An amazing experience. However the funicular was not operating (no fault of guide) but rather than getting cable car we went down by train as suggested and a bit disappointed that we did not get the cable car. That being said our guide was Fantastic and would highly recommend the experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Montserrat. It was the perfect amount of time to spend there. We visited the monastery, had a nice hike up the mountain (about an hour(, had enough time to eat lunch in the cafe before heading down the mountain in the cogwheel train. The views were spectacular and it was a very pleasant day overall. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great demeanor.

A varied tour with a hike, cable car ride, monastery visit and exciting information about the history and geology of Montserrat. The view from the mountain is unique when the weather is good and our guide imparted interesting facts about the place in an appealing and competent manner. A recommended tour.
