Itinerary

Disembark your cruise ship at Barcelona port or receive hotel pickup before climbing aboard an air-conditioned minivan to ascend the incline of Montjuic Hill. Visit impressive monuments like the Olympic Ring, and capture fabulous photographs beside Montjuic Castle, a stolid structure that gazes solemnly over the city. 

Then, admire Antoni Gaudi’s modernist masterpiece with a visit to La Sagrada Familia, an extraordinary example of ecclesiastical extravagance, before stopping by Casa Batllo. Stroll down the sophisticated shopping strip of Passeig de Gracia, and  then ascend to the vertiginous vantage point of Park Grüell, a vast outdoor space considered one of the world’s most impressive. See richly decorated sculptures and famous features such as the dragon staircase before your next destination. 

Next, escape the crowds of Barcelona to explore the natural splendor of Montserrat, a rugged mountain declared Spain’s first national park. Absorb the spectacular scenery as you guide offers insight into the area’s history, and then visit the beautiful Montserrat Monastery. Understand why thousands of Christian pilgrims make the arduous journey to the structure each year as you engage in the captivating commentary of a guided tour. 

Climb back aboard your minivan and return to Barcelona’s port (or your hotel) well in advance of your cruise ship’s departure.

Excellent Driver - amazing trip!

Driver was amazing and the tour was just what we wanted. Be sure and pay the extra for the "skip the lines tickets" - well worth it. Also, make sure you take this tour when the boys choir is singing at Montserrat. Well worth it....More

The pick up point is pretty much where you arrange it,. I was coming off a ship so they met me at the pier. They are very responsive to emails-email them and ask them the best place to be picked up or specify your preference.

Yes-visited the area and walked around the entire exterior of the church. An amazing site. We then booked directly with Sagrada Familla (on line) an inside tour the next day. Worked out great.
