What a fantastic day. Left Salou and headed to Colonia Guell where we saw the church built by gaudi and the rest of the town before a brief stop for a drink at a little local bar. On then to montseratt monastery, a steep climb up winding roads to breathtaking views. The monastery, basilica and other buildings are simply beautiful, the small room contains the black Madonna is intricate and stunning, the work is incredible. Whilst this is a great place to visit, it was made even better by our guide ‘Bruno.’ He has been taking tours since 1994 and his knowledge and commentary is first class. He also slips seamlessly from Spanish to English, French and German keeping everyone involved. I went with my wife, 18 year old daughter and 14 year old son and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day, would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Absolutely amazing! We had a great experience from beginning to end, we were picked up at our hotel doors and the guys were so nice! I personally panicked when I got under the water however Luis and his partner took me by the hand and walked me through it making me feel so at ease and I didn’t give up. 100/10 would definitely recommend :)

Excellent trip, tour guide full of knowledge. To much to see and to little time, need a good couple days in Barcelona to see all the interesting places and really appreciate it. This trip was well worth the money though & would do it again.
