Mark our guide was terrific. It was great having him meet us at our hotel and guide us the entire day. Not a thing to worry about and hes a wealth of information. We enjoyed a tapas lunch to top off a great day.
We started off from Plaza Catalunya up to the start of the cable car. Perfect travel time to discuss much more about the tour and the important facts of Montserrat.
We had a chance to absorb much of the details because we were only 4 in this private tour and we had time to enjoy photo shoots and prayer and a lovely paella meal. Without having to rush.
Marc is our tour guide in La Sagrada Familia and here so we're comfortable being with him. As nice as always and being so patient with us on our request even to go uphill. The best!
Great tour to Montserrat. Ramon was very helpful in making sure our day was filled interesting information and the sites of Montserrat.
We loved this tour! We were met by Marc who made our traveling day hassle free and a pleasure. He was kind and patient, very attentive to all of our needs. He had so much information and history to share with us. We were a family of 6 so he kept us moving but at a perfect pace. It was such a pleasure to have him guide us throughout the day. We finished our day with a lovely Paella lunch at a terrific restaurant. He was very in tune with our expectations and we loved every minute!
Jordi met us at our hotel promptly and began what turned out to be an incredible day! Jordi knew all of the tips and hints for the transit systems that took us to Montserrat. Without his guidance, we would have been left in the dust! As it was, we were in the front of the gondola that took us up the mountainside to the town of Montserrat and had the best views! He was very knowledgeable about the history and he made sure we had the shortest wait to see the Black Madonna and make our wish. He also guided us in the church to witness the amazing performance of the boys choir. Afterward, Jordi took us back into the city for a fantastic lunch. It was an unforgettable day made perfect by our guide Jordi!

I busy day but our guide Jorge was professional and personable and kept us moving and informed. A wonderful way to see Montserrat and sample some of the local food and culture. Our tour ended with a lovely paella dinner at a Barcelona restaurant. A most enjoyable day.

Without a doubt I recommend this tour
Our guide was prompt,courteous,knowledgeable and very patient.
This was one of the best tours we've ever done. Our guide, Jordi, picked us up at the hotel and took us by subway and train to Montserrat where we rode the cable car to the top. Jordi was extremely knowledgeable and we very much enjoyed spending the day with him. We gained so much insight into Montserrat but also Catalunya and Barcelona. A very interesting person! We were totally enchanted by the boys choir! The church is so beautiful. We enjoyed a lovely coffee and local pastery at the monastery and later enjoyed a wonderful lunch. We very much enjoyed this tour!
Great tour...only wish it could have been twice as long...there is much to see at Montserrat. Prepare for it if you have time, by reading up on the black madonna there, and others in Europe, and by reading about the fine collection in the art museum. Beautiful site, well worth the time to train up to it and back.
A must do tour. Great way to get to Monserrat with a wonderful guide. Ernesto is one of the best we had during our stay in Barcelona

Amazing experience with such a knowledgeable guide who brought this Holy Mountain to life with past and present. Scheduled to leave on a cruise from Barcelona the afternoon of my tour and BCN Dream tours went out of their way to provide me with a private tour and gude/driver Ernesto who picked me up from my hotel and then delivered me to the port once the tour was completed. Ernesto is such a delightful person to spend the day with as he truly enjoys expressing and sharing the history of the venue in which you are visiting. No matter what tour you are looking at La Sagrada, Barcelona City or Montserrat Abbey you can't go wrong with BCN Dream tours they are professional and on point.
Our guide Jordie picked us up at our hotel and took us by public transportation to visit Montserrat. He made sure we were in position to get seats on the train for the one hour journey and to be the first on line for the cable car. Throughout the day he asked our preferences then timed our activities to be sure we had the best views. On the way home we had a snack of a local bread with chocolate which was delicious. Although it indicated that it included lunch, the tour really only included this snack. Jordie was a great guide and we had a fabulous day.
Marc was a terrific guide, organized, fun, professional, affable, tailored to our specs....and we had an awesome day at Montserrat. Highly recommend the trip -and Marc as your guide if you can get him.
Our guide Marc was great! He was very informative and spoke great English! The visit to Montserrat was great! There is an hour long train ride involved which was a little tiring!
My husband and I took a private, 6 hr tour to Montserrat on May 6. Ernesto met us at our lodging and we walked to the Metro, then took the cable car to the mountain. We had actually been to the mtn a few days earlier with a small tour different company, but having a private tour with Ernesto made a huge difference. He is warm, friendly, knowledgeable and learned what we most wanted from the tour. The one-hr travel each way was enriched through the guide's knowledge and perspectives about the Catalonian culture. While on the mountain, he paid close attention to timing so that we spent the least amount of time in the waiting line to see the Moreneta, which was a deeply moving experience for us. Ernesto offered to capture special moments by photo, which we greatly appreciated. He pointed out special features at Montserrat that we had missed on our earlier visit. He also went far beyond the requirements of the tour by showing us, step-by-step, how to use the Metro and Renfe stations and making sure we understood how to navigate the system--even going an extra Metro stop with us. We completely enjoyed our time with Ernesto and highly recommend BCN Dream Tours. We wish we would have known about the company so we could have booked other tours with them. We were well taken care of, and appreciate the more personal connection we made in such a short time.
This was an outstanding trip. Our tour guide Ernesto was delightful! His english was great and his knowledge of the area even better. My wife and I had a wonderful time. We would both highly recommend Ernesto and this trip. What a great adventure!!!
Ramon did a terrific job. He was well prepared for our trip and his knowledge of Montserrat was overwhelming. I would highly recommend this for anyone considering this tour.
I was really looking forward to this tour and it didn't disappoint. Our tour guide was Albert. He was very punctual and very attentive to all our needs. He provided us with great tips for restaurants and other things to do while at Barcelona. The train ride over was fast, no more than 40 minutes. Once there we took the cable car to the top, great experience. He was on top of things and made sure we didn't have to make a long line to see the Virgin and the boy choir. . The day we visited was cold and extremely foggy which impaired some of the sightseen but been in this place is so surreal it gives you the chills. Would definitely go back next time in Barcelona

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this activity. Our tour provider was very organized. They confirmed pickup time and sent us a photo of our tour guide prior to the tour date. Our guide, Albert, was punctual and attentive to what we wanted to get out of the tour. We covered all that had to be seen in the allotted time but never felt rushed. Albert was very knowledgeable and eager to share what Montserrat and Barcelona have to offer. Highly recommend this tour!!!
My wife and I had an excellent tour of Montserrat, and this was made possible by our guide Eloi Morte.
Eloi went above and beyond expectations, he turned the tour into an unforgettable experience. His care of our needs, his depth of knowledge and his love of his work and country made it a memorable and cherished experience. It was the personal touch and care from Eloi that made it even more special.
BCN is a wonderful tour company. I only wish I had known about them specifically before we booked anywhere else for anything else. Albert not only told us about Montserrat, he taught us a great deal about Barcelona and her people which is one of the reasons we love to travel. I am going to recommend this company to our friends who are traveling to Barcelona in the future. And, when we return for the finishing of La Sagrada Familia in 2026, we will be calling BCN before we travel. :-
