Overall is excellent and also above expectation lead by the local guide ***. nnMorning Montserrat visit include monastery and hiki...ng to know for the story behind and enjoy the natural environment in the incredible view. nnAnd then afternoon get to Sitges scenes with the lovely price and delicious lunch, enjoy beach and sea view and walking along the relaxing street, which is the perfect unique local tour design routine, especially for love taking photos, hiking and natural scene visitors who wish to getting into depth view for Barcelona associated with an unique Barcelona experience sharing with their friends. nnAfter this tour, we get deeper understanding and memorable experience to Barcelona, Montserrat and Sitges. Since this time joining is the winter time, and the Winter and Summer time scene would be fairly different experiences that we will visit here again. nnStrongly recommend local tour, who is wishing to have small private group with 3-5 people, and who love hiking, enjoy natural scene and taking photos. more
