Our Favorite So Far! - We had a great time on this tour. The guides were super knowledgeable and shared a lot of facts with us. We had some free time to do a few activities they recommended at Montserrat-We recommend tasting some of the local farmer’s goods! The local winery was really beautiful and the wine was fantastic. We highly recommend this to everyone!

Amazing Tour for Big Group - We had an absolutely amazing time! Gus was an incredible tour guide and made our experience amazing. There were 10 of us traveling together and it was a super well planned day. Our tour guide Gus spent the bus drive up telling us the history of Barcelona and made sure we knew all the important facts. We explored Monserrat and had plenty of free time to roam around. Gus made sure we hit all the amazing stops and had lots of recommendations for us. The bus then took us to a beautiful winery and Gus was our sommelier for the afternoon. He did an amazing job the whole day and really made our experience one of a kind. I highly recommend this booking to anybody interested in exploring Montserrat!

Highly Recommend this Excursion for a Quick Trip to Montserrat - My wife and I did this half-day experience during our vacation to Spain earlier this month, and this tour was one of my favorite activities from the trip. The transportation was seamless, Montserrat was beautiful, and our guide (Mariana) was excellent. A few things to know going in: - Finding the check-in site at the bus station was a bit challenging, after entering the building you need to go up an escalator and there you'll find the the Castlexperience ticket window. - You won't have a ton of free time to wander around Monserrat after completing the guided portion of the tour--we only had about 45-50 minutes to free roam before we had to meet back up to move on to the winery portion of the day. This was fine for us, as we really just wanted to check it out and grab some photos, but if you want to spend more time exploring or plan to hike, I'd recommend going with a longer, full-day experience. - The tapas / wine were ok, nothing amazing. It was fun learning a bit about the types of grapes that the winemakers were growing in the region, just don't go in expecting a five-star culinary experience. All-in-all would totally recommend this trip to anyone who wants to check out Montserrat and enjoys learning a bit more about wine culture. Huge thanks to Mariana and the whole team on our bus who made the trip memorable.

Visit at Monserrat and Winery Oler Del Mas - Both tours at Monserrat and the winery Oler Del Mas have been very interesting. The guide (GUS) was very good and has strong knowledge of both sites and Barcelona history.

Great day outside Barcelona - This was a great experience and perfect to get out of Barcelona for a day. The mountain was like nothing I've ever seen and the winery was fun and tasty. Our tour guide, Ivan, was fantastic -- he knew a lot about the wines and that made the tasting more fun.

Awesome tour with Thais - We had Thais giving our tour and she was incredible. So funny, lively, and informative while keeping us on track with our tour so we could hit so many spots in our half-day time. She taught us so much about wine and the cathedral that we’ve taken with us, Thais thank you so much for making our trip!

Zhara is one of a kind! - Zhara was an amazing tour guide! She was so funny and fun to be around. Her English was amazing and she was a great public speaker. We enjoyed hanging out with her for the day and learning all she had to share about the tour. The tour was just long enough to get a full alluring experience without it being too drawn out. Four hours was a perfect time to get everything done, explore the mountain and the winery.
