It was an excellent excursion and Marco was very helpful, knowledgeable and very accommodating with our group. It is day excursion which all should do.
Thank you Marco!!

Marco was a great tour guide and gave us good tips on how to make the most of our time in Monteserrat. He had a group of mixed ages and fitness levels and made sure we all were accommodated and we all had a wonderful time. Thanks, Marco!!

We booked a tour to Montserrat (family of 4) with our guide, Nuria. The beautiful drive up to the mountains was brought alive by Nuria’s storytelling abilities and her love and passion for Catalonia really shone through. The church and surrounding area was gorgeous despite the heavy winds and we were able to really get a feel for the monastery.

Guide gave nice information, loved being picked up at the hotel, was super convient. Also he was dropping off other people to a another tour at the end of the day . It worked for the guide to drop us off at a nearby restaurant.

We had a small van pick us up at our hotel on time. That was the best part. Our guide Andrei was awful. We never explored the "Holy Cave", never mentioned the nature park and we were told if we wanted to wait in a long line we could see the Black Madonna. He talked about nothing as the line grew for the Black Madonna. We have been on many tours and for this price we should have been able ttour.more

Montserrat was such a great tour, the mountain is spectacular with tremendous views and the monastery was very interesting. Loved the local vendors with their food offerings and being able to hear the boy's choir was icing on the cake! Karles was our guide and was the very best, we were SO lucky to have him.

The tour itself was fine. However, there was NO hotel pickup. Shortly before pick-up time, Driver communicated via phone that he couldn't pull up in front of the hotel. [However, others, ie. taxis, had no problem.] Wound up meeting Driver several blocks away. I don't have mobility issues, but wow! that would have been tough for someone who did..... Hotel pickup should mean hotel pickup!tour.more
