Traveller Tips


  • "Taking this tour leaving Barcelona at 10 am and getting up to the Monastery at 11:30 - 12:00 in tourist season will not allow you time." See review
  • "Do note that there is only ONE winery visited and you get around 4 half-glasses so it's not that much of a tasting exactly." See review
  • "We usually avoid large group tours, but this tour keeps the group size small enough to enjoy." See review

Beautiful Mountains, Great Guide, Amazing Wine
Katie_D

This tour was absolutely excellent. We had Nareeah as our guide and she was so informative and entertaining. I felt like we had enough time at Montserrat to explore and the winery and tapas lunch was a nice touch. Overall, a great way to meet other travelers and learn more about Spain as a whole.

Dear Katie, Thank you so much for your lovely words. We really appreciate you for taking the time to write this review, and specially for mentioning Nerea’s good job. We are glad you enjoyed the tour. Don't hesitate to come to visit us again if you are in Barcelona! Best wishes, Valeria M. Castlexperience team

Beautiful but could have been more organized
John_R
, May 2022
Our tour guide Francesc was great, very fun and friendly. Montserrat is very beautiful and must see. However, there was a lot of time spent waiting for buses to and from the destinations as well as waiting for other groups. The tour seemed a bit unorganized and led to some frustrations amongst the group. Save your money for the "cog-wheel" train portion of the trip and if the regular tour is cheaper, just do that with the bus that takes you to the monastery. The lunch was served in a very hot room on a 90 degree day and the first thing served was hot soup. Fransesc did make up for some of the complaints with the largest pours we have ever received for a wine tasting. This was more of a wine "drinking" experience at the winery so we cannot complain there!

I don’t ever write reviews but I had to the minute I finished this trip. Daniel was our guide and he was not only knowledgeable of Monserrat but of Spain and the history of it all. The lunch option is an experience everyone should do. Absolutely worth every single penny and more. The views and the winery tour are one of a kind. Highly recommend.
