Really enjoyable day trip
James_d
, Sep 2021
This was a very enjoyable day trip getting out of the city and seeing the beautiful Montserrat. We met our charming guide, Fred, at 10 and jumped on the public train to Montserrat before jumping on the cable car up the mountain. Fred was exceptionally friendly and passionate about the city and the tour and was desperate for us to have a good time. He had made some delicious sandwiches catering to our specific dietary needs. My only negative was that the whole tour was a bit rushed and seemed to leave some aspects up to chance. It was only when we got up the hill that it was confirmed we would be able to get tickets to see the shrine. However Fred kept us updated at all times and did his upmost to ensure we had a great time

A Perfect Day in Monserrat

Monserrat is an amazing place and Sebastian was the perfect guide to take us there. He has a vast cultural and historical knowledge of Spain as well as many other subjects. We had a perfect day with Sebastian and we couldn’t imagine anyone being better.

Impressive but expensive trip to Montserrat
Mike_S
, Jul 2021
We were hosted by Jennifer, a charming Latina girl from Costa Rica full of energy and power to explain everything about the Region, the People and the church. As a guide, she deserves 5-Star. The trip itself was a little bit expensive due to the fact that some attractions were still closed or on holiday like the choir of the children. Gastronomic offer in the monastery on a very low tourist level. Nature and surroundings were quite impressive.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Hello dear client. We appreciate your feedback, and we are glad that Jenny has been a very good guide. Unfortunately, due to the covid, some attractions might be modified, but everything will be back to normal soon. We do not understand what gastronomic offer you are referring to. We are very clear in saying that we offer a picnic at a viewpoint where you will eat light sandwiches, to be able to continue the hike. We hope to see you again, thank you for choosing us.

This was a wonderful tour to Montserrat. Pau, our guide, was great. He is very knowledgeable of Montserrat, local Barcelona history, and has a very good understanding of many other points-of-interest. I loved the way he interacted with each of us. He was able to relate to my son in a way that helped him enjoy the trip as much or more than my wife and me. I would highly recommend scheduling a tour with Pau. You will not regret it. Thank you!

I took this tour with my 8 year old son and I have to thank our guide Pau for giving us exceptional experience. He was on time, very professional and well informed about the monastery. We really enjoyed the children singing and overall the montserrat mountains were breathtaking beautiful.

AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE

Everything was perfect. Our guide met us on time and off we went. He was so knowledgeable and made this ancient monument come alive for us. We touched the Black Madonna and got seats to hear the boys' choir.This is a day we will remember for along time.

Not what we expected

Our tour guide was good. (Miguel) However, we did expect a different tour. We went by train to Montserrat. That was ok but not much dialogue. The tour itself was ok. We took the cable car to the top. Beautiful scenery. We visited the Abbey but it was very crowded and we didn't get to see much. There was a concert scheduled by the Children's choir but we did not get to see it. The line to see the Black (fake) Madonna was too long so we did not see that. Miguel had made some sandwiches which we enjoyed eating outside on this most beautiful day. The cog train was not running. The trip back to Barcelona was an hour standing on a very crowded train because there were no seats available. We have used Viator many times in the past. all over the world. We truly feel this trip was disappointing and far too expensive.

Hello dear guest. We're sorry it wasn't the tour you liked the most. We do not doubt that Miguel has done a good job as he is one of our best guides. Montserrat is one of the most beautiful places in Catalonia so it is very visited and there may be days with more visitors than others. This question escapes our work. With regard to trains the same thing happens, there are days in which it is more congested than others. I also have no doubt that he spent a beautiful day with Miguel. Thank you!

Montserrat Enhancements

, Oct 2019
We took this private tour with another couple. Pau, our guide, was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and accommodating. Suggested improvements: 1) It was billed as an all-day tour, but we got back to Barcelona 3:30 pm. 2) Description says visit to monastery and mini-hike. We were offered one or the other. 3) Meal of sandwiches and lukewarm water fell short of expectations. Sue Ann Hollenbeck

Hello dear guest. You had the luxury of having Pau as your guide, one of our best guides. Unfortunately there are days when Montserrat is more congested than others, and there may be a line to see the Black Madonna, which is in the Monastery. That was the reason why Pau gave you the option to make the most of the time. The tour is a 6 1/2 hour tour. We believe that it is enough time to admire each place of Montserrat. There is also the option of asking the guide to stay on your own longer, if you wish. Thank you!
