I chose this tour because I had half a day. This is the right amount of time to visit montsurrat. I had plenty of time to tour the church and explore the grounds. I did not have quite enough time to finish the hiking trails nearby, but in January it was a chilly hike anyway. The tour guide was charming, knowledgeable about everything the bus passed, and willing to engage in conversation. His English was excellent.

It was OK.

The tour was just OK. Comfortable bus with a friendly driver Jesus, our guide Jessica was nice but overall information provided was limited and shortly after the arrival we were on our own. The museum was not included which I don't think was disclosed. Basically you pay for the transportation and limited guide service, mostly on the way to Montserrat.

Thank you very much for your words. We understand your feedback. Our guides usually provide a vast quantity of information. Not only during the drive in our all panoramic glass roof bus to Montserrat but also once you've reached your destination. In the meantime we appreciate your review and we will use it in order to keep improving our services.

We had a fast drive to and from the Mountain and the buildings were modern and are well taken care of by the keepers. There was a semi steep hill, but easy to walk. The history is interesting and our guide was great and very through of your knowledge of the surrounding areas and the religious history of the monastery as well as the monks and nuns, as well as the choir boys who stay there. I don't think I'd recommend for an active 15 yo boy as my grandson, he would have been great going, but kind of bored with the slowness of second half of the 1/2 day tour. They have a nice gift shop, as well as the cafeteria was good.

Just OK

There is so much more to see in Montserrat besides the monastery but that's all this tour focuses on. Our guide was good, quite knowledgeable about the history the monastery. We were hoping to actually get off the monastery grounds, even if we couldn't go up to the top of the rock formations. There is no way to do that with this tour - and once you see the monastery there is nothing else to do except see the gift shop. Would not recommend for the price, which we thought was very high - 54 Euros each.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2019
We are very sorry to know that you were expecting something different from this tour. I'm afraid it is not possible to get to the top of the Montserrat mountain with any tour. The maximum higher you can get is with the funicular which is just a couple meters above the monastery. Same impressive views than from the monastery. With 4 hours of tours (2 of them are the way and return to Barcelona) we try to show the most important things and history in Montserrat. Next time we invite you to do our tour Magical Night in Montserrat that has included one night in a hotel of the mountain and it is plenty of time to discover the mountain. We hope you enjoyed Barcelona!
