We booked a half day tour to Montserrat with In Out Barcelona on the advice of my brother who toured there a couple of months before.
My family of five were met at our building by our guide Valentina, together with a friendly driver and a couple from Brazil. Valentina speaks several languages so it was no problem keeping all passengers informed and happy as we made our way up the mountain to Monserrat.
Professionally, Valentina was far and away a wonderful guide--informative, helpful, knowledgable, answering all of our questions with thoughtful answers. We really took advantage of her expertise and she gave us some great insights as to some of the things we would be seeing and experiencing.
Personally, Valentina could not have been nicer to my family and the couple from Brazil. My husband has back and balance issues and Valentina hopped off the van to acquire a wheel chair to make his visit so easier for him and for us.
When we got back to the U.S. we all agreed that our visit to Montserrat was a highlight of our vacation in Spain. The history, the stunning views, the boys' choir...amazing. And Valentina was the icing on the cake!
