Maintenance of the caves area made it impossible to visit the caves. We did fill the time available visiting the abbey and attending a church service with the choristers singing.
The one day strike in Barcelona made it difficult to get out of town, but the driver did it.
The tour guide was excellent.
We learned a lot about the area and its roll in pilgrimages to Santiago de Campostela.
Fantastic tour. The caves were fascinating. The climb can be quite steep inside the caves and therefore that section is not ideal for everyone. The Abbey is a beautiful place and spiritual.
Great tour. Very good speaking english tour guide. We've learned a lot from this tour because she explains things very well. and she's friendly and accomodating and helpful. Worth booking this tour. Really worth the money and a two thumbs up. :
This tour is very informative and worthwhile taking. Our tour guide Catalina was very nice and knowledgeable.
There were just four in our group, plus Monica our guide and the driver. It was a wonderful day packed with fantastic sights and great history. Monica made sure we got to see as much as possible. After the mass we were able to get into the cathedral to see and hear the boys choir. Later in the day we went back and were able to see and touch the Black Madonna.
There were also many dance groups there performing in the square. It was fun to see the different costumes.
Two of us rode to the top of the mountain on the funicular with Monica and the other two went to the museum. Views from the top were phenomenal. Would have loved to have time to walk to one of the hermit's huts.
Took a hike along the Stations of the
Cross Pathway- beautiful and it literally took my breath away.........some steep areas.
This tour was terrific and our guide was wonderful.
We highly recommend putting Montserrat Abbey on your Barcelona travel schedule. Our tour guide Monica was totally amazing, a font of knowledge, Barcelonal history, Abbey history, landmark history -- it was like having a tour from a University Professor with a delightful personality. We felt we were friends by the end of the tour. One additional note, the Caves happened to be under repair at the time of our visit, so we were offered other options including a partial refund. We chose the funicular ride instead and that was also an excellent option that we thoroughly enjoyed. This site and tour was well worth the investment of time and funds.

Great guide. This is a must-see in Barcelona, it was part of the Sagrada Familia experience.
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.
Was so excited to see that it was a small group of just 4 people! Very impressed with our guide and #39;s knowledge and English.
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!
had an amazing time!!!!!. the caves were not touring so we had a subsitute which
was just as amazing and beautiful

AMAZING. Vivian was the most articulate and knowledgeable guide. She was punctual picking us up and so friendly and nice. Couldn't have done better. Comfortable mini van so it all worked out.
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.
Loved this tour! Highly recommend as Vivian was a great guide and provided memorable history of Montserrat and the caves! She was very good with the child in our group as well 6 year old and was patient and engaging.
Wonderful trip. Vivian our guide was so full of knowledge. She truly made our trip unforgettable!
This tour was excellent! The caves are amazing, and we were the only ones there. Monserrat in the pm is better than the am, so we had few crowds. Our tour guide was very knowledgable.
Unfortunately the caves were closed. Montserrat Abbey was beautiful. My only complaint was that there was a tremendous amount of walking, much of it uphill.
While our tour guide Vivian was so fluent in English and very intelligent, I would have liked to have learned more about the rock formations and less about the religious details.
