The tour was very personalised. Joan met us at the agreed destination. There was only 3 people as part of the tour. The winery was wonderful, a family owned experience with beautiful wines. The human tower was seen during the training sessions. It gave us a feel for the event and can only imagine what the atmosphere would be like during the festival. At the end of the day, Joan dropped us off at our ... more hotel. Highly recommended.

My girlfriend and I spent over a week in Barcelona and saw every tourist attraction on the list. We met Barbara, our guide, and the other folks on our trip at 5pm. The entire evening was tremendous: outstanding wines in a beautiful scenery with views of the Mediterranean. Later on we did a culinary tour in a Roman village nearby. Churros and Jamon were delicious! The last part of the tour was in the ... more human tower association. Amazing tradition and interesting history behind it. We loved watching “castells”.Barbara, our guide, was knowledgeable and entertaining. And the following morning, Barbara send us all pictures of the vineyards and the human towers. Amazing moments! If we return to Barcelona, we’ll definitely book again.
