Very good tour.

Very good tour. An hour by bus but worth the trip. If you get their early you can see the Black Madonna and there is a good walk to the mid point of the mountain to see their cross.

The sad part was it was a holiday and extra toursts/locals.. it took us over an extra hour and a half sitting on the bus to even access the tour. We did have a visit but with long lines it was a 2 hr wait to access the Black Madonna.. our lunch- they did make accomodations for my food allergies, but served cake with no coffee??? We had been here before,or we would have been sorely disappointed. The drive thru Barclona, ended up with walking a bit around the church and of course, need to stop at a tourist trap store..waste of time! Read Less
