This was a beautiful tour of the Montserrat. The tour guides were knowledgable and funny. The drive was very enjoyable! The tour ends at a winery, where we enjoyed tapas and some wine tasting. After the initial tasting, we were taken out to the patio where we were encouraged to purchase more wine by the glass - but then IMMEDIATELY rushed back on to the bus. I ended up having to chug a glass and a half of wine (the tasting guide suggested that I try two different ones, based on my preferences, and they were very healthy pours), and jog back to the bus. Would have preferred 20-30 more minutes to sit and actually enjoy the wine - which was not cheap. Otherwise, a great tour!

Hello Jordan! First of all, thank you for your honest review and your kind words about the tour guides. We are very sorry to read that we did not meet your expectations regarding the last part of the tour which was the wine bar. I regret you felt rushed at the end, the terrace where the wine bar takes place after the wine tasting is a place where you´d like to stay forever as it has wonderful views. I am sorry you felt your time there was not enough. We like our customers to remember our tours as a combination of wine and culture but anyway I am really sorry you had this rushed feeling at the end. Being said, we really appreciate your honest feedback and we hope we can welcome you again any other time and delight you with the beautiful tours that we are use to do. Thanks for joining us on tour :)

All of the guides on this tour were great! They taught us a lot about not only Montserrat but Catalonia in general. I think it was the perfect amount of time spent on each location.

We are always working to improve this and it seems that we are getting there little by little. I am sure they will love to read your comments about it. Thank you also for mentioning the guides.

It was pleasure to visit this remarkable place,we had amazing day,with nice weather and sun which made this trip even better,our guide David was excellent,especially in his knowledge of history,as he was profesor of history,there was plenty nice stories to hear from him.Wine tasting is something that you must connect with this tour,as this vineyeard was founded in 10th century,and is still running under same family.The view from vineyard is looking at montserrat mountain,it is relaxing and enjoyable. P.S Please make sure that you go with cable car to monastery,cause we did not book this in our tour.

Hola, Stanko! Looks like you thoroughly enjoyed the tour with David! He will love to read how much you liked it :) Montserrat never disappoints! And after discovering one of the most amazing places of our region, having a local tapas lunch with local wine and in great company doesn’t sound bad at all, right? We’re very happy you enjoyed it that much :) Thank you for taking the time to share your experience!

David our guide was friendly and funny. The pickup details was easy and clear. Waiting time was reasonable and good value for money to visit monastery and vineyard in Montserrat. Enjoyed the tour of Monastery although vineyard tour seemed short and rushed. But we got back to city before dark which was great too. Do bring warmer clothes as weather is chilly up in MontSerrat.

Dear Cindy, Thank you so much for your kind words! We really appreciate you for taking the time to write this review, and specially for mentioning David’s good job. We are glad you enjoyed the tour. Don't hesitate to come to visit us again if you are in Barcelona! Best wishes and Happy New Year!
