What an awesome tour!!Best way to spend your day! Montserrat was one of the most amazing sights we saw in Spain. Definitely a must see when you go to Barcelona. And using the viator sight to book your tours is the best way to go!Reviewed by: BELINDA C, May 2013
Our tour guide Mark was very knowledgeble and spoke good English. He explained everything thoroughly and the trip/tour was a delight. We loved everything about it. We got tons of awesome pics (don't know how to send them to you though) and great souveniors. We were able to hear the boys choir sing and what a treat that was. The amount of visitors that are allowed into the church for the choir's performance of two songs was overwhelming. We were like sardines in a can. You must get into the church by about 12:15 for a 1:00 performance or you will be standing and/or squished against alot of other people. It was a wonderful visit to a special place and our guide made it a super trip. Thank youReviewed by: Laura V, May 2013

Beautiful afternoon getaway from the city. The guide was informative, the cogwheel train was fun, and Montserrat was beautiful. I also enjoyed the hiking trails there.Reviewed by: sanrionjb, May 2013
Fun trip but Would have liked at least one more hour at Bath as that part of the tour felt rushed. Otherwise very enjoyable!Reviewed by: Jennifer A, May 2013
This was my 3rd Viator tour i have taken, in different countries, and you guys are the best. The guides are so knowledgeable, smart, fun, etc. From now on, every time I travel, I will always try to book tours wit Viator. As long as you are available.Reviewed by: Eugenia G, USA, April 2013

The weather helped @ 20'. Spectacular views and excellent value. I am disabled but the guide kept to my pace.Reviewed by: rossco, March 2013
This was a very nice tour. Montserrat is amazing and should not be missed, and thus the five stars. The group that managed the tour was excellent, with commentary all along the way. The only problem I had was that they gave out tickets but they never said what they were for, so I think they might have been for wine tasting that I missed. So if you are given a ticket of some type, ask what it is for.
I thought the museum up there was worth seeing. It's small so it doesn't take a lot of time, so you can see the museum and the basilica in the few hours you have there.
The guide is good about making sure you know when to go see the boys' choir . Also, it is good to know that there is a cafe a bit down the hill, which I didn't see until I was on the way back to the bus. I spent the extra money on the funicular ride up (it doesn't go to the very top, just the basilica) and I'm not sure it was any better than the views we saw on the bus ride down, which were spectacular.
You won't get a choice of agency when you book through viator, but both agencies we got connected with through viator did a good job. Viator seems like a reliable booking site (I booked both of my day trips through them). You just need to know that you will not be able to control where your meeting spot is, which was fine for us.Reviewed by: Elizabeth G, March 2013
