Ask for Pol as your guide when you reserve this tour
Jordan_C
, May 2022
Hands down, Pol our guide was the highlight of this trip. And that’s saying a lot because Montserrat was lovely and the wine tasting at Oller del Mas was delightful. His presence enhanced it by many degrees. Pol is a historian and walked us through how Barcelona developed into an international city. He covered centuries in such an engaging way, helping contextualize the region’s current challenges, including the fight for Catalan independence. Plus, he knows his wine too, which came in handy during the wine tasting. Cons: need more time at Montserrat; adding even just 30 more minutes would add so much Pros: Pol as our tour guide, Montserrat, quality wines at Oller del Mas, vegan option, tapas portions were filling

Dear Jordan, Thank you very much :) Pol will be happy to know how much fun you had with him :) And I am sure that the rest of the team will be delighted to read your lovely comments! Kind regard, Castlexperience Team

Another great Viator experience. Jon was a great guide and his knowledge of the Basilica was excellent. He helped us navigate the Basilica on a Sunday very well so we could see everything we should. Then the tapas and wine tour were a great way to end the day. Thank you

A very enjoyable day with Mariana!
George_K
, May 2022
Mariana was our guide and she was fabulous! She has a wealth of information and was very easy to listen to. We enjoyed going to Montserrat even though there were some challenges with getting into the cathedral due to a special mass that day. We also enjoyed our wine and tapa tasting even though the bus ride was a bit long and windy with the curvy road. I recommend that Viator list the amount of time spent on a bus when advertising this tour in the future.

Dear George, Thank you for your kind words! Mariana will love to read them :) The guiding team is very passionate about what they do! They love history, culture, gastronomy and wine, and what is more important, they love to share it! Looks like things went great on your tour! All the best! Castlexperince Team

We really enjoyed this Monserrat outing. Jon was a fabulous guide, the settings were stunning and it made for a lovely day. My only wish was that our time in Monserrat had been a bit longer. It felt very rushed. Thanks for providing a lovely tour!

This tour is amazing! We get to see the great views at Monserrat and learn about the history from our guide. Our guide Marianna is bubbly and very informative, she told us the stories of Montserrat that we would not have known if we hadn't booked this tour! We definitely recommend this tour and Marianna to others who are interested to visit Monserrat! We also had a great time at the winery where we get to taste some of the wines that are locally produced.
