We rented good regular bikes with El Moli, their rental location is excellent: next to la estación de tren / train station of Vilafranca de Penèdes. From there you can take any bike route past the wine fields.

Hello, I was a bit confused on the website about their pricing. It seems that the tour you took would have been the 125 euro p.p. which includes everything that you mentioned. Is that correct? The section below mentions a supplement for lunch, so I was not sure if that was included. Are the tasting fees included as well?
