Perfect day trip!
Callie_H

We had a great time on this excursion and felt like it was the perfect amount of time. Jordi was a great guide and gave us about a 1 hour guided tour of the monastery when we got there. Then we had plenty of free time at Montserrat to hike to the cross and back, explore the market, do the liquor tasting and see the boys choir sing. The winery afterwards was amazing, the lunch was great, and we had time to relax at the winery before driving back to the city. The winery added another local element to the trip that we loved. It was fun to see something outside the city on our trip. We got back to Barcelona right at 7pm.

Bon dia, Callie!


 It seems you thoroughly enjoyed the tour :) Jordi will be delighted to know it!
 We see you chose the full day tour, our longest tour that starts at 8.45 am and finishes, as you well said, around 7 pm. This tour is the one with more free in Montserrat, more than 2.5 hours! And it looks like you made the most out of it! In order to make sure you enjoy that time at its best, it is always a good idea to ask your guide for recommendations. Hiking and enjoying the views, tasting the farmers’ cheeses, sampling the Montserrat liquors, listening to the choir, exploring the basilica, visiting he museum… There are so many amazing things to do in this mountain! After some time wandering by Montserrat, the full day tour includes a three-course meal in a nearby restaurant (with wine). We’re happy to read you liked it so much! The menu changes from time to time as it is prepared with local and seasonable products, but it is always delicious :) Remember to leave some room for the wine after lunch! The guided visit to the cellar and the wine tasting are the frost to the cake! The wine experience is meant to be informative and explanatory, but it is especially meant to be relaxed, joyful and fun! It is great to read you loved this part of the tour so much :) Thank you for choosing us to spend the day!

Hola! It seems you thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Ona will love to know it :) Tasting the food and the wine of a region is a great way of discovering that region’s culture! In our tours, we try to offer a gastronomical and oenological experience to take you closer to the local way of life. For us, the word “local” has great meaning when it comes to culture, so the wine and the food tasted in our tours are a great sample of the local production! Many thanks for stopping by! Greetings from Barcelona to Illinois!

Hi William!


 Many thanks for your nice comment :) We’re very happy to see you enjoyed the experience!


 At Castlexperience, we care a lot about group dynamics. For us, making sure the customers and the guides enjoy a relaxed, close and comfortable atmosphere during the whole tour is just essential. That is why we keep our groups small! This way, everyone in the group can listen to the guide, ask questions, share opinions and, wine not, chat with nice fellow travelers from all over the world! 


 Thank you for choosing our tours :)

Both places are stunning and interesting: history and wine! What else you could ask for? We are very glad that you joined us on tour and shared some of your time with us!

A beautiful trip. There is a serenity and beauty surrounding the mountains that gets to you. Had enough time to explore the church, the trail and the museum. The lunch was sumptuous and wine tasting was definitely a plus. Our guide Max made it all special. Will Highly recommend.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2020
¡Hola, Carmen! Thank you so much for your kind recommendation! Max will love to know how much you enjoyed the tour :) We couldn’t agree more! Montserrat is only an hour away from Barcelona, and it is absolutely worthy escaping the city and relax in touch with nature for a while! We see you chose the full day tour, the one with more free time in Montserrat. During the 2.5 hours of free time there are plenty of options to do: hiking, exploring the church, visiting the museum, sampling the farmer’s market… We’re happy to see you made the most out of your time in the mountain! We all get a bit hungry after spending the whole morning wandering around Montserrat, so after visiting the mountain it is time to have lunch! It is great to see you enjoyed it so much! The full day tour lunch consists on a three-course meal seasonable menu prepared with local products :) The menu changes from time to time, but what doesn’t change is the will to offer a great gastronomical and local experience! Many thanks for stopping by!

Great wine and info. Nice excursion. Wow was very nice people. Not rushed at all. Amazing historical family winery.

¡Hola, Kristin! Thanks for stopping by! We’re glad to know you enjoyed the experience so much :) Castlexperience is very picky when choosing a partner, so believe us when we assure the winery we visit in our tours is quite special! This cellar has an amazing history, as you said, because it has been in the same family for more than a thousand years. For them, making wine is a way of honoring their family and traditions, and they do it by following their own beliefs as well as by promoting the local grapes and the local production. Tasting their wines is like sipping a bit of history! Thank you for choosing our tours :)

Did some research on day tours from Barcelona and came across this tour. In short: please go! It was a lot of fun, Max, our tour guide was very informative and brings a fresh, yet intriguing perspective to this tour. I admit I’m not much of a wine person for the last stop of the tour, but Max saved the day, and actually changed my mind about wine to give it a chance. He’s very informative on tips and tricks and makes wine seem less like a dazzling puzzle to me. As for Montserrat itself, it goes without saying really. I love the architecture and geology behind it all. The little stories and anecdotes, facts and fables aid to this experience. Also: please bring double the clothes you think you’ll need. While I have a high tolerance for extreme temperature changes, not many do. They really do mean it that the temperature can change rapidly in even 1 minute.

Hola! Wow, what a nice review! In short: thank you!! Max will be very happy to know how much you enjoyed his tour :) We’re thrilled to read Max changed your mind about wine!!!! His knowledge is awesome, and his passion is contagious, so no wonder you decided to give wine a second chance after meeting him! The visit to the winery and the tasting is meant to be informative, entertaining and relaxed. Everyone can learn something new: those who know a lot about wine will discover the particularities of the local grapes and this cellar; and those who are taking their first steps in the world of wine, will learn to tell the differences between distinct varieties and aging through the body and the taste of the wines. As you wisely said, Montserrat is simply beautiful. Being there is the only way to truly understand the magic of this place! But yes, temperatures can be a bit tricky up the mountain! Warm clothes in winter, a big bottle of water in summer, and always very comfortable shoes are strongly recommended! Many thanks for taking the time to share your experience :)

Wonderful Montserrat Experience

Dani was our guide and he was knowledgable, funny and kind. It was easy to find our group (pink umbrella in front of the Hard Rock), we were all introduced to each other (12 total in our group) and grouped onto comfortable busses. Dani gave us a tour of Monserrat, leaving us with plenty of options and ideas to enjoy a couple hours individually. Afterward, we bussed to lunch (the duck was delicious), then to the wine tour at the Oller Del Mas winery. Dani was enthusiastic and knowledgable about the wine making process and the tasting itself. Then we bussed back to Hard Rock. We had a great time and would do it again!
icon Response from Host , Mar 2020
¡Hola, Melissa! What a nice review! Dani will be thrilled to read your kind words :) You’re right, he’s an amazing guide, friendly, engaging and very knowledgeable! We believe it is very important that every single part of the tour is as great as possible, transportation included! All our buses are pretty new, spacious and comfortable! Depending on the tour there is more or less free time in Montserrat so everyone can discover the place on their own. Full day tours include more than 2 hours of free time, and half days around 1-1,5 hours. There are many things to see in this mountain, and the guides know all of them better than anyone! So don’t hesitate and ask them for advice to make the most out of your free time :) The full day tour includes a three-course meal in a restaurant right before the tasting. We’re very happy you enjoyed the duck so much! The menu changes depending on the season because the lunch is prepared with local and seasonable products. But what doesn’t change is the will to offer a great gastronomical experience :) And last, but not least, it is time to taste the wiiiine! We’re very happy to read you’d repeat the experience! But now that you know Montserrat and Oller del Mas, we’d like to welcome you in our new tour Unknwon Gaudí, Tapas & Cava winery! It maintains the combination of history&wine and offers the chance to discover one of Gaudí’s gems and enjoying some of the best local sparkling wine :)
