Excellent day with Francisco and an excellent experience. Francisco is very knowledgeable and we learned a great deal. The experience at the Cava winery very special and the tour to Monserrat outstanding. We saw everything we wanted to in a day and had the best tour guide to make our experience special. Francisco also took professional photos of us at key points throughout the day. A fantastic experience and great memories.
