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. :-
A wonderful trip. Our guide was very friendly and quite good company for the half-day journey to Monsterrat and back. He was very knowledgeable about the place and about the country in general. It was a true highlight of our trip to Barcelona. Highly recommended!
My wife and I are so happy to have been able to book a private tour through BCN Dream Tours. Our travel guide Eloi Morte was first class all the way.
From the very moment Eloi sent me an email to confirm my booking, I knew we would be in good hands. It started with an introduction, asking me if the time of pick up would be convenient for me and my wife or if I wanted to move it back a little and ended with him attaching a picture of himself so I could easily spot him the day of our tour when he picked us up at our hotel.
His SUV was clean and very comfortable for starters and immediately put me and my wife at ease with his laid back approach and enthusiasm to getting the day started.
So off we go to Montserrat, which I would highly recommend to everyone a must see.
Drive was less than an hour and the history Eloi shared, stories about the progression of how this world wonder was built over time, was just fantastic.
Upon getting to our destination, he made it a point to let us know that he was there for us and that if we wanted to take pictures, as many pictures as we wanted, he would gladly take it for us again, one of the reasons I will not book a group tour again, if at all possible. In a group tour, even if it's a small group, you are still beholden to time frames for the group, so things are not as relaxed and the opportunity to take that perfect picture is sometimes just not possible, because you don't want to hold the group up.
Of course, I'm sure if it's a group tour that you put together with Eloi and his team, he will still manage to get you that perfect picture nonetheless, because he understands how important capturing that moment is.
Each step we took at Montserrat, Eloi made sure to share a little tid bit about what we were seeing. He was even able to snap a picture of my wife and I during our pause for a moment at the Black Madonna.
Not enough room to complete what we want to share about Eloi - so all we can say is HIRE him. Awesome.
This tour was absolutely amazing and I recommend it to anyone who wants to see a more panoramic and sightseeing view of Barcelona. Our tour guide, Eloi was very insightful and gave us very detailed information on Montserrat and its history as well as information on Barcelona and Spain in general. Eloi was also very friendly to my family and I and he felt more like a friend rather than just a typical tour guide. This tour was also extremely comfortable and relaxing, much like a vacation should be. Plus the views are great ! Therefore, it is safe to say that this tour really did make me fall in love with the city. Overall, I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see a more beautiful and monumental side of Barcelona. Eloi had great expertise and was very knowledgeable so I know he works with a great company. I trust that the other tours provided by Eloi and his company will be just as amazing.
Great trip up to Montserrat and highly recommend Marc our tour guide was great organised everythign and made it very easy to get there. We would have loved to have spent more time there as it felt a bit rushed through no fault of Marc just the time we had there didnt allow us the time to visit the museum or go up the funicular as we had to choose whether to watch the boys choir or go up funicular.
