Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide in central Barcelona and relax during the scenic journey to Montserrat.

Travel first to the Montserrat Monastery, located just outside central Barcelona. Montserrat is considered to be the cornerstone of Catalan culture, history, nature, and spirituality. Learn more about the area from your guide as you tour the atrium and the Basilica, inside of which sits the "Black Madonna." You also see the 15th-century cloister and Santa Maria square.

Continue to Oller de Mas, a 10th-century castle now home to a successful winery. Walk through the vineyards alongside your guide, and then tour the barrel room and production area to discover more about manufacturing methods. 

At the end of the tour, sample fine Spanish wines, complemented by a selection of tapas with dessert. As you taste, your tour guide reveals the secrets behind the wine.

After a relaxing day of wine and sightseeing, return to Barcelona in the afternoon.
Itinerary
Pass By:  
Abbey of Montserrat
As you look through the window, the sun hides behind the silhouette of Montserrat massif, outlining its contour against the sky. In between its peaks mysteries, legends and myths dwell in its rocks and caves. Your imagination plays with all the stories and folklore you have heard and seen from its heights. You have contemplated the Catalan lands extending before you; you have learnt about the centuries that have happened in it. Moors, Christians, castles, battles and noblemen. All these stories exudate from the old stones of the long-ago-fortified houses of the region. In there now, like history, vines sink their roots deep in the dry clayish soil. This, in return, contributes to the result of generations of hard work: unique wines that speak of passion, history and tradition. This whole new universe of local flavors still lingers in your mind and, before you realize, it takes you to the world of dreams on your trip back to Barcelona. What an unforgettable morning.
Pass By:

Enjoy a guided tour in Montserrat and visit all the highlights of the monastery by the hand of your local tour guide.

Meet your tour guide again to get on board for the second part of the tour. Oller del Mas cellar awaits!
Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Oller del Mas
Oller del Mas is not a common winery – its superb ecological wines have earned plenty of awards in the recent years. In fact, one of its wines won the “Best Wine in Catalonia” award in 2018. But the cellar is not only special for its wines. You will take a stroll by the vineyards, learn how the wine is made, and discover all of its secrets. *We work daily with different low-production, family-owned boutique wineries. Due to logistic reasons, you might visit another cellar instead of Oller del Mas.

I really pride myself on researching and planning out my trips and what we're going to do – all the way down to what landmarks we're going to see, etc. However, I want to take the ease off of that and enjoy my time with my parents and decided to book the half-day Montserrat Tour with Tapas and Gourmet Wines. And I'm so glad I did! Montserrat is BEAUTIFUL! The vineyard they took us to had amazing wine and was just as beautiful. Our tour guide Luis was funny and informative. He answered all of our questions and even gave me restaurant recommendations for our last night in Barcelona. The tour bus was also very nice and clean. My parents were very happy I booked this tour and we definitely recommend this tour to anyone!

Must-Do!

I would honestly rate this a 10/10! From an organizational standpoint, the amount of time was perfect, meeting spots were easy to find, Montserrat is beautiful (duh), the winery is INCREDIBLE!, and the tour guides were engaging and fun. Super special shout-out to Marta, who was one of the BEST tour guides I’ve ever had. She had just enough energy to be engaging, funny & witty, but not too much where it feels like it’s not authentic. She is INCREDIBLY knowledgeable about both Montserrat and the winery Oller del Mas and presented the information wonderfully. Both in English and Spanish. Her passion is truly evident and I would recommend her for anybody I send to this tour. I have traveled and gone on many tours around the globe, and she’s truly in my top 5 of all guides. She knew every bit of information, answered all questions, made the day fun, and offered help when asked. Overall, the trip was wonderful. Thank you for providing us with such an incredible experience from Barcelona! This is one of the few tours i would do a second time if/ when I return to Spain.
