To summarize in 2 words - the best. In addition to being a guide during the tour Florenta is also a chauffeur, historian, photographer and friend. Thank you Florenta for a wonderful tour of Montserrat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very, very much for the review!! I had a wonderful time myself, and I hope we could repeat one day!

Florenta gave us an excellent tour of Monserrat. She picked us up at the port at the scheduled time. On the drive she pointed out historic sites and the history of the mountain. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We arrived at Mountserrat and took the cable car up to the village. We took a tour of the church and gave us the history of the church. After that we took the funicular to the top of the mountain. We took some fantastic pictures. Thank you Florenta

Florenta was our favorite tour guide while in Barcelona! She was the perfect combination of educative, humorous and sweet. Our drive to and from Montserrat were full of pleasant conversation and education. She was great with our 6-year-old: kind, patient and fun...he was utterly smitten. She braved the cable car with us (despite her fear of heights!), and was always willing to adapt the tour to our needs, likes and limitations. We LOVED Montserrat, and were so thankful we had Florenta to care for us!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review!! The entire family was adorable! I hope one day we will meet again, and take the Cable Car to Montserrat, then you will see how much I love the ride now!
Ada LangUnited States
Florenta was great and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour, it would be a shame to come to Barcelona and not see Montserrat. It is a 45 min. drive outside of Barcelona so you would have to give yourself 4 hrs at least. Florenta is accommodating to your schedule and knows the history of the area. Thanks so much Florenta for a lovely day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!! It was a pleasure showing you Montserrat!
Mary WilliamsUnited States
Florenta provided a wealth of information during our wonderful time in beautiful Montserrat! She is warm, knowledgeable and made an already beautiful place PERFECT! I highly recommend tours with her, she will share such history and knowledge with you making the scenery come alive!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Mary!! What a great day we spent at Montserrat! It was a pleasure, and I hope we will repeat someday soon! Good luck with your adventures!
Camille LandryUnited States
We can't say enough wonderful things about our Montserrat tour with Florenta! Not only was she incredibly knowledgeable but she was very personable and friendly. She led us on a wonderful hike before touring the basilica and she was happy to take pictures of our group and offer any other suggestions/recommendations for the rest of our stay in Barcelona. Highly recommend her for any tours while in Barcelona!!
Daniel LevitanUnited States
Florenta is the best. She was prompt, friendly and she loves her job. She is so passionate and excited to tell you about Barcelona and Monserrat. We had such a wonderful day with her. She took pictures of our family and is just the best. She is very knowledgeable about Monserrat and gave us the best views ever. At the end of our tour she gave us a recommendation for lunch and dropped us off there. When we do return to Barcelona we only want Florenta as our guide.

