  • This is a great combo. Monserrat was amazing. It had snowed the night before so the roads were difficult to deal with but the bus driver knew what he was doing and performed perfectly. The views are outstanding. Then the tour at Sagrada Familia was great. cut the line was key. Tour guide was excellent and knowledgeable. But it was a bi-lingual tour so it took twice as long as it needed to be. Also if people took the option to go up to the tower the rest of the group basically waited. They showed us some other stuff that was less interesting during this time but went over it again briefly for the others when they returned from the tower. I would recommend that they do the tower after the tour was done so if people wanted more free time they could have it or if they were done they could leave while the tower portion took place.

  • The trip to Montserrat was fine. Guide was nice and knowledgeable. However, having to wait over 2 hours between drop off back at Catalunya and then taking a metro to Sagrada was inconvenient. In addition, the Sagrada tour was given in both Spanish and English which meant one needed to stand through both explanations to get through the tour. The tour should be in only one language.

  • The trip up to Montserrat was lovely. I would do this leg of the trip solo and not include it with La Sagrada Familia. We were up very early to drive up to Montserrat, which took about 1 hour. We arrived sometime around 7:45am-8:00am. The bus left to return at 11:45am so it really want a full day there at all. Only about 4 hours. The tour guide took us around and did a good job but we had no time to do any of the walks. Truth be told, it was too cold regardless. But if going during a warmer season, you may want this option. Then the tour of La Sagrada Familia didnt begin until 3:00pm, in which we had to provide our own transportation to get there and just meet the guide at the site. The tour was in Spanish and English, which meant that the tour guide had to say everything twice. So the time that he was touring in Spanish, we just stood around and waited. You are much better off buying tickets for an audio tour on your own. Definitely not worth it. They should have the tours in all languages but they should not be done at the same time. Very disappointing.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • A wonderful surprise! Couldn't appreciate the early morning departure until seeing the sunrise atop Montserrat. Breathtaking views, very comfortable ride with knowledgeable and energetic guide. Sagrata Familia in it's vastness and age still contrast the traditional european cathedrals with modern art and architecture. A well run tour with private listening devises that allows everyone to hear the history even in the large crowds.

  • tour guide ok but have had better. did not feel that safe with bus driver for Montserrat. The guide for Sagrada started good very good But half way through got very very boring way too much technical could have cut it down somewhat to keep it interesting

  • Early start was good if you can get up. Finished most experiences by noon and back in town around 1.15pm. Our disappointment was that Sagrada Familia was closed at 2pm,and they cancelled last minute, so we missed getting into the place. Not really their fault but could have make more effort to contact us earlier. Would have done the Sagrada tour earlier if we had known. We had to miss it because we flew home the next morning, hopefully the promised refund is smooth.

  • It was a great tour covering Montserrat and Sagrada but with the only disadvantage of 2 1/2 hours break in between.
    I had a chance to feel the Monastery because of the early morning access as we turned up earlier than others.
    Our Montserrat guide was awesome, informative and helpful ...
    It would have been great if we had 1 1/2 more hour to visit the caves so that we would have 1-hour break rather than the 2 1/2 hours.

    Sagrada was a great building under construction. The trip guide tries his best to give most of the information about the history of the building and all.

    It's really a nice package for this price

  • 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.
