Full description
Experience an unforgettable guided group tour to Montserrat, Catalonia's most famous mountain range. Take in the beauty of its natural rolling landscape and discover the history and traditions of its medieval monastery. After your bus journey from Barcelona, board the cogwheel train up to the monastery and admire the beautiful nature and iconic multi-peaked mountain range of Montserrat. Once at the monastery, your guide will take you on a walking tour of the historical center of the complex. Learn about the rich history of the Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey, an 11th-century monastery that still functions to this day, with over 70 monks. Use the allotted free time to wander freely and visit the famous Black Madonna and see paintings by Picasso, El Greco, and Dali at the Montserrat Museum. During your free time, you can also ride the funicular train up the side of the mountain to get even better viewpoints of the monastery.  Travelers who booked the half-day tour option will return to Barcelona after the visit to Montserrat. If you chose a full-day tour option, you'll continue toward a beautiful boutique winery. Arrive at the winery and, depending on the food option you booked, enjoy a light tapas or multi-course lunch. Admire amazing views of the winery and Montserrat mountains as you feast on traditional foods of the region. After your meal, wander around the vineyards, learn about the wine-making process, and enjoy a wine tasting session, before traveling back to Barcelona.

Exceptional! Everything was really nice and beautiful. The guides were really friendly and full of interesting facts. In perticular David was really smart and funny. The winery Oler was so nice that we would love to go back there for a weekend. There was a small inconvenient. We would have loved more time at the monastery so we could also go up the mountain to the cross and enjoy the cheese from the local farmers. All in all, it was a beautiful birthday day.

I was not completely sure about booking this tour as I’m a lone traveller and thought it would be full of couples! It was. BUT it was the highlight of my stay in Barcelona. I can’t tell you how much I love it. (cuanto me encantó) It was informative all the way through with snippets you wouldn’t have known but the guides where great at not going into overload. My groups guide Pol was brilliant. He was passionate about Barcelona and every subject he had to cover, which was Barcelona, Montserrat, monks, history and wine making. (The later was a highlight) he was even then a barman, letting us have the time for a glass or our fave before ascending the coach once more. You won’t regret this tour.

The guide was great, my only critique is that we barely spent any time at montserrat and the overall tour was far more wine dominant than I'd anticipated. Should probably be renamed to "wine tour with expedited montserrat sampling" but aside from that it was great, I did enjoy both montserrat and the wine tour as well as the food and our guide was excellent.
