We had a perfect day. The guides were very informative. I just wish the bus from Montserrat could have stayed even 15 minutes longer so we were not so stressed getting out of the church after the boys choir sang. They sing at 1 pm in a very crowded church, I would have like some time to visit the gift shop and WC before finding the bus.
We had the same tour guide (Fernando) for both tours. He was very informative and entertaining. Definitely would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Barcelona area.
Beautiful scenery in Montserrat. The tour guide for the artistic portion was top-notch, very informative, funny, and pleasant.
We oringanialy book a full day trip for a Monday, not knowing that all shops are closed on Sundays so we went to tour operator and they were able to move our afternoon tour on Monday to Sunday, it was great, beautiful places to see.

What a beautiful trip. We enjoyed seeing the countryside and the magnificent monastery. The rock formations were quite impressive. A trip well worth taking. The Artistic Barcelona portion was amazing We loved seeing some of Gaudi's architectural wonders. Our guides were full of information and very interesting.

We enjoyed every minute of these well orchestrated tours. By going to Montserrat we were able to see some of the countryside around Barcelona. The boy's chior was singing the day we were there - a real treat. We were back in time for lunch but the time available before the afternoon tour began was pretty tight so you have to move quickly. The afternoon tour in the city hit the highlights. Having only one day in Barcelona, we feel we saw the highlights with well qualified guides who shared relevant information. Time for shopping was limited but that wasn't our focus. Julia Travel has this tour well organized which meant a great day for us.

Amazing trip! Half a day is not nearly long enough to spend at Montserrat. A must see in Spain.

No trip to Barcelona would be complete without seeing Montserrat. Ensure you go when the boys' choir is singing in the Basilica!

The trip was beautiful. My only complaint was that it was too short! I really wanted more time in Montserrat.

Really enjoyed the tour, comfortable coach and are really friendly and helpful.
It was great time and the tour guide was amazing
Only the time was short
The tour was nice but make sure you do not loose your guide. We did and took a bus back to our hotel our bad. The Gaudi tour was very informative
This was a long day, but a really interesting one. The visit to Montserrat was lovely, but we felt that we had more than enough free time there - after queuing to see the Black Virgin there really wasn't much else to fill the rest of the 2 1/2 hours. The afternoon was far more interesting, and gave us a really good insight into Gaudi and his genius.
Montserrat is a lovely place and this deal enabled us to get straight there cutting travel time on a public transport.
The Gaudi tour was amazing!!! A must see by everyone. Our tour guide was so informative and interactive. Really good!
We had terrible weather in Monserrat which was a shame as it impacted the views but was a very quaint little town with an interesting history. The cathedral was one of the best I've seen in Spain. The Gaudi tour was a great teaser to the real Barcelona- having a guide meant you could really appreciate what you were seeing (I know I wouldn't have had a clue without Anna's excellent explanations). Both tours went super quickly though, if you can get a tour with longer timeframes at each stop that would be perfect (even if it means breaking it up into 2 days).
