Early Access is the way to go ... we had the Monastery to ourselves for the first hour. Dont miss out on this magical place.

So beautiful and breath taking. Our tour guide gave us the basic tour which was great but being on our own was awesome to go at our own pace. I recommend this tour also because you get there before all the buses and tourists so you are able to avoid the crowds.

Great experience made more interesting by the fabulous Guide who was so informative all the way to Montserrat and back. It was so worth the 6.50am start arriving ahead of the crowds. This is one trip you should not miss

My friend and I absolutely loved this! We don't plan much when we travel, but this was one of the few things we pre-planned and it was 100 worth it. Anyone wanting to see Montserrat should book this excursion for a peaceful introduction to this beautiful Monastery. Also, shout out to Helena for being an awesome tour guide!

HIGHLY recommend getting up early for this tour! Yes, its a bit painful. But, the opportunity to get in to look around, enjoy the views and take your pics ahead of the hordes SO worth it! You have the added bonus of getting back to town with much of the day left for more exploring around the city. Great tour! Thanks, Selena!

This was our favorite tour during our Barcelona weekend, highly recommend this early access option! Amazing opportunity for photography in this breathtaking scenery. We also had a chance to explore the church, museum, sample wines and dine at the cafe. We had a wonderful experience and our tour guide was very informational.

Excellent tour and one of the most well organised I have ever been on. Yes, it is early! But it is so worth getting to Montserrat before the hordes of coaches, as we were leaving the car park was almost full and it wasn't a particularly touristy time of year. The journey takes about an hour from Barcelona and on the way stops at a supermarket/café for a rest break with time for coffee. The monastery and surrounding are absolutely beautiful. If you are booking to go soon just be aware that the cable cars are out of action until April so if you want to walk on the mountain you will have to climb up the paths yourself. I would thoroughly recommend this tour.
