    Jennifer was outstanding! She was very knowledgeable, patient, respectful and over the top helpful! We met her at the pick-up location and she lead us to the train. We had a very nice train ride to Montserrat and she told us about the countryside as we traveled through it. We rode the cable car up to the monastery. She explained all about the site. We walked around for a while, sampled some local cheeses and nuts. After a few more stops looking at more of the monastery, we had lunch. She brought very tasty sandwiches; we had some chips and warm drinks. Montserrat is such a beautiful and amazing place. You could easily spend a few days there seeing all there is to see. Highly recommended, good price, and if your fortunate enough to have Jennifer show you around, you are in for a great trip!!

    We met our guide in Playa de España and went on a train out to Monserrat. Fred was awesome! He engaged the whole train ride, spoke to the history, of both the Monastery and the city. He reached out prior to ensure the lunch was great and met any dietary restrictions. The Monastery was beautiful and views were breathtaking. Seeing the La Moreneta was truly inspirational.

    My husband and I had a great experience with our tour. Pau was our guide and he touched base with me the day prior to our planned tour which was very helpful and reassuring as we are navigating in a new country. He was very informative and funny and taught us a lot about the Spanish culture as well as Monserrat. He was very kind and even helped us get on a train to return us to our final destination. I highly recommend booking a tour with Pau.
