Pep, our guide, made this trip a real treat. We were part of a large tour that they divided into 3 groups. Pep made sure we all introduced ourselves and shepherded us masterfully thru a beautiful 35+ generation winery where we sampled several wines and toured the estate. After that the bus climbed up the mountain to the top of Montserrat where Pep helped us explore the many options we had for our free time. We chose to see the black Madonna and hike out to see the cross at the peak of the mountain...stunning views everywhere you looked. Lunch was also provided and we had the chance to dine with Pep who told us more about history of the region. Montserrat is a must see. Truly a wonderful day.

Both parts of the tour were an awesome experience. The winery at Oller Del Mas was significant for its history and present day operations. What a scenic spot, not to mention the fine wine! Montserrat is a gem of the region - the stunning location and religious significance make this a special place. Most of all, the tour was made truly memorable by Albert , our guide. A veritable encyclopedia of knowledge, Albert was friendly, informative and funny. He was very fluent in English. My entire family really enjoyed this tour.

The entire tour was excellent, my only comment would be that the train from the lower lot would have been nice to see the scenery.

My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Oller Winery and Montsserat this past Tuesday. Albert did a fantastic job in providing just the right amount of information about Barcelona, the winery and the monastery. He gave us good advice about taking the Funicular first and then coming back to visit the Black Madonna. By doing this we did not have to wait in line at all! Well done Albert! The lunch was much more than we had expected by being served and waited on.. Thank you for making a memorable experience for us!
