Vince was a fantastic tour guide. Really made sure we made the most of our time at Monserrat. Very knowledgeable about wine and winery as well as Montserrat. The tapas was a perfect snack to go along with our wine tasting. It should be noted that the cogwheel train does not actually take you up to the mountain but an air conditioned modern train takes you up the side of the Mountain. Still pretty cool to see the views from there.

Venturing outside of Barcelona
Becky_V, Sept 2023
Our group of six had a fantastic day venturing outside of Barcelona to visit Mt. Serrat. Philissa was a most attentive tour guide and made the day a success. Highly recommend this excursion.
Spectacular location and awesome guide.
Teresa_H, Sept 2023
Montserrat was on my bucket list and this tour exceeded expectations. Comfortable bus, awesome guides (especially Vince), unbelievable views, great guidance on using 90 minutes free time. Highly recommend.
Beautiful views.
Lynn_S, Sept 2023
Gus, tour guide, did a great job. Weather was perfect and lunch at the winery was quite tasty……………..,.,,,,
A top-of-the-mount experience!
Paula_R, Sept 2023
The views from Montserrat were breathtaking. The mountain isn’t like anything I’ve seen before. The town on top of the mountain is charming. The food was outstanding and the gift options were great. It was well worth the time and expense.
Great way to spend the day
Robert_V, Sept 2023
Beautiful and historic setting. Learning the history was a treat. Riding the cog train up to the top was exhilarating, as was the bus ride back to the bottom and the winery tour, tasting, and tapas. Maria was exceptional in the history we learned from her, and her vast knowledge of the wine and winery.
Memories for a lifetime.
Christopher_B, Sept 2023
Guille, our guide was amazing. The destination and wine tour were stunning. Monserrat is beautiful, the views rival anywhere.
Great experience!
EVA_S, Sept 2023

Not to be missed

Excellent food, wine & experience. A great mix of everything to keep things interesting. Winery was beautiful.

Go for the views, not the food
Kristen_G, Sept 2023
The view is absolutely beautiful. Highly recommend taking the train up and spending a few hours at the top. The winery was also lovely. Took 1 star off because the lunch that was served was awful. The most random and unauthentic food - served a shot glass of soup, cold roasted veggies on bread, what looked like canned tuna on a green salad, stuffed pasta with mystery meat, and some soft cheese with honey for dessert along with awful wine. The wine from the winery I was also unimpressed with. Expensive and not good in my opinion, though I did enjoy going and seeing the estate.
Wonderful day in the Spanish countryside.
Richard_Y, Sept 2023
Our guide Lesly was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and great at answering questions and helping when needed. The tour of Montserrat was nice but we could have used perhaps 30 minutes more time to see everything we would have liked to have seen. The wine tasting and tapas lunch was also excellent, and again Lesly proved to be quite knowledgeable in this area.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Dear Richard, Thank you for this awesome review! I just know Lesly is going to love to read these kind words about herself. We're glad to hear you had a great day visiting with Lesly as your guide. We're pleased the transportation, exploration time, lunch, and wine tasting met your expectations. Your appreciation means a lot, and we're here whenever you're ready for more memorable experiences! Best regards, Castlexperience Team

Fantastic tour!
John_R, Sept 2023
This was a great tour. Nice way to spend the day outside of Barcelona. Montserrat was amazing! The views from the top were unbelievable. So you take a bus from Barcelona to Montserrat and then you get on a cog train which takes you up to the monastery. Our guide then walked us around and explained everything to us. We had some free time to explore more on our own. Then you get on another bus (if you booked the lunch &Winery) that takes you down the backside of the mountain to the winery. Then you sit down for lunch and wine. After lunch you tour the winery. Unfortunately one of the ladies in our party got sick. We didn’t get to have our lunch or tour the winery. But our tour guide and the staff at the winery were amazing. They did everything they could possibly do for us. They arranged for a taxi to pick us up and take us back to Barcelona. I received a call from Castle Experience checking on my daughter. I can’t say enough good things about this tour guide and the company.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Dear John, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We're glad to hear that you found our guides great. It's also great that you appreciated the beautiful property and castle at the winery near Montserrat. However, we're sorry that you can't have the opportunity to enjoy more in the winery. The priority of our team is you are comfortable and have the best experience you can. We appreciate your honest feedback, and we hope that despite the wine experience, you were able to enjoy the other aspects of the tour. Warm regards, Castlexperience Team
A Day in the Clouds of Montserat
Alan_S, Sept 2023
MJ was a fantastic host, giving us an insightful and informative perspective on Montserrat and was quite knowledgeable as the host of the wine dinner and tasting. And just as important, she made it fun and enjoyable. She befriended those on the tour, making everyone feel comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with MJ.

Must do tour!
Louis_L, Sept 2023
Montserrat and the wine tour were the best! We didn’t really care for the lunch. The food was terrible, it seemed poorly thought out. But again, our tour guide, Javi did a fantastic job explaining everything about Montserrat and an even better job explaining the wines! Truly a pleasure to have experienced this moment. Thank you Javi and to his partners, including the drivers!
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Dear Louis, Thank you for your wonderful feedback! We're thrilled to hear that Javi were the best tour guides you've ever had and that they made your day truly unforgettable. Javi's dedication to ensuring you had a fantastic experience, along with his knowledge, kindness, and energy, is commendable. It's always our goal to provide memorable moments, and we're delighted we succeeded in doing so. We are so sorry you didn't enjoy the lunch, we are taking note about your feedback to improve the food of the lunch and give you a better experience. We hope to have the pleasure of hosting you again in the future for more enjoyable and unforgettable adventures. Warm regards, Castlexperience Team

Violeta was charming, knowledgeable, patient and comical! The day was one of the high points of our Barcelona visit… the lunch was such an upgrade from typical “ tour” lunches The wine tasting was “ top shelf” the bus drivers were so skilled and patient ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Great Experience
Kelli_C, Sept 2023
We had a wonderful tour and learned so much. Our guide, Vioa, was informative. The bus ride up gives you time to learn about Barcelona and Montserrat. While there, you have some guided time and then free time. The wine part was very fun too!
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Dear Kelli, On behalf of the team we'd like to thank you for your review, we really appreciate you taking the time out of your day to do so. It was a pleasure having you on tour with us, and rest assured your comment will be passed on to Vio! She is really a great professional, very knowlegeable and enthusiastic. All the best, Castlexperience team
