Mark was an amazing host and we had a perfect afternoon on this tour. He made sure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves. We used his recommendation to attend a local winery and it was beyond perfect! I cannot recommend Mark or this tour enough- you will have an extremely memorable and personalized trip!

I've been on the vineyard tour with Mark and I found it really interesting. Mark chose a good destination for the tour and everything was so easy, he came to pick us up and all we did was enjoy! It was a wonderful afternoon and a good way to see other parts of the region. We also got to know a bit more about Barcelona from Mark's perspective. Thank you
