Excellent tour, friendly and informative guide. Relatively large group but lots of space on the coach. Wonderful experience of peaceful but majestic surroundings. Anyone visiting Barcelona should book this trip! Highly recommended
The tour was absolutely wonderful but try to not use Laura's travel agency as our guide could hardly speak English and there bus broke down and we were stuck on the mountain for longer than 2 hours and missed our afternoon appointments.
Nice ride through the countryside and up the winding mountain road to the great Montserrat. Truly lovely.
The perfect amount of time to travel up to the mountains, stroll around, then back. The tour guide was wonderful, and we had a great time tasting the liquors. We really enjoyed this tour.
Everyone who visits Barcelona must take this tour. The scenery going and returning is breathtaking. Our guide was an expert on everything Catalonia. Monserrat is a mystical place that makes your heart soar. Don and #39;t miss it.
A good way to see Montserrat if you don and #39;t have much time. The guide was knowledgeable. We got just enough time to see the black Madonna and listen to the boy choir - which was heavenly. Will definitely recommend this tour.
This trip was amazing! The views alone made the trip worth it. I stuck around to hear the choir sing and bought some of the local cheese, which was delightful! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful.
A must do when in Madrid. The scenery and views are breathtaking. Montserrat is something like I've never seen before.
Excellent excursion and an excellent tour guide. Would recommend this to everyone!
Monserrat was awesome. I really wasn't sure what to expect but this trip exceeded all my expectations. Do not miss this tour!!!
It was a great trip wish it was longer, there's so much to see and explore and Montserrat.
VIRGI A United States of ...
This was a beautiful tour !! Our tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and very personable. She pointed out the rich history of the area, why it was named Montserrat and the story of the Virgin of Montserrat. The trip up and back was comfortable and the views were spectacular. The time available to visit the Monastery and the surrounding area worked out well for us and tasting of the four liquors was an added plus. I would highly recommend this tour.
This was a good tour. Tour guide, Rosa, was knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed very much.
Large sized bus with a large Japanese group for fought for seats then yelled to each other across many rows whilst the Guide was talking was not a great start to this day no more large group tours for me!
En route, our guide, Biguel, gave great commentary on much about Spain today eg finance, business and the royal family really good information. Ascending the mountain to the Monastery provided amazing views if not heart stopping drops off roadside!
Definitely a spiritual feeling to Montserratt. Left on our own for 2 hrs after our guide spent a little time explaining history of the site and the Black Madonna one can walk down to view her statue very steep, I chose not to, I lit a candle and viewed a short film inside the Museum very interesting and a must the choir was delightful and the liquor 4 of them all made at the monastery tasting included in our ticket yummy. Gift shop is expensive but profits go back into the Monastery. This very worthwhile half day tour had us back in the city by 2:30.
For me half a day was not enough since I wanted time to go to the top of the mountain on the funicular and explore the cave. This is a not to be missed trip. If your time is limited then do the 1/2 day trip. If you really want to explore the monastery, listen to the choir, enjoy a nice meal, maybe hike, ride the funicular and wait in line to view the Black Madonna, then book the all day tour. 5 star either way.
Whole tour well run - would of liked more time to do the cog railway
Very we'll organized. Well worth the money! Great tour guide and bus was very clean and comfortable.
