    My husband and I are so glad we took this tour. Montserrat is amazing. It was raining when we got there but it stopped after an hour so we were able to take pictures outside. The radios didn’t work but Roger gave his best to give us the history of the place. The driver was very skillful in maneuvering the winding road. Half a day is not enough to truly enjoy this place, I highly recommend a full day since there are so many things to do. Thank you!

    A beautiful trip to Monserrat with a wonderful guide, Miriana. I would have liked the visit to the monastery to last longer.

    Great time! You need to take this tour of Monserrat. It's a great spot within an hour of Barcelona. The history of the cave and the black Madonna is worth it

    We had a great 1/2 day at Montserrat. Our guide was terrific and the whole experience was quite nice . Great way to end 4 days in Barcelona

    The tour was as described. Our guide, Carol, was thorough, spoke three languages, and was very personable. We found the amount of time perfect for those who can't dedicate an entire day to the tour. If you want to walk to the top or take advantage of other activities, you will need to book a full day tour.
