Jennifer is the BEST! Montserrat, Barcelona.

Jennifer was a WONDERFUL guide. Great communication, right on time and extremely knowledgeable. She is a lovely person who made sure we had everything we needed, and was willing to go the extra mile to ensure we had a great time. She even helped us with directions and assistance so we were able to get back to our hotel safely and without issues. It was difficult to say goodbye at the end of the day but we will remember her for a lifetime. Jennifer, we love you!!

Our family of four had an awesome time visiting Monserrat. This was our first private tour and we loved it - all thanks to our guide Jennifer. She made it her priority to make sure we were having a great time by being extremely flexible, patient, and sharing her love of history and travel. On the train to Monserrat, our seven year old daughter felt nauseous. We decided to get off the train for a few minutes until she felt better. Jennifer was very flexible and understanding. She quickly figured out how we could get back on track and secured us taxis to get to Monserrat. As we explored Monserrat, Jennifer shared her knowledge of the history of the place and answered all of our daughter’s many questions. She was very attentive to our questions and exploring where we wanted to go around the area. One thing to note is that entrance to see the choir and Black Madonna are not included in this package. We purchased those entrance tickets separately. Given that Jennifer is one of the regular guides visiting Monserrat, she was able to accompany us to see the choir and Black Madonna. This was great because she was able to continue sharing her knowledge of the choir, the church, the Black Madonna and more! We’re so happy to taken this private tour and meeting our new friend, Jennifer! If you book this private tour, we would highly recommend asking for Jennifer. She also does a few of the walking tours in Barcelona, like the Gaudi tour.

Jennifer took us on the most amazing journey. Gratefully she guided us through the train ride and cable ride to the top. The knowledge she shared made the trip one of the most memorable tours. We experienced the local cultural celebration, a tour of the church with detail explanation of the history and architecture. The best cheese was the truffle cheese we brought home. Thank you Jennifer for making the day so fabulous.

Tour of Montserrat - Wonderful
Janice_M
, May 2022
Jenny, our tour director, was amazing. Since this was a tour just for our group of 6, she was able to communicate easily with all of us. The tram tour up the mountain and the tour of the monastery was great. Jenny was so knowledgeable. There was only 1 glitch and disappointment - our Viator description said that we would be able to hear the children's choir in the cathedral but the tour company said this is not possible due to the long lines so do not plan on having that happen. Also, it was confusing in the description between the tram and the cog train. We thought we would be taking both and the local tour company said it is one or the other and we were not given a choice. There is a lot of walking so be sure you know that before booking this tour. I would highly recommend this tour.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Hello dear Janice. We really appreciate your positive feedback about the tour and the amazing guide Jenny. We are very happy that you enjoyed the day. Unfortunately, due to the explosion of tourism we are having in Barcelona and Montserrat, the rules in the museums are changing rapidly. Until recently there was no problem to enter to see the children's choir or the Moreneta, that's why we offered in the description these visits, but unfortunately it is becoming more and more difficult to enter due to the massiveness of tourism. It is no longer easy to enter the sites and depending on the day it is possible or not. Jenny will surely have done her best but we know how these museums work. The description was corrected several weeks ago but surely you must have booked the tour months in advance in which there was another description. Regards and thanks for the review.

Awesome private tour to Monserrat Mastery
Kelly_P

Our first full day in Barcelona was spent on a 6-hour tour with Jenny from Viator Tours. We went to Montserrat the ancient monastery, 11-5pm. It was only myself and my husband and so much better being a private tour. Jennys' personality and knowledge made it perfect for us. She customized it to us, what we wanted to know, to see and how much we wanted to walk, or not! To get there, Jenny took us on a train to the base of the mountain, then on an aerial tram up the amazing mountains. There is also a cog train if you prefer. We saw so much it is hard to explain it all! Jenny explained in great detail the history, from ancient times to current days. She seemed to know any and everything about Barcelona, Spain, the Church, the Monastery, even how the mountains were formed. She explained about political and religious history as well as folklore. We saw so much, including the black Madonna, different chapels, tombs, sculptures and religious art, from 880AD-1125AD. Plus some art from local Architect Artist, Gaudi from the early 1900's. It was all amazing, interesting and beautiful! We could never have learned so much or, appreciated what we saw and what we did, alone. Jenny made the day come alive. Well worth the money. If you can, I would ask for her. Enjoy Barcelona and Monserrat!!

The ability to have a personable tour, see a lot, and never feel rushed - was amazing. Not only was the place amazing, but getting there and back was so relaxing. Our tour guide, Milena, was so organized and handled every little detail. Adjusting to conditions to keep us on time and moving in a direction to maximize all the aspects of Montserrat. She took out all the guessing of how do we, especially after the pandemic, to get passes to see everything as well as relax with a picnic in the mountains (she had sandwiches for us). All the details were taken care of so my wife and i could enjoy.

WE had an amazing day trip! it was a busy holiday day, which extended our time, but the guide was very flexible with her time and organization to use our time best. Jennifer was fun friendly and knowledgeable! The sights are beautiful. The walk was just the right length without being arduous, and it was well worth it.

This is a very nice tour led by Pedro. Very nice and made sure we were ok. A lot of walking, steps, hills, subway, etc. Really knew his details.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Hello dear Richard, we are sorry to hear that the tour was not to your liking. This is an open air tour, where there is some walking in addition to the church visits. We do not understand what it is that you did not like as the description is perfectly detailed about what you will do during the tour. We also understand that it was not the kind of tour that you would have needed. We appreciate your comment and the recognition of Pedro's good work.
