A varied tour with a hike, cable car ride, monastery visit and exciting information about the history and geology of Montserrat. The view from the mountain is unique when the weather is good and our guide imparted interesting facts about the place in an appealing and competent manner. A recommended tour.

Amazing tour from start to finish! Our guide was friendly, knowledgable, and fun to tour with. Had enough time to tour the monastery, including seeing the Black Madonna, do a perfectly paced scenic hike (even saw wild goats), and have some free time to roam the monastery area. Would suggest this as a day trip to anyone who visits Barcelona and definitely this tour company.

Our guide David was excellent, both during the 2-way bus trip and at the monastery. The monastery was OK but without the views, the trip up the mountain in the funicular railway and the hike back down (including a trail and 800 concrete steps), probably not worth a visit, at least for me.
