Recommended !!!

Unfortunately there was a very short time Problene with the pickup and we had to drive to the meeting point ourselves. It is best to ensure beforehand whether the hotel is within the radius of the organizer. They only check the day before. The tour itself was definitely worth every cbt and Maggy was an incredibly personable and great guide. She explained a lot and was very attentive. A great day and definitely not the last time :)

It was a remarkable tour, magnificent place!

I realised that a tour with a small group of tourists is actually much better as the service was not hurried, more personal with better camaraderie with the tour guide as well. I have been taking tours that were big busloads and somehow, this comes out much better by leaps and bounds.

Wonderful!!

The tour was wonderful. Our guide Barbara, made it a personal experience. She explained things with passion and knowledge and were learned much about the monastery and the monks. We're also had a lovely hike to the cross and enroute she gave us a Catalonia treat to eat. She was kind and considerate of everyone on the tour. We loved the monastery and the park- so beautiful!!
