Private vehicle to Montserrat monastery, a cava tasting in the Penedes region, and Gaudí's crypt at the Colónia Guell

A private day tour of the Catalan countryside. Chose from these great options, or plan your own custom route:
* a visit to the Montserrat mountain and its famous monastery and black madonna, an extraordinary landscape with views of the whole country; an optional extra is ride the funicular railway to the top: * the Colonia Güell to see Gaudí's most original work, the crypt of his unfinished masterpiece; * a guided tour and tasting at the famous Cordoniu cava winery; * or the Pedralbes Royal Monastery, a jewel of Gothic art hidden on the edge of the city. Customize your tour, with an option of lunch in a country restaurant.


I'll collect you from your hotel and we'll drive out of the city. It takes about 45 minutes to the Colonia Guell to see Gaudi's extraordinary church and enjoy a walk through the company village. The tour of the historic Cordoniu winery in the Penedes wine region south of Barcelona lasts about 90 minutes. In Montserrat we will have a good walk around, visit the Basilica to see the Black Madonna and ride the funicular railway up to the top of the mountain for the wonderful views across Catalunya.
We can stop for lunch in Montserrat, in a country restaurant or at the Colonia Guell.
If you prefer we can change one of the sites for a visit to the Royal Monastery in Pedralbes.
We will be back at your hotel in Barcelona by late afternoon.

A Recent Review of this tour

Jim was a great guide and a gentleman of the world. The drive to Monserrat is about an hour each way, and we truly enjoyed talking with Jim the entire time. He is extremely knowledgeable and well read, and is — I think — a can't-miss guide. Thank you Jim.
