Traveling with my special needs daughter
lisamaccarrone
, Sep 2019
Traveling with my special needs adult daughter can be challenging at times. This tour was not one of those times. Unfortunately I do not remember her name, but for my daughters safety, one of the guides walked alongside my daughter the entire ride with a lead rope attached to the horse during our ride. Back at the Montserrat Monastery which was extremely busy due to a huge event that happened to be taking place the day of our visit, our guide managed to get us in and out of places that everybody else seemed to be waiting in lines to see. He also seemed to appear like magic anytime we thought we might need him during our free time.. Wouldn't have wanted to miss this tour for anything.

Beautiful monestary but absolutely freezing!!! Its high altitude so bring warm clothes like for winter. Horse ride was very basic. Slowing walking up a road. If you have experience itll be too slow for you.

Lovey but be advised about weight limit

Our tour started late due to a flat tire, but the staff was very apologetic. Things happen, no big deal. Our guide Adrian was very knowledgeable and friendly. Monsterrat was cool but we did not get to see the statue up close cause the line was about an hour. Turns out there is a 200lb weight limit for the horseback riding so my husband couldn’t go. Adrian took him to some other sites while the rest of us rode. My husband said he had a great time. Would definitely recommend. The scenery during the horseback riding was stunning!

Great! Wish there had been more time!

My only complaint is that I wish the tour had been longer since it does get a little bit rushed with the limited time. But it does mean that there's still time in the day to see some of Barcelona! The horseback riding was exciting and not too challenging, and set against the most gorgeous backdrop of Monserrat. Then the Monastery was beautiful and the tour guide was knowledgeable about all the sites. It made me want to come back just so I could take my time!

The day was amazing and the views out of this world. The guide Adrian was excellent and passionate about his job. Horse riding was excellent and finished the trip on a high. would have been good to have time to shop even if extra 30 mins. Best day of trip away by far

it was a nice horse ride definitely go...

it was a nice horse ride definitely go even if you are a beginner, it was only my second time on a horse and felt very comfortable, would have been nice if the horse ride was longer. After our horse ride we got to go to the cable car and the town of Montserrat, we had enough time to see everything and our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Transport was immaculate and comfortable. I would recommend repellent though for the horse ride as I was bitten by lots of insects. Provision of bottled water by the company would also be favorable as I was offered tap water in Montserrat for the horse ride and I then became very ill. Would recommend, just don't drink the water unless its bottled and bring repellent!
