Very organized tour. Booked on-line and met at the designated area. We traveled via coach bus to Monserrat (approximately 1 hour). Pol did the tour of Barcelona on the way to Montserrat and it was very informative. He was articulate and funny. Beautiful countryside and efficient way to travel there. Luis was our guide for the remainder of the tour and was amazing. He had tremendous knowledge of Montserrat. We walked in to Montserrat monastery/Basilica as he gave us an overview of Montserrat, including the history and architecture of the Monastery and Basilica. In addition, we had time options of exploring the area including the Museum (with pieces by Casas, Degas, Renoir, Picasso, Monet, Dali), Basilica and Black Madonna, hike to the Cross, Funicular, and shops and local farmers' market/restaurants. Although we only had a half day tour, we could have easily spent 1-2 days there. Our return trip was a 15 min train ride the remainder was by bus back to Barcelona.

The tour started on time and the guides are just so informed about Gaudi and Barcelona. Thats what made the tour experience memorable cause we got to learn things from locals themselves.

Dont miss this activity its worth the time and money Only the weather was not helpful on our trip. Other than this all good and excellent The guide was perfect

You have 15 minutes to be there, and it works really good, there is no line at all and the Sagrada Familia is just incredible.

Loved it Nou Camp was amazing , hotel Gran Havana fabulous & so central
