunch was at a great old restaurant in Rupit. Saskia steered us toward traditional Catalan food and it was delicious! The service and the views were amazing. We got back to the city about 6:00. Just enough time to go back to the hotel, change and hit one of the restaurants Danny recommended!

We loved Barcelona and can't wait to go back. When we do I hope we can take every tour Spanish Trails offers.

Spanish Trails was recommended by a friend and we booked the Montserrat and Wine tour with Saskia. It was a great day. Delicious lunch at a Catalan Restaurant and lots of wine at a Bodega in the Penedes Region. I bought some to take home. Saskia is a walking Wikipedia plus she looks like Jodie Foster!! All entrances were included and we could skip some queues.

We immediately booked our second tour which was Tapas and Wine with Danny. The tour includes 5 different Tapas Bars and at each one we tried a variety of Catalan wine. Danny is a wine connoisseur from New York and apart from wine facts he also gave us an introduction to the history of Barcelona. The tour is fun and gets you in the mood for Barcelona nightlife :-)

The tour with Spanish Trails through wineries and taverns in Barcelona was fantastic. We had a great time and visited many interesting places. The level of knowledge and entertainment the guide provided was the best one I've seen in a guided tour before. More than out on a guided tour it seemed like we were out with a good friend who knew a lot about wine and the area. The next time I go back to Barcelona I will definitely repeat the experience and I highly recommend it to anyone in the area.
