Your private tour guide will meet you at your hotel or apartment to start off your experience, then you will head to the train station by public transport, where we will take the train and enjoy the Catalonian landscape on our way to Monistrol, located at the bottom of the mountain. Once there you can choose between the rack train or the cable car to get to the popular Santa Mara de Montserrat Abbey. From this viewpoint you will be able to take amazing pictures.

We will visit the Basilica and we will visit the Virgin of Montserrat, known as Black Madonna La Moreneta, a wood carving from the twelfth century, which is the patron saint of Catalonia.

During our visit to this Benedictine monastery, founded in the eleventh century, we will listen to the fantastic boys choir of LEscolania de Montserrat, one of the most famous children choirs in Europe, and the oldest (fourteenth century).

    Mark our guide was terrific. It was great having him meet us at our hotel and guide us the entire day. Not a thing to worry about and hes a wealth of information. We enjoyed a tapas lunch to top off a great day.

    Our guide was charming but didn't know much about where we were going. The lunch offered was a buffet and not so good. The views were magnificent!

    We started off from Plaza Catalunya up to the start of the cable car. Perfect travel time to discuss much more about the tour and the important facts of Montserrat.
    We had a chance to absorb much of the details because we were only 4 in this private tour and we had time to enjoy photo shoots and prayer and a lovely paella meal. Without having to rush.

    Marc is our tour guide in La Sagrada Familia and here so we're comfortable being with him. As nice as always and being so patient with us on our request even to go uphill. The best!

    We loved this tour! We were met by Marc who made our traveling day hassle free and a pleasure. He was kind and patient, very attentive to all of our needs. He had so much information and history to share with us. We were a family of 6 so he kept us moving but at a perfect pace. It was such a pleasure to have him guide us throughout the day. We finished our day with a lovely Paella lunch at a terrific restaurant. He was very in tune with our expectations and we loved every minute!
