Upon your arrival, enjoy a 45-minute guided tour throughout which you learn about Montserrat including its secrets. This tour also sees you visiting the farmer’s market and entering the basilica. You guide then explains all the fun activities you can do with your 2 hours of free time following the guided tour.

The day was great. Marta was our guide and was super very enthusiastic and gave us a lot of information in a fun way, and had a great personality. Our original tour was for only 5 hours, but our guide was ill so we got a complimentary upgrade to the 7 hour tour with wine and tapas, which was amazing, and I am so glad we did this tour. Finding where to go for pick up was easy, and the views and history of Montserrat are amazing. The wine and tapas at the vineyard were delicious. The vineyard itself was extremely interesting too. The weather was sunny but very cold at the mountain (around 30°F) so be sure to bundle up in the winter months. This tour was great and we are so glad we decided to do it! It was a wonderful experience, and this company has fantastic customer service.

This tour was awesome and Mercedes made it especially pleasant! She was great with our family of 5 (kids ages 5, 10 and 13). We really enjoyed it :)

Ana was an excellent guide. She made sure we saw as most as posible and tried to get us ahead from the crowd so we could see The Black Madonna before the basilica closed for mass. Would love to go on another tour again with her
