Vince was a fantastic tour guide. Really made sure we made the most of our time at Monserrat. Very knowledgeable about wine and winery as well as Montserrat. The tapas was a perfect snack to go along with our wine tasting. It should be noted that the cogwheel train does not actually take you up to the mountain but an air conditioned modern train takes you up the side of the Mountain. Still pretty cool to see the views from there.

A beautiful day of nature, faith, wine and food
Jeanne_P, Apr 2024
Montserrat is a place of such beauty. We loved the train ride up and the walk to the cross. The views were outstanding. The highlight was certainly the lunch and wine tasting at Oller dei Mas. After the tasting, we had the opportunity to try more wines at the wine bar. Our guide, Dani, was great, super knowledgeable.
Thank you Avi!

Great Montserrat & wine tour!
David_G, Apr 2024
There is so much more to Montserrat than the monastery! Berta, Susana and Pol explained history and culture of the area and gave many options for our free time. Enjoyed the full lunch tour of Oller de Mas winery - great food, delicious wine and beautiful grounds of the winery. Highly recommend this tour!
Lovely way to spend the day!
Jenn_T, Apr 2024

Montserrat tour with wine tasting and tapas lunch
christine_j, Apr 2024
Our tour guide Berta was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable, sweet and fun. We loved the tour. Only complaint was we didn’t have the Tapas lunch until 3 and it was small and not very good. Make sure you eat a big breakfast before the tour begins.
Great but avoid Sundays
Angelo_B, Apr 2024
The views from Montserrat are fantastic. Avoid Sundays. Very crowded. Could not get close to view the black Madonna. Guide was knowledgeable
Definitely Go!
Taylor_S, Apr 2024
Susana was so great! She was so so funny, entertaining, and informative. We would want her as our tour guide again for sure. Montserrat was beautiful and totally worth it. The winery was pretty and the 3 course lunch was super good.
Great Tour

Great views and history!
Eileen_M, Apr 2024
The guided tour to Monserrat was a wonderful experience. It was easy to meet at the bus Station and check in. Toni and the crew kept us entertained on the bus talking about the city hotspots and Monserrat. At the mountain, Toni had great suggestions of what to see and eat, as well as sharing the history of the area. The lunch at the winery was delicious and the wine tasting and tour of this amazing castle was outstanding — thanks again Tony! Castlexperience’s follow up emails were great as well!

Ashley_E, Apr 2024
I 100% recommend this tour whether you’re a solo traveler, with a friend/partner, or even a family! I would like to begin by stating to abide by the recommendations given by the company of sticking to the check-in time. I made the error of leaving a little later, not knowing that the terminal would be slightly confusing to find. Nonetheless, once we found our bus, my friend and I were greeted by our tour guide, Vince. Vince is extremely funny! He is very knowledgeable, attentive, and charismatic. He genuinely displays a strong passion for what he does. Vince was attentive to all of his guests needs and accommodations, and he went into thorough detail about what we were seeing. This tour was by far the best one I have experienced, thus far. I would also encourage buying the wine and tapas option, you’ll be in for a pleasant treat! Thank you Vince an crew! 😊
Response from Host, Apr 2024
Dear Ashley, Thank you for your enthusiastic recommendation! We're thrilled to hear that you had such a fantastic experience on our tour. It's great to know that Vince made the experience enjoyable with his humor, knowledge, and charisma. We appreciate your advice about sticking to the check-in time and purchasing the wine and tapas option. We'll be sure to pass along your compliments to Vince and the rest of the team. We can't wait to welcome you back for another unforgettable adventure! Warm regards, Castlexperience Team
