We also had Miriam again for our 5-hour private tour to Montserrat, which we loved!! She was very knowledgeable, very accommodating, and extremely friendly. Top notch!! We were a group of 4 (ages 60-65) and their Mercedes van (which we used on all 3 days) was extremely comfortable and able to accommodate our large amount of luggage very easily. Marta was my contact and she was very easy to work with, very prompt and very detailed. She always kept me in the loop and made me confident that I had chosen the right tour company. Would highly recommend Forever Barcelona and if we were in Barcelona again I would definitely use their services. They made this trip very memorable and gave us an amazing overview in the short time we were there!!

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.

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.

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.

We did two tours with ForeverBarcelona, Gaudi and Monserrat, and we cannot say which was better as both were excellent. Marta and Miriam were incredibly knowledgable, engaging, and joys to be around. Our three teenagers (18, 18, and 16) loved the tours and remained engaged the entire time. We learned so much more and enjoyed ourselves so much more than we could have on our own. The communication was excellent and the tour flawless. Our group of 7 has done tours all over the world and these rank as some of the best. I highly, highly recommend them.

We had the best time with Begoña on a walking tour of Barcelona and a full day tour of Montserrat. We had three generations and ages seven to sixty-seven and she managed to keep us all engaged, chatting Spanish history with my dad and getting my daughters to spot different animals on buildings. The Montserrat tour is a must-do too while in town—breathtaking. We could have spent forever in Barcelona with Begonia!

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.

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 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.

We had the BEST time in Barcelona, largely due to the two incredible tours that we had with Maria ("MJ"). We were staying in Barcelona for 2 nights after a cruise before our return home. On the first day we had booked a half day city tour and on the second day a 5 hour trip to Montserrat. Both were amazing! MJ was punctual, informative and so full of positive/incredible energy. Most importantly, she was very perceptive about our family and seamlessly adjusted the tour to fit our needs/interests. Our party of 6 consisted of my husband, our 2 children, my two parents (one with mobility issues due to a knee injury) and myself. MJ perfectly adjusted the tour to be slow enough for my mom to keep up and at the same time keep the interest of our kids. She was really able to keep all of us engaged which must have been a huge challenge (but you would have never known). She was continuously finding ways to make our time memorable (from finding fun ways to take a picture to stopping for local treats). She even went out of the way on our return trip from Montserrat so that my son could see/take a picture at Camp Nou (Barcelona Stadium) because she knew he had an interest (even though this was not part of our scheduled tour). Each day when MJ left us, she went out of her way to make sure that we had a good plan on how to utilize the remainder of our day in order to maximize our time in Barcelona. She is quite simply the best tour guide we have ever had. I also want to give a shout out to our driver Manuel. We felt incredibly safe riding around with him and he was always quick to add insight wherever he could. He was extremely friendly and very pleasant to spend the drive with.

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.

We had a fantastic private guided tour to take us outside of Barcelona for two days. One day we went hiking in Montserrat after visiting the monastery, followed by a lunch in Monistrol frequented only by locals. The second day we went to Tarragona to see the Roman ruins then followed by a wine tasting in the pennies region. Forever Barcelona was very easy to work with and helped customize our trip. Marta was a fantastic guide and she has now become our friend.
