Fabulous tour! Hit all the highlights in Barcelona, and still enjoyed Montserrat. We wear able to hear the daily performance of the Montserrat boys choir. Never felt hurried. Our guide was outstanding.

Wonderful tour! Informative guide and experienced driver!. Park Guell was beautiful! Trip to Montserrat let us see some beautiful countryside and we got to hear the boys choir sing. They sounded like angels!!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

Firstly, Marta is wonderful. So full of knowledge, excellent English, and a delightful person. Our group was 12 and she handled us all like individuals. Equal treatment for all. The tour itself was a very nice balance of walking and riding and timed out beautifully. The biggest pluses are being picked up right at the dock, the small group size, and the excellent price!

The guide, Marta was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English.
There was plenty of time to take pictures at all the stops.
We liked being picked up at the cruise terminal and dropped off at the airport after the tour.

Our tour with Marta was everything we expected. Marta was extremely informative about the sites we visited.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Great tour - packed a lot in for the day - obviously you could spend a lot more time in Barcelona - but this was a good family option for a one day cruise shore excursion. Meeting up at the cruise terminal was easy - and our family of six shared the tour with another family of five. Saw most of the big sites in Barcelona - and Montserrat was beautiful. The guide's English was good and she shared plenty of information about what we were seeing.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

We booked a total of 4 tours through viator, and this was one of our favorites. It was nice to be in a small group rather than with the large groups the cruise ships offer. Not to mention, this one was a lot cheaper. Our tour guide Marta was excellent. If I were to change one thing, I would have spent less time at Montserrat and more time in Barcelona.

I'm glad we took this tour-Barcelona's a big city! Montserrat was definitely the highlight. The guide was great--we even had an older man leave the tour group to go back to the bus he wasn't feeling good. He just told his wife, so the tour guide was unaware until we all got back to the bus and he wasn't there. She was very concerned and went out and found him. We felt like we were in very safe hands the whole time.
