Fantastic tour guide and destinations, so-so wine

Edu was a fantastic guide—super friendly, knowledgeable, and funny. He offered to provide more tips for stuff to do around Barcelona and Catalonia. We enjoyed traveling to Montserrat, though we felt a little awkward walking through the basilica, and wish there were more done to avoid disturbing worshippers. The castle was a cool setting though the wine wasn’t our favorite.

A MUST-DO day trip from Barcelona!!
Hollie_F

My husband and I did this tour a few days ago as part of our honeymoon. Our tour guide was Edu and he was AMAZING. He was extremely nice, and knowledgeable about everything. He gave us a whole Spain/Catalonia history lesson on the bus, and at Montserrat and in the winery providing interesting details on everything (including the wine itself!!). Montserrat was gorgeous, and the hour of free time provided was great. It provided us with enough time to hike up to the cross of St. Miguel (and get the best views of Montserrat) and to try the free samples of Catalonian liqeurs and sweet coca bread. The winery, in a 1000 year old castle, had delicious wine. The tapas that they served were mostly different meats and cheeses, and included some crema catalana for dessert. All of it was fantastic. The bus transportation from Barcelona Nord was very smooth as well. 5 stars all around. THANK YOU Edu & Castel experience for an incredible day!!!

We had an amazing time exploring Montserrat and going to a close by vineyard. We loved our guide, as he was knowledgeable and charismatic. We learned so much about Montserrat and we loved that we got an hour of free time there after our tour to explore what we wanted (we opted for liquor tasting and food tastings at the farmers stands). The winery was beautiful and had great wines and tapas to offer. We also liked that we had free time at the end there to enjoy another glass and just relax. Highly recommend this tour!

The tour was amazing, so so amazing! Nerea was an amazing tour guide. She was so knowledgeable and clearly cared so much about the history of Barcelona and montserrat. There were two other tour guides for the other groups who took part in the little history/learning session in the bus rides and they were also amazing. Was so fun to learn and experience on this tour. The tour started and left on time. We left BCN at 8:45 and were back to the city around 4:30. If you’re worried that it’ll be super exhausting, don’t be! It was very easy going and the pace was perfect. Enough time to roam around without getting overwhelmed!