Late rating. Hotel pickup was on time - with about one hour nice drive to Montserrat. During the ride guide provided background information on the area. Florenta provided a nice walking tour of the site. Arrived early enough to get good seats to see and hear the choir. On the return, Florenta dropped us off at a great lunch location within walking distance to the hotel. A very good day!
We had a wonderful guide for our tour of Montserrat. Florenta was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The basilica and the mountain views were spectacular. We were fortunate to arrive early in the day, so that the crowd was still small. There was only a short que to touch the Black Madonna. Florenta delivered us to the port, saving us the hassle of trying to find our way to the cruise ship. We would highly recommend the tour and lovely tour guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review! It was a pleasure to be your tour guide and I am more than happy that I managed to make your trip a little more pleasant!
Michael PereiraUnited States
Excellent, outstanding and very helpful guide.
Four of us spent a wonderful afternoon with Florenta at Montserrat - her knowledge, enthusiasm, tour agenda and obvious love of the area were very evident. It was great to experience this beautiful spot in a small group with a perfect guide. We had never used ToursByLocals before but will definitely do it again for future travel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Tina! It was a pleasure to show you my beautiful Montserrat! I really hope one day you will be back and we could meet again!
We were very pleased with our guide FLORENTA as she was outside our hotel early,had a beautiful new/ safe vehicle & was very pleasant & helpful. We talked a lot & she was very knowledgeable about her city & countryside. Highly recommend her service-5 star rating. Andrea & Alan
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review! It was a beautiful day, and you were a fantastic company! If I could, I would rate you five stars as well! Thank you, Andrea and Alan!
Dave FermaglichUnited States
We had a wonderful day with Florenta. She was so easy to be with and we were able to do everything we had hoped to do. Despite the huge crowds Florenta was able to obtain tickets for the Boy's Choir (a beautiful experience). We rode both the train and cable car. Florenta was so knowledgeable and we learned a great deal about Montserrat. We will recommend Florenta if we hear of anyone who is coming to Barcelona. She made our final day in Barcelona very memorable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review! I am more than happy that I made your last day memorable! It was such a pleasure meeting you!
Shane SmithUnited States
Florence was an excellent guide. Prompt, knowledgeable, engaging and a pleasure to spend the day with. She is an excellent choice.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Thank you for choosing me and giving me the opportunity to show you my favourite place in the world!
Ellen GeisselUnited States
Florenta is PURE SUNSHINE and a wonderful and passionate guide! We all (my husband, myself, and our 18 and 20 year old sons) enjoyed our tour of Montserrat with her- especially the hike on the way down (it was glorious). Even the restaurant recommendations she gave us for when we returned to the city were perfect. We are looking forward to spending more time with her on our next visit to Barcelona next June. Thanks so much, Florenta, for being so informative and yet also so much fun! xoxoxo
Amy DunckelmannUnited States
Thank you Florenta for 3 amazing days touring Barcelona! Each day was so enjoyable. You have incredible passion for your city and you bring it to life sharing your knowledge and the history while making it fun - ever for the teenagers! It was wonderful to get to know you and we hope to see you again one day. We would recommend each of the tours we did with you. The pace was perfect and the hike at Montserrat was a highlight for us all.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Michael! It was a pleasure to know you and to show you and your family Barcelona and Montserrat! I had a great time as well, and I've learned a lot! Thank you! Please do come back in 9 years and let me show you Sagrada Familia (finished!)! Florenta
Susan J.United States
Our time with Florenta was wonderful. I absolutely recommend her as a tour guide. She was organized and an excellent communicator. We enjoyed our conversations; she is well-informed and gave us insights and information we would never have access to if we had ventured to Montserrat on our own. She is delightful to be around, upbeat, outgoing with a lively sense of humor. I wish we could have spent more time with her. If I am ever back in Barcelona, I certainly will!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Susan! It was an amazing day with you girls! I would have loved to spend more time with you too!! You know you have to come back in 9 years, and I will be here waiting! Wishing you the best!! Florenta
Allan ShanbergLaguna Beach, CA., United States
Florenta is excellent, made the trip interesting, fun to be with, too us to a fantastic Tapas restaurant, very knowledgeable on the subject. Cannot give her high enough ratings. We have been to Barcelona in the past but enjoyed this trip with her far more than other visits.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very, very much!! It was such a pleasure to spend the day with you and to show you Montserrat and Barcelona! I am already planning for your next visit!
Florenta is extremely engaging and knowledgable and I recommend her to anyone!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Neil! It was my pleasure to show you Montserrat and Barcelona!

Angela SaporitaUnited States
Florenta picked us up at our hotel and took us to Montserrat for the day. We have taken many tours in Spain, but hers was one of the best. Her English was excellent and very easy to understand. She provided very good insights into the history and culture of Catalonia aso well as many historical facts about Spain. As her phone took better pictures than my camera, she took and sent us several dozen pictures of our tour which was much appreciated! Would definitely recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review! It was a pleasure to spend that day with you and to be your tour guide!
Carol CarilliUnited States
Our recent cruise ended in Barcelona. Fortunately we contacted Florenta to take us to Monserrat for a day and tothe Gothic Quarter. She was very efficient in her response which made our visit memorable. Florenta is an outstanding guide very intelligent, pleasant, friendly and enthusiastic. She goes beyond her tours recommending other sites not to be missed, help with restaurants and got us to a fabulous Flamingo performance. We highly recommend our new friend to make your visit to Barcelona outstanding.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Carol. I felt like I was with friends as well, and hope to see you again one day!
