What people are saying about Montjuic Castle

Amazing!!!

The excursion was absolutely fantastic! And myself and other tourists in my group were very pleasantly surprised at how much is included in one day. You cover so much and the tour guides were very informative, friendly and provided great interesting facts (but not boring atall) they were also very helpful and gave tips on where to eat and places to see aswell. My only feedback is that I wish we had more free time walking around Montserrat as it is just truly outstandingly beautiful and I wanted to spend more time there! On a whole really enjoyed my experience and would reccommend to all.

The group was rather large, so if you're looking for a personal experience this isn't it, but it was a great way to see key sights in Barcelona and also make it out to Mont Serrat. The only thing was we were so rushed at Mont Serrat and barely had any time to get to the viewing ledge and snap a quick shot of the mountains before sprinting back to the bus (we were 5 minutes late).

Excellent tour guides!

The tour guides were exceptional! We expected to see La Familia in the Highlights tour and were disappointed that we did not at least drive by there in the bus.

the guide was very informative. she was very helpful to find me a place to get my covid test done in the weekend holidays in between tours. I really appreciate

Super like. Thank to Slavina. She is very good guide.
