A must do when in Madrid. The scenery and views are breathtaking. Montserrat is something like I've never seen before.
Excellent excursion and an excellent tour guide. Would recommend this to everyone!
Monserrat was awesome. I really wasn't sure what to expect but this trip exceeded all my expectations. Do not miss this tour!!!
It was a great trip wish it was longer, there's so much to see and explore and Montserrat.

This was a beautiful tour !! Our tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and very personable. She pointed out the rich history of the area, why it was named Montserrat and the story of the Virgin of Montserrat. The trip up and back was comfortable and the views were spectacular. The time available to visit the Monastery and the surrounding area worked out well for us and tasting of the four liquors was an added plus. I would highly recommend this tour.
This was a good tour. Tour guide, Rosa, was knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed very much.
Large sized bus with a large Japanese group for fought for seats then yelled to each other across many rows whilst the Guide was talking was not a great start to this day no more large group tours for me!
En route, our guide, Biguel, gave great commentary on much about Spain today eg finance, business and the royal family really good information. Ascending the mountain to the Monastery provided amazing views if not heart stopping drops off roadside!
Definitely a spiritual feeling to Montserratt. Left on our own for 2 hrs after our guide spent a little time explaining history of the site and the Black Madonna one can walk down to view her statue very steep, I chose not to, I lit a candle and viewed a short film inside the Museum very interesting and a must the choir was delightful and the liquor 4 of them all made at the monastery tasting included in our ticket yummy. Gift shop is expensive but profits go back into the Monastery. This very worthwhile half day tour had us back in the city by 2:30.
For me half a day was not enough since I wanted time to go to the top of the mountain on the funicular and explore the cave. This is a not to be missed trip. If your time is limited then do the 1/2 day trip. If you really want to explore the monastery, listen to the choir, enjoy a nice meal, maybe hike, ride the funicular and wait in line to view the Black Madonna, then book the all day tour. 5 star either way.
Whole tour well run - would of liked more time to do the cog railway
Very we'll organized. Well worth the money! Great tour guide and bus was very clean and comfortable.
My favorite place to visit along with Ronda. The scenery here is spectacular. Not visiting Montserrat while being in Barcelona is like going to Granada and not visiting the Alhambra. Make sure you add it to your schedule you will understand why once you see it. Fernando was our tour guide and he was great.
We were able to do everything we thought was included. The audiovisual movie, the liquer tasting, the boy choir and the cathedral were everything and more.
Brilliant, the tour guide was helpful and we had a long time there, 10 out of 10!
The trip up there has some breathtaking views and the monastery itself is classically beautiful. It was an amazing day. You'd be sorry to miss this. Tour guide was helpful and bus was comfortable.
Great tour and we liked the amount of time we were allowed to spend on our own. Only problem was a loud, clanking noise on the bus that made it quite difficult to hear our guide.
Our trip was wonderful!! It was nice of you to arrange for the most beautiful weather, too. Caroline, our guide, gave us a tremendous amount of information about Montserrat and the Monastery. It was a fantastic time.
This was not on our original plans for our Barcelona visit. We are so glad we found this treasure! Transportation and guide was excellent and most enjoyable. Beautifully set in the mountains north of Barcelona, this Basilica is exquisite. Our favorite part of the tour was a visit to the art museum next to the plaza. So many wonderful paintings and sculptures by famous artists.
