Flavio was an excellent guide! A great storyteller and very patient with questions and wandering guests. We weren’t able to complete the hike as the fog rolled in and obscured any views but the parts we did were still worth seeing. Would definitely recommend.

Such a great day. At first I was a little concerned that the guide’s English wasn’t going to be great. But once I got used to her accent, I loved her. Paula was an absolute sweetheart and did everything she could to make the trip a great one. Unlike some guides whom you feel are just playing it for the tips, she was genuine and sweet. Montserrat is beautiful. The monastery is stunning inside and a complete surprise. You just don’t expect something on a mountain in the middle of nowhere to be so ornate and beautiful. We have kids who are 13, 15 and 18, and they kept commenting how much fun they had. So glad we did this trip.
