The tour guide was very nice and informative. We only got to see Montserrat because of time restraints, but I understood that. I would recommend Viator to others for tours.
We really enjoyed the tour. It was great to see the countryside on our way - so beautiful! Our tour guide was terrific and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Montserrat. It is so worth seeing! Thank-you.
Two amazing spots to visit in Barcelona. Friendly and capable guide comfortable ride to Montserrat.
Montserrat and the rail rack ride were great. Well worth seeing the basilica and surround art works. The highlight of the tour for me, though, was seeing Gaudi's crypt currently used as a church. Beautiful and inspiring. Definitely recommend. .
Love this tour. Samantha the tour girl was very nice and knowledgeable, The meting point is just next to the Palau of the Music, very convenience for us because we were staying at the Renassance just like 8 minutes from the hotel. The views in Monserrat are amazing.The church is beautiful and the Black Madonna. In her little niche overwhelming. We did Montserrat one day and Sagrada Familia the other day very impress with Viator. Reliable and professional people that you can tell that enjoy what they do. We bought some things at a little market just before the entrance some grape tomatoes and wine and cheese and enjoy our little picnic lunch in a designated area with clean picnic bench the view transport you .
Sagrada Familia is a must if you go to Barcelona and Monserrat is a bonus what a nice combination. It was a little tour just 7 perfect, pleanty of time to buy some momentos and to enjoy the view. Thanks Viator for making our vacation a perfect and memorable one. Itzel and John.
Very organized and we like the small grouponly 8 people. How we wish we could have stayed longer. Will come back for sure in Montserrat.
The overall trip experience was enjoyable. It's quite an experience and fun taking the almost vertical train up to the very top of the mountain. The only heads up is that lunch takes place at Montserrat and the options are very limited as there are only a couple cafes up there.
Our tour of Montserrat was fantastic - highly recommend this to anyone and everyone! Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly, providing all of the background information necessary to make this an enjoyable and educational trip. The weather was gorgeous, which I understand is not always the case. We could see blue skies for miles and miles. The late afternoon tour of Park Guell and other Gaudi sites was also enjoyable, but pretty tiring after a long tour at Montserrat. The Gaudi work is magnificent and well worth the effort to visit.
We had a great guide and an excellent experience! Loved Montserrat! Be sure and make it part of your Barcelona tour!!
Montserrat has great views, but unfortunately you can't predict the weather and it was foggy all day with limited views of the mountains. However, it was still a great experience and our tour guide, Javier, was very gracious and kind. I wish we had maybe at least one more hour here to do more of the activities, but overall it is a nice place to visit! Thank you!!!
Our 1/2-day trip to Montserrat was very memorable and our tour guide David was awesome! He was informative, funny and made the trip really special. We went to La Sagrada Familia on our own the day before our tour and were completely bowled over by the beauty and grandeur of the building . . . a real treat to be able to see this in person - BOTH activities are highly recommended!
This was a great tour... Not a lot of tourist around which was lovely! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and I really feel like I got the most from this experience. Absolutely loved visiting Montserrat, what a beautiful place away from all the bustle of the city!
Montserrat is simply amazing! Highly recommend it as the views are just beautiful. I would also recommend taking the time to see the Saint Mary inside the Cathedral, stunning.
Marta was the best part of our trip to Barcelona. Her tour was the first day of our 5-day visit, and she arrived promptly at our hotel. Her trusty driver Carlos was waiting outside with a new, comfortable van. The rest of the guests were collected in a similarly efficient manner, and we were off. The overview of she offered of Barcelona was illustrated with stops along the was at some of the major landmarks. Then, off to Montserrat.
Time flew by during the drive as Marta explained the history and geography of Catalonia, and no sooner did we arrive then she offered the highlights of the monastery. We were fortunate to catch the daily recital offered by the boys choir.
Upon our return to Barcelona, a stop at Sagrada Familia allowed Marta to explain the history and beginnings of the church project. I was especially impressed how she commandeered a display model in a nearby gift shop to elaborate on the design and construction of the church. We are glad we booked this Barcelona day tour through Viator and recommend it to others looking for a true slice of Catalonia. w
We lucked out with a perfect weather day - I liked the free time we had to ourselves at Montserrat to hike and hear the boys choir - great recommendation from tour guide to get to the church early for that! The cava tour was also enjoyable and great opportunity to see a bit of the countryside.
A must see for anyone traveling to Barcelona. We really enjoyed the combination of Montserrat and then a tour of Codorniu vineyard. Montserrat was more like a pilgrimage for us, the experience was just so beautiful. The tour of the Codorniu vineyard was one of the most extensive tours I have ever had of a vineyard. It was a lot of fun to ride on the trains and sample the cava.
After a brisk walk to the minibus, we quickly set off for Montserrat in the thick of the morning rush hour, but fortunatey we were going against the traffic flow and we made good time. Wonderful time up in Montserrat with the clouds playing hide and seek with the towering boulders that rose above us. We took thhe funicular to the top extra cost, but well worth it and later went in to hear the Boys choir sing prayers at 1pm. Sadly and nothing to do with the tour some people seem to have forgotten their basic manners even inside a church. Later onto Le Cordonui, and a terrific tour by train of their cellars and wine tasting. Long journey back into Barcelona due to traffic but the Guide/Driver kept us amused with many tales of his lifes experiences, Totally recommended!
Highly recommend wish we had more time at Montserrat
I loved the Montserrat area. BEAUTIFUL! I also loved seeing the Gaudi designed church.
Excellent tours! Montserrat is a must!
Great trip to Montserrat. Laura was a peach of a guide. Waiting to here from her...I have the information she and I discussed. Roger Moore
excellent tour and good to get out of the city and see some of the countryside. Mountains were very spectacular. The Monastery at Montserrat is worth seeing and our tour guide took us in to see the statue of the Black Madonna. We also went on the funicular ride up to St Joan for fantastic views. Would have been good to hear the boys Choir at Montserrat, but they were on school holidays when we were there.

The tour staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and easy-going. We did the half-day tour of Montserrat and wine tour. The views from Montserrat are spectacular. It is understandable that there is a Benedictine monastery there. The wine tour was informative and the tasting itself was enjoyable. The tapas was quite tasty. Irene did a great job!
Everything was done very professionally. The tour itself went off without a hitch and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Montserrat itself is well worth visiting, especially if you have been to Barcelona before, as we had.
tour was right on time picking us up and returning us to our hotel within the advertised time frames
great driver navigating the city
awesome tour guide - very informative, humorous and helpful, had great knowledge of and passion for her city and Catalonia
covered all of the sights we hoped to see - did a particularly great job of orienting us to Montserrat and making sure we had a good experience there - which we did!
