This tour was amazing from start to finish!!! We were greeted by a friendly staff and the appointed time. The bus ride was smooth and the gal giving the talk was great. Once at Montserrat we broke off into our groups and we were lucky to have Jordi who was a world of knowledge! Grateful for the free time to hike and listen to the boys choir. Lunch was amazing and the staff went out of their way to cater to my vegan needs. Then the wine tasting. Again Jordi did not disappoint with his knowledge of wine. Great tour day. We also had a great group of people on our tour. Thank you.

We had wonderful guide, Luis who is very knowledgeable and experienced. I was happy to have enough free hour in Monserrat listening to the quoir. Most of all, wine and food was so good. It was very relaxing enjoyable time. Surely I do recommend this trip - wonderful full day excursion from Barcelona!!!

Wanted to see Montserrat painlessly and chose this trip. Meeting up was seamless, guides were personal, humorous, and knowledgeable, travel was done in comfort, and did a variety of things in one day. Highly recommended. Worth the money.

This full-day tours is excellent. Our guide, Merkat, was great, explaining what to expect on our trip from meet-point to the monastery. Once onsite, we led us around the area, pointing out the many points of interest. We then has much free time to explore specific points of interest to us. Then, we boarded our bus and drove to the winery for lunch and wine-tasting. This experience far exceeded our expectations!!
