We enjoyed an amazing day in Montserrat and on the Cava wine tour. Our guide was wonderful and informative, and the excursion was worth every penny!
The tour was very organized, gave ample time to go around on our own (tho half day is not enough in Montserrat). Tour guide was very knowledgeable and even gave addl backgrounds on the sites and places we passed by before reaching the monastery.
This tour was fabulous. Our tour guide, Carlotta was knowledgeable and provided just the right amount of information. She also made sure that everyone was having an enjoyable time. Montserrat is incredible, the boys choir a delight, and the church at the monastery very beautiful. Truly a must see!
Great Tour. Montserrat had great views. The winery has 35 miles of tunnels with a train tour.
Amazing tour guides! The trip to Montserrat was amazing. We had more time than usual to do our own thing, but I still feel as though these tours could be improved with more upfront details.
This tour was well worth the money! We has a short tour through the Montserrat due to traffic but that wasn't our guides fault. My husband and I aren't super religious so it was just enough to admire the beauty of the Montserrat! The wine portion at Oller Del Mas was exceptional!
I opted for the full day tour, with half day at Montserrat and half day wine tasting. It was so much fun and extremely informative.
The two guides were extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. It felt a bit rushed at Montserrat, but if you only have a few days in Barcelona, this is perfect to see it and still have time for other things. The winery was amazing and full of history and the wines we tasted were fantastic.
Overall I would recommend this tour to anyone who likes to taste wine, wants to see Montserrat, and wants the headache of planning it off of their hands.
This was really a grand day out spent looking at the Gaudi Crypt absolutely beautiful, touring the small community of Colonia Guell, and then continuing on to see the Monastery at Montserrat. After spending the previous day in Barcelona, we thoroughly enjoyed seeing these additional sights, and even seeing the countryside on the way to Montserrat was enjoyable.
Loved Montserrat, but could have given the Cava tour a miss,
A great day trip from Barcelona! Our guide was fantastic, and it was a great balance between guided tours and free time to explore on our own. Montserrat was stunning, and Cordonieu was beautiful (and the cava was delicious!). Highly recommend!
It was a great experiance. Not only the guide but also members of the tour was very freindly. Montserrat view was very beautiful and Cava was great too!
Robert was an entertaining tour guide and very informative. There was flexible time at Montserrat which was nice so that we could do as we wish go on different hikes, shop, etc.. The cava tour was fantastic. We had Gemma as our tour guide and she was absolutely lovely. I would recommend this tour for anyone who's looking for a fun day trip.
This tour was great value. The bus ride up was impressive and the big air-condioned bus very comfortable. Montserrat was amazing and the tour guide friendly and informative. He didn't rush us and there was an optional guided walk to a lookout point. We would recommend this tour to others.
Great tour if you are crunched on time and want to make the most of Barcelona and Montserrat in a day. The tour guide was great and the service was professional. Highly recommend it!
Nice small group tour, plenty of free time at Montserrat and the Cava tour was the best winery tour we have been on.
I had a fantastic time on this tour. Our tour guide was wonderful, better english vocabulary than me Nicely done, Irene! and was very knowledgable. Even in the rain we saw Montserrat, had time to sample local cheese and candies and buy some and then head out to the winery. I learned every step of the wine making process and had lovely tapas paired with the three wines we tasted. I would recommend this for any travelers to Barcelona, but beware - there is walking involved, a hill to Montserrat and a large staircase. There are stairs at the winery as well, to get to the tasting room. We travelled in a comfortable, small bus and got a good history of Barcelona on the way to Montserrat. The pick up and drop off location is easy to find and leaves you in a nice area for shopping. Bring layers for the weather - you can always leave them on the locked bus. Enjoy!
Victor our guide was highly entertaining. You could tell he loved his job and cared about the process.... Or maybe that was the wine. Views from the montserrat were beautiful. Would recommend the full day tour to spend more time at the top. Amazing way to spend a special anniversary.
The tour was great. Montserrat is a one-of-kind place and well worth visiting. Then the winery tour of Pares Balta was one of the best we have ever experienced. It's organic, and the winery rep really explained the entire process while taking us to the field, cellar, and a really nice
Loved the tour!! Our guide Carlotta gave us insider tips and great directions about what to see and where to hike at Montserrat. The visit was truly special from hiking the art lined Santa Cova trail to one on one time with la Moreneta to hearing the boys' choir, which brought us to tears.
Jordi was an excellent guide and Montserrat is really something that you must see. Codorniu was beautiful and the caves below were very cool. I wish we could have spent more time in the tasting room after. Would have been happy to try a few more Cavas and have a bite even if it was out of pocket.
This is a great tour and well worth the money. You will save about 30 off of what you would pay booking it through a cruise line. Our tour guide, Josef, was incredible. He really has a passion for what he does and for his homeland. One of the first things he did when we boarded the van was to ask us what are the most important things we want to see. We were able to see all of Gaudi's major work. Sagrada Familia was stunning! Pictures can not do justice. Montserrat is a must see. We were able to go into the cathedral and it is beautiful. 7 to 8 hours that the tour lasts is not long enough to go into all of the buildings we saw, so you have to make a choice in what you to see in the time you have. We even had a little time at the end to go up to Montjuic and see the city. We didn't feel like we were running from site to site, but we did have to move through areas fairly quickly to fit in everything we had on our must see list. You will not go wrong if you decide to take this tour. We booked through Viator, and two of the places we visited Malaga and Barcelona we used Top Day Tours. I was very impressed with the level of professionalism and attention to detail. The guides were very knowledgeable, friendly and easy to understand. Josef was a great tour guide, if you have the opportunity to have him as your guide you will not go wrong.
This is a brilliant tour. Eva, our energetic, friendly and informative young guide took our small group on a great journey. Starting in the centre of Barcelona she told us the history of the city pointing out land marks on the way to Montserrat. An hour was spent here followed by a trip to a working vineyard which is a castle. Here we were told of the history, the family and shown the process of winemaking following by tapas and wine. A great way to spend 6 hours with guides who can answer anything you need to know.
This tour was fascinating and fun. David was an excellent guide and made the trip to Montserrat. I would highly recommend this tour and David!
The best tour ever!
The best tour ever, or did I already say this? Christian, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable and very passionate about his city and its rich history. The bus picked us up from the cruise port and, luckily, we did not have to pick up any more people. So, with our luggage stowed away, our tour started right away. Christian timed it so we made it to Montserrat to watch and listen to the boys choir at 1pm! This tour was an unforgettable experience and we saw a lot - La Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, Montserrat and so much more along the way. I took amazing pictures! All were in agreement that Christian was excellent. As he dropped each guest at their hotel, he pointed out other areas of interest and recommended places to eat within walking distance. This is a great and reasonable price-wise way to see Barcelona, especially if you only have one day! I want to add that we had a great driver so sorry, I forgot his name but he was very professional!
Very organized and very informative! The leader and the driver were very helpful and knowledgeable! Montserrat was beautiful and the location was unbelievable!! Worth every penny!!
