Tour: #603347, Sunrise in Montserrat & organic cheese in a farm, Barcelona, Cataluña, Spain    view tour
Date: Jan 3/20

Our day with David was simply the best. The early morning Montserrat sunrise was amazing and worth the early pickup. We found David knowledgeable, interesting and very entertaining. As for the visit to the goat farm, it was incredible. Goats, baby goats, dogs, and a puppy = pure joy for our kids! And we can't forget the delicious farmer's brunch and cheeses/wines with our host Daniel. Our day with David was simply the best day of our vacation to Spain. Thanks, David for making our day so memorable!

We had a fantastic day with David. He met us (well before dawn) with a smile and kept us informed and entertained the entire day. Monserrat at sunrise was gorgeous and a wonderful time to visit, as we didn't see another tourist until we were on our way out. The artisanal cheese farm he took us to was a treat! We arrived to find a homemade "brunch" with wine/ cheese tasting, and got to share a wonderful "Thanksgiving" breakfast with the family owners. A highlight of our Barcelona adventure!

David's Cava tour was excellent! We had an individual tour of two cava wineries. We thoroughly enjoyed them. Plus the local restaurant for tapas was the best we experienced in the 3 weeks we were traveling. We love small local, family run places. This tour hit them all and all were excellent. We would definitely do this again!

Date: Nov 2/19

David is really nice. He is a great tour guide sharing a depth of knowledge of history, culture, arts, wine and viticulture and the region of Catalonia. The tour was extremely educational and individualized. Afterwards, we visited Christopher and tasted and learned about Spanish wine. This is a great experience for anyone who loves wine, history, culture and art history and wants to get a condensed amount so you can be on your own later to explore some more. Thank you David for a great tour!!!

Tour: Day trip to the Priorat Wine Region, Barcelona, Cataluña, Spain
Date: Oct 29/19

We can't say enough about how great David was as our guide for touring wineries in Priorat and Penedes. He was very helpful in customizing our tours to our needs. His knowledge of the areas is extensive and his connections with the wineries resulted in very in-depth, personalized visits. Anyone wishing to dig deeper into these two regions should definitely contact him. He's such a fun and personable guy to spend the day with. He has our highest recommendation.

After enjoying many guided experiences, I can divide them into 2 categories: those that feel like you're observing, and those that feel like you are immersing. Time with David was decidedly the latter. By days end, we felt we had experienced the Penedes while hanging out with old friends. We drank spectacular wines poured by passionate winemakers, had a sumptuous meal in a small town (far from the crowds of Barcelona), while chatting with all as if we'd been pals for years. A great, great day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow Joe. This feedback means a lot to me. It just encourages to keep doing what I do. I wish you both all the best. Thanks a million!

Tour: #603347, Early Hike in Montserrat, goat farm and cava winery, Barcelona, Cataluña, Spain    view tour
Date: Sep 14/19

David did a wonderful job personalizing our dawn hike to Montserrat followed by a visit to a goat farm and a wonderful brunch in the field created by the farm family and concluding with a very fun visit to a small cava producer. He did a pilot run of the hike the week before to make sure the timing worked and throughout the day his enthusiasm was clearly evident that he loved his job sharing the Catalonia region with guests. This day was a highlight of our week!

For those that aren't familiar with Spanish wine Barcelona is very close to where Cava (Spanish sparkling wine) is produced. David takes you on a wonderful day trip (short drive from DT Barcelona) exploring the region, tasting and educating you on this wonderful wine region. This is a very special tour as David takes you to some of the smaller wineries where the families take you the tour of their properties personally. This is a not to be missed experience if you are in Barcelona, Gracias M/PSeal

David was a great guide, We did the sunrise at Montserrat, Hike and Organic Goat Cheese Farm. He was very knowledgeable and great to spend the day with. I enjoyed hiking to the cross early and then spending time watching the sunrise over the mountains in the distance. It could not have been more beautiful. Then a tour of the monastery. Great history and he was very knowledgable and answered the many questions we had. Then it was time to eat a county breakfast at the goat cheese farm.

Tour: Exc 01. Montserrat (6H - Trip out Barcelona) - Private Tour, Barcelona, Cataluña, Spain
Date: Jul 29/19

David is an excellent guide, we had not originally chosen David but our initial guide had to cancel and he filled in. His knowledge of Montserrat, Gaudi and the area we travelled in is excellent. He arrived promptly at our hotel and chauffeured us to both Montserrat and Colonia Guell, it was a most worthwhile excursion, made all the more interesting by the information that David gave us. We would recommend him highly to anyone wishing to visit the Barcelona area. Peter, Sineke, Vivien & Davi

David is amazing! We had not originally chosen David to be our guide, but he filled in when the guide we were booked with had to cancel. It worked out great for our family of four (teenagers 15 & 18) as we can't imagine a better day with anyone else. He was informative and kind and we felt like we were touring with a friend. Our day at Montserrat was unforgettable and we would love to return to Barcelona one day just to experience another tour with David. Thank you so much!

Our tour to Girona to see the Jewish Museum was so much more as the annual flower festival was on and the walled city of Girona was also very interesting to see. David was a great guide with great knowledge of the history of Girona and the relation with the Jews. We had an incredible lunch in Ullastret based on David's recommendation. Then finished our trip at the Dali Museum which was amazing. David is extremely personable and made our trip very enjoyable. He is a very good driver with a clean car.

Take this tour with David! He is passionate and knowledgeable about this wine country. The small family wineries are wonderful. We learned so much about Cava from the owners with this private tour. The wines were so great we sent home cases. For lunch we felt as if we were dining at a friend's home and thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Jeanne! We are all happy to know we have new ambassadors of the Catalonian wines ;) Take care

Date: Mar 14/19

David was very knowledgable, picking wineries that were exactly what we wanted. He selected a small family-owned winery and a larger production oriented winery so that we could experience both. The place he picked for lunch was perfect. He was prompt, his vehicle was pristine, and he made good use of our time.

David is amazing. He put together a perfect day for us in Penedes. We started at the Cava caves which was incredible. I was one of the many Americans who thought Cava was 'cheap' and headache inducing. Boy, was I wrong. Cava is of equal calibre and made in the exact same fashion as the best French Champagnes. We had an incredible, interactive tour where we explored the caves, learned everything about the production of Cava. We also shared a perfect lunch in town. Take this tour. David is AWESOME!

David was a great guide! He was prompt and had us in cava country in no time. Picking up the e-bikes were easy and off we went. The vineyard we visited was charming, and the tour was fun and informative! Lunch in a local restaurant was delicious and plentiful! I cannot say enough about David's tour. Not only will I recommend him to my friends, but if I find myself back in Barcelona, I will book him again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Randi for the great feedback! I had a wonderful time with your family. I'll be here when you come back for any wine related tour ;) take care.
