Know More about this tour

Depart in early morning from the meeting point in Barcelona's Plaza Catalunya. Visit the Museum of Montserrat and marvel at its cultural heritage. Here you can learn all about the archeology of the East given by Mesopotamia, Cyprus, Egypt and Palestine. You can also admire old paintings from the 13th thru 18th centuries by artists such as Morales, El Greco, Berruguete, Caravaggio, among others.

When you get back to Barcelona in the afternoon you will have free time to eat at one of the many culinary options in the surrounding area (at own expense) before heading to the Cathedral of Sagrada Familia. See the facades and the interior of the basilica, and acquire essential knowledge that only your guide can give about the symbolism representing the 'Holy Family' as an expression of Christian ideology and faith through the construction in stone. In this temple you will identify an exaltation of the 'Family of Nazareth' as a model for a united family, and Christians.

  • The full day tour was amazing. Getting up early to travel to Montserrat was not good but being there before the crowds we were able to have a good look around and take lots of photos. The place itself is amazing. Would love to have gone on the funicular ralyway but it was only operating one way. The guide was very knowledgeable with a pleasant manner.
    We had a break back in town for lunch then went on the tour of Sagrada Família. What can I say? A wonderful place with lots of time to wonder around. Another guide met us and took us through the Basillica. This building certainly has the wow factor. Whatever I say cannot do it justice. Do yourself a favour, take the full day tour and be amazed,as we were.

  • Tour meeting place was easy to find and very close to public transport. Tour guide was good and she gave a great run through of Montserrat. After Montserrat we had a break for lunch separately and then met out the front of Sagrada Familia With a different tour guide for that part. Sagrada Familia is the most amazing thing I have ever seen and even though the group was bigger for it and the tour guide was hard to hear she did her best to describe all the aspects and that in itself allows you to appreciate the structure of it in great detail. Lots of fun I defiantly enjoyed this and recommend travelers to do this tour.

  • Montserrat Monastery was fantastic! Stunning view and well worth it to go there from outside Barcelona. Sagrada Familia was beautiful and had wonderful experience.

  • I usually don't leave bad reviews but the way I was treated was not okay at all. We did the first tour to Montserrat, meeting time was at 6:25am, me and my friend was there at 6:10am. Our tour guide George was kind enough and waited to the rest of the tour, we didn't leave until 7am. Even the bus driver was really nice, he let my friend use his jacket cause she forgot hers. Someone from our trip needed a wheel chair and George insisted to push the wheelchair. The tour ended at around noon, we got back to the city at 1:30ish, we had about 2 hours till our next tour to Sagrada De Familia, our meeting time is at 3:30pm. Due to traffic and us being unfamiliar with the city, we were 3 minutes late. The taxi driver dropped us off on the other side of the church, we walked around it and looked for our tour guide. It was then 3:35 when I called amigo tours and they called the guide, called me back and said they are already inside. I then requested for a later time and they said they are unable to do so, instead of sympathizing with us he gave me the biggest attitude Well ma'am you're supposed to be there at 3:30 not 3:33. I was shock by his response. It is not okay that we waited half an hour for our earlier trip and we were 3 MINUTES LATE AND THE TOUR GUIDE LEFT US? There should be at least a 10 minute allowance, you guys are dealing with tourist who doesnt know the city at all, its very rude and inconsiderate. All the other tours I did waited at least 10 to 15 minutes for the parties. I DO NOT RECOMMEND BOOKING WITH AMIGO TOURS.

  • Our bilingual guide was very knowledgeable. And she went at a good pace. We didn't feel rushed at all. The tour was amazing. It is a most for anyone. Montserrat is beautiful. Sagrada Familia- if you are going to Barcelona, you have to see this cathedral.

  • Just fantastic, a must see when visiting Barcelona

  • Excellent tour. Loved Montserrat and the Sagrata Familia a must see. Tour guides were great but had difficulty with the rather heavy Spanish accent. Highly recommend this trip.

  • Great trip. Tour guide was excellent

  • Montserrat Monastery is great, it's just that we didn't have enough time to go to funicular view due to the long queu.

    We don't recommend to go up to the tower access. There's nothing to see and not easy to go down the starway.

  • Well organized and guided.
