Enjoy Catalunya while learning interesting facts

We had an awesome day thanks to our guide Merak. Everything was well planned and we felt welcome everywhere he took us. Having both group activities and free time to explore on our own was a good fit as well. Loved the wine from a small family owned winery.

¡Hola, Florian! It looks like you thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Merak :) He will love to read your comments! 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!!

Montserrat - excellent day out
Diane_O

Montserrat is well worth a visit. Excellent day out. Food at the winery was lovely but the wine over lunch not so good. Although it said groups of up to 16 people we were on a big bus most of the day with nearly 50 people - but separated into small groups for the sightseeing itself so false advertising in my view. Our tour guide Merat was brilliant!
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Hola, Diane:) We’re very happy to read how much you enjoyed the tour with Merak! He will be happy to read your comments about your day with him :) We are delighted to read that you enjoyed your day with us. Our tours combine heritage and local gastronomy; starting the day in Montserrat, where you can enjoy the beautiful architectural scenery, following with the lunch and wine tasting where you will taste our local products :) On the other hand, we are very sorry to read that you felt that we are false advertising our tours. We try our best to offer the most accurate information possible not only during the tour but also before and after. Because of that, we always have the following information within our products: "There is a limit of 16 people per guide, although transportation will be shared with other groups." It seems that we did not do our job correctly in your case, and we are sorry about it. We are happy that, overall, you had a nice experience with Merak! Thank you for your honest feedback :)

Hi there! It seems like you thoroughly enjoyed the tour with our guides! They’ll be glad to know it :) Castlexperience’s formula is very cool because it combines nature, beauty, history, food & wine in just one tour! Our tours are informative, but they are also easygoing and fun so you can relax and spend a day away of the city while getting in touch with other traits of the local culture :) Thank you for recommending us!

Beautiful day trip to Montserrat
Veronica_D

This trip left nothing to be desired. Our guide, Merak, was kind, informative, funny, and clever. The long day was broken up into so many interesting segments that you never got bored. And when there were times for rests on the bus, they encouraged us to close our eyes for a little siesta. Our group of 12 shared a bigger bus with 2 other groups but went off on our own at every stop. There is a boys’ choir that performs at noon at the monastery that requires separate reservations to see. It was not part of our tour though we were at Montserrat at that time. It can be chilly up there - bring an extra layer - we ended up buying 2 at the gift shop! There is a little hike you can do at the top - if you’re interested, wear appropriate shoes & clothing. Lunch was delicious and relaxed - lots of time to get to know other guests. Loved it! Oh, the wine tasting! So yummy! Merak does a wonderful job educating, engaging and entertaining! I would definitely recommend this day trip!
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Hi there! It looks like you thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Merak will love to know that :) Our tours are designed to be a dynamic and complete experience to get in touch with the local culture and the catalan countryside! History, food, wine and beautiful views get mixed in a very funny and easygoing excursion :) We are very happy that you mentioned our wine tasting and lunch. We try to make our best to bring local products to you. We take great care of our products, being all them seasonal and carefully picked to bring the best quality possible. Particularly the wine, we choose ours partners cautiously, and Oller del Mas combines the history of more than a thousand years together with the local production of grapes, and therefore, wine! Thank you so much for recommending us!

¡Hola! Many thanks for posting such a nice comment on our profile! Pol will be delighted to know how much you enjoyed his guiding skills! In Castlexperience we believe visiting a place is not enough to get to know it, it is necessary to experience a bit of its culture in order to really get in touch with the essence the region! And that is what we offer in our tours, experiences lead by the best local guides ever that will make you learn our history and taste our gastronomy and wine while enjoying the most beautiful views of the catalan countryside :) Thank you for joining our crew for a day!

Great experience!

Merak was a very knowledgeable and personable guide. The tour was well organized, although I wish we had more time at the monastery and less time at the winery. The monastery and the surrounding area was the highlight for me, truly beautiful. There was enough time to also go for a short hike with spectacular views. But there is a lot to there even if you stay a whole day. The lunch at the winery was lovely and so was the wine tasting which Merak served himself. HIghly recommended!
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Hola Assia! It seems you thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Merak 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! Thank you for joining us!

Fantastic experience but light on the wine!
Daniel_W

We attended the Montserrat tour and wine tasting as a couple. The coach transfers were very efficient and well-organised. Our tour guide Luis was fantastic and really made the whole day enjoyable. We were provided with great information about the city and Montserrat itself. I could not commend him more highly. Lunch was enjoyable and the winery tour was nice, with information about the growing process and storage. If there was a negative aspect to the experience it was the wine tasting, with only a small glass of white, red and rose provided. There could have been the opportunity to sample more wines or learn more about tasting. I would 100% recommend the experience as a whole and the tour guides are brilliant but for wine purists the wine tasting falls a little short.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Hi there! It looks like you had a great tour with Luis! He will be happy to read it :) Castlexperience’s team is very friendly and dynamic, so our tours are like that too! Our experiences are meant to be relaxing, informative and, especially, funny :) The guides know a lot about Montserrat, all its history, legends and secrets! They will always give the best advices and recommendations on what to do, where to go and, of course, the best places for photos ;) Regarding the winery, the visit to the winery and the tasting is meant to be an introduction to local wines. We hope to do so in an informative, entertaining and relaxed way. Everyone can learn something new: those who know a lot about wine will discover the particularities of the local grapes and this cellar; and those who are taking their first steps in the world of wine, will learn to tell the differences between distinct varieties and aging through the body and the taste of the wines. Nevertheless, we appreciate your honest comments and we will take into account for sure :) As we like to say, there is always room for improvement! Thank you for joining us and for your recommendation!

¡Hola, Jennifer! What a nice review! Marta will be thrilled to read your kind words :) You’re right, she’s a wonderful guide :) We believe it is very important that every single part of the tour is as great as possible. Because of that, we really appreciate your comment about the organisation of the tour :) Thank you for joining us!
