This is a must have tour when visiting Barcelona. It was made enjoyable by our guide Geordie (George). Montserrat is really interesting and La Sagrada Famillia is absolutely breathtaking.
This trip was very good. The Monastery and the mountains surrounding it were magnificent. The funnicular ride up to St John was not enjoyable as we had to stand all the way and view was worthless. The view at the top was spectacular.
Jordi the guide and driver was very informative and polite.
The office were very bad and wanted us to wait more than an hour before letting us go to La Sagrada Familia. The office philosophy was that the "customer is always wrong ! "
But it was finally sorted out due to my insistence and after I told them that I have booked and taken tens of tours with Viator.
Absolutely fantastic views and beautiful church, we perhaps should have done the full day tour so that we could have done a lot more walking around the area. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable, the second tour of our holiday.
The sights were fantastic. More time would have been better. Once we got there it was a little rushed. Beautiful monastery and surroundings.
This combination was quite fun and an efficient way to see two wonderful sites. Our guide to Montserrat was personable and well-versed on the history and opportunities.
Whether you take a tour or the train on your own, make sure you go to Montserrat. Breathtaking views and our guide, Anna, was wonderful. Definitely take the cable car up and walk down if able. Do not bother to go to La Sagrada Familia WITHOUT a skip the line ticket! You will wait hours.
It was a great tour to Montserrat. Our guide was very knowledgeable and really made it a fun and enjoyable day. I have been traveling now for around 6 weeks and every tour we have booked with viator has been great
Our guide Julia was wonderful. Full of detailed information. This was a very personalized trip. Jus mt husband, me and another couple. Montserrat was just beautiful. I could have used more time to explore thae walks and the top if the mountain, but we chose a half day visit. Skip the line at Sagrada Familia was easy. The church is not to be missed.
Our driver was fabulous. He gave us an informative drive there and was very informative. He was also kind enough to escort us to the correct area for our tour of Sagrada Familia
Our guide and driver Veronica was knowledgeable and very personable. Our time at Montserrat was interesting. We were dropped off right in front of Sagrada Familia and the process of getting our Skip-the-line tickets was easy. We would recommend this tour and company!
Monsterrat was AMAZING! And the skip line pass made it really easy for La Familia. The tour company there was easy to find and The guides were exceptional and the most educated. I booked another tour with them while in Barcelona.
11 June 2014 our half day trip to Montserrat was truly amazing. The journey there was interesting driving through outer suburbs of Barcelona and finally into the rural region which has so much history, seeing the ancient remains made us realise just how old this region is....beautiful countryside. Then from a distance we saw the majestic mountain range which we had to drive up, and finally we reached Montserrat! We arrived mid afternoon which was a good time because all of the big tourist buses where about to leave which meant a relaxing tourist-free time to explore and take in the amazing atmosphere. Our guide Jordi was fantastic. He was very informative during the trip and while at Montserrat, and he left us roam free for couple of hours to do our own thing. He introduced us to the local market people who were from the region, selling their locally-produced cheese, honey, nuts and many other yummy morsels to tempt us with. We bought a goats milk cheese in-cased with rosemary which was delicious. They love using herbs in their cheese making. The piece lasted a few days, along with a few glassed of good spanish wine. Mind you, all their wine is very very good, you can buy a bottle for around Eur4 - 5 at the supermarket and its fantastic, plus usually organic as they don't use pesticides of there.
I took a 20min walk to the cross, and my friend spent her free time in the basilica and viewed the black Madonna. There is something for everyone. The view is the most majestic I've seen in a long time, and the feeling you get while you are there, even for me who is not religious at all did get a sense of being in a special place.
Jordi and the tour company office were very helpful and I would highly recommend them.
Carolyn Jackson and Liz Mahon.
The tour is really something! It teaches so many things about Catalans.I must say that our guide was so knowledgeable and very kind and we (seven of us) learnt much about Catalonia and Montserrat,
I suggest this tour to anybody who is going to visit Barcelona!
We had plenty of time to see what we wanted at Montserrat and La Sagrada Familia was great to be able to skip the line!
