    Enjoyed the visit to Montserrat Monastery very much, the views were breathtaking from the top, the monastery inside was beautiful, and was pleased to see the black madona and child.

    We had a great time on the tour of Monserrat with Aaron. He was very enthusiastic and made the tour enjoyable. The views are awesome and the cathedral beautiful.

    The guide was very cheery, able to give good background as to history of Monserrat and Monastery. Very beautiful Basilica, worth the trip. Book a longer trip if you really wish to explore. We did half day, didn’t leave much time.

    We really enjoyed this trip, the Monastery has a lot of everything for everyone. It has option for trail walk, a museum, children's choir and of course the Cathedral. The operator tour Juliá didn’t explain you about it’s avoid to eat and drink in the bus, the food in the souvenir store is expensive and not really from Monserrat if you look the tags, it’s better to shop products out of the monastery, there are local seller y local products, they are cheaper and delicious.

    This tour was good but a short time in Monserrat. We wished that we had more time to admire and explore more. However, the guide was knowledgeable and professional.

    Amazing views. Incredible mountains. I couldn't believe they could build something so far up the mountain.

    Not enough time on this tour to see everything
    Maybe do a tour that lasts longer
    If time poor good tour

    The ride to Monserrat was on a excellent bus with a great guide (Gabriela) . She was informative and had good knowledge of Monserrat. She gave clear directions and was always availe for questions. Driver appears dead new as she helped guide him where to go. Everything was on time. Would highly recommend

    We enjoyed the tour immensely. Wish we had opted for the full day tour as there were many things to do on the mountain. Guide was extremely helpful.
