Our tour guide Josep was fantastic! He was not only full of knowledge but he was full of positive energy. Josep has the best personality to be a tour guide as he spoke about just about everything with such passion and enthusiasm.

This tour is something really worth doing. You and #39;ll love it!

Amazing Trip. WE went for Montserrat which was FABULOUS! But what we really loved was Joseph and the pleasant surprise of the Cava Cave tour! Joseph made it personal and fun. And the Cava Caves tour was by far the finest wine tour i've ever been on with a gorgeous facility, full sized samples and not one, but 2 train rides :

A gorgeous day in a gorgeous location with a skilled guide. We recommend for all!

Montserrat was a great visit! After a quick tour around, our guide gave us the majority of time to explore. There were 8 of us in the tour and the drive out of the city was a little long, so we were glad we did the full day tour and not spend all that time traveling just for a half day.

Thoroughly enjoyed the small group tour to Montserrat. Almost not enough time to complete desired activities, but a good introduction and clearly a must see, must return. Really enjoyed the Cava wine tour and tasting. While our guide/driver offered to take us to another winery, not all participants were interested...UNFORTUNATELY


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

This was a fascinating trip that includes mountains, a monastery, and a winery. The tour's early morning start allowed us to see all we could ever want to see. David, our talented and personable guide, was dedicated to making sure we were always informed on the terrain, the museums, the food/shopping options, etc. Suggest that participants come well prepared with comfortable walking shoes.

Our guide, Rodrigo is really an expert. He explained everything for us, specially on Monserrat. Meet a lot of nice people there from US, Hongkong and China. Definitely worth it

Our guide, Julia, was excellent! She was able to give us great information about both Montserrat and the winery, while knowing when to let us have some time to rest in between sites.Montserrat was beautiful and it was nice having spare time to wander by ourselves. We enjoyed the winery tour also.

This trip was wonderful highly recommended. The views and experience at Mountserrat are truly memorable. The wine tour was interesting and the tasting was nice but the mountain experience was our key takeaway.

This was a great day trip! Montserrat is not to be missed and be sure to get back from wandering to hear to boys choir. Voices from God. The winery is beautiful and interesting and the cava makes it worth the trip.

One of our best tours. Had a great guide for both places. Montserrat we were give a small tour with our guide and then left to free time, which was great. Local produce being sold there gave us the opportunity to have a picnic. Plenty of time to do what we needed. Unfortunately the boy choir were not there as they leave September every year.
The Cava tour was a surprise. This was really interesting. We were handed to the guide from the Cava House and he was knowledgeable and entertaining. Would recommend this tour.
