Traveler Tips


  • "Taking this tour leaving Barcelona at 10 am and getting up to the Monastery at 11:30 - 12:00 in tourist season will not allow you time." See review
  • "Do note that there is only ONE winery visited and you get around 4 half-glasses so it's not that much of a tasting exactly." See review
  • "We usually avoid large group tours, but this tour keeps the group size small enough to enjoy." See review

Monserrat

This was an excellent tour. We were visiting Barcelona for our honeymoon and wanted to see some attractions outside of the city. Our guide Luis and he was fantastic. He was very informational and nice. The bus was comfortable and clean. The tour was fantastic and informational. Due to COVID, no large crowds, so we are able to see everything including the black Madonna. We had ample time to explore the basilica abs surrounding areas. The vineyard was amazing. Great wine tasting and lunch. I would definitely do this tour again. Ask for Luis!!

My daughter and I enjoyed this tour so much. We were lucky enough to have had the chance to hear the boys choir sing during our visit. Our tour guide Merak was very informative and entertaining. He also gave very useful tips on how we could spend our free time at Montserrat. The wine and tapas included in the tour were also very good. Overall a great experience. I highly recommend!

The views were magnificent as well as the history. The tour guide was excellent. Throughly enjoyed the wine tasting and tapas. Recommend NO children under 8 on future tours.

Hi there! Many thanks for your recommendation :) We are glad to read it you enjoyed the tour with us! Combining beautiful places full of history like Montserrat with local gastronomy plus constant amazing views, doesn’t sound bad at all, right? We believe one of the keys to make this experience great is through the balance of beauty, culture, art and nature! And there is always room for wine! Regarding children under 8 on tour, we always try that they have a good time, but is truth that sometimes we succeed and sometimes we don't :P We will try to do better next time Happy New Year!

Highly recommend this tour! Had a beautiful day visiting Montserrat & having a wonderful lunch and wine tasting. Luis was our tour guide, and he was so friendly and knowledgeable! My 2 friends and I really enjoyed this tour, and we all agreed that Luis was the perfect guide. Highly suggest dressing warmly-Montserrat was quite a bit colder than Barcelona!
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
¡Hola! Luis will love to know how much you enjoyed his tour! The activities of our tours are meant to be enjoyable, fun and informative! Nature, history and wine make the perfect recipe for a great day :) And even greater if we add the company of awesome guides like Luis! And yes! Thank you for recommending others to dress properly at this time of the year. Barcelona has great weather but is still winter and people seems to forget it :p Thank you for sharing your experience with us!

Pol was a great guide, and very knowledgeable. The tour moved at a good pace and it was a great experience. The wine tasting was nice, my only critique is that the tapas were so so. The cheese with honey at Montserrat are a must try and delicious!
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
¡Hola Ida! First of all, thank you for your kind words about Pol! We are a small team and we try hard to make things work, so we’ll make sure to pass your kind words on to him ;) We truly appreciate you taking the time to give us some honest feedback. We take our client satisfaction very seriously and we are sorry that we didn’t reach your expectations with the tapas. We will try to see if something happened that day because normally this is not the feedback that we receive about the food. Thank you very much and come back soon!

Relax, nice day with nice tour guide, lunch and wine
Pedro_O

Really nice day. If you can, choose the lunch option. It is delicious and it includes the appetizer, main course, and dessert. The restaurant service was really nice. Monserrat is really pretty. Try the bread that is prepared by the nuns (delicious!). You are going to spend like an hour exploring. It is a short time, but for us was more than okay. Tony, our tour guide was knowledgeable and really nice. The wines were good. I really like two of them. Just to be clear, you are going to spend a lot of hours on this tour (but it's worth it).

Dear Pedro, Thank you very much for your review and recommendation. It is nice to notice you enjoyed your visit with us. We are proud about your comment by listing some of the positive aspects from our tour that you enjoyed the most, like the tour itself, the lunch and especially our guide, Toni. I will personally transmit your review to him Thank you again and we hope to see you soon. Best regards
