Fantastic tour and Fantastic Guide. The explanations given by the personal guide were exhaustive from the geology of the caves to the turbulent history of the catalans and their Montserrat Abbey. Would definitely recommend it to families with kids who want to experience something different.

Vivian and I apologize can't remember driver's name were great. Private tour was excellent so that we moved at our own pace and able to stay longer or shorter at each stop. My teenage boys loved the cave tour, quite an adventure. More interesting than I had realized from description. The abbey was stunning and filled with so much history. We all learned something new. The boys choir, the walk to the chapel and visit to Black Madonna were highlights. Can't miss tour while in Barcelona!

The tour of Montserrat was truly outstanding.
Our tour guide, Vivian, was extremely knowledgeable and complemented our day excellently. She took as much time as we needed to see all of the sights and answer each and every question.
Would highly recommend.
