  • The Olive Oil Genuine Experience was a great addition to our time in Barcelona, providing a day immersed in the agriculture, geography and history of the area. Driving through the olive tree groves, seeing the processing of the olive oil, and sampling different kinds of olive oil gave us the grove-to-table experience. The husband/wife owners of the groves and mill were enthusiastic and helpful in their explanations, with Marta translating. Visiting the medieval village of Siurana was like going back centuries in history and provided a beautiful setting for watching the sun set. Wed highly recommend the tour and Marta.

  • This tour was more incredible than I can put into a 300 character review. Absolutely the highlight of our European holiday. If you only book one you make it THIS one! I have taken away so much knowledge, inspiration, passion and memories from this once in a life time experience. A huge Thankyou
