Excellent trip. Great guides. I wish the time at Monserrat was longer and the Wine tour was shorter. So much to take in at Monserrat.
Our tour guide was awesome. This tour was the highlight of my trip.
This was a great tour! Not only did we get to spend a few hours hiking and exploring Montserrat and it's beautiful church and views, the wine and tapas tour felt like a whole additional experience! Alex, our tour guide, was personable and very knowledgeable about the history of Montserrat and the different wines at Oller del Mar Winery. The tapas were amazing!
We spent 10 days traveling Spain and this was a highlight of our holiday. We started the day with Pol. He was welcoming, knowledgable and a perfect guide for the morning visit to Montserrat. For the afternoon portion, we chose the longer lunch with wine tasting. Marta was our guide. She easily welcomed us into her group. She was fun, funny and knowledgable about the location and the wine.
Awesome tour! The guides were knowledgeable and friendly, especially Dani. Monserrat was beautiful and I recommend climbing to the Cross for the views. I've been to Napa and Sonoma several times and was surprised how much I enjoyed the trip to the winery. It was amazing, views of mountains in background . The wines, two whites and two reds were also great wines. We enjoyed the tapas too! I highly recommend this tour.

This was my first experience with a guided tour and it was not disappointing. It was a smallish group and the guides were wonderful. Very knowledgeable and friendly and they It was a little hectic with several tours arriving at the same time at Montserrat but they made sure we were all there and accounted for before proceeding. I enjoyed having time to myself as I like to sketch and there was enough of that. The Wine tour was extremely fun, the wines were delicious and the location was great. I opted not to go for the full lunch and I was glad I did - the tapas served were more than enough to satisfy as a lunch and I enjoyed the tour very much.
Really great experience. Alex was a fabulous tour guide - great sense of humour, very informative and flexible. He offered us many inside facts about Barcelona and was very informed about the area, the process of making and drinking wine, and Montserrat. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the day and highly recommend this tour.
This was a nice tour and our guide Anges was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Montserrat was beautiful and we got to hear the boys choir and of course tasting wine was relaxing. The tapas were tasty.
I wanted to go to Montserrat but after reading about the train/rack rail schedules I wanted an option that handled the logistics for me. Throw in a wine tasting at a 1000 year old castle? Total win. A great guided tour with solo time to explore. They also perfectly worked around my food issues.
What an excellent tour! We met our guide easily and was transported to the area in a very clean and comfortable luxury bus. History of Barcelona was given during the drive to the site. Interesting and engaging guides with great knowledge, history, and delivery. Their conversations were entertaining and informative and not boring typical tour talk that we had experienced on different tours. Xavi , I apologize if the spelling is incorrect, was awesome. Amusing, energetic, intelligent, and humorous for the entire day. Lunch after the day at Montserrat was amazing! Farm to table delicious feast followed by wine tasting in a castle. One of the best tours we have ever taken. Cannot recommend our guide and this tour enough!!! Thanks for a great experience!!!
This was the kind of tour I liked ! Plenty of information and education, and plenty of time to explore on our own. Sites were great, guide was great.
We had a beautiful day. Alex was our guide he did a great job. He was very good about explaining everything we saw. You could certainly see he loved his job. We took the bus from the Hard Rock Café, very easy to find. Look for the pink umbrella! The views were very nice going up the mountain. The monastery and chapel were beautiful. We were treated by a group of people that climb on each other to form pyramids. I understand that is a tradition at festivals and special events. They even had very small children. Very entertaining.
We then went to a small family owned winery where we had lunch. Tapas were served. We enjoyed them all from soup to dessert!! Wine was included, of course. We took a short walk to see the vineyard and where they make and bottle the wine. We had a fun wine tasting with Alex. He was just a wealth of knowledge!! I think we had 10 of us in the group and we had a delightful day. I have mentioned the tour to everyone. It was the highlight of our 4 days in Barcelona! Thank you Alex!
The day was lovely!
Very well organized trip on this busy day as it was a Sunday. We had the pleasure of having Lorenzo as our guide, but as we were sharing transportation we got to meet the other guides aswell.
Loved every part of it. Monastery, the lunch at the winery and of course the wine.
Agnes, our guide, was a pleasure to be with and also provided a lot of historical information about the Mountains, the monastery, and the region. Her knowledge of wine and the wine making process was great. The wines were quit good as 2re the tapas. Comfortable bus, small group.
Wonderful day in Montserrat! The tour was well organized and the guides very efficient! Our guide Jordi was simply amazing! Very pleasant and friendly! This tour immerses you in the history of the monestary whilst allowing you to explore on your own. We opted for the lunch which was delicious and filling! The wine tour provided an excellent onsite into the history of wine making in the region. A special mention to our guide Jordi. He was smiling from start to finish! Always engaging, pleasant and amiable. He took the time to interact with everyone in the group! Definitely a tour that was value for money!
We had a great time on this tour with Ana our tour guide. The tour starts with a bus ride to the Cog Wheel train. We were a bit nervous that the weather was not cooperating when we got on the train, but about half way up, we were on top of the clouds and it was amazing to see. After the train arrived we had a liquor tasting small but tasty and a snack followed by an introduction to the monastery. We then had an hour and a half on our own. We went into the monastery and then hiked to the cross and finally went to the art museum. We highly recommend the walk to the cross, even though it is uphill - the views are amazing! After the monastery we went to a local winery where we had wine and tapas - yummy! I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see some amazing scenery and also taste some great local wine. The length was perfect and our guide could not have been better!
I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to know more about Barcelona. It is very informative and mind blowing TOur
This was a wonderful trip. A bus took us for an hour ride through the countryside outside of Barcelona. We took the train to the top of Montserrat where we had ample time to visit the museum, the cathedral, and of course the gift shop. We had the opportunity to hear the famous boys choir in the cathedral. We joined the bus for a short trip to the vineyard for our tapas and wine tasting adventure. Our guide, Xavi, was very knowledgeable about the local wine, and gave a short course to some on the value of wine tasting. The tapas were satisfying as well as the wine itself. We had a wonderful opportunity to view Montserrat from a distance and quickly understood Gaudi's inspiration for his famous Segrada Familia. We returned to Barcelona by the end of the day in time to rest up for a great evening in Barcelona.
This tour was wonderful! Jordi my guide for the day was knowledgeable, friendly and really tried to make sure everyone was getting the most out of their experience. He was able to answer any question that was asked by our group. The monastery was beautiful and awe inspiring, the lunch was amazing, and the wine was delicious. The buses we took were comfortable while giving you a perfect view of so many amazing sights along the way. Highly recommend.
Great trip that is well worth doing. Clara, our guide, was easy to understand, pleasant and very knowledgeable.
Excellent excursion in all respects and would highly recommend it as a tour option. Our guide ALEX, was very personable, extremely knowledgeable and contributed greatly to our enjoyment of this excursion.
