Wonderful tour and fully worth it if you have a short stay in barcrlona. Early access tour made sure I had more time to explore the city after. The guide was very friendly and very passionate.

TERRIBLE experience... guide never showed up

The tour guide never showed up! We got up at 6:30am, took a taxi to be at the meeting point at 7:45, only to wait over 1 hr in the cold weather for a guide who never showed up! We had traveled from the US, Mexico and Germany to see this place, and left Barcelona without visiting Montserrat thanks to this terrible tour company. Extremely upsetting and disappointing. Will never book again with them

This is an early tour, which means the bus is one of the earliest to arrive at the monastery. So you can be almost sure you have access to visit the Black Madonna chapel in person. Great tour guide. His name is Roberto. Bus is too warm and the driver keeps talking. It would have been nice to talk about the Santa Cova too. Lovely tour. The view there is fantastic. Would recommend this tour
