This is a great tour. You do have to wake up early, but you get there well before the tourists and you get plenty of free time to explore. I would definitely recommend this tour.

It was worthy to wake up early and go to Monserrat...We got there with no crowds and we were able to see the Monastery, Church and the Black Virgen.
It was wonderful to be by ourselves in this amazing place.
I recommend this tour to everybody who wants to visit Monserrat.

Early access - no crowds in the morning and walked straight to Black Madonna without hassle and with ease.
Great to take pictures and enjoy the Monastery with minimal people in the background.

Had free time we used this time and took the funicular Sain Joan extra to go further up the mountain, to see even more impressive views of Montserrat from above and the vast mountain range from a different vantage point.

Great tour and great day trip! Amazing place - so glad we saw it! Our tour guide was informative, interesting, and kept a nice pace. The tour bus left on time and was comfortable. We enjoyed touring the monastery, but also loved walking to the cross and seeing all around the area. We took the cable car up and walked back down to the monastery. Wonderful tour. Bring snacks because it is a long tour and there is no time for lunch until after the tour ends.

This was an excellent tour with an excellent guide. The mountain ride was awesome. Unfortunately the early arrival did not allow us to use the aerial tram as it opened an hour laterm. Reasonable amount of time to walk around on our own. Unfortunately the boys choir was not present as it was Easter weekend, however our tour guide had the bus driver play their CD on the way back.

Do the early access tour if you have a chance. Montserrat is a beautiful sight but to be there before any crowds, the sun had just come up and there was a mist in the valley. So peaceful and so worth getting up early for.

We really enjoyed this tour. The meeting location is very easy to find and we left right on time. Montserrat was beautiful. The tour was good, the tour guide was very informative. It was a very cold morning, but we'll worth a few extra layers! There was free time to use as you pleased, we decided to take the funicular to the top of the mountain and go for a walk, this was a great choice. The only thing we would change is more free time is needed, there isn't enough time to see everything with such a limited schedule.
