Traveler Tips


There was quite a bit of walking/hiking around there so be sure to wear comfortable shoes.
I think it might be challenging for families with young children due to the incline in Monserrat although there were quite a few children there.
If you're looking for a good way to get outside of the city, this tour is a must.

Breathtaking
Duffy, Aug 2022
One word sums this trip up - breathtaking. We were all blown away by this trip. Montserrat is indescribable in it's beauty. Definitely something that is worth seeing.
Excellent tour guide
Shayler_L, Aug 2022
Gaspar was an excellent and super super nice. The Montserrat has very cool views. Gaspar showed us around then we have 2 hours of free time. We did the museum (8 euros person) and got to see a lot of art (if you are into that). Unfortunately the hiking trails were closed due to fire danger. Would recommend Gaspar for my tour guide again
Day trip
Mary_X, Aug 2022
We felt we were rushed through our excursion. She drove to fast on the road up the mountain to Monserrat. I would of enjoyed to be there another hour. Was very clear on instructions on what to do there and time frame at our destination . She was very nice and friendly.
Not worth the 80 - had to pay addtl on site
Maryann_E, Aug 2022
Driver & tour guide were great 1 very kind. Tour was rushed and wasn’t clear on what was happening- when we got there we had to choose between different things to attend in a short period of time and then we were asked to pay additional fees for tickets for something that should have been included in the booking fee.
Montserrat is a Must!
Anne_H, Aug 2022
Traveled very comfortably in a new spacious van which was driven by Alex, our excellent tour leader. We were able to experience most of the essential sites of this extraordinary place with natural wonders and the beauty of a sacred space. Our group of 5 wished we had made it a whole day trip instead of a half day because we would have walked the trails and explored the museum. Alex was very kind and helpful.
Beautiful Montserrat!
Roann_D, Aug 2022
Marcel was our guide and he did an amazing job! He was very punctual, informative, and answered all our questions. To us, this tournis just the perfect amount of time. We had aabout an hour and a half of free time. We picked the hike to the cross, it's a little bit uphill and about 20minutes each way but all worth it. Thanks Marcel!
Great place to see!
CARMEN_T, Jul 2022

Memorable day at Monserrat
CarlinC_L, Jul 2022
Marcel picked us up promptly and gave us a lot of history of the monastery as well as the region as we traveled the approximately 1 hour to the site. He was easy to understand and a safe driver. The setting is spectacular, interesting, and we’ll worth the time, effort, and money. I would recommend.

Our trip to Montserrat
Denise_M, Jul 2022
It was magnificent! My granddaughter and I loved Montserrat… and loved seeing the black Madonna… Gasper did a great job telling us about everything. He was very knowledgeable.
Great guide, beautiful day!
Jessica_T, Jul 2022
Joan our guide was the best. He picked us up from our hotel and gave us a very in depth tour all day. We really enjoyed this and would 100% recommend it.
Breathtaking
Rebecca_J, Jul 2022
The view from the mountain is breathtaking. The Monastery is absolutely beautiful and visiting the Black Madonna was an awesome experience. I only wish we’d had more time. We didn’t have enough time to ride the funicular and see the Madonna. And very little time to shop in the Botiga.
Montserrat - a perfect morning
Josiah_H, Jul 2022
Joan was amazing!! super accommodating and knowledgeable. we had a lot of ease with him, funny, polite, perfect english. we did the 1/2 day morning which was ideal for our group.
Montserrat saves the day
Ibifuro_O, Jul 2022
Montserrat was lovely to see. Wish we had more time. Unfortunately our trip was somewhat bungled. Firstly our timing was rescheduled without alternate options being provided or consideration to our other bookings. Secondly after accepting the rescheduled program we weren’t picked up and our calls were not responded to until we contacted Viator. We had to take a taxi to Montserrat which the tour company paid for but due to the late departure we arrived by 5pm. We were only allowed to take a few pictures on the mountain, couldn’t walk to the summit because of time. The guide, Miquel, tried to make up by being extra nice but the trip was too short (barely 2 hours) for a trip that was supposed to be for 5 hours. Unfortunately we were leaving the following morning so couldn’t make return plans. Would definitely recommend Montserrat as a most go place but not the use of the tour operator as they were very unreliable and unprofessional in the delivery of the service. 3 points because of the beauty of Montserrat.
Great day in Montserrat

It was nice to see the monastery but we only had 5 minutes inside. I recommend eliminating the half day experience if there is not enough time to enjoy the monasteryp

Great tour for everyone.
Joshua_B, Jul 2022
Maria was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. This was a perfect tour and the hike was not challenging at all! Would definitely recommend.
Beautiful grounds.
CHARLESM_B, Jul 2022
The monastery and area were beautiful. However, the tour doesn’t give you much time to see the museum, bookstore, to go up the hiking trail to the top, going up to see the Black Madona. Shuck we were better informed of timing.
