Traveler Tips


  • "Taking this tour leaving Barcelona at 10 am and getting up to the Monastery at 11:30 - 12:00 in tourist season will not allow you time." See review
  • "Do note that there is only ONE winery visited and you get around 4 half-glasses so it's not that much of a tasting exactly." See review
  • "We usually avoid large group tours, but this tour keeps the group size small enough to enjoy." See review

¡Hola! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience! It looks like you thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Marta. She will love to read it :) In Castlexperience we believe there is a way more important to experience a place, than just visiting it. So, for us, the tours are not about sharing information, but about sharing the love for our culture :) And wine…don’t ever forget the wine. Thank you SO much for recommending us!!

The view up at monsterrat was amazing. I wish there was more time to explore and take in the views. The timing felt very rushed up at the mountain and I didn’t feel relaxed to enjoy it. The winery was ok.

¡Hola, Tricia! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! We’re happy to read how much you enjoyed Montserrat's views! They are truly amazing, indeed! We are very sorry you felt disappointed about your time with us. It is true that Montserrat is an incredible place that offers a great number of activities to do while being there. We always say that we could spend days in Montserrat without getting bored! The truth is that we had another tour with more free time in Montserrat, but we had to stop operating it due to the consequences the pandemic had in our company. We hope we can operate it again next year :) We are sorry to read tha tyou did not feel relaxed nor enjoy the tour as our main goal is that! Our tours are meant to connect our guests with the local culture, and local gastronomy while having a nice and relax day. We honestly appreciate your feedback because it is the best way to know our flaws and improve our tours. We hope you have the opportunity to come back to Montserrat to enjoy again the views. Thank you again for sharing your experience :)

Marta MADE this experience. She included every person of the group in conversation and was so thoughtful throughout the tour. Montserrat was BEAUTIFUL. It was a great way to divide our time up in Barcelona. It was very easy to sign up, to follow the directions, and to navigate. Please do this tour!

Marta will love to know it :) We want all of you to discover the beauty of our region, history and wine, and the guides are very committed to it! So, as Marta did, they go out of their way to ensure you enjoy the day! In the end, Castlexperience’s tours are meant to be experiences and not just visits :) Many thanks for choosing us!

Montserrat is amazing. The view is awesome and the train ride there through the mountains was great.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
¡Hola, John! Thank you so much for your kind recommendation! We love to know how much you enjoyed the tour :) We couldn’t agree more! Montserrat is only an hour away from Barcelona, and it is absolutely worthy escaping the city and relax in touch with nature for a while! Many thanks for your recommendation!

We had a Great time with our guide Luis, he makes the trip very entertained. One wine testing included; food and wine was good.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Hola! It seems you thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Luis will love to know it :) Tasting the food and the wine of a region is a great way of discovering that region’s culture! In our tours, we try to offer a gastronomical and oenological experience to take you closer to the local way of life. For us, the word “local” has great meaning when it comes to culture, so the wine and the food tasted in our tours are a great sample of the local production! Many thanks for joining us!

Pol is an excellent guide with rich knowledge on Montserrat and the region’s wine. The food was excellent but served warm. The area is beautiful. The Ollers del Mas was amazingly beautiful with both history and modernization. Don’t skip this, it’s an exceptional experience.

¡Hola! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review!

Our tour David is very nice and helpful. Upon arrival in cogwheel train to that we take us the Abby of Montserrat David explain to us what we are about to see inside the Basilica. Also give us a little bit of a history on the buildings before entering the church. And on our lunch he explain to us what we’re eating and what type of wine that would best suit for the meal that we’re about to have. After our meal we walk in the vineyard and David told us the little history on the current owner of the Vineyard. I would recommend David as a tour guide to anybody who would go and visit Montserrat and do winetasting.

¡Hola! Thank you for you kind recommendation! David will be glad to see how much you enjoyed his tour :) Castlexperience’s formula is meant to offer a fun and informative experience while enjoying a day away of the busy Barcelona! Nature, history, wine and food are the perfect combination to learn some cool & funny things about our culture that can’t be found in the city :) Thank you for joining us!
