My wife and i did the full day option and were amazed on how knowledgable our tour guide Luis was, he really made the difference. Luis was interacting with the whole group trying to integrate everybody and was so funny too. The tour is a must the scenery Is beautiful and the wine is good. If you are in Barcelona i highly recommend this tour.

¡Hola Roberto! Thank you so much for your nice words! Luis will love to read them :) The whole team is very committed to what we do, and we all give our best to make sure you enjoy the experience! Just explaining what we know is not enough, we want to make everyone see and feel how beautiful, special and fun our culture can be, and of course to feel included as part of a small family for one day! Many thanks for your review!

This vote goes to my excellent small group leader, Marta Fontanet. Thanks for the energy, fun, authenticity and openness in leading the small group. Thanks for the recommendation to visit the Tibidabo. I visited the next after the trip and enjoyed the beautiful sunset and saw Monserrat from that vantage point. Gracias and "bravo"! ;)

Gourmet Wine Tasting?? not really STAY AWAY
Elizabeth_C
, Dec 2021
This is a classic tourist trap. Please stay away. I book this experience for me and a friend and I invited 2 more friends. I have so many regrets to have recommended them to go with us. The wine was less than good, we weren't able to drink it because it was so bad and we are not picky! The food was ok but It took a long time to be served, time that we could have spent in Monserrat. While having dinner they give us 1 glass of wine that was about 1/3 empty, I understand wine servings are not full, but these glasses were almost empty, they offer us to sell more if needed. After that, we went to a winery that was more an of a tourist trap, wine was horrible, it was a little of wine but we didn't care because it was really difficult to drink. I'm sure that there are more and better experiences that you could book. stay way

Hi Elisabeth, Thank you very much for evaluating our experience and giving us the opportunity to respond to you on a public channel such as Tripadvisor. First of all, I like to apologize for not having met your expectations on our tour. Our goal as a company is to make sure that each one of our customers ends up with a positive feeling of our tour and it is very clear to see that with you we have not achieved that, so just as much as I did it on private I would like to apologize to you on this public channel. Even so, I believe it is regrettable that you accuse us of being a tourist trap after the emails that we have sent privately, in which we did not only apologize, we did also offer you to adapt our price so that you do not feel cheated. Do you think that's the attitude of a scam company? Regarding your friends on the tour, I honestly do not understand what problem they had. They bought wine at the winery and told the guide that they were very happy with the tour, but even so, that is not enough as we still think that we have failed you as a company since your rating of one star shows that we have not been able to connect with you at all and I do reiterate my apologies. Regarding the complaints made in your review, I would like to clarify several points: -All our tours have a fairly accurate description of the time we spend in Montserrat, if you want to stay longer than what we proposed in the itinerary, unfortunately we cannot help you. (Still, I don't think you will find a company that spends more time on average on their tours in Montserrat). -In our tours we do not want drunk people, and that is why we limit the amount of wine served in the restaurant. Right now we offer one bottle for every 4 people and this was the amount that was served to you in the restaurant, as we know that later on the wine tour there will be another 3 glasses of wine. Even we consider this a fair amount of wine, we understand some people have a higher tolerance, so offer you the possibility of order an extra glass with an small additional cost. -Regarding the winery you visited and its wines. You visited the Oller del Mas Winery, a winery with more than 1000 years of history, where there is a team of more than 30 people working every day to provide a high quality product. This winery has been chosen as the best wine tourism project in Catalonia 2020. While here in Catalunya we have some of the most important wineries in the country competing for this award. Oller del Mas among others has received the following awards: -Arnau Oller (3rd wine you tasted) is awarded on Vivino as Top World Wine, better than 99% of the wines in the world, besides that is recognized as Vi de Finca, probably the most import award you can have in Catalunya. 92 Parker Points. -Bernat Oller: (2nd wine you tasted) This year is being awarded with the Gold Medal as the best Crianza Wine in the Vinary competition and has received the price of "Best ecological wine" on the same competition. This wine also is awarded at the Gilbert & Gaillard Medalla d’Or +90 points and has received a 9.3/10 at the Guide "Vins de Catalunya" and 90 points Parker. The Rose Wine (1st wine you tasted) has a rate of 9.43 at the Guide "Vins de Catalunya" Besides this wines you taste, you also were offered to taste as optional some wines like Picapoil Negre (93 points -Parker) and also a delicious 201 Orange wine, a wine produced with a variety called Malvasía Manresana. (We are proud to be the ONLY winery in the world to work with it). This first 3 wines were included on the tasting and the optional ones had a little extra cost, but that it is completely voluntary and while some people want to try some of these products some others are fascinated taking pictures with probably the best possible views of Montserrat you may have. We are proud of letting people choose in our tours what they like the best. We do fully understand you don't like our wines, liking wine or not very often is a matter of taste and is completely fair, but your comments were made with the only intention of hurting us. We are 100% sure our products are fare, honest and technically perfect. You may not like them, but saying “wine was horrible” is just not true. Anyway, I really hope that the city of Barcelona has not disappointed you as we have disappointed you and I wish you happy holidays. Best regards Víctor Janer Operations Director

