TAILOR THIS TOUR TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS

This tour is the perfect solution for adults full of energy, with only on day in town but wanting to visit the Montserrat Monastery but also get a good overview of the Barcelona sites. If you have 2 days or even 1.5, we strongly recommend to split your sightseeing in two (one day for Barcelona and one for Montserrat), as this 9-hour tour is quite energy demanding. The cost will be pretty much the same but you’ll enjoy it twice as much (and you might even get to see more in less time). If you are likely to be tired after a long overnight flight, consider this tour with airport pick-up for your first day. If you are traveling with children, this tour is too long for them. Consider taking a half day Barcelona tour, and use the afternoon for some a family activity. TIP: taking them to the Castle of the Hill of Montjuic on the Montjuic cablecar can be a nice alternative to Montserrat for kids. If you are traveling with teens, this tour is likely to be too long for them too. Check with them before booking and make sure they are totally enthusiastic about the plan. Otherwise, please split the tour in two days or choose a shorter Barcelona tour. If you have walking issues or use a wheelchair, consider if you’ll have enough stamina for a 9-hour day. In Montserrat we’ll be walking, but there are opportunities to seat and it is also wheelchair friendly. As for Barcelona, keeping the driver is absolutely recommendable and some sites involve steps: check with us before booking, so we can recommend the best itinerary for you according to your capacities and set the right expectations.

We hired Marta and Miriam to take our large family group on a morning tour of Montserrat and an afternoon walking tour of Barcelona. They were fabulous. They met us at our hotel a few minutes early with a comfortable motorcoach to take us to Montserrat. As we motored up the mountain, they entertained us with many interesting facts and stories about the history and present circumstances of the area. They worked together to share their information, insights and personal stories. It felt much more like a fun discussion than a boring lecture. We enjoyed the flecibility they allowed us when it came to differing ideas and needs. Miriam entertained my 5 year old daughter when needed and therefore made the experience better for each of us. Afterlunch, we enjoyed a guided tour of the Sagrada Familia. Wow! Do not miss this! Miriam and Marta were amazing guides and commanded the attention of even the youngest members of our group. Through their love and enthusiasm for their hometown, I began to love the city of Barcelona. I cannot wait to return and explore some more.

We only had 1 day to explore Barcelona and a friend had recommended “ForeverBarcelona”. We loved the entire day. Javier and a driver picked us up at the cruise port and first we sent to Montserrat. Views and monastery were spectacular. We got to hear the boys choir. Then we dropped out luggage, had a great lunch and proceeded to see so many sights. HIGHLY recommended.

We had just gotten off the plane from Florida when Marta picked us up at the airport to start a day of touring. She took us to Montserrat (don’t miss this!) and then into Barcelona. She wouldn’t let us miss the must see Sagrada Familia. Marta is a wonderful guide – very knowledgeable and easy going. We can’t wait to get back to Barcelona!

I was worried about touring the city on our own since neither my husband nor I speak English and we needed to make good use of our free time. After checking user reviews, we decided to secure the services of ForeverBarcelona and arranged for Miriam to spend a day with us. It was a great decision! Although relatively expensive, it really was worth it to have our very own private guide and driver. Miriam picked us up at our hotel promptly at 9 in the morning. She took us up into the mountains to visit the monastery and shrine at Montserrat. We came back to the city for a great tapas lunch and then began the explorations of Gaudi. We had our won private driver and a wonderful Mercedes van that was available for us at each turn! We had a great day. Even though there is so much more to Barcelona than we were able to see in a day, we really felt like we experienced the best of the city and left very satisfied with our explorations. I’d strongly recommend ForeverBarcelona if you want more than the general bus tour and really want to see the city from the eyes of a knowledgeable expert and native!
