An experience not to skip!
Danielle_F, May 2023
Absolutely breathtaking. Seeing this area should be a must for anyone visiting Barcelona. I would highly recommend this tour. Even though it is a decent size group bus tour, you are divided into smaller groups. Our guide Marcel was excellent. He was full of information and is obviously very passionate about Barcelona and Montserrat. The winery in the afternoon was delicious and a great way to top off a wonderful day. Marcel continued being awesome with his great understanding of the wines and the winery we were at. Highly recommend
A Must Do Trip!
Taylor_B, May 2023
We had the best trip with our amazing host Marok. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, fun, and friendly throughout this tour. He had great insight and storytelling upon our visit to each site. We loved getting to see the Basilica, the views from the mountains, and of course the wine and tappas at the winery! I would HIGHLY recommend this trip to anyone visiting the Barcelona! It was definitely a highlight of our long weekend. Me and husband felt we got to do, see, and drink so much for the price this was! Not mention the amount free-time to explore on our own was fantastic. Don't miss out on this tour! Thanks again to Marok for making such a fun day!
Unique experience of history, religion, and breathtaking views
Rod_F, May 2023
Highly recommended! There were 3 tour guides on the bus and I was in a group with Fran who was super knowledgeable. Montserrat is gorgeous, with impressive architecture and lots of history, religion, and breathtaking views. I could have easily spent more days exploring everything. The winery we went to after, Oller del Mas, was equally impressive and the tapas and wine were good.

Patricia_B, May 2023
It started out very disappointing. We were on an old dirty bus that was full of 65 people and several of the chairs, including the one. My husband was in the was broken about an hour later we arrived at Monsarrat from then on it became a beautiful experience. We broke into our smaller group and we had a decent bus coming back. They need to retire that old bus or do something different. sitting in a broken chair for that long on the bus is outrageous and disappointing.
Views and vino
Kara_Q, May 2023
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our day at Montserrat and the vineyard! Our guide Vito was friendly and full of information! We loved the beautiful views and the wine tasting !! We got to enjoy the local cheeses with our friends which was so fun. Highly recommend!

Ann_D, May 2023
Montserrat is a beautiful site to behold. The basilica is beautiful and the property is easy to navigate. Our tour guide, Guille, was pleasant, knowledgeable, lively, and very accommodating. She provided much information about the basilica and was very helpful. The wine tasting tour was very pleasant.
Monserrat and Winery
Kelly_H, May 2023
Our tour started with the most amazing, knowledgeable, personable guide, Anays. She shared so much history that really brought Barcelona to life. Montserrat was beautiful and the views were breathtaking. The winery and its history was worth the trip, not to mention the wine itself was delicious. I highly recommend this tour and especially if you are lucky enough to have Anays as your guide.
Best tour of Spain!
Susan_G, May 2023
What a great day with Toni, our tour guide! Started on time, the bus ride was about an hour and we were informed and entertained the whole way, learned about Spain’s history, what to look for when we got there, etc. He then took us into the basilica so we could see everything, then about an hour of free time, he pointed out several things to pay attention to as well…then, off to the winery, had tapas, tasted 3 different wines with our tapas, then about 40 minutes to get a full glass ( or two) before heading back. It was a really great experience all around!

Excellent itinerary and tour guide. The monastery was excellent and tasting wine at Oller del Mas est. in 964 was a great experience.
Amazing tour guides and experience!
Jason_R, May 2023
I've been doing tours for the past two weeks, and the tour guides here were the best I've experienced! Amazing sights, wines and company! Tip: if you are doing the tapas tour, bring water and snacks for the trip.
Great way to spend the day.
Lori_F, May 2023
Fantastic day. Anays our guide was wonderful. She knew so much about the history of the area and is studying to being a winemaker - she has so much passion for what she does and a sense of humour. The day was cloudy and rainy but we enjoyed it so much.
Leigh_A, May 2023

David_M, May 2023
Dan and Gus were fantastic tour guides and the amount of time we were at each location was great. It stated it was a half day tour leaving at 8:45 but lasted pretty much all day returning around 4:00pm. would have been a problem if we had other activities reserved later in the day
Wonderful experience.
Burk_D, May 2023
We loved this experience. Montserrat was wonderful and so was the wine tasting. Marcel did a really good job of giving us the background and history of everything we saw. He was great!
Beautiful day in Montserrat!
Abbey_B, May 2023
This experience was wonderful!! Our tour guide Gus was fun, laid back, and super knowledgeable. Montserrat was so breathtaking. This trip is a wonderful way to spend the day! Thank you Gus!
We would highly recommend this trip and Gus!
Patrick_f, May 2023
Gustavo was our guide. He gave an excellent narration of the journey and we would enjoy touring with him again. We started at Monserrat and gave us a tour, described the various places to go, and sent us on our own. However he took us and another family to light a candle. So much do there—we’re going back. The wine and tapas was organized perfectly
Significant Monastery and Great Wine
Jay_M, May 2023
The breadth of the monastery and its history was explained well. Enough time was allotted. The winery visit was excellent with the tapas and wine tastings. Good use of my time.
An odd tour
Simon_P, May 2023
This trip was strangely organized. The first part was travel, which was predictable given that you have to get there but then the next 45 mins was a tour of the buildings in Montserrat, eg here is the cafe, this is the bathrooms, there is the funicular. Very little value add over a map. Then we had an hour and a half of free time to wander the buildings we were just shown. Finally we were taken to the church and had a colossal 12 minutes to go round it. Then on to the bus to the winery. Surprisingly it was the tour guides who explained the winery and led the wine tasting rather than winery employees, which meant that they didn't always have the answer to questions. The tapas came with the wine tasting and I think was designed primarily to stop the wine going to our heads as we had not eaten since we left Barcelona. Again some more free time to quickly try some other wines and then back on the bus back to the city. It felt like there was very little time on the tour and most of the time we either in transit or being left with little guidance. Maybe the problem was that the church was not open for most of the time we were there due to services but in which case this wouldn’t have been a surprise so don’t do the tour at that time. It just felt rather disorganized.
Extraordinary Day!
Melissa_C, May 2023
Monserrat Mountain was absolutely beautiful! The Basilica was stunning to see. Our tour guide Vito was wonderful! Very knowledgeable and fun!! Our final destination to the Oller del Mas Winery was fabulous. We highly recommend this tour.

Our guide, Nuria was wonderful and very knowledgeable. Wine was good, lunch was delicious. Drive there made my mom a little cat sick with the winding but that is unavoidable. Just adding for others awareness.
