It was a lot less crowded than the day tour and the weather was perfect for all the hiking. It was nice to have someone drive vs driving on your own or taking the train/cable/funicular. Our guide gave us info we asked for & didn’t overwhelm us with too much. Very interesting grounding spiritual energy up there.

This tour was an excellent, convenient, and informative way to experience Montserrat. Our guide, Daniel, was very knowledgeable about the area and provided interesting info as we drove to and explored the mountain. There were many activities to do in our free time, but also a nice balance of guided experiences. It was so convenient to be picked up and dropped off directly from a hotel!

The tour to Montsserat monastery/mountain was worthwhile and fun. The pick up at the hotel went well and on time. Our guide Matt was super nice and gave us some interesting information about the place and gave us good tips for Barcelona. However, the price-performance ratio is not quite right for me, since no entry was included on site. So you basically only paid for the transport through the guide. The Madonna visit, cable car, food... everything has to be paid extra. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time to hike to the grotto because we stayed with the group and there was no choir there at the time.
