An amazing experience we will never forget!!
Jordan_M

The day was fantastic from start to finish! We started the day at 9 AM, went to Montserrat and saw the monastery which was breathtaking! And then had a couple hours of free time which was plenty to enjoy the views surrounding the area! Then went to the winery and vineyards for lunch and wine tasting… the food was lovely but the portion was fairly small… although you get plenty of wine to make up for it! Edu was our guide and he was very informative and shared some great stories, a top guy! Thanks Edu for a great day!

My family truly enjoyed our Montserrat & Wine tour with the Castlexperience team. Our guide, Nuria was very knowledgeable and friendly. I booked this excursion to provide my grown children with a unique cultural experience outside of the typical tourist attractions within the wonderful city of Barcellona. We all enjoyed our trip and would highly recommend to anyone wanting something a bit different when visiting Barcelona.

Good Tour!
Angela_E

This tour was great! A full day of adventure. It started with an hour bus ride to Montserat, the guides spoke on the history of Barcelona on the way. A tour of Montserat followed with free time, then met back to head to the bus. The bus from Montserat wasn't too long. At the restaurant, we had a soup, chicken, and dessert with two glasses of wine from the cellar we were to tour later. You only get two glasses at lunch, anything more you have to pay for. After lunch, we walked over to the winery. It was cute. We didn't tour the part where they actually ferment the wine, only saw it from above through glass windows. Overall it was a good tour and I really enjoyed our tour guide, Naurime.

Gorgeous views in the mountains and fantastic wine to end the day!
Danielle_S
, Jun 2022
This was a fun activity! The cathedral and the monastery were gorgeous and the views up in the mountains were absolutely breathtaking. It is a very small town with not much to do, so I would have opted for less time in Montserrat and more time at the winery. The wine tasting was superb - you really get a sample of some of the most unique wines in the world. I really enjoyed the free time we got at the end to drink wine on the rooftop patio, enjoy the views, and chat with other folks. Things I would have changed: - Less time at Montserrat and more time at the winery - Lunch at the winery...it was just okay. I didn't think the quality matched the price we paid. Things I loved: - The cathedral/views from Montserrat - Wine tasting - Our tour guide, Daniel. He was very funny, friendly, knowledgeable and grateful for our business.

Dear Danielle, Thank you for your review as for your recent visit to our tours, and for listing the things you enjoyed the most and for giving us some feedback. We are really glad you had a great time in our tour with Daniel. Please rest assured that we will pass your comments. We are sorry to hear the food quality didn't meet your expctations nor the free time given at the winery. We try to have the perfect balance between Montserrat and Oller del Mas, to take the maximum profit of the two locations we offer. All the best, Valeria M. Castlexperience team

Montserrat was a great visit Too little time in the church. There was adequate free time. Wine tour lunch average and too lengthy.

Falls Short of My Expectations...
dorothy_D
, May 2022
Monserrat Monastery was one of the places I've wanted to visit in Barcelona. I was expecting the tour to have a more comprehensive visit of Monserrat. We barely spent anytime in the monastery. I expected to visit the Black Madonna upstairs and light a candle. The lunch was so long drawn 2 1/2 hrs and wasn't the best. The wine tasting at Oller was so so. I wish, the wine tasting was not in a meeting room. Felt the winery needs an open tasting section just like Napa and Sonoma wineries in California.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Dear Dorothy, Thank you for taking the time in writing such a detailed review of our tour. Montserrat is such a beautiful place with so much to see, so it is difficult to cover it all in one day. Our tour aims to be an enjoyable experience for everyone where you get a guided tour so you understand the history of the place etc and then around two hours of free time to explore around. This should be more than enough to light a candle and visit the church. Due to Covid, to visit the virgin´s throne you must book online in advance and unfortunately tickets are not always available, and this is out of our control. Regarding your experience at the winery sorry to have disapointed you Dorothy, but we are in Spain not in California, so things are simply done different and that is the beauty of traveling :) You did have time during the tour to enjoy the wine bar which could be considered an open tasting section. Please accept our apologies for not meeting your expectations. Have a good day!

Far too long and skip the wine tour
Jenna_F

Montserrat was a great place to visit but the remainder of the trip was 4-5 hours too long. The wine is is sub par and the food is too light And too long of a lunch. Very disappointing. Would have preferred to have had the time back so we could see something else. I would never recommend this specific tour

Dear Jenna, Thank you for taking the time in sharing your honest feedback. Sorry to hear that the tour did not meet your expectations. So you know for next time, we do have shorter tours on offer which might have been a better fit for you. Best regards,
