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!

Leave your central Barcelona hotel (or cruise port) by air-conditioned minibus and travel up Montjuic – Barcelona’s famous 755-foot (230-meter) hill – while enjoying breathtaking views of the city harbor. Located at the hill’s peak is Anella Olímpica, where the 1992 Olympic Games were held. After stopping to explore, continue to Montjuic Castle for photos and then head back down the hill into town.

Barcelona is famous for its links to Antoni Gaudi – Spain’s celebrated Modernist architect – and the city is scattered with his highly acclaimed works. Stop outside for a panoramic visit to one of his more extraordinary creations -- the still-unfinished La Sagrada Familia cathedral -- and then pose for photos outside Casa Batlló with its eye-catching exterior.

Travel along the glitzy shopping strip of Passeig de Gracia, passing other architectural sites of interest like Casa Amataller and Casa Morera, and then head to Gaudi’s Park Güell. Make your way past the long entrance lines with your skip-the-line ticket and then spend some time exploring with your guide. Easily one of the most impressive public spaces in the world, the gardens are said to encapsulate Gaudi’s creative genius with an abundance of colorful mosaics and intriguing gatehouses.

After a break for lunch (own expense), hop back on board your minibus and travel west to Montserrat, the craggy mountain in the middle of Spain’s first national park. Walk through the park and learn about the area’s history, and head inside Santa Maria de Montserrat, the beautiful Benedictine abbey and basilica where thousands of Christian pilgrims have journeyed over the centuries. Learn about the Virgin of Montserrat (known as the Black Virgin) and take in incredible views toward Barcelona. If you’re lucky, you may catch a performance by La Escalonia – the oldest children’s choir in Europe – who performs regularly here.

Return to Barcelona by minibus, and finish your tour back at your central hotel or cruise port in the early evening.

This tour was excellent - our tour guides Laila and Mario our driver were so knowledgeable, fun, helpful and great at meeting the needs and interests of our whole group. They were excellent hosts. Our tour guides were from Catalunya which was great, and Laila was an official guide - which means that they have taken a number of tests regarding the history of the locations. Montserrat was beautiful, we were there in time to see the boys choir, which they're pretty famous for. Park Gūell was also really nice, but very crowded - this had nothing to do with the tour obviously. The tour took the full day, but it went at a good pace, not too rushed or slow. Would highly recommend this tour and our lovely guides!!!
