Highly recommend to anyone looking to do something a bit off the beaten path :)
Truly a lovely experience. The views from the mountain are amazing and the lunch and the spirit tasting were a nice touch. My wife and I had a nice time.
Our tour guide was wonderful, he brings us to restaurant and famous places to have wine. i been in barcelona more than 2 weeks and that was one of the tour which made me feel very close to the city. "must do this"
I'd definitely recommend it.
We booked this tour because I thought it would be nice to get out of the city for a day. It turned out to be an amazing experience at the monastery and the wine tasting was fantastic.
We had a great hike to the across for a view back to Monserrat (about 20 minutes uphill but doable. Sample the liquer made by the Monks. It is very good and I ended up buying a bottle. Stay to see the Monserrat boys choir. We enjoyed them but be in the church at least 30 minutes early for some good seats in the church.
Are you after a Copa de cava or a caña or a sumptuous selection of tapas or pintxos? Or perhaps, you are in to try a delicious black rice paella? No? Do you want to schmooze the night away in a sultry hidden cocktail bar or to let your hair down and dance to your favorite pop tunes? Barcelona has it all. It is a city alive with the beating heart of unstoppable people. Above all, people who love nothing more than great food, great drinks and great company. A Barcelona food tour, whether a guided affair or by yourself is a great way to get a real taste of Catalan culture. Tapas tour Barcelona by strolling the streets and moving from joint to joint. For instance, nibble on beautiful small plates of Iberico ham, croquetas. Try anchovies, fried squid and of course pa amb tomàquet.
Stop off in El Born at one of the neighborhood’s super trendy vermut (Vermouth) bars. It's the best place to taste a tipple of the herbal, fortified wine. El born also boasts some super, secret cocktail bars. These, in true speakeasy tradition, lay hidden away behind shop fronts and fridge doors and where master mixologists shake and stir up a storm.
Wine tour Barcelona and its surroundings to sample some of the regions best wines. Moreover, gain an insight into Spain’s rich winemaking tradition. Some of the best wine tours in Barcelona are only a short day trip away from the city. And, if you’re looking for a celebratory drink, Cava is the way to go. It is specific to Catalonia (it’s the region's version of Champagne). Conveniently, there are some fantastic cava bars kicking about in Barcelona’s many neighborhoods.
No Barcelona food tour would be complete without a stop off at one of the city’s many markets. La Boqueria sells fresh produce and hosts a ton of stalls that also serve fantastic food. In fact, you can pull up a stool and sample an assortment of tasty treats, or you can get something to go and explore the market.
It’s not all about the best food tours in Barcelona though and with your belly full it’s time to hit the dance floor. La Rambla hosts everything from micro to mega clubs playing everything from pop anthems to techno. The beachfront boasts ritzy clubs with big outdoor terraces and Jamboree Dance Club in Plaza Reial is the best spot in Barcelona to listen to hip-hop.
