The monastery is amazing. We did not do the hot air balloon, that portion of our excursion was canceled without any reason as to why. We were given a substitute excursion and refund for the difference of the two excursions by the third party tour company. Both the horseback riding and the tour of the Monastary were well worth it. The guide Daria and Mario were excellent, and provided additional recommendations.

Recommended tour! An amazing experience. The morning hot air balloon ride was very relaxing. Seeing the landscapes from above was definitely memorable. Then visiting the Monastery in Monserrat after just makes this tour even more value for money. Ample time was given to us to explore Monserrat. The guide and driver were very accommodating to drop me off my hotel after the tour to catch my scheduled train. Thank you!

It was an awesome experience. This was our first time in the balloon. The captains made our ride a totally enjoyable. The farm lands of Spain showcases a very serene atmosphere. We had champagne towards the end of our ride. The captains also ensured to capture some memorable pictures of my family and me both on the ride and upon landing. We will cherish this forever. Highly recommended.
