Montserrat Monastery: Guided Tour with Early Access
- Duration: 5 hours
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!
The 6:45 Tour to Montserrat Monastery is amazing.It is worth waking up early in the morning to be there before other groups arrive. Our guide was so wonderful, she explained many important details of the Monastery,she has also a sense of humor and very helpful. We left on time and arrived at the Monastery while the sun is rising and no other group was there yet. My husband and I was able to walk all the way to the Cross on top of the hill, visit the black Madona saw the interior of the church,the view when you get to the top was beautiful, the mountain itself was just incredible. If you are spiritual and Love nature as well, this is so perfect. The only drawback is the time, it is short to do finicular, audiovisual, listen to Boys choir and have coffee... over all it is BEAUTIFUL...
Our trip was easy and very enjoyable!! Our guide Gabby was perfect - she knew so much about the area and was also so kind when watching out for the safety and well-being of her clients. My mother left her phone in the chapel and Gabby worked on our behalf to track it down. She spoke on the bus (both ways) to us about the history of Barcelona and Montserrat. It was a wonderful day trip. ⭐️
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.
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.
