Had an absolutely wonderful experience. There were only 3 of us on the tour so it was basically a private tour. Our guide, Ferran, was very knowledgeable of the history of the area and Spain. Timely pick up, great day. Would highly recommend it. We only had 1 day to tour before meetings, so this really made the trip.

Our tour guide was fabulous. He gave factual information about the sites without any color commentary or bias. He walked slowly so the whole group could stay together. Going after New Year's was a plus because it was not crowded at all. I would recommend the tour that includes Sitges-worth it.

Great to go with a small group in the early morning. Ferran was a terrific guide. The weather did not cooperate at Montserrat so we did not go up the funicular. Ferran gave us a couple of options to take it's place. We enjoyed going into the museum. Walk around Sitges after the rain cleared was relaxing and delightful. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Ferran spelling? was an absolutely incredible tour guide. It was just my family of 4 and one other person. I highly recommend this company. It is the best tour I have ever been on. He made it very custom, and we saw so many different places. If we come back to Spain we will definitely use this company again!

Our trip was amazing! Many Thanks to our guide Ferren, who made our trip a pleasant and enjoyable experience. I personally think that it was a brilliant idea to combine visit to the Monastery and coastal town of Sitges. History, easy workout, fun, and all in one day :

We were picked up from our hotel very promptly by Ferran who was a very friendly and knowledgable guide. Unfortunately the weather was against us as we had heavy rain so didnt see Montserrat in all its glory or indeed go on the cable car. However we still enjoyed our time in Montserrat. We then went to Sitges and had a lovely lunch overlooking the sea. After lunch Ferran took us on a walk round the old town before heading back along the coast to Barcelona. Would definitely recommend this tour while in Barcelona.

This tour is definitely a must-do! It was full of wonder and amazement. The monastery, mountains and scenery were breathtaking and our friendly and informative guide made sure that we didn't miss a thing. Sitges was a lovely way to round up our day. Appreciated the fact that we were in a small group.

Fabulous! Jose was our guide and offered us choices during our tour. We were never rushed. Montserrat is a must see and I recommend this full day tour so you can experience the beautiful town of Sitges for lunch on the beach in the afternoon.

Highly recommend this tour with Ferrand. An excellent guide on a well paced tour that started in the hills and finished on the coast. By starting early in the day we were able to beat the crowds and heat on Montserrat. Great restaurants to choose from for lunch at Sitges. Ferrand explained the regional specialtites so took his advice and tried some of them. Enjoyed being able to return along the coast road.
A great day out.

This was an amazing tour! Our guide was excellent as well as compassionate when my husband could not complete the hike, which Is easy for the fit person, but not for those with any health issues. My husband and I should have taken the cable car back down from the mountain viewing area, which was an option. Thanks to a kind fellow passenger and our amazing guide, the day and the tour were saved. The tour itself was well planned and well worth the time and cost.

Our guide, Ferran, was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable, helpful and had a good sense of humor. Montserrat was amazing and Sitges was a beautiful seaside resort where we had a nice lunch on the boardwalk at the beach. The only part of the tour that I felt was a bit understated was the ease of the walk down from the top of the mountain. It was downhill, but steep and slippery at times due to gravel on the pathway. This could be problematic for individuals with mobility issues. Overall this was an amazing tour and is highly recommended.

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.

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.

Absolutely wonderful! Me and my 2 boys went on the tour today along with 2 very nice ladies from Canada. Our tour guide Ferran, picked us up from our apartment at 8:15am sharp. With Ferran's perfect time keeping, we had beat the massive queue to the chapel at Montserrat. We managed to catch the boys choir too. We went to Sitges at about 1:30pm and were left with plenty of time to have lunch and explore near the seaside. My boys had great fun playing with the wave too. Ferran speaks perfect English and had explained well the history of the places. We were sent back to our apartment by 5pm. We felt like we had done a lot in a day. Highly recommended!
