Had a wonderful visit to the Montserrat Monastery. Our guide was fabulous and so knowledgeable. It was an absolute treat to learn about the vast knowledge in inclusion to generic general trivia about the place. The monastery itself was stunning and the trip right to the top by a tram was a cherry on the cake. We had a great group with us as well, and our guide was so courteous and helpful throughout the tour. A lovely hike back down, as per our pace. Enjoyed every bit of this. Highly recommend doing this tour with GYG.

Wonderful tour with David! While we couldn’t unfortunately go hiking due to some regional restrictions (high risk of fires due to the current heat), it was an incredibly informative trip with stunning views! He was very knowledgeable and provided us with lots of tips and insights, and made sure everyone felt comfortable at all times. We were also given enough time to explore the area on our own, even though the options were a bit limited due to closures of large parts of the park.

My 11 year old daughter and I took this tour and really enjoyed it! A small group of 8 plus our guide. We got to see some of the countryside outside Barcelona, visited Monserrat as well as took a furnicular up to the top of the mountain and walked down seeing some beautiful nature along the way. I would recommend!
