Overview

Travel in comfort on an air-conditioned bus to the Colònia Güell, where you'll find the Gaudí crypt: a church where Antoni Gaudí put into practice many of the architectural solutions he later used at the Sagrada Familia. We guarantee thatyou'll have a better understanding of the world's most famous Catalan architectafter you've visited the chapel.
The next stop will be Montserrat, a rocky outcrop with extraordinary formations that will capture your attention as soon as you begin to approach. It will seem even more impressive when you ride to the top of the mountain on the rack railway, a unique means of transport.There you'll be able to visit the Benedictine monastery and kiss the Moreneta, an 11th-century wood carving of the patron saint of Catalonia, or explore the many paths inside the natural park on foot.
No other trip will allow you to enjoy nature, spirituality and architecture at the same time!

Our guide Marc was wonderful and knowledgeable. The best part of the tour was the exclusive and private access to Colonia Güell and the Monestary music school and choir performance. We had an excellent day.

This was one of the best day trips during our 2-week trip to Spain. Laila, our tour guide, was exceptional! She explained everything very well and was very much conscientious of the needs of the people in the tour. The tour is well-organized. Everyone is given a one-way bluetooth headset so that you can hear clearly the guide speaking.

Colonia Guell was pretty interesting. The church was amazing. The church is a Gaudi masterpiece that you don't hear often but it's worth a visit.

Montserrat was wonderful! I think we were lucky because there weren't too many people. It was just unfortunate that the Montserrat boys choir was on break the week we came it was a week after Holy Week and they sang non-stop during Easter week so this was their scheduled break. We had an exclusive tour of the facilities of the boys' choir school and we didn't have to line-up to see the Black Madonna. After the tour, we literally came out just beside the huge altar and had an unobstructed view of the altar and 1PM prayer.

We had a terrific tour. The balance of guided time versus free time was perfect, both at the Colonia and at Montserrat. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and enhanced our appreciation of both destinations. It was a delight to hear the boys choir sing. I recommend this tour highly.

This is a trip not to be missed. While there are a multitude of trips to Montserrat I didn't see any other trips that included Colonia Guell and the Gaudi Crypt, indeed I hadn't heard about the Gaudi Crypt but would highly recommend it if you have the chance to go. The crypt had all the components of La Sagrada Familia. Montserrat itself is beautiful. I would highly recommend the art gallery as the collection is really amazing.
If you are looking to join an organised tour to Montserrat then this is the one to get.

Montserrat - jagged mountain

The mountain peaks are jagged or serrated hence the name for this mountain. The abbey and the buildings built on this mountain are something special to behold. Beautiful views from here.
