Description

When arriving at the train station we are greeted by the smell of freshly roasted cocoa beans. This quiet market town is not only home of the best Catalan chocolate maker but also the center of Cava production - the local sparkling wine made according to the same method and quality as French Champagne.

A short 10 minutes walk will lead us to an artisan Cava maker. With a history spanning more than 150 years this small scale, family run winery focuses on crafting premium quality, organic Cava. Descending into the cellars where the bottles are resting we will explain the history & methods used to create high quality sparkling wine. Upstairs we will have the chance to observe the disgorging & labelling process. We finish this experience in the leafy courtyard where we will take our time to enjoy various vintages while learning more about the different types of Cava.

After a stroll through the village's narrow streets we arrive to the chocolate factory with a tradition of 175 years. Here we will enjoy a unique experience for all five senses. Not only will we learn about cocoa, chocolate’s history & culture but also taste their different specialties.

Fabulous tour
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Wine Tour: Exclusive Champagne & Chocolate Experience)
What an awesome day! We opted to go early and have lunch first and Christian picked a selection of local Spanish appies that were so good. Doing the tour with him was like spending the day with a good friend. The chocolate is first class and Cava is amazing. Chocolate factory tour is very well done and we loved the quaint, family run winery where everything is so personal. The train trip through beautiful Spanish countryside was very enjoyable. A very fabulous day, you won’t regret booking this tour!

10-star experience
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Wine Tour: Exclusive Champagne & Chocolate Experience)
Amazing day! Cava, chocolate and a very knowledgeable tour guide who feels more like an old friend, it doesn’t get any better! Christian has access to a very old Cava House/Cellar and it was just so cool! We felt like VIP’s. After touring the cellars and watching them disgorge and cork the bottles we had a tasting in their beautiful garden . Great great Cava ...and many options. We took advantage of the lunch add on and it was spectacular. Delicious and very reasonably priced. Then on to Simon Coll, chocolate chocolate chocolate! I wish I bought more. Very professional tour of their facility and generous tasting . Take this tour, we had a great time learned so much on this delicious day away from the city. Would give it 10 ⭐️ if I could Thank you Christian!

Exceeded my expectations!
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Wine Tour: Exclusive Champagne & Chocolate Experience)
It’s an experience that had exceeded my expectation! Christian’s very friendly and attentive and the tour was arranged in such a way that it’s both relaxing and fun. My mom and I had a most enjoyable day out filled with cava, chocolate and interesting conversations (not to mention the lunch that Christian suggested and arranged for us was also great!) The highlight of the day was during our visit to the cava cave we ran into the cave owner, and I was given the chance to learn to open a bottle of cava with a sabre, which was really an unexpected and memorable experience :) Thanks Christian!

Very interesting!
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Gaudí & Barcelona Legends)
Christian was our guide in Barcelona... He was very knowledgeable about the architecture and showed us things that we would neverr have noticed ourselves. It was 2 hours long and it was actually only the 2 of us (2 others we're no show) but their max is 6 anyway. Great value for a small group which are sooo much better!
Excellent tour with friendly guide
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Explore hidden streets with friends)
I am not new to Barcelona, in fact I used to live in this city. However, the three hour private walking tour with Christian was surprisingly new and gave me plenty of new knowledge about history and architecture of Barcelona. The pace of the tour was excellent, the contents a good mix of well-known sights and hidden gems. I strongly recommend this private guided tour to anyone interested in knowing more about Barcelona, whether on their first visit or as a veteran of this city.

Perfect!
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Gaudí & Barcelona Legends)
Christian’s knowledge of architecture, history, culture, and Spanish current events is extensive to say the least - we learned so much! In addition to Christian’s wealth of knowledge he’s just a great guy! So personable, friendly and accessible. He made really great recommendations for restaurants and other local points of interest. This experience was the perfect way to start our visit to Barcelona.
