Neither English nor Spanish were our tour guides first language (she was Russian), so giving information seemed like a struggle; and because of that we didn't get much. In the 45 minute drive to Monserrat, it would have been helpful if she'd outlined our options so we could have gotten to do the things we wanted. By the time we realized we weren't going to get any real information following her around (and we couldn't get into the cathedral or see the Black Virgin until 12:30 because some special event was taking place), we only had enough time to go up on the funicular but not walk out to the point, or walk down from the top. I think we would have been happier, and gotten more out of the visiting Monserrat, if we'd gotten transportation and a guide book.
Booked through Viator yes, I was a little lazy if I would have searched for travel agents I hope I would have found Julia. I booked half day morning tour. Modern clean bus, excellent bus driver...not a fan of bus travel driver was the BEST! Very good tour guide knowledgeable Thank you Laura for a nice trip. 9:15am show time, confirmation ticket came with easy instructions where to show up. Counter staff at Julia were nice, just had to check in really didn't have much dealing with them. Only problem with tour, arrived at Montserrat around 10am or so made our way to Basilica 10:30am-12pm Basilica and door to Black Virgin closed till 12pm!! Thought that a little strange, so you just walk around kill time till noon, then meet tour guide at 1:15pm.
This tour is the perfect combination of a guided tour and time to explore Montserrat on your own. Our guide Ana was very friendly and knowledgeable, she gave information on the drive and on a short tour when we arrived in Montserrat. We had wanted to be able to take the funicular to the top and hike back down and we had plenty of time to do that. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants some flexibility to explore Montserrat!
En general la visita a la montaña me gustó, sin embargo con la empresa que lo llevo a cabo estoy disconforme, ya que se ofreció autobús con aire acondicionado y eso nunca lo recibimos, envié un correo con la queja y quedaron en devolverme el 25% de la compra, con resultado que la devolución nunca llegó a mi cuenta y la empresa nunca más me volvió a responder los correos electrónicos.