¡Hola, Victoria! Thank you for recommending our tours! Marta will be happy to read your kind words :) Castlexperience’s tours are a great option for those who want to disconnect from the city as well as keep on discovering the local culture and have a funny and relaxed time! Oh, and to have wine too! The guides of our team are local, so they not only know about the history and culture of this region, but they also live it on a daily basis! And they are very enthusiastic about it :) Thank you for stopping by!

Money well spent, highlight of my trip.

Absolutely amazing! If I ever visit Catalonia (Barcelona) again I WILL do this tour. It is DEFINITELY worth the money. The tour guides had a great sense of humor and made the experience enjoyable. I can’t remember my guide’s name unfortunately but he’s half Spanish and half Mexican. He was hilarious and very knowledgeable about the history of Catalonia. This tour did not only have great views but also I learned a lot. I’m having trouble uploading photos so I regret I can’t show exactly the tour but I just wanted to say this tour was honestly the highlight of my trip to Barcelona. I was on the fence since I’ve never paid this much for a tour but I’m glad I did. We got to see the mountainside, vineyards, visited a farmers market (got me hooked on goat Brie!) and a very famous church with a lot of history. Only downside was because of my allergy to nuts I couldn’t have the tiramisu cake they provided for dessert 😭 and instead had a bowl of grapes instead (the grapes were delicious though!) There is a slight little hike for some of the views so I would just wear comfortable shoes! They provided transportation from downtown Barcelona to and from so it was a very convenient.

The balance of time...
Nancy_B
, Nov 2021
The balance of time between Montserrat and the winery was bad- we were really rushed at Montserrat (slightly less than two hours there) and then were just sort of hanging about at the winery (four hours or so) at the end.  It was frustrating.  Also, the bus didn't have alot of leg room.  And I'm only 5'8".  Highlights:  My guide Marta was super knowledgeable both about the history and the wine, and really funny.  Lunch was delicious.  Montserrat was gorgeous.  But I'd tell friends to find a tour that just went to Montserrat so they had longer there- I wouldn't recommend this tour.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Hello again, Nancy! We are very sorry to read that we did not meet your expectations. We think that there is always room for improvement and this is the best way to know what we need to improve. Because of that, we really appreciate your honest comments. Regarding Montserrat and its free time, we had a tour that offered 2 hours of free time after the guided tour. However, due to the consequences the pandemic had in our company, we had to change some itineraries and schedules and we are not operating that tour at the moment. We hope to start operating it again next year if things continue to be stable regarding the global pandemic. I am sorry you did not have the opportunity to join that tour since, regarding your feedback, it would have been the perfect match for you. Being said, we really appreciate your honest feedback and we hope we can welcome you again any other time and delight you with the beautiful tours that we are use to do. Thank you again for your feedback and for joining us on tour :) Best wishes,
