Beautiful Montserrat. We have been there before, but never went up to the top of the mountain, never experienced the cable car or the train. This time, we tried everything. We love it. Beautiful pieces of art on those mountains. My camera didn't stop clicking all over. I like the guide's explanation, and then we were free to go around, visited the Black Madonna, went up to the top of the mountain, had lunch, and came back down to the museum. The boys choir singing was terrific. That was something I didn't want to miss. The morning tour to Colonia Guell was also great. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
Absolutely a not to be missed tour. Tour guide (Maribel) was very special and extremely knowledgable. A tour that we will never forget, so much to see and do!!!
Colonia Guell and the Gaudi Crypt were a very interesting stop. After visiting Parc Guell and the Sagrada Family in Barcelona the day before, we understood more the information on the creation of the Colonia and could appreciate the Gaudi style.
Monserrat was an unexpected treat and listening the the Monserrat Choir boys in the church was superb. Worth the trip.
Price was reasonable, bus was comfortable, and the guide was very informative and fluent in English (y Espanol, tambien). The bus stayed on a good schedule. Gaudi Crypt is a great Antoni Gaudi specimen. Montserrat and views from there up the St. Joan funicular were awe inspiring.
Fabulous tour - awesome sites, great guide... Best tour to do in Barcelona.
Could have skipped the Colonia Guell and spent more time in Montserrat. Other than that, we had a great time. The Boys Choir in the Montserrat Basilica is fantastic.
We booked this tour based on reviews, which proved to be 100% accurate. The meeting location was easy to find, the bus was roomy and comfortable and the overall tour was excellent. The tour guide was informative and moved along swiftly - giving everyone ample time for photos. It was especially nice when we arrived at the Montserrat - it was a brief guide to get us started and then we were able to venture off on our own. This is absolutely a 'must see and do' when in Barcelona. Viator has excellent customer service - I liked that we received reminders to 'print our prepaid vouchers'...not to mention it was one less excursion that had to be paid in Euros on the day of the event.
Absolutely magnificent. A place that everyone should visit ..... Wonderful memories. Booking online was easy, efficient and hassle free.

this was wourth seeing and the trip was great. the bus and train were clean and very well run. The guide was very knowledgeable.
excellent day trip out of Barcelona. Views and information shared was great
A brilliant day and an excellent guide. There was sufficient time to do most things. Well worth doing!
Colonia Guell is cool but Montserrat makes it all worth it. Montserrat was amazing! Go up on top of the mountain right away. I opted to leave the guide as they went to the basilica and went up to the top of the mountain. This gave me just enough time to see the basilica, museum, liquor tasting and eat. I was able to relax up on the top of the mountain and during my meal, but other than that you need to move kind of fast. He will offer a deal for museum entry, liquor tasting and lunch for 19 Euro. Do it! The lunch is amazing cause u get so much food and makes the deal worth it on its on. This day trip was amazing!
This was my first tour in Barcelona. Hector an excellent tour guide and very considerate with every one on the tour. The line to the original statue of Monserrat takes about 2 hrs. I took the walk to the cave. The only thing that I would add to you is that the "walk" to the cave of the Virgin Moserrat could be considered a "hike". It is short but uphill with a stairway and rocky surface.
Colonia Guell and Gaudi Crypt was excellent!
Intriguing, stunning, amazing. just go on this tour and you will see what I mean. Wonderful tour guide and an unforgettable experience - do it!
This was our favourite day in Barcelona. The majestic scenery at Monserrat is amazing, and it was very educational to see some of Gaudi's works. If you are in Barcelona, definitely do this tour - very well worth it!
Relaxed, beautiful and informative. A Great tour and we were back in Barcelona by 4.45 pm
A great trip to the wonderful mountain of Montserrat, Colonia Guell and Gaudi Crypt. The guide is excellent - very attentive and provided very informative knowledge of each site. A very worthwhile visit not to miss - especially one loves the view of a beautiful mountain and Gaudi. If the weather is good, the mountain itself worths a whole day to go around.
It was a agreat trip, not too stressful. Colonia Guell was pretty nice with the unfinished church of Guadi. We were in Monserrat around lunch and it was a pretty amazing site. We were just in time for the choir and were able to see the black madonna for just lining up 5 minutes. Pretty Lucky! We had lots of time in monserrat and our tour guide carlos was very knowledgable. The bus is extremely huge with just around 20 passengers. Good tour considereing its kinda hard to go to colonia guell. Hitting 2 birds with one stone :)
This place is an awesome site. The tour was great. We found the bus easily and the company is really good. A must see. Just bring light lunch since it's a long day.
The guide was excellent and made sure everyone knew how to see the most for the time allowed. I would reccomend this tour.
This was great and enjoyed both. Our guide Marc was really great also. The trip was a success thanks for him and our driver and a fun stopover at Bacardi was a treat. Worth the price and took the stress from us to sit back and enjoy.
A day with both locations being incredible and very different sights to see. Great guide and well worth the price.
