Great hike with a very knowledgeable local guide. The pick up place is a van, got a bit lost looking for a shop.
The rest of the tour went very smoothly and the guides were most helpful and fun!
Montserrat is breathtaking! It was a very worthwhile experience. We loved our guide, Flavio! He was pleasant and informed. It was a very cold, extremely windy day and he lent his gloves and sweater to my daughter to stay warm.
I'm so glad we booked this trip! Montserrat is not to be missed if you are anywhere close. Our tour guides were great! They were kind, friendly, and so knowledgable about Montserrat and its history. While hiking, they noticed that some of our group was interested in a more active hike and we broke into two smaller groups. Our family chose the more difficult hike and it was fabulous! We hiked higher into the mountains and the views were breathtaking. We even made it back in time to see the boys choir sing.

The Monserrat Monastery trip was a memorable one! the early morning tour started at the famous Passeig de Gràcia in front of the Casa Milà La Pedrera by Antoni Gaudí . it was a lovely start to a very beautiful day ahead. Our guide David who spoke impeccable English and his collegue Franco did a wonderful job in giving us the history, geography, culture and politics of Barcelona ! the bus journey to Montserrat was thus very informative and interesting. we reached the Montserrat monastery and the sight of the mountains and the monastery set in the midst of the amazing formations was breathtaking. the church with the Black Madonna was marvelous with the boys choir adding to the surreal experience. the scenic cable car ride followed by the small hike to the top of the mountain with David giving information on the flora and fauna of the place made it even more amazing. all in all we loved the trip including the food at the Restaurant Montserrat!!
This was a fun tour. Lots of amazing things to see. Our guide Unai was great and really added to the day. It was a rainy/cold day in January so he gave the group 4 of us the option to go to the museum instead of the 2 hour hike. And the company paid for the museum fees Very nice of them. And he also offered to drop us off at our hotels on the way home again since it was raining. One slightly negative thing was the railway/cable car was not included. I believe it was closed for maintenance but nothing was said about it during the tour. Only when I got back and was looking at the details did I realize that should have been part of the day. But again, probably nothing they could have done about it. We saw the black Madonna as well as the boys choir. So a very full day in 5 hours.
This is an amazing tour! Worth every penny.
Best day of our Barcelona trip. Monserrat is breathtaking, not to be missed. We broke into hiking groups based on ability, and we went on the advanced hike. The hike was challenging enough to be interesting, but very difficult. Unai our guide was awesome, he really knows the mountain and its history well. It was foggy when we went, so we didn't get to full panoramic views, but the inversion layer just added to the drama. If you are tired of seeing building and want to connect with nature, this is not to be missed.
Driver and tour guide team were very knowledgeable and showed genuine concern when my daughter and I were not able to join them for the hike. They also accommodated us the following day when we got lost looking for the meeting spot on our scheduled tour. Would definitely recommend this tour!
This tour was amazing!
We loved this tour. The monastery and related building were very impressive, the choir sang beautifully. The highlight for us though, was the hike itself, we had the guide to ourselves and he was very generous with his time and knowledge . The scenery was breathtaking and the view from the second cross afforded us a 360degree vista of the whole area.
