We enjoyed a fantastic private tour of Montserrat with Miriam as our guide. From being picked up from our hotel in a chauffeur driven Mercedes, to drop off 5 hours later, we were very well looked after. Montserrat is an amazing place that intertwines the histories of Catalonia and the Catholic church in an stunning mountain setting. A must-see when in Barcelona. The whole ForeverBarcelona experience was a delight. Starting with the online communications, the email newsletter with useful Barcelona tips, and culminating in a wonderful friendly guide Miriam, who gave so much more than the minimum, it was all wonderful. We parted with hugs, and felt sad to see her walk off down the street and out of our lives after just 5 hours.

We booked 6 months in advance for three tours in July. Our guide was Marga and we were thrilled! She understood us right away and our tours reflected that. We were a group of three – me, my husband and our ten year old son. Our second day with Marga was a tour to Montserrat. Gorgeous. We started with a short 45 minute trail walk to a breathtaking viewpoint. Then sandwiches and drinks before heading into the Monastery. She explained so much – the boarding school, the religious history, the art, the monks, we left feeling very fulfilled.

We took two tours. One was a city walking tour with Miriam and the second was a tour of Montserrat with Marta. Both were wonderful tour guides. They were incredibly knowledgeable and took us to places we would have missed had we just walked the city ourselves. Their knowledge of English was another plus.

Had a full day tour of Montserrat with Miriam as our guide. It was a fantastic day trip from Barcelona with a great break for lunch on the way home. Miriam was a passionate and informed Catalan guide who had all the information and insights without being overwhelming. Montserrat is definitely worth visiting if time permits.

We had always wanted to try a private tour and this was where we did it. We had a day and a half with Miriam. She was fabulous. We went by ultra comfortable car to Montserrat the second day – not to be missed. The usual sights are great, but the art museum is a hidden gem and while we didn’t have much time to see it, Miriam’s knowledge of the collection’s most important works gave us the best review. It really is magnificent if you are an art lover, don’t miss! I loved it more than the black madonna.

I highly recommend this tour. Our guide was Lidia and she knew exactly what time to arrive and where we should go. Thank you Lidia, cannot wait to come back!

Thanks to Marta for showing us Montserrat. We had a lovely time in the mountain, and felt privileged to have touched the Black Madonna, and to have watched and heard the beautiful boys choir.

Our first tour out of two was to Montserrat. We felt very spoiled because we had our own delightful and very dapper driver and we got to do whatever we wanted. We saw everything we wanted to see and were never rushed. The tour ended with a fabulous lunch at a local restaurant on the other side of the mountains. Great day!

Our family booked a 4 day tour that encompassed the City of Barcelona, Montserrat and Figueres and Girona. It was exactly what I hoped it would be. Our tour guide Montserrat was excellent. Her love of her country and her respect for its history and culture was evident in her plans for us and her narrated guidance. The restaurants were not typical tourist places, but real Catalonia adventures in the best sense. Our driver Diego was so nice and really knew his locations, where to drop us off and where and when to pick us up. Our group, a single mom and two teenagers were given an opportunity to really enjoy our trip as a family thans to Montserrat and Diego.

Our tour guide Marta had a wealth of knowledge that made it fun and interesting for the whole family. On the second day, we made the magical trip to Montserrat – an unbelievably beautiful and spiritual place up in the mountains. Must see.

The first day we were picked up at the cruise terminal right when the ship docked and traveled to Montserrat. Our luggage was secure as we spent time in this very special place. Our visit to the museum there, which houses world-class art, was enhanced by Montse’s in-depth knowledge of very single piece of art! We have never met a guide with so much knowledge.
