What People Are Saying

"We had a wonderful trip to Barcelona two weeks ago. One of the highlights was the tour of Montserrat and the trail ride in the countryside below it. Our guide, Stephen, was great - he was knowledgeable, fun and gave us a in-depth tour of the monastery and the history of the region. Ask for him by name! Juan, the ranch owner, was equally awesome. He was a knowledgeable horseman and his horses were in good shape and well-suited for their jobs. Three of us are experienced equestrians and one of us is a beginner, and we all enjoyed the ride on the pilgrimage road. This gives you a different and better perspective than a typical tourist activity."
"We went horseback riding in the morning and Juan was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about his ranch and horses. And afterwords, Aćuaro took us up to the monastery via cable car and gave us a very nice introduction to the monastery and told many stories of Montserrats history. And then we were given free time to go inside the beautiful cathedral. Overall, well worth the time and money. Aćuaro, our tour guide, really made the experience unforgettable and you'll be lucky if you get him!"
"This tour is well worth it! Our guide Stephen was amazing-he is very personable and knows a lot about the area and the history of the mountains and monastery. We had a cloudy rainy day, but still really enjoyed ourselves and felt like we got a great experience anyway. The horseback riding was really fun and the monastery and mountains are beautiful. Highly recommend!"
"The guide was very friendly and knowledgable. The weather was miserable while touring the monastery, even so,the magnificent outdoor scenery was outstanding. It was very crowded in the church and gift shop making it difficult to really appreciate. The cable car ride was fantastic but again, extremely crowded. The afternoon horseback ride was fabulous. The weather cooperates and the rain stopped just in time to enjoy the scenery and countryside. Juan was a wonderful guide. This is a man who loves his horses and it shows. All were in fantastic condition, great equipment is used with care to fit and comfort for the horse. A 10 out of 10 experience for me."
"This was by far one of my favorite experiences! The ranch owner was super cool and very informative. You can tell that he really loves his horses. Our tour guide, Flavio gave us an awesome guide at the monastery and we even got to take the cable car down which was an exciting surprise! As a bonus, Flavio had an awesome playlist and was a great driver!"
"We had our trip with Julia. Montserrat is a really beautiful place and I highly recommend this trip. Our guide was excellent. We were caught in the rain unfortunately but the trip was still loads of fun. I want to return there in the future."
