Fantastic horse-riding and wine tour experience
We had an amazing day with Ivan! He was very punctual, and friendly and still gave us space to talk among ourselves. We started the day with a lovely excursion on horseback, then visited two small family-owned wineries where Ivan and the owners gave us just the right amount of information about the (delicious) wines, along with delicious local food. We would definitely repeat this activity!

Do this tour!!!
Ivan was an excellent guide and the Penedes is an amazing place with outstanding wine. You get into, the countryside surprisingly quickly and with a guide who is fun and familiar with many regional topics, having grown up in the area. Worth every penny!!!

Not to be missed
Ivan gave us a most individual trip, we have been to the area before but this trip took us right to the heart of the area, speaking to people involved in the industry, not just a person dealing with visitors. The visit to the biodynamic vineyard was amazing, standing within those vines was so peaceful and we could really sense how at one with nature they were. An excellent day throughout with a wonderful guide – Ivan looked after us really well and was very obliging, I am so glad we booked this it made our holiday.

A rewarding experience
A beautiful ride that is worth knowing. Touring the fields and vineyards by bike has no point of comparison. We chose the ecobrunch option and had a delicious meal and tasting of different wines from the region. A rewarding experience, of great quality and attention from the staff. We will be back!!
A great day in the wine fields with e-bike
We had a great day biking in the wine fields in Penedes. The bike rental is right by the train station. With google maps, it was easy to follow the route and it was beautiful. The wine tasting was very good and in a cute setting. We found it very well organized with fast responses. Would definitely book again!
Lovely cava tour
Ivan took us on a private tour to 2 wineries, both family-owned. one was very small but growing grapes for many years. Both were excellent & the owners did the tastings & tour. Spanish-aged cava is so delicious. A gorgeous day to sit outside & enjoy lunch looking over the vineyard. Ivan is a terrific & caring host, you will really enjoy your day.

Unforgettable and beautiful wine tour
Ivan was an excellent tour guide. He took us to two organic wineries in Penades, and both were incredible. Ivan was so knowledgeable about the region and the wines. Our experience was truly personalized and one of a kind. I’d give it 10/10 stars.

Great advice with very easy booking and communication with the organizer prior to payment to know all details and ask questions, very friendly owners at the tours site with highly recommended horse riding trip in Barcelona country side. Amazing experience.
We had a lovely tour! Stopped at two beautiful wineries and had a really nice brunch. It was easy to get to by train from Barcelona and the bike rental place was right next to the train station. Highly recommend using the electric bike as there were some hills! All in all, a lovely experience.
A day well-spent with an avid historian. Our guide was generous with his knowledge and showed us
many unique locations. We were happy to make personal connections with the families who take care
of a heritage of wine making.

wino.tours - a really good choice
It was a very good tour.
Ivan does well curating the sites / wineries to visit during the tour. The meal, restaurant was also outstanding!
We were able to visit an entirely new area outside of Barcelona that was beautiful because of this, Priorat was breath taking!

Ivan was wonderful! He was so knowledgeable and was so much fun with our group. Having our own private group was the best. All the spots he picked out were wonderful and so unique. And he made the day so enjoyable! We would 100% recommend Wino Tours to anyone and everyone!

Epic private tour with Ivan. WORTH EVERY CENT
Ivan was an incredible guide.
I paid for a private tour, and he want above and beyond to ensure the day was amazing for me.
He was extremely receptive to my expression of the experience I desired to have. He even altered plans a bit upon getting more feedback from me, around what I wanted to do. We literally did exactly what I wanted, and it was even better than I could have planned or imagined it.
A private tour is literally worth EVERY euro.
There is so much included in the cost of the tour that it is actually impressive he doesn’t charge more. You could easily spend the same or more than the cost of the tour in a day of renting a car, paying for gas, paying for all the wine tastings and tours, and also paying for one’s own food and water. Also, not to mention, the value his knowledge and ability to guide and pre-arrange these experiences brings, is amazing. Consider this.
I would absolutely do this again with Ivan.
Go check out El Priorat. It is magical and has seriously delicious wine, olive oil, and food. Ivan will make your visit to Catalunya unforgettable.
4x4 through the different environments
Had the most incredible experience today on the Wino Tour with Florence and her beautiful winery at Pares Balta. We were so lucky to be there for harvest and sampled many different varieties of grapes that were ripe and ready as we 4×4 through the different environments. A tour of the wine barrels and Cava cellar was finished off with some gorgeous wine sampling. The best day we have had in Spain! Thank you Ivan for helping to organize such an experience.
Visit to Priorat Sep 2022
Ivan was our guide for the 12 hours tour to the Priorat wine region. We left Barcelona very early and arrived at the Más Doix cellars, a new building facing the Monsant mountain range. During that visit, joined by another couple of tourists, we tasted 5 different wines made with Granatxa and other local grapes. A visit to Cartoixa d’Escaladei (Carthusian Monastery of Santa Maria d’Escaladei) was extremely useful to understand the history (since the year 1200) behind this prolific region of quality wines. We had lunch at the Clos Figueres restaurant where we tried an excellent Garnatxa wine (Figueres 2017) with our food based on local produce. We ended our tour with a very detailed visit to Scala Dei, the most known cellar of the region. Along the visit, we enjoyed the enthusiasm of Paul, our internal guide, a very proud Brit that has been in the region for over 20 years. A special recognition to the knowledge of Ivan, not only in terms of the Priorat region but of Catalonia at large. All in all, a very remarkable experience that I strongly recommend.

The Perfect Tour
My husband and I enjoyed a day trip from Barcelona to the Priorat region with Ivan as our driver, guide and companion. The entire day was a delight from start to finish. We visited two wineries, had an incredible and memorable lunch, and took in a few attractions and vistas along the way. A bonus of our tour was that Ivan is a history enthusiast, so we got our wine tour, along with all kind of insights on Barcelona, Catalonia, its people, culture and history during the drive.I will also add that we requested a tour just three days in advance, and Ivan quickly responded and made it happen. The whole experience felt tailored for us, a day trip with a friend, not a canned tour. Highly recommend!

Great experience! Perfect organization! Everything simple 🙂 The bikes are very good, the wineries are very nice, the wine and cava are spectacular, and the food is top! Iván took care of everything, super easy payment, everything almost from one day to the next. It’s worth it! 100% recommendable!
The experience was excellent. Beginning with the communication and kindness in the process of choosing an activity with Wino Tours (very close and personal attention), ending with the visit to the Albet i Noya winery (Visit to the vineyards and Eco-brunch). Highly recommended, very good wines that are not widely known in Catalonia/Spain because, being organic, they are mostly exported.
What a fantastic way to spend the day visiting wineries in Priorat. Ivan is a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. We visited two wineries and had lunch in an amazing restaurant. The tour exceeded our expectations and was the highlight of our holiday. We would recommend it for anyone with even a passing interest in wine.

Horse-back riding and picnic
Ivan was very helpful with our bookings and experiences, I could not have been more pleased. The horse riding and picnic we went to can highly be recommended. 10/10 experience.
Scala Dei winery tour
Wine and Choclate Pairing
Highly recommended experience. Ivan’s attention was excellent at all times and Florence who did the tasting for us made us enjoy a great experience.
Horse-back ride and cava tasting
Great combination of beautiful landscapes, fun activities, and very good wine to enjoy with friends.
