Barcelona Montserrat Walking Tour Excursion Reviews
This portion of our private tour was excellent.
Disney Montserrat with transfer to Barcelona hotel. Great. Bus from debarkation to rail stop. Railroad up to Montserrat. Excellent tour guide. Then time to explore. Went to art museum on own. (OK, not great. I am spoiled by Florence, Paris, Lima, etc. If I were not, the art museum would have been fine.) Church awesome. Hike to cross enjoyable. Tour included drink in cafeteria. Nice selection. Local market outside - be sure to try the local cheeses and honey. Excellent. Then to our hotel. Montserrat is worth the extra time and money.
Took the train from Placa del Espana train station. Very easy. Lots of walking/hiking. The site itself is amazing!
We took the Monstatry tour and man what a view from up there. Absolutely beautiful and picturesque. Loved the architecture and views. Can't say enjoy about the views.
We were a bit rushed especially the long queue to see Mary, Mother of God in black. We had to get in and out before the Church service commenced andonce the Church service was in process we could not take any pictures. It was a very expensive trip and we did not do or see much to warrant that amount of money being spent.
We were lucky to get both brothers that own this business on the day we were in Barcelona. Peter and Carl were the best guides we have ever had in our decades of traveling. They went out of their way to accommodate my Mother who was in a wheelchair. We felt like they were friends instead of tour guides for the day. They showed us everything imaginable in Montserrat. This is a place you must see if you are in Barcelona. We had been to Barcelona several times prior to this visit but had never been to Montserrat. Carl and Peter were worth double what we paid them for the day. We saw more than you could imagine in one day and we were not rushed or hurried. They knew where for us to sit for the best view and the perfect time to get a seat to hear the boys choir and the Madonna statue at Montserrat. Go with Peter and or Carl and you will have a day you will remember for the rest of the your lives. Peter and Carl can be contacted at DayTripsBarcelona.com.
This was the highlight of the cruise! Montserrat is absolutely magnificent. We marveled at how the monks could possibly have built the church and their quarters in such steep mountainous conditions. The church is a work of art in itself and we were fortunate to be there on a Sunday and attend a Mass.
weather was bad. Guide was good
