Discover Catalonia culture and history through the Montserrat Holy Mountain. Visit Montserrat Abbey, watch their world-renowned Boys Choir perform, ride a rack railway to the Natural Park and enjoy a one-hour trek around the mountain.

OUTSTANDING!! This tour was perfection. We had a small group of 7 plus guide. No children or elderly folks to slow us down which enabled us to hike to the summit which was both rewarding and offered spectacular views! A clean Mercedes air-conditioned van met us in the city, right on time, we actually left earlier than scheduled, (great group, punctual and fit!), so we reached the monastery site prior to all crowds, waited less than 5 min for access to Black Madonna which we touched and photographed, then rode the funicular to top, hiked even further to the summit (about 1.5 hr up?), hiked back down (about 45 min) in time to hear Boys choir (which was overly crowded and easily skippable, imo), then returned to the city in the van arriving around 2:30pm. Our guide also had a few great restaurant suggestions in Barcelona. He spoke impeccable English and was a perfect fit for a group that did NOT want a "tour group" experience with headsets and flags, running commentary, etc. This was NOTHING like that. It was relaxed, casual, amazing and the highlight of our trip to Spain. Wish I could remember the guide's name, it was unusual and I had no idea how to spell it, but I'm sure they are all great! I won't lie, the hike was a bit strenuous for this 54 yr old, but we took lots of breaks and never felt rushed. It was totally worth it!
Do.This. You won't regret it!
