This tour was great. We only had 6 people and the driving was very nice and accommodating with our schedules and what we wanted to see. I would recommend this trip as it was an easy, comfortable ride to the mountains and back with a great tour guide.
Ferran was our guide - very knowledgeable and accommodating. Excellent trip.
I highly recommend this tour. Our guide was fantastic and our day was filled with absolute wonder and beauty
Fran was amazing and very friendly. We enjoyed the monastery, cable car and the walk over the bridge. The cable car ride gave us a higher perspective and an opportunity to see the mountain's profile at eye level. Throughly enjoyed the hike down. Thank you Fran!
Loved it! Be prepared for lots of walking but it is mostly downhill and so worth it!!!!
Ferran, our guide was very professional, on time, and paced the tour well. He guided the tour very deftly being there when you needed him and in the background when you didn't. Our party of 6 made up the majority of the group yet he included the other two seamlessly in the total group. The entire tour was made more enjoyable by having such a wonderful guide. The one thing I would say is that for many older Americans or out of shape, the hike is moderate, but doable. Everyone really enjoyed the tour.
The tour was amazing! We would like to thank and commend our tour guide Farran for doing an excellent job.
This was a fabulous tour to the monastery at Montserrat. It included everything that was on my wish list and more-the boys choir, Black Madonna, a cable car ride up the mountain for fabulous views. Our guide Ferran spelling? spent a lot of time giving information on the monastery and its history as well as the countryside. We were a group of 8-a nice number. We had no trouble hearing what was said and our guide was able to answer all of our questions. I would certainly recommend this tour. Do wear comfortable shoes for the walk down the hillside.
Our guide, Ferran from Mont Escapes met us on time at our hotel. The van was new and very nice for traveling. Ferran was very informative about what we would see and how important it was to meet certain deadlines since crowds would cause delays at the black Madonna and the boys choir if we did not stay ahead. This was great because we were able to have a leisurely and informative tour without wasting time standing in unnecessary lines. Ferran was very knowledgeable on the history surrounding Montserrat. I would highly recommend him for your future tours. Montserrat is well worth the time to see and the drive from Barcelona affords you a view of some beautiful countryside
Went the first of November. We arrived just above the clouds early one morning. It was an amazing site and I would definitely recommend this tour.
Great tour, though the weather did not give us the views we hoped for. The tour and the guide were excellent. We got there early before the crowds and had easy access to the Black Madonna. The boy's choir sang for 10 minutes and the hike back down was pleasant but with limited views on the day we were there due to cloud cover.
Unbelievable! We had our tour guide all to ourselves and he was amazing. The views were spectacular! The hike was great and it was definitely geared toward our athletic ability which was perfect for us. I highly recommend!!! Must do if you are in Barcelona!
Amazing excursion!! Our guide was great! Highly recommend this tour.
A stunningly wonderful tour. Our guide, Ferran Batllori, was incredibly informative not only about Montserrat but also Catalonia, the economy, history and culture. Very well informed and personable. Since we arrived ahead of the tour buses, we were able to tour the monastery in front of the crowd. The hike up the mountain side above the monastery was a definite plus particularly since the weather was good. Wear decent hiking shoes but the trail is very manageable we're in our late 60s but fit. Ferran checked to see if the children's choir would be singing that day and made sure we were inside the church in ample time. And on our return to the hotel, he took us through the Montjuic area and described all of the Olympic village sites and attractions in that area. The quality/price ratio for this tour was very high...a bargain for a incredible trip that still left us time to get to the Picasso museum later in the day.
Our guide Jose was fantastic!!!! He took great care of us the entire time. Very thoughtful and wanted to ensure the experience was what we wanted. He gave us choices and we decided how we wanted the day to go. Our hotel was outside of Barcelona and he was kind enough to pick us up and drop us off as well, this was no issue for him. We had 2 children with us and he was great with them. I cannot say enough great things, this tour is a must see. The mountain is just beautiful, you have to visit for sure!!!
Small group tour with hotel pick up/drop off just my family of 4 basically a private tour. Very flexible and enjoyable. Very small tour company that works hard to make your happy. Guide Feran was very knowledgable and courteous. Would definitely consider using them again when in Barcelona.
We highly recommend this trip.
Our guide Ferran picked us up at our hotel at the scheduled time.
The drive from our hotel to Montserrat took approximately 45 minutes as we were staying in the older part of Barcelona. Ferran pointed out many interesting points of interest during the drive and answered our questions about the surrounding area.
Once there the tour of the monetary was very informative and he allowed us time for photos. After the monastery it was a ride on the cable car to the top of the mountain. We then hiked to some interesting areas on the mountain. He then asked us about our choices of which route to descend. We based it on our physical abilities and he confirmed.
I do have to admit that the hike down was long and mostly in the sun so be aware. However we enjoyed the spectacular views and the commentary by Farren.
Once back to the monastery we were allowed time to shop in the gift store or grab a quick snack. Then it was the drive back to the hotel as we talked about what we saw.
We recommend you bring water for the hike, although a bottle of water was provided at the beginning of the trip, it may not be enough for some. Also bring some snacks to enjoy along the way as the hike can be lengthy.
We highly recommend this tour as Ferran was very informative and we enjoyed the sights.
Thank you Ferran for being an awesome tour guide and for a memorable trip!
This tour was terrific! Four of us went in mid-June and were lucky that we were the only ones on this tour. Mark, our guide, picked us up at our hotel and was a wonderful host for the trip. He spoke excellent English, was extremely polite and helpful, and made us feel at home. The mountains and monastery are absolutely beautiful. The hike down from the top of the funicular roughly a 45-degree cable car that goes up the mountain was a little steep, but we managed. Mark was very patient and accommodating, though. I highly recommend this trip to get outside of the city and see beautiful mountains and a historic monastery.
. We were collected from our hotel and began a wonderful tour. Our guide Ferrin, was knowledgable, informative and great company. After a ride in the cable car, a walk back down the mountain admiring the amazing views and rock formations we toured the Montserrat Abby and listened to the boys choir, what a treat! A stroll through the local farmers market and back to Barcelona.
What a great day.
Despite the rain and the cold, our tour with Ferran was. Rey enjoyable. Worth it! Vermin, his associate was also very accommodating and fun.
A fun day despite the rain and cold weather. Ferran was great!
Montserrat is a must see! The Basilica is absolutely beautiful. We rode the cable car up and did some hiking. Amazing views from the top. I totally recommend Mont Escape tour's for your visit to Montserrat. Marc our guide was fabulous. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Montserrat and he let us take our time looking around.
