What You Can Expect

Barcelona and Montserrat Tour with Skip-the-Line Park Güell Entry and Hotel or Port Pickup

See La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona!

Climb aboard your air-conditioned minivan at your Barcelona hotel or cruise port and ascend the incline of Montjuic, a 755-foot (230-meter) hill that affords spectacular views of the city harbor. Stop to explore the Anella Olímpica and enjoy the panoramic vistas from its hilltop perch as you venture to Montjuic Castle, a stolid structure with ancient origins. 

Next, visit one of the city’s most spectacular structures; famed for its Gothic grandeur and architectural eccentricity, La Sagrada Familia is hailed as Antoni Gaudi’s modernist masterpiece. Capture fabulous photographs outside then admire the exterior of Casa Batlló.
Stroll the sophisticated shopping strip of Passeig de Gracia and marvel at landmarks such as Casa Amataller and Casa Morera before heading to Gaudi’s Park Güell. Sail past the long lines at the crowded entrance then follow your guide on an exploration of one of the world’s most impressive public spaces.

Sample some sublime Spanish specialties in a local restaurant (own expense) then return to your minibus to enjoy the scenic journey to Montserrat, the rugged mountain that forms the centerpiece of Spain’s first national park. Wander past fascinating flora and fauna then immerse yourself in the religious splendor of Santa Maria de Montserrat, a beautiful Benedictine abbey home to the Black Virgin and the oldest children’s choir in Europe. 

Relax during the return journey back to your Barcelona hotel or cruise port, where the tour concludes.

This was a very interesting tour with an excellent tour guide, Marta.
We were picked up at the port in a small van with a few other people which was what we wanted
since we were staying in Barcelona for a few days.
Marta presented a very educational and informative tour. We enjoyed seeing the beautiful city with
all the Gaudi art and the trip to Montserrat.

This tour exceeded our expectations and provided us with not only the details of Montserrat Abbey and Park Guell but with the culture and overview of the city of Barcelona and history of the area. Our tour guide Nico was well versed on the history, locations, and inter-relations of the community and the people and provide items of details not normally recieved during a tour of this type. The small group setup made for a great tour.
