On excursion: Half Day Trip to Montserrat with Cog Wheel Train from Barcelona
This was a great tour! It was very easy to book online, l was picked up at my hotel by a taxi driver and was dropped off at Barcelona Sants station- there were about 18 people in the group and the whole process of going through security and boarding the train was extremely well organised! It was a breaze...
Our guide, Jessica was fabulous and kind in her approach of Dali Museum with her clearly monumental knowledge; the driver, Albert got us back to station on time in spite of some inclement weather! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. It was a pleasure and the cost very reasonable.

On excursion: The Dali Museum: Half Day Train Tour From Barcelona
Happytovisit.com communicated very well with us when there was a mix up in the bookings, was very accommodating! We were picked up right in the plaza Catalunya which was super convenient. Buses were clean and comfortable for the 1 hour ride to Montserrat. This was our favorite tour we went on in Barcelona. Beautiful views at Montserrat, and we were given about an hour of free time to go off and venture on our own. Our tour guide Agnes kept us laughing and smiling throughout the entire tour. The wine tasting was not only informative, but was also delicious and we had a beautiful view of the winery from our table. It was the perfect day!
