Full description
Escape the hustle and bustle of beautiful Barcelona for the afternoon as you enjoy a private half-day tour to the stunning Montserrat Mountain. Poised atop the mountain of Montesrrat, the Benedictine Abbey of Santa Maria de Montserrat is a must-see for those interested in religious history and breathtaking views.  Built 1,000 years ago, the Abbey remains one of the most popular destinations for Christians worldwide, with many choosing to go on a pilgrimage here each year. Admire the wonderful mountain views and the impressive Basilica at the top of the mountain, considered by some as the site of the Holy Grail. If tantalizing your historical knowledge isn't enough then feast your eyes on the picturesque landscape situated around the monastery as you make your way to the top of the Montserrat. Be sure to capture the sprawling scenery and spectacular rock formations on camera, these sights can't be found every day! A trip to the area's traditional food markets for the chance to sample some local delicacies is a tasty way to conclude your tour.

Tour was good, but.....(read below)

We initially booked the tour for a day 21st and when we were waiting for the tour guide to show up, they stood us up. After half-an-hour, when I called GetYourGuide, they told me that the tour was not in their partner's system. When I called BCN Experts - Lara Tours number on the voucher it went to a person who worked there only 3 years ago. Totally ill organized. GetYourGuid offered to refund or arrange for the next day. Obviously, we took the next day option, and the next day people showed up promptly. Yuri and Katrina were the guides and the trip was good. Katrina is new, but did okay, and Yuri was great. Overall, it turned out to be okay, but I was deeply disappointed due the first day fiasco. Had to rearrange everything else!
