This was a pleasant way to spend part of a day. Our Guide Pablo was entertaining and informative. The area is beautiful I wish we had more time to spend at the Cathedral. We went in the off season and it was quite crowded so be prepared as it is a functioning cathedral that still holds mass. Be prepared to pay extra to view Black Madonna. I believe it should be included. If I had it to do over as a first time visitor to Spain I would book this tour.

Great tour! This is a beautiful one hour drive up to the mountains in a van. Then walking tour of the grounds and basilica - amazing to see! Our group also hiked up in the mountains which was fun. (If you are not in shape, this hike is not for you). Our tour guide Richard was energetic, kind and happy. He gave great info about the area and history of Spain. Since the funicular was under maintenance, Richard compensated us with a bag of delicious, local treats! Yum! Loved this tour and part of Barcelona!

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about Montserrat and the monastery. The hike was fun and we had time to explore on our own. He offered some recommendations of where to eat, we took one restaurant he told us about and it was so good! I highly recommend this tour if you are in Barcelona and want to know Montserrat.
