We had an amazing time touring around the Priorat and tasting wines and olive oils.  You were a delightful guide - laid back, great sense of humor and very knowledgeable!  Everything was so enjoyable and we count this experience to be one of the top highlights of our recent trip.  Thanks again for taking the time to show us around.

Thank you again for a the wonderful tour of the Priorat region. What a special place with so many delicious wines. We made it to the airport in plenty of time thanks to your great directions. T.H, June, 2013

Posted on John Radford's website:- We were expertly hosted by Rachel Ritchie, who is English but has lived in these parts for many years, and acts as a tourist guide for visitors - she appears to know the region, and everyone in it, like the back of her hand.

Thank you so much  to everyone who offers feedback

We wanted to thank you and Gerard for probably the best tour we have ever had. Gerard was great company for the day, he was very well informed, we found his connections to the olive oil trade and the wine business compelling, as far as we can see we hit all the right spots in Priorat: we found that Priorat was a small magic kingdom, so cut off from the nearby world yet very close by and accessible. We look forward to visiting again. J&J McI, October, 2013

Just wanted to let you know we made it safely without problems to Barcelona. ... Thank you again for arranging such a wonderful couple of days. We really enjoyed everything we did and appreciate the time you took to make it happen. Hope we can visit again in the future. Best, HM June, 2013
