TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Katherine!!! Even though your flight was delayed one day, it has been great that we could start the Montserrat tour from the airport instead of your hotel. Thanks for choosing me and for such a great morning with you and your son. Francesc
Francesc guided our group of 8 adults to Montserrat. It was probably the best tour we have ever taken right from the moment he met us outside our hotel. He timed every step so that we maximized every opportunity and always stayed ahead of the crowds. We enjoyed his company; we learned a lot, we marvelled at the splendour of the mountain and the history of the monastery.mwell done. This is our second time with Tours by Locals and we will definitely return for more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Joan. For me time has flown, I have enjoyed your party as well. Best Francesc

The drive was comfortable and the sight itself was very interesting. However, I didn't feel that Francesc was very efficient in how we used our time. Had we left the hotel a half an hour earlier, we might have missed more of the big tour bus crowds and had time to ride the funicular, which we very much wanted to do. Linda Ps. It also would have been nice to have had water in the car for an all day tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello William. Thanks so much for your review that without any doubt helps me to improve. I’m so sorry we found so many busses that day. Actually I have anticipated the start time of the tour to 8am to prevent that busses arrive before us. My idea is always to avoid the mass. I’m glad that we could visit the Madonna, latter the Sanctuary and we sat down in the second bench of the Church to listen the boy’s choir (I knew that it was the priority for your wife). Thanks again Francesc

Hire Francesc for this tour! On the way to Montserrat Francesc provided geological and historical explanations to the area - not a minute was lost and it was non-stop information. Once at the Abbey you had a background and you were ready to have the visual filled in of the Black Madonna etc. To break up the "church" experience we did a bit of hiking to end with the most delicious tasting of yogurt and cake -- which Francesc brought to life with stories of his youth. Really special day for us!

I knew nothing of Montserrat before our visit to Barcelona but friends told me we should visit. I'm glad we did. Our tour with Francesc was a great way to see Montserrat. He knew th history as well as the schedule so that we avoided the long lines that formed at times. We greatly enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it.

We loved learning the history, touring the mountain and listening to the choir. A must book tour!

The Montserrat tour with Francesc was the highlight of our 2-week vacation in Spain. Francesc was personable, extremely spiritual and knowledgeable about the monastery and mountain, and we would highly recommend him to others as a guide.
