  • What You Can Expect

    Begin your tour in Plaza Catalunya, where you will hop aboard an air-conditioned bus to the National Park of Montserrat, just an hour away from Barcelona. A unique massif famous for its gothic shapes, beautiful views, and trails, Montserrat is said to be the most important mountain in Catalonia.

    Upon arrival, your guided tour consists of an extended visit throughout the Basilica and Monastery, with free time to explore the site on your own afterward. There are many activities to choose from – you may want to explore the monastery further, visit the museum, make your way to the holy cave, ride a funicular to the top of the mountain, or shop at the farmer’s market. At the end of the visit you'll attend a performance by l’Escolania de Montserrat, the oldest Boys’ Choir in Europe.*

    After Montserrat, head to the winery estate of Oller del Mas. Located in a castle dating back to the 10th century, the winery is home to 1,000 acres of land and a public golf course. Make your way into the restaurant, where you will be served a multi-course, regional menu paired with wines produced organically from the vineyard.

    Following your meal, take a stroll through the vineyards and visit the cellar for a guided tour of the estate's wines. Learn about the production process and other winemaking secrets.

    Before heading back to Barcelona, enjoy a tasting session with three organic wines paired with local cheeses. You will be returned at the end of the day to your original departure point.


    * Please note that l'Escolania does not sing on Saturdays and several dates throughout the year.

    Cancellation Policy

    Package is cancellable prior to three days from the commencement of the service.

We had a wonderful day visiting Montserrat and the Oller des Mas winery. An added bonus was getting a little Barcelona history during the bus ride. The Monserrat Basilica/Monastery is an amazing place and even though we had a good chunk of free time, there was not enough time to do everything we would have liked! You have the option to take a funicular up to the top of the mountain, take a funicular to the sacred cave, touch the black Madonna, hear the boys choir and visit the art museum. Many in our group elected to take the funicular up to the top and hike down but we took the funicular back down to be able hear the boys choir and visit the farmers market. The lunch at the winery was incredible! The food was plentiful as was the wine! The tour of the winery was very informative and we were very impressed with the tour guides knowledge! This trip was definitely a highlight of our time in Barcelona!

We had a fantastic time on this tour! Xavier was our guide and he was amazing - knowledgeable and with a great sense of humor that had us all laughing - even before the wine!

The tour was great. I particularly liked that my request for vegan food was taken very seriously and the restaurant had gone out of the way to ensure we got a filling lunch. Simon was excellent - very knowledgable and very clear in his communication. His assistant, Sasha was very good too.

This was our favorite tour in Barcelona!!!!! We had Xavier as our guide, he was so funny and entertaining and had the whole group getting along, it was like we had known each other for years. He was very knowledgeable in wine. It was a perfect tour, we cannot rave enough about this tour. The wine was fantastic, we even shipped a case back home! We strongly recommend this tour!
