It was an excellent way to see Montserrat. You get in just as it opens, which is excellent as you miss most of the crowds. I thought the tour of the cathedral and monastery was just about right-enough information to get a good understanding, but not too much that you felt overwhelmed. It was neat the ride the funicular train, and the hike was awesome.
Our guides were good, friendly and knowledgeable.

This tour was wonderful! It was just my friend and I with our guide headed to Monteserrat, so very private which was certainly a bonus. I and #39;m not sure if this is always the case. we saw every bit of it. We hiked to the top of the natural park for breath taking views. Make sure to hear the boys choir

Submitting this a little late, as we toured in late July 2016. However, because this was one of our most memorable excursions in the Mediterranean, we wanted to give a big shout out this outfit.
Our tour guide, Quim, picked us up in Barcelona. In a comfortable mini-van, we joined another family for the hour car ride to Montserrat. Quim excellent English was a great conversationalist and told us much about the Catalonian region.
Upon arrival, we visited the cathedral, where Quim told us the fascinating history of the Black Madonna, as well as the cathedrals fate during the Napoleonic wars. We then traveled on the funicular farther up the mountain where our hike started.
I cannot speak highly enough of what a great job Quim did. As we moseyed along, unbeknownst to us, we were slowly making an ascent up to the top-most peak. Quim would point out both easy and harder ways to climb, which really appealed to our 7-year-old daughter. He was a great storyteller about the features of the mountain, including the hermit caves, which we got to explore. When we arrived at the top, Quim jokingly confessed that he never tells people thats where they are headed, because it looks imposing, but it really is not. In huge part, this is due to Quims expertise as a climber, and his vast experience guiding groups on Montserrat. We always felt safe, and we were all in sandals! And what spectacular views of the region. So worth it!
The real litmus for this trip was our daughter, who thoroughly enjoyed herself. Quim understood how to keep her engaged and motivated to keep walking in the summer heat.
When returning to Barcelona, I would definitely return to this company for another excursion. Bravo!

Quelle belle expérience nous avons vécue avec cette excursion. Il y avait 3 guides pour les différents genres d'excursionnistes, c.a.d. les plus hardis, les un peu moins hardis et ceux qui, comme moi, ne pouvaient pas se permettre de faire de l'escalade. Notre petit groupe a bénéficié d'un guide super gentil qui a vraiment essayé de nous rendre la montée le plus facile possible. Nous avons grandement apprécié.

This tour was what I envisioned it to be, with just 3 couples and our guide/driver who knows Monserrat like he lived there for thousands of years! We started early in the day but because of traffic 2016 Merci feast, we reached Monserrat quite late even with the driver's detours. The view at the mountaintop was breathtaking. When we got to the Monastery/Cathedral, I looked up and can't believe how I managed to walk downhill that far! We did not have the time to venerate the Black Madonna closer but we attended part of the mass in Catalan and listened to the heavenly Boys Choir. If there's anything I would change, it would be the meeting place. The Tourisme street is small. It would have been better if we met at Starbucks or by Lladro since the van was parked there anyway. This is such an experience and I would recommend this to anyone visiting Barcelona.

Amazing tour, such a fabulous place. Would definitely recommend! Tour guide was knowledgeable and passionate about the area and very energetic for the whole duration. He really showed us as much as we could have seen and was clearly enjoying it as much as we were. The only things I would say is that the hike was much longer than one hour which was great for us, but worth mentioning and there really was no time to stop for even a moment - rather a lot to pack in to a half day trip. The hike itself was quite strenuous, but totally worth it. Thank you!

Our guide, Joaquin, took four of us to Montserrat, a stunning destination. He was quite pleasant and knows the monastery history and current life. Fortunately he also knew to start early in the day, because Montserrat is a popular site. Driving different directions to and from there gave us a chance to are more of the area outside Barcelona. We recommend this company.

We loved our tour guide Pere! He was extremely knowledgable about the history of Barcelona as well as Montserrat, and was eager to share with my family of 6. Pere's experience as a hiker was very evident on the trails of Montserrat. He nimbly managed a variety of terrain and showed us treasures we could not have explored without his encouragement. At the end of a long day in the mountains, Pere even made time to help our family manage a lost luggage debacle at the airport and delivered us safely directly back to our apartment. We highly recommend the experience!

This was my favorite tour of the week we did 6 total through Viator. Strictly based on that Montserrat is a must see. It is stunning and beautiful. There were only 11 of us total in the group which was awesome 4 in one van and 7 in the other van. Our guides we so attentive and informative. There is no time on your own here, you are guided 100 of the time would have preferred to hike on our own. The hiking registered about 4 miles and 75 flights on my fitbit. It took my husband and I a few minutes to adjust to the dropoffs and elevations the ride up is a bit heart-pounding.

A very nice trip. The guide drove us from central Barcelona to Montserrat in a good condition van. He was very knowledgeable of the history and natural features of the area. He helped one part of the group down the trail and returned to our members who wanted to hike a more technical portion. A highly recommended trip.

Great trip to a beautiful and very interesting place. Highly recommended. We did the monastery visit and a hike. Both were great. The hike of about 1.5 hours was beautiful and makes us want to go back for a longer hike. Tour guides were fantastic. Knowledgeable and fun. The made sure we saw what we came to see as much as they could.

We absolutely loved this tour! The funicular workers were on strike the day we toured, so we couldn't go up the mountain in that way. Our guide was amazing and went out of his way to hike with us all the way to the top of the mountain and back down in time to hear the choir sing. The scenery was beautiful and the hike was great!

Excellent hike through Monserrat. We were given the choice of spending more time inside the monastary or outside on the trails and we chose the trails. Hiked to one of the highest points with breathtaking views of the surroundings. Would do it again.

We had a most wonderful, memorable day. Montserrat, and the walk in the hills above, is well worth the visit. A huge thanks to Jose for going out of his way to make our day extra special, despite some fog and rain. I would highly recommend this company.
