  • What You Can Expect

    Begin your tour in Plaça Catalunya, where you will hop aboard an air-conditioned bus to the Natural Park of the Mountain 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 have the chance to attend a performance by l’Escolania de Montserrat, the oldest Boys’ Choir in Europe.*

    After Montserrat, head to the estate winery of Oller del Mas. Located in a castle dating back to the 10th century, the winery is home to 1,500 acres of land and a public golf course. Make your way into the restaurant, where you will be served a multi-course, regional menu.

    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.

I have to say it was a fantastic day trip in every way. Jordi was exceptional. He was the perfect host and guide. Great knowledge and a super sense of humour. Certainly a fabulous day to remember. Highly recommended. Well worth every cent.

The tour is value for money. The stay in montserrat is too short though. The food is very good but too many flies in the restaurant.

we had a wonderful time, very informative, pick up and drop off was safe and easy, lunch was delicious and the wine tour was excellent.
we enjoyed the 2 hours - of alone time to choose our activities, but the tour Montserrat was the best, Carol our guide was very patient, friendly and has a sense of humour. Enjoyed it a lot.

This is fantastic. And our tour guide Jordy was terrific - very knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. I'd highly recommend taking plenty of time to take the funicular up to see the views and enjoy the hike. Wine was good - not great. Tour of the old castle and the lunch were excellent. And a fun and diverse group of people. I highly recommend this tour.
