Montserrat Monastery Visit & Natural Park Hiking with Railway from Barcelona
Visiting Montserrat Monastery without a guide may involve glossing over the history and significance of this mountainside site.

The tour includes transport and funicular tickets, so you can focus wholly on the sights.

We weren’t exactly sure what was in store for us, but we were not disappointed. Trip involved a 40-minute bus ride from Barcelona city center to Montserrat. Our handsome and quite knowledgeable guide, Marco, provided enlightening commentary along the way. Upon arrival, he provided history and insights about the location, and steered us to see the virgin and child around which the monastery was founded—luckily, there as no line. Then Marco took us up the mountain by tram and led us on a pleasant walk back down. The views from the mountain are breathtaking. I’m 63 and in great health, so the hike was not difficult for me; but I would not take my 84-year-old mother on this hike. While many people on the tour this October wore long sleeves and jackets, I am glad I did not. The physical activity kept me warm enough; I would have been hot and sweating, otherwise. Back down at the main plaza, we had a little extra time to shop before heading back to the city. Oh, did I mention how smart and handsome Marco is?…

Oscar was awesome and the walking part of the tour was great. Lots of history and architecture info. The helicopter and boat were nice but probably not relevant if your looking for Barcelona tour. You didn’t get any extra information. The view of the city from air was nice but that’s it. The boat you really only saw water and other boats. Would have rather pay less and do only the walking part…

We went on this tour on Spanish National Day. That meant that the crowds were probably smaller than usual in many areas of town. The guides split up the group into about 2 equal parts of around a dozen people each. Our group needed English and German, and our guide was fluent in both. We started at about 9:40 and made our way down the main shopping drag, stopping to talk about a couple of Gaudi buildings. We eventually got down to the old town and gothic quarter. That portion had more interesting sights. We stopped for drinks and a bathroom break at about 10:50 and reconvened at 11:30. After a short walk down La Rambla, we landed up at the port offices. A van took groups of 7 to the heliport. That process took over an hour to move everyone there. The wait for a helicopter was short - as was the ride. It lasted for exactly 5 min, and took us up the coast to the edge of downtown and back. After the flight, we needed to ride back to the ship terminal and then walked to the catamaran. At that point our guide left us and we boarded the boat. It launched at 1:45 and took essentially the same route as the plane. About 1/2 the time was spent simply getting in and out of the harbor. The view was nice, but not amazing. Honestly, unless you’re super excited about going in a helicopter, I’d suggest a walking tour without the extras.…

We were scheduled to leave at 10am for a 4 hour tour. I was contacted via email at 9 am that the tour was cancelled, no phone call or text. We had already traveled to the port as we were to be there by 9:45. No contact via viator as the message was blank. Beautiful day with sun and temps in the mid 70’s, so weather can’t be the issue. Terrible customer service. We won’t be booking with this company again.…

This tour was a lot of fun! Wish we had more time at the winery. We weren’t finished with our last wine and had to leave. The sailing was great! You sail one way and take a bus the other way. The entire group had a blast. Would recommend!
