What people are saying about Black Madonna
This tour was amazing! My guide from Amigos Tours, Sasha was so energic and friendly even though this was an early morning tour! She was super excited and enthusiastic about everything which made the tour that much more interesting and special! To my suprise I was the only one who showed up for this tour (off season) and the company was awesome enough to still run the tour just for me at no extra cost! The drive up was absolutely stunning as you drive through the mountains and clouds! Being the early morning tour we were the first ones there and had the whole place to ourselves! The views were amazing and I would definitely recommend doing the walk out to St. Michaels Cross. This tour was the highlight of my trip to Barcelona as it is such a unique area and unlike anything I have ever seen before!
First of all, I would like to commend our guide, Martin, who was very punctual and organized with respect to the time and meeting place. She also has a pleasant personality with a great sense of humour. The trip was worthwhile because Martina gave us a historical background of Barcelona and she made the tour of Montseratt a great experience. This early morning tour gives us the chance to see the Black Madonna ahead of the others and appreciate that breathtaking view atop the mountain and picture taking opportunities. This is a great value for money and highly recommended!
The bus was comfortable. We arrived at Montserrat very early just even before crowd arrives which means we don’t have to queue for a long time and can take better pictures without too many people around. The guide was knowledgable & friendly. The tour was half day though so we did not get enough time to explore the whole place. Nonetheless, it’s highly recommended.
The early morning visit afforded us a beautiful, quiet walk to the meeting point. There are no tourists out so early in the morning, so "clean" photos of the cathedral are possible! The guide's talk was bi-lingual and informative. We were able to see and spend time with the Black Virgin with no waiting.
Loved it!! The tour guide was fantastic!! However, the tour is misleading. It states there will be wine tasting. However, when you get there you find out is not wine, but liqueur made at the monestary. Was really looking forward to trying some Spanish wine. Disappointing.
