Gaudi Crypt was worth while to visit.
I've been in monastry of Monserrat several times before, at this time I spent most of time in hiking.
The view from the mountain was great. I was sorry I had only 4 hours free time in mosserat including lunch time.
This day trip to Montserrat and Colonia Guell was fantastic because of the knowledge and friendliness of our guide. A comfortable bus ride, plenty of free time, and a most accomodating and enthusiastic guide.
We certainly received much more than I was expecting from the tour. Everything from the Cava at Colonia Guell to the boys choir at Monserrat was very enjoyable and interesting. The day was paced perfectly. Our guide, Carlos, was fabulous! He was very knowledgeable, upbeat, and made sure that we understood his directions and explanations. He gave us great tips throughout the day about what to see and how to best avoid the crowds. Great day!
Montserrat and the rail rack ride were great. Well worth seeing the basilica and surround art works. The highlight of the tour for me, though, was seeing Gaudi's crypt currently used as a church. Beautiful and inspiring. Definitely recommend. .
The guide of this tour was amazing. The site was also fantastic and a must see.
The overall trip experience was enjoyable. It's quite an experience and fun taking the almost vertical train up to the very top of the mountain. The only heads up is that lunch takes place at Montserrat and the options are very limited as there are only a couple cafes up there.
This was a really nice tour. An amazing tour guide, Olga, who is really eager to share her love to her country with the group. Colonia Guell is off main track, but with Olga's help this where I started to understand Gaudi, his innovation in architecture and structural design. MOnserrat was also very interesting, and the tour to the boys' school building was impressive. I would highly recommend this new tour.
I loved this tour. Anything Gaudi designed is truly other worldly and so worth seeing. Like the Gaudi crypt. Truly beautiful. Montserrat was magical, spiritual and the views stunning. The monastery is impressive and highlight was listening to boys choir and then guided through their school.
Besides the Monastery, Montserrat offers a splendid Natural Park. The Gaudi Crypt gave a glimpse into Gaudi's incredible architecture, as we had not seen Basilica of the Sagrada Familia. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative. We also had a local guide from Montserrat who gave us a tour of the school in the Monastery.
Our visit to the Gaudi Crypt helped us to appreciate our tour of Sagrada Familia. The history of Colonial Guell is very interesting and we're glad that it is still an active community today. Really a unique site to visit. Montserrat is amazing. In particular I enjoyed the tour of the boys' school and the funicular up the mountain for a spectacular view of the monastery. In addition, Paula in your home office was a great help to us during our stay in Barcelona.
Great day out. Colonia Guell was interesting and the crypt is lovely I think it's world heritage, so should be. Montserrat is GLORIOUS! Skip the audio/visual and head up the funicular St Joan additional 10E and have a walk for as long as possible! The monastary and its Bacillica are lovely, but the 'boy's choir/school tour was a bit long, especially as they were NOT performing when I was there.
Perfect package. Colonia Guell and the Gaudi Crypt are not to be missed. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable.
The tour guide Hector was great. The Colonia was a great trip back in time and to get up close to one of Gaudi's works was very impressive. To see the attention to detail was incredible. Montserrat was breathtaking. Instead of waiting in line for an hour to see the Madonna, we took the funicular to the top and took some really good photos. Definitely recommend this tour!
This tour was fantastic! Tour guide, Carlos, was friendly, accomodating and knowledgable. Would recommend this tour.
An outstanding day trip. So much to see but didn't feel rushed at all. Just wished we had not booked a Saturday so we could have heard the boys choir singing. Definitely recommended.
This was really a grand day out spent looking at the Gaudi Crypt absolutely beautiful, touring the small community of Colonia Guell, and then continuing on to see the Monastery at Montserrat. After spending the previous day in Barcelona, we thoroughly enjoyed seeing these additional sights, and even seeing the countryside on the way to Montserrat was enjoyable.
Amazing tour!! Definitely spring for the full day trip, you won't regret it!
Totally worth it! Interesting to see and learn about. Excellent tour guide.
Excellent tour. Guide was very informative and it was a very interesting trip. Thank you
