Finish your visit with a performance of the legendary La Escolania de Montserrat, one of the oldest and most renowned boys' choirs in Europe.

After lunch (own expense), jump back in the minivan for a drive through the idyllic Penedes wine region and hear how Catalan specialty Cava is produced as you wind through the vineyards. Stop to visit the Cava capital of Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, where you’ll have the option to enjoy a guided tour and tasting at the prestigious Codorniu winery (own expense), where you can sample a variety of fine sparkling wines and perhaps purchase some bottles to take away with you.

Bad. Look for something cheaper.

Was really just an overpriced car service. Driver didn’t really know anything about the area. When we were offered lunch, the driver said, “I really don’t come here much so I don’t know what’s good.” I feel like for the money the expectation and experience should be elevated. Cava tasting and Montserrat are great but I probably could have paid a cabbie $200 and had the same day.

We had an excellent guide Luis, who was very knowledgeable about the area and went out of his way to make my family and myself very comfortable. I would recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for a unique day trip away from the city to enjoy some time in the country side and in the mountains.

Excellent!! Great, friendly and knowledgeable guide. Lots of fun and well worth the added expense to have a private driver and guide there were three of us and not be on a large tour bus!
