Full description

Experience Montserrat on a full-day wine tour with lunch from Barcelona. Understand why Montserrat is so closely linked to the Catalan identity and also learn about the region's wines with tastings. On the way to Montserrat, your guide will introduce you to this "magic mountain" where Mother Nature meets religion, history, and the identity of the Catalans. Enjoy the stunning landscape of the natural park.

Take a guided tour which includes a short walk to the monastery where you can see spectacular views and get a true feel of the spirituality Montserrat has to offer. After Montserrat, head to a local, family-run winery, just a few minutes away from Montserrat, and one of the most important and beautiful wineries in the region.  In a local restaurant, be served from an exquisite selected tasting menu featuring favorites of the region paired with wines produced organically from the vineyard. In the afternoon, your expert guide will take you to visit the cellar and through the vines for a walk. Learn how the wine is made and discover all its secrets.

This was a good tour. I would give it a five star but we were not able to go to upper front chapel to view the black Santa Maria. Our guide said she did not have any tickets as they were sold out. She said we might get in if we asked politely to enter as individuals. The gate keeper ticket collector was not about to let us in. She said that our guide and tour company should have gotten tickets ahead. Showed us the list of all the other companies who had. So it goes, I don’t care about what challengers the tour company may have had..not enough lead time..not enough guests to spend the 10E for entrance. I just wanted to see this special part of the exhibit. Felt like the ball was dropped. The lunch food and wine was good but it was 3 course, not 4 as advertised.

It was enough free time in Monserrat. Tour guides were good. Lunch was tasty but nothing special. There were only 3 varieties of wine at the tasting. We tried liqueurs also. I would spend more time in a monastery than wine tasting. But it was great to meet and interact with new people on this tour.

My wife and I went on the full-day tour of Montserrat in June 2022. Our tour guide was Mariana. She was excellent and provided us with a friendly environment and information all day. She was very engaged with the group and got to know everyone over the course of the day. For the tour we visited Montserrat and had some free time to hike and do other things. We then went for a nice 4 course lunch followed by a winery visit. The winery was truly amazing and had wonderful views in a castle setting. We would highly recommend this tour! The meeting point is at the bus station and the transportation is in comfortable air conditioned tour buses.
