Overview
Add a culinary element to your tour of Montserrat on this day trip from Barcelona. Unlike other tours, this experience includes a Catalan lunch and a wine-and-cheese tasting session at Oller del Mas, a 10th-century castle set in a 1,000-acre (404-hectare) estate. Enjoy a combination of tours and free time at the monastery and basilica of Montserrat before exploring the cellars of the vineyard. Plus, receive personalized attention in a small-group setting.
Highlights
  • Feast all of the senses on a Montserrat tour with wine
  • Travel to Montserrat and the Oller del Mas wine estate with ease
  • Small-group tour limited to 16 people
What to Expect
Board an air-conditioned coach at a central Barcelona location, and begin the journey to Montserrat. During the ride, your guide provides an overview of the area’s religious significance. On arrival, take a guided tour of the basilica and monastery before enjoying free time to explore independently. Opt to visit the museum, or explore the Holy Cave before you reconvene with your guide. At the end of the visit, get the chance to attend a performance by l’Escolania de Montserrat, one of the oldest boys’ choirs in Europe. The next stop is the Oller del Mas estate winery, housed in a castle that dates back to the 10th century. Following a multi-course lunch inspired by Catalan classics, tour the cellars and vineyards before tasting local wine and cheese during a tasting session. * Please note that l'Escolania does not sing on Saturdays, school holidays, and several dates throughout the year. Your tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

I highly recommend this day tour from Barcelona! Everything was easy, well-organized, enjoyable and fun. We walked to the pick-up at Hard Rock and the bus ride was fine to Montserrat, where you get a bit of a tour and then a couple of hours on your own to explore. I really

Hola Erin! What a nice comment! Ona will be thrilled to read it :) Having time to explore the mountain following your own interests is one of the coolest parts of the full day tour. It is true not everyone in the group will want to do the same, so we also think it is important to have some time for yourself! If you love nature you can hike, if you want to get close to the local history you can visit the church, and if you want to know Catalan art you can explore the museum. We want everything to be fantastic, so we will work on making everything "good" turn to "great"! Lunch is prepared with local and seasonable products and it changes depending on the time of the year, but every time should be fantastic, so we will do our best to reach the 5 stars meal you mention! The winery is located in such an amazing place! We are very happy to know you took great photos there :) Montserrat presiding long lines of vines looks like a fairy tale scenario. So cool you enjoyed it! Thank you soo much for stopping by :)

Hi there! Thank you soo much for such a nice and detailed review! It is great knowing you had a great experience with our tours, and of course, Angès played a very important roll in it! She will be very happy to know how much fun you had with her :) Your advices regarding the organization of the free time in Montserrat are very wise because there are a lot of things to do! Our guides, as Agnès did, always highlight the coolest activities to do around the basilica and the mountain: hiking, visiting the church, going to the museum try some local products at the farm market... But of course some of these activities take more time than others so it is important to prioritize what interests you the most. We are very glad to read you enjoyed the chance to talk to the different members of the group! It is always very nice to know other travelers' experience :) This is something our small groups provide, an intimate and personal atmosphere where it is possible to meet new people while enjoying of a great day away of the city. Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts on the tour :) Best wishes!
