Our tour guide Francesc was awesome, funny and speaks English very well. We were picked up first (promptly) and picked up a single traveler and another small group on the way. The pick up route was well planned and i never felt we went out of our way. On the trip up, Francesc shared good info and insight on the region. He adapted the tour well based on everyone's need - fortunately everyone in our group was up to the gondola ride to Montserrat. He gave us a good overview of Montserrat and suggestions of things we could do during our free time. Unfortunately, the boys choir was not performing the day we went, which was unforeseeable. We had a great half day and it was nice to see a little of the countryside outside of Barcelona.

Great tour guide Luis. Weather was cloudy and rainy and clouds swirling around the mountains made it more beautiful. Did miss the funicular to the monastery at top of hill due to weather. Too bad. Would be nice to spend more time there when weather better. Mountains are absolutely unique as you get closer to them.

This half-day tour was well worth the money! Our guide Vincent was a wealth of knowledge about Monsterrat and the city of Barcelona. He was friendly, professional. He was easy to converse with as his English was excellent! He encouraged us to ask questions and stayed with us as we toured the site. He also gave our small group of just 6, insight and information about the people, places and key sights to see while in Barcelona.

If you're looking for a good way to get outside of the city, this tour is a must. No hassling with catch a bus or train, you’ll receive door to door pickup and drop off. I’m so glad we decided to book this tour, thank you to Vincent and our driver Jauquin.

The entire experience was outstanding from the moment we met our driver on the Rambas street at 3:00pm (15:00). Our hotel pickup location close to the Rambas was not accessible. Karles did an outstanding job and I would recommend him.

Our guide - Moriutz - was terrific! He was prompt, kind, humorous, and a joy with our group. Perfect length for an excursion.

My wife and I went on the Montserrat Tour with our guide Monia in early March 2019 and it was definitely the best, most personal tour that we've ever experienced. Monia picked us up from our hotel and to our surprise, we were the only couple on the small-group tour. During the ride to Montserrat she gave us all the history of Barcelona, the area and Montserrat. Once we arrived, it was unfortunately extremely foggy so we couldn't see the views from atop the mountain. But Monia was so full of information and passionate about everything she was describing and it made the tour even better. Monia took her time and went above and beyond what we expected. I would recommend her as a tour guide to anyone and we would definitely book with her again next time in Barcelona. Thank so so much Monia and Viator!!

We had an early morning pick up at our hotel on Plaza Real. An excellent trip to Monserrant, and then cable car to the top. Enjoyed the excursion of the Basilica and hearing the boys choir.Our driver was informative,, left the group to discover the site, and informed us best time to enter the Basilica.

Our guide Miquel ckearly explained many items of interest on the hour long drive from Barcelona to Montserrat. When we arrived he explained the history of the monastery and the structure of the community of Benedictine monks. The walk to the cross was arduos, but Miquel modulated the pace so I didn’t pass out. The view when we arrived made the trek worthwhile. The highlight of the visit was the concert by the boys choir in the beautiful church. All in all, this was a great half day excursion. Btw, Miquel is a great driver!

Great tour with a great tour guide! If visiting Barcelona, this tour is a must! If you can do it with a small group is even better. Lots of history and lots to see and photograph.
