We were a group of 5 on a hen party, and had a super time!
We were picked up promptly from a central location, the main office and tour guide Simon managed to organise a surprise cake for the bride to be 5 min before we left for the tour!
We did the afternoon tour to Oller de Mas winery - 3 wines, explained well, with cheeses and of course our lovely cake!
This was a fantastic tour!!! I went with a friend and we both highly recommend it for anyone who has half a day to spare. Clara was an exceptional guide both through the Montserrat portion of the tour, and through the tasting and making aspects of the wine. She was incredibly involved, friendly, and knowledgeable. You get to taste three high quality wines paired with tapas. It is a very relaxed day, but you get to see and learn a lot at the same time.
Was awesome! Would recommend to anyone.
Had Irene as a tour guide and she was great.
Enjoyed the tour and the guides were good and very knowledgable as usual would have liked more wine and food but that is my usual complaint except when I am home.......
Everything was truly amazing from the tour of Montserrat to tasting the wines at a 1000 year old wine in a 10th century castle. A must do during your visit to Barcelona.
Exceptional! We had the good fortune of having two guides on this trip, Victor and Francesc, who were were both passionate about Barcelona-area history and wine making and wine tasting. These two are the best and we would highly recommend this tour. What a treat!
The tour was absolutely amazing! Victor and Simon were knowledgeable and fun. Great experience!
After being in Barcelona for 2 weeks, we booked this tour as a last minute thing. We are so glad we did because our tour guide Josep was the most amazing tour guide we have ever come across. His knowledge and passion was absolutely incredible and we wished we could have had him for our entire visit. He also gave us some great restaurant recomendations for our final few days and they are already turning into gems. Thank you Josep!
Great tour! Our guide Simon was very knowledgeable and kept our small group very informed during the entire tour! The winery that we visited was outstanding, and the tapas pared perfect!
I would take this tour again...
Everything was beyond our expectations. Our tour guide was very informative and patient, making sure everyone had ample time for questions and viewing. The day, countryside and winery's were perfect. Thanks for offering this great trip.

The tour staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and easy-going. We did the half-day tour of Montserrat and wine tour. The views from Montserrat are spectacular. It is understandable that there is a Benedictine monastery there. The wine tour was informative and the tasting itself was enjoyable. The tapas was quite tasty. Irene did a great job!
Lorenzo was amazing and the tour was just right. I've read the reviews suggesting longer stays in Montserrat, which I would also suggest if you want to truly focus a whole day experiencing the monastery and surrounding grounds, which includes several long hikes.
The abbreviated monastery tour was enough for me to have a sense of the majesty and history of the place, and to experience the history of the surrounding lands, including a working winery on the lands of a feudal-times castle. Wine tasting was a nice end to a beautiful day.
We had an awesome time on this tour! It was one of the main contributors to us loving Barcelona as much as we did. Our tour guide, Oriol, was very knowledgeable both about Montserrat as well as the winery and wine-tasting. Highly recommended!
Excellent tour. Very professionally delivered. Good value too. Stunning scenery all around Montserrat. The Vineyard trip was both educational and thoroughly enjoyable. There were three decent samples of wine and a substantial portion of tapas for all. Highly recommend this trip.
The small group enabled the tour guide to answer any and all questions. He was knowlegeable on the winery but also gave us background history of the region so we could understand why processes evolved.
Excellent tour! Montserrat was beautiful with the unusual shaped mountains framing the background for the city and cathedral. The wine tasting experience was the best, with tapas paired with wines. Our female guide was very knowledgeable, patient, and fun to be with.
My boyfriend and I went on the Montserrat and Wine Tour half day tour with Castexperience. And we had a great experience! Everything about the tour from the bus ride to Montserrat to the wine tasting went very smoothly. Everyone was very professional. Our tour guide, Xavi, was exceptionally awesome. He was highly knowledgeable about the area and the places we visited. He was able to provide a lot of background stories to the sites that we went to that made our experience. I highly recommend the tour to anyone who is visiting Barcelona and want to do an excursion.
Excellent tour! We did the afternoon wine and cheese tasting option. The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable about wine, the tour was excellently organized, and the views from the castle were amazing. A delightful way to spend an afternoon.
Viktor and Xavii were AWESOME!! This was our first tour of our trip, and one of the best. My family was traveling together, including my mother, who uses a walker. I gave all the tour operators the same information about her limited mobility. This company asked Viktor along so that they could accommodate her. There were three groups and Viktor arranged it so that he stayed with my mom, allowing her to walk slowly and as far as she could, and encouraged the rest of us to join the others in the tour, who were with Xavii. Xavii led us up to the Basilica and explained many, many historical facts along the way. He clearly loves his job and is interested in the area. Meanwhile, Viktor treated my mom to coffee when she was done walking, and met us back at the bus. We were then off to the winery, where we met up with another group. Viktor again modified the tour so that the group we did the wine tasting with had already completed the tour of the fields, which he knew my mother would be unable to do. We participated in the rest of the day and loved it. The driver of the bus as also very helpful in storing my mothers walker wt each stop. These people care and the tour operator made sure that they read, and made special arrangements for, my moms mobility challenges. Other tour operators made no such effort. I would do this tour again, with Viktor and Xavii, any time.
We did only the half day.. and it was AMAZING! Touring the monastery was BEAUTIFUL! The castle vineyard with wine and cheese tasting was out of a fairytale... Not enough great things to say about this tour. DO IT!
Truly a small group. Our guide, Irene, was very friendly and knowledgeable. We had the winery to ourselves and Montserrat was amazing. Definitely recommend.
We had a lovely tour. Juan was friendly and knowledgeable.
We enjoyed the historical references and anecdotes about the monastery and the 1000 year old winery.
The wine tasting portion was fun and the bocadillos were good!
I recommend it to anyone who has not been.
