This unmissable tour takes you through the heart of Barcelona, the cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region. It begins with a guided walk through the Plaza de Catalunya and the Gothic Quarter.

Montjuic sunset

You will also visit the Barcelona Cathedral, which was constructed between the 13th and 15th centuries. It’s a breathtaking building, well-known for its Well of Geese, which makes for a stunning sight.

Montjuic Castle Cable Car

Before leaving the city, the Montjuic cable car will take you up the hill with breathtaking views of Barcelona. A comfortable coach ride then takes you along the Spanish coastline, past the Olympic Village and along to the Spanish Village (Poble Espanyol). The village is famous for its diverse architectural heritage as it is a recreation of 117 buildings from across Spain.

A Ride To Montserrat

The second half of the tour takes you on a 20-minute train ride to the mountain village of Montserrat. Here, you take a tour of the Basilica of Montserrat, which is one of Spain’s most important pilgrimage sites. It is an architectural marvel and has great religious significance! It is the home of the 12th century Virgin of Montserrat.

Following an afternoon of independent exploring, you meet up for a tasting of classic Montserrat liquors and will travel back to Barcelona city! It’s perfect for those looking for a great day out without doing any planning – just a whole lot of relaxing and fun.

    I really liked the half day tour, we had a great tour guide . It was good getting there early before the crowds. We didn’t fit any long walks in but feel ok about our time there as it gave us a desire to return another time and explore the area further .

    The trip was a memorable one, upon our arrival in the monastery it was a bit early and quite. That's why we were able to listen to our tour guide well and was able to reach and touched the Black Madonna without traffic. Few minutes later the visitors become plenty.

    The tour was great, and the views were amazing. Just wish there was more time since there was a line to go inside which took up most of the free time. If you want to spend more time to wander there, maybe a bit more time is necessary. Other than that, great place to visit and tour guide was nice and informative

    We enjoyed this tour. Also, the guide was engaging and pleasant. The tour felt a bit rushed though. It should be extended for at least another hour..

    I really enjoyed this half day tour. Our guide was excellent and helpful. The sites were interesting and we had majestic views. The only issue would be that the wandering time was too short, as others have mentioned.

    We loved this tour. From beginning to end it was well organized , professional, and I informative. Sylvia was so knowledgeable of Montserrat and was able to move our group through the large Sunday crowds and maximize the experience for our group. What an amazing day!

    Wanted a day trip from Barcelona and so glad we chose this! The monastery at the side of a serrated mountain (Montserrat) is unlike anything we've seen. It's in a beautiful location about an hour bus ride from Barcelona and the views are stunning! May have been able to do without the winery tour, but still a nice chance to see a winery being run by the 36th generation of a family. Tried delicious wines and tapas so it was definitely worthwhile. The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend this tour when visiting Barcelona!

    Worth the money and very informative! Xavi was an excellent tour guide. We enjoyed the whole experience from the liqueur tastings, cable car ride up, we paid extra for the museum, and the tapas and wine tasting.
