1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

We enjoyed cycling on tracks through fields of apples, cereals, olives, vines and rice paddies. The medieval villages were most interesting. The wine tour at La Vinyeta was well presented, informative and some nice wine too. Most enjoyable and a good amount of detail in the growing of the vines and production of wines was the tour at Celler Mas Eugene, Palamos Moli Mig Hotel was excellent, very homely and great dining.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

In Mid June the temperatures reached 36C, so plenty sunblock and liquids are essential. If unfamiliar with the GPS navigation platform, do some trial rides before starting off on the tour you don't want to hear "Rerouting Failed"

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The local people benefited from our hotel stays and use of public transport to and from the tour. 2 wineries, Anexovies Soles, and lunch stop restaurants, benefited from our visited. By cycling through the area we did minimal environmental harm.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

The vacation was good. We would have benefited by some more information on the RidewithGPS. The system was good but it took us a day to fathom out the error tones. It also gave the warning" Rerouting" if one took a wrong turn. However we never found Rerouting to be successful, frequently hearing" Rerouting failed". We thought the trip was overpriced. Having added up the hotel accommodation, 3 dinners,bike hire, luggage transfers,agency fee to Responsible Travel admin charge and an element of profit there was a more than expected difference in what we paid and what we actually received.

review 3 Sep 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Getting to know catalan culture, from ancient ruins over medieval villages to seaside resorts, from tapas over olive oil to wine and beer

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Look up the weather forecast. Don't worry too much about your fitness, 30-40km isn't a lot, and it's almost flat terrain.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We definitely gave the local wine industry a good boost ;) Joking aside, cycling is obviously better for the environment than taking a car.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

I really enjoyed the trip, the tour guide was awesome, the hotels very good. Excellent.
