Read carefully!

This tour was booked as a combo tour lasting 7 hours! Much to my dismay the visit to Sagrada was not until 3:30pm! I had gotten on the Monserrat tour at 6:45, got off at 11:30! I was thinking I would either stay on the same bus or at least be finished the Combo tour at 2:30 (7 hours). Little did I know I needed to catch the metro and the tour didn’t start until 3:30! I am physically disabled so this timing and the metro ride didn’t suit! Needless to say I wasn’t able to make the second portion of the Combo tour!

A nice combination day trip

This excursion is a great way to catch two renowned churches, Monserrat and La Sagrada Família. However, Monserrat gets busy at the point where we were to meet with the Black Madonna which took a lot of our time to take in the rest of the beautiful site. As for the Sagrada Família, the 3 hour wait between excursions, the lack of transport to the church and the fact that we did not have “tower passes” made this part slightly less alluring. This said, La Sagrada Família is an amazing work of art and well worth visiting.

Skilled guides who knew a lot and conveyed it well!

We had a great day packed with experiences! That the trip up to Montserrat started so early was very good. We skipped queues and we got to see the area in a calm that was lovely to feel. Only has 1 minus: The guide outside La Sagrada Familia didn't show any signs, so she disappeared in the crowd - and we were about to lose our tour. But she was also so skilled that we forgot our slightly hectic start. There is of course a lot to experience in one day, but it was that day in Barcelona that we remember best :-)
