What to Expect
Begin your private tour with pickup from your Barcelona hotel by air-conditioned minivan. Meet your guide and enjoy the scenic drive as you head northwest toward Montserrat, listening to illuminating commentary about the legends associated with the landscape. Having selected a level that suits your hiking ability, begin your tour alongside your guide. On a Level 1 or 2 tour, enjoy an easy, shorter walk, before taking in views from the summit of the Sant Joan Funicular Railway (own expense). On a Level 3 or 4 tour, hike the St. Jeroni Tail to the top of Montserrat, and on a Level 5 hike, traverse across the mountain and visit the Benedictine monastery nestled in the rock face. At the end of your tour, relax as you’re driven back to Barcelona and dropped back at your hotel.

My family hiked with Peter to the top of Montserrat and visited the monastery afterward. The mountain is beautiful and Peter did a great job leading the journey. He had plenty of options and let us choose how we spent the day and how strenuous it would be. It was a thrill and

Our guide, Pere, was excellent. He picked us up in front of our hotel and guided us up the mountain. The private tour was great since we chose how long and how difficult of a climb we wanted to do. Pere took pics and sent them to us via Dropbox. Was nice not to have to take
