Jordi met us at our hotel promptly and began what turned out to be an incredible day! Jordi knew all of the tips and hints for the transit systems that took us to Montserrat. Without his guidance, we would have been left in the dust! As it was, we were in the front of the gondola that took us up the mountainside to the town of Montserrat and had the best views! He was very knowledgeable about the history and he made sure we had the shortest wait to see the Black Madonna and make our wish. He also guided us in the church to witness the amazing performance of the boys choir. Afterward, Jordi took us back into the city for a fantastic lunch. It was an unforgettable day made perfect by our guide Jordi!

I busy day but our guide Jorge was professional and personable and kept us moving and informed. A wonderful way to see Montserrat and sample some of the local food and culture. Our tour ended with a lovely paella dinner at a Barcelona restaurant. A most enjoyable day.

This was one of the best tours we've ever done. Our guide, Jordi, picked us up at the hotel and took us by subway and train to Montserrat where we rode the cable car to the top. Jordi was extremely knowledgeable and we very much enjoyed spending the day with him. We gained so much insight into Montserrat but also Catalunya and Barcelona. A very interesting person! We were totally enchanted by the boys choir! The church is so beautiful. We enjoyed a lovely coffee and local pastery at the monastery and later enjoyed a wonderful lunch. We very much enjoyed this tour!
