Read carefully!

This tour was booked as a combo tour lasting 7 hours! Much to my dismay the visit to Sagrada was not until 3:30pm! I had gotten on the Monserrat tour at 6:45, got off at 11:30! I was thinking I would either stay on the same bus or at least be finished the Combo tour at 2:30 (7 hours). Little did I know I needed to catch the metro and the tour didn’t start until 3:30! I am physically disabled so this timing and the metro ride didn’t suit! Needless to say I wasn’t able to make the second portion of the Combo tour!

A nice combination day trip

This excursion is a great way to catch two renowned churches, Monserrat and La Sagrada Família. However, Monserrat gets busy at the point where we were to meet with the Black Madonna which took a lot of our time to take in the rest of the beautiful site. As for the Sagrada Família, the 3 hour wait between excursions, the lack of transport to the church and the fact that we did not have “tower passes” made this part slightly less alluring. This said, La Sagrada Família is an amazing work of art and well worth visiting.

Not a full day tour, it's 2 half day tours.

Both places are amazing and worth seeing. Once you have been to Montserrat you are dropped back in the centre of Madrid and then you make your way to Sagrada. There is a 2 and a half hour break between tours. The guides at both places were good. At Montserrat there was ample time to do our own thing and there are many ways to spend the time. Go as early as possible, it is lovely to be there without the big crowds which will come later.
