We had an excellent time! Montserrat is a must see and having a guide to bring us and provided recommendations was a bonus. The Cava tour was also fabulous and the tasting even better. We had a great group and our tour guide Joseph really made it special.
We had a great time on this trip. Definitely a highlight of our time in Barcelona. Our guide Laura was fantastic and we loved both Momtserrat and the winery tour. Really great day!
Our guide Joseph was very informative，we had enough time to complete a lot of activities. The sparkling wine was also excellent. I and #39;d recommend this trip to my friends.
Plenty of time to see a lot of Monserrat, we got to take a hike and see the boys choir! The Cava tour was a little like a Disney wine ride but was definitely cool!
What a wonderful treat this was -- Montserrat was everything and more than I had heard about -- The Cava Trail tour was probably one of the best winery tours I have ever been on and the Cava was outstanding
Montserrat was amazing and the visit to the winery a great way to end the day. Tour guide, Laura, was excellent!
Our guide Anna and driver Monica were excellent. Pity the tour bus broke down.
A seriously great day out. We had a delightful young man for a guide -Arnau - who was great fun and very informative. There was just the right balance on this tour between being guided and having your own time to explore. Dont miss the museum/art gallery up at Montserrat!
Arnold was very good tour guide. Enjoyed the Cava Trail portion especially the caves.
This tour was fantastic! I would even do it again if I ever came here again. The trip out to Montserrat was wonderful. And the Cava tour was spectacular! My 17 year old daughter just loved it.
We really enjoyed this tour. Amazing sights in Montserrat, and the winery we visited was fabulous. We felt that there was a little too much time in Montserrat, and we would preferred maybe 45-60 minutes less there in order to get back to Barcelona earlier. Otherwise, we really enjoyed the tour!
We loved our trip! We were hesitant about it taking all day, but it was totally worth it! Montserrat was beautiful and had plenty to do in the time we were there and the winery tour and tasting was fun as well!

Montserrat was fantastic. Don't miss the views from top of the mountain. We took the funicular. The visit to Pares Balta was outstanding. Great guide.
We had a wonderful day. Our guide was very informative and made our tour most enjoyable.
From start to finish this tour was extremely well done with David being an excellent guide. Good value and loved the small group which made it feel much more personal. Tour was very interesting and would totally recommend it.
We had a wonderful day on the Montserrat/Cava tour. Our guide was Josep, who was full of knowledge and friendly to all of us. He went out of the way to make our 7 year old as happy as possible and he dealt with unforeseen situations, like a miles long traffic jam, very professionally.
Josep took us off the beaten path of Montserrat after the monastery to 1,000 year old chapel on another part of the mountain that no other tourists were at. We would never have known it was there had he not told us. The cava tour was excellent and Josep even managed to get our group a few extra tasting glasses! Overall, highly recommended and even moreso if you get a guide like Josep!
The Montserrat visit was excellent. We listened to Easter Sunday mass and it was a moment to remember. The winery visit was a great experience since we learned the making of Cava. The Cava was a new experience and looking forward to going back in the future.
The only negative was that the guide was very new, this was actually his first tour, so a supervisor came along and the result was that there wasn't much commentary during the drive to Montserrat or from Montserrat to the Codorniu Winery. We were given an overview when we arrived at Montserrat and then about 3 hours on our own to tour the area. I took the funicular about 10 euros up to the summit and then hiked further to a small chapel high on the hillside. The views on both sides of the summit are breathtaking. There is a very informative display at the funicular terminal about the geological and cultural history of Monserrat, along with information about native plants and wildlife. Back down the mountain in time to hear the boys' choir, and so glad I did that there was a guest choir of young girls whose singing was quite beautiful and the main attraction, the resident boys' choir, was remarkable. A simple lunch on the terrace on a beautiful afternoon overlooking the valley was very memorable. Then the tour of Codorniu Winery was one of the best winery tours I've had and I've done dozens! The resident guide had many years experience at that winery in different fields of work and was very knowledgeable and charming. This family has owned the land for over 500 years and there are lots of winemaking tools from past centuries to see up close. The tour in the caves deep underground was outstanding and we took a little train to see a small portion of the 35 km of hand carved tunnels. During the tasting I learned a lot about Cava and Codorniu is now my new favourite sparkling wine!
This was a lovely day with a small tour group. The guide David was wonderful, very funny and knowledgeable. He was very enthusiastic about all the places we visited and full of information. It was well worth the long drive.
David the guide was great! He was very knowledgeable and gave us great tips!
Although the weather was not great, our tour guide David did has best to still make it an enjoyable day tour. I was thoroughly impressed by his knowledge of the history of the Catalonia region and enthusiasm about his job. Bravo! I would definitely suggest this tour to anyone with an interest in art, Christianity, and wine.
Really enjoyed this tour to Montserrat - lots to do and see. Then off to the winery where we had a great tour and tasting.
Unfortunately the morning started off very cold and raining. However, our guide David from Experience Catalunya was awesome! He made it fun, interesting and he was extremely knowledgeable.
