Tour guide was lovely. Very nice and accommodating! Love that it was a small tour. Comfortable van. Was really happy to stop in sitges. Was way nicer than I expected. The time of year is cold but no crowds or lines at all. Was lovely!
Beauty cannot be explained but must be lived with the naked eye. And for that reason, Montserrat and Sitges are worth a visit!
Our tour guide Ferran arrived at our hotel at 8:15 am. My friend and I, we were the only ones.
On our way, Ferran took the time to explain the history of Barcelona and we also saw the official residence of the King and Queen of Spain during their visits to Barcelona.
At our arrival to Montserrat, we went straight ahead to see the statue of the Virgin Mary and infant Chris. - Virgin/Lady of Montserrat must be seen. The reason of her color I wont share it because it is best to hear it from Ferran :-. Ferran allowed us to take our time inside the chapel, to put candles, etc. - Beating the long line its important if you want to enjoy everything. -
After we took the funicular ride to the top of the mountain and we had a breathtaking views of the valley. I took great panoramic pictures.
We went to Sitges, and Ferran recommended great restaurants. We ate at a restaurant called Yamuna, facing the sea. Amazing paella and great appetizers. - After Ferran explained the history of Sitges, why different street names, how it was built, the history of Bacardi, Cannon overlooking Sitges, listening the sound of the sea, Sitges film festival, etc.
Instead of going back to our hotel, Ferran was extremely nice to drop us to Plaça Espanya so we can witness the performance of the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc. -
----- Montserrat and Sitges: Highly Recommend!!!! ------
P.S: Thank you Ferran for everything.

Montserrat was simply amazing,our guide Mark was the best. he was very informative and knowledgeable. Sitges was equally a great part of the tour and we had a wonderful lunch at the Argentine restaurant and walked around Old Town. Would really recommend this tour.Mark was fantastic. Thanks,Steve
Great guide-very interesting place. Easy hike down mountain not so easy and very long. Should offer option of taking tram back down. Otherwise a great tour.
There was only myself and my partner on this tour. It was wonderful that the guide picked us up from our hotel and there was no one else!! Guide was knowledgeable and courteous. Brought snacks and water for us on the trip. Montserrat is awesome. Not to be missed.
Many thanks to our guide Ferran for this wonderful trip. My friends love the views from the top of Montserrat and I deeply appreciate the Black Virgin statue. And all of us love our lunch at Sitges just beside the beach.
This full day tour was amazing!! The trip to Montserrat was fantastic! The mountain itself is a sight to be seen and the monastery is gorgeous inside and out!! I went with my two teenage daughters and they loved it! The funicular up the mountain is definitely something you should do, as the view from the top is spectacular you can see everything!! Also i would highly suggested walking down the mountain paths as our tour guide suggested as it is a very easy walk anyone could do it, and the scenery is definitely worth it. I would recommend this tour for families as everything is organised for you and it makes it really easy and enjoyable tour. Sitges is also a gorgeous place to see and have lunch, would definitely recommend going to see it!
Awesome and beautiful trip! Our guide Ferrán was very informative, professional and patient. After the hotel pick-up, we began our journey to Montserrat. After visiting the monastery, we took the cable car to the top of the mountains. The views from the top are breathtaking. We hiked to some ruins on the side of a cliff, and then proceeded to hike downhill to the monastery, enjoying the landscape and sights 30 min hike. Bring comfortable shoes for the hike! After Montserrat, we went to Sitges, where we had lunch right along the beach. After lunch, Ferrán gave us a walking tour within the city, where we enjoyed the small and beautiful streets filled with shops and restaurants. Overall we had a great experience and we fully recommend this tour.
Our guide was Mark. He arrived at our hotel pick-up promptly. Mark was friendly, informative, enaging and fun. We enjoyed the tour of Montserrat. The ride up the mountain to the monastery is beautiful. It was very interesting to see the basilica and the virgin with baby. The funicular ride to the top of the mountain offered breathtaking views of the valley. The hike down the mountain gave us a chance to imbibe our surroundings and take photos. We next went to Sitges, a beautiful coastal town. There we ate a wonderful cafe lunch of fideoua, followed by a stroll along the beach wall. Mark gave us an informative history of the town. We couldn't have asked for a better tour and day.
