What people are saying about Barcelona

cellphone when I got lost. Kept us together and explained the history of the legend of Monserat. The day was extremely rainy and yet we received ponchos and managed to keep the itinerary (hike & horse ride,). The stabel hands were watchful and empathetic to the horses & us humans. I will b returning because it went so well!! So appreciative to Laura our horseback guide too!!

It was amazing, we had Martina to show us around and she was an excellent guide, she told us all about the history of the monastery and all the legends and we had an awesome experience with the horses, all was super well planned, exactly in time, totally recommend!

A really unique experience. Not so much time to wander around the monastery but horse riding was incredible and accessible to novices.

Amazing! Great experience from start to finish, would 100% do it again.

Very nice trip, but would have liked a little more time in Montserrat.
