VinePair and Tailored Tours partnered in October to present Barcelona & the Catalan Wine Country. See a recap of our trip here!
Friends and I spent four days with VinePair and Tailored Tours exploring Barcelona, regional wineries, extraordinary restaurants, amazing architecture and important cultural sites. Jonathan and Luke introduced 20 diverse tourists to this beautiful, busy city, making us feel like friends not customers. Their deep knowledge of the city, coupled with their relationships with the community - their friends and neighbors love them - got us behind the scenes and up close throughout the entire tour. Jose was a special added bonus - his photos provide special memories, and his kindness will not be forgotten. Any visit to Barcelona should include time with Tailored Tours - as much time as possible! Thanks for the spectacular time and for the intro to vermouth!
Jon, Luke, Maddalena, and José are some of the best people that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Their walking tour is second to none, with a wonderful combination of knowledge, passion, and personality. There was nowhere we could go without some one passing on a cheerful greeting, and it is obvious what this city means to them. Over the four days with them, I genuinely felt at home and welcomed in a way I would never have expected from a stranger. These are special people that I will always go out of my way to connect with again.
I spent almost a week with friends and family on a wine tour in Barcelona with VinePair. Jonathan and Luke were our guides presenting an intimate, fun, creative and cultural introduction to a city they know and love. Having Jose there to take exquisite pictures of our experiences was a wonderful addition leaving us with spectacular views and memories. The atmosphere was warm and fun, and ended too quickly. It was an awesome and delightful experience that I would encourage everyone to choose.
