I didn't know what to expect from the walking tour I book thorugh Barcelona City Tours. And when I first arrived in Spain and called the tour agency to figure out how the AM pick up would work, they seemed as though they hadn't a clue. I called back a few hours later and spoke with a different rep who knew her stuff and gave me the info I needed in 10 minutes! So if you use this establishment to bookk a tour and you don't like who you speak to, call back. You'll be glad you did. Our tour guide was great! He not only knew the history of the mountain but little tid bits about what we passed on the way there (as advertised). It was a rainy day so I think he was figuring we would not want to stay too long or hike any of the trails, to his surprise we did. He was very easy to follow, always checked on us as we walked through some of the harder terrain and even took pictures of us along then way ( which he has already e-mailed me). My recomendation for you would be this, if you are going to book a private walking tour of Montserrat through Barcelona City Tours, request Pere Sauret Manén as your guide, you will not be disappointed.

We had an incredible half-day of hiking at Montserrat, and would recommend Scenic Walking very highly. Carlos, the owner of the company, who was also our guide, was very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. The cost was quite reasonable, considering the experience, and the personal service.

Regardless of being local or tourist, Scenic Walking Barcelona is a unique experience to discover Barcelona and Catalonia. The combination of nature, sports and explanation is just perfect. Carlos is a great guide. You will have a lot of fun while doing something different.

My friend and I were collected from our central barcelona hotel at 6:15am for the sunrise hike. When we got to the nature reserve we were able to imediately get lovely views of Barcelona with all the lights. Our guide Carlos was fantastic, he was born in Barcelona and has a passion for the city and his local knowledge of flora and fauna is amazing. Whilst walking, he pointed out various plants and flowers and told us their origins and we even tried eating a few things. I am not an avid hiker so was a little apprehensive, but I was able to manage fine as there were only a few steep inclines. Good comfortable walking shoes is a must - I wore flip flops as I had many insect bites on my feet and couldn't get into my walking shoes - I managed fine but would definitely advise more appropriate footwear.
The views are beautiful, the atmosphere is amazing - I had never watched a sunrise before as i am not a morning person - I will be doing this more often. I highly recommend !
