Having selected a level that suits your hiking ability, begin your tour alongside your guide. On a Level 1 or 2 tour, enjoy an easy, shorter walk, before taking in views from the summit of the Sant Joan Funicular Railway (own expense). On a Level 3 or 4 tour, hike the St. Jeroni Tail to the top of Montserrat, and on a Level 5 hike, traverse across the mountain and visit the Benedictine monastery nestled in the rock face. At the end of your tour, relax as you’re driven back to Barcelona and dropped back at your hotel.

Incredible
We had a lovely day with Pere in Montserrat.
He picks you up from Barcelona - in our case our air bnb, which is very convenient.
We drove to Montserrat in a comfortable air conditioned mini van. Pere is full of interesting stories about the area and Catalan culture. He then presents three options for the hike. We chose the hardest one. He is an excellent guide - the hike had some climbing involved and we felt completely safe with his expertise. He knows so many legends and tales of the area also. A wonderful day. 100% would recommend. This is the first Tripadvisor review I have ever left and I felt compelled to do so because it was just so excellent. Bring a packed lunch during Covid for a lovely mountain picnic. Thank you Pere!

Brilliant trip - highly recommended
Sep 2020
Our trip was brilliant. We took the one-day trip from Barcelona to Montserrat with Pere. Pere tailored the trip to our walking level (we chose the harder direct route upwards). Pere was very knowledgable about Montserrat with history and many stories about the mountain. Would highly recommend.

22k Step Day and it felt great
My family hiked with Peter to the top of Montserrat and visited the monastery afterward. The mountain is beautiful and Peter did a great job leading the journey. He had plenty of options and let us choose how we spent the day and how strenuous it would be. It was a thrill and he unpacked the history of the region throughout the day. This was a great experience that I recommend.

Amazing Experience!
Oct 2019 • Couples
Pere was an awesome person! This was our favorite thing we did on our trip to Barcelona! The hike was incredible and the Montserrat Monastery was breathtaking. But what made the tour perfect was Pere. He was incredibly friendly and made sure we were having a great time. He was friendly with other hikers and visitors. He brought a snack for us and let us borrow extra jackets for the morning when it was a little chilly. The hotel drop off and pickup was a huge convenience. Père explained the history the entire hike and made it educational as well. We would highly recommend this for everyone to do.

Great day in the mountains!
Feb 2019 • Family
Our guide, Pere, was excellent. He picked us up in front of our hotel and guided us up the mountain. The private tour was great since we chose how long and how difficult of a climb we wanted to do. Pere took pics and sent them to us via Dropbox. Was nice not to have to take all the pics. He even provided snacks at the top of the mountain. (which we devoured) Was a great experience and so nice to be outdoors in the beautiful weather.

Great tour, better guide!
Aug 2018 • Couples
We booked a small group hiking tour of Montserrat on Viator. The guide (Pere) picked us up right on time at our hotel in Barcelona and we discovered we would be the only people on the tour (which was a huge bonus). He drove us the hour out to Montserrat and we started our 2 hour hike up the mountain. He was always willing to stop and indulge my wife’s need to take a million photos. He also helped my wife find a couple geocaches along the way! At the top of the mountain we enjoyed a small lunch which he had packed for us that included cheese, granola bars, local meat sticks, apple sauce, and candies. After the hike there was plenty of time to explore the gift shop and monastery. The tour did go longer than advertised but that was not a problem for us and we felt it was kind of him to actually take more time out of his day to ensure we got the full experience.
Before our hike started, Pere asked if we wanted jackets, I laughed and said 'its too hot for jackets'. As our luck would have it, shortly after our lunch break, a storm rolled in and it was pouring. Pere had 2 small light jackets in his backpack and gave them to me and my wife to help keep us a little bit warm.
I would highly recommend going a tour with Pere!

Pere Saurer was an amazing tour guide. Perfect for my family of 4 (2 kids ages 12 and 14). Fantastic hiking, extremely knowledgeable of the area and kids name this day as one of their most memorable in Barcelona. We highly recommend Montserrat hiking with Pere.

Great small group tour!
This was one of our favorite things! Our guide, Carlos, was so friendly and made the tour very enjoyable! He stopped with us to take pictures whenever and made sure everyone was comfortable and having a good time! We have never done anything like this, and we were so glad we got to experience it and take a move day out of the busy city!

I would say it is important to be in good shape for this! The hike was more grueling than we expected. It was also a longer day than we had planned for, but so worth it!
