Great tour guide and wonderful site to visit. Be prepared to get to the meeting place on time though. Our iphone gave us bad location info when using the map feature...so we ended up arriving at 9:20 vs 9:15 and the bus almost left us behind.
Not a lot of exploring time, especially since there were so many people there, but excellent experience!
Great tour! Our tour guide Eva was extremely knowledgeable with wonderful tips of information all throughout the tour. Monserrat is absolutely stunning! Want to go back!
The abbey was really interesting and our guide really pleasant and upbeat!
Get tour guide with a good sense of humor. Really enjoyed this tour.
The tour was very organized, gave ample time to go around on our own (tho half day is not enough in Montserrat). Tour guide was very knowledgeable and even gave addl backgrounds on the sites and places we passed by before reaching the monastery.
Better than we expected. Enjoyed having enough time to hear the boys choir. Guide was extremely well
informed on the history of the area.
This is a must see if you are in Barcelona. Outside from Barcelona city may be an hour and half drive. the roads are very scary, will get your nerves if you have never traveled in hills. The monastery the abnormal shaped rocky mountains, the church, the viewpoint with crush and of course black virgin. There is also a museum if arts including Picasso and some other painters, you can visit. Make sure you have comfortable shoes and dress if you want to walk to the viewpoint to see breathtaking view of the mountains and Barcelona city. The guide was very informative as well as the tour company. We enjoyed our time here. Also carry some cash if you want to enjoy some local cheese and honey there.
Such a gorgeous site! From the serene drive from central Barcelona to the Basilica and back was well worth every minute. The view is breathtaking from the grounds and the Basilica itself is absolutely gorgeous. The Black Madonna is well worth the wait. Would highly recommend this day trip!

Stunning historic spiritual humbling. The boys choir heavenly and the Madonna to see close was a lifetime experience. Lovely people to help. Julia's organized and our guide knowledgable. Not enough time only complaint
Excellent! My tour was in both English and German - very interesting. We went high up into the mountains, and during our ride, our tour guide was absolutely excellent. She was knowledgable and made it fun! Got to hear the boy's choir and see the beautiful basilica. Amazing.
